TOOLS & PARTS REQUIREMENTS Makeup Air Electrical drill or ratchet driver 1/2” drill bit for drilling pilot holes 1¼” drill bit for drilling electrical wiring access hole Screwdrivers: Philips & Straight blade Pliers Tape measure or ruler and pencil Electrical supplies for wiring Aluminum foil tape and/or HVAC tape Hammer Jigsaw or saber saw Stud finder PARTS SUPPLIED Body & Main Unit: 1 pc. Installation Manual: 1 set Chimney Cover: 1 set Metal Grease Filter: 1-4 pcs. Hardware: 1 set 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. Ingredients Very hot or boiling water Dishwashing soap or degreaser Baking soda Non-abrasive scrubbing brush or pad Dish cloth or paper towels Instructions Remove the Filters from the Hood: Using the included latch (on mesh filters only), remove them from underneath the range hood. Fill Your Sink Hot or Boiling Water: Hot water will help dissolve hard grease and oil built up on the filters. Add Dishwashing Soap or Degreaser: Pour in a generous amount of cleaning solution and make sure it is completely dissolved in the water. Add Baking Soda: Pour in baking soda to the solution, Soak Mesh Filters: Place your filters into the solution and let it soak for up to 30 minutes. Scrub the Filters: After soaking, take a scrubbing brush or pad to further remove grease and oil. Rinse and Let Dry: Thoroughly rinse with clean water and let dry them with a cloth or paper towels. Reinstall the Filters: Carefully reinstall the metal filters once fully dry. 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. AKDY Under Mount Range Hood Installation ATTTENTION HOMEOWNER: Two people will be required to lift and install the main unit. We highly recommend professional help and an extra set of hands. Measure the distance between the stove top and the bottom of the range hood. A distance of 27” to 30” is recommended.
