" (85 cm)
NOTE: For vented installations, it is recommended that the vent
system be installed before hood is installed.
Before making cutouts, make sure there is proper clearance
within the ceiling or wall for exhaust vent.
1. For vented installations, determine which venting method to
use: roof or wall.
2. Select a flat surface for assembling the range hood. Place
covering over that surface.
Excessive Weight Hazard
Use two or more people to move and install
range hood.
Failure to do so can result in back or other injury.
3. Using 2 or more people, lift the range hood and set it upside
down onto covered surface.

For a grounded, cord-connected range hood:
This range hood must be grounded. In the event of an
electrical short circuit, grounding reduces the risk of electric
shock by providing an escape wire for the electric current.
This range hood is equipped with a cord having a grounding
wire with a grounding plug. The plug must be plugged into
an outlet that is properly installed and grounded.
Improper grounding can result in a risk of
electric shock.
Consult a qualified electrician if the grounding instructions
are not completely understood, or if doubt exists as to
whether the range hood is properly grounded.
Do not use an extension cord. If the power supply cord is too
short, have a qualified electrician install an outlet near the
range hood.
Determine Wiring Hole Location
Cut only one 1 " (3.2 cm) diameter wiring access hole. See
Step 2 for wiring hole location instructions.
1. Determine and clearly mark a vertical centerline on the wall
and cabinet in the area the vent opening will be made.
A. Centerline
2. To wire through top:
Mark a line distance "A" from the left of the centerline on the
underside of the cabinet. Mark the point on this line that is
2" (5.0 cm) from back wall. Drill a 1¼" (3.0 cm) diameter hole
through the cabinet at this point.
A. 12" (30.5 cm) for 30" (76.2 cm) models
12¼" (31.1 cm) for 36" (91.4 cm) models
2" (5.1 cm)
