Vent-A-Hood® Operating Instructions


Premier Magic Lung® (B-Series & T-Series Blower) Models:

    Red Switch- This switch operates a two speed motor. This two speed motor allows the user to switch the hood to “LOW” (position I) for quieter operation during light cooking, while the “HIGH” (position II) setting delivers the full power of the Magic Lung® blower unit. If the two speed motor is turned to “LOW”, the heat sensor (SensaSource®) monitors cooking activity. If the heat reaches an unacceptable level inside the hood, or a range fire occurs, the two speed motor will switch from “LOW” to full power automatically. The sensor will return the motor to the “LOW” level when the heat subsides or the hood may be turned off manually (middle position).

    Red Switch

    White Switch- This switch controls the lights. “LOW” level lighting (position I) is 25 watts per bulb, “HIGH” level lighting (position II) is 50 watts per bulb. Off is in the middle position.

    White Switch

    Black Switch- This switch operates a single speed motor. The single speed motor is either off or on, and is not controlled by the SensaSource® heat sensor.

    Black Switch

    Note: The location of the switches on the hood corresponds to the location of the motors in the hood (i.e. left switch operates left motor, etc. ) except for a T400H Island 1200 CFM Cluster Blower, which is diagrammed below.

    Fluorescent Lights

    On fluorescent light models, motors are switched independent from one another, with the exception of island hoods which are switched in pairs of motors. When using the hood, the user should generally start with one motor, and then turn on additional motors as required.

    White Switch- This switch controls the light(s).

    White Switch

    Black Switch- This switch operates a single speed motor or a pair of single speed motors in an Island hood.

    Black Switch

    Note: The location of the switches in the hood corresponds to the location of the motors in the hood (i.e. left switch operates left motor, etc.) except for a T400 Island Cluster Blower, which is diagrammed below.


Premium Power Lung (K250 Blower) Models

    When using the hood, the user should generally start with the hood on the low setting, and switch to the high setting as required.

    Red Switch- This switch operates the two speed motor. This two speed motor allows the user to switch the hood to “LOW” (position I) for quieter operation during light cooking, while the “HIGH” (position II) setting delivers the full power of the Magic Lung® blower unit. If the two speed motor is turned to “LOW”, the heat sensor (SensaSource) monitors cooking activity. If the heat reaches an unacceptable level inside the hood or a range fire occurs, the two speed motor will switch from “LOW” to full power automatically. The sensor will return the motor to the “LOW” level when the heat subsides or the hood may be turned off manually (middle position).

    Red Switch

    White Switch- This switch operates the lights. “LOW” level lighting (position I) is 25 watts per bulb, “HIGH” level lighting (position II) is 50 watts per bulb. Off is in the middle position.


Remote Blower System (RM1000 & RM1500) Models

    On external blower models, the user should generally start on the lowest setting and then increase speed as required. The light switch operates halogen lights low, off, or high, and fluorescent lights off or on.

    Note: In order to properly capture the maximum amount of oil/grease from cooking, the motor blower should be operated at the higher setting – lower speeds may lower the noise level, but may not create sufficient air flow and pressure through the filter to liquefy oil/grease properly.
