Safety warnings – For the installer
When installing the cooker hood, make sure you adhere
to the minimum and maximum distances from the cooker
hood base to the cook top surface (as per table on page 6).
Exhaust flue installation: The following rules must be
strictly followed to obtain optimal air extraction.
• Keep exhaust flue short and straight.
• Do not reduce the size or restrict exhaust flue.
• Keep bends in the exhaust flue to a minimum.
• When using flexible flue always install duct with helix
pulled taut to minimise pressure loss.
• Failure to observe these basic instructions will
drastically reduce the performance and increase the
noise levels of the cooker hood.
Exhaust air must not be discharged into a wall cavity,
unless the cavity is designed for that purpose. The exhaust
from the cooker hood must not be discharged into any
heating flue, which may carry combustion products from
other sources.
NOTE: Some installations may require the telescopic
exhaust cover to be cut to length. Cut with sharp tin
snips or a fine-tooth hack saw blade, taking care not to
distort or dent the exhaust cover.
The exhaust from the cooker hood must not be
discharged into any heating flue, which may carry
combustion products from other sources. (Fig. 1)
Exhaust air must not be discharged into a wall
cavity, unless the cavity is designed for the purpose.
There must be adequate ventilation of the room
when the cooker hood is used at the same time as
appliances burning gas or other fuels.
Always cover lit gas burners with pots or pans when
the cooker hood is in use.
Always switch off gas burners before you remove
pots or pans.
Do not leave lit gas burners exposed due to the risk
of fire. (Fig. 2)

BEFORE INSTALLATION
Before the installation of the appliance, record the information
below from the rating plate. The rating plate is on the bottom
of the appliance casing.
1.Using a spirit level mark a vertical centre line on the
wall where the cooker hood is to be positioned, and a
horizontal line at the cooker hood base position (refer to
diagram below).
NOTE: The height of the underside of the hood body must
be a minimum of 600mm* to a maximum height of 800mm.
* If the instructions of the cooktop specify a greater distance than the minimum
above, then that shall be the minimum height for installation.

COOKER HOOD INSTALLATION (CONTinued)
3.Install flue cover wall mounting brackets with suitable
fixings. Install suitable screws for cooker hood mounting
points (to support a total weight of 30kg) to the wall as
marked (Fig. 6).
Depending on the preferred installation/ducting mode,
follow step 5a or 5b below.
5a. Recirculating mode (Fig. 9)
(optional kit AR928RK required)
Using the centre line, secure the recirculating T-piece to
the wall with suitable screws/fixings. Install flexible pipe
between T-piece and the exhaust transition duct. Use
cable ties or suitable duct tape to secure flexible pipe to
T-piece and transition duct (Fig. 11).
NOTE: When installed in recirculating mode, it is
recommended to use a carbon filter (included in
recirculation kit AR928RK) to prevent odours being
emitted back into the room.
5b. Ducted mode (Fig 10.)
The cooker hood has been supplied with a duct transition
piece. Fit 200mm diameter non combustible flue pipe to
the fan transition duct (Fig. 10). Use cable ties or suitable
duct tape to secure flexible pipe to the transition duct.
NOTE: For ducted mode, we recommend extending
flue pipe through the roof to external “roof cowl” to vent
exhaust externally. We do not recommend venting into
ceiling cavity.
NOTE: The 200mm diameter flue is required to achieve
optimum airflow performance and minimise noise.
NOTE: To ensure optimum performance of the cooker
hood, the use of rigid ducting is recommended. The
use of bends should be avoided. Rigid flexible ducting is
suitable, although loose flexible ducting is unacceptable.
All ducting must be fire retardant.

Separate the inner and outer flue covers. Carefully
reassemble the upper and lower flue covers sections by
sliding the inner into the outer flue cover. Carefully lower
the assembled upper and lower flue covers onto the top
of the cooker hood body, and insert the flue cover into
the cooker hood body approximately 5mm. Fix upper flue
cover to the wall mounting bracket with screws supplied.
Ensure that the upper section is extended.
Fig. 17
NOTE: Carefully remove the plastic protective coating,
if present, from the flue covers. Pay particular attention
when removing protective plastic coating from decals.
IMPORTANT!
Care must be taken to ensure the screws (supplied in
accessories bag) are not cross threaded when attaching
the upper flue cover. If installed in recirculating mode,
insert the optional carbon filter (included in recirculation
kit AR928RK). To complete the cooker hood installation,
insert the three filters to the underside of the hood body.
Place back edge of filter into position and push up front
edge so that the filter clips into place.

The Thoughtful Design Innovator.
Do you remember the last time you opened a gift that made you say
“Oh! How did you know? That’s exactly what I wanted!” That’s the kind
of feeling that the designers at Electrolux seek to evoke in everyone who
chooses or uses one of our products. We devote time, knowledge, and
a great deal of thought to anticipating and creating the kind of appliances
that our customers really need and want.
This kind of thoughtful care means innovating with insight. Not design for design’s
sake, but design for the user’s sake. For us, thoughtful design means making
appliances easier to use and tasks more enjoyable to perform, freeing our
customers to experience that ultimate 21st century luxury, ease of mind. Our aim
is to make this ease of mind more available to more people in more parts of their
everyday lives, all over the world. So when we say we’re thinking
of you, you know we mean just that.
The “Thinking of you” promise from Electrolux goes beyond meeting the needs of
today’s consumers. It also means we’re committed to making appliances safe for
the environment—now and for future generations.
Electrolux. Thinking of you.
