WARNING: To reduce the risk of fire, electric shock, or injury to persons, read the IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS, located inyour appliance’s Owner’s Manual, before operating this appliance.Electrical Requirements:
- A 120 V, 60 Hz, AC only, 15 A, fused electrical circuit is required.
- If the house has aluminum wiring, follow the procedure below:
Connect the aluminum wiring using special connectors and/or tools designed and UL listed for joining copper to aluminum.Follow the electrical connector manufacturer’s recommended procedure. Aluminum/copper connection must conform with local codes and industry accepted wiring practices.
IMPORTANT:Minimum distance “X”: 24″ (61.0 cm) to the electric cooking surface and 30″ (76.2 cm) to the gas cooking surface.Suggested maximum distance “X”: 36″ (91.4 cm).
- The vent system must terminate to the outdoors.
- Do not terminate the vent system in an attic or other enclosed area.
- Do not use a 4″ (10.2 cm) laundry-type wall cap.
- Use metal vent only. A rigid metal vent is recommended.
- The length of the vent system and the number of elbows should be kept to a minimum to provide efficient performance.
For the most efficient and quiet operation:
- Use no more than three 90° elbows.
- Make sure there is a minimum of 24″ (61.0 cm) of straight vent between the elbows if more than 1 elbow is used.
- Do not install 2 elbows together.
- Use clamps to seal all joints in the vent system.
- The vent system must have a damper. If the roof or wall cap has a damper, do not use a damper supplied with the range hood.
- Use caulking to seal the exterior wall or roof opening around the cap.
- The size of the vent should be uniform.
Venting MethodsThis range hood is factory set for venting through the roof or wall.A 3¹⁄4″ x 10″ (8.3 cm x 25.4 cm) rectangular vent system is needed for installation (not included). The hood exhaust opening is 3¹⁄4″ x 10″ (8.3 cm x 25.4 cm). The vent system can terminate either through the roof or wall. To vent out of the top of the range hood and through a wall, a 90° elbow is needed. See the “Install Range Hood” section of your Owner’s Manual for details of installing the damper.NOTE: Flexible vent is not recommended. A flexible vent creates backpressure and air turbulence that greatly reduce performance.Rear dischargeThis range hood can be vented directly out the back using the 3¹⁄4″ x 10″ (8.3 cm x 25.4 cm) rectangular damper (supplied) along with a 3¹⁄4″ x 10″ (8.3 cm x 25.4 cm) rectangular vent system (not supplied). See the “Install Range Hood” section of your Owner’s Manual for details of installing the damper.

Calculating Vent System LengthTo calculate the length of the system you need, add the equivalent feet (meters) for each vent piece used in the system.3¹⁄4″ x 10″ (8.3 cm x 25.4 cm) Vent System
|3¹⁄4″ x 10″ (8.3 cm x 25.4 cm) 90° elbow||5.0 ft (1.5 m)|
|3¹⁄4″ x 10″ (8.3 cm x 25.4 cm) flat elbow||12.0 ft (3.7 m)|
|3¹⁄4″ x 10″ (8.3 cm x 25.4 cm) wall cap||0.0 ft (0.0 m)|
Example vent system
|Maximum Recommended Length||= 35 ft (10.7 m)|
|1 – 90° elbow||= 5.0 ft (1.5 m)|
|8 ft (2.4 m) straight||= 8.0 ft (2.4 m)|
|1 – wall cap||= 0.0 ft (0.0 m)|
|Length of 3¹⁄4″ x 10″ (8.3 cm x 25.4 cm) system||= 13.0 ft (3.9 m)|
