WARNINGS
Thank you for purchasing a Sirius Range Hood. Please read all the
instructions in this manual before installing the appliance.
Save these instructions for future reference.
The appliance is not intended for use by young children or infirm persons without supervision.
Young children should be supervised to ensure they do not play with the appliance. If the
range hood is vented, the air so vented must be ducted into a dedicated duct that is not showed
with any other equipment whatsoever. All ducting must conform to all requirements of the local
authority.
If the range hood is to be used inside he same structure (home or building) as any equipment
hat burns combustible material such as oil, coal, gas, etc. then pervision must be made for
make up air. Under certain circumstances, the range hood could create a negative air pressure
inside the structure. This negative air pressure must not exceed 0.04 mbar (please consult
your local HVAC professional for guidance at this point).
The use of combustible material in close proximity of the range hood must be avoided. When
frying, please pay particular attention to fire risk due to grease. Being highly inflammable,
fried oil is especially dangerous. In order to avoid possible fire risk, all instructions for greasefilter cleaning and for removing eventual grease deposits must be followed strictly.
If the rating label in the cooker-hood shows the
symbol
, the appliance is built in class II and
it does not need any ground connection.
If the rating label in the cooker-hood does not
show the symbol
,the appliance is built in
class I and it needs the ground connection.
Only use this appliance as an exhaust ventilation system for the removal of cooking vapors. DO
NOT use to expel flammable substances or any other materials or vapors.
The installation procedures in this manual are intended for qualified installers, service technicians or persons with similar qualified background. DO NOT attempt to install this appliance
yourself.
When performing the electrical connections on the appliance, please ensure that the current
supply is provide with ground connection and that the voltage values correspond to those
indicated on the label placed inside the appliance itself.
Ensure that electrical power is turned off at source before commencing installation. All electrical wiring must be properly installed, insulated and grounded and conform to all applicable
codes and standards.
Make sure all existing ductwork is clean of grease build up, or ductwork should be replaced, if
necessary, to avoid the possibility of a grease fire. Check all joints on ductwork to ensure
proper connection and all joints should be properly taped. Be careful when cutting through
ceilings or walls not to damage any hidden pipes or electrical wiring. Ensure your kitchen has
sufficient air return vents to replace the exhausted air.

BEFORE YOU BEGIN
The manufacturer declines all
responsibility in the event of failure
to observe the instructions given
here for installation, maintenance
and suitable operation of the
product. The manufacturer further
declines all responsibility for injury
due to negligence and the warranty
of the unit automatically expires due
to improper maintenance and/or
installation.
BEFORE YOU BEGIN:
It is advisable to test run the
range hood before installation.
Please read this entire manual and
ensure that you are fully conversant
with the requirements and limitations
DUCTING
(Not applicable if the range hood is
used in re-circulating mode)
WARNING: Do not vent this
appliance into any other ductwork,
spaces between walls, ceilings,
attics, garages or any other confined
space.
External Venting Requirements
When planning new ductwork, always
look for the most direct route to the
outside. Venting can be done through
the roof or directly through the back
outside wall. (See Figure 1) Only
use rigid type metal ducting (plastic
ducting is generally not permitted by
code). Flexible ducting could restrict
airflow by up to 50%. Always fasten
connections with sheet metal screws
and tape all joints with certified
Silver Tape or Duct Tape. Do not
use screws to fasten ductwork to
the hood, only use tape as the
screws will stop the dampers from
opening and your hood will not work.
This hood requires a 6” round duct
outlet. You can increase the duct
size of the duct run but never
decrease it.
Use the shortest and most direct
route possible. Always, wherever
possible, reduce the number of
transitions and turns with as few
sharp angles as possible.
Two
staggered 45 degree angles are
better than one 90 degree. Make
these turns as far away from the
motor exhaust as possible, with as
much space
between each bend
as possible.

