Before Using Hood
Although the hood is cleaned upon completion of the manufacturing process, you will probably need to clean your
hood again after installation. Wipe the surface of the hood with a good household cleaner applied with a soft cloth,
or stainless steel polish, depending on the finish of your hood. This will leave a protective finish on the hood.

Warnings
READ AND SAVE THESE INSTRUCTIONS
WARNING
WARNING
To reduce the risk of fire, electric shock, or injury when using
your unit, observe the following:
• Installation work and electrical wiring must be done by
qualified person(s) in accordance with all applicable
codes and standards, including fire-rated construction.
• Sufficient air is needed for proper combustion and
exhausting of gases through the flue (chimney) of fuel
burning equipment to prevent back drafting. Follow the
heating equipment 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.
• When cutting or drilling into wall or ceiling, do not
damage electrical wiring and other hidden utilities.
• Ducted fans must always be vented to the outdoors.
• WARNING!: To reduce the risk of fire, use only metal
ductwork.
• CAUTION!: To reduce risk of fire and to properly exhaust
air, be sure to duct air outside. Do not vent exhaust air
into spaces within walls or ceilings, or into attics, crawl
spaces, or garages.
WARNING
To reduce the risk of fire, electric shock, or injury to persons,
observe the following:
• Use this unit only in the manner for which it is intended. If
you have any questions, contact the manufacturer.
• Before servicing or cleaning unit, switch power off at
service panel and lock service panel to prevent power
from being switched on accidentally. When the service
disconnecting means cannot be locked, securely fasten a
prominent warning device, such as a tag, to the service
panel.
WARNING
TO REDUCE THE RISK OF FIRE, ELECTRICAL SHOCK, OR
INJURY TO PERSONS, RANGEHOODS MUST BE INSTALLED
WITH THE VENTILATORS THAT ARE SPECIFIED ON THEIR
CARTON INDICATING SUITABILITY WITH THIS MODEL.
OTHER VENTILATORS CANNOT BE SUBSTITUTED.
3
TO REDUCE THE RISK OF A RANGETOP GREASE FIRE:
1. Never leave surface units unattended at high setting.
Boilovers cause smoking and greasy spillovers that may
ignite. Heat oils slowly on low or medium settings.
2. Always turn hood ON when cooking at high heat or
when cooking flaming foods. (i.e. Crepes suzette,
Cherries jubilee, Peppercorn beef flambé).
3. Clean ventilating fans frequently. Grease should not be
allowed to accumulate on fan or filter.
4. Use proper pan size. Always use cookware appropriate
for the size of the surface element.
WARNING
To reduce the risk of injury to persons in the event of a
rangetop grease fire, observe the following: (Based on
“Kitchen Firesafety Tips,” published by NFPA.)
1. SMOTHER FLAMES with a close fitted lid, cookie
sheet, or metal tray, then turn off the burner. BE
CAREFUL TO PREVENT BURNS. If the flames do
not go out immediately, EVACUATE AND CALL THE
FIRE DEPARTMENT.
2. NEVER PICK UP A FLAMING PAN. You may be
burned.
3. DO NOT USE WATER, including wet dishcloths or
towels a violent steam explosion will result.
4. Use an extinguisher ONLY if
• You know it is a Class ABC extinguisher,
and you already know how to operate it.
• The fire is small and contained in the area
where it started.
• The fire department is being called.
• You can fight the fire with your back to an
exit.

Hood Operation
Always turn on your hood before you begin cooking to establish airflow in the kitchen. Also let the blower run for a
few minutes to clear the air after you turn off your cooking appliance. This will help keep the kitchen air cleaner.
Indoor Hoods
ON/OFF - Blower speed knob—Starts and stops the blower. When
turned on the blower will operate at the previous setting of the speed
control. Push in on the knob to allow it to pop out. Turn the knob
clockwise to increase the blower speed and counter clockwise to
decrease speed. 0 is off, 1 is lowest speed, and 5 is the highest
speed. The type of cooking you are doing will dictate the speed of
the blower you use.

should be purchased locally.
Using Outdoor Hoods
• Outdoor hood models should be installed in a covered yet non-enclosed area. They should also be protected from
natural elements (such as rain) as much as possible.
• Always turn the outdoor hood on to the “HIGH” position before lighting the grill.
• Keep the grill canopy closed as much as possible when cooking so smoke is exhausted from the back of the grill.
This allows for optimum performance of the hood.
• During breezy conditions, outdoor hoods may not perform well.

