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 cooker hood 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 hobs,
cookers 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.
7
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 cooker hood 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 cooker hood 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 (registered with an official gas safety
body in accordance with national safety regulations, GasSafe in
the UK) must be sought.
The cooker hood 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.
8
Warning and Safety instructions
Correct use
 Never use an open flame beneath the cooker hood. To avoid the
danger of fire, do not flambé or grill over an open flame.
When switched on, the cooker hood could draw flames into the filter.
Fat deposits could ignite, presenting a fire hazard.
 The cooker hood can become damaged when exposed to
excessive heat.
– When using the cooker hood over a gas hob, 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 cooker hood on when a cooking zone is in use,
otherwise condensation may collect in the hood, 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
cooker hood on fire.
 Do not use the cooker hood 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 cooker hood can get very hot during cooking due to heat
rising from the hob.
Do not touch the housing or the grease filters until the cooker hood
has cooled down.
9
Warning and Safety instructions
Correct installation
 Refer to the cooker or hob manufacturer's instructions as to
whether a cooker hood may be operated above the cooker/hob.
 Safety regulations prohibit the fitting of a cooker hood over solid
fuel stoves.
 Insufficient distance between the cooker or hob and the cooker
hood can result in damage to the hood.
The minimum safety distances between the top of the cooker or hob
and the bottom of the cooker hood given in the "Installation" section
must be maintained, unless the hob manufacturer states that a
greater distance is required.
If more than one cooking appliance is fitted beneath the cooker
hood, and they have different minimum safety distances to the
cooker hood, select the greater distance.
 The distances given in "Installation" must be observed when
fitting the cooker hood.
 Exhaust ducting must be of non-inflammable material. Suitable
material is available from Miele specialist dealers or the Miele Spares
Dept.
 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.
10
Warning and Safety instructions
Accessories
 Only use genuine original Miele accessories with this appliance.
Using accessories from other manufacturers will invalidate the
guarantee, and Miele cannot accept liability.
11
Caring for the environment
Disposal of the packing
material
The packaging is designed to protect
the appliance from damage during
transportation. The packaging materials
used are selected from materials which
are environmentally friendly for disposal
and should be recycled.
Recycling the packaging reduces the
use of raw materials in the
manufacturing process and also
reduces the amount of waste in landfill
sites.
Disposal of your old appliance
Electrical and electronic appliances
often contain valuable materials. They
also 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. Please
do not therefore dispose of it with your
household waste.
Please dispose of it at your local
community waste collection / recycling
centre or contact your Dealer for
advice.
Ensure that it presents no danger to
children while being stored for disposal.
12
Modes of operation
Depending on the model of the cooker
hood, the following options are
available:
Air extraction
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 cooker
hood is switched off.
When the cooker hood 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 in the
exhaust socket in the motor unit.
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 cooker hoods)
Cooker hoods 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 cooker hood is installed. The
external motor is linked to the cooker
hood via a connection cable and then
operated using the controls on the
cooker hood.

– 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.
18
Important for appliances with
stainless steel surfaces
(This information 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 (available from Miele)
can also be used. Follow the
manufacturer’s instructions on the
packaging.
Special instructions for appliances
with lacquered housing
(Special order finish)
 Please 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
Important for the controls
Do not leave soiling on the controls
for any length of time.
Otherwise they may suffer
discolouration or damage.
Remove soiling straight away.
 Please observe the general notes on
cleaning earlier in this section.
Do not use stainless steel cleaning
agents on the controls.
Important for appliances with glass
surfaces
 Glass surfaces 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
cooker hood.
 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.
Removing the grease filters
The grease filters can fall out when
you are handling them,
This can result in damage to the
filters and the hob below.
Make sure you hold the filters
securely at all times when handling
them.
 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.
19
Cleaning and care
Cleaning the grease filters by hand
After cleaning
 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 "neat" washing up
liquid.
 After cleaning, leave the filters to dry
on an absorbent surface before
replacing them.
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
 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.
 Replace the grease filters, making
sure that the locking clips are facing
down towards the hob.
– powder cleaners, cream cleaners
– aggressive all-purpose cleaning
agents or spray cleaners for grease
– oven sprays
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.
 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.
20
 If a grease filter is inadvertently
replaced upside down, insert a small
screwdriver blade into the slit to
disengage the clip.
Cleaning and care
Charcoal filter
When to change the charcoal filter
If the cooker hood is connected for
recirculation, a charcoal filter must be
inserted in addition to the grease filter.
This is designed to absorb cooking
odours.
 Always replace the charcoal filter
when it no longer absorbs kitchen
odours effectively.
It should, however be replaced at
least every 6 months.
Replacement charcoal filters can be
obtained from your Miele retailer or via
the internet at www.miele-shop.com.
See back cover for contact details, and
"Technical data" for type and reference
number.
Disposing of the charcoal filter
 Used charcoal filters can be disposed
of with the normal household waste.
Fitting and replacing the charcoal
filter
 Before fitting or replacing a charcoal
filter, the grease filters must first be
taken out (see previous section for
instructions on how to do this).
 Take the charcoal filter out of its
packaging.
 Insert the charcoal filter into the back
of the charcoal filter frame, then push
up into the frame at the front.
 Replace the grease filters.
21
Cleaning and care
Changing a halogen lamp
Note that halogen lamps become
very hot when in use.
They can cause burns even after
being switched off for some time!
Allow them to cool down for a few
minutes before changing them.
 Disconnect the cooker hood from the
mains electrical supply before
replacing the lamp (see "Warning and
Safety instructions").
 To access the halogen lamp, press

Installation recommendations
– When deciding on the safety
distance between the hob and
cooker hood, please note that a
distance of 650 mm above electric
cookers/hobs may be preferable to
give more working space under the
hood.
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 hood most often. They
should have sufficient space to work
comfortably at the hob, and be able
to reach the hood controls with ease.
– Please be aware that if positioned
too high, extraction will be inefficient.
– To achieve optimum vapour
extraction, the cooker hood must
cover the hob. It should be
positioned centrally over the hob, not
to the side.
– The hob should be no wider than the
cooker hood, and if possible, it
should be narrower.
– The installation area must be easily
accessible. The cooker hood 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 cooker hood.
28
 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).
*The dimension for the middle wall
bracket is variable. It will depend on the
position of the wall vent and the socket.
It should be set as low as possible.
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
cooker hood 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 essential that the "Warning and
Safety" instructions are observed.
The cooker hood should be installed
according to local and national
building regulations. Seek approval
from the building inspector where
necessary.
– The exhaust ducting should be as
short and straight as possible.
– Only use wide radius bends.
– The exhaust duct must not be kinked
or compressed.
– Ensure that all connections are
strong and airtight.
Remember that any constriction of
the air flow 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.
 Use smooth or flexible ducting made
from approved non-flammable
materials for exhaust ducting.
 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 most efficient air
extraction with the lowest noise
levels, please note the following:
– To ensure efficient air extraction, the
diameter of the exhaust ducting
should not be less than 150 mm.
– If flat ducting is being used, the cross
section must not be smaller than the
cross sectional area of the exhaust
connection.
 If the exhaust air is to be ducted into
a vent flue, the ducting must be
directed in the flow direction of the
flue.
 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 appliance.
 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
29
Connection for air extraction
will need to be addressed. The
exhaust ducting will need to be
suitably insulated.
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
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
exhaust connection.
The arrow on the housing indicates
the direction of air-flow.
30
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.
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 hood . 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.
