Hood Mounting Instructions

To mount Wood Stone hood, approximate the center line of the hood and place on the oven inline with the center line of the oven (A). Mount hood as far forward on oven as possible, this is achieved by moving the hood so the front edge of lower notch is even with the front of the oven (B). Attach hood to oven top by fastening flange with self-tapping screws (C). Connect ductwork.

Offset Detail

Non-combustible materials (metal studs and cement board) must be used in the area extending from 6 inches beyond each side of the oven doorway and including the area above the oven doorway. See your oven installation manual and facade tutorials for details. Since this is non-combustible construction, the studs may contact the oven. If wood studs or other combustible construction is utilized for other portions of the facade wall, a 1 inch clearance from the oven must be maintained. Back to Flat Wall w/ Facade Extensions & Hood:

Step 2. Trim Detail

To prevent dripping of grease from the hood in to the space between the oven and facade wall, fabricate a custom sheet metal Trim piece as seen in the image at right.

This trim piece should close any gaps between the oven and the wall.

Filter Removal Detail

Proper cleaning of the hood filters is an absolute must. For proper cleaning to be occur, adequate clearance for removal of the filters must be maintained. For hoods supplied by Wood Stone, please follow the hood mounting instructions. This will ensure proper hood placement and plenty of clearance for service access – at least 8 inches.

If using hood purchased from somewhere other than Wood Stone, we recommend a minimum 8″ clearance inside front of the hood and any facade. This will facilitate simple removal and cleaning of the filters, depending on the design of the hood. The hood must be designed to allow for convenient access to the filters and must meet all applicable code requirements. Always submit your venting plans to the appropriate local code officials before proceeding with the installation.

Panel Detail

When the facade is complete, the Storage Box Facade Extension must remain removable. “A” represents the unobstructed path of the panel for removal. “B” represents the width necessary to keep that path clear.

A facade will make for a functional installation as long as the following conditions are met: 1.) Service can be performed from the FRONT of the oven by removing the Storage Box Facade Extension; 2.) There is sufficient airflow from the front-of-the-house; 3.) The radiant control knob is accessible, see Radiant Knob Detail below.

Back To: Flat Wall w/ Facade Extensions & Hood: Step 2.

Airflow Detail

Air flows to the under part of the oven through perforated sections in the upper sections of the sides of the storage box extensions.

This area must be free of obstructions to allow proper airflow. The burners in the gas oven will not operate without sufficient combustion air. To avoid common installation mistakes that effect airflow, please read through the Dos and Don’ts of Oven Venting.

Radiant Knob Detail

The control knob for the radiant flame inside the oven should always be accessible.
