Important Safety Instructions
Read all instructions before installing and operating this appliance.
The installation instructions in this manual are intended for qualified installers, service
technicians, or persons with similar qualified background. Installation and electrical
wiring must be done by qualified professionals and in accordance with all applicable
codes and standards, including first-rated construction. DO NOT attempt to install this
appliance yourself. Injury could result from installing the unit due to lack of appropriate
electrical and technical background. Due to the size and weight of this range hood, two
people installation is recommended.
Range hood may have very sharp edges; please wear protective gloves if it is
necessary to remove any parts for installing, cleaning or servicing.
Activating any switch ON before completing installation may cause ignition or an
explosion.
To reduce the risk of fire, electric shock, or injury to persons:
For general ventilating use only. DO NOT use to exhaust hazardous or explosive
materials and vapors. The combustion air flow needed for safe operation of fuel-burning
equipment may be affected by this unit’s operation. Follow the heating equipment
manufacturer’s guideline and safety standards such as those published by the National
Fire Protection Association (NFPA), and the American Society of Heating, Refrigeration
and Air Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE), and the local code authorities. Sufficient air
is needed for proper combustion and exhausting of gases through the duct to prevent
back drafting.
Before servicing or cleaning unit, switch power OFF at service panel and lock service
panel to prevent power from being switched ON accidentally.
Metal ductwork may be required based on local codes. Complimentary ductwork in
either heat-resistant PVC or flexible metal may be included as a courtesy and can be
omitted in favor of required ductwork.
Ducted fans MUST ALWAYS be vented to the outdoors. At the point where the duct work
ends, add an external damper to prevent air from entering the home when the hood is
not in use. This also prevents small animals and rain water from entering the duct work.
When cutting or drilling into a wall or ceiling, be careful not to damage electrical wiring
or other hidden utilities.
Your safety and the safety of others is very important. We have provided many
important safety messages in this manual and on your appliance. Always read
and obey all safety messages. All safety messages will tell you what the potential
hazard is, tell you how to reduce the chance of injury, and tell you what can happen
if the instructions are not followed.

Important Safety Instructions
All electrical wiring must be properly installed, insulated, and grounded.
Old duct work should be cleaned or replaced, if necessary, to avoid the possibility of a
grease fire. Check all joints on duct work to insure proper connection, all joints should be
properly taped.
Use this unit only in the manner intended by the manufacturer. If you have any questions,
contact the vendor.
When the range hood ventilates the air out of the room, the air vented must be replaced,
this is called make-up air. If a makeup air system is needed, but not used, a hood may
not function as expected due to negative air pressure. We do not currently provide a
make-up air unit. Always consult any applicable building codes in your area in regards
to minimum and maximum air flow rates. Certain states may require additional items such
as make-up air for larger CFM range hoods (typically over 300 CFM).
Keep all fans, baffle, spaces, filter, grease tunnel, oil container and grease-laden surfaces
clean. Grease should not be allowed to accumulate on fan, baffle, spaces, filter, grease
tunnel or oil container. Clean grease-laden surfaces frequently.
To reduce the risk of fire and to disperse air properly, make sure to vent air outside. DO
NOT vent exhaust into spaces between walls, crawl spaces, ceilings, attics or garages.
Always turn the range hood ON when cooking at high heat or when cooking flaming
foods. Use high settings on the cooking range only when necessary. Never leave surface
units unattended at high settings. Boil overs cause smoking and greasy spillovers that may
ignite. Heat oils slowly on low or medium settings.
Clean ventilating fan frequently.
Always use appropriate cookware and utensils size. Always use cookware appropriate
for the size of the surface element.
To reduce the risk of injury to persons in the event of a stove top grease
fire:
Smother flames with a close fitting lid, cookie sheet or metal tray, then turn OFF the
burner. Never pick up a flaming pan—you may be burned.
Keep flammable or combustible material away from flames. If the flames do not go out
immediately, evacuate and call the fire department. DO NOT use water, including wet
dishcloths or towels—a violent steam explosion will result.
This is the safety alert symbol. This symbol alerts you to potential

