WARNING

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

1.Use this unit only in the manner intended by the manufacturer. If you have questions, contact the manufacturer at the address or telephone number in the warranty.

2.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.

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

4.Sufficient air is needed for proper combustion and exhausting of gases through the flue (chimney) of fuel-burningequipment to prevent backdrafting 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.

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

6.Do not use this unit with an additional speed control device.

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

8.To reduce the risk of fire, use only metal ductwork.

9.Do not install this product with the activating switch directly behind a burner or element. Minimum distance between the switch and the edge of the burner should be 4 inches.

10.Loose-fittingor hanging clothing should never be worn when operating this appliance. They may be ignited by burners/ elements on cooktop.

11.Children should not be left alone or unattended in the area where this appliance is in use.

12.When flaming foods, turn the blower OFF. An operating blower may spread the flames.

TO REDUCE THE RISK OF A RANGE TOP GREASE FIRE:

1.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.

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

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

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

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

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 immedi ately, 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.

D.Use an extinguisher ONLY if:

1. You know you have a Class ABC extinguisher, and you already know how to operate it.

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.

a Based on “Kitchen Firesafety Tips” published by NFPA.

TAKE MEASUREMENTS

1.Refer to the cooktop installation instructions for dimensions of cooktop, countertop cut-out,and cabinet requirements. The Model 2730 will fit in most 30" wide cabinets and the Model 2736 will fit in most 36" wide cabinets. However, it is recommended that oversized cabinets be used for easier installation.

2.Cooktop depth can vary greatly from one to another. This may cause the fit of these two appliances to be rather tight.

Pay special attention to the areas of potential interference highlighted above. A countertop with (A) a raised lip and/or (B) a backsplash may not allow enough flat countertop for a proper installation. Note that 2" of flat countertop is required behind cooktop and that 1-3/4"is necessary between the back edge of the cooktop and the inside of cabinet back.

DOWN DISCHARGE (as shipped)

1.This downdraft blower system is designed for use with 3-1/4"x 10" ductwork (can be transitioned to 6" round). Three different discharge directions are available withside-to-sideadjustment for accurate alignment of ductwork.

2.For best performance: Choose the ducting option which allows the shortest length of ductwork and a minimum number of elbows and transitions. Check location of floor joists, wall studs, electrical wiring or plumbing for possible interference. NOTE: The unit is shipped with the 3-1/4"x 10" discharge facing DOWN. See “CHANGING BLOWER DIRECTION” on page 3, if necessary.

3.The system will operate most efficiently when the ductwork does not exceed 40 feet of equivalent duct. The chart, above, shows equivalent feet of elbows and transitions. The number of feet of straight duct plus the equivalent feet of transitions and/or elbows to be used should equal 40 feet or less.

NOTE: The equivalent feet of various roof and wall caps has been taken into consideration. Do not include them in this calculation.

PLAN THE WIRING

1.The downdraft blower system draws 4 AMPS and requires a 120 VAC, 60 Hz circuit.

2.The unit has a 2 ft. long power cord with a 3-prongedplug. Plan to provide a grounded outlet in a location which will allow the unit’s power cord to reach. (Note: If the Model 2730 is being installed in a 30" wide cabinet or the Model 2736 is being installed in a 36" wide cabinet, the outlet cannot be located on the back wall of cabinet.) Outlet may also bewall-mounted,with access hole in cabinet.

1.Cut hole in cabinet as well as holes in wall or floor as necessary.

2.Mount the roof or wall cap and work back towards the cabinet, attaching all ductwork, elbows and transitions as previously planned. Tape all ductwork connections to make them secure and air tight.

3.Connect ductwork (and transition, if required) to downdraft. If necessary, LOOSEN nuts and screws that hold the blower in place, and slide blower left or right to meet ductwork. Retighten screws and nuts.

Note: A3-1/4"x 10" collar is provided for installers who prefer to rivet the ductwork to the unit. This will allow blower to be removed and replaced easily in service situations without disturbing ductwork.

INSTALL ELECTRICAL WIRING

1.Mount a standard wiring box, with 3-prongedreceptacle, inside the cabinet. Make sure the downdraft’s power cord can easily reach it.

2.Run appropriate power cable into cabinet and connect it to receptacle.

3.Plug the downdraft’s power cord into the outlet.

INSTALL COOKTOP

1.Align the cooktop with the downdraft and fasten cooktop in place.

Note: Accurate alignment of cooktop and downdraft is necessary to ensure that there is no interference when air vent is raised and lowered. There should be a gap of1/32"-1/16"between the back of the cooktop and the front of the downdraft cover.

ADJUSTMENT

The downdraft is factory-adjustedfor proper operation. However, shipping and handling may affect the position of the activating switch.

To adjust position of activating switch:

WARNING: To avoid possible electrical shock, personal injury or death - Disconnect electrical power.

1.If downdraft is plugged into electrical outlet, unplug it.

2.Lift air vent straight up and cock it slightly so it remains in the UP position.

5.Replace switch cover, gently lower air vent into chimney, and

plug in power cord. Re-connectelectrical power and check4 operation.

USE AND CARE

Always turn the downdraft blower on before you begin cooking to establish an air flow in the kitchen. Let the blower run for a few minutes to clean the air after you turn the cooktop off. This will keep the whole kitchen cleaner and brighter.

CONTROLS

Turn the downdraft blower ON by pressing down on the activating switch. The air vent will rise.

KNOB

The blower can be turned ON or OFF and its speed can be adjusted with the recessed knob on the right side of the air vent.

Turn the downdraft blower OFF by pressing the activating switch again. The air vent will go down and the blower will shut OFF.

Note: For most convenient operation, set the blower to your favorite speed. The blower will come on to this speed whenever the activating switch is pressed and the air vent rises.
