Preparing to install

Please read this instruction manual carefully in order to obtain the best results from the use of the wall canopy.

If you need any technical help or would like more information about our products, please do not hesitate to contact your local Fisher & Paykel retailer.

Preparing the wall canopy for installation
  • Before installing your wall canopy:
  • Please read the instructions carefully.
  • Unpack the canopy and check that all functions are working.
  • Ensure that the voltage (V) and the frequency (Hz) indicated on the serial plate match the voltage and frequency at the installation site.
  • Check that the area behind the installation surface to be drilled is clear of any electrical cables or pipes, etc.
  • The stainless steel and glass surfaces of the canopy are very easily damaged during installation if grazed or knocked by tools. Please take care to protect the surfaces during installation.
  • Protect the cooktop surface below with cardboard, or the like, to prevent damage occurring whilst the wall canopy is being installed above.

The manufacturer shall not be liable for failure to observe all safety regulations in force for the correct and normal operation of electrical parts.

Ducting options

Recirculation
To recirculate your wall canopy, please purchase a recirculation kit (part no. 791820). The recirculation kit is required to channel the air out through the side-vents at the top of the flue.

A ducting hole is not required in the wall or ceiling if a recirculation kit is fitted.

Ducting

For ducted installation, it is recommended that you use 150 mm diameter, rigid or semi-rigid ducting. This will require a 160 mm (min) round hole in the ceiling, which the decorative chimney will cover. Care should be taken to align the canopy with the decorative chimney allowing sufficient clearance to accommodate the ducting.

For optimal efficiency, use smooth-wall, solid galvanized or plastic ducting for reduced noise and increased airflow. Flexible ducting should only be used as a last resort (ie in difficult installations) and if used, ensure that it is pulled tight.

The smoother, straighter and shorter the ducting the quieter and more efficient the wall canopy will perform.

Preparing to install

All ducting must comply with local requirements and building codes.
