Gas cooking appliances release carbon monoxide that can be harmful or fatal if inhaled. To reduce the risk of fire and to properly exhaust air, the exhaust gases extracted by the hood should be vented outside of the building only. Do not vent exhaust air into spaces within walls or ceilings or in attics, crawl spaces or garages. To reduce the risk of fire, only use metal ductwork. Please read and follow the "IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS" to reduce the risk of personal injury. Follow all local building codes when installing the hood. Exhaust ducting and connections Use smooth or flexible pipework made from approved non-flammable materials for exhaust ducting. To achieve the most efficient air extraction and quietest noise levels, consider the following: – The diameter of the ductwork should not be less than 6" (150 mm). – If flat ducting is used, the cross section must not be smaller than the cross section of the ventilation exhaust. – The ducting should be as short and straight as possible. – Use ductwork with a wide radius. – The exhaust duct must not be bent or compressed. – Make sure all connections are secure. – Where the ductwork is horizontal, it must slope away from the hood at least 1/8" per foot (1 cm per meter) to prevent condensation dripping into the appliance. – If the exhaust is ducted through an outside wall, a Telescopic Wall Vent can be used. 32 Air extraction Condensate trap optional accessory In some cases, a condensate trap may also be required to collect and evaporate any condensate which may occur. This optional accessory is available for ducts 5" (125 mm) and 6" (150 mm) in diameter. – If the exhaust is ducted into an inactive flue, the air must be expelled parallel to the flow direction of the flue. Never connect an exhaust hood to an active chimney, dryer vent, flue, or room venting ductwork. Seek professional advice before connecting an exhaust hood vent to an existing, inactive chimney or vent flue. When installing a condensate trap, ensure that it is positioned vertically and if possible directly above the exhaust outlet. Important If the ductwork runs through rooms, ceilings, garages, etc. where temperature variations exist, it may need to be insulated to reduce condensation. 33 Electrical connection ,WARNING TO REDUCE THE RISK OF FIRE, ELECTRIC SHOCK, OR INJURY TO PERSONS, OBSERVE THE FOLLOWING: All electrical work should be performed by a qualified electrician in strict accordance with national regulations (for USA: ANSI-NFPA 70) and local safety regulations. Installation, repairs and other work by unqualified persons could be dangerous. Ensure that power to the appliance is off while installation or repair work is performed. ^ Verify that the voltage, load and circuit rating information found on the data plate (located behind the grease filters), match the household electrical supply before installing the hood. ^ Use only with ventilation hood cord-connection kits that have been investigated and found acceptable for use with this model hood.
