When venting through the soffit, assemble the vent system you
will use over the exhaust collar, but do not attach the vent system
NOTE: The vent system can exhaust out the front of the soffit or
be rotated to exhaust out the side or end of the soffit.

or be rotated to exhaust out the side or end of the soffit.
2. Measure distance "A" (from top of hood to centerline of
6" [15.2 cm] round vent). Mark the distance "A" on soffit.
3. Mark and cut a 6" (15.2 cm) round vent opening.

Before making cutouts, make sure there is proper clearance
within the ceiling or wall for vent fittings.
