Warning and Safety instructions
Technical safety
 Repairs and other work by unqualified persons could be
dangerous. Installation, maintenance work and repairs to electrical
appliances must only be carried out by a Miele approved service
technician.
 A damaged appliance can be dangerous. Check it for visible signs
of damage. Do not use a damaged appliance.
 The electrical safety of this appliance can only be guaranteed
when continuity is complete between it and an effective earthing
system. It is most important that this basic safety requirement is
present and tested regularly and, where there is any doubt, the
household wiring system should be inspected by a qualified
electrician.
 Before connecting the appliance to the mains supply, ensure that
the connection data on the data plate (voltage and frequency)
matches the mains electricity supply. This data must correspond in
order to avoid the risk of damage to the appliance. Consult a
qualified electrician if in any doubt.
 Do not connect the appliance to the mains electricity supply by a
multi-socket unit or an extension lead. Extension leads are a fire
hazard and do not guarantee the required safety of the appliance.
 For appliances with an external motor fitted (...EXT models) the
connection of the two units must be made using the connection
cable and the plug connectors.
These models may only be combined with a Miele external motor.
6
Warning and Safety instructions
 For safety reasons, this appliance may only be used after it has
been built in.
 This rangehood must not be installed and operated in mobile
installations (e.g. on a ship).
 Tampering with electrical connections or components and
mechanical parts is highly dangerous to the user and can cause
operational faults.
Only open the housing as described in the instructions given in the
installation sheet and in the Cleaning and care section of this
booklet. Under no circumstances should any other parts of the
housing be opened.
 Faulty components must only be replaced by genuine Miele spare
parts. The manufacturer can only guarantee the safety of the
appliance when Miele replacement parts are used.
 If the electrical connection cable is faulty, it must only be replaced
by a Miele authorised service technician to protect the user from
danger.
 During installation, maintenance and repair work, the appliance
must be disconnected from the mains electricity supply. It is only
completely isolated from the electricity supply when:
– the mains fuse has been disconnected, or
– the screw-out fuse is removed (in countries where this is
applicable), or

from the socket. Do not pull the mains connection cable but the
mains plug to disconnect your appliance from the mains
electricity supply.
7
Warning and Safety instructions
Using at the same time as other heating appliances that depend on the air
from the room
 Warning - danger of toxic fumes
Great care should be taken when using the rangehood at the
same time and in the same room or area of the house as another
heating appliance which depends on the air in the room.
Such appliances include gas, oil, wood or coal-fired boilers and
heaters, continuous flow or other water heaters, gas cooktops, or
ovens which draw air in from the room and duct exhaust gases
out through a chimney or extraction ducting.
When used in extraction mode, with or without an external motor
fitted, or in recirculation mode with a recirculation box installed
outside the room, the appliance draws air in from the room in
which it is installed and from neighbouring rooms.
If there is insufficient air, an underpressure will occur. The heating
appliance will be starved of oxygen, impairing combustion.
Harmful gases could be drawn out of the chimney or extraction
ducting back into the room, with potentially fatal consequences.
8
Warning and Safety instructions
In order to ensure safe operation, and to prevent gases given off
by the heating appliances from being drawn back into the room
when the rangehood and the heater are in operation
simultaneously, an underpressure in the room of 0.04 mbar (4 pa)
is the maximum permissible.
Ventilation can be maintained by air inlets which cannot be
blocked, in windows, doors or outside wall vents, or by other
technical measures, such as ensuring that the rangehood can only
be switched on when the heating appliance is switched off or vice
versa. A ventilation brick alone is not generally sufficient to ensure
safe ventilation.
The overall ventilation condition of the dwelling must be taken into
account. If in any doubt, the advice of a competent builder or, for
gas, a qualified gas fitter must be sought.
The rangehood must not be used in recirculation mode, where the
air is directed back into the room where it is located, at the same
time as a heating appliance which depends on the room air.
9
Warning and Safety instructions
Correct use
 Never use an open flame beneath the rangehood. To avoid the
danger of fire, do not flambé or grill over an open flame.
When switched on, the rangehood could draw flames into the filter.
Fat deposits could ignite, presenting a fire hazard.
 The rangehood can become damaged when exposed to
excessive heat.
– When using the rangehood over a gas cooktop, ensure that any
burners in use are always covered by a pan. Switch the cooking
zone off when a pan is removed, even for a short time.
– Select a pan which is suitable for the size of the burner.
