Countertop Cutout Dimensions
Venting Requirements
IMPORTANT: Countertops with a bull-nosed front edge are not recommended for these installations.
Some models require a countertop deeper than 25” (63.5 cm); see the
following “Countertop Cutout Dimensions Chart.”
To avoid mistakes, it is recommended that the cooktop and vent
cutouts be drawn on the countertop before making any cutouts.
See the Installation Instructions that came with your cooktop for complete cutout dimensions, location dimensions and installation
details.
IMPORTANT: Make sure there is proper clearance within the wall
or floor before making exhaust vent cutouts.
• Use heavy (rigid) metal vent.
• Venting system must terminate to the outside.
• Do not terminate the vent system in an attic or other enclosed
area.
• Do not use 4” (10.2 cm) laundry-type wall caps.
• Do not install 2 elbows together.
• Do not use plastic or metal foil vent.
• The length of vent system and number of elbows should be
kept to a minimum to provide efficient performance.
• Use no more than three 90° elbows
• Make sure there is a minimum of 24” (61 cm) of straight vent
between the elbows if more than one elbow is used.
• Use clamps or duct tape to seal all joints in the vent system.
• Use caulking tape to seal the exterior wall or floor opening
around cap.
• Do not cut joist or stud. If vent cutout falls over a joist or stud,
a supporting frame must be constructed.
• Flexible metal vent is not recommended. If it is used, calculate
each foot of flexible vent as 2 ft (0.6 m) of rigid metal vent.
Flexible elbows count twice as much as standard elbows.

3. Connect vent system to blower. Vent system must end with a
wall or roof cap. Use clamps or duct tape to seal all joints.
4. Install cooktop according to manufacturer’s instructions.
VENT SYSTEM USE
The retractable downdraft vent system is designed to remove
smoke, cooking vapors and odors from the cooktop area.
• For best results, the vent should be operating before cooking is
started.
• If you use large or tall utensils, place them on the large rear
element or burner surface.
• A higher heat setting than normally used may be needed when
the downdraft vent is operating.
• For gas cooktops, the downdraft vent system may affect the
flame stability and cooking performance. To improve the burner
performance, either decrease the downdraft vent blower speed or
increase the cooktop burner flame setting.
• For gas cooktops with flame sensing ignitions, the downdraft vent
system may disperse the flame away from the spark igniter and
may cause it to continually spark while trying to reignite a burner
that is already lit. To resolve the issue of the cooktop igniter
continuously sparking, either decrease the downdraft vent blower
speed or increase the cooktop flame setting for that burner.
12
Downdraft Use
Use the high suction speed in cases of concentrated kitchen vapours.

NOTE: Downdraft vent will not operate if the filters are not in their
proper position. If the filters’ top tabs are not locked behind the top
flange, the vent may retract but not raise back up. If retractable downdraft vent does not operate after clean filters have been installed:
Push the filter in as far as it will go. When the filter is removed, the
microswitch behind the filter is inactivated. This feature will not allow
the vent system to operate until the filter is properly installed.

and water. Do not use scouring powder or abrasive solutions.

soap-filled scouring pads.
Always wipe dry to avoid water marks.
