Description of functions
The ventilation system offers the
following modes of operation:
Air venting with external blower
Air venting with internal blower
The external blower must be installed
outside the room at a location of your
choosing.
A blower that is integrated into the
ventilation system removes any cooking
vapors. The air is guided though the
baffle filters and cleaned. Then the air
is directed outside.
The external blower is connected to the
ventilation system by a control cable
and is operated via the control panel of
the ventilation system.
Air recirculation mode
The air that is drawn in is cleaned by
the baffle filters and then by an
OdorFree charcoal filter. The air is
returned to the kitchen through opening
on the top of the range hood.
In air recirculation mode, please
ensure that the OdorFree charcoal
filters are in place; see "Cleaning
and Care".

Operation
Turning the light on/off
The overhead LED ClearView lighting
and the blower can be turned on and
off separately.
Turning the blower on/off
^ Turn the blower switch to "1" to turn
the blower on and to "0" to turn the
blower off.
Selecting the blower power
level
Select one of the four power levels
according to the intensity of the
cooking vapors.
Typically, levels "1" to "3" are sufficient
for normal cooking needs.
Intensive level
Use the intensive setting "IS" for short
periods of time when frying or cooking
food with strong vapors and odors.
Always turn the ventilation system
on when cooking.
When using a gas range regardless
of the cooktop setting, use the
following power levels:
Ventilation system with blower DRIB
XL or DREB XL (700 cfm):
20 kW or more: min. Level 2
31 kW or more: min. Level 3
Ventilation system with blower DRIB
XXL or DREB XXL (1100 cfm):
31 kW or more: min. Level 2
40 kW or more: min. Level 3
The ventilation system is equipped
with a temperature sensor
(Auto-vent safety sensor). If an
insufficient power level was
selected, the ventilation system
temporarily switches to the intensive
setting "IS". This also happens when
the ventilation system is off.
After cooking
If the kitchen is still full of cooking
vapors after you have finished cooking,
we recommend leaving the ventilation
system on for approx. 10 minutes.
^ Then turn the system off.
11
Cleaning and Care
,WARNING
TO REDUCE THE RISK OF
FIRE, ELECTRIC SHOCK, OR
INJURY TO PERSONS,
OBSERVE THE FOLLOWING:
Before cleaning or servicing the

Before installation read the
information in the "Dimensions" and
"Important Safety Instruction"
chapters.
Under certain conditions, there is a
danger of poisonous fumes by when
the ventilation system and a furnace
drawing interior air run at the same
time.
Installation instructions
The individual installation steps are
described in the included Installation
diagram.
Protective film
(stainless steel units)
The casing is covered with a protective
film to prevent scratching during
transport.
Please peel off the film before installing
the casing parts. It can be removed
without tools.

Air venting
,WARNING
Danger of toxic fumes.
Gas cooking appliances release
carbon monoxide that can be
harmful or fatal if inhaled.
To reduce the risk of fire and to
properly exhaust air, the exhaust
gases extracted by the hood
should be vented outside of the
building only.
Do not vent exhaust air into
spaces within walls or ceilings or
in attics, crawl spaces or garages.
To reduce the risk of fire, only use
metal ductwork.
Exhaust ducting and connections
Use smooth or flexible pipework made
from approved non-flammable
materials for exhaust ducting.
To achieve the most efficient air
extraction and quietest noise levels,
consider the following:
– The diameter of the ductwork should
not be less than 8" (203 mm) with
DRIB/DREB XL and 10" (254 mm)
with DRIB/DREB XXL.
– If flat ducting is used, the cross
section must not be smaller than the
cross section of the ventilation
exhaust.
– The ducting should be as short and
straight as possible.
– Use ductwork with a wide radius.
Please read and follow the
"IMPORTANT SAFETY
INSTRUCTIONS" to reduce the risk of
personal injury. Follow all local building
codes when installing the hood.
– The exhaust duct must not be bent
or compressed.
– Make sure all connections are
secure.
– Where the ductwork is horizontal, it
must slope away from the hood at
least 1/8" per foot (1 cm per meter) to
prevent condensation dripping into
the appliance.
28
Air venting
– If the exhaust is ducted into an
inactive flue, the air must be expelled
parallel to the flow direction of the
flue.
Never connect an exhaust hood to
an active chimney, dryer vent, flue,
or room venting ductwork. Seek
professional advice before
connecting an exhaust hood vent to
an existing, inactive chimney or vent
flue.
Important
If the ductwork runs through rooms,
ceilings, garages, etc. where
temperature variations exist, it may
need to be insulated to reduce
condensation.