– Regulate the flame so that it does not burn up the sides of the
pan.
– Avoid overheating the pan (e.g. when cooking with a wok).
 Always switch the rangehood on when a cooking zone is in use,
otherwise condensation may collect in the rangehood, which could
cause corrosion.
 When cooking with oil or fat, chip pans and deep fat fryers etc.,
do not leave the pans unattended. Never leave an open grill
unattended when grilling. Overheated oil and fat can ignite and
could set the rangehood on fire.
10
Warning and Safety instructions
 Do not use the rangehood without the filters in place. This way
you will avoid the risk of grease and dirt getting into the appliance
and hindering its smooth operation.
 The filters should be regularly cleaned or changed as appropriate.
Saturated filters are a fire hazard.
 The rangehood can get very hot during cooking due to heat rising
from the cooktop.
Do not touch the housing or the grease filters until the rangehood
has cooled down.
Correct installation
 Refer to the cooktop manufacturer's instructions as to whether a
rangehood may be operated above the cooktop.
 Safety regulations prohibit the fitting of a rangehood over solid
fuel stoves.
 Insufficient distance between the cooktop and the rangehood can
result in damage to the rangehood.
The minimum safety distances between the top of the cooktop and
the bottom of the rangehood given in the "Installation" section must
be maintained, unless the cooktop manufacturer states that a
greater distance is required.
If more than one cooking appliance is fitted beneath the rangehood,
and they have different minimum safety distances to the rangehood,
select the greater distance.
 The distances given in "Installation" must be observed when
fitting the rangehood.
11
Warning and Safety instructions
 All ducting, pipework and fittings must be of non-flammable
material. These can be obtained from Miele or from builders'
merchants.
 The appliance must not be connected to a chimney or vent flue
which is in use. Neither should it be connected to ducting which
ventilates rooms with fireplaces.
 If exhaust air is to be extracted into a chimney or ventilation duct
no longer used for other purposes, seek professional advice.
Cleaning and care
 Do not use a steam cleaning appliance to clean this appliance.
The steam could reach electrical components and cause a short
circuit.
Accessories
 Use only genuine original Miele spare parts. If spare parts or
accessories from other manufacturers are used, the warranty will be
invalidated, and Miele cannot accept liability.
12
Caring for the environment
Disposal of the packing
material
Disposing of your old
appliance
The transport and protective packing
has been selected from materials which
are environmentally friendly for
disposal, and can normally be recycled.
Electrical and electronic appliances
often contain materials which, if
handled or disposed of incorrectly,
could be potentially hazardous to
human health and to the environment.
They are, however, essential for the
correct functioning of your appliance.
Therefore, please do not dispose of
your old appliance with your household
waste.
Recycling the packaging reduces the
use of raw materials in the
manufacturing process and also
reduces the amount of waste in landfill
sites. Ensure that any plastic
wrappings, bags etc. are disposed of
safely and kept out of the reach of
babies and young children. Danger of
suffocation.
Please dispose of it at your local
community waste collection / recycling
centre.
Ensure that your old appliance presents
no danger to children while being
stored for disposal.
13
Description of the functions
Depending on the model of the
rangehood, the following options are
available:
Air extraction mode
The air is drawn in and cleaned by the
grease filters and directed outside.
Non-return flap
The non-return flap is designed to
prevent the exchange of room and
outside air taking place.
The flap is closed when the rangehood
is switched off.
When the rangehood is switched on,
the non-return flap opens for the
cooking vapours to be blown directly
outside.
If the on-site ventilation system does
not have a non-return flap, the nonreturn flap supplied must be fitted.
14
Recirculation mode
(available as an optional extra with a
conversion kit and charcoal filter: see
"Technical Data")
The air is drawn in and cleaned first by
the grease filters and then by a
charcoal filter. The cleaned air is then
recirculated back into the kitchen.
Operation with an external
motor
(...EXT model rangehoods)
Rangehoods set up for operation with
an external motor have to be connected
to a Miele external motor located in a
suitable position outside the room in
which the rangehood is installed. The
external motor is linked to the
rangehood via a connection cable and
then operated via Con@ctivity 2.0 or
using the controls on the rangehood.
Description of the functions
Con@ctivity function
Automatic control
The rangehood has a communication
facility which enables the automatic
operation of the rangehood depending
on the operational state of a Miele
electric cooktop.
The cooktop transmits information
about its operational status via a radio
signal to the rangehood.
