Important Safety Instructions
General Safety Precautions
To reduce the risk of fire, electric shock, serious injury or death when using your appliance, follow basic safety precautions, including the following:
warning
•
If you receive a damaged product, immediately
contact your dealer or builder. Do not install or
operate this unit if it has been damaged, dropped,
has damaged electrical wiring or is not working
properly.
•
Use this downdraft vent only as outlined in this
manual. Do not use this unit to vent hazardous
or explosive materials or vapors. This unit is not
intended for commercial use.
•
This downdraft vent must be installed by a qualified
installer according to the accompanying installation
instructions. All installation work must be performed
in accordance with all applicable codes and
standards, including fire-rated construction.
•
warning
Do not install, repair or replace any part of this unit
unless specifically recommended in the literature
accompanying it. A qualified service technician
should perform all other service. Contact the Dacor
Customer Service Team for examination, repair or
adjustment.
•
Before operating the downdraft vent, verify that pot
handles or other objects will not interfere with the
raising and lowering of the vent intake. To prevent
spillage and damage to the vent system, turn
cookware handles to the side so that they will not
be hit when the vent moves to the “up” position.
•
Clean liquid spills immediately. If liquid enters the
vent intake, then turn off the blower, disconnect the
power supply and carefully wipe up all liquid. See
the Care and Cleaning section of this manual.
•
Never operate the vent without the filters in place.
•
Do not operate the blower if a flame or flare-up
develops. In the event of a flame, immediately
turn off the blower. Smother the flame or use an
appropriate class dry chemical or foam-type fire
extinguisher.
•
Do not set or rest any objects, including cookware,
on top of the vent top cap. Do not interfere with the
movement of the vent intake in any way.
•
If the vent intake becomes jammed while being
raised or lowered, immediately press the Up/
Down switch once to stop the intake motion,
then disconnect the power supply. Remove the
obstruction, then restore power and press the Up/
Down switch to continue raising or lowering the
intake.
•
Do not leave children or pets alone or unattended in
the area around the range when it is in use. Never
allow children to sit or stand on an appliance. Do
not let children play with a range or the downdraft.
•
Do not store items of interest to children above or
around the range.
•
Make sure individuals who use the range or cooktop
and downdraft vent are able to operate it properly.
TO REDUCE THE RISK OF INJURY TO PERSONS IN
THE EVENT OF A RANGE TOP GREASE FIRE:
•
Never leave a cooktop unattended during use.
•
•
Do not tamper with the controls.
•
Clean the filters and all grease-laden surfaces often
according to the cleaning instructions in this manual
to prevent grease fires and maintain performance.
SMOTHER FLAMES with a close-fitting 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.
•
DO NOT TOUCH THE SURFACES OF THE
DOWNDRAFT VENT OR RANGE DURING OR
IMMEDIATELY AFTER USE.
•
NEVER PICK UP A FLAMING PAN - you may be
burned.
•
DO NOT USE WATER, including wet dish clothes or
towels - a violent steam explosion may result.
•
Use a fire extinguisher ONLY if:
•
Do not allow acids (citrus juices, tomato sauces,
etc.) to remain on the unit’s surfaces. The finish
may stain.
•
Do not try to remove heavy spills with a sharp
object such as a knife or metal spatula. Sharp
objects may scratch the appliance’s surfaces.
•
Clean this appliance only as instructed in this
manual. Use only the cleaners specified.
◊ 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.

