Location Requirements

IMPORTANT: Observe all governing codes and ordinances.
It is the installer's responsibility to comply with installation
clearances specified on the model/serial rating plate. The
model/serial rating plate is located inside the range hood on
the rear wall.
Range hood location should be away from strong draft areas,
such as windows, doors and strong heating vents.
Cabinet opening dimensions that are shown must be used.
Given dimensions provide minimum clearance. Consult your
cooktop/range manufacturer installation instructions before
making any cutouts.
Grounded electrical outlet is required. See "Electrical
Requirements" section.
The hood is factory set for vented installations. For
recirculating installations, Recirculation Kit Part Number
4396565, including vent cover and 2 charcoal filters, is
available from your dealer.
All openings in ceiling and wall where range hood will be
installed must be sealed.