– When the cooktop is switched on,
the cooktop lighting on the
rangehood comes on independently
and, then after a short time, the fan
also comes on.
– During cooking the rangehood
automatically sets the power level
according to the number of cooking
zones in operation and their power
levels.
– After switching the cooktop off, the
fan and the cooktop lighting will
switch off automatically after a
specified period of time.
See "Operation" for detailed
information about this function.
For communication to take place, the
cooktop must be fitted with an
appropriate Con@ctivity 2.0 stick.
Please consult the installation
instructions for the Con@ctivity 2.0
stick to see if connection with your
cooktop is possible.
In order to be able to use the
Con@ctivity 2.0 function, radio contact
between the cooktop and the
rangehood must be established (see
"Activating Con@ctivity 2.0").

Operation (automatic mode)
If Con@ctivity 2.0 is activated, the
rangehood always operates in
automatic mode (see "Activating
Con@ctivity 2.0").
To operate the rangehood manually,
see "Cooking without Con@ctivity 2.0".
Cooking with Con@ctivity 2.0
(automatic mode)
 Switch a cooking zone on at the
power setting you want.
The rangehood lighting will come on.
After a few seconds the fan will come
on, first at power setting 2, then it will
switch immediately to power setting 1.
The rangehood selects the power
setting automatically during cooking.
This is determined by the total output of
the cooktop, i.e. the number of cooking
zones in operation and the power
settings selected.
 If you select a higher power setting or
are using several cooking zones, the
rangehood will switch to a higher
power setting.
 When you reduce the power setting
or the number of cooking zones on
the cooktop, the rangehood power
setting will also be reduced.
Examples for power levels 1 to 4
18
Reaction time
The rangehood reacts with a slight
delay because altering the power
setting on the cooktop does not
immediately result in a reduction or
increase in cooking vapours.
Because the cooktop transmits the
information to the rangehood at
intervals, this can also cause delays.
The reaction can vary from a few
seconds to a couple of minutes.
Operation (automatic mode)
Cooking process
Switching off
 If, for example, you switch on a
cooking zone at the highest power
setting to heat a pan for frying and
reduce the power level after approx.
60 to 90 seconds*, a cooking process
is recognised (*60 seconds to 5
minutes for a HiLight cooktop).
 Switch off all cooking zones.
The rangehood switches itself on and
when the cooktop power level has been
reduced, the rangehood switches to
power setting 3 and remains at that
level for approx. 5 minutes.
After that the rangehood power setting
is determined automatically by the
Con@ctivity function.
 You can select another power setting
manually before then.
The rangehood fan will reduce its
power level over the next few minutes
and will eventually switch itself off.
This helps to neutralise any lingering
vapours and odours in the air.
– From the intensive setting IS the fan
switches immediately to setting 3.
– From setting 3 the fan switches to
setting 2 after approx. one minute.
– From setting 2 the fan switches to
setting 1 after two minutes.
– After 2 minutes at setting 1, the fan
switches itself off.
– After another 30 seconds, the lighting
switches off.
The cooking process is then finished.

cleaning instructions.
 Switch the rangehood off before any
cleaning or maintenance work is
carried out
 All external surfaces and controls can
be cleaned using warm water with a
small amount of washing-up liquid
applied with a well wrung-out soft
sponge or cloth.
Do not use too much water when
cleaning the controls.
Water could penetrate into the
electronics and cause damage.
 After cleaning, wipe the surfaces dry
using a soft cloth.
Do not use:
– cleaning agents containing soda,
acids, chlorides or solvents,
– abrasive cleaning agents, e.g.
powder cleaners or cream cleaners
and abrasive sponges, as well as pot
scourers or sponges which have
been used previously with abrasive
cleaning agents. These will damage
the surface material.
26
Important for appliances with
stainless steel surfaces
(This infomation does not apply to the
controls)
 Stainless steel surfaces can be
cleaned with a proprietary nonabrasive cleaning agent designed
specifically for use on stainless steel.
 To help prevent re-soiling, a
proprietary conditioning agent for
stainless steel (Original Miele Care
product for stainless steel) can also
be used. Follow the manufacturer’s
instructions on the packaging.
Apply sparingly with a soft cloth
following the instructions on the
packaging.
Important for appliances with
lacquered housing
(Special order finish)
 Observe the general notes on
cleaning earlier in this section.
It is very difficult to clean this type of
surface without causing minor marks
to the surface material. This can
become particularly noticeable if there
is halogen lighting in the kitchen.
