2. HEIGHT & CLEARANCE
3. VENTING REQUIREMENTS
IMPORTANT:
 NEVER exhaust air or terminate ductwork into crawl spaces, between walls, ceiling, attics or garages. All exhaust
must be ducted to the outside.
 Hood mounted too low could result in heat and/or fire hazard. Hoods mounted too high will be hard to reach and will lose
its performance and efficiency.
 Use metal ductwork only.
 DO NOT use plastic ventilation.
 DO NOT use 4” (10.2 cm) laundry-type wall caps.
 Fasten all connections with sheet metal screws. Tape all joints with aluminum tape.
 Use caulking to seal exterior wall or roof openings around the cap.
 The ventilation system must have a damper. If the roof or wall cap has a damper, you may opt out from usage of your
range hood supplied damper (for some models only).
For the most efficient & quiet operation:
 A distance of 26” to 30” is recommended between stove top and the bottom of range hood.
 It is recommended that the range hood be vented vertically through the roof with a minimum of a 6” or larger vent work.
 ALWAYS, when possible, reduce the number or transitions and turns. If a long duct run is required, increase duct size from
6” to 7” or 8”. If a reducer is used, install a long reducer instead of a pancake reducer. Reducing duct size will
restrict/decrease airflow.
 The size of the vent should be uniform.
 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.
4. VENTING METHODS
5. ELECTRICAL REQUIREMENTS
IMPORTANT: Observe all governing building codes and city ordinances.
A 120 volt, 60 Hz., AC, 15-amp outlet is needed (fused electrical circuit is required)
It is the customer’s responsibility: To contact a qualified electrical installer, to assure that the electrical installation is adequate and in conformance with
National Electrical Code, ANSI/ NFPA 70 — latest edition*, or CSA Standards C22. 1-94, Canadian Electrical Code, Part 1 and C22. 2 No. 0-M91 - latest edition and
all local codes and ordinances.

12. TROUBLESHOOTING
1.
If the range hood or lights does not operate after installation:
 Check if the range hood has been plugged in. Make sure that all power has been turned back ON.
 Swap out light assembly to working ones to deter mine whether it is caused by defective bulbs.
A.Make sure the range hood is unplugged or turn OFF breaker.
B.Pop out the light by pressing behind the light fixture.
C.Install new light bulb.
D.Put the light set back by pressing it in.
E.Plug in and range hood to test for operation.
2. The range hood vibrates when the blower is on:
 The range hood might not have been secured properly to the cabinet or wall.
 Check if the blower wheel is damaged.
3.
The blower or fan seems weak:
 Check that the duct sized used is at least 6”. Range hood WILL NOT function efficiently with insufficient duct size & loosely secured.
 Check if duct is clogged or if damper unit (half-circular flapper) is not installed correctly or opening properly. A tight mesh on a side wall cap unit might
also cause restriction to the air flow.
4. The lights work but the blower is not spinning at all, is stuck or is rattling.
 The blower might be jammed or scraping the bottom due to shipping damage. Please contact us immediately.
5. The hood is not venting out properly:
 Make sure the distance between the stove top and the bottom of the hood is within 26” and 30” in distance.
 Reduce the number of elbows and length of ductwork. Check if all joints are properly connected, sealed, and taped.
 Make sure the power is on high speed for heavy cooking.
6. The hood is noisier than normal
 The damper was not opened.
 The duct is not secure and causes vibration.
 The smaller duct size than required is being used.
7. Control panel is not active
 Check to make sure the auto function is not on.

13. USE & CARE INFORMATION
Operations:
 Read and understand all instructions and warnings in this manual before operating the appliance. Save these instructions for future reference.
 Always leave safety grills and filters in place. Without these components, operating blowers could catch on to hair, fingers and loose clothing.
 NEVER dispose cigarette ashes, ignitable substances, or any foreign objects into blowers.
 NEVER leave cooking unattended. When frying, oil in the pan can easily overheat and catch fire. The risk of self combustion is higher when the oil has
been used several times.
 NEVER cook on “open” flames under the range hood. Check deep-fryers during use: Superheated oil may be flammable.
Cleaning:
 The saturation of greasy residue in the blower and filters may cause increased inflammability. Keep unit clean and free of grease and residue buildup at all times to prevent possible fires.
 FILTERS MUST BE CLEANED PERIODICALLY AND FREE FROM ACCUMULATION OF COOKING RESIDUE.
 DO NOT operate blowers when filters are removed. Never disassemble parts to clean without proper instructions. Disassembly is recommended to
be performed by qualified personnel only. Read and understand all instructions and warnings in this manual before proceeding.
14. MAINTENANCE
SAFETY WARNING: Never put your hand into area housing the fan while the fan is operating! For optimal operation, clean range hood and all baffle/spacer
/filter/grease tunnel/oil container regularly. Regular care will help preserve the appearance of the range hood.
Cleaning Exterior surfaces:
 Clean periodically with stainless steel cleaner or hot soapy water and clean cotton cloth. Do not use corrosive or abrasive detergent (e.g.
Comet Power Scrub®, EZ-Off® oven cleaner), or steel wool/scoring pads, which will scratch and damage the stainless steel
surface. For heavier soil use liquid degrease such as “Formula 409®” or “Fantastic®” brand cleaner.
 If hood looks splotchy (stainless steel hood), use a stainless steel cleaner to clean the surface of the hood. Avoid getting cleaning solution on or into
the control panel. Follow directions of the stainless steel cleaner. CAUTION: Do not leave on too long as this may cause damage to hood finish. Use
soft towel to wipe off the cleaning solution, gently rub off any stubborn spots. Use dry soft towel to dry the hood.
 After cleaning, you may use non abrasive stainless steel polish such as 3M ® or ZEP®, to polish and buff out the stainless luster and grain. Always
scrub lightly, with clean cotton cloth, and with the grain.
 DO NOT allow deposits to accumulate or remain on the hood.
 DO NOT use ordinary steel wool or steel brushes. Small bits of steel may adhere to the surface and cause rusting.
 DO NOT allow salt solutions, disinfectants, bleaches, or cleaning compounds to remain in contact with stainless steel for extended periods. Many of
these compounds contain chemicals, which may be harmful. Rinse with water after exposure and wipe dry with a clean cloth.
Cleaning Grease Filter / Stainless Steel Filter less Grill:
IMPORTANT: Drain oil from oil containers before oil and residue overflow!
 The metal filters fitted by the factory are intended to filter out residue and grease from cooking. It needs not be replaced on a regular basis but are
required to be kept clean.
 Filters should be cleaned after every 30 hours of use. Remove and clean by hand or dishwasher. Use proper degreasing detergent for stainless steel
and leave to soak if heavily soiled. Dry filters and re-install before using hood.