hood is 100’. Calculate your duct run
by measuring linear feet and adding
the elbows, transitions and caps
based on the table alongside.
The ducting connection to the hood
must be in line with the central
vertical axis of the range hood 1”
away from the back wall on which
the hood is to be mounted.
The 1” is important to enable the
ceiling bracket (as shown in Figure
2) to pass behind the ductwork
servicing the range hood. Range
hoods may interrupt the proper flow
of combustion gases from fireplaces,
gas furnaces and gas water heaters.
To minimize the risk of drawing
these lethal gases back into the
home, please follow the heating
equipment manufacturers safety
standards and guidelines carefully.
Refer to NFPA and ASHRAE for
additional information.
Figure 2
ELECTRICAL
WARNING: All electrical work must
be performed by a qualified
electrician.
Please ensure that the appropriate
electrical codes or prevailing local
building codes and ordinances are
adhered to.
Ensure that the electricity supply is
disconnected at source. Do not use
an extension cord or adapter plug
with this appliance.
This appliance must be grounded.
Connect to a properly grounded
branch circuit, protected by a 15
amp circuit breaker.
Electrical Supply
This range hood requires a 120V,
60Hz supply and draws a maximum of
3 amps. The electrical supply to the
range hood should be at least 17”
from the underside of the installed
range hood.
For a typical installation, where the
underside of the range hood will be
30” above the counter top and the
counter top is 36” above the floor
level, the electrical supply should be
83” above floor level and no further
than 3” to the right (as you face the
wall) of the central axis of the range
hood.

I N S TA L L AT I O N
Positioning the Range Hood
Determine the center point of the
range hood. This is generally the
center of the range. Make a mark
on the wall a minimum of 25” above
the top of an electric range. If the
range is gas, the ideal minimum
should be 30”.
Using a spirit level, draw a perfectly
vertical line, starting at the center
mark, right up to the ceiling or the
highest point to where the hood will
extend. This is the central axis for
the range hood. Draw a horizontal
line fractionally above where the
bottom of the range hood will be
positioned. This is the underside of
the range hood.
Marking the Fixing Holes for
the Range Hood
Find the marking template provided
called the “Assembly Scheme”.
Place the template against the wall.
Align the horizontal line on the wall
with the horizontal line on the
template (indicated by two heavy
arrows). Now align the vertical line
on the wall with the “Central Axis”
line on the template.
Gently tape the template to the wall
making sure it has no creases or
folds (use a tape that will not
damage the wall finish). There are
three hole positions shown for the
wall bracket. Using a sharp object,
mark the wall through the template
at the center point of the three holes.
Lower down on the template, you
will see three sets of two holes.
Only two of these holes refer to your
model. Check which model you
have and, using a sharp object,
mark the two correct holes. These
holes are used to anchor the range
hood horizontally from inside the
hood once it has been hung from the
main bracket. Remove the template.
Fixing the Main Support
Bracket
(CAUTION: Do not drill through any
utilities inside the wall)
If the range hood will be fixed to
drywall we strongly recommend that
you discard the wall plugs and
screws supplied. These anchors are
only suitable for brick/masonry
applications. We suggest the use of
a more appropriate anchor system
specifically designed for drywall
applications. Wherever possible, it
is advisable to place blocking
between the studs, behind the
drywall, to attach the support bracket
to, (refer to Figure 3).
Drill the appropriate size holes at the
marks made earlier and fix the
Support Bracket (“S”) securely to
the wall.
Ensure that any wall
anchors have been fitted into
Figure 3
3
the lower two holes, as the range
hood will cover these holes once
hung on the Support Bracket (“S”).
Chimney Installation
Locate the bracket (item Y) and
position it with the vertical axis
(marked on the wall earlier) running
through the midpoint of bracket “Y”.
This bracket fits onto the ceiling and
onto the wall to secure the upper
half of the decorative chimney in
place.
The bracket fixed onto the back of
the range hood will drop into the
channel on the top of bracket “S” on
the wall. Ensure the hood is securely
engaged into the support bracket the range hood must clip in behind
the extended lip on the Support
Bracket (“S”).
“Lock” the range hood onto the “S”
bracket using the four machine
screws supplied (refer to Figure 5).
Mark the wall for the two anchors
and mark the ceiling for the two
anchors as indicated in Figure 2,
(page 2).
Fix bracket “Y” to the wall and
ceiling.
Hanging the Range Hood
Prepare the range hood for
installation. Remove all filters to
ensure they do not get damaged
during the installation process. Hang
the range hood on the bracket “S”
(refer to Figure 4).
Figure 4
Figure 5
These screws are also used to make
minor adjustments to the levelling of
the range hood. Ensure the hood is
level. Locate the two holes “C”
inside the housing of the range hood
and secure the range hood to the
wall once the range hood is perfectly
level and vertical. (refer to Figure 6)

