Customer Question

I have purchased a Jenn-Air 30" Gas Downdraft Cooktop.
With regards ***** ***** the 6" vent faces the rear of the peninsula cabinet. I need to vent to the left to the outside wall.
The installation manual has a "N" dimension of 25-inches for the over-all width, however when we installed the unit it only left about 3-inches to install a 6" 90 degree vent.
Should the peninsula width be greater than 26 inches? Exactly is the minimum interior width to install the unit and a 90 degree elbow for a horizontal side wall vent?

Model JGD3430BS00I think I found the answer in the instruction. It appears we need to rotate the blower 90-degrees, down and then extend the venting to the outside wall.Daryle
