IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS

CAUTION

FOR GENERAL VENTILATING USE ONLY. DO NOT USE TO EXHAUST HAZARDOUS OR EXPLOSIVE MATERIALS OR 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 the unit, switch power off at service panel and lock service panel 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.

C.Installation Work and Electrical Wiring Must Be Done

By Qualified Person(s) In Accordance With all

Aplicable Codes & Standards, Including Fire-ratedConstruction.

D.Sufficient air is needed for proper combustion and ex hausting of gases through the flue (Chimney) of fuel burning equipment to prevent backdrafting. Follow the heating equipment manufacturers guideline and safety standards such as those published by the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA), the American Society for Heating, Refrigeration and Air Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE), and the local code authorities.

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

F.Ducted systems must always be vented to the outdoors.

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, ceilings, attics, crawl spaces, or garages.

WARNING

TO REDUCE THE RISK OF FIRE, USE ONLY METAL DUCT WORK.

Install this hood in accordance with all requirements specified.

IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS

WARNING

To Reduce The Risk Of Fire Or Electric Shock, Do

Not Use This Hood With Any External Solid State

Speed Control Device.

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 flambeing food (l.e. Crepes Suzette, Cherries

Jubilee, Peppercorn Beef Flambe’).

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 - fitting lid, cookie sheet, or other metal tray, then turn off the gas burner or the electric element.

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.

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.

OPERATION

Always leave safety grills and filters in place.Without these components, operating blowers could catch onto hair, fingers and loose clothing.

The manufacturer declines all responsibility in the event of failure to observe the instructions given here for installation,maintenance and suitable use of the product. The manufacturer further declines all responsibility for injury due to negligence and the warranty of the unit automatically expires due to improper maintenance.

Observe all governing codes and ordinances.

Ensure that the electrical installation is adequate and in conformance with National Electrical Code, ANSI/NFPA 70 (latest edition), or CSA Standards C22.1-94,Canadian Electrical Code, Part 1 and C22.2 No.0-M91(latest edition) and all local codes and ordinances.

If codes permit and a separate ground wire is used, it is recommended that a qualified electrician determine that the ground path is adequate.

A copy of the above code standards can be obtained from:

National Fire Protection Association

One Batterymarch Park

Quincy, MA 02269

CSA International

8501 East Pleasant Valley Road

Cleveland, OH 44131-5575

A 120 volt, 60 Hz., AC only, 15-amp,fused electrical circuit is required.

If the house has aluminum wiring, follow the procedure below:

1.Connect a section of solid copper wire to the pigtail leads.

. Connect the aluminum wiring to the added section of copper wire using special co nectors and/or tools designed and UL listed for joining copper to aluminum.

Follow the electrical connector manufacturer’s recommended procedure. Aluminum/copper connection must conform with local codes and industry accepted wiring practices.

Wire sizes and connections must conform with the rating of the appliance as specified on the model/serial rating plate.

The model/serial plate is located on the left side of the range hood.

Wire sizes must conform to the requirements of the National Electrical Code, ANSI/NFPA 70 (la est edition), or CSA Standards C22. 1-94,Canad an Electrical Code, Part 1 and C22.2 No.0-M91(latest edition) and all local codes and ordinances.

LOCATION REQUIREMENTS

IMPORTANT

Observe all governing codes and ordinances.

It is the installer’s responsibility to comply with installation clearances specified on the model/serial rating plate. The model/serial rating plate is located inside the range hood on the left side (See page 2 for location). Range hood location should be away from strong draft areas, such as windows, doors and strong heating vents.

Cabinet opening dimensions that are shown must be used. Given dimensions provide minimum clearance. Consult the cooktop/range manufacturer installation instructions before making any cutouts.

Grounded electrical outlet is required. See “Electrical Requirements” section.

All openings in ceiling and wall where canopy hood will be installed must be sealed.

For Mobile Home Installations

The installation of this range hood must conform to the Manufactured Home Construction Safety Standards, Title 24 CFR, Part 328 (formerly the Federal Standard for Mobile Home Construction and Safety, Title 24, HUD, Part 280) or when such standard is not applicable, the standard for Manufactured Home Installation 1982 (Manufactured Home Sites, Communities and Setups) ANSI A225.1/NFPA 501A, or latest edition, or with local codes.

Vent system must terminate to the outdoors.

Do not terminate the vent system into an attic or other enclosed area.

Do not use a 4” (10.2 cm) laundry-typewall cap.

Use a 3¼” x 10” (8.3 x 25.4 cm) rectangular metal vent. Rigid metal vent is recommended. Plastic or metal foil vent is not recommended.

The length of vent system and number of elbows should be kept to a minimum to provide efficient performance.

For the most efficient and quiet operation:

Use no more than three 90° elbows.

Make sure there is a minimum of 24” (61 cm) of straight vent between the elbows if more than 1 elbow is used.

Do not install 2 elbows together.

Use clamps or duct tape to seal all joints in the vent system.

The vent system at exit must have a cold air damper.

Use caulking to seal exterior wall or roof opening around the cap.

Best performances are reached with straight piping, without elbows and using smooth pipe.

Maximum recomended vent system length: 35 ft (10.7m).

Cold Weather Installations

An additional back draft damper should be installed to minimize backward cold air flow and a thermal break should be installed to minimize conduction of outside temperatures as part of the vent system. The damper should be on the cold air side of the thermal break.

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

Makeup Air

Local building codes may require the use of makeup air systems when using 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.

Venting Methods

Vent system can terminate either through the roof or wall. Use 3¼” x 10” (8.3 x 25.4 cm) rectangular with a maximum vent length of 35 ft (10.7 m) or 7” (17.8 cm) round vent with a maximum length of 50 ft (15.2 m) for vent system.

NOTE

Flexible vent is not recommended. Flexible vent creates both back pressure and air turbulence that greatly reduce performance.
