Install the UC-PS38 in 7 Steps:
Under Cabinet Range Hoods
1. Unboxing and Checking Components
Start by unboxing your Hauslane UC-PS38 range hood.
In the box, you will find the hood itself, a user's manual, a microfiber cloth with the Hauslane logo, silver tape for duct connection, a six-inch duct adapter, and other essential accessories. The box also includes a template with double adhesive to guide your installation process.
2. Prepare the Installation Area
Figure out where you will install the range hood.
Ideally, you should have a plug close to this area so you can easily connect to power. Lay out all the components on a counter or table to keep everything within easy reach.
Inspect the range hood and try out the features to make sure everything works. The unit includes powerful lights and a robust metal construction. Ensure all the screws are adequately tightened. Carefully inspect the power cord, fans, and air paths to ensure before beginning the installation process.
3. Get Ready for Installation
If you’re doing the installation yourself, you may want to remove any excess weight to make the process easier.This includes the magnetic tray and lights.
Ensure you have a screwdriver and an extension bit on hand. You will need these to remove the back screws and the bottom plate, and to secure the hood to your cabinet. Be careful while handling the internal components.
4. Mark and Cut the Required Holes
Using the template provided, mark where you will need to cut for the duct and power outlet.
Protect your stove with plywood and cardboard to prevent accidental damage during drilling. Once your markings are set, cut out the necessary holes using a hole saw blade. Remember to tape the cabinet before drilling to prevent any damage.
5. Assemble and Mount the Range Hood
With the holes in place, assemble the duct adapter with the hood, ensuring the sealing grommet is correctly positioned for an airtight seal.
Lift the hood and align it with the cut-out holes in your cabinet. Thread the power cord through the hole. If you're doing this alone, use wooden supports to hold up the hood. Once in place, secure the range hood with screws and washers.
Before permanently fixing it in place, plug in the range hood and test its operations. Ensure it's functioning correctly at all levels. Once you're satisfied, go ahead and mount the hood properly.
6. Re-assemble the Removed Parts
You can now reinstall the components you had initially removed.
Start by putting back the display, followed by the lights and the magnetic tray.
7. Test Your New Range Hood
Ensure the hood is working correctly by turning it on and testing each function.