Operating Your Downdraft Vent
Operating Tips:
Operation
• Activate the blower a few minutes before starting to
cook to establish an airflow pattern in the room.
warning
• Adjust the fan speed according to the volume and
weight of the cooking exhaust.
If the vent intake becomes jammed while being raised
or lowered, immediately press the UP/DOWN key once
to stop the intake motion, then turn off power at the
circuit breaker or fuse box. Remove the obstruction,
turn on the power and press the UP/DOWN key to
continue raising or lowering the intake.
• Reduce the fan speed if the flame on a gas cooktop is
being drawn by the vent system. Flame drawing is a
normal occurrence with powerful vent systems, especially when installed with short duct runs.
• Always raise the vent intake and activate the blower
whenever using the cooktop or range.
important
• Eliminate air currents in the vent vicinity by shutting nearby windows and doors, turning off ceiling
fans and closing adjacent heating and air conditioning
outlets.
The direction of travel of the vent intake cannot be
reversed while it is moving. The intake must complete a
full up or down cycle before changing directions.
• Place your largest frying pans, skillets and stock pots
on the rear burners whenever possible, as the draft is
strongest closest to the vent intake.
To operate the RV downdraft vent system when the vent
intake is in its lowered position, press and release the
UP/DOWN key on the control panel. The intake will take
approximately ten seconds to reach its uppermost position, where it will stop.
Using Delay Off
When the cooking process is complete, use the Delay Off
feature to remove any residual smoke and fumes. Turn
the Delay Off function by pressing the DELAY OFF key
while the downdraft vent is on. The blower will continue to
run at the selected fan speed for five minutes, then automatically turn off. The vent intake will remain in the fully
raised position after the blower shuts off. The intake may
be lowered by pressing and releasing the UP/DOWN key
at your convenience.
The blower will turn on automatically and run on the
high speed setting. Adjust the blower speed by pressing
and releasing either the MEDIUM or LOW keys. The fan
speed may be changed whenever desired, as long as the
vent intake is in the fully raised position. The blower will
not operate if the intake is in any other position.
Turn off the blower in one of two ways: Press and release
the OFF key or lower the vent by pressing and releasing
the UP/DOWN key.
CLEAN
FILTER
OFF
DELAY
OFF
MEDIUM
LOW
HIGH
While the blower is operating in Delay Off mode, the
blower speed may be adjusted to a different speed by
pressing the HIGH, MEDIUM or LOW keys.
UP /
DOWN
To manually cancel the Delay Off function, press and
release the OFF key or the UP/DOWN key. The blower
will shut off and if pressing the UP/DOWN key, the vent
will retract.
Securing the Electronic Keypad
Control panel
Top cap
To prevent accidental raising or lowering of the vent,
secure the electronic keypad so that the keys (buttons) do
not function. This feature is especially helpful when young
children are present or when cleaning the vent and surrounding areas.
Intake

• While the vent is in the fully lowered or fully raised
position, press and the HIGH and LOW keys at the
same time for one second. The electronic controls
will secure and the keys will become inoperative. The
HIGH and LOW key indicator lights will illuminate at
the same time when the controls are secured.
• To reactivate the controls, press the HIGH and LOW
keys at the same time for one second. The HIGH and

Care and Cleaning
warning
•
Clean the vent only in the manner specified.
•
To avoid dangerous fumes or damage to your vent’s surfaces, use only the types of cleaning solutions specified in
this manual.
•
To avoid personal injury, turn off the range and vent and make sure all surrounding surfaces are cool before
cleaning.
•
Always wipe stainless steel (silver colored) surfaces with the grain. To prevent scratching, do not use abrasive
cleaners or scrubbers on stainless steel surfaces.
•
To avoid damage to the fan, do not reinstall damaged filters.
•
To avoid damage, do not clean the filters in a dishwasher.
Grill Cleaning
Cleaning the Filters
• Secure the keypad (see facing page).
Clean the filters and surrounding areas regularly to prevent grease build-up.
• Remove the grill with the vent in the raised position.
Gently grasp the grill on both ends. Lift it up, then
rotate the bottom of the grill out of the lower groove.
Clean it regularly. Hand wash it in hot water with a
mild detergent solution. Set the grill on a flat surface
and wipe only in the direction of the grill grain.
The CLEAN FILTER key indicator light will
illuminate after 40 hours of blower use to
remind you to clean the filters (push the
CLEAN FILTER key to reset). The filters
may need to be cleaned more often based
upon the type and amount of cooking.
Check the filters regularly.
• Do not use any cleaners containing ammonia as this
will damage the anodized aluminum finish. A soft
toothbrush or nylon bristle dish brush may be used to
clean the grill grooves.

Care and Cleaning
Cleaning the Intake Panel
Cleaning the Top Cap
The intake panels accumulate grease over time and
should be cleaned whenever the filters are washed.
Clean the top cap only when the intake vent is in the lowered position.
• After removing the grill and filters, wipe all external
and internal aluminum surfaces with a sponge or cloth
moistened with a mild detergent. Rinse off with water.
Remove all moisture by wiping with a soft, dry polishing cloth. Always wipe in the direction of the grain. Do
not use any abrasive substances on the intake panels,
as this may permanently mar the finish.
The top cap and end caps may have painted finishes
(depending on the model) that will scratch or stain if
cleaned with abrasive materials or harsh chemicals.
• Gently wipe them with a sponge or soft cloth moistened in a mild detergent solution whenever they
becomes soiled. Avoid introduction of moisture into
the electronic keypad area.
• Dry and reinstall all components prior to operating the
vent system.
Cleaning the Electronic Keypad
Do not use any abrasive materials to clean the keypad.
• The keypad and surrounding the plastic bezel should
be gently wiped with a lightly dampened sponge or
cloth. Any material that becomes lodged between the
buttons and the surrounding bezel may be removed
by carefully dabbing with a cotton swab or the edge of
a cloth. Use the above method to prevent the buttons
from sticking.
• After cleaning, immediately dry the keypad area with
a soft cloth.
