Note: All dimensions are shown in inches.

* Dimensions are given from base of hood to ceiling, and include clearance required for installation.

Weight: 42 lbs

Diameter of Transition: 6”

Diameter of exhaust Duct required: 6”

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 30-36"above the countertop. The lower height may be inconvenient for tall people and large cooking vessels. Check your ceiling height and the hood height maximum before you select your hood.

Preparation of mounting surface (Drywall)

1.Select a mounting height comfortable for the user and mark on wall behind cooktop.

2.Mark center line of cooktop and draw vertical line from bottom of hood to the ceiling.

3.Tape template, matching center-lineand hood bottom as shown in Figure 2.

4.Mark centers of the 6 fastener locations through template on wall then remove template.

Figure 2

5.Mark wall with horizontal line 1" above highest and 1" below lowest fastener location.

6.Find studs behind drywall by

tapping wall or using a stud finder. Mark the center of the studs with a vertical line to the right and left of the marked fastener location. Note: 2 x 6's must span at least 2 studs side to side.

7.Cutout drywall along marked lines. Install 2 x 6's between studs firmly flush with stud front. Make sure all mounting screws will anchor to added lumber. Replace drywall and refinish.

8.Remark center line and hood bottom on same location as before and tape template on wall as in step 3 above.

9.Mount 2 mounting hooks with wood screws (supplied in mounting hardware kit) on locationsmarked on template, then remove template.

10.Install duct cover ceiling bracket to wall flush to ceiling with drywall anchors supplied. Figure 3.

12.Hang hood on 2 mounting hooks through the rectangular cutouts on back of hood. Figure 5

13.Level the appliance, using a carpenters level across bottom of hood with leveling screws in mounting hooks or rectangular cutouts.

14.Secure hood with 2 screws on top and 2 screws on bottom. See Figure 5.

15.Connect ducting (Figure 4).

Note: for blower serviceability, leave a gap of 1" minimum between top of transition and sheet metal duct and cover gap with a starting collar wrapped around duct and transition. Locate collar screws so they fit into corner of duct cover. Secure collar to transition and duct with three sheet metal screws each. Seal with duct tape.

Do not use duct smaller than the transition.

21.Make sure to leave this manual for the home owner.

Alternate - reduced ceiling height Installation:

 

The hood may be installed with only the lower part of the duct cover to

 

reduce the overall height.

 

For the duct cover to slide down and engage the top of the hood, the ceiling

 

bracket must be mounted 1/4" below the ceiling.

 

The resulting space on top of the chimney can be filled with a 1/4” thick piece

Figure 7

of plywood cut to the inside cross section of the chimney cover and finished

to match the ceiling.

 

Cut the self-adhesiverubber tape supplied with the hood in 4 identical

 

sections. Attach two pieces of tape to each side of the ceiling bracket. Figure
