Important Safety Instructions
General Safety Precautions
To reduce the risk of fire, electric shock, serious injury or death when using your appliance, follow basic safety precautions, including the following:
warning
•
If you receive a damaged product, immediately
contact your dealer or builder. Do not install or
operate this unit if it has been damaged, dropped,
has damaged electrical wiring or is not working
properly.
•
Use this downdraft vent only for its intended
purpose as outlined in this use and care manual.
Do not use this unit to vent hazardous or explosive
materials or vapors. This unit is not intended for
commercial use. If you have any questions, contact
Dacor.
•
This downdraft vent must be installed by a qualified
installer according to the accompanying installation
instructions. All installation work must be performed
in accordance with all applicable codes and
standards, including fire-rated construction.
•
Keep all packaging materials away from children.
Plastic bags can cause suffocation.
•
Do not install, repair or replace any part of this unit
unless specifically recommended in the literature
accompanying it. A qualified service technician
should perform all other service. Contact the Dacor
Customer Service Team for examination, repair or
adjustment.
•
•
•
•
•
warning
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
guidelines 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.
•
Never leave a cooktop or range unattended during
use.
•
This appliance is equipped with a three-prong
grounding plug for your protection against possible
electric shock hazards. It must be plugged into
a dedicated, grounded electrical outlet. Where a
standard two-prong wall receptacle is encountered,
it is the responsibility of the customer to have
it replaced with a dedicated, properly grounded
three-prong wall receptacle. Do not under any
circumstances:
Do not store items of interest to children above or
around the range.
Make sure individuals who use the range or cooktop
and downdraft vent are able to operate it properly.
2
Cut or remove
the third (ground)
prong from the
power cord.
◊
Use an adapter
plug.
◊
Use an extension
cord.
◊
Use a power cord
that is frayed or
damaged.
◊
Use of a ground fault interrupter (GFI) is not
recommended.
•
Do not tamper with the controls.
•
To Reduce The Risk of a Range Top Grease Fire:
Before performing any type of cleaning or service,
make sure that the power plug for the downdraft
vent is disconnected from the electrical outlet.
Do not leave children or pets alone or unattended in
the area around the range when it is in use. Never
allow children to sit or stand on an appliance. Do
not let children play with a range or the downdraft
vent.
◊
◊
Never leave surface units unattended at high
settings. Boil-overs cause smoking and greasy
spill-overs that may ignite. Heat oils slowly on
low or medium settings.
◊
Always turn hood ON when cooking at high heat
or when flambéing food (i.e. Crepes Suzette,
Cherries Jubilee, Peppercorn Beef Flambe’).
◊
Clean ventilating fans frequently. Grease should
not be allowed to accumulate on fan or filter.
◊
Use proper pan size. Always use cookware
appropriate for the size of the surface element.
•
DO NOT TOUCH THE SURFACES OF THE
DOWNDRAFT VENT OR RANGE DURING OR
IMMEDIATELY AFTER USE.
•
Never operate the vent without the filters in place.
Important Safety Instructions
warning
•
•
warning
Do not operate the blower if a flame or flare-up
develops. In the event of a flame, immediately
turn off the blower. Smother the flame or use an
appropriate class dry chemical or foam-type fire
extinguisher.
To prevent spillage and damage to the vent system,
before operation, turn cookware handles to the side
so that they will not be hit the vent when it moves
to the “up” position.
•
Do not set or rest any objects, including cookware,
on top of the vent top cap. Do not interfere with the
movement of the vent intake in any way.
•
Clean liquid spills immediately. If liquid enters the
vent intake, then turn off the blower, disconnect the
power supply and carefully wipe up all liquid. See
the Care and Cleaning section of this manual.
•
Do not try to remove heavy spills with a sharp
object such as a knife or metal spatula. Sharp
objects may scratch the appliance’s surfaces.
•
Do not allow acids (citrus juices, tomato sauces,
etc.) to remain on the unit’s surfaces. The finish
may stain.
•
Clean this appliance only as instructed in this
manual. Use only the cleaners specified.
•
If the vent intake becomes jammed while being
raised or lowered, immediately press the Up/
Down switch once to stop the intake motion, then
disconnect the power cord. Remove the obstruction,
reconnect the power plug and press the Up/Down
switch to continue raising or lowering the intake.
Operating Your Downdraft Vent
Operation
important
The direction of travel of the vent intake cannot be
reversed while it is moving. The intake must complete a
full up or down cycle before changing directions.
•
•
•
To operate the downdraft vent, press the switch
located on the top cap when the vent intake is in the
down position. The intake will take approximately 10
seconds to reach its uppermost position, where it will
stop.
Once in the “up” position, the blower will turn on at
the speed at which the variable speed control was set
when the intake was last lowered. The blower speed
may be adjusted by turning the variable speed control. The blower speed may be adjusted whenever the
vent intake is in the fully raised position.
Turn the blower off by pressing the Up/Down switch
again. Pressing the switch shuts off the blower and
lowers the vent intake.
•
Reduce the fan speed if the flame on a gas cooktop is
being drawn by the vent system. Drawing of the flame
is a normal occurrence with powerful vent systems,
especially when installed with short duct runs.
•
Always raise the vent intake and activate the blower
whenever using the cooktop.
•
Eliminate air currents in the vent vicinity by shutting nearby windows and doors, turning off ceiling
fans and closing adjacent heating and air conditioning
outlets.
•
Place your largest frying pans, skillets and stock pots
on the rear burners whenever possible, as the draft is
strongest closest to the vent intake.

external and internal, with a sponge or cloth moistened with a mild detergent. Rinse off the surrounding
areas with water. Remove all moisture by wiping with
a soft, dry polishing cloth.
5. Hand-wash the filters in hot water with mild detergent
solution.
