SAFETY PRACTICES & PRECAUTIONS

This Vent Hood system is designed to remove smoke, cooking vapors and odors from the cooktop area.

WARNING:

All wall and floor openings where the vent hood is installed must be sealed.

Consult the cooktop or range installation instructions given by the manufacturer before making any cutouts. MOBILE HOME INSTALLATIONThe installation of this Hood must conform to the Manufactured Home Construction and Safety Standards, Title 24 CFR, Part 3280 (formerly Federal Standard for Mobile Home Construction and Safety, Title 24, HUD, Part 280). Three wire power supply must be used and the appliance wiring must be revised. See electrical requirements on page 1.

DO NOT use 4" laundry-typewall caps.

Flexible-typeductwork is not recommended.

DO NOT obstruct the flow of combustion and ventilation air. Be sure a fresh air supply is available.

Failure to follow venting requirements may result in a fire.

Electrical ground is required on this Hood.

If cold water pipe is interrupted by plastic, non-metallicgaskets or other materials, DO NOT use for grounding.

DO NOT ground to a gas pipe.

DO NOT have a fuse in the neutral or grounding circuit. A fuse in the neutral or grounding circuit could result in electrical shock.

Check with a qualified electrician if you are in doubt as to whether the Hood is properly grounded.

Failure to follow electrical requirements may result in a fire.

Be sure all the range and/or cooktop controls are turned off and the appliance is cool before using any type of aerosol cleaner on or around the appliance. The chemical that produces the spraying action could, in the presence of heat, ignite or cause metal parts to corrode.

Clean the ventilator hood and filters above the range or cooktop frequently so grease from cooking vapors does not accumulate on them.

Service should only be done by authorized technicians. Technicians must disconnect the power supply before servicing this appliance.

WARNING:

California Proposition 65 - The burning of gas cooking fuel generates some by-productswhich are known by the State of California to cause cancer or reproductive harm. California law requires businesses to warn customers of potential exposure to such substances. To minimize exposure to these substances, always operate this unit according to the instructions contained in this booklet and provide good ventilation to the room when cooking with gas.

FAN CONTROL

Turn to LO, MED, HI or MAX as needed. Continuous use of the fan system while cooking helps keep the kitchen comfortable and less humid. It also reduces cooking odors and soiling moisture that create a frequent need for cleaning.

ALWAYS USE THE MAX SETTING WHEN GRILLING.

LIGHT CONTROL

Turn to HI while cooking or to LO for use as a night light.

HOOD OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS

The blower should be turned on for a few minutes before cooking in order to establish air currents upward through the hood. Thus when heat, smoke, moisture, grease and cooking odors are produced, they will be carried outside instead of drifting into other rooms. Use the low speeds for normal use and the higher speeds for strong odors or fumes. Drafts across the range or cooktop will cause the escape of heat, smoke, moisture, grease and cooking odors from the hood. Such drafts should be prevented in so far as possible. The best job of ventilation in the kitchen is done where the only air currents are those created by the blower itself.

6

USE AND CARE

BLOWER

The motor is operated by LO/MED/HI/MAX speed control switch. You may change the speed of the motor depending on the amount of grease and smoke you are creating while cooking.

ALWAYS USE THE MAX SETTING WHEN GRILLING.

FILTERS AND DRIP TRAYS

These hoods have reusable metal grease baffles and drip trays. The metal baffles channel grease released by foods on the cooktop into the drip trays. The baffles also help prevent flaming foods on the cooktop from damaging the inside of the hood. For this reason, the baffles must ALWAYS be in place when the hood is used. The grease baffles and drip trays should be cleaned once a month, or as needed.

To clean the grease baffles and drip trays, drain and wipe all excess grease with a dry paper towel. Soak them and then swish them around in hot water and detergent. Don’t use ammonia or ammonia products because they will darken the metal. Do not use abrasives or oven cleaners. Rinse, shake and let them dry before replacing. They may also be cleaned in the dishwasher.

TO REMOVE:

Grasp the baffle knobs and pull them up, forward and out. Grasp the drip tray and carefully lift it up and out of the hood track.

To replace the drip trays:

1.Place and seat the drip tray into the hood track.

2.Slide them left or right until all trays are side-by-side in place in the track.

To replace the baffles:

1.Hold the baffle at the bottom by one of the knobs .

2.Place the other end of the baffle against the inside front of the hood.

3.Slide it up and push the bottom end back until it firmly seats into place.

To remove filters (Euro vent hood only):

1.Push handle towards the rear, then rotate the filters outwards.

2.To replace proceed in reverse order.

USE AND CARE

TO CLEAN HOOD SURFACE

For general care, wipe the outside of the stainless steel with sudsy water or household cleaners such as Fantastic® or Formula 409®, rinse well and dry with clean soft cloth to avoid water marks.

Wipe and dry brushed stainless steel in the same direction as the grain.

Do not use abrasive products.

To remove finger prints and give added shine use spray cleaners such as Stainless Steel Magic® and Shimmer®

LIGHTS

CAUTION:

Before replacing the lamps, switch power off at service panel and lock service panel disconnecting means to prevent power from being switched on accidentally.

NOTE: Turn off the lights and fan. Allow the lights to cool before handling. If new lights do not operate, be sure lights are inserted correctly before calling service.

REPLACE LIGHTS

Remove the damaged light (twist counter clockwise) and replace with a new 120 Volt, 50 Watt (maximum) 50° halogen light made for a GU10 base.

WARNING:

Halogen lamps are constructed of a glass bulb with a pressurized internal filament tube that operates at high temperatures and could unexpectedly shatter. Should the outer bulb break, particles of extremely hot glass could be discharged into the fixture enclosure and/or surrounding environment, thereby creating a risk of personal injury or fire. When replacing the bulb, let the bulb cool, and assure that power to the light has been turned off. Never allow the hot bulb to come into contact with water. DO NOT TOUCH the Light Bulb when in use. They may be hot enough to cause injury.

INFRARED LAMP AND PANEL KIT:

Optional infrared lamp and panel kit can be ordered separately and mounted into your vent hood:

Models available are IR30, IR36 and IR48.

WARNING

To avoid any electrical shock the installation of the IR lamp should be done by a qualified electrician and before starting the installation of the hood.
