Before installing the hood

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

Vent unit to outside of building, only.

2.At least two people are necessary for installation.

3.The hood is fitted with Screws and Drywall Anchors suitable for most surfaces, consult a Qualified Installer, check if they perfectly fit with your cabinet/wall.

4.Do not use flex ducting.

5.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.

6.Make up air: Local building codes may require the use of Make-UpAir Systems when using Ducted 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.

Installing the hood

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

Vent unit to outside of building, only.

On avarage 2 to 3 hours are necessary to complete installation (without considering cut to be done on wall and or on cabinet, installation of ducts , conduit and electrical connections to the mains).

The hood is fitted with Screws and Drywall Anchors suitable for most surfaces, consult a Qualified Installer, check if they perfectly fit with your cabinet/wall.

Do not use flex ducting.

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.

Make up air: Local building codes may require the use of Make-UpAir Systems when using Ducted 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.

Typical installation

Min installation height from the range top to the bottom of the hood is 30" if a gas range is used or 24" to 30" if an electric range is used.

These hoods are not recommended to be used over indoor grills.

The hood may be installed onto a wall and vented to the outdoors, or it can be installed for recirculating operation (recirculating accessories not supplied with the hood).

This hood can be installed over any electric and gas cooktop/range.

It can not be installed over any professional cooktop / range.

Installing preparation

Advance planning

Determine the exact location of the vent hood.

Plan the route for venting exhaust to the outdoors.

Use the shortest and straightest duct route possible.

Refer to “Ductwork installation guidelines” paragraph for further informations.

Install a wall cap with damper or roof cap at the exterior opening. Order the wall or roof cap and anytransition needed in advance.

Use 8" round metal ductwork only.

Wall framing for adequate support

This vent hood is heavy.

‘Adequate structure and support must be provided in all types of installations. Thehood must be secure to vertical studs in the wall, or to a horizontal support.

The vent hood should be on site before final framing and wall finishing. This will help to accurately locatethe duct work and electrical service.

Installation will be easier if the vent hood is installed before the cook-topand countertop are installed.

Removing the packaging

Remove carton carefully, Wear gloves to protect against sharp edges.

Remove the protective film covering the product before putting into operation.

Ductwork installation guidelines

For safety reasons, ducting should vent directly outdoors (not into an attic, underneath the house, into the garage or into any enclosed space). Keep duct runs as short and straight as possible.

Duct fittings (elbows and transitions) reduce air flow efficiency.

Back to back elbows and „S“ turns give very poor delivery and are not recommended.

A short straight length of duct at the inlet of the remote blower gives the best delivery.

Transition to duct from the integral blower or remote duct transition as close to the downdraft as is possible.

In order of preference, use 1st. 10" round duct

2nd. 8" round duct 3rd. 3-1/4"x 14" duct 4th. 7" round duct 5th.3-1/4"x l0" duct 6th. 6" round duct

The use of flexible metal round duct should only be used when no other duct fitting exists. Limit use to short lengths and do not crush when making corners.

Ductwork and wiring locations

Determine the exact location of the vent hood.

Locate the template packed with the literature.

Installation height: 30" gas cooktop/range or 24" to 30" electric cooktop/range.

Use a level to draw a horizontal straight pencil line on the wall, which is your desired installationheight.

Find the centerline of the cooktop. Use a level to draw a vertical straight pencil line on the wall.

CHECK TO BE SURE THE LINE IS PERFECTLY PERPERNDICULAR.

Mounting the duct cover bracket

The duct cover bracket should be installed against the back wall and flush with the ceiling. This bracket will hold the telescopic duct cover in place at the top (this a extra accessory available not included with the hood).

.

Secure the bracket to the wall:

Align the marked centerline on the bracket with the centerline on the wall.

Mark 2 screw hole locations in the wall.

Drill 5/16" pilot holes in the marked locations.

Install wall fastener anchors.

Drive wood screws, by hand, into the fastener to allow anchors to expand. Remove the screws.

Secure the bracket to the wall with wood screws and/or fasteners.

Ceiling

Wall

centerline Vertical

Ceiling ducting

If the duct will vent straight up to the ceiling:

Use level to draw a line straight up, from the centerline on the template to the ceiling.

Measure at least 4 -3/4” from the back wall to the circle center of an8-½”hole on the ceiling.

Wall ducting

If ductwork will vent to rear:

Use a level to draw a line straight up from the centerline on the template.

Measure at least 23 - 3/4" (the measure might vary dependig on the elbow used) above the pencil line that indicates the bottom installation height, to the circle center of an 8-½”diameter duct hole (Hole may be elongated for duct elbow).

House wiring location

The junction box is located on the top left side of the hood.

Wiring should enter the back wall at least 20" above the bottom of the installation height, and within 5-7/8"and4-7/8"ofthe left side of the centerline.
