Important Safety Instructions

READ AND SAVE THESE INSTRUCTIONS

!

FOR DOMESTIC COOKING ONLY !

WARNING

 

 

CAUTION !

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 listed 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 burning equipment to prevent backdrafting. 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 of 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.To reduce the risk of fire or electric shock, do not use this range hood 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.Use with approved cord-connectionkit only.

10.This unit must be grounded.

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 FOLLOWING:*

1.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.

2.NEVER PICK UP A FLAMING PAN — You may be burned.

3.DO NOT USE WATER, including wet dishcloths or towels - violent steam explosion will result.

4.Use an extinguisher ONLY if:

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

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

C.The fire department is being called.

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

*Based on “Kitchen Fire Safety Tips” published by NFPA.

1.For general ventilating use only. Do not use to exhaust hazardous or explosive materials and vapors.

2.To avoid motor bearing damage and noisy and/or unbalanced impellers, keep drywall spray, construction dust, etc. off power unit.

3.For best capture of cooking impurities, your range hood should be mounted so that the top of the hood is 24-30”above the cooking surface.

4.Please read specification label on product for further information and requirements.

Installer: Leave this manual with the homeowner.

Homeowner: Operating and Cleaning information on page 8.

NOTE

If hood is to be installed Non-Ducted:

 

• Purchase a set of (2) non-ductedfilters from your

 

local distributor or retailer and attach them to the

 

aluminum mesh filters.

filters, turn on power at service panel, and test for operation.

NON-DUCTEDFILTERS

OPERATION

If hood is to be installed Non-Ducted:

Purchase a set of (2) Non-DuctedFilters from your local distributor or retailer and attach them to the aluminum mesh filters.

NOTE: For models that are installed in thenon-ductedmode, the most effective operation is achieved at speeds 1 and 2. These speeds provide the most efficient and quiet operation during cooking, while maximizing the benefits of the recirculating filtration system.

Fan and Lights: 3 push button switches for each. Push any button to select one of 3 fan speeds or one of 3 light levels. Push the same button to turn fan or light off. Press another button to change fan speed or light level. A light above each fan button indicates the fan speed.

Heat Sentry: Your range hood is equipped with the Heat Sentry feature, which monitors temperature. The Heat Sentry will automatically turn the fan on at its highest speed when the temperature is above normal.

1)If a fan setting is selected when the Heat Sentry in on, the light above the fan button will flash on and off.

2)If the fan setting is off when the Heat Sentry is on, the light above fan button 3 will flash on and off rapidly.

After the temperature has lowered to normal, the fan will change to the setting prior to the Heat Sentry turning on.

Fuse: The hood control contains a fuse to protect it from power surges. If the fuse has opened (blown), the greenfan-levelindicators will operate properly when the fan buttons/switches are pressed - but the fan and lights will not turn on.

The fuse is a 5 x 20 mm, 10 Amp, Fast-Acting,125V (min.). Common manufacturer and part numbers are: Littlefuse, 217010; Bussmann, GMA10A; Wickmann, 1942100. Radio Shack, Digikey(1-800-344-4539),and most electronic supply stores have them in stock.

To replace the fuse:

1.Disconnect power at service entrance.

2.Remove filters, bottom panel, light wire harness, and air chute.

3.Remove and inspect fuse. If it is not open (blown), additional diagnostics need to be done.

4.Install new fuse.

5.Re-assembleair chute, light wire harness, bottom panel, and filters.

6.Turn on power and check hood/control operation.

CLEANING

WARNING: To reduce the risk of electric shock, disconnect from power supply before cleaning.

Aluminum mesh filters: Clean frequently using hot water and a mild detergent. Filters are dishwasher safe.

Charcoal filters: Clean filter surfaces frequently with a damp cloth and a mild detergent. DO NOT immerse filters in water or put in dishwasher. The special “Clean Sense” feature indicates when the filter is to be replaced. The blue and yellow strips will blend to green when it is time to change the filter. The “Clean Sense” feature works best when facing toward the cooking surface.

To clean hood: Remove filters. Use a damp cloth and a mild detergent to wipe allgrease-ladensurfaces. Do not use abrasive cloth, steel wool pads, or scouring powder on theTeflon®-coatedbottom cover or on any painted surface. Use care when cleaning blower wheel - it must not become bent or misaligned. DO NOT ALLOW WATER TO ENTER MOTOR. Make sure all surfaces are completely dry beforere-installingfilters and restoring power.

Motor is permanently lubricated. Do not oil or disassemble motor.
