Injury Hazard
To eliminate
the risk of burns or fire,
avoid installing
cabinet storage above
the cooking
surface.
If cabinets
are
already installed,
avoid the use of
cabinets
while cooktop
is in use.
Reaching
over a heated cooking
surface could result in a serious
burn.
Use two or more people to move and
install downdraft
vent.
Failure to follow these instructions
can
result in back or other injury.
Important:
Observe all governing
codes
and ordinances.
Proper installation
is your responsibility.
Make sure you have everything
necessary
for correct installation.
It is the responsibility
of the installer to comply with the installation
clearances specified on the model/serial
rating plate. The model/serial
rating plate is
located on the front of the downdraft vent
above the wiring box cover.
Check location
where downdraft vent will
be installed. The location should be away
from strong draft areas, such as windows,
doors and strong heating vents or fans.
Before making countertop cutout, check that
downdraft vent and cooktop location will
clear cabinet walls, backsplash, and rear
wall studs inside cabinet.
ALL OPENINGS
IN THE WALL OR
FLOOR WHERE RETRACTABLE
DOWNDRAFT
VENT IS TO BE
INSTALLED
MUST BE SEALED.
Electrical
ground
is required. See
"Electrical requirements,"
Panel B.
When installing retractable downdraft vent,
the cabinet drawer will need to be removed
and the drawer front installed permanently
to cabinet.
30" min. base cabinet
is required. If
cabinet has a drawer, 3-l/2" depth
clearance from the countertop to the top of
the drawer (or other obstruction
in the base
cabinet) is required.
Note: Downdraft vent is installed directly
behind the cooktop. Install downdraft vent
first.
Downdraft
vent is not approved
for use
in mobile homes.
Cabinet construction:
Downdraft vent is
designed for use in a cabinet with a depth of
24". The maximum depth of the overhead
cabinet is 13". Overhead cabinets installed
at either side of the downdraft vent must be
18" above the cooking surface. See cook-top
Installation
Instructions for the minimum
distance between the front edge of the
countertop and front edge of cooktop. The
minimum horizontal distance between the
overhead cabinets is the same as the width
of the installed downdraft vent.
When installing a 36" retractable downdraft
vent with three "Create-A-Cook-top"
modules, the optional support must be
installed on the front of the downdraft vent.
See installation steps for details.
