General

CFM stands for Cubic feet per Minute of exhausting airflow. It tells us how many cubic feet of air it can absorb within a minute. Choosing a range hood with higher CFM is recommended for intense cooking.

- Better suction (screen on filter hoods will clogged gradually and reduce suction)

ย - Filter-less hood is quieter vs. filter hood even with a much higher CFM

ย - Screen Filters requires much more of a maintenance

Taiwan.

Yes, all our hoods are either ETL or UL certified. ETL and UL are two of the worldโ€™s leading safety certification company.ย ย This insures that our hoods pass all quality and safety requirements.ย 

Range hoods should always be ducted to the outside of the home. While duct free filters trap some of the grease and odors from light cooking, the humidity, smoke and heat will all be re-circulated back into the home. Ducted Range hoods are recommended.

Model PR830BS and Model PW23BS.

Shape: Rectangular

Dimension: Approx. 3 ยผ x 10โ€

Turn on the range hood BEFORE you turn on your flame, also it is recommended to leave your range hood on 3-5 minutes after you finish cooking to remove the rest of the residual fumes. Some of our hoods has a โ€œdelay offโ€ function to help with this.

Duct

No, ducts and various other materials are sold separately.

For best results, keep the duct straight and short. Longer ductwork will result in weaker suction. Always use an external roof or wall cap.

Never use 4โ€ duct or any plastic duct on a range hood installation. The minimum size duct allowed on our range hoods is 6โ€.

Installation

Our instruction booklets recommend 24โ€ โ€“ 30โ€ from the bottom of the range hood to the top of the stove unless otherwise noted for that particular range hood. Overall customers feel 26โ€ is best.

No, Cabinets are optional. Our hoods come with brackets that allows you to install on the wall, just make sure the hood is installed to the stud of the wall for stability. We also carry hoods that donโ€™t require cabinets such as wall mount hoods.

No, they are between an 1/8โ€ and 1/4โ€ smaller. Range hoods usual comes in 30โ€ and 36โ€.

Replacements

Yes, that is possible. Please keep in mind majority of microwave to range hood conversion requires the change of ductwork.

Cleaning

For stainless steel hoods, the surface should be washed regularly with a clean warm cloth along with a mild detergent. Be careful to not use abrasive cloths which may scratch the finish of the hood. Be careful to not use harsh chemical cleaners on color coated hoods. Harsh chemical cleaners or detergents may loosen the paint off the hoods.

Purchase a hood that has an AUTO CLEAN/STEAM CLEAN Feature such as Pacific Brand Range Hoods. With the press of a button the eternal housing will be cleaned with no intense cleaning involved.

We recommend that the customer clean it every time after each meal if there was heavy smoke. Customer should press the auto clean button right after cooking, much easier to remove grease before it dries and hardened.

Troubleshooting

Check to make sure that 6" ducting was used throughout the installation process and make sure that both opening ends has a 6" opening.Please also make sure there is no duct smaller than 6โ€ connected as well as no part of the ductwork squished or folded to fit into something (sometimes ductworks are folded or crimped in order to fit inside of a wall or crawl space). Check to see if there's any obstruction or damage to the ductwork such as rips or holes and if the ducting has been loosened from the range hood.

Some hoods blink or flash to indicate an alert. Please see manual for explanation or feel free to call us at 718-633-3688 or email us at Info@pacifichoods.com
