VENTING REQUIREMENTS:
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
HEIGHT & CLEARANCE:
Vent system must terminate to the outside
(Roof or side wall).
DO NOT terminate the vent system in an attic
or other enclosed area.
DO NOT use 4” (10.2 cm) laundry-type wall
caps.
Use metal/aluminum vent only. Rigid metal/
aluminum vent is recommended.
DO NOT use plastic vent.
Always keep the duct clean to ensure proper
airflow.
Calculate
the
following
figures
before
installation:
1. Distance from the floor to the ceiling
2. Distance between the floor to the
countertop/stove
3. Distance between the cooking surface to
the range hood (recommend 24” to 30”)
minimum of 30” is required for gas cook top
4. Height of hood and duct cover
For the most efficient & quiet operation:
•
A distance of 24” to 30” is recommended
between stove top and the bottom of range
hood. 30” minimum is required for gas stove tops.
•
It is recommended that the range hood be
vented vertically through the roof through 6”
(15.3 cm) or bigger round metal/aluminum
vent work.
•
The size of the vent should be uniform.
•
Use no more than three 90° elbows.
•
Make sure there is a minimum of 24” (61 cm) of
straight vent between the elbows if more than one
elbow is used.
•
DO NOT install two elbows together.
•
The length of vent system and number of elbows
should be kept to a minimum to provide efficient
performance.
•
The vent system must have a damper. If roof or
wall cap has a damper, DO NOT use damper (if
supplied) on top of the range hood.
•
Use silver tape or duct tape to seal all joints in the
vent system.
•
Use caulking to seal exterior wall or roof opening
around the cap.

IMPORTANT:
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
A minimum of 6” round or 3-1/4 x 10” rectangular duct (purchased separately) must be used to
maintain maximum airflow efficiency.
Always use rigid type metal/aluminum ducts if available to maximize airflow when connecting to
provided duct.
Please use Duct Run Calculation below to compute total available duct run when using elbows,
transitions and caps.
ALWAYS, when possible, reduce the number or transitions and turns. If long duct run is required,
increase duct size from 6” to 7” or 8”. If a reducer is used, install a long reducer instead of a pancake
reducer. Reducing duct size will restrict airflow and decrease airflow, thus reduce duct size as far
away from opening as possible.
If turns or transitions are required, install as far away from opening and as far apart, between two
(2), as possible.
Minimum mount height between stove top to hood bottom should be no less than 24-inch for
electric cook tops and minimum of 30-inch for gas stove tops and no higher than 30-inch for electric
cook tops.
It is important to install the hood at the proper mounting height. Hoods mounted too low could result
in heat damage and fire hazard; while hoods mounted too high may be hard to reach and will lose its
performance and efficiency.
If available, also refer to stove top manufacturer’s height clearance requirements and recommended
hood mounting height above range.
CALCULATING VENT SYSTEM LENGTH:
To calculate the length of the system you need, deduct the equivalent feet for each vent piece used in the
system from the recommended maximum duct run.
Duct Run Calculation example:
One roof cap, two 90º elbows, and one 45º
elbow use
0ft + 9ft + 9ft + 5ft = 23ft used.
Deduct 23ft from 30ft, 7ft maximum
available for straight duct run.

VENTING METHODS:
•
This range hood is factory set for venting through the roof or wall.
•
Vent work can terminate either through the roof or wall. To vent through a wall, a 90° elbow is needed.
IMPORTANT:
•
NEVER exhaust air or terminate duct work into spaces between walls, crawl spaces, ceiling,
attics or garages. All exhaust must be ducted to the outside.
•
WARNING - TO REDUCE RISK OF FIRE, USE METAL/ALUMINUM DUCT WORK ONLY
•
Fasten all connections with sheet metal screws and tape all joints with certified aluminum or foil tape.
Please check the building codes in your city to learn which tape product is recommended
•
Use caulking to seal exterior wall or roof opening around the cap.

