Important Safety Instructions
General Safety Precautions
To reduce the risk of fire, electric shock, serious injury or death when using your range hood, follow basic
safety precautions, including the following:
WARNING
•
If you receive a damaged product, immediately contact your dealer or builder. Do not install or use a damaged
hood.
•
Make sure that the range hood has been properly installed and grounded by a qualified installer according to the
accompanying installation instructions. Have the installer show you the location of the circuit breaker panel or fuse
box so that you know where and how to turn the power off.
•
Do not install, repair or replace any part of the range hood unless specifically recommended in the literature
accompanying it. A qualified service technician should perform all other service.
•
Use the range hood only for its intended purpose as outlined in this manual. DO NOT use this range hood to vent
hazardous or explosive materials or vapors. If you have questions, contact the manufacturer.
•
Do not tamper with the controls.
•
Never allow the filters to become blocked or clogged. Do not allow foreign objects, such as cigarettes or napkins, to
be sucked into the hood.
•
If the cooktop and range hood are near a window, use an appropriate window treatment. Avoid long drapes or other
window coverings that could blow over the cooktop and hood, resulting in a fire hazard.
•
Always run the blower(s) whenever the cooktop is operating.
•
Do not leave children or pets alone or unattended in the area where the cooktop and range hood are in use. Never
allow children to sit or stand on an appliance. Do not let children play with a range, cooktop or range hood. Do not
store items of interest to children above or around the cooktop, range or range hood.
•
The minimum vertical distance between the cooking surface and the exterior part of the hood must be no less
than 30” (762 mm). The vertical distance may be longer for the range or cooktop being used. Consult the range or
cooktop installation instructions for the minimum vertical distance from the appliance being used.
•
Clean the range hood only in the manner specified in this manual.
•
To reduce the risk of a range top grease fire:
a. Never leave surface units unattended at high settings. Boil-overs cause smoking and greasy spill-overs that
may ignite. Heat oils slowly on low or medium settings.
b. Always turn hood ON when cooking at high heat or when flambéing food (i.e. Crepes Suzette, Cherries Jubilee,
Peppercorn Beef Flambe’).
c. Clean ventilating fans frequently. Grease should not be allowed to accumulate on fan or filter.
d. Use proper pan size. Always use cookware appropriate for the size of the surface element.
•
TO REDUCE THE RISK OF INJURY TO PERSONS IN THE EVENT OF A RANGE TOP GREASE FIRE:
a. SMOTHER FLAMES with a close-fitting lid, cookie sheet or metal tray, then turn off the burner. BE CAREFUL
TO PREVENT BURNS. If the flames do not go out immediately, EVACUATE AND CALL THE FIRE
DEPARTMENT.
b. NEVER PICK UP A FLAMING PAN - you may be burned.
c. DO NOT USE WATER, including wet dish clothes or towels - a violent steam explosion may result.
d. Use a fire extinguisher ONLY if:
◊
You have a Class ABC extinguisher, and you already know how to operate it.
◊
The fire is small and contained in the area where it started.
◊
The fire department is being called.
◊
You can fight the fire with your back to an exit.

Operating Instructions
Turning on the Blower System
WARNING
The blower system has four speed settings. The
speed is indicated by the number of lights that glow
on the blower speed indicator C .
Never operate the range hood without the filter(s) in
place. Also, do not operate the hood with grimy or
grease-laden filters. Personal injury, fire or damage to the
range hood could result.
• Touch the “+” key D to turn on the blower
system.
Important Operating Tips
• To increase the speed, touch and release the “+”
key until the blower system is at the desired setting.
• Always use the blower when using the cooktop or
range.
• Touch and release the “-” key B on the control
panel to decrease the speed.
• Turn the blower on a few minutes before starting to
cook to establish an airflow pattern in the room.
• Touch and hold the “-” key to turn the blower completely off.
• Adjust the fan speed according to the volume and
weight of the food you are cooking.
• Shut nearby windows and doors, turn off ceiling
fans and close nearby heating and air conditioning
outlets to reduce air currents around the hood.
• Place your largest pots and pans on the back burners when possible.
OFF
• In the interest of safety, heat oils and fats slowly.

