For your kitchen ventilation system to work properly, it is important to clean the blower housing or filters regularly. Please review the procedure for specific your model. Vent-A-Hood® Range Hoods will be equipped with the Magic Lung® blower system, the Power Lung™ K-Series blower system (V-Line and ARS Duct Free), Remote Blower System RM1000/RM1500, or Budget Line (M Series) M600/M1200 interior blower system. This page is for the Budget Line (M Series) M600/M1200 interior blower system.


Hood Cleaning – Budget Line (M Series) Models

Section A - Hood Canopy

    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.

Section B - Hood Filters

    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.