Cleaning and care
Controls
Do not leave soiling on the controls
for any length of time.
Otherwise they may suffer
discolouration or damage.
Remove any soiling immediately.
 Observe the general notes on
cleaning earlier in this section.
Do not use stainless steel cleaning
agents on the controls.
Important for the glass edging
 The glass edging can be cleaned
using a proprietary non-abrasive
cleaning agent designed specifically
for use on glass.
Grease filters
The re-usable metal grease filters in the
appliance remove solid particles
(grease, dust, etc.) from the kitchen
vapours, preventing soiling of the
rangehood.
 An oversaturated filter is a fire
hazard.
When to clean the grease filters
The grease filters should be cleaned
regularly (at least every 3-4 weeks) to
avoid a build-up of grease.
Clean them immediately if the grease
filter operating hours control  lights
up.
 You can set the operating hours
counter for the grease filter to suit the
type of cooking you do (see
"Operation").
Removing the grease filters
The grease filters can fall out when
you are handling it.
This can result in damage to the
filters and the cooktop below.
Make sure you hold the filters
securely at all times when handling
them.
27
Cleaning and care
Cleaning the grease filters in the
dishwasher
 Place the filters as upright as
possible in the lower basket, with the
short sides upright, ensuring the
spray arm is not obstructed.
 Use a proprietary household
dishwasher detergent.
 To take out a grease filter, release the
locking clip on the filter, lower the
filter approx. 45°, unhook it at the
back and remove it.
Cleaning the grease filters by hand
 Clean the filters with a soft nylon
brush in a mild solution of hot water
and a small amount of washing-up
liquid. Do not use undiluted washing
up liquid.
Unsuitable cleaning agents
Unsuitable cleaning agents can cause
damage to the surface of the filters if
used regularly.
Do not use:
– cleaning agents containing descaling
agents,
– powder cleaners or cream cleaners,
– aggressive all-purpose cleaning
agents or spray cleaners for grease,
– oven sprays.
28
 Select a dishwasher programme with
a wash temperature between 50 °C
and 65 °C.
Depending on the cleaning agent
used, cleaning the filters in a
dishwasher can cause permanent
discolouration to the surface.
However, this will not affect the
functioning of the filters in any way.
After cleaning
 After cleaning, leave the filters to dry
on an absorbent surface before
refitting them.
 When removing the filters for
cleaning, also clean off any residues
of oil or fat from the now accessible
housing to prevent the risk of these
catching fire.
Cleaning and care
 Replace the grease filters, making
sure that the locking clips are facing
down towards the cooktop.
 If a grease filter is inadvertently
refitted upside down, insert a small
screwdriver blade into the slit to
disengage the clip.
Resetting the operating hours
counter for the grease filters
After cleaning, the operating hours
counter needs to be reset.
 Whilst the fan is switched on, press
the operating hours control  for
approx. 3 seconds until only the 1 is
flashing.
NoSmell active charcoal filter
If the rangehood is connected for
recirculation, a charcoal filter must be
inserted in addition to the grease filters.
This is designed to absorb cooking
odours and is fitted in the canopy
above the grease filters.
Replacement charcoal filters can be
obtained from Miele or via the internet
at www.miele-shop.com (depending on
country). See back cover for contact
details, and "Technical data" for type

Installation recommendations
– When deciding on the safety
distance between the cooktop and
rangehood, please note that a
distance of 650 mm above electric
cooktops may be preferable to give
more working space under the
rangehood.
Drilling diagram for wall
mounting
 Please follow the directions given in
the installation instructions supplied
for drilling.
– Account should also be taken of the
height of the person who will be
using the rangehood most often.
They should have sufficient space to
work comfortably at the cooktop,
and be able to reach the rangehood
controls with ease.
– If positioned too high, extraction will
be inefficient.
– To achieve optimum vapour
extraction, the rangehood must cover
the cooktop. It should be positioned
centrally over the cooktop, not to the
side.
– The cooktop should be no wider than
the rangehood, and if possible, it
should be narrower, especially for
distances greater than 750 mm.
– The installation area must be easily
accessible. The rangehood should be
easily accessible and easy to
dismantle in the event that service is
required. This should be taken into
consideration when planning the
position of cupboards, shelves,
ceilings or features in the vicinity of
the rangehood.
36
 For pre-installation of a back wall
where the holes have to be predrilled, please refer to the drilling
distances in the drawing above
(screws  5 mm).
