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 state to state. Consult
your HVAC professional for specific requirements in your area.
Cold Weather Installations
An additional back draft damper should be installed to minimize
backward cold air flow. 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.
Venting Method
This canopy hood is factory set for through the roof or wall. A
6" (15.2 cm) round vent system is needed for installation. The
hood exhaust opening is 6" (15.2 cm) round. To vent through a
wall, a 90° elbow is needed. If exhaust ducting with a diameter of
less than 5.91” (150 mm) or if flat ducting is used, the noise level
of the range hood will Increase and extraction will be less efficient.
Rear Discharge
A 90° elbow may be installed immediately above the hood.
VENTILATION REQUIREMENTS
Range hoods must be ventilated to the outdoors, except for nonvented (recirculating) installations.



LOCATION REQUIREMENTS
Observe all governing codes and ordinances. Have a qualified
technician install the range hood. It is the installer’s responsibility
to comply with installation clearances specified on the model
serial rating plate.
Canopy hood's location should be away from strong draft areas,
such as windows, doors, and strong heating vents.
Recommended heights are shown. Given dimensions provide
minimum clearance.
Do not ventilate the range hood into an attic or other enclosed areas.
Do not use 4" (10.2 cm) laundry-type wall caps.
The length of the range hood and the number of elbows
should be kept to a minimum to provide maximum performance.
For the Most Efficient and Quiet Operation







Use no more than three 90° elbows.
Make sure there is a minimum of 24" (61 cm) of straight duct
between the elbows if more than one elbow is used.
Do not install two elbows together.
Use clamps to seal all joints in the vent system.
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.
Use caulking to seal exterior walls or roof openings around
the cap.
The size of the vents should be uniform.
Cleaning & Maintenance
Cleaning Mesh or Baffle Filters
Types of Metal Filters
Interior Range Hood Cleaning
Mesh and baffle filters can be cleaned with regular household
dish washing soap and hot water. Please wear gloves while
cleaning filters to protect against scrapes or cuts. Exercise caution around sharp metal edges and corners.
Mesh
The unit must be turned off before being cleaned. Also avoid
spraying cleaner directly onto the light bulb or light bulb socket.
You can clean the interior of the vent hood with a standard household degreaser/cleaner and a sponge or rag; it will probably get
quite dirty, so make sure to use something that you don't mind
throwing away afterward.

Exterior Oven Vent Cleaning
Baffle: Type A
Baffle: Type B
The exterior of a vent hood may also be cleaned with a standard
household degreaser/cleaner or a non-abrasive cleanser. Since
exterior range hood cleaning is a lot easier to do, you may want to
incorporate it into your daily or weekly cleaning routine. If your
vent hoods have never been cleaned, you may want to call in a
professional to do the job the first time, as it is very likely that it
will be pretty messy.
AKDY Under Mount Range Hood Installation
ATTENTION HOMEOWNER: These installation steps are meant to be a general guideline for mounting and installing your under cabinet range hood. If
you require assistance, please contact your local contractor. Please exercise extreme caution when handling a range hood to prevent risk of injury and electric
shock. Building codes will vary. It is the buyer or contractor’s responsibility to know local county or state regulations before installation of this range hood.
Preparations:
NOTE: To avoid damage to your hood, prevent debris from entering the vent opening

Decide the location of the venting pipe from the hood to the outside. Please see “Venting Method” section.

A straight, short vent will allow the hood to perform more efficiently.

Try to avoid as many transitions, elbows, and long run as possible. This may reduce the performance of the hood.
IMPORTANT: Peel white or blue plastic protective film off the hood.

Use HVAC foil tape / duct tape to seal joints between the pipe sections.

For installing under cabinets with a recessed bottom, attach 4-inch wide wood filler strips (not provided) on each side. Refer to Figure 1.

Using references in measurements and diagrams provided, create an opening for electrical wires and hood exhaust under the cabinet.
CAUTION: If moving the cooking range is necessary to install the hood, first turn off the power. Always turn off the gas before moving a gas range.


Puncture the knockout holes (for mounting under the cabinet) on the hood as shown in Figure 2.
If necessary, attach two rubber panels with adhesive tape to the rear corners of the range hood. This will; help reduce vibrations and shaking when in operation.
