- OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS KOBE range hood motors can be operated independently of one another.
This KOBE range hood model is operated by two 2-speed switches located on the front of the
hood. Each switch controls a separate motor with high and low settings. (Fig. 5) The low
setting will handle most exhaust requirements while the high speed should be used for heavier
cooking.
The light switch is located to the right of the control switches and must be turned on to use other
control switches. (Fig. 5) NOTE: Before replacing light bulb, turn off range hood. See section
on Changing the Light Bulb. DO NOT use more than a 20 watt halogen light bulb.
The QuietMode™ feature offers continuous ventilation at a greatly reduced noise level. The
LED indicator switch for the QuietMode™ feature is located to the right of the light switch.
When the QuietMode™ switch is turned on, the LED indicator will be lit and both fans will start
operating on high speeds then slow to QuietMode™ regardless of whether one or both fans are
on. When QuietMode™ is switched off; the previous controls will take effect. Remember to
turn off control switches after you are finished.
If motors start slow then it’s time to change the Quiet Mode™ unit. Call for servicing.

- MAINTENANCE OF THE HOOD -
----SAFETY WARNING---INTERIOR OF HOOD MAY HAVE VERY SHARP EDGES; PLEASE
WEAR PROTECTIVE GLOVES IF THE BOTTOM CASING NEEDS
TO BE REMOVED FOR CLEANING OR SERVICING.
Cleaning
To clean the hood surface, use only Luke-warm water and mild soap or detergent solutions. Dry
up surfaces using a soft cloth. CAUTION: Never use abrasive cleaners, paper towels, pads, or
cloths as they may damage the hood finish.
If the hood looks splotchy (stainless steel hoods), you can use an orange based cleaner to clean
the surface of the hood (make sure the cleaner does not get on any control switches). Spread a
light coating over the surface of the hood and leave on for a few minutes (do not leave on too
long or there may be damage to the hood finish). Use a soft cloth to wipe off the cleaning
solution while gently rubbing off any stubborn spots. Use a slightly damp cloth to get rid of any
remaining cleaning solution. Use a dry soft cloth to dry the hood.
To bring the glow back to a stainless steel finish, use a stainless steel cleaner.
To clean range hood fans, turn both motors on high speed and spray a mild degreaser into the
fans. Liquid residue will accumulate in the transparent holders located at the back of the safety
screen. These slide easily in and out for cleaning. The round transparent holders attached to the
fan cover can be unscrewed (turn counterclockwise) for cleaning. (To replace, just screw back in
turning clockwise until it clicks into place.) To clean the fan safety screen, remove the screw
(leave in a safe place), and slide safety screen out. CAUTION: Be careful of hook end of the
safety screen. Both the transparent holders and fan safety screens should be washed with warm
soapy water and completely dried before replacing. (Both are top rack dishwasher safe.)
CAUTION:
Never put your hand into the area housing the fan while the fan is operating.
For the most efficient operation of your range hood, clean the range hood surface, fans, plastic
drip cups and optional filters regularly.

Changing the Light Bulb
1) Make sure light switch is turned off and range hood is unplugged. CAUTION: Wait until
halogen light is cool to the touch before changing.
2) Gently pull out round metal support from the bottom of the halogen light. The halogen light
should drop out of the light cavity.
3) Gently unplug the defective halogen light and discard. Plug in new halogen light (M16 type,
12V 20 watts max.) and push gently back into light cavity.
4) Replace metal support with prongs against the light.
5) Plug in range hood.

down and out. Discard defective fuse and replace with new fuse (8 Amps Recommended)
(making sure it’s securely held). Place fuse gently back into opening and turn knob clockwise.
