Vent Hoods - Cleaning Grease Filters

With careful use and handling, grease filters will last for years. Cleaning the grease filters in range hoods and over-the-range microwave ovens is dependent on what type of cooking is done. For normal use, filters should be cleaned once a month.

To remove the filters:

  1. Slide the filter using the tabs.
  2. Pull the filter down and out.

 

To clean the filters:

  • Soak them and the swish around in hot water and detergent.  Allow the filter to dry completely before putting it back in place. 
  • Light brushing may be used to help remove imbedded soil and dust.
  • Do not use ammonia or ammonia products.
  • Dishwasher cleaning is acceptable, but may discolor the filter.

 

To replace the filters:

  1. Slide the filter into the frame slot(s).
  2. Press up and slide into place.


If there is any doubt as to the type of filter you have, please consult the Owner's Manual. Download a copy of the Owner's Manual.
