Installing the Range Hood
CAUTION: MAKE SURE POWER IS SWITCHED OFF AT SERVICE PANEL
BEFORE STARTING INSTALLATION.
CAUTION:WHEN CUTTING OR DRILLING INTO WALL DO NOT DAMAGE
ELECTRICAL WIRING AND OTHER HIDDEN UTILITIES.
1. Refer to the mounting hole drawing provided with the unit. Locate and mark the upper
keyhole positions on the wall. If installing onto drywall, drill holes into wall using a
3/16" drill bit. Install wall anchors into the drilled holes (one for each hole). Install (2)
provided #6 x 1" screws, leaving a 1/8" gap between the screw head and the wall.
If installing into other material (brick, cement, plaster, etc.) choose an appropriate
fastner capable of supporting the weight of the hood. Line up the keyholes in the
hood with the screws and position in place. Hang the hood over the keyhole anchors
and verify that the hood is centered, plum and level (Figure 1).
2. With the hood hanging in place from the top screws, mark the location of the
lower holes. If installing onto drywall, remove the hood and drill holes into wall using
a 3/16" drill bit. Install wall anchors into the drilled holes (one for each hole). If install-
ing into other material (brick, cement, plaster, etc.) choose an appropriate fastner ca-
pable of supporting the weight of the hood. Hang the hood over the keyhole anchors
and verify that the hood is centered, level and the bottom holes line up with the
anchors. Install the provided #6 x 1" screws into the anchors (Figure 2). Tighten all
screws completely and reinstall the Grease ﬁlters.