Settings and Functions
Cleaning and Maintenance
CAUTION
Unplug power cords from control panel before cleaning or
servicing hood.
Product Controls/Operation
Any piece of equipment works better and lasts longer when maintained properly and kept clean. Ventilation
equipment is no exception. Your hood must be kept clean and maintained properly.
Cleaning Baffle Filters
As air passes through a baffle filter, grease particles collect on the stainless steel U-shaped baffle channels
and drip down into the bottom of the filter. Baffle filters are extremely efficient when compared to mesh
filters. The power of the hood is increased as more air passes through a baffle filter than with mesh filters,
which are usually dirty. Baffle filters are almost universally required in commercial installations due to their
superior ability to capture grease. The baffle filters should be examined periodically to assure that all surfaces
and parts are clean. The filters can be washed in a dishwasher or in a sink with hot, soapy water. Simple
periodic cleaning will ensure maximum filter effectiveness.
• Do not use caustic detergent to clean the filters. An abrasive or corrosive cleaner may damage the finish.
• Do not take the baffle filters apart to clean them. It is not necessary and will void the filter warranty.

Cleaning and Maintenance
Maintaining Charcoal Filter (Recirculating Hoods Only)
Replace the charcoal filters every 6 months to 1 year depending on the amount and type of
cooking you do.
To replace, remove the baffle/charcoal filter assembly and slide the charcoal filter out of the
channel and replace with a new one. Do not put the charcoal filters in the dishwasher.
Replacement filters are available through your local Viking Range dealer, or you can call the
Viking Online Store at 1-877-834-8222 or visit vikingrange.com.
CAUTION
For general ventilating use only. DO NOT use to exhaust hazardous or
explosive materials and vapors.
Cleaning Hood Canopy
Finishes in enamel or stainless steel are highly resistant to damage or discoloration due to grease, steam, and
heat—provided that reasonable care is given to the equipment. The following suggestions will help keep your hood
looking new.
1. Do not allow an excessive accumulation of grease. For best results, you should wipe your hood clean with a cloth
dipped in warm, soapy water. DO NOT USE ABRASIVE CLEANSERS, STEEL WOOL PADS, OR ABRASIVE CLOTHS.
DO NOT use cleansers that contain chlorides; the chlorides in the cleaner could damage the stainless steel finish. If
you need to scrape stainless steel to remove encrusted materials, first soak the area with hot towels to loosen the
material, then use a wooden or nylon spatula or scraper. DO NOT use a metal knife, spatula, or any other metal tool
to scrape stainless steel.
2. Every 3 months give your hood a thorough cleaning. On painted surfaces, use a new coat of wax. A good wax
cleaner—available at either a grocery or hardware store—will do both jobs at once. On stainless steel surfaces,
use a good stainless steel cleaner and polish.
CAUTION
Do not use a porcelain cleaner or rough abrasive cleaner.
Renewing Enamel Finish
Renewing Stainless Steel Finish
Regular cleaning is the best way to assure that your stainless steel finish stays bright and unscratched. Use lemon
oil or stainless steel polish to coat and protect stainless steel.
Cleaning Ductless Venting Chamber (Professional Hoods Only)
1. Remove the middle vent by gently raising up and pulling out.
2. Use the same cleaning directions as in “Cleaning the Hood Canopy” section.
3. After cleaning, replace the middle vent.
7
Product Care
If discoloration occurs, you should thoroughly polish the finish on your hood to renew its gloss and luster and to
remove any grease residue which may have a yellowing effect. Use any good enamel polish, refrigerator polish, or
automotive polish.
Cleaning and Maintenance
Replacing the Light Bulbs
When removing bulbs use an oven mitt to protect your hand in case the bulb breaks.
LED Lights - Indoor Models
1. Unscrew bulb.
2. Replace the bulb with a 120 volt, Phillips R20 8-watt LED bulb (8R20/F90 2700 DIM). Can be purchased locally.