Connecting Electricity and Ducting
Figure 7
Please refer to the Electrical Supply
section on page 2 for the required
location of the electrical supply.
CAUTION: Make sure the power is
turned off at source. Make electrical
connections (refer to Fig 7).
Ensure that the plastic flaps at the
exhaust outlet for the fan move
freely and have not become jammed
or stuck.
Connect the appropriate length of
ducting to the fan exhaust point and
join up with the ducting to the
exterior. Figure 8 shows venting
directly through the wall. Venting up
and through the ceiling to the exterior is also possible (refer to Fig 9).
Do not fix the ducting to the range
hood exhaust outlet with screws use duct tape. Use duct tape on all
joints.
Figure 8
Figure 9
Connecting Chimneys
Remove the protective covering from
the decorative chimney and carefully
slide the sections together.
Do not remove the tape strips from
inside the chimney as this protects
the telescoping chimney-piece
from scratching.
Holding the two chimney sections
together carefully position them over
the ductwork and
wiring. Position
the upper chimney so that it can
be fixed via the
holes on the side
of the ‘Y” bracket
on the ceiling
(refer to Figure
10).

Re-Circulating Requirements
If the unit will be used in
re-circulating mode (refer Figure 11),
fit the deflector (refer Figure 12) with
the screws supplied to the upper
telescope chimney.
There are holes in the back upper
edge of the decorative chimney for
this purpose.
Figure 13
A short length of ducting is
connected between the exhaust
outlet on the fan and the deflector to
direct the air back into the kitchen
through the vents at the top of the
upper decorative chimney.
T he c ar b o n f i lt er ( s u pp l i ed
separately) that absorbs odors is
installed behind the aluminium
grease filter (refer to Fig 13).
O P E R AT I NG P R O C E D U R E S
Please read all the instructions
before operating the appliance.
Save these instructions for
future reference.
General Advice
Ensure that the grease filters are in
place. Without these components,
operating blowers could catch on to
hair, fingers and loose clothing.
Keep fan, filters and surfaces clean
of grease and fat. Always turn hood
fan ON when cooking. NEVER leave
cooking unattended.
NEVER dispose cigarette ashes,
ignitable substances or any foreign
objects into blowers.
Cooking that generates flame is not
recommended as this hood is
equipped with a thermal overload
that will shut down the motor if it
senses excessive heat.
When
frying, oil in the pan can easily
overheat and ignite. Heat oil slowly
in an appropriately sized pot
(covering the entire burner) to
reduce the risk of boiling over and
burning.
6
In the event of a range top grease
fire, observe the following:
Switch OFF the range hood. Turn
off the cook top then smother flames
with a close fitting lid, cookie sheet
or other metal tray. If the flames do
not go out immediately:
EVACUATE AND CALL THE FIRE
DEPARTMENT. Never pick up a
flaming pan – you may be burned.
DO NOT USE WATER including wet
dishcloths or towels, as a violent
steam explosion may occur.

MAINTENANCE
The range hood should provide
many years of trouble free use
provided it is properly maintained.

Be sure the lights are cool before
cleaning the hood – they are
halogen and become extremely hot.
Cleaning the Filter
The aluminium mesh filters should
be washed by hand or in the
dishwasher as required. Damaged
and worn filters must be replaced
immediately. (Do not operate blower
when filters have been removed).
Allow filters to dry before replacing
them, otherwise water will be drawn
into the blower.
If a carbon filter has been fitted, it
must be replaced every 6 months as
a minimum, depending on usage
and type of cooking that is
performed.
It is suggested that a spare set of
carbon filters is kept on hand.
These can be ordered from the
supplier of your range hood.
Cleaning the Hood
Do not use abrasive cleaning agents
as these will destroy the brushed
finish.
Light Bulb Replacement
(If in doubt, call 866-528-4987)
Turn blower and lights off.
sure the lights are cool.
Do not remove the entire fixture
(socket) as this is very difficult to
reinstall.
Visually inspect the light fixture and
establish whether the unit has a
smooth or “toothed” metal ring.
If smooth, remove the glass blocking ring by prying out with a sharp,
soft instrument such as a toothpick
(refer to figure 17). Steel instruments
will scratch the surface. Be careful
that the lens does not fall out.
The outside and interior of your hood
should be wiped regularly with a
clean, damp cloth and mild
household dish detergent or
degreaser.
Use a good quality non-abrasive
foaming type stainless steel cleaner
for exterior surfaces.
