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.

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


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
Carbon Filter Care Guide
Ordering Carbon Filters
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.
Carbon filters have to be replaced approximately every 6 months
depending on the frequency of use. They cannot be washed and
reused. Please replace carbon filters when your kitchen air is no
longer smelling fresh and dispose of the used ones.
Carbon filters can be ordered on: ShopRangeHoods.com or by
phone at: +1 (626) 321-9834. Please ask for Sales.

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 Baking Soda: Pour in baking soda to the solution,

Soak Mesh Filters: Place your filters into the solution



or pad to further remove grease and oil.


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.
