with interior-
mounted

Determine which venting method to use.
Ductwork can extend either through the wall
or roof.
l
The length of ductwork
and number of
elbows should be kept to a minimum to
provide efficient performance.
l
The size of the ductwork
should be
uniform.
l
Do Not install two elbows together.
l
Use duct tape to seal all joints in the
ductwork system.
l
Use caulking
tape to seal the exterior
wall or floor opening around cap.
l
Do Not cut joist or stud. If ductwork
cutout falls over a joist or stud, a
supporting frame must be constructed.
. Flexible
metal ductwork
is Not
recommended.
If it is used, calculate
each foot of flexible ductwork as two feet
of rigid metal ductwork. Flexible elbows
count twice as much as standard elbows.
NOTE: Make sure there is proper clearance
within the wall or floor exhaust duct before
making cutouts.
Recommended
duct length
For either interior-mounted
or exterior-
mounted blower installations,
ductwork
length should not exceed the maximum
lengths listed in the "Maximum length of
duct system" chart. (See Panel C for
interior-mounted
blower; Panel E for
exterior-mounted
blower.)

Maximum
length of ductwork
system
For best performance,
use no more than
three 90" elbows. If more than one elbow is
used, make sure that there is a minimum of
24 inches of straight duct between any two
elbows. Do Not install two elbows
together.
It is recommended that you use
round duct instead of rectangular duct,
especially if elbows are required. If
rectangular duct is required, it should be
transitioned
to 6" round duct as soon as
possible.
Injury Hazard
Use two or more people to move and
install downdraft
vent.
Failure to follow this instruction
can
result in back or other injury.

support leg mounting holes on cabinet floor.
Remove downdraft vent from cutout. Drill
starter holes at each mounting screw
location on cabinet floor. Align top of legs
with pencil marks on face of downdraft vent.
