Troubleshooting Tips
TO REDUCE THE RISK OF INJURY
TO PERSONS IN THE EVENT OF A RANGE TOP GREASE
FIRE, OBSERVE THE FOLLOWING*:
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 dishcloths
or towels—a violent steam explosion will result.
D. Use an extinguisher ONLY if:
1. You know you have a Class ABC extinguisher,
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 Firesafety Tips” published
by NFPA.
WARNING –
TO REDUCE THE RISK OF A
RANGE TOP GREASE FIRE:
A. Never leave surface units unattended at high
settings. Boilovers cause smoking and greasy
spillovers that may ignite. Heat oils slowly on
low or medium settings.
B. Always turn hood ON when cooking at high heat
or when cooking flaming foods.
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.
WARNING –
TO REDUCE THE RISK OF FIRE,
ELECTRIC SHOCK OR INJURY TO PERSONS, OBSERVE
THE FOLLOWING:
A. Installation work and electrical wiring must be
done by qualified person(s) in accordance with
all applicable codes and standards, including
fire-rated construction.
B. Sufficient air is needed for proper combustion
and exhausting of gases through the flue
(chimney) of fuel burning equipment to prevent
back drafting. Follow the heating equipment
manufacturer’s guideline and safety standards
such as those published by the National Fire
Protection Association (NFPA), the American
Society for Heating, Refrigeration and Air
Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE) and the
local code authorities.
C. When cutting or drilling into wall or ceiling, do
not damage electrical wiring and other hidden
utilities.
D. Ducted fans must always be vented to the
outdoors.
WARNING –
TO REDUCE THE RISK OF FIRE,
USE ONLY METAL DUCTWORK.
■ Do not attempt to repair or replace any part of
your hood unless it is specifically recommended in

Reusable Metal Grease Filters
The hood has 2 metal reusable
grease filters.
The metal filters trap grease released
by foods on the cooktop. They also
help prevent flaming foods on the
cooktop from damaging the inside
of the hood.
If it ever becomes necessary to replace
the metal grease filters, they may be
ordered from your GE supplier.
To remove, press the filter locks
back and pull the filters down
and out.
To replace, insert the rear filter tabs
in the frame slots at the back of the
opening. Push the filters up and lock
them into place.
NOTE: Before cleaning, make sure the
charcoal filters, if present, are unclipped and
removed. See the Charcoal Filters section.

Consumer Support
Filter locks
For this reason, the filters must
ALWAYS be in place when the hood
is used. The grease filters should
be cleaned once a month, or
as needed.
To clean the grease filters, soak
them and then swish them around
in hot water and detergent.
Don’t use ammonia or ammonia
products because they will darken
the metal. Do not use abrasives or
oven cleaners. Light brushing can
be used to remove embedded dirt.
Rinse, shake and let them dry before
replacing. They may also be cleaned
in an automatic dishwasher.
Troubleshooting Tips
Be sure electrical power is off and all surfaces are cool before cleaning or servicing any part of the vent hood.

governing codes and ordinances.
Note to Installer – Be sure to leave these
instructions with the Consumer.
Note to Consumer – Keep these instructions
for future reference.
Skill level – Installation of this appliance requires
basic mechanical and electrical skills.
Completion time – 1–3 hours
Proper installation is the responsibility of the
installer.
Product failure due to improper installation is not
covered under the Warranty.
Use only with approved cord kit, JXHC1.
Exhaust connection:
The hood exhaust has been designed to mate with
standard 3¼” x 10” rectangular ducting or 7” diameter
round ducting.
If a 6” round duct is required, a rectangular-to-round
transition adaptor must be used*. Do not use less than
a 6” diameter duct.
Maximum duct length:
For satisfactory air movement, the total duct length
of a 3¼” x 10” rectangular, 6” or 7” diameter round
duct should not exceed 65 equivalent feet.
NOTE: It’s important that ducting be installed using
the most direct route and with as few elbows as possible.
This ensures clear venting of exhaust and helps prevent
blockages. Also, make sure dampers swing freely and
nothing is blocking the ducts.
FOR YOUR SAFETY:
WARNING – Before beginning the
installation, switch power off at service panel and lock
the service disconnecting means to prevent power
from being switched on accidentally. When the service
disconnecting means cannot be locked, securely
fasten a prominent warning device, such as a tag,
to the service panel.
Elbows, transitions, wall and roofcaps, etc.,
present additional resistance to airflow and are
equivalent to a section of straight duct longer than their
actual physical size. When calculating the total duct
length, add the equivalent lengths of all transitions and
adaptors plus the length of all straight duct sections. The
charts on the following pages show you how to calculate
total equivalent ductwork length using the approximate
feet of equivalent length of some typical ducts.
1 Ft = 0.3 m
1” = 2.5 cm
* IMPORTANT: If a rectangular-toround transition adaptor is used, the
bottom corners of the damper will
have to be cut to fit, using the tin
snips, in order to allow free
movement of the damper.
Equivalent lengths of duct pieces
are based on actual tests and reflect
requirements for good venting
performance with any hood.

Cut holes at marked locations for duct and electrical
wiring. For the vertical duct, cut out ¾” extra toward
the front of the cabinet so you can move the duct
freely when installing the hood. It may also ease
installation by cutting the hole 10½” instead of 10”.
16 SECURE HOOD
Slide the hood back against the wall. Tighten
the mounting screws. Be sure the screw heads
are in the narrow neck of the keyhole slot.

the control is not set on high, or if ventilation seems
inadequate, check the following:
❏ Knockouts not removed from hood.
❏ Damper blade not opening.
❏ Reduced airflow because the duct is too small
or the duct length is too long.
❏ The duct is blocked.
❏ Undersized or restrictive wall or roof cap.

and you may not need to call for service.
Problem
Possible Causes
What To Do
Fan does not operate

A fuse may be blown or a
circuit breaker may be tripped.
• Replace fuse or reset circuit breaker.
Fan fails to circulate air
or moves air more slowly
than normal
Excessively soiled filter.
• Wash and replace the filters. See the Reusable
Metal Grease Filters section.
Fan continually cycles
off and on
The motor is probably
overheating and turning itself
off. This can be harmful to
the motor. Filter may be
excessively soiled.
• Replace the filter if it is soiled. If it is not soiled,
or if replacing the filter does not solve the problem,
call for service.
Air coming from the
front vent (on some
models) when it is
ducted to the outside
Vent lever is in the
VERTICAL position (flat
against the plastic blower
housing) for recirculating.
• Move the lever back to the HORIZONTAL position
(flat against the metal top of the hood) to vent
to the outside. See Step 10 in the Installation
Instructions for vent lever operation. This is normal
if the hood has been installed to recirculate.
