NOTE
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 attice space. A buildup
of grease in the
attic could become
a fire hazard.
Use only metal ductwork.
DO NOT USE PLASTIC
DUCT.
Assemble 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.
2. Follow appropriate
directions
below for type of duct run you
install.
a.) Wall Cap Discharge;
(FIG. 7) Use saber saw or keyhole
saw to to cut hole slightly larger than duct size used so that
duct will line up easily with damper/duct connector 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.
