Important Safety Instructions
WARNING - TO REDUCE THE RISK OF FIRE, ELECTRIC SHOCK, OR
INJURY TO PERSONS, OBSERVE THE FOLLOWING:
1. Use this unit only in the manner intended by the manufacturer. If you have
any questions, contact the manufacturer.
2. 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 A RANGETOP GREASE FIRE:
1. Never leave surface units unattended at high settings. 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.
3. Clean ventilating fans frequently. Grease should not be allowed to
accumulate on fan or filters.
4. Use proper pan size. Always use cookware appropriate for the size of the
cooking area.

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 you have 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.
IMPORTANT SERVICE INSTRUCTIONS
-CAUTIONFOR GENERAL VENTILATING USE ONLY. DO NOT USE TO EXHAUST
HAZARDOUS OR EXPLOSIVE MATERIALS AND VAPORS
Before Using Your 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 upon the finish of your hood.
This will leave a protective finish on the hood.

Operation of Your Hood
Always turn your hood on before you begin cooking to establish an air flow
in the kitchen. Let the blower run for a few minutes to clear the air after you
turn your cooking appliance off. This will help keep the air in the kitchen
cleaner.
Each hood has one blower motor which is operated using two (2) controls.
Use the on/off control switch to start and stop the blower. When turned on,
the blower will operate at the previous setting of the speed control. Turn the
speed control knob counterclockwise to decrease the blower speed and
clockwise to increase the speed. The type of cooking you are doing will
dictate the speed of the blower you will want to use.
3
Located to the left of the fan switches is the halogen light switch. This
controls the 50 watt halogen lights located in the front of the hood. The
halogen lights also have a switch which can be rotated in order to dim or
brighten the lights. Turn the dimmer control knob clockwise to brighten the
lights and counterclockwise to dim.
Each 18” H. indoor hood will be equipped with one or two heat lamp
outlets. The switches to operate the heat lamps will be located on the right
end of the control panel. The 250 watt infrared bulbs are not included and
should be purchased locally. CAUTION: Do not place flammable material
on warming shelves when using heat lamps.
Heat Sensor Thermostat
Your hood is equipped with a heat sensor thermostat. The thermostat will
turn on or speed up the blower if it senses excessive heat above the cooking
surface. If the blower is OFF - it turns the blower ON to HIGH speed. If the
blower is ON at a lower speed setting - it turns the blower up to HIGH
speed. When the temperature level drops to normal, the blower will return
to its original setting. CAUTION: If the power to the hood is not
disconnected during cleaning, the heat sensor thermostat can cause the
blower to turn ON.
Using the Grill with Outdoor Approved Hoods
•Outdoor approved hood models should be installed in a covered nonenclosed area. They should also be protected from natural elements (such as
rain) as much as possible.
•Always turn the outdoor hood on to the HI position before lighting the grill.
•Keep the grill canopy closed as much as possible when cooking so smoke is
exhausted out the back of the grill. This allows for optimum performance of
the hood.
•During breezy conditions, the performance of the outdoor hood may be
compromised.
CAUTION
UNPLUG POWER CORDS FROM CONTROL PANEL
BEFORE CLEANING OR SERVICING HOOD.
Cleaning and Maintenance
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 the 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 usually dirty mesh filters. The capture of grease is also superior as baffle
filters are almost universally required in commercial installations. 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 insure maximum filter effectiveness.
•Do not use caustic detergent to clean the filters. A caustic 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.
When cleaning filters in 18” H. hoods, always remove the grease trough and
clean by placing in sink with hot soapy water.

Charcoal Filter Maintenance (Recirculating Hoods Only)
Replace the charcoal filters every 6 months to 1 year depending on the
amount and type of cooking.
To replace, remove the baffle/charcoal
filter assembly and slide the charcoal
filter out of the channel and replace
with new one. Do not put the
charcoal filters in the dishwasher or
oven.
Replacement filters are available
through your local Viking Range
dealer or you can call the Viking
Online Store at 1-877-834-8222.
Replacement filters can also be ordered online at www.vikingrange.com
Cleaning the 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 you keep your
hood looking new. 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 cleaners that contain chlorides, the
chlorides in the cleaner could damage the stainless steel finish.
If necessary to scrape stainless steel to remove encrusted materials, 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. Every three 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.
6
Renewing the Enamel Finish
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. CAUTION: Do not use a porcelain cleaner or rough
abrasive cleaner.
Renewing the 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.
Brass Parts
Caution: All brass special ordered parts are coated with an epoxy coating.
Do not use brass cleaners or abrasive cleansers on the brass option parts. All
brass body parts should be wiped regularly with hot soapy water. When hot
soapy water will not do the job, use every day household cleaners that are
not abrasive.
Cleaning Ductless Venting Chamber
1. Remove the middle vent by gently raising up and pulling out.
2. Use the same cleaning directions as stated in “Cleaning the Hood
Canopy”.
3. After cleaning, replace the middle vent.
Replacing Light Bulbs
Halogen Lights
Use an oven mitt during bulb removal to protect your hand in case the bulb
breaks.
1) Unscrew halogen bulb.
2) Replace the bulb with a 120 volt, 50-watt halogen bulb.
Infrared Heat Lamp
Use an oven mitt during bulb removal to protect your hand in case the bulb
breaks.
1) Unscrew infrared bulb from heat lamp socket.
2) Replace the bulb with an R40, 120 volt, 250-watt infrared bulb.
