and you already know how to operate it.
2. The fire is small and contained in the area
where it started.
3. The fire department is being called.
4. You can fight the fire with your back to
an exit.
*Based on “Kitchen Fire Safety Tips” published
by NFPA.
CAUTION—For general ventilating use only. Do

USING YOUR DOWNDRAFT VENT SYSTEM
Safety Instructions
SERVICING
Controls
Turn the downdraft
blower OFF by pressing
the activating switch
again. The air vent will
go down and the blower
will shut off.
The blower can be ON or
OFF and its speed can be
adjusted with the recessed
knob on the right side of
the air vent.
NOTE: For most convenient operation, set the blower
to your favorite speed. The blower will come on to
this speed whenever the activating switch is pressed
and the air vent rises.
Servicing
Turn the downdraft blower
ON by pressing down on
the activating switch. The
air vent will rise.
Knob
Using Vent System
CAUTION: Be careful when raising or lowering
the downdraft. Be sure pots, pot handles and other
objects are clear of the downdraft cover and cannot
be struck or tipped by the downdraft being raised.
• To avoid injury, make sure there are no fingers
around the downdraft cover when it is lowered.
• Keep hands and fingers away from all
downdraft parts.
COOKING TIPS
Canning
When canning foods in a water-bath canner, a gentle
but steady boil must be maintained continuously for
the required time. When canning foods in a pressure
canner, the pressure must be maintained continuously
for the required time.
Use of the blower at a high speed when canning may
reduce the temperature enough to stop boiling. While
canning, we recommend using the downdraft at LOW
speed and using the front surface unit.
3
Cooking Tips
• The high capacity performance of this downdraft
system can increase the cooking times for some foods.
It may take longer to reach high cooking temperatures
if the downdraft is turned on to high right away.
Adjust the fan speed for best cooking results.
For best results when heating oil for deep frying or
when boiling water, use the front surface units or wait
until the water is boiling or the oil is at frying
temperatures before turning on the downdraft.
• The downdraft may not completely capture all the
steam from pans on the front burners.
CARE AND CLEANING
Grease Filter
The efficiency of your downdraft depends on a clean
filter. Frequency of cleaning depends on the type of
cooking you do. Grease filters should be cleaned at
least once a month. Never operate the downdraft
without the filters in place.
To remove: Pull the filters out by grasping them and
pulling straight up.
To clean: Soak and then agitate in a hot detergent
solution. Light brushing may be used to remove
imbedded soil. Rinse, shake and remove moisture
before replacing.
With careful handling, the filter will last for years.
If replacement becomes necessary, order the part from
your dealer.
NOTE: The filters are different sizes. Be sure to
replace them with the longer filter on the left.
When replacing the filters, the long one goes in the
left side.
Blower
Painted or Metal Surfaces
1. DISCONNECT THE DOWNDRAFT
POWER SUPPLY BY REMOVING THE
POWER CORD FROM THE RECEPTACLE.
2. Remove the blower cover.
3. Use a vacuum hose to clean the blower.
Do not immerse the blower in water.
4. Replace the blower cover.
5. Reconnect the power supply.
Clean greasy surfaces frequently, using a mild
detergent. Do not use abrasive cloth, steel wool
pads or scouring powder because they will mar
the surface.
Stainless Steel (on some models)
Clean with warm sudsy water, a stainless steel cleaner
such as Kleen King®, or an all-purpose liquid or spray
cleaner. Always scrub in the direction of the grain.
Rinse thoroughly with a sponge or cloth and clean
water. Dry with a soft, clean cloth.
Do not use a soap-filled steel wool pad; it will scratch
the surface.
