Description of functions
The following functions are available on
your ventilation hood, depending on the
model:
Vented mode
Air entering through the intake is
cleaned by the grease filters and
conducted out of the building.
Non-return flap
A non-return flap in the ducting
prevents the exchange of inside and
outside air from occurring when the
ventilation hood is not in use.
The flap is closed when the ventilation
hood is turned off.
When the ventilation hood is turned on,
the non-return flap opens so that the
exhaust air can be transported outside
without any obstruction.
A non-return flap has been provided
with the hood in case your ducting
does not have one. It is inserted into
the outlet duct collar of the fan.
14
Recirculation mode
(Recirculation mode hoods require a
Recirculation kit an OdorFree Charcoal
Filter (available as optional
accessories), see "Technical Data" for
more information.)
Air entering through the intake is first
cleaned by the grease filters and then
by an OdorFree Charcoal Filter. The
cleaned air is then recirculated back
into the kitchen.
Description of functions
Con@ctivity 2.0 function
Automatic control
This hood features a communication
function which enables the automatic
control of the hood based on the
operational status of a Miele cooktop.
The cooktop transmits information
about its operational status to the hood
using a radio signal.
– When a burner is turned on, the
cooktop lighting on the hood turns
on automatically. After a brief delay,
the ventilation hood fan also comes
on.
– During cooking, the hood
automatically selects the fan level
based on the number of burners in
operation and their power levels.
– Once you have turned off the
cooktop, the fan and the lighting will
turn off automatically after a
predetermined delay.
Detailed information about this function
can be found under "Operation."
To enable the communication function,
the cooktop must be equipped with the
corresponding Con@ctivity 2.0 stick .
Please refer to the installation
instructions for the Con@ctivity 2.0
stick to determine whether connection
to your cooktop is possible.
There must be radio contact between
the cooktop and the hood for you to be
able to use the Con@ctivity 2.0 function
(see "Activating Con@ctivity 2.0").

Operation (Automatic mode)
When Con@ctivity 2.0 is active, the
hood always operates in Automatic
mode (see "Activating Con@ctivity
2.0").
See "Cooking without Con@ctivity 2.0"
for information on manually operating
the hood.
Cooking with Con@ctivity 2.0
(Automatic mode)
 Turn on a burner to the desired power
setting.
The hood lighting will come on.
After a few seconds, the fan will come
on, briefly operating at power level 2
before immediately switching to level 1.
The hood selects the fan level
automatically during cooking.
This level is determined by the total
output of the cooktop, i.e. the number
of burners in operation and the power
settings selected.
 If you select a higher power setting
on the cooktop or switch on multiple
burners, the hood will switch to a
higher fan level.
 If you select a lower power setting on
the cooktop or turn off a burner, the
hood will accordingly switch to a
lower fan level.
Examples for fan levels 1 to 4
18
Reaction time
Changing the power setting on the
cooktop does not lead to an immediate
increase or decrease in cooking vapors.
For this reason, the hood reacts with a
slight delay.
Delays can also result from the fact that
the cooktop transmits the information
to the hood in intervals.
The reaction time can vary from a few
seconds to a couple of minutes.
Operation (Automatic mode)
Cooking process
Turning off
 If, for example, you switch on a
burner at the highest power setting to
heat cookware in preparation for
searing and then reduce the power
level after approx. 60 to 90 seconds*,
a cooking process is recognized.
 Turn off all burners.
The hood turns on automatically and,
after the cooktop power level has been
reduced, switches back to fan level 3,
where it remains for approx. 5 minutes.
After this, the fan level is once again
determined by the Con@ctivity function.
 You can also manually select a
different fan level before then.
Over the next few minutes, the
ventilation hood fan setting will
decrease one level at a time until the
hood eventually turns off.
This helps to neutralize any lingering
vapors and odors in the air.
– From the intensive setting IS, the fan
immediately switches to level 3.
– If the fan is operating at level 3, it will
switch to level 2 after approx. 1
minute.
