WARNING - TO REDUCE THE RISK OF FIRE, ELECTRIC SHOCK, OR INJURY TO PERSONS, OBSERVE THE FOLLOWING:

1. Use this unit in the manner intended by the manufacturer.
If you have questions, contact the manufacturer.

2. Before installation, servicing or cleaning unit, switch power off at the service panel and lock the service disconnecting means to prevent power from being switched on accidentally. When the service disconnecting means cannot be locked, securely fasten a prominent warning device, such as a tag, to the service panel.

3. Installation work and electrical wiring must be done by by qualified person(s) in accordance with all applicable codes including fire rated construction.

4. Sufficient air is needed for proper combustion and exhausting of gasses through the flue (chimney) or fuel burning equipment to prevent back drafting. Follow the heating equipment manufacturers guideline and safety standards such as those published by the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA), and the American Society for Heating, Refrigeration and Air Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE), and the local code authorities

5. When cutting or drilling into wall and ceiling, do not damage electrical wiring and other hidden utilities.

6. Ducted fans must always be vented to the outdoors.

7. To reduce the risk of fire, use only metal ductwork.

8. This fan should only be used with the fan speed control provided by ABBAKA for this model. The ventilator must be installed such that the exhaust discharge is 12” minimum from the ground level. However there may be some local codes that do not permit this type of installation. Heavy snowfall may prevent the damper from opening due to snow blockage. Installer should check local codes for outdoor wall installation.

Caution: For general ventilation use only. Do not use to exhaust hazardous or explosive materials and vapors.

Installation Tips

1. For lowest noise operation, place 1 elbow between the range hood and the ventilator. Install an optional ABBAKA Accoustical Duct Silencer.

2. Select an installation location that is free of obstacles such as heating and air conditioning ducts, stand pipes, electrical wiring, etc.

3. Position discharge of the ventilator downward and away from prevailing winds to minimize backdrafts.

4. For best appearance, locate the fan on the rear of the house, below the top of roof line.
