INSTALL THE DUCTWORK

(This section for F30WV hoods only. F24WR and F30WR hoods
skip this section and go on to "Install Range Hood" . )
These instructions will follow plans made on Page 2. Start at
the exterior and run ductwork back to the range hood.
For best possible performance, use the shortest possible duct
run and a minimum number of elbows. Do not vent a range
hood into an attic space. A buildup of grease in the attic could
become a fire hazard.
Use only metal ductwork. DO NOT USE PLASTIC DUCT. As-
semble duct run securely so that in case of a grease fire on the
range, the fire will be contained inside metal ductwork.
Tape all duct connections.
1. Follow appropriate directions below for type of duct run you install.
a.) Wall Cap Discharge; (FIG. 7) Use saber saw or keyhole saw to
cut hole slightly larger than duct size used so that duct will line
up easily with damper/duct conector on hood. Install casing strips
if cap will be installed on siding. Attach required amount of duct
to wall cap and run duct back to hood. Fasten cap to wall and
caulk well.
b.) Roof Cap Discharge; (FIG. 8) Cut a hole in roof slightly larger
than duct size being used. Run ductwork down to hood location.
Leave 3/4" of duct projecting above roof surface on high side.
Trim duct parallel to roof pitch and seal all around duct with roof
cement.
Carefully trim shingles and slide back of roof sheet under shingles.
Nail roof sheet to roof under shingles at top two corners and two
sides. Nail sheet directly to roof in four places at bottom.
Using roof cement, seal all nail heads and shingles which were cut or
lifted. Do not seal bottom edge of roof sheet.

vided. (FIG. 11)
