ELECTRICAL GROUNDING INSTRUCTIONS
THIS APPLIANCE IS FITTED WITH AN ELECTRICAL
JUNCTION BOX WITH 3 WIRES, ONE OF WHICH
(GREEN/YELLOW) SERVES TO GROUND THE
APPLIANCE. TO PROTECT YOU AGAINST
ELECTRIC SHOCK, THE GREEN AND YELLOW WIRE
MUST BE CONNECTED TO THE GROUNDING WIRE
IN YOUR HOME ELECTRICAL SYSTEM, AND IT
MUST UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES BE CUT OR
REMOVED.
Failure to do so can result in death or electrical
shock.
Installation to wall
(Horizontal duct– 3 1/4”x 10” Rectangular)
• Use the diagram or the hood as a template and mark
the locations on the wall for ductwork, electrical wiring
and keyhole screw slots.
Remove the knockout and the Junction box cover and
install the conduit connector (cULus listed) in junction
box.
Run 3 wires; black, white and green ,according to the
National Electrical Code and local codes and
ordinances, in 1/2" conduit from service panel to
junction box.
For recessed bottom cabinet only
If the cabinets have front, side or back trim, make 2
wood shims the width of the trim and attach them to
the cabinet bottom recess on both sides.

Cut holes at marked locations for duct and electrical
wiring. For the vertical duct, cut out 3/4” extra toward
the front of the cabinet so you can move the duct
freely when installing the hood.
It may also ease installation by cutting the hole 10 1/2”
instead of 10”.
Drive a mounting screw (from the hardware packet)
partway into each center of the narrow neck of the
keyhole slots marked on the cabinet bottom.
Fix the wiring conduit to the hood.
