GENERAL SAFETY INFORMATION

When using electrical appliances, basic precautions should always be followed to reduce the risk of fire, electric shock and injury to person, including the following:

WARNING: DO NOT CONNECT POWER SUPPLY UNTIL FAN IS COMPLETELY INSTALLED. MAKE SURE ELECTRICAL SERVICE TO THE FAN IS LOCKED IN OFF POSITION.

1.Read all instructions before installing or using exhaust fan.

2.Use this unit only in the manner intended by the manufacturer. If you have questions, contact the manufacturer.

3.Before servicing or cleaning the unit, switch power off at service panel and lock the service disconnecting means to prevent power from being switched on accidentally. When the service disconnecting means cannot be locked, securely fasten a prominent warning device, such as a tag, to the service panel.

4.Installation work and electrical wiring must be done by qualified person(s) in accordance with all applicable codes and standards, including fire-relatedconstruction.

5.Sufficient air is needed for proper combustion and exhausting of gases through the flue (chimney) of fuel burning equipment to prevent back drafting. 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 for Heating, Refrigeration, and Air Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE), and the local code authorities.

CAUTION: FOR GENERAL VENTILATING USE ONLY. DO NOT USE TO EXHAUST HAZARDOUS OR EXPLOSIVE MATERIALS AND VAPORS.

6.When cutting or drilling into wall or ceiling, do not damage electrical wiring and other hidden utilities.

7.Ducted fans must always be vented to the outdoors.

INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS

CAUTION: MAKE SURE POWER IS SWITCHED OFF AT SERVICE PANEL BEFORE STARTING INSTALLATION.

SECTION 1

Preparing for Fan Installation

1.When selecting fan mounting location, the following criteria should be considered:

a)Mounting to minimize noise generated by fan operation:

Mounting the fan as far as possible from the intake point will minimize fan operating noise from being transmitted back through the duct work. If the fan is to be used as a booster for moving the air between two rooms, a central point along the duct may be optimal. Insulated flexible type duct work (recommended for all bathroom exhaust applications) will result in much quieter operation. It is recommended that a minimum 8' of insulated flexible ducting be used between any exhaust grill and fan for low noise level.

b)Service accessibility: Fan location should allow sufficient access for service.

SECTION 2

Installing the Fan

1.Using the 1" wood screws provided, attach the fan mounting bracket to a support beam at the selected location (Figure 1).

NOTE: Fan mounting can be at any point along the duct and in any angle, however, vertical mounting is recommended to reduce condensation buildup in the fan. If a horizontal installation is necessary and condensation buildup may pose a problem, wrap insulation around the fan to minimize buildup.

2.Attach fan to the mounting bracket with the three 7/16" sheet metal screws provided, making sure the wiring box is positioned for easy access (Figure 2).

NOTE: Bracket is provided with rubber vibration isolation grommets to prevent the transmission of sound through the structure. Be careful not to over tighten. Also, care should be taken not to strip the plastic housing. Screws are self tapping and do not require pilot holes. Pilot holes no larger than 1/16" can be used to ease the installation however.

SECTION 3

Preparing for Ceiling Housing Installation

1.Choose a location for the inlet grill that will not interfere with a ceiling joist. The grill housing can be mounted directly to the joist through the keyholes on the side of the housing or between 16" on center joists using the provided mounting rails.

2.Remove the electrical knockout cover or one of the other electrical knockouts on the grill housing, using a straightblade screw driver (Figure 3).

Optional Knockouts

SECTION 4

New Construction

1.Mounting Rail Installation: Install the rails through the grill housing and position next to the joist. Using the locator tabs on the housing, line up tabs so that they are flush with the bottom of the joist. Secure the ends of the rails with the provided 1" screws to the joists and slide the housing into the final position(Figure 4).

INSTRUCTIONS D’INSTALLATION

AVERTISSEMENT:VOUS ASSURER QUE L’ALIMENTATION EST COUPÉE AU PANNEAU DE SERVICE AVANT DE COMMENCER L’INSTALLATION.

SECTION 1

Préparation en prévision de l’installation du ventilateur

1.Lorsque vous choisissez l’emplacement pour l’installation du ventilateur, les critères suivants doivent être pris en compte :

a)Installation visant à réduire le bruit généré par le fonctionnement du ventilateur : L’installation du ventilateur aussi loin que possible du point d’entrée empêchera, en partie, le bruit de son fonctionnement d’être retransmis par le truchement du système de conduits. S’il est utilisé comme ventilateur de renfort pour assurer la distribution d’air entre deux pièces, un point central au long du système de conduit pourrait s’avérer optimal. Un système de conduit flexible isolé (recommandé pour toutes les installations de ventilateurs dans les salles de bain) procurera un fonctionnement beaucoup plus silencieux. Il est recommandé d’utiliser au moins 2,44 m de gaine flexible entre toute grille d’échappement et le ventilateur pour minimiser le niveau de bruit.

b)Accessibilité pour l’entretien : L’emplacement du ventilateur devrait prévoir un accès suffisant pour l’entretien.

SECTION 2

Installation du ventilateur

1.En vous servant des vis à bois de 25 mm incluses, fixez le support de montage à un montant de support à l’emplacement choisi (Figure 1).

REMARQUE : Le ventilateur peut être installé à l’emplacement de votre choix le long du conduit, cependant, une installation verticale est recommandée afin de minimiser l’accumulation de condensation dans l’unité. Dans le cas où une installation horizontale s’avère nécessaire et que l’accumulation de condensation pourrait occasionner un problème, enveloppez le ventilateur d’isolant afin d’en minimiser l’accumulation.

2.Fixez le ventilateur au support de montage en utilisant les trois vis à tôle de 1,11 mm incluses, en vous assurant que la boîte de câblage soit facilement accessible (Figure 2).

REMARQUE : Le support est muni depasse-câblesisolés en caoutchouc pour la vibration afin d’empêcher la transmission du son par le truchement de la structure. Prenez soin de ne pas trop serrer. De plus,assurez-vousde ne pas dénuder la gaine de plastique. Les vis sont autotaraudeuses et ne requièrent pasd’avant-trous.Cependant, desavant-trousn’excédant pas 1,52 mm peuvent être utilisés afin de faciliter l’installation.

SECTION 3

Préparation pour l’installation du châssis au plafond

1.Choisissez un emplacement pour l’orifice d’entrée de la grille qui n’interfèrera pas avec une solive de plafond. Le châssis de la grille peut être installé directement sur la solive par le truchement des trous de serrure situés sur le côté du châssis ou au milieu des solives à 406,4 mm en vous servant des traverses de montage incluses.

2.Enlevez le couvercle de l’alvéole défonçable électrique ou l’une des autres alvéoles défonçables sur le châssis de la grille en vous servant d’un tournevis à lame plate (Figure 3).

Nouvelle construction

1.Installation des traverses de montage : Installez les traverses à travers le châssis de la grille et placez-lesà côté de la solive. En vous aidant des onglets de repère situés sur le châssis,alignez-lesde sorte à ce qu’ils soient à effleurement de la partie inférieure de la solive. Fixez l’extrémité des traverses aux solives, en vous servant des vis de 25,4 mm incluses, et faites glisser le châssis en position finale(Figure 4).
