For vented models:
Do not terminate
the vent system
in an attic or other enclosed area.
Do not use 4" (10.2 cm) laundry-
type wall caps.
Use metal vent only. Rigid metal
vent is recommended.
Do not use
plastic or metal foil vent.
Fle×ible vent is not
recommended.
Flexible vent
creates back pressure that greatly
reduces the hood's performance.
• The size of the vent should be
uniform.
• Use no more than three 90 °
elbows.
Make sure there is a minimum
of 24" (61 cm) of straight
vent
between the elbows if more
than one elbow is used.
Do Not install two elbows
together.
The length of vent system and
number
of elbows should be
kept to a minimum
to provide
efficient
performance.
The vent system must have a
damper. If roof or wall cap has
a damper, Do Not use damper
supplied
with the range hood.
Use duct tape to seal all joints
in the vent system.
• Use caulking to seal exterior wall
or roof opening around the cap.
Note: It is recommended
that the
vent system be installed
before
installing
the hood.
Vent system needed for
installation is not included. 3-1/4" x