Preparation
Decide the location of the venting pipe from the hood to the outside.
Check hood for clearance.
A straight, short vent run will allow the hood to perform more efficiently.
Try to avoid as many transitions, elbows, and long runs as possible. This may reduce
the performance of the hood.
For installing under the cabinet with recessed bottom, attach 4-inch wide wood filler
strips (not provided) on each side.
Puncture the knockout holes (for mounting under the cabinet) on the hood.
Step 1
Measure distance between stove
top and the bottom of the range
hood. A distance of 30” to 36” is
recommended.
Step 2
Attach mounting brackets to the
back of the hood.
Step 3
Mark the leveling point of the
hood. Position two mounting
screws on the wall, leaving ¹/₈”
space away from the wall. Make
sure that you are mounting the
hood to a secure backing to hold
the weight of the hood.

Troubleshooting and FAQ
Where are ZLINE products manufactured?
All ZLINE products are manufactured in ZLINE facilities overseas, including:
Germany, Italy, and China.
Are ZLINE range hoods considered type 1 or type 2?
Type 1 - Range hoods that are used with appliances that produce grease and smoke.
Are ZLINE products meant for residential or commercial use?
Residential use.
Why is my range hood white?
This is a protective layer that is placed on all of our range hoods to prevent shipping
damage. This should be easy removable by peeling it off.
Why are my range hood baffle filters blue?
This is a protective layer that is placed on our baffle filters to prevent shipping
damage. This should be easy removable by peeling it off.
What size hood should I choose for CFM purposes?
1. You must determine the output of the cooktop burners of your range; this is
measured in British Thermal Units (BTUs).
2. You should provide 100 CFM of airflow per linear foot of range. To determine
this, divide the BTU rating of your range by 100. This will give you the rating of the
Cubic Feet per Minute (CFM’s) rating needed of your range hood. For example: If
your range is 35,000 BTUs, your range hood should have a rating of 350 CFM’s or
greater.
3. To determine the size of the range hood for satisfactory capture, it is recommended
to go at least one size larger than your range, about 3˝ to 6˝ wider. At minimum, it
should be the same size of your range. The range hood width should cover 100% of
the back burners and 50% of the front burners.
4. The height of your range hood should be between 30˝ to 36˝ above your
cooktop. Example: 60,000 BTU’s = 600CFM’s
42
Troubleshooting and FAQ
No Power
1. Check electrical connections.
2. Check that all connections to the circuit board are secure.
3. If problem still exists, the circuit board needs to be replaced.
How loud is the range hood?
A sone is measure of loudness, the higher the sone rating, the louder the sound of the
hood. The sound of one sone is comparable to that of a quiet refrigerator. Keep in mind
that other factors such as the size of the blowers can affect the loudness of the range hood.
The higher the CFM, the louder the sone rating will be.
Can my hood be ductless?
Ideally, it is better to duct your range hood to the outside, but if this is not possible, ductless
is a great alternative. Many of our range hoods do have the capability to be converted
to ductless. Ductless is when the air circulates through the carbon filter removing odors,
grease, smoke etc. The clean air is re-circulated back into your home through carbon/
charcoal filters. These filters are not reusable and will need to be changed out once every
six months, depending on cooking style and frequency.
What type of stainless steel are our hoods made of?
Our indoor stainless steel hoods are made with a 430 stainless steel. Our outdoor hoods
are made of 304 stainless steel. This type is stronger and more resistant to rust and
corrosion.
Do I need a chimney extension or a shortening kit when I purchase
my hood?
Most hoods will come with two standard telescoping chimney pieces meant for ceilings
up from 8’ to 9’ tall. A short kit is needed for ceilings 7’ to 8’ tall. A one-piece extension is
needed for ceilings 9’ to 10’ tall. A two-piece extension is needed for ceilings 10’ to 12’
tall. Selected hoods come with one chimney piece for ceilings ranging from 9’ to 12’ tall.
Ensure you check the chimney dimensions for your hood under the product specifications
beforehand.