– From level 2, the fan switches to level
1 after 2 minutes.
– After 2 minutes at level 1, the fan
automatically turns off.
– After another 30 seconds, the lighting
turns off.
The cooking process is now finished.

Cleaning and care
Special instructions for control
buttons
Do not leave dirt and debris on the
buttons for any length of time.
Otherwise they may become
discolored or damaged.
Remove any dirt or debris
immediately.
 Observe the general cleaning
instructions contained in this chapter.
Do not use a stainless steel cleaner
to clean the control buttons.
Special instructions for glass
surfaces
 Glass surfaces can be cleaned using
a commercial glass cleaner.
Grease filters
The reusable metal grease filter in the
appliance removes solid particles from
the kitchen vapors (grease, dust, etc.)
preventing soiling of the hood.
 A dirty filter is a fire hazard!
Cleaning intervals
Over longer periods of time, fat buildup
on the grease filter hardens and makes
cleaning more difficult. Therefore, we
recommend cleaning the grease filters
once every 3-4 weeks.
Clean the grease filters regularly when
the grease filter symbol  on the filter
saturation indicator lights up.
 You can adjust the interval of the filter
saturation indicator to match your
cooking habits (see "Operation").
Removing the grease filters
When handling a grease filter, be
careful not to drop it.
This can result in damage to the filter
and to the cooktop.
Make sure you hold the filter
securely at all times when handling
it.
26
Cleaning and care
 To remove a grease filter, release the
locking clip. Then, open the filter to a
45° angle, unhook it, and remove it
from the hood.
Cleaning the grease filter by hand
 Clean the filters with a soft nylon
brush in a mild solution of hot water
and dish soap. Do not use undiluted
dish soap.
Unsuitable cleaning agents
Unsuitable cleaners can cause damage
to the filter surfaces if used regularly.
Do not use any of the following:
– Lime removers
– Abrasive powders or abrasive liquids
– Aggressive all-purpose cleaners and
degreaser sprays
– Oven sprays
Cleaning the grease filter in a
dishwasher
 Place the filters as upright or inclined
as possible in the lower basket.
Ensure that the spray arm is not
obstructed.
 Use a common household
dishwasher detergent.
 Select a program with a wash
temperature between 122°F (50°C)
and 149°F (65°C).
Depending on the cleaning agent
used, cleaning the grease filter in a
dishwasher can cause permanent
discoloration to the surface. However,
this will not affect the functioning of
the filter in any way.
After cleaning
 After cleaning, leave the filters on an
absorbent surface to dry.
 When removing the filter for cleaning,
also clean off any residues of oil or
fat from the now accessible casing to
prevent the risk of these catching fire.
27
Cleaning and care
 Replace the grease filter, making sure
that the locking clip is facing down
towards the cooktop.
 If the filters have been installed
incorrectly, you can insert a small
screwdriver into the slit to disengage
the locking clip.
OdorFree Charcoal Filter
If the hood is connected for
recirculation, an OdorFree Charcoal
Filter must be inserted in addition to the
grease filter. This is designed to absorb
cooking odors.
It is fitted in the canopy above the
grease filter.
OdorFree Charcoal Filters are available
from your Miele dealer or from Miele
Service. See "Technical data" for the

Installation recommendations
– We also recommend a distance of at
least 25 1/2" (650 mm) above electric
cooktops to provide more workspace
and easier cooking under the hood.
Drilling diagram for wall
mounting
 When drilling, please follow the
directions contained on the
accompanying installation sheet.
– When selecting an installation height,
always take the user height into
consideration. Users should have
ample space to work comfortably on
the cooktop and reach the ventilation
hood controls with ease.
– Please note that the greater the
distance from the cooktop, the less
effective the hood is at drawing in the
cooking vapors.
– To achieve optimal vapor extraction,
make sure that the hood covers the
cooktop. The hood should be
positioned centrally over the
cooktop, not to the side or rear.
– The cooktop should be no wider than
the hood. Preferably, it should be
narrower.