TROUBLE SHOOTING:
1) If the range hood or halogen light does not
operate after installation:
•
Check if the range hood has been plugged in,
make sure that all power has been turned back
ON,fused not blown and all electrical wiring
are properly connected.
2) The range hood vibrates when the blower is on:
•
The range hood might not have been secured
properly on to the ceiling or wall.
3) The blower or fan seems weak:
•
Check that the duct sized used is at least 6” or
3-1/4 x 10”. Range hood WILL NOT function
efficiently with insufficient duct size. For
example: 7” duct over 6” hole and loosely
secured.
•
Check if duct is clogged or if damper unit
(half-circular flange) is not installed correctly
or opening properly. A tight mesh on a side
wall cap unit might also cause restriction to the
air flow.
•
The fan might be jammed or scraping the
bottom due to shipping damage. Please
contact us immediately.
•
Make sure the distance between the stove top
and the bottom of the hood is within 24” and
30” in distance; with minimum 30” for gas
stove top.
•
Reduce the number of elbows and length of
duct work. Check if all joints are properly
connected, sealed, and taped.
4) The lights work but the fan is not spinning at
all, is stuck or is rattling:
5) The hood is not venting out properly:

USE AND CARE INFORMATION:
Operations:
•
Read and understand all instructions and warnings in this manual before operating the appliance. Save these
instructions for future reference.
•
Always leave safety grills and filters in place. Without these components, operating fans could catch on to
hair, fingers and loose clothing.
•
NEVER dispose cigarette ashes, ignitable substances, or any foreign objects into fans.
•
NEVER leave cooking unattended. When frying, oil in the pan can easily overheat and catch fire. The risk of
self combustion is higher when the oil has been used several times.
•
NEVER cook on “open” flames under the range hood. Check deep-fryers during use; superheated oil may be
flammable.
Cleaning:
•
The saturation of greasy residue in the fan and filters may cause increased inflammability. Keep unit clean
and free of grease and residue build-up at all times to prevent possible fires.
•
Filters must be cleaned periodically and free from accumulation of cooking residue (see Cleaning
Instructions below). Old and worn filters must be replaced immediately.
•
DO NOT operate fans when filters are removed. Never disassemble parts to clean without proper
instructions. Disassembly is recommended to be performed by qualified personnel only. Read and
understand all instructions and warnings in this manual before proceeding.
SAFETY WARNING: Never put your hand into area housing the fan while the fan is operating!
For optimal operation, clean range hood and all baffle/spacer/filter/grease tray/oil container regularly. Regular care
will help preserve the appearance of the range hood.
Cleaning Exterior Surfaces:
•
Clean periodically with hot soapy water and clean cotton cloth. DO NOT use corrosive or abrasive detergent
(e.g. Comet Power Scrub®, EZ-Off® oven cleaner), or steel wool/scoring pads, which will scratch and damage
the stainless steel surface. For heavier soil use liquid degrease such as “Formula 409®” or “Fantastic®” brand
cleaner.
•
If hood looks splotchy (stainless steel hood), use a stainless steel cleaner to clean the surface of the hood. Avoid
getting cleaning solution onto or into the control panel. Follow directions of the stainless steel cleaner.
CAUTION: DO NOT leave on too long as this may cause damage to hood finish. Use soft towel to wipe
off the cleaning solution, gently rub off any stubborn spots. Use dry soft towel to dry the hood.
•
After cleaning, you may use non abrasive stainless steel polish such as 3M® or ZEP®, to polish and buff out
the stainless luster and grain. Always scrub lightly, with clean cotton cloth, and with the grain.
•
DO NOT allow deposits to accumulate or remain on the hood.
•
DO NOT use ordinary steel wool or steel brushes. Small bits of steel may adhere to the surface and cause
rusting.
•
DO NOT allow salt solutions, disinfectants, bleaches, or cleaning compounds to remain in contact with
stainless steel for extended periods. Many of these compounds contain chemicals, which may be harmful.
Rinse with water after exposure to these compounds and wipe dry with a clean cloth.
Cleaning Filters:
IMPORTANT: Drain oil from baffles, spacers, filters, oil tunnels, oil containers before oil and residue overflow!
•
Remove all baffles, spacers, filters, grease tray, and oil containers and discard oil and residue.
•
Wash with warm soapy water. NOTE: Stainless steel baffles, spacers and oil tunnel are top rack dishwasher
safe.
•
Dry thoroughly before replacing and follow directions for installation in reverse.
•
Filters should be cleaned after every 30 hours of use.
•
Should filters wear out due to age and prolonged use, replace with a new filter.
