Calm starting and speed regulation performance, wide and smooth speed regulation range, strong overload capacity, and little influence by electromagnetic interference; DC motor has good starting characteristics and speed regulation characteristics; The Torque of the DC motor is relatively large; Maintenance is cheaper; Compared with AC, the DC motor is more energy-saving and environmentally friendly.


7. What is the advantage of centrifugal motors?

They create higher pressure differentials to push air out, therefore creating a higher cfm. 


8. My machine comes with a 3 prong power plug but I don't have a power outlet.

Simply cut the plug and peel off the rubber around the three copper wire exposed, connect them to the main power source using the crimping cap provided. Match the color of the wires. If you don't have a ground wire, just put the crimping cap on by itself.

Find a 3 prong connector of unused appliance or power strip, cut the connector and connect to the machine's 3 copper wires using the crimping cap provided. Then plug the 3 prong connector into the power outlet.


10. I feel my range hood venting power is not as strong as before.

Cleaning your range hood is a key to maintain its performance, as the grease builds up inside the machine, the venting space gets limited, decreasing its efficiency.

If there is a big change in the venting power, check whether your machine's damper is stuck. It is the flapping 2 piece metal placed between the top venting opening and the ducting. Sometimes it won't fully open up due to the grease buildup. Clean it or remove it will solve the problem.


11. My machine has power but the control is not responding.

On certain model, there is a lock function which allows the machine to be cleaned without triggering control. Simply press and hold the power button for 5 seconds to unlock.


12. Why is my range hood appears to be white when I order the stainless steel color version?

There is a layer of white-greyish protective film covering brand new machines, simply peel it off before installation.


13. Why do I feel the suction power is not strong enough?

The cfm number listed for each machine is measured under ideal condition. The size of your ducting, the length of your ducting, the number of elbows of your ducting greatly affects the efficiency of the range hood. For maximum cfm, contacting our experienced technician to make changes to your current ducting work might be required.
