1.To reduce risk of fire and to properly exhaust air, be sure to duct air outside. Do not vent exhaust air into spaces within walls or ceilings or into attics, crawl spaces, or garages.
2.Take care when using cleaning agents or detergents.
3.Avoid using food products that produce flames under the Range Hood.
4.For general ventilating use only. Do not use to exhaust hazardous or explosive materials and vapors.
5.To avoid motor bearing damage and noisy and/or unbalanced impellers, keep drywall spray, construction dust, etc. off power unit.
6.Your hood motor has a thermal overload which will automatically shut off the motor if it becomes overheated. The motor will restart when it cools down. If the motor continues to shut off and restart, have the hood serviced.
7.For best capture of cooking impurities, the bottom of the hood should be a minimum of 24" and a maximum of 30" above the cooking surface.
8.Two installers are recommended because of the large size and weight of this hood.
9.This product is equipped with a thermostat which may start blower automatically. To reduce the risk of injury and to prevent power from being switched on accidentally, switch power off at service panel and lock or tag service panel.

INSTALL THE DUCTWORK
NOTE: To reduce the risk of fire, use only metal ductwork.
1.Decide where the ductwork will run between the hood and the outside.
2.A straight, short duct run will allow the hood to perform most efficiently.
3.Long duct runs, elbows, and transitions will reduce the performance of the hood. Use as few of them as possible. Larger ducting may be required for best performance with longer duct runs.
4.Install a roof or wall cap. Connect round metal ductwork to cap and work back towards hood location. Use duct tape to seal the joints between ductwork sections.
1.Construct wood wall framing that isflush with interior surface of wall studs.Make sure:
a)the framing is centered over installation location.
b)the height of the framing will allow the mounting brackets to be secured to the framing within the dimensions shown.
2.After wall surface is finished, secure mounting brackets to framing using dimensions shown.

Note: This range hood must be properly
grounded. The unit should be installed by a
qualified electrician in accordance with all
applicable national and local electrical
This appliance must be grounded. In the event of an electrical short circuit, grounding reduces the risk of electric shock by providing an escape wire for the electric current. This appliance is equipped with a cord having a grounding wire with a grounding plug. The plug must be plugged into an outlet that is properly installed and grounded.
WARNING - Improper grounding can result in a risk of electric shock.
Consult a qualified electrician if the grounding instructions are not completely understood, or if doubt exists as to whether the appliance is properly grounded. Do not use an extension cord. If the power supply cord is too short, have a qualified electrician install an outlet near the appliance.
Set the electrical power supply within the space covered by the decorative flues.
Position the power socket at a maximum distance of
Fit the plug into the power socket.

Stainless steel is one of the easiest materials to keep clean. Occasional care will help preserve its fine appearance.
●Hot water with soap or detergent is all that is usually needed.
●Follow all cleaning by rinsing with clear water. Wipe dry with a clean, soft cloth to avoid water marks.
●For discolorations or deposits that persist, use a
●For stubborn cases, use a plastic scouring pad or soft bristle brush together with cleaser and water. Rub lightly in direction of polishing lines or "grain" of the stainless finish. Avoid using too much pressure which may mar the surface.
●DO NOT allow deposits to remain for long periods of time.
●DO NOT use ordinary steel wool or steel brushes. Small bits of steel may adhere to the surface causing rust.
●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 and wipe dry with a clean cloth.
Painted surfaces should be cleaned with warm water and mild detergent only.

Your hood is equipped with a HEAT SENTRY™ thermostat. This thermostat is a device that will turn on or speed up the blower if it senses excessive heat above the cooking surface.
1)If blower is OFF - it turns blower ON to HIGH speed.
2)If blower is ON at a lower speed setting - it turns blower up to HIGH speed. When the temperature level drops to normal, the blower will return to its original setting.
The HEAT SENTRY thermostat can start the blower even if the hood is turned OFF. When this occurs, it is impossible to turn the blower OFF with its switch. If you must stop the blower, do it from the main electrical panel.