Troubleshooting and FAQ
How many amps are produced on the highest fan setting?
For dual motors, it is up to 3.317 amps on the highest fan setting. For single motors, it
is 1.678 amps.
What type of motor is in the range hoods?
Our hoods have a squirrel cage motor.
Is the width of my range hoods description, the actual size?
No, the actual size of the range hood will be slightly less than the generic description
of the range hood. For instance: a 30˝ range hood will most likely be 29-7/8˝. Refer
to your particular model for the exact width.
How do I clean my grease filter and how often?
Your grease filter should be washed with hot water and detergent once per month or
placed in a dishwasher for cleaning. Make certain the filter is completely dry before
reinstalling. Re-place the grease filter if it becomes damaged or too dry to clean.
Can I clean my charcoal, odor filter?
No, charcoal odor filters cannot be washed and must be discarded and replaced,
when they become noticeably dirty, have stopped filtering the odors, or at least once
per year.
What is the best way to duct my range hood?
To maximize your range hood’s performance, match your duct size to the original
size of the fan’s ducting. Use the shortest amount of ducting as possible and keep the
ducting as straight as possible. Do not exceed 40 feet of ducting. For every elbow
deduct five feet from the total.
Do I have to exhaust the range hood to the outdoors?
Yes. If installing a range hood that has ductwork connected to it (any hoods that do
NOT recirculate the air back into the room), to properly exhaust the air, be sure to
duct the air out side. DO NOT vent exhaust air back into the spaces within the walls,
ceilings, attics, crawl spaces, or garages. A buildup of humidity and grease could
44
cause damage and/or a fire risk to your home.
Troubleshooting and FAQ
My hood is operating, but the air is moving slower than normal.
Check the filter for buildup and clean or replace it if needed. If the difficulty still
persists, check for obstructions in the ductwork. A common obstruction is buildup in
the roof or wall cap, such as: bird nests or other debris.
My hood is making a rattling noise.
This is probably attributed to one of the following:
1. The motor is loose—Turn off the power and remove the filter and check that all
screws are secure and tight around the motor.
2. The duct work connection is loose—Turn off the power to the unit and check that
the ductwork connection to the pipe is tight. Add duct tape if necessary.
What is make-up air?
When the range hood ventilates the air out of the room, the air vented must be
replaced, this is called make-up air. We do not currently provide a make-up air unit.
NOTE: Always consult any applicable building codes in your area in regards to
minimum and maximum air flow rates. Certain states may require additional items
such as make-up air for larger CFM range hoods (typically over 300 CFM).
How do I order replacement parts?
Replacement parts can be ordered by contacting our customer service department at
1-614-777-5004. All hoods have a three year warranty on parts. Have your model
number or order number available when calling customer service.
My range hood will not operate.
1. Check that there is power to the range hood. The most common issue is that the
circuit breaker is off or the fuse has blown.
2. Make sure the speed has been selected at the range hood controls.
3. Turn off the power to the range hood and check that all wires are properly
connected. Refer to your specific model’s installation instructions for proper wiring.

Was the unit plugged in and was the fan checked before installation?
What distance is the hood mounted above the cook top?
Indoor (30”-36”), outdoor (36”-40”)
Is the range hood width the correct size for the cook top?
Outdoor units should be at least 1 size larger, if not 2
Does the hood have enough BTU output in relationship to either their gas or electric
stove cook top?
BTU output per burner/100 - for gas
Wattage output per burner/10 - for electric
Are the baffle filters or mesh filters installed correctly? When were they last cleaned?
Is the ducting clear?
Is the damper opening properly once the hood is turned on?
Is there air coming off the top of the hood?
Is there air coming out of the upper chimney section?
When tissue is placed on the baffle filters under the hood, does it hold the tissue?
How many elbows and how long is the ducting run?
Should be no more than 2-3 elbows and no more than a 40 foot run to exit,
for every elbow subtract 5 feet
Is the air recirculating? When were the carbon filters last changed?
The carbon filters need changed every 3-6 months based on your cooking
habits.
