N. Height top of cooking surface to base of product          min. 26” (660) – max. recommended 36” (915)

This ventilation hood must be installed no lower than the minimum height indicated in the table above. Minimum installation height may be greater if required by the cooktop manufacturer or safety and warning section of this user guide. Installation at the minimum height will improve the efficiency of capturing cooking odors, grease and smoke. Installation at the maximum height improves user ergonomics by offering increased head room.

  • To reduce the risk of fire, use only metal ductwork. Do not use flexible plastic ducting
  • To reduce risk of fire and to properly exhaust air, be sure to duct air outside – do not vent exhaust air into spaces within walls or ceilings or into attics, crawl spaces, or garages.To reduce risk of fire and to property exhaust air, be sure to duct air outside - do not vent exhaust air into spaces within walls or ceilings or into attics, crawl spaces or garages.

Venting options

Attention should be given to ensure that any applicable regulations concerning the discharge of exhaust air are fulfilled.

The ventilation hood can be installed to operate with the exhaust air ducted externally from the kitchen, or installed to operate with the exhaust air recirculating within the kitchen.

Ducted

For ducted installation it is recommended that 6” (152 mm) diameter, rigid or semi-rigid ducting is used. This will require a 6 5/16” (160 mm) (min) round hole in the ceiling or wall. Care should be taken to position the hole correctly.

For optimal efficiency use the shortest and straightest duct route possible and use rigid or semi-rigid ducting for reduced noise and increased airflow. Flexible metal ducting should only be used as a last resort (ie in difficult installations) and if used ensure that it is straight and smooth and extended as much as possible.

Recirculating

To enable the product to operate with the air recirculating, please purchase a recirculation diverter and carbon filters or recirculation kit (refer to the ‘Parts and accessories’ section). This recirculation diverter is required to channel the air out the side vents at the top of the chimney and the carbon filters are required to remove odors.

A ducting hole is not required in the wall or ceiling if the ventilation hood is installed to operate with exhaust air recirculating.
  • This product is heavy and requires two persons for installation.

  • Installation work and electrical wiring must be done by qualified person(s) in accordance with all applicable codes and standards.

Wear gloves to protect against sharp edges.

The manufacturer is not liable for any damage caused by not following these instructions.

Installation

1. Preparing for installation:

Before installing your ventilation hood:

  • Please read the instructions carefully.
  • Unpack the ventilation hood.
  • Ensure the voltage (V) and the frequency (Hz) indicated on the serial plate match the voltage and frequency of the installation site.
  • Check that the area behind the installation surface to be drilled is clear of any electrical cables or pipes etc
  • The ventilation hood surfaces can be damaged during installation if grazed or knocked by tools. Please take care to protect the surfaces during installation.
  • Protect the cooktop surface with cardboard, or the like, to prevent damage occurring whilst the ventilation hood is being installed above.
  • Temporarily mark the height of the bottom of the ventilation hood and the center of the cooktop on the wall according to the information given in the ‘Installation instructions – Height of ventilation hood’ section.
  • The wall used for mounting the ventilation hood should have sufficient strength and a flat surface.

 

2. Attach chimney brackets and ventilation hood mounting screws to the wall

  • Attach the chimney bracket and upper chimney bracket (if using the upper chimney) in the locations shown in Fig.2 and Fig.3. Use the 1 3/16” (30 mm) screws (and expansion plugs if attaching to masonry).
  • Attach the upper ventilation hood mounting screws in the locations shown in Fig.2 and Fig.3. Using the 1 3/16” (30 mm) screws (and expansion plugs if attaching to masonry). Ensure that there is a 1/16” (2 mm) gap between the screw head and the wall Fig.1.

3. Attach ducting adapter and power connection box to the ventilation hood

  • Place the ducting adapter onto the ventilation hood and screw it in place using ” (10 mm) screws.
  • Place the power connection box onto the ventilation hood and screw it in place using ” (10 mm) screws.
  • Follow wiring instructions described in the ‘Electrical connection’ section.

4. Wall mounting 

  • Remove the filters – pull the relative catch and tilt the filter downwards until it disengages from the supports.
Screen Shot 2018-01-05 at 12.37.11 PM.png
  • Hang the ventilation hood off the upper ventilation hood mounting screws with 1/16” (2 mm) gap. Hang off the keyhole attachment points on the back of the ventilation hood then tighten the screws.

Screen Shot 2018-01-05 at 12.39.52 PM.png
  • Attach the lower ventilation hood mounting screws to fix the ventilation hood to the wall.
  • Refit the filters.

 

Electrical wiring must be done by qualified person(s) in accordance with all applicable codes and standards and the unit must be grounded.

5. Electrical connection

  • Run three wires, two for the power supply and one for the ground wire, from the power connection box on the ventilation hood to a power connection point near the installation.
  • Open the power connection box on the ventilation hood and secure the power conductor with a cULus listed strain relief (not included).
  • Connect the power conductors to the conductors for the ventilation hood, black to black and white to white.
  • Connect the grounding wire (green or bare) to the ground conductor (green) of the ventilation hood power connection box.
  • Secure all the connections with cULus listed wire nuts.
  • Replace the power connection box cover.
