The manufacturer and/or distributor/reseller further declines all responsibility for injury due to neg-ligence and the warranty of the unit automatically expires due to improper maintenance.
The manufacturer and/or distributor/reseller will not be held responsible for any damages to personal property or real estate or any bodily injuries whether caused directly or indirectly by the range hood.
- Vent system must terminate to the outside (roof or side wall).
- DO NOT terminate the vent system in an at-tic or other enclosed area.
- DO NOT use 4" (10.2 cm) laundry-type wall caps.
- Use metal/aluminum vent only. Rigid metal/ aluminum vent is recommended.
- DO NOT use plastic vent.
- Always keep the duct clean to ensure proper airflow.
- Calculate the following figures before instal-lation:
- Distance from the floor to the ceiling.
- Distance between the floor to the coun-tertop/stove (recommend* 24” to 32").
- Distance between the countertop/stove to the range hood.
- Height of hood and duct cover.
For the most efficient & quiet operation:
- A distance of 24" to 32" is recommended* between stove top and the bottom of range hood.
- It is recommended that the range hood be vented vertically through the roof through 6" (15.2 cm) or bigger round metal/aluminum vent work.
- The size of the vent should be uniform.
- 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 one elbow is used.
- DO NOT install two elbows together.
- The length of vent system and number of elbows should be kept to a minimum to pro-vide efficient performance.
- The vent system must have a damper. If roof or wall cap has a damper, DO NOT use damper (if supplied) on top of the range hood.
- Use silver tape or duct tape to seal all joints in the vent system.
- Use caulking to seal exterior wall or roof opening around the cap.
Due to different ceiling height configurations, rec-ommended height may not be applicable.
- A minimum of 6" round (standard for this range hood) must be used to maintain maximum airflow efficiency.
- Always use rigid type metal/aluminum ducts if available to maximize airflow when connecting to provided duct.
- Please use Duct Run Calculationbelow to compute the total available duct run when using elbows, transitions and caps.
- ALWAYS, when possible, reduce the number or transitions and turns. If long duct run is required, increase duct size from 6” to 7"or 8". If a reducer is used, install a long reducer instead of a pancake reducer. Reducing duct size will restrict airflow and decrease airflow, thus reduce duct size as far away from opening as pos-sible.
- If turns or transitions are required: Install as far away from opening and as far apart, between 2, as possible.
- Minimum mount height between stove top to hood bottom should be no less than 24-inch*.
- Maximum mount height between stove top to hood bottom should be no higher than 32-inch*.
- It is important to install the hood at the proper mounting height. Hoods mounted too low could result in heat damage and fire hazard; while hoods mounted too high will be hard to reach and will loose its performance and efficiency.
- If available, also refer to stove top manufacturer^ height clearance requirements and recommended hood mounting height above range.
* Due to different ceiling height configurations, recommended height may not be applicable.
Minimum Duct Size:
- Round - 6" minimum
Calculating Vent System Length
To calculate the length of the system you need, deduct the equivalent feet for each vent piece used in the system from the recommended maximum duct run.
Duct Run Calculation:
Recommended maximum run
6" or 3-1/4 x 10" duct
Vent pece deduction
Each 90° elbow used
Each 45° elbow used
Each 6" to 3/14 x 10" transition used
Side wall cap with damper
Duct Run Calcuation example:
One roof cap, two 90° elbow, and one 45° elbow used: 9ft + 9ft + 9ft + 5ft = 32ft used.
Deduct 32ft from 50ft, 18ft maximum available
for straight duct run.
- This range hood is factory set for venting through the roof or wall. For non-vented (re-circulating) installations, see Ductless Conversionon Page 7.
- Vent work can terminate either through the roof or wall. To vent through a wall, a 90° elbow is needed.
- NEVER exhaust air or terminate duct work into spaces between walls, crawl spaces, ceiling, attics or garages. All exhaust must be ducted to the outside.
- Use metal/aluminum duct work only.
- Fasten all connections with sheet metal screws and tape all joints with certified Silver Tape or Duct Tape.
- Use caulking to seal exterior wall or roof opening around the cap.
- Ductless conversion is intended for applications where an exhaust duct work is not possible to be installed. When converted, the hood functions as a purifying hood rather than an exhaust hood. Fumes and exhaust from cooking is drawn and filtered by a set of charcoal filters. The air is then purified and re-circulated back within the home.
- We recommend to ALWAYS exhaust air outside of the home by employing existing or installing new duct work, if possible. Only when the exhaust option is not possible should you recourse to converting the hood into a purifying unit.
- When converted to be a "purifying" unit, a set of charcoal filters and an air-diverter are required in addition to its standard aluminum filter set. Available at your local resellers. The standard aluminum filters are intended to capture residue from cooking, the optional charcoal filters help to purify fumes exhausted from cooking, and the optional air-diverter redirects filtered clean air back to the house.
MPORTANT: Observe all governing codes and ordinances.
