Installing the Range Hood:
Range hood distance from the cook top.
Range hoods need to be correctly positioned in the center above a stove to draw away smoke and fumes effectively. We often recommend a distance between the countertop or burners and the hood to be min 24" for electrical and min. 30" for gas burners. For you own safety DO NOT LOWER THE RANGE HOOD LESS THAN 30" FROM A GAS COOKTOP. Measure that distance, starting from the stovetop and moving upward on the wall behind the stove. Place a piece of masking tape on the wall and make a pencil mark on the tape at the correct location.
Make a level line.
Use the bubble level. Lay it against the wall and evenly position it with the height of the mark. Then apply a horizontal line of masking tape or low-tack painter's tape at the height of the mark; the length of the tape line needs to equal the width of the range hood. This tape should be removable and protects the wall from permanent measurement marks. Now lay the bubble level in place and make a series of marks to the width of the range hood. Use a straight edge along these level marks and draw a pencil line.
Make vertical lines to position the range hood.
Use a straight-edge framing square or a plumb-bob to find the true vertical position of the range hood. Many range hoods have square sides, and this line will set the position of the range hood side edge. Again, use painter's tape in the general location and make your final marks and lines with a pencil.
Locate the studs.
Range hoods are very heavy and must be well-fastened to the wall studs. Do not hang a range hood on the drywall or plaster alone. Use the stud locator to find the studs and make marks for the screws. Use the drill bit (smaller than the screw shaft) and pre-drill screw holes. Don't use a drill bit that is too large; this could cause the range hood to pull away from the wall and cause injury. Use 2x4 wood across the studs for your range hood support if necessary, click on the diagram below for more info:
6" Vent installation.
This range hood requires 6" diameter exhaust opening for best performance. The exhaust hole of the fan is located 15" above the bottom of the hood . Install the 6" opening min. 85-90" from the floor. Keep the opening as close as possible ot the center above the stove. Avoid 90 degree elbows and exhaust through the closest wall or roof. If you have smaller exhaust( 4",5" dia.), you will need to use duct reducer which will lower the CFM by 10-20%, but the hood will still work fine. If your exhaust opening is bigger, your range hood will perform better. You will need to use different type reducer 6"-8", or 6" - 7"..etc. Charcoal-filter or recirculated range hoods do not require external vents.
Stainless steel cover ( flue) installation- Vaulted & Drop ceilings
This range hood comes with adjustable cover, that covers ceilings from 8' to 9'. If you have a bulkhead ( drop ceiling) and your ceiling height is less than 8', you most likely will need to cut the cover at your local metal shop, or using angle grinder. To finish it, put a molding around the edge. It you have vaulted ceiling, again you will have to cut the cover on the spot, we do not offer kits that can fill up the gap.
Our range hoods require external power for the fan and light to operate. All hoods come with approximately 3 feet of wire ending with PLUG for standard PLUG IN connection and require 120v receptacle ( you could cut the plug for hardwire connection if necessary). You may need to call in a licensed electrician to perform the work. Install the standard 110v plug min. 85-90" from the floor , 2" left or right from the center above the stove.
Mounting the range hood.
It is a good idea to get someone to help lift the range hood into place. Cut some supporting blocks ahead of time and use them to assist in bracing the range hood while you set it in place. When the range hood is well-supported and perfectly positioned, use screws to fasten it into the wall. Most range hoods come with 2 main mounting brackets, but you could put additional screws from the inside the hood for additional support.. Remove the painter's masking tape and temporary supports at the end.
