Before use
Before using your new extractor hood for
the first time, please read this manual
information concerning your personal
safety as well as on the use and care of the
extractor hood.
• Remove all packaging (except the
protective film on the two chimney
sections) and dispose of it in an
environmentally friendly manner.
• If the extractor hood is damaged in any
way, do not use it. Report the damage to
your dealer, who will take the necessary

responsibility on page 11 of this
Electrical connection
Safety advice
This extractor hood complies with all
relevant safety regulations.
Never operate the extractor hood
without a grease filter.
Never leave cooking fat or oil
unattended. Overheated fat or oil can
easily catch fire.
Do not flambé food directly under the
extractor hood. The flames pose the risk
of the grease filter catching fire. (see
page 10 Maintenance and cleaning).
Restrictions apply to the use of the
extractor hood over a solid fuel or gas
stove. (See Preparing for installation on
page 5).
Switch off the power at the mains in the
event of a fault or when cleaning the
extractor hood.
Page 4
Do not touch any part of the light
fittings or adjacent areas during or
straight after prolonged use as they get
very hot and could cause severe burns.
In certain circumstances electrical
appliances may be a hazard.
Do not check the status of the filters
while the extractor hood is operating.
unattended and always ensure that the
burners are covered as open flames are
damaging for the filters and a fire
Constantly check food frying to avoid
overheated oil becoming a fire hazard
There must be adequate ventilation of
the room when the extractor hood is
used at the same time as appliances
burning gas or other fuels.
There is a risk of fire if cleaning is not
carried out in accordance with the
The extractor hood uses a 220230V~ /50Hz power supply.
If the mains power cord is damaged, it
must be replaced by a qualified
The power cord is located in the
chimney area. Should you require an
installation with no visible wiring, a 15
amp earthed plug socket should be
accessible either in the ceiling above
the extractor hood or on the wall behind
the chimney area. (A qualified
electrician should provide this facility).
The extractor hood must be earthed.
The manufacturer and the seller do
not accept responsibility for any
damage due to incorrect electrical
This extractor hood may not be used
with a battery inverter power supply.
Preparing for installation
The extractor hood has the ability to
either recirculate the filtered air back
into the kitchen, or the filtered air can
be circulated through a duct to the
outside of the building or into the
Decide on which option best suits you
before commencing with the installation.
• The extractor hood is intended to be
mounted onto a flat perpendicular
kitchen wall capable of supporting the
weight of the hood. (approx. 26 kg.)
Tools required for installation:
• An electric drill.
• A 3.5 mm dia. steel drill bit.
• 8 mm & 5 mm dia. masonry drill bits.
• A star screw driver (Posi bit 2).
• A ratchet with a 10 mm socket and a
100 mm extension.
• A tape measure, masking tape and a

Re-circulating filtered air
The extractor hood filters out solid particles
before the air is re-circulated, via the vents
on the side of the upper chimney, into the
filtered air
Care must be taken during installation not
to obstruct these vents.
No ducting is required for this type of
Venting air to the outside
When discharging the air into a ventilation
duct or directly through the wall into the
open, please take note of the following:
• Exhaust air from the extractor hood
must not be directed into a flue or
chimney which is used for exhausting
the fumes or smoke from appliances
burning gas or fuels.
• Please ensure that regulations
concerning the discharge of exhaust
air have been fulfilled. (SABS IEC
For optimum extractor hood efficiency
use a short, smooth, round air exhaust
pipe with as few bends as possible. A 150
recommended. Long box section,
narrowed or bent pipes will hinder
performance and increase noise levels.
• Connecting a 150 mm diameter pipe:
Mount the pipe directly onto the air
outlet on the extractor hood.
• Connecting a 125 mm or 100 mm
diameter pipe: Attach a reducing
connector (available from a specialist
retailer) to the air pipe and then attach
to the exhaust-air duct.

• For
mounting the 3 chimney
brackets, drill 2 holes, 5 mm diameter
and 45 mm deep into the wall.
• For mounting the extractor hood,
drill 2 holes, 8 mm in diameter and 60
mm deep.

• Partially screw two 6 mm screws into
the wall plugs leaving them to protrude
about 10 mm.
• Lift and hang the extractor hood onto
the two protruding screws through the
key-hole slots provided at the top of the
extractor hood frame.
• Place slotted washers between the
extractor hood frame and the protruding
screw heads.
• Align the extractor hood ‘V’ notch with
the vertical centre line and align the
body of the hood with the horizontal
line before tightening the two screws.

is switched on before any food is
cooked. We also recommend that the

minutes after the food is cooked, in

performance of the extractor hood
depends on constant maintenance; the
anti-grease filter and the active carbon
filter both require special attention.
Grease filters
• Remove the plastic outer protective
lining on the grease filters before fitting
them to the extractor hood.
• To fit the filters, engage the two lugs at
the rear of each filter into the
rectangular slots of the extractor hood
frame, lift the filter and press the handle
catch inwards.
• Engage the filter and release the catch.
• To remove the filter, for cleaning
purposes, reverse the procedure
described above.
• The anti-grease filter is used to trap
any grease particles suspended in the
air, therefore is subject to saturation
(the time it takes for the filter to
become saturated depends on the way
in which the appliance is used).
To prevent potential fire hazards, the
anti-grease filters should be washed a
minimum of every 2 months (it is
possible to use the dishwasher for this

filters may change. This does not mean

General cleaning.
Stainless steel is not adversely affected by
normal household use but because of its
reputation for durability, it is sometimes
assumed to be indestructible, and
therefore subjected to misuse or even
abuse. Care should be taken to avoid such
‘abnormal use’.
Cleaning materials.
Do use:
• A moist lint free soft cloth or synthetic
• Soap, or mild liquid detergent.
• A mild window cleaner.
• Diluted ammonia in warm water.
• A nylon bristle brush.
• Cleaners labelled “Suitable for stainless
Do not use:
• A steam cleaner.
• Acid, alcohol, soda, chloride or spirit
based cleaners.
• Coarse abrasive cleaning powders.
• Metallic scourers, steel wool, metal
scrapers, or plastic scouring pads.
• Wire brushes or emery paper.
• So called “silver cleaners”.
Cleaning procedure
• Frequent cleaning is recommended
rather than an occasional aggressive
• Routine cleaning will preserve the
corrosion resistance and the appearance
of the stainless steel for many years.
• Clean the stainless steel as often as
necessary (i.e. when it is noticeably dull
or dirty) and use the simplest cleaning
method that will effectively do the job.
• Use clean water, or a mild detergent
solution applied with a soft cloth or
sponge. Rinse well and wipe dry.
• Always wipe in the direction of the
brushed texture on the stainless steel.
• Periodically apply a fine film of
dedicated stainless steel cleaner or
baby oil to the canopy of the extractor
hood to add lustre and sparkle to the
