Installing the hood

For the most efficient air flow exhaust, use a straight run or as few elbows as possible.

Vent unit to outside of building, only.

On avarage 2 to 3 hours are necessary to complete installation (without considering cut to be done on wall and or on cabinet, installation of ducts , conduit and electrical connections to the mains).

The hood is fitted with Screws and Drywall Anchors suitable for most surfaces, consult a Qualified Installer, check if they perfectly fit with your cabinet/wall.

Do not use flex ducting.

COLD WEATHER installations should have an additional backdraft damper installed to minimize backward cold air flow and a nonmetallic thermal break to minimize conduction of outside temperatures as part of the ductwork. The damper should be on the cold air side of the thermal break.

The break should be as close as possible to where the ducting enters the heated portion of the house.

Make up air: Local building codes may require the use of Make-UpAir Systems when using Ducted Ventilation Systems greater than specified CFM of air movement.

The specified CFM varies from locale to locale. Consult your HVAC professional for specific requirements in your area.

Typical installation

Min installation height from the range top to the bottom of the hood is 30" if a gas range is used or 24" to 30" if an electric range is used.

These hoods are not recommended to be used over indoor grills.

The hood may be installed onto a wall and vented to the outdoors, or it can be installed for recirculating operation (recirculating accessories not supplied with the hood).

This hood can be installed over any electric and gas cooktop/range.

It can not be installed over any professional cooktop / range.

Installing preparation

Advance planning

Determine the exact location of the vent hood.

Plan the route for venting exhaust to the outdoors.

Use the shortest and straightest duct route possible.

Refer to “Ductwork installation guidelines” paragraph for further informations.

Install a wall cap with damper or roof cap at the exterior opening. Order the wall or roof cap and anytransition needed in advance.

Use 8" round metal ductwork only.

Wall framing for adequate support

This vent hood is heavy.

‘Adequate structure and support must be provided in all types of installations. The hood must be secure to vertical studs in the wall, or to a horizontal support.

The vent hood should be on site before final framing and wall finishing. This will help to accurately locatethe duct work and electrical service.

Installation will be easier if the vent hood is installed before the cook-topand countertop are installed.

Removing the packaging

Remove carton carefully, Wear gloves to protect against sharp edges.

Remove the protective film covering the product before putting into operation.

Ductwork installation guidelines

For safety reasons, ducting should vent directly outdoors (not into an attic, underneath the house, into the garage or into any enclosed space). Keep duct runs as short and straight as possible.

Duct fittings (elbows and transitions) reduce air flow efficiency.

Back to back elbows and „S“ turns give very poor delivery and are not recommended.

A short straight length of duct at the inlet of the remote blower gives the best delivery.

Transition to duct from the integral blower or remote duct transition as close to the downdraft as is possible.

In order of preference, use 1st. 10" round duct

2nd. 8" round duct 3rd. 3-1/4"x 14" duct 4th. 7" round duct 5th.3-1/4"x l0" duct 6th. 6" round duct

The use of flexible metal round duct should only be used when no other duct fitting exists. Limit use to short lengths and do not crush when making corners.

Ductwork and wiring locations

Determine the exact location of the vent hood.

Locate the template packed with the literature.

The height installation is determined by the following image. Mark the location.

Installation height

Installation height: 30" gas cooktop/range or 24" to 30" electric cooktop/range.

Use a level to draw a horizontal straight pencil line on the wall, which is your desired installationheight.

Find the centerline of the cooktop. Use a level to draw a vertical straight pencil line on the wall.

CHECK TO BE SURE THE LINE IS PERFECTLY PERPERNDICULAR.

When the temperature level on the hood drops to normal, the blower will operate in the setting defined by the user before the alarm occured.

18

For Best results

Continuous use of the fan system while cooking helps keep the kitchen comfortable and less humid.

It also reduces cooking odors and soiling moisture that create a frequent need for cleaning.

Turn the blower on before starting to cook.

Use a rear burner when browning or pan frying meat.

Open a window or inside door slightly.

Clean the filters and the wall behind the filters frequently.

The blower should be turned on for a few minutes before cooking in order to establish air currents upward through the hood. Thus when heat, smoke, moisture, grease and cooking odors are produced, they will be carried outside instead of drifting into other rooms.

Use the low speeds for normal use and the higher speeds for strong odors or fumes.

Drafts across the range or cooktop will cause the escape of heat, smoke, moisture, grease and cooking odors from the hood. Such drafts should be prevented in so far as possible.

The best job of ventilation in the kitchen is done where the only air currents are those created by the blower itself.

For Gas Cooktops, a lower blower speed should be used if:

the gas flame is being distorted by the air movement.

the burner continually sparks (clicks)

the burner flame repeatedly blows out.

Care and cleaning

19

 

Care and cleaning

The efficiency of the range hood system depends on the cleanliness of the intake and filters.

The frequency of cleaning depends on the amount and type of cooking.

Do not use the ventilating system without the filters in place or with grease-ladenfilters or surfaces.

To avoid risk of fire and explosion do not use flammable liquids or solvents.

Always unplug or disconnect the appliance from the power supply before servicing.

Be sure the entire hood (including the filters and light bulbs) has cooled and grease has solidified before attempting to clean any part of the appliance.

If the model is not vented to the outside, the air will be recirculated through disposable charcoal filters that help remove smoke and odors.

The charcoal filters cannot be cleaned. They must be replaced.

The charcoal filters are clipped inside of each metal grease filter (mounting instructions included with charcoal filters kit).

The charcoal filters should be replaced every 4-6months (depending on hood usage).NOTE: DO NOT rinse, or put charcoal filters in an automatic dishwasher.

NOTE: Charcoal filters arenot included with the hood. They must be ordered from your supplier.

Order the needed kit specifying your hood model and width size.

Charcoal filter placement (Recirculating accessories)

Fit the charcoal filter mattress on the upper side of each grease filter. Use provided springs to fix it in place.

Note: When removing for replacing for a new one do not remove Fixing Springs, simply pull out and rotate outwards.

Cleaning

Always use the mildest cleaner that will do the job. Use clean, soft cloths, sponges or paper towels.

Rub stainless steel finishes in the direction of the grain. Wipe area dry to avoid water marks.

After cleaning, place all parts in their proper positions before using.

The cleaners recommended below indicate a type and do not constitute an endorsement. Use all products according to package directions.

Hood Surface

Painted Surfaces: For general care, wipe the outside of the hood with sudsy water or household cleaners such as Fantastic or Formula 409, rinse well and dry with a clean soft cloth to avoid water marks.

Stainless Steel Surfaces: Wipe and dry stainless steel in the same direction as the grain. Avoid using too much pressure, which may mar the surface. To

remove finger prints and give added shine, use cleaners such as Stainless Steel Magic. Do not allow any cleaning compounds to remain in contact with stainless steel for extended periods.

Plastic surfaces: Wipe with a moist soapy sponge. Rinse and dry.

Aluminum Mesh Filters: Clean filters in the dishwasher or by agitating in sudsy water. Ensure that there is no soil trapped in the fine mesh. Dry the filters before reinstalling them.

Anodized Aluminum surfaces: Top cap is not removable. Wash top and underside with hot sudsy water. Rinse and wipe dry or apply Fantastic® or Formula 409® first to a clean sponge or paper towel and wipe clean. DO NOT USE powdered cleansers or steel wool pads.
