READ AND SAVE THESE INSTRUCTIONS
OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS
Always turn your hood on before you begin cooking to establish an air flow in the kitchen. Let the hood run for a
few minutes to clean the air after you turn the range off. This will keep the whole kitchen cleaner.
Controls
The hood is “OFF” when the glass visor is pushed
completely in.
LIGHT–The light will turn “ON” when the glass visor
is pulled out approximately 1/2 inch.
2
BLOWER–The blower will turn “ON” when the
drawer is pulled out approximately 11ø2 inches.
The blower speed is set using the slide control,
located to the right of the drawer.
Automatic Heat Sensor

thermostat. This thermostat is a device that will turn
on or speed up the blower if it senses excessive heat
above the cooking surface.
If your blower is not on, or if it is running at low speed,
the thermostat will sense excessive cooking heat,
override the normal blower control and turn the
blower on to high speed. The blower will run until the
temperature drops to normal operating level. The
blower will then automatically return to its original
setting.
CARE AND CLEANING
WARNING: ALWAYS DISCONNECT ELECTRIC POWER SUPPLY BEFORE SERVICING HOOD.
Use a mild detergent suitable for painted surfaces.
DO NOT USE ABRASIVE CLOTH, STEEL WOOL PADS
OR SCOURING POWDERS. Vacuum the blower to
clean it. Do not immerse the blower in water.

Light Bulb Replacement
Stainless Steel (on some models)
This hood uses an F20T12 fluorescent tube and an
FS-2 starter, which are available at most hardware
stores or home centers.
If the tube flickers or does not light, check the
prongs on the ends of the tube to make sure they
are properly seated in the tube holders.
If the tube continues to flicker or does not light,
replace the tube. Slide the tube into the holders and
rotate the tube so that the prongs in the holders
grip the tube and hold it in place.
If the ends of the tube light but the center does not,
the starter may require replacement. The starter
is located behind the filter panel on the right hand
side. Install the new starter by pushing the starter in
and turning it clockwise.
Do not use a steel wool pad; it will scratch the
surface.
To clean the stainless steel surface, use warm
sudsy water or a stainless steel cleaner or polish.
Always wipe the surface in the direction of the
grain. Follow the cleaner instructions for cleaning
the stainless steel surface.
To inquire about purchasing stainless steel
appliance cleaner or polish, or to find the location
of a dealer nearest you, please call our toll-free

<RXUQHZKRRGZLOOILWDVWDQGDUGswide flush bottom or
recessed bottom, framed or frameless kitchen cabinet which
has a minimum depth of 11s from the face to the inside of
the back wall.
The unit is ducted vertically. To change to horizontal ducting
see the instructions.
For safe operation, the mounted hood must be a minimum of
24s above the cooking surface.
For easiest installation, the range hood should be installed in
the cabinet before mounting the cabinet to the wall.
NOTE: Remove the glass visor from the unit before installing the
hood in the cabinet to protect the visor from damage.
NOTE: Any home ventilation system, such as a ventilation
hood, may interrupt the proper flow of combustion air and
exhaust required by fireplaces, gas furnaces, gas water
heaters and other naturally vented systems. To minimize the
chance of interruption of such naturally vented systems, follow
the heating equipment manufacturer’s guidelines and safety
standards such as those published by NFPA and ASHRAE.
When applicable, install any makeup (replacement) air
system in accordance with local building code requirements.
