PREPARING THE COUNTERTOP
To reduce the risk of personal injury caused by reaching over a hot appliance,
cabinet storage space located directly above the cooktop should be avoided.
Do not store combustible materials or items adversely affected by heat in cabinet
areas above the appliance.
Follow the instructions regarding minimum safe clearances and installation
location. Failure to do so may result in a fire or safety hazard.
Plan the installation so that all required minimum clearances between the cooktop,
overhead cabinets and adjacent vertical walls are provided. Refer to the cooktop
installation instructions for the minimum dimensions specific to the particular
appliance being installed.
The raised vent system is designed to remove the contaminants and by-products
that result when cooking with gas or electric appliances. The vent system consists
of the vent intake along with a remote blower. The raised vent downdraft systems
are compatible for use with select cooktops, therefore, these instructions offer
specific guidelines for mounting the raised vents behind the cooktops.
IMPORT T T T T ANT
Verify that the raised vent and blower being installed are a matched pair before
beginning the installation. (Part number 5304444802 and E30DD75ESS, E36DD75ESS,
E46DD75ESS, and E48DD75ESS.)
For installation of the raised vent system, provide an opening in the countertop as
shown in the Countertop Preparation section. Position the cutout so all required
minimum clearances are met. Make certain that the minimum flat countertop area
meets or exceeds the combined overall width and overall depth, as shown in
Figures 2, 3 and 4 that follow.
