Hood Cleaning – M Line Models
Wipe down the interior and exterior of the hood as needed with a soft cloth and warm soapy water (liquid dish detergent is acceptable). Do not use acids, abrasives, strong detergents, solvents, or scouring pads. Stainless steel should be treated with a quality stainless steel cleaner such as Stainless Steel Magic® (Vent-A-Hood® part number SS64). Follow all label instructions. Do not polish across the grain or in circles.
WARNING: To reduce the risk of personal injury, be sure the blower is turned off before removing filters.
Vent-A-Hood® models that use interior blower units have stainless steel baffle filters located inside the hood. The filters collect oil/grease from cooking and need to be removed and cleaned on a regular basis. To remove the filter, grasp the knob, push back and down, and then pull the filter forward. Soak the filter(s) in warm soapy water or wash in a dishwasher. To reinstall the filters, reverse the procedure used to remove the filters.
Note: Filter elements cannot always collect 100% of the grease from cooking. Some grease may collect behind the filter, on the blower motor, or in the duct pipe.
