Ducting Option Specifications

Vent system MUST terminate outside through roof or wall; do NOT

terminate into attic or other enclosed area.

Exhaust Duct Required – 3-1/4" x 10" rectangular with 35' maximum

vent length or 7" round with 50' maximum vent length. Refer

to Product Installation Guide on web for calculations needed to

determine total duct length.

Installation of 7" Round Duct requires use of optional 7" Round

Transition Duct (PN # 5304487139) and can only be vented vertically.

To provide efficient performance, length of vent system and number

of elbows should be kept to minimum. Flexible vent greatly reduces

performance and is NOT recommended.

Use 3-1/4" x 10" rectangular metal vent only – rigid metal vent

recommended; plastic or metal foil vent NOT recommended.

For cold weather installation, additional backdraft damper and thermal

break should be installed. Thermal break will minimize conduction of

outside temperatures as part of the vent system with damper on cold

air side of break, as close as possible to where vent system enters

heated portion of house.

Refer to Product Installation Guide on web for detailed vent system

preparation instructions.

Note: For planning purposes only. Refer to Product Installation Guide

on the web at frigidaire.com for detailed instructions.
