Important Safety Instructions

READ AND SAVE THESE INSTRUCTIONS

Take care when using cleaning agents or detergents.

Suitable for use in household cooking area

CAUTION - 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.

CAUTION - For General Ventilating Use Only. Do Not Use To Exhaust Hazardous Or Explosive Materials And Vapors.

WARNING – TO REDUCE THE RISK OF FIRE, ELECTRIC SHOCK, OR INJURY TO PERSONS, OBSERVE THE FOLLOWING:

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

b.Before servicing or cleaning 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.

WARNING – TO REDUCE THE RISK OF A RANGE TOP GREASE FIRE:

a.Never leave surface units unattended at high settings. Boilovers cause smoking and greasy spillovers that may ignite. Heat oils slowly on low or medium settings.

b.Always turn hood ON when cooking at high heat or when cooking flaming foods.

c.Clean ventilating fans frequently. Grease should not be allowed to accumulate on fan or filter.

d.Use proper pan size. Always use cookware appropriate for the size of the surface element.

WARNING – TO REDUCE THE RISK OF INJURY TO PERSONS IN THE EVENT OF A RANGE TOP GREASE FIRE, OBSERVE THE FOLLOWING:

a.SMOTHER FLAMES with a close-fittinglid, cookie sheet, or metal tray, then turn off the burner. BE CAREFUL TO PREVENT BURNS. If the flames do not go out immediately, EVACUATE AND CALL THE FIRE DEPARTMENT.

b.NEVER PICK UP A FLAMING PAN – You may be burned.

c.DO NOT USE WATER, including wet dishcloths or towels – a violent steam explosion will result.

2.The fire is small and contained in the area where it started.

3.The fire department is being called.

4.You can fight the fire with your back to an exit.

WARNING – TO REDUCE THE RISK OF FIRE, ELECTRIC SHOCK, OR INJURY TO PERSONS, OBSERVE THE FOLLOWING:

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

b)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.

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

d)Ducted fans must always be vented to the outdoors.

Installation

FOR RESIDENTIAL USE ONLY

NOT TO BE INSTALLED OVER GAS GRILLS

PLEASE READ ENTIRE INSTRUCTIONS BEFORE PROCEEDING. INSTALLATION MUST COMPLY WITH ALL LOCAL CODES.

IMPORTANT: Save these Instructions for the Local Electrical Inspector’s use.INSTALLER: Please leave these Instructions with this unit for the owner.

OWNER: Please retain these instructions for future reference. Safety Warning: Turn off power circuit at the service entrance and lock out

panel, before wiring this appliance. Requirement: 120 V AC, 60 Hz. 15 or 20 A

Weight: 30” Model 34 lbs - 36” Model 38,5 lbs

Diameter of Transition 4” 3/4

Diameter of exhaust Duct required 4” 3/4

Considerations before installing Hood

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

CAUTION: Vent unit to outside of building, only.

2.If allowed in your area, use metallic flex ducting only to connect rigid duct directly to transitions.

3.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.

4.Hood installation height above cooktop is the users preference. The lower the hood above the cooktop, the more efficient the capturing of cooking odors, grease and smoke. We recommends the hood be installed 18,5” minimum above an electric cooktop or 25,6” minimum above a gas cooktop . Be sure that your hood model fits your installation.

Installation

Figure 2

Figure 3

Pre-Installationconsideration

The hood can be installed to be used in the following ways:

External exhausting version

Recycling version (with carbon filter to be ordered from your supplier)

External Exhausting Version

The air is expelled outside by means of a pipe to be connected to the coupling ring B (Figure 2).

In horizontal runs, the duct must be slightly slanted (about 10°) and directed upwards to vent the air easily from the room to the outside.

A non-returnsmoke valve is supplied as an optional to be mounted on the coupling flange .

Recycling version

The air is filtered through a carbon filter and recycled into the room.

If the hood has no filter ask for one from the technical assistance service or the manufacturing company, specifying the hood model.

To install the filter, insert it in the place provided and use the two hooks D to fasten it (Figure 4).

The filtered air is discharged above the wall cabinet through the baffle E, to be fastened by means of two screws provided directly on the vertical of the outlethole of the hood (if necessary fit a duct Ø120mm from the coupling flange to the upper edge of the hole provided on the top side of the cupboard (Figure 3).

Fastening the hood to the wall cabinet

Fit the drilling template, which comes with the hood, on the inner right side of the cabinet making sure side “A” coincides with back part.

Make at least two 2 mm. diameter holes at points 1-2(Figure 5). Perform the same operations on the inner left side.

Use screws F (4.5x16) to fasten the hood to the cabinet (Figure 6).Attention! While mounting the hood on the wall cabinet be sure once the hood has been fastened, to allow the wiring compartment to be easily and safely reachable, in order to make eventual safety inspections and/or maintenance operations.

Box adjustment

The hood can be installed in cabinets with different depths; the front of the box must always be in line with the cabinet.

For alignment, adjust the back stops of the box.

For box adjustment, loosen screws M, slide the square platesP as necessary, and tighten screwsM (Figure 7).

Ensure that the drawer, when fully retracted, turns OFF all power by acting positively on the rear microswitch.
