qualified person(s) in accordance with all applicable codes
and standards, including fire-rated construction.
■ Do not operate any fan with a damaged cord or plug.
Discard fan or return to an authorized service facility for
examination and/or repair.
■ 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.
■ When cutting or drilling into wall or ceiling; do not
damage electrical wiring and other utilities.
■ Ducted fans must always be vented outdoors.
CAUTION: For general ventilating use only. Do not use
to exhaust hazardous or explosive materials and vapors.
CAUTION: To reduce risk of fire and to properly exhaust
air, be sure to duct air outside - do not vent exhaust air into
spaces within walls or ceilings, attics or into crawl spaces,
or garages.
WARNING: TO REDUCE THE RISK OF FIRE, USE ONLY
METAL DUCTWORK.
WARNING: TO REDUCE THE RISK OF A RANGE TOP
GREASE FIRE:
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.
■ Always turn hood ON when cooking at high heat or
when flambeing food (i.e. Crepes Suzette, Cherries
Jubilee, Peppercorn Beef Flambé).
■ Clean ventilating fans frequently. Grease should not
be allowed to accumulate on fan or filter.
■ Use proper pan size. Always use cookware appropriate
for the size of the surface element.
WARNING: 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.
■ NEVER PICK UP A FLAMING PAN - you may be burned.
■ DO NOT USE WATER, including wet dishcloths or towels
- a violent steam explosion will result.
■ Use an extinguisher ONLY if:
– You know you have a class ABC extinguisher, and you
already know how to operate it.

responsibility to comply with installation
clearances specified on the model/serial
rating plate
Canopy hood location should be away from
strong draft areas, such as windows, doors
and strong heating vents.

VENTING REQIUREMENTS
■ Vent system must terminate to the
outdoors, except for non-vented
(recirculating) installations.
■ Do not terminate the vent system in an
attic or other enclosed area.
■ Do not use 4" (10.2 cm) laundry-type wall
cap.
■ The vent system must have a damper. If
the roof or wall cap has a damper, do not
use the damper supplied with the range
hood.
Venting Method
This island hood is factory set for through
the roof.
A 6" (15.2 cm) round vent system is needed
for installation. The hood exhaust opening is
6" (15.2 cm) round.
Rear Discharge
For the most efficient and quiet
operation
A 90° elbow may be installed immediately
above the hood.
■ Use no more than three 90° elbows.
■ Make sure there is a minimum of
24" (61 cm) of straight vent between the
elbows if more than 1 elbow is used.
■ Do not install 2 elbows together.
■ Use clamps to seal all joints in the vent
system.
■ Use caulking to seal exterior wall or roof
opening around the cap.
■ The size of the vent should be uniform.
For Non-Vented (recirculating)
Installations
If it is not possible to vent cooking fumes
and vapors to the outside, the hood can be
used in the non-vented (recirculating)
version, fitting a carbon filter at the motor.
Fumes and vapors are recycled through the
top grille. Do not block the chimney holes.
Cold Weather Installations
An additional back draft damper should be
installed to minimize backward cold air flow
and a thermal break should be installed to
minimize conduction of outside temperatures as part of the vent system. The
damper should be on the cold air side of the
thermal break.
The break should be as close as possible to
where the vent system enters the heated
portion of the house.
Makeup Air
Local building codes may require the use of
makeup air systems when using ventilation
systems greater than specified CFM of air
movement. The specified CFM varies from
locale to locale. Consult your HVAC
professional for specific requirements in
your area.
7
Calculating Vent System Length
To calculate the length of the system you
need, add the equivalent feet (meters) for
each vent piece used in the system.
ELECTRICAL
REQIUREMENTS
Observe all governing codes and ordinances.
Ensure that the electrical installation is
adequate and in conformance with National
Electrical Code, ANSI/NFPA 70 (latest
edition), or CSA Standards C22.1-94,