Blower Speed Indicator
Operation
NOTE: To conserve energy, the blower system automatically turns itself off after four hours of continuous operation.
NOTE: After 30 hours of blower operation, the control panel will flash. This signal means it is time to
clean the filter system (see page 5). Press the timer
reset key E to reset the timer. The lights will stop
flashing.
Energy Saving Tips
• Do not operate the fan at a speed higher than
necessary to remove heat and smoke. Running at
too high a speed will draw in air from outside the
house, increasing heating and cooling costs.
Main Power Switch
The main power switch is located behind the filter,
on the bottom of the hood, on the opposite side of
the control panel. See page 3 for the location.
• Keep the filter system and hood surfaces free of
grease and grime to improve efficiency.
Remove the filters and push in on the switch to turn
power on or off. The control panel is lit when the
main power switch is on.
• Turn the fan off as soon as all smoke and odors
have been cleared.
Turning on the Lights
• Select cookware of the proper size, material and
construction for the cooking task. Always use lids
on cookware to retain heat and moisture.
• Touch the light key A to turn on the lights.
• Touch the light key again to turn them off.

Care and Cleaning
Removing the Filter
Cleaning
The filter A is located on the bottom of the hood,
directly above the cooking surface.
WARNING
1. Hold the filter in place with one hand and pull back
on the release lever B with the other.
To avoid the risk of fire, electric shock or personal
injury:
•
Turn off power to the hood at the circuit breaker panel
or fuse box before cleaning.
•
Clean the hood only in the manner specified.
•
Use only the types of cleaning solutions specified in
this manual.
•
Thoroughly dry the filter(s) immediately after cleaning.
•
Turn off the cooktop or range and make sure that the
appliance and range hood are cool before cleaning.
2. While pulling back on the release lever, lower the
filter out of the hood. On hoods with more than one
filter, remove, clean and replace all of the filters.
Caution
•
•
Always wipe stainless steel (silver colored) surfaces
with the grain. To prevent scratching, do not use
abrasive cleaners or scrubbers on stainless steel or
glass surfaces.
A
To avoid damage to the blower system, do not
reinstall damaged filters (see page 6 for replacement
part numbers).
B
Cleaning the Filter
Hand wash the filter in hot water with a mild detergent solution or dishwashing soap. You can also
place it in an automatic dishwasher. Dry the filter
completely before reinstalling.
Proper cleaning is necessary to ensure safe operation and maintain hood performance and appearance. The frequency of cleaning should be adjusted
according to the type and amount of cooking. Best
results will be achieved by cleaning soiled components as soon as possible.
Reinstalling the Filter:
1. Insert tabs on the end of the filter opposite the
release lever into the slots toward the back of the
hood (above the hood rim). The release lever must
be facing down.
Cleaning Stainless Steel Surfaces
Clean stainless steel surfaces with a mild solution
of detergent or dishwashing soap and warm water.
Rinse and dry with a soft, lint-free cloth.
2. Pull back on the release lever while sliding the free
end of the filter into the filter opening.
3. Release the lever.
You may also use Dacor Stainless Steel Cleaner. Use
it according to the directions on the package.
Cleaning the Light Lens
Use a mild glass cleaner to remove smudges on the
light fixture lens. You can also clean it with Dacor
Cook Top Cleaning Creme. Use it according to the
directions on the package.
Cleaning the Filter(s)
Clean the filter a minimum of every two
months. To help remind you to clean the
filter(s), the control panel will flash after 30
hours of blower operation. Touch the timer
reset key to reset.

Care and Cleaning
Maintenance
3. Once the lens retaining ring and lens are removed,
pull the old bulb C sideways, out of the socket.
Light Bulb Replacement
4. Using a glove, insert the new bulb into the socket.
Line up the prongs on the new light blub with the
holes in the light socket. Gently push in on the new
bulb until it stops.
Warning
•
To prevent electric shock turn off power at the fuse or
junction box before replacing a light bulb.
•
To avoid personal injury, make sure the cooktop
or range, the hood and the light are cool before
changing a light bulb.
Light bulb replacement is considered to be a homeowner maintenance operation. If all of the lights do
not work, before replacing any bulbs, check to make
sure power is on at the circuit breaker panel or fuse
box.
a
Replace the light bulbs only with Dacor Part No.
101944. See Replacement Parts for ordering
information.
IMPORTANT:
c
• Do not touch the replacement halogen light bulb
with your fingers. Halogen bulbs are sensitive to
the oils from your hand. The oils from your hand
will stick to the bulb and cause it to burn out faster
than normal.
d
• Do not pry out the entire light fixture A , when
replacing the light bulb. It is difficult to reinstall.
Pry out only the the lens retaining ring B , which is
the inner metal ring attached to the light fixture.
b
5. Center the lens D on the lens retaining ring B
and snap it back into place on the light
fixture A .
