Installation Sheet

Preparing the Range Hood
1. Unpack hood from the carton and confirm that all pieces are present. In addition to the
range hood you should have:
1 - Aluminum Grease Filter
1 - 26 Watt GU24 Lamp
1 - 3-1/4"x 10" Damper
3 - Damper Mounting Screws
4 - #8 Mounting Screws
1 - Wire Compartment Cover and Screw
1 - Instruction/Safety Sheet
NOTE: Some hoods may be shipped with a protective plastic adhered to the range hood. It is
recommended to leave this in place during installation to protect the hood from scratching.
Remove when the installation is complete.
2. Lay the hood flat on a table so the underside is facing you. Use a piece of cardboard to
avoid damaging the table or the hood.
3. Remove the following items from the hood and place in a safe place until needed (Figure 1):
Lamp cover: Squeeze in the sides. The cover is held in place by tension against the tabs
on the hood.
Wire compartment cover: Remove the screw holding it in place.
4. Install the included 26 watt GU24 fluorescent lamp into the lamp holder by lining up the pins
on the lamp base to the socket of the lamp holder and turning the lamp body clockwise until
the lamp snaps into place and is firmly seated in the lamp holder. Install a 4 watt maximum
type C7 (candelabra base) night light (not included) into the side lamp holder and reinstall the
lamp cover by squeezing the cover’s sides and fitting them into the slots on the hood.
Prepare the location for Hood Support
1. If the hood will be installed under cabinets that have a recessed bottom, it will be necessary
to install wood mounting strips (not included) so the hood will mount properly (Figure 2).
2. The thickness of the strips should be the same as the recess of the cabinet and they
should be approximately 2" wide.
3. Install the strips using appropriate length wood screws (not included). Make sure the
strips line up to the keyhole slots of the range hood.

Prepare the Hood for Installation
1. Choose the type of ducting you will require. To ensure the best air and sound performance,
it is recommended that the length of ducting and the number of elbows be kept to a
minimum, the radius of each elbow be as large as possible for the installation, and that
hard ducting be used. Larger duct sizes will reduce noise and airflow restrictions. This
model is equipped to vent either Vertically or Horizontally through a 3-1/4" x 10" duct. It
can be modified to be ductless (re-circulates the air back into the kitchen) with the addition
of a model CF-08S Charcoal Filter (not included) or vented through a 7" round duct with the
addition of a model E-22a or RDC7 Duct Collar (not included) (Figure 3).
2a. Horizontal or Vertical - Remove the square knockout by inserting a screw driver under the
edge and break the tabs holding it in place. Peel back with pliers (Figure 4).
2b. Ductless - Lift up and remove the hood’s vent insert located behind the grill, exposing
the front air slots. Do not use a screwdriver or any other object that could scratch the
hood (Figure 4).
2c. 7" Round - Remove the round knockout located on the top of the hood by inserting a
screw driver under the edge and break the tabs holding it in place. Peel back with pliers
(Figure 4).
3. Determine where the electrical service will enter the hood and remove the appropriate
electrical knockout by inserting a screw driver into the slot and rocking back and forth until the
knockout comes loose (Figure 4).
Installing the Range Hood
1. Once the proper knockout(s) have been removed, either hold the hood up to the installation
location and mark the locations of the ducting (if applicable), electrical, and mounting holes
or mark the locations by measurement.
2. Cut appropriate holes for ducting connection (if applicable) and electrical connection in the
3. For 3-1/4" x 10" vertical or horizontal ducting, install the damper assembly to the hood by
sliding the tabbed section of the damper under the hood body and securing with the two
provided screws. For 7" round ducting, secure either a model E-22A or RCD7 Duct Collar
(not included) to the hood with the three provided screws (Figure 5).
4. Install an approved wire connector to the electrical knockout of the hood and guide the
electrical cable through the hood, allowing at least 6" of wire for connections and tighten.