– The mounting area must be easily
accessible. The ventilation hood
should be easy to reach and
disassemble in case a service call is
necessary. This should be taken into
consideration when planning the
position of cupboards, shelves,
ceilings or decorative elements in the
vicinity of the ventilation hood.
 When installing a custom back wall
with pre-drilled holes, please refer to
the drilling distances in the drawing
above (screws  3/16" (5 mm)).
37
Installation
Plywood backing
The majority of the weight of the
installed ventilation system will be
supported by the lower retaining
plate. It must be firmly attached to
the stud framing behind the drywall.
If studs are not available in the
required locations, a plywood
backing (min. ½" (13 mm) thick)
spanning at least two studs must be
installed.
Failure to adequately support the
weight as stated may result in the
ventilation system falling off the wall,
causing personal injury and property
damage.
If plywood backing is not needed,
proceed to the included "Installation
diagram".
To install a plywood backing
 Determine and mark the location of
the retaining plate  for the canopy
as outlined on the "Installation
diagram".
38
 Make a cutting line 3" (76 mm) above
and 3" (76 mm) below the outline of
the retaining plate.
 Find the studs  to the left and right
of the mounting location by tapping
the wall or using a stud finder.
 Mark a vertical cutting line along the
center of each stud.
CAUTION: When cutting or drilling
into the wall or ceiling, do not
damage electrical wiring and other
hidden utilities.
 Remove the drywall between the
cutting lines and replace it with
plywood  of a matching thickness
(min. ½" (13 mm) thick). Tape the
joints and refinish the wall.
 Proceed to the enclosed "Installation
diagram" to complete the installation.
Exhaust duct
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.
Please read and follow the
"IMPORTANT SAFETY
INSTRUCTIONS" to reduce the risk
of personal injury. Follow all local
building codes when installing the
hood.
 Only use smooth pipes or flexible
duct hoses made from nonflammable materials for exhaust
ductwork.
 To achieve the greatest possible air
extraction with the lowest noise
levels, please note the following:
– The diameter of the exhaust duct
should not be less than 6" (150 mm).
– If flat exhaust ducts are used, the
cross section should not be smaller
than that of the exhaust connector.
– The exhaust duct should be as short
and straight as possible.
– If elbows are needed, make sure they
have a large radius.
– Make sure that all connections are
secure and airtight.
Remember that any constriction of
the airflow will reduce extraction
performance and increase operating
noise.
 If the exhaust duct is to be routed
through an outside wall, we
recommend installing a telescopic
wall vent or a rooftop vent (available
as an optional accessory).
 If the exhaust air is to be conducted
into a vent flue, the intake piece must
be aligned with the flow direction of
the flue.
 When installing the exhaust duct
horizontally, you must slope it away
from the source by at least 1 cm per
meter (3/8" per 3 1/4'). This ensures
that condensate cannot drain back
into the ventilation hood.
 If the exhaust duct is to be routed
through rooms, ceiling space etc., the
temperatures in these different areas
may differ greatly, which means that
the problem of condensation will
need to be addressed. The exhaust
duct will need to be insulated.
– The exhaust duct itself must not be
kinked or compressed.
39
Exhaust duct
Condensate trap
Reducing Collar
(optional accessory)
In addition to insulating the exhaust
duct, we recommend installing a
condensate trap to collect and
evaporate any condensate which might
accumulate.
Condensate traps are available for
exhaust ducts with a diameter of 5"
(125 mm) or 6" (150 mm).
 When installing a condensate trap,
make sure that it is positioned
vertically and, if possible, directly
above the hood outlet duct collar.
The arrow on the housing indicates
the direction of airflow.
40
If you would like to reduce the
environmental impact of your ventilation
system by limiting the CFM output the
Reducing Collar can be installed. It
reduces the air flow to less than 400
CFM. Check local building codes for
max. CFM requirements.
 Push the Reducing Collar on the
exhaust port of the fan.
 Push the exhaust hose over it.
 Fix both with a hose clamp.
