SAFETY PRACTICES & PRECAUTIONS
This Vent Hood system is designed to remove smoke, cooking vapors and odors from the cooktop area.
WARNING:
All wall and floor openings where the vent hood is installed must be sealed.
Consult the cooktop or range installation instructions given by the manufacturer before making any
cutouts. MOBILE HOME INSTALLATION- The installation of this Hood must conform to the
Manufactured Home Construction and Safety Standards, Title 24 CFR, Part 3280 (formerly Federal
Standard for Mobile Home Construction and Safety, Title 24, HUD, Part 280). Three wire power supply
must be used and the appliance wiring must be revised. See electrical requirements on page 1.
■ DO NOT use 4" laundry-type wall caps.
■ Flexible-type ductwork is not recommended.
■ DO NOT obstruct the flow of combustion and ventilation air. Be sure a fresh air supply is
available.
■ Failure to follow venting requirements may result in a fire.
■ Electrical ground is required on this Hood.
■ If cold water pipe is interrupted by plastic, non-metallic gaskets or other materials, DO NOT use
for grounding.
■ DO NOT ground to a gas pipe.
■ DO NOT have a fuse in the neutral or grounding circuit. A fuse in the neutral or grounding
circuit could result in electrical shock.
■ Check with a qualified electrician if you are in doubt as to whether the Hood is properly
grounded.
■ Failure to follow electrical requirements may result in a fire.
■ Be sure all the range and/or cooktop controls are turned off and the appliance is cool before
using any type of aerosol cleaner on or around the appliance. The chemical that produces the
spraying action could, in the presence of heat, ignite or cause metal parts to corrode.
■ Clean the ventilator hood and filters above the range or cooktop frequently so grease from
cooking vapors does not accumulate on them.
■ Service should only be done by authorized technicians. Technicians must disconnect the power
supply before servicing this appliance.
WARNING:
California Proposition 65 - The burning of gas cooking fuel generates some
by-products which are known by the State of California to cause cancer or
reproductive harm. California law requires businesses to warn customers of
potential exposure to such substances. To minimize exposure to these
substances, always operate this unit according to the instructions
contained in this booklet and provide good ventilation to the room when
cooking with gas.

FAN CONTROL
Turn to LO, MED, HI or MAX as needed. Continuous use of the fan system while cooking helps keep the
kitchen comfortable and less humid. It also reduces cooking odors and soiling moisture that create a
frequent need for cleaning.
ALWAYS USE THE MAX SETTING WHEN GRILLING.
LIGHT CONTROL
Turn to HI while cooking or to LO for use as a night light.
HOOD OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS
The blower should be turned on for a few minutes before cooking in order to establish air currents upward through the hood. Thus when heat, smoke, moisture, grease and cooking odors are produced,
they will be carried outside instead of drifting into other rooms. Use the low speeds for normal use and
the higher speeds for strong odors or fumes. Drafts across the range or cooktop will cause the escape
of heat, smoke, moisture, grease and cooking odors from the hood. Such drafts should be prevented
in so far as possible. The best job of ventilation in the kitchen is done where the only air currents are
those created by the blower itself.

USE AND CARE
BLOWER
The motor is operated by LO/MED/HI/MAX speed control switch. You may change the speed of the
motor depending on the amount of grease and smoke you are creating while cooking.
ALWAYS USE THE MAX SETTING WHEN GRILLING.
FILTERS AND DRIP TRAYS
These hoods have reusable metal grease baffles and drip trays. The metal baffles channel grease
released by foods on the cooktop into the drip trays. The baffles also help prevent flaming foods on
the cooktop from damaging the inside of the hood. For this reason, the baffles must ALWAYS be in
place when the hood is used. The grease baffles and drip trays should be cleaned once a month, or as
needed.
To clean the grease baffles and drip trays, drain and wipe all excess grease with a dry paper towel. Soak
them and then swish them around in hot water and detergent. Don’t use ammonia or ammonia
products because they will darken the metal. Do not use abrasives or oven cleaners. Rinse, shake and
let them dry before replacing. They may also be cleaned in the dishwasher.
TO REMOVE:
Grasp the baffle knobs and pull them up, forward and out.
Grasp the drip tray and carefully lift it up and out of the
hood track.
To replace the drip trays:
1. Place and seat the drip tray into the hood track.
2. Slide them left or right until all trays are side-byside in place in the track.
Fig. 02
To replace the baffles:
1. Hold the baffle at the bottom by one of the knobs .
2. Place the other end of the baffle against the inside
front of the hood.
3. Slide it up and push the bottom end back until it
firmly seats into place.
To remove filters (Euro vent hood only):
1. Push handle towards the rear, then rotate the filters
outwards.

USE AND CARE
TO CLEAN HOOD SURFACE
■ For general care, wipe the outside of the stainless steel with sudsy water or household cleaners
such as Fantastic® or Formula 409®, rinse well and dry with clean soft cloth to avoid water
marks.
■ Wipe and dry brushed stainless steel in the same direction as the grain.
■ Do not use abrasive products.
■ To remove finger prints and give added shine use spray cleaners such as Stainless Steel Magic®
and Shimmer®
LIGHTS
CAUTION:
Before replacing the lamps, switch power off at service panel and lock
service panel disconnecting means to prevent power from being switched
on accidentally.
NOTE: Turn off the lights and fan. Allow the lights to cool before handling. If new lights do
not operate, be sure lights are inserted correctly before calling service.
REPLACE LIGHTS
■ Remove the damaged light (twist counter clockwise) and replace with a new 120 Volt, 50 Watt
(maximum) 50° halogen light made for a GU10 base.
WARNING:
Halogen lamps are constructed of a glass bulb with a pressurized internal
filament tube that operates at high temperatures and could unexpectedly
shatter. Should the outer bulb break, particles of extremely hot glass could
be discharged into the fixture enclosure and/or surrounding environment,
thereby creating a risk of personal injury or fire. When replacing the bulb,
let the bulb cool, and assure that power to the light has been turned off.
Never allow the hot bulb to come into contact with water. DO NOT TOUCH
the Light Bulb when in use. They may be hot enough to cause injury.
INFRARED LAMP AND PANEL KIT:
Optional infrared lamp and panel kit can be ordered separately and mounted into your vent hood:
Models available are IR30, IR36 and IR48.
WARNING
To avoid any electrical shock the installation of the IR lamp should be done
by a qualified electrician and before starting the installation of the hood.
