3. The hood is fitted with Screws and Drywall
Anchors suitable for most surfaces, consult a
Qualified Installer, check if they perfectly fit with
your cabinet/wall.
4. Do not use flex ducting.
5. COLD WEATHER installations should have an
additional backdraft damper that is already
installed to minimize backward cold air flow and a
nonmetallic thermal break to minimize
conduction of outside temperatures as part
of the ductwork. The damper should be
on the cold air side of the thermal break.
The break should be as close as possible
to where the ducting enters the heated portion
of the house.
6. Make up air: Local building codes may require the
use of Make-Up Air Systems when using Ducted
Ventilation Systems greater than specified CFM of
air movement.
The specified CFM varies from locale to locale.

Advance planning
• Determine the exact location of the vent hood.
• Plan the route for venting exhaust to the
outdoors.
• Use the shortest and straightest duct route
possible.
Refer to “ Ductwork installation guidelines”
paragraph for further informations.
• Install a wall cap with damper or roof cap at the
exterior opening. Order the wall or roof cap and
anytransition needed in advance.
• Use 8” round metal ductwork only.
•
Make up air: Local building codes may require
the use of Make-Up Air Systems when using
Ducted Ventilation Systems greater than specified
CFM of air movement.
The specified CFM varies from locale to locale.
Consult your HVAC professional for specific
requirements in your area.
Wall framing for adequate support
• This vent hood is heavy.
Adequate structure and support must be
provided in all types of installations. The hood
must be secure to vertical studs in the wall, or to
a horizontal support.
• The vent hood should be on site before $nal
framing and wall $nishing. This will help to
accurately locate the duct work and electrical
service.
• Installation will be easier if the vent hood is
installed before the cook-top and countertop are
installed.
•
5ZQJDBMJOTUBMMBUJPO Min installation height from the range top to the
bottom of the hood is 30” if a gas range is used
or 24” to 30” if an electric range is used.

Ductwork installation guidelines
Ductwork and wiring locations
For safety reasons, ducting should vent directly
outdoors (not into an attic, underneath the house,
into the garage or into any enclosed space).
Keep duct runs as short and straight as possible.
Duct fittings (elbows and transitions) reduce air flow
efficiency.
Back to back elbows and “S“ turns give very poor
delivery and are not recommended.
A short straight length of duct at the inlet of the
remote blower gives the best delivery.
Transition to duct from the integral blower or remote
duct transition as close to the downdraft as is possible.
In order of preference, use
1st. 10” round duct
2nd. 8” round duct
3rd. 3-1/4” x 14” duct
4th. 7” round duct
5th. 3-1/4” x l0” duct
6th. 6” round duct
•
•
•
•
Determine the exact location of the vent hood.
Locate the template packed with the literature.
The height installation is determined by the
following image. Mark the location.
Installation height: 30” gas cooktop/range or 24”
to 30” electric cooktop/range.
Sidewalk cap w/
gravity damper
Installation height
The use of flexible metal round duct should only be
used when no other duct fitting exists. Limit use to
short lengths and do not crush when making
corners
•
•
Use a level to draw a horizontal straight pencil line
on the wall, which is your desired
installation height.
Find the centerline of the cooktop. Use a level to
draw a vertical straight pencil line on the wall.
CHECK TO BE SURE THE LINE IS PERFECTLY
PERPERNDICULAR.
Installing the hood
Mounting the duct cover bracket
Ceiling ducting
The duct bracket should be installed against the
back wall and flush with the ceiling. This bracket will
hold the telescopic duct cover in place at the top
If the duct will vent straight up to the ceiling:
• Use level to draw a line straight up, from the
centerline on the template to the ceiling.
• Measure at least 4 -3/4 ” from the back wall to
the circle center of an 8-½” hole on the ceiling.
Secure the bracket to the wall:
•

Install wall fastener anchors.
Drive wood screws, by hand, into the fastener to
allow anchors to expand. Remove the screws.
Secure the bracket to the wall with wood screws
and/or fasteners.
Wall ducting
If ductwork will vent to rear:
• Use a level to draw a line straight up from the
centerline on the template.
• Measure at least 23 - 3/4” (the measure might
vary depending on the elbow used) above the
pencil line that indicates the bottom installation
height, to the circle center of an 8-½” diameter
duct hole (Hole may be elongated for duct elbow).
House wiring location
• The junction box is located on the top left side of
the hood.
• Wiring should enter the back wall at least 20”
above the bottom of the installation height, and
within 5-7/8” and 4-7/8”of the left side of the
centerline.
