3 ELECTRICAL GROUNDING
This appliance must be grounded. This oven is equipped with a
cord having a grounding wire with a grounding plug. It must be
plugged into a wall receptacle that is properly installed and
grounded in accordance with the National Electrical Code and
local codes and ordinances. In the event of an electrical short
circuit, grounding reduces risk of electric shock by providing an
escape wire for the electric current.
WARNING - Improper use of the grounding plug can result in a
risk of electric shock.
The oven is equipped with a 3-prong grounding plug. DO NOT
UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES CUT OR REMOVE THE
GROUNDING PIN FROM THE PLUG.
The Power Supply Cord and plug must be connected to a sep-
arate 120 Volt AC, 60 Hz, 15 Amp, or more branch circuit, sin-
gle grounded receptacle. The receptacle should be located
inside the cabinet directly above the Microwave Oven mounting
location as shown in Figure 2.
1. If you have any questions about the grounding or electrical
instructions, consult a qualified electrician or serviceperson.
2. Neither Electrolux nor the dealer can accept any liability for
damage to the oven or personal injury resulting from failure
to observe the correct electrical connection procedures.
4 HOOD EXHAUST DUCT
When the hood is vented to the outside, a hood exhaust duct is
required. All ductwork must be metal; absolutely do not use
plastic duct. Check that all connections are made securely.
Please read the following carefully:
Exhaust connection: The hood exhaust has been designed to
connect to a standard 3-1/4" X 10" rectangular duct. If round
duct is required, a rectangular-to-round adapter must be used.
Rear exhaust: If a rear or horizontal exhaust is to be used, care
should be taken to align the exhaust with the space between the
studs, or wall should be prepared at the time it is constructed by
leaving enough space between wall studs to accommodate
Maximum duct length: For satisfactory air movement, the total
duct length of 3-1/4" X 10" rectangular or 6" diameter round duct
should not exceed 140 feet.
Elbows, adapters, wall caps, roof caps, etc. present additional
resistance to air flow and are equivalent to a section of straight
duct which is longer than their actual physical size. When calcu-
lating the total length, add the equivalent lengths of all transi-
tions and adapters plus the length of all straight duct sections.
Figure 3 shows the approximate feet of equivalent length of
some typical ductwork parts. Use the values in parentheses for
calculating air flow resistance equivalent, which should total
less than 140 feet.
