HOOD EXHAUST DUCT
Outside ventilation requires a HOOD EXHAUST
DUCT. Read the following carefully.
EXHAUST CONNECTION: The hood exhaust
has been designed to mate with a standard 31⁄4²
x 10² rectangular duct.
If a round duct is required, a rectangular-to-round
transition adaptor must be used. Do not use less
than a 6² diameter duct.
REAR EXHAUST: If a rear or horizontal
exhaust is to be used, care should be taken to
align exhaust with space between studs, or wall
should be prepared at the time it is constructed
by leaving enough space between the wall studs
to accommodate exhaust.
MAXIMUM DUCT LENGTH: For satisfactory
air movement, the total duct length of 31⁄4² x 10²
rectangular or 6² diameter round duct should
not exceed 140 equivalent feet.
ELBOWS, TRANSITIONS, WALL AND
ROOF CAPS, etc., present additional resistance
to airflow and are equivalent to a section of
straight duct which is 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 chart below shows
the approximate feet of equivalent length of
some typical ducts.

1. Find the studs, using one of the following
methods:
A. Stud finder—a magnetic device which
locates nails.
B. Use a hammer to tap lightly across the
mounting surface to find a solid sound.
This will indicate a stud installation.
After locating the stud(s), the center can be
found by probing the wall with a small nail to
find the edges of the stud and then placing a
mark halfway between the edges. The center
of any adjacent studs should be 16² or 24² from
this mark.
2. Draw a line down the middle of the studs.
THE MICROWAVE MUST BE CONNECTED
TO AT LEAST ONE WALL STUD.
4. While holding the mounting plate with one
hand, draw circles on the wall at holes A, B, C
and D. Four holes must be used for
mounting. If the holes are not used, the
installation will not be secure. Installer
must use these holes for proper
installation. Use toggle bolts through these
holes unless one of them lines up with a stud.
Use a wood screw for studs.
NOTE: Draw a fifth circle inside area E, through
one of the bottom holes to match the location
of a stud.
For outside back exhaust: The microwave
requires a rear wall cutout opening for the rear
wall duct. See the next page on how to prepare
the rear wall cutout opening for outside back
exhaust.
Set the mounting plate aside.
5. Drill holes on the circles. If there is a stud, drill a
3/16² hole for wood screws. If there is no stud,
drill a 5/8² hole for toggle bolts. Make sure to
use at least 1 wood screw in a stud, and 4
toggle bolts in the drywall or the plaster.
