4. Attach mounting plate to top of hood.
5. Install 10” dia. ductwork and 120 VAC
house wiring between blower location
and hood location.

1. Locate the blower so the length of the
duct run and number of elbows are kept
to a minimum.
2. Where possible, blower should be centered between wall studs or roof rafters.

WALL INSTALLATIONS
1. Locate the blower on the rear slope of the
roof. Place it in a location to minimize
duct run. The location should be free of
obstacles (T.V. leads, electrical lines,
etc.). Bear in mind, if the blower top is
level with the roof peak, it will not be seen
from the street. Keep this approximate
location in mind as you work from within
the attic.
1. Choose a position on the outside wall.
Make sure that no wall studs, pipes or
wires run through the opening area.

1. Remove roofing nails from the upper 2/3
of the shingles around the cutout area
and carefully lift the shingles to allow the
back flashing sheet on the blower housing to fit under them.
2. Center the blower ring in the 11" diameter hole, making sure that the 1-1/4"
diameter electrical wiring hole aligns with
the hole in the wiring box.
3. Attach the blower to the roof with the six
screws provided. All six holes in the back
panel must be filled, or any moisture that
may get inside the housing could leak
into the house.
4. Using a good grade of roofing cement,
seal all of the shingles around the housing and flashing sheet as well as the
mounting screw heads.
5. Bring electrical wiring (from hood) through
the hole in the wiring box and secure it
according to local codes.
1. Place a large bead of caulk on the back
side of the housing along the outer edge.
2. Center the blower ring in the 11" diameter hole, making sure that the 1-1/4"
diameter electrical wiring hole aligns with
the hole in the wiring box.
3. Attach blower to the wall with the six
screws provided. All six holes in the back
panel must be filled, or any moisture that
may get inside the housing could leak
into the house.
4. Using a good grade of caulk, seal all
around the mounting screw heads.
5. Bring electrical wiring through the hole in
the wiring box and secure it according to
local codes.
6. Make the electrical connections with the
proper connector for the type of wire
being used. Connect white to white, black
