switched your cooker hood OFF at the power switch, set at
the wall from the cable:
Cleaning
 Clean the external parts with
mild liquid detergents on a
damp cloth.
 Never use abrasive powder,
corrosive solvents or brushes.
 Never insert pointed objects
into the motor‟s protective grid.

 Be sure to replace the
carbon filters at the
recommended intervals.
Build up could cause a
fire hazard.
 Never take out the
grease filters and
attempt to clean the
space above where they
are set
Only clean the control panel
and filter grill with a damp
cloth and delicate detergents.
________________________________________________
Anti-Grease Grille
 Your cooker hood includes an anti-grease grille which helps
absorb vapour-suspended grease particles to protect your
kitchen & furniture from greasy residues.
 The metal grille may become inflammable if it becomes
saturated with greasy residue.
7

To prevent this fire hazard, the grille should be cleaned
regularly (depending on use) every 10-15 days and at least
once a month in hot water with normal washing-up detergent.
DO NOT USE A DISHWASHER TO ACHIEVE THIS.
Maintenance - Cleaning the Anti-grease Filters
on: Please Read this before installing & using.
First remove the grille by pulling down on it. Undo the
side catches.
You can now clean the anti-grease filter grilles.
 Soak them for about one hour in hot water with a
grease-loosening detergent then rinse off thoroughly
with hot water.
 Repeat the process if needed. Refit the grease grille
once it has dried.
 Refit the grease grilles when dry.
Let the filter grilles dry thoroughly before refitting
them.

Maintenance – Changing the Light Bulb and Carbon Filter
a)
Changing the light bulb

Before changing the light bulb, ensure that the appliance is not live (i.e., ensure
that you have switched it off so that it‟s in the „0‟ position).

Remove the metal anti-grease filters (see Figure 2 below) and find the old bulb
located in the light fixture up inside the exposed canopy. Change the halogen bulb using
only halogen spares with a G4 coupling, max. 20W.
9
* PLEASE NOTE - Defective bulbs should be replaced immediately.

Replace the metal anti-grease filters.
Installing / Changing the Carbon Filter
______________________________________________________________________________________
Installing / Changing the Carbon Filter.
Your Cooker Hood uses CARBON FILTERS to purify the air
for the air recirculation function.
You will find two filters that will attach to both sides of
the fan motor (please see figures at bottom of page).
The active carbon filters must be replaced regularly, at least once
every three months to allow normal operation.
Before starting to fit the carbon filter, turn the omni-polar switch
to zero (0).
Changing the Carbon Filters

1) Press the handle of the metal grease
filter towards the rear part of the unit
until it is released from the front
housing, and remove it by pressing
downwards (Fig. 2 - above).
2) Remove the old carbon filters by
twisting them anticlockwise until they
unlatch from the sides of the motor.
3) Place the new carbon filters (which
have two fixing tongues), turning
clockwise so that the tongues latch
onto the motor‟s sides. (Fig. 3 - left).

(N) on the upper part of the hood
(see Fig. 1) to the discharge outlet
for cooking vapours with a crosssection of at least 150 cm².
N
 PLEASE NOTE: If there is no
discharge outlet and the hood is to
be fitted to an outside wall of the
building, make a hole in the wall
that is large enough to fit a wind
and rain-proof shutter with a cross
section of at least 150 cm² and
connect this to the outlet union of
the unit by means of a pipe.
N
Please note: For the extraction function, you will
need to connect a 125 mm diameter outlet chimney
to the union „N‟ in Fig. 2. This pipe is not provided
with your cooker hood. See figure on left.
