be guaranteed in the room in order to prevent the backflow of
exhaust gas. The kitchen must have an opening directly with the
open air in order to guarantee the entry of clean air.
* The minimum distance is 750mm from the cooker hood to a gas
hob, and is 650mm to an electric hob. If the installation instructions
for gas/electric hobs specify a greater distance the same must be
taken into account.

2. Fix the appliance to the wall and align it in horizontal position to
the wall units.
3. When the appliance has been adjusted, fix the hood using the
screws A. For the various installations use screws and screw anchors

chimney. If your appliance is to be installed in the ducting version or
in the version with external motor, prepare the air exhaust opening.

DUCT FIXING
Caution: To reduce the risk of fire, recommend use aluminium ductwork.
1. Attach an adequate length of φ150mm round duct into the recessed
area of the air outlet adapter.
2. The duct has to be secured using two screws from two sides of the air
outlet adapter. Make sure the duct is fixed well on.
DESCRIPTION/CONNECTIONS
Ducted mode air exhaust system
The hood draws the cooking fumes saturated with fumes and odor through
the grease filters and expels it to the outside through an outlet pipe.
9
Caution: To reduce the risk of fire, use metal
ductwork only.
1. Decide where the ductwork will run
between the hood and the outside.
2. A straight, short duct run will allow the
hood to perform most efficiently.
3. Long duct runs, elbows, and transitions
will reduce the performance of the hood.
Use as few of them as possible. Larger
ducting
may
be
required
for
best
performance with longer duct runs.
4. Attach an adequate length of φ150mm round duct to the air outlet
adapter. Let the exhaust run for a minimum of 1 meter in Straight line in
between bends / elbows for better efficiency.
5. The air must not be discharge into a flue that is used for exhausting
fumes from appliances burning gas or other fuels" "Regulations
concerning the discharge of air have to be fulfilled.
6. Install a roof/wall cap. Connect round metal ductwork to cap and
work back towards hood location. Use duct tape to seal the joints
between ductwork sections.
Electrical Connection
* Electrical wiring must be done by a qualified person(s) in accordance with
all applicable codes and standards. Turn off electrical power at service
entrance before wiring.
* If the supply cord is damaged, it must be replaced by the manufacturer, its
service agent or similarly qualified persons in order to avoid a hazard.
* Do not use the plug and an extension cord other than the ones initially
supplied with the hood.
* The earthing of this hood is compulsory. Do not remove ground prong of
the plug.

water and neutral liquid detergent, leaving to soak.
*Rinse thoroughly with warm water and leave to dry.
*The filters may also be washed in the dishwasher.

HOOD CLEANING
Glass and aluminum are two of the easiest materials to keep clean.
Occasional care will help preserve its fine appearance.
12
Cleaning tips:
* Hot water with soap or detergent is all that is usually needed.
* Follow all cleaning by rinsing with clear water. Wipe dry with a clean, soft
cloth to avoid water marks.
* For discolorations or deposits that persist, use a non-scratching household
cleanser or stainless steel polishing powder with a little water and a soft
cloth.
* For stubborn cases use a plastic scouring pad or soft bristle brush together
with cleanser and water. Rub lightly in direction of polishing lines or “grind”
of the aluminum finish. Avoid using too much pressure that may mar the
surface.
* Do not allow deposits to remain for long periods of time.
* Do not use ordinary steel wool or steel brushes. Small bits of steel may
adhere to the surface causing rust.
* Do not allow salt solutions, disinfectants, bleaches, or cleaning compounds
to remain in contact with aluminum finish for extended periods. Many of
these compounds contain chemicals that may be harmful. Rinse with water
after exposure and wipe dry with a clean cloth.
* Painted surfaces should be cleaned with warm water and mild detergent
only.
