4. Sufficient air is needed for proper combustion and exhausting of gases through the flue

(chimney) of fuel burning equipment to prevent backdrafting. Follow the heating equipment manufacturer’s guideline and safety standards such as those published by the National Fire

Protection Association (NFPA), and the American Society for Heating, Refrigeration and Air

Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE), and the local code authorities.

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.

Cabinet opening dimensions that are shown must be used. Given dimensions provide minimum clearance.

VENTILATION REQUIREMENTS

Range hoods must be ventilated to the outdoors, except for nonvented (recirculating) installations.

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.

A. Countertop Height

B. Hood height from ceiling to bottom of the range hood filter surface: D-A-C=B

C. 29” (73.66 cm) min. from cooking surface, suggested

31” (78.74 cm) max.

D. Ceiling Height

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.

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 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 temper-atures 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.

Recirculating Installations & Carbon Filters

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 then recycled through the top grille. Do not block the chimney holes and vents on either side.

Installation Steps for Recirculating

Prerequisites:

1 set of carbon filters (2 pcs.) ]”Recirculating Kit”]

Step 1: Remove the mesh or baffle filters

Step 2: Locate the motor and the carbon filter clips on each side

Step 3: Place the carbon filters into the corresponding ends of the motor

Step 4: Twist each carbon filter until it clips into place

Carbon Filter Care Guide

Interior Range Hood Cleaning

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

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.
