HALOGEN SPOTLIGHT - SQUARE TYPE
HALOGEN FIXTURE - ROUND
This is an older style light fixture, included
here for reference. To replace the halogen
bulb in a round fixture:
1.) While supporting the glass so it
doesn’t fall & break, use a small
screwdriver or knife to carefully remove
only the INNER, small metal ring. Do NOT
try to pop out the outer metal ring - that’s
the fixture itself - it will be damaged.
2.) Remove & replace the halogen bulb
(do not touch any halogen bulbs with bare
hands - use a glove or paper towel).
3.) Replace the glass & retainer ring.
LED SPOTLIGHT
Some range hood models are equipped with LED lighting; these modules are
designed for extremely long life, and typically do not require replacement.
However, if a need for replacement arises, please contact us for instructions,
since the LED replacement procedure varies from model to model.

METAL GREASE FILTERS
The metal mesh lters capture airborne grease generated by the cooking process.
Eventually, these lters become saturated and need to be cleaned.
To remove the metal grease lters: locate the locking lever / latch; while pressing or
pulling the latch (depending on the model), support the lter with the other hand, to
avoid dropping & potentially damaging it.
To clean the metal grease lters: wash in dishwasher as you would any other metal
utensils. DO NOT scrub the lter with a brush, since this may damage or compress the
mesh layers and reduce lter efciency. If lters are heavily saturated: soak the lters in
a pan or other container lled with warm water and several doses of de-greasing dish
soap; once most of the grease has been dissolved, clean the lters in the dishwasher as
usual.
Some range hood models have a cover panel (Perimeter Suction System deector
panel), that conceals the lters. The panel may be secured with mechanical latches
(press and release the corners of the panel), or by magnets (simply pull the panel away
from the hood body). The deector panel itself may also be removed for cleaning - see
diagram below. The panel may be cleaned with warm water & soap, or WD-40 spray,
or any other NON-ABRASIVE stainless steel cleaning spray.

CARBON FILTERS (CHARCOAL FILTERS - RECIRCULATING)
Range hoods that are installed in ductless (recirculating, ventless, etc) mode, should be equipped with charcoal filters, in addition to
the standard metal mesh filters. After the metal filters capture the grease, the charcoal filters capture odor particles, before the air is
recirculated back into the kitchen.
PLEASE NOTE: Charcoal filters SHOULD NOT be used when the hood is ducted to the outside.
Charcoal filters are not washable - they must be replaced once they’re completely saturated.
There are 3 types of charcoal filters: rectangular / “standard”, round 6” (modern type), and round 8” (older type).
STANDARD CARBON FILTERS
To remove / replace a standard carbon filter:
1.) Remove the thumbscrew
that holds the filter in place.
2.) Pull the filter off of
the retaining tabs.
3.) Install new filter.
4.) Replace the thumbscrew.
ROUND CARBON FILTERS
Round carbon filters are latched on to the blower itself,
and must be replaced in pairs.
To remove the old filter: rotate the filter ~ 30 degrees
counter-clockwise, until it’s loosened. Pull the filter off the
blower. Repeat for the filter on the other side of the
blower.
To install new filter: align filter with latches, press into
position, rotate until you hear/feel the latch click into
place.
