General information

NOTE: If you need to install ducts, note that the total duct length of 3 ¼ x 10 rectangular or 6 diameter round duct should not exceed 140 equivalent feet.
Outside ventilation requires a HOOD EXHAUST DUCT. Read the following carefully.
NOTE: It is important that venting be installed using the most direct route and with as few elbows as possible. This ensures clear venting of exhaust and helps prevent blockages. Also, make sure dampers swing freely and nothing is blocking the ducts.
Exhaust connection:
The hood exhaust has been designed to mate with a standard 3 ¼ x 10 rectangular duct.
If a round duct is required, a rectangular-to-round transition adaptor must be used. Do not use less than a 6 diameter duct.

Maximum duct length:
For satisfactory air movement, the total duct length of 3 ¼ x 10 rectangular or 6 diameter round duct should not exceed 140 equivalent feet.
Elbows, transitions, wall and roof caps, etc., present additional resistance to airflow and are
equivalent to a section of straight duct which is longer than their actual physical size. When calculating the total duct length, add the equivalent lengths of all transitions and adaptors plus the length of all straight duct sections. The chart below shows you how to calculate total equivalent ductwork length using the approximate feet of equivalent length of some typical ducts.

Your cabinets may have decorative trim that interferes with the microwave installation. Remove the decorative trim to install the microwave properly and to make it level.
THE MICROWAVE MUST BE LEVEL.
Use a level to make sure the cabinet bottom is level. If the cabinets have a front overhang only, with no back or side frame, install the mounting plate down the same distance as the front overhang depth. This will keep the microwave level.
1. Measure the inside depth of the front overhang. 2. Draw a horizontal line on the back wall an equal
distance below the cabinet bottom as the inside depth of the front overhang. 3. For this type of installation with front overhang only, align the mounting tabs with this horizontal line, not touching the cabinet bottom as described in Step D.