Connection for air extraction
 Before installation, it is important
to read the information given on the
following pages as well as the
"Appliance dimensions" and the
"Warning and Safety instructions" at
the beginning of this booklet. This is
particularly crucial when using the
rangehood at the same time as a
heating appliance that relies on
oxygen from the same room, which
could result in the build-up of toxic
fumes.
It is particularly important that the
"Warning and Safety instructions"
are observed.
The rangehood should be installed
according to local and national
building regulations. Seek approval
from the building inspector where
necessary.
 Only use smooth pipes or flexible
hoses made from non-flammable
materials for the extraction ducting.
Highly flexible, concertina type
ducting material will greatly reduce
the performance of the rangehood.
 When using an external motor, make
sure that the exhaust ducting is
sufficiently rigid. The external motor
can cause an underpressure which
can result in the exhaust ducting
distorting.
 To achieve the greatest possible air
extraction with the lowest noise level,
please note the following:
A reduction in diameter will
compromise the extraction
performance of the rangehood.
– If flat ducting is being used, the
cross-sectional area must not be
smaller than the cross-sectional area
of the exhaust connection.
– The exhaust ducting should be as
short and straight as possible.
– Only use wide radius bends.
– The exhaust ducting should not be
kinked or compressed.
– Ensure that all connections are
strong and airtight.
Remember that any constriction of
the airflow will reduce extraction
performance and increase operating
noise.
 If the exhaust is ducted through an
outside wall, a telescopic wall vent or
a roof vent (available as an optional
accessory) is recommended.
 If the exhaust air is to be ducted into
a vent flue, the ducting must be
directed in the flow direction of the
flue.
– To ensure efficient air extraction, the
diameter of the exhaust ducting
should not be less than 150 mm.
37
Connection for air extraction
 When ducting is horizontal it must be
laid to slope away at at least 1 cm
per metre. This is to ensure that
condensate cannot drain back into
the rangehood.
 If the exhaust ducting is to run
through rooms, ceiling space etc.
where there may be great variations
in temperature between the different
areas, the problem of condensation
will need to be addressed. The
exhaust ducting will need to be
suitably insulated.
exhaust connection.
The arrow on the housing indicates
the direction of airflow.
The condensate trap will be integrated
in rangehoods which are designed to
be connected to an external fan
(model......EXT).
Silencer
Condensate trap
To achieve even further reductions in
noise levels, a special silencer (optional
accessory) can be fitted in the ducting
system.
Air extraction mode
In addition to insulating the exhaust
ducting, we recommend that a suitable
condensate trap is also installed to
collect and evaporate any condensate
which may occur.
Condensate traps are available for 125
mm or 150 mm ducting.
 When installing a condensate trap,
ensure that it is positioned vertically
and if possible directly above the
38
The silencer not only reduces noise
from the motor outside the house, but
also sounds from outside (e.g. traffic
noise). For this reason, the silencer
must be positioned as close as
possible to the ducting exit .
Recirculation mode
The silencer needs to be positioned
between the exhaust connection and
the directional unit . Ensure there is
adequate space in the tower for fitting
it.
Connection for air extraction
Air extraction with external motor
To minimise noise from the motor in the
kitchen, the silencer should be
positioned in front of the external motor
 if possible, or, if the ducting is long,
above the exhaust connection inside
the rangehood . In the case of an
external motor located inside the
house, fitting a silencer behind the
external motor  reduces the noise of
the motor outside the house.
39
Electrical connection
The rangehood must be connected to a
suitably earthed socket (AC 230 V, 50
Hz). All electrical work should be
undertaken by a suitably qualified and
competent person in strict accordance
with current national and local safety
and building code regulations.
Installation, repairs and other work by
unqualified persons could be
dangerous, for which the manufacturer
cannot be held liable.
Ensure power is not supplied to the
appliance until after installation or repair
work has been carried out.
For extra safety it is advisable to install
a residual current device (RCD) with a
trip current of 30 mA.
Connection of this appliance should be
made via a suitable isolator which
complies with national and local safety
regulations and the On-Off switch
should be easily accessible after the
appliance has been built in.
If the mains socket is not accessible
after installation, an additional means of
disconnection must be provided for all
poles. There must be an all-pole
contact gap of 3 mm in the switch
(including switch, fuses and relays
according to EN 60335).
The connection data is given on the
data plate. (See "After sales service").
Ensure that this data matches the
household mains supply.
