Description of functions
Air extraction
The air is drawn in via the glass or
stainless steel panels and cleaned by
the grease filters. Then the air is
released outdoors.
The hood comes equipped with a
non-return flap. This flap automatically
closes when the hood is turned off so
that no exchange of outside air and
room air can occur. When the hood is
turned on, the air pressure of the
exhaust fan automatically opens the

Cleaning and care
,WARNING
TO REDUCE THE RISK OF
FIRE, ELECTRIC SHOCK, OR
INJURY TO PERSONS,
OBSERVE THE FOLLOWING:
Before cleaning or servicing the
hood, disconnect it from the power
supply, see "Important Safety
Instructions".
Avoid:
– cleaning agents containing soda,
acids or chlorides,
– abrasive cleaning agents
e.g. powder or cream cleansers,
– abrasive sponges, e.g. pot scourers
or sponges which have been
previously used with abrasive
cleaning agents.
– sharp metal scrapers,
,The halogen bulbs are very hot
when in use. They stay hot for some
time after turned off. Use caution,
danger of burns.
Wet cleaning the hot bulbs will
cause damage.
Wait a few minutes after turning
them off before cleaning.
Cleaning the casing
Never use abrasive cleaners,
scouring pads, steel wool or caustic
(oven) cleaners on the hood. They
will damage the surface.
^ All external surfaces and controls can
be cleaned with a mild solution of
warm water and liquid dish soap
applied with a soft sponge.
Do not use too much water when
cleaning the controls. Water could
penetrate the electronics and cause
damage.
^ Wipe dry using a soft cloth.
14
– oven spray.
The following instructions for cleaning
"Stainless steel" surfaces and "Stainless
steel colored controls" should be
followed in addition to the general
"Cleaning the casing" instructions.
Special instructions for appliances
with stainless steel surfaces
(not applicable to the controls)
Stainless steel surfaces can be cleaned
using a non-abrasive stainless steel
cleaner.
To help prevent resoiling, a conditioner
for stainless steel can be applied.
Cleaning and care
Special instructions for glass
surfaces
^ The glass edge can be cleaned
using a household glass cleaner.
Special instructions for appliances
with colored casings
(Special order)
It is very difficult to clean this type of
surface without causing minor marks to
the surface material. This can become
particularly noticeable with darker
colors and if there is halogen lighting in
the kitchen.
Panels and grease filters
The glass or stainless steel panels and
the reusable metal grease filters
remove solid particles from the vented
kitchen air (grease, dust, etc.) and
prevent soiling of the ventilation hood.
Clean the panels and grease filters at
the latest when the grease filter symbol
[ of the timer button comes on.
The grease filters should be cleaned
every 3 - 4 weeks, as the collected
grease hardens over time and makes
cleaning more difficult.
,A dirty filter is a fire hazard!
Special instructions for control
buttons
These controls may become discolored or damaged if not cleaned
regularly.
Do not use a stainless steel cleaner
on these controls.
Support the grease filters and
panels so that they do not fall and
damage the cooktop.
15
Cleaning and care
Cleaning the grease filters
^ Pull the front edge of the panels
down slightly, unhook them at the
back, and take them out.
^ Open the grease filter lock, lower the
grease filter slightly, unhook it at the
back, and remove.
Cleaning the panels by hand
^ Follow the instructions under
"Cleaning the casing".
^ By hand: use a scrub brush with a
solution of warm water and mild dish
soap.
Do not use the pure detergent,
aggressive all purpose cleaners,
oven sprays, abrasive cleaning
agents or limescale removers. They
could damage the filter.
^ In a dishwasher: place the filter
vertically in the lower basket, making
sure that the spray arm is not
blocked.
Use a wash program with a max.
temperature of 150°F (65°C). In a
Miele dishwasher use the "Normal"
program.
Use the recommended amount of
dishwasher detergent. Overuse could
destroy the filter.
Depending on the detergent,
cleaning the grease filters in a
dishwasher may cause permanent
discoloration of the filter surface.
Filter performance will not be
affected by this discoloration.
^ After cleaning, place the filters on a
towel to air dry.
^ While the panels and the filters are
removed, clean any dirt or grease
from the casing. This reduces the risk
of fire.
^ When reinstalling the grease filters,
make sure that the locking clips are
facing down.
16
Cleaning and care
Resetting the grease filter timer
Reset the timer each time you clean the
grease filters.
^ With the fan running, press and hold
the timer button [— for
about 3 seconds, until only the 1 is
flashing.
The grease filter symbol [ goes out.
^ If the filters are incorrectly installed,
insert a small screwdriver into the slit
along its edge to disengage them
from the casing.
If you clean the grease filters before
the operating time elapses:
^ Press and hold the timer button [—
for about 6 seconds, until only the 1
is flashing.
^ Hook the panels onto the support
ledge, lift up the front and push them
into the lock until they engage.

Air extraction
,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.
Exhaust ducting and connections
Use smooth or flexible pipework made
from approved non-flammable
materials for exhaust ducting.
To achieve the most efficient air
extraction and quietest noise levels,
consider the following:
– The diameter of the ductwork should
not be less than 6" (150 mm).
– If flat ducting is used, the cross
section must not be smaller than the
cross section of the ventilation
exhaust.
– The ducting should be as short and
straight as possible.
– Use ductwork with a wide radius.
– The exhaust duct must not be bent
or compressed.
– Make sure all connections are
secure.
– Where the ductwork is horizontal, it
must slope away from the hood at
least 1/8" per foot (1 cm per meter) to
prevent condensation dripping into
the appliance.
– If the exhaust is ducted through an
outside wall, a Telescopic Wall Vent
can be used.
28
Air extraction
Condensate trap
optional accessory
– If the exhaust is ducted into an
inactive flue, the air must be expelled
parallel to the flow direction of the
flue.
Never connect an exhaust hood to
an active chimney, dryer vent, flue,
or room venting ductwork. Seek
professional advice before
connecting an exhaust hood vent to
an existing, inactive chimney or vent
flue.
Important
If the ductwork runs through rooms,
ceilings, garages, etc. where
temperature variations exist, it may
need to be insulated to reduce
condensation.
In some cases, a condensate trap may
also be required to collect and
evaporate any condensate which may
occur. This optional accessory is
available for ducts 5" (125 mm) and 6"
(150 mm) in diameter.
^ When installing a condensate trap,
ensure that it is positioned vertically
and if possible directly above the
exhaust outlet.
If the ventilation system is designed for
an external fan, the condensate trap is
integrated into the hood (series ...EXT
only).
