2.For best capture of cooking impurities, range hood should be mounted so that the bottom of the hood is 18”-24” above the cooking surface.

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 flambeing food (i.e. Crepes Suzette, Cherries Jubilee, Peppercorn Beef Flambe).

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.

3.Read specification label on product for information and requirements.

NOTE These instructions are for ducted installations only.

If hood is to be installed non-ducted:

cleaning & Maintenance

For performance, appearance, and health reasons, clean filter, fan and grease-laden surfaces. Use only a clean cloth and mild detergent solution on stainless and painted surfaces. Clean allmetal filters in the dishwasher.

The motor is permanently lubricated and never needs oiling. If the motor bearings make excessive or unusual noise, replace the motor with the exact service motor. The impeller should also be replaced.

Use 120 V, 50 W, shielded halogen bulbs - MR16 or PAR16 with GU10 base. Purchase bulbs separately.

The grease filters, bottom panel, and blower wheel should be cleaned frequently. Use a warm detergent solution. The grease filters and blower wheel are dishwasher safe.

Note: Some minerals, when in contact with dishwasher soap additives, may cause filters to discolor. This discoloration is not covered by the warranty.

operation

Always turn the hood ON before cooking in order to establish an air flow in the kitchen.After turning off the range, let the hood run for a few minutes to clear the air.

HEAT SENTRY™

The hood is equipped with a Heat Sentry™ thermostat. This safety device will turn on or speed up the blower if it senses excess heat above the cooking surface.

If the blower is not on, or if it is running at low speed, the Heat Senttry™ will override the normal blower control and trun the blower on the high speed. When the temperature level drops to normal levels, the blower will return to its original setting.
