recommended minimum safety
distances between a Miele cooktop and
the hood:
– 22" (55 cm) above electric cooktops,
– 26" (65 cm) above gas cooktops,
– 26" (65 cm) above an open grill.
If local building codes require a greater
safety distance, follow their
requirement.
For non-Miele cooking appliances
maintain the safety distances
recommended by the appliance
manufacturer in their instructions.
If there is more than one appliance
beneath the hood and they have
different minimum safety distances
always select the greater distance.
Be careful not to damage hidden
electrical wiring or plumbing when
cutting or drilling into the wall or ceiling.
Do not use an extension cord to
connect the appliance to electricity.
Extension cords do not guarantee the
required safety of the appliance, (e.g.
danger of overheating).

6
Any fittings, sealant, or materials
used to install the ductwork must
be made of approved non-flammable
materials.
Never connect an exhaust hood to
an active chimney, dryer vent, vent
flue, or room ventilating ductwork. Seek
professional advice before connecting
an exhaust hood vent to an existing,
inactive chimney or vent flue.
Ducted fans must always be
vented outdoors.
Make sure that the airflow in the
room is sufficient for combustion
and exhausting of all non-electric
heating appliances (water heaters, gas
cooktops, gas ovens, etc.), otherwise
backdrafts may occur. Follow the
heating manufacturer’s guidelines and
safety standards or those published by
the National Fire Protection Association
(NFPA), or the American Society for
Heating, Refrigeration and Air
Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE).
If in doubt, consult an experienced
professional.
Functional description
The ventilation hood offers two modes
of operation:
. . . Air extraction:
. . . Recirculation mode:
The air is drawn in and cleaned by the
grease filters and directed outside.
Air is drawn through the grease filters
and active charcoal filters. The filtered
air is then recirculated back into the
kitchen through a vent at the top of the
hood’s chimney.
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 flap blowing the
inside air and cooking odors outside.
The active charcoal filters may be
purchased from your Miele dealer or
Miele’s Technical Service Department.
Before using the hood in
recirculation mode, ensure that the
active charcoal filters are in place,
see "Cleaning and Care".

Cleaning and care
Grease filters
Cleaning the grease filters
The reusable metal grease filters
remove solid particles from the vented
kitchen air (grease, dust, etc).
^ Clean the filters:
The grease filters should be cleaned
every 3-4 weeks or whenever the
grease filter indicator lights.
A dirty filter is a fire hazard.
– by hand: use a scrub brush in warm
water with a mild detergent.
– in a dishwasher: place the filters
vertically and diagonally in the lower
basket. If necessary adjust the upper
basket. Make sure that the spray arm
can rotate freely.
Depending on the detergent,
cleaning the grease filters in a
dishwasher may cause permanent
discoloration of the filter surface.
Performance of the filter will not be
affected by this discoloration.
^ After cleaning, leave the filters on a
towel to air dry.
^ While the filters are removed, clean
any dirt or grease from the filter
casing to prevent the risk of fire.
^ To remove the grease filters release
the latch. Holding carefully, lower and
remove the filter.

Installation
Installing the joystick
Joystick extension
The joystick can be extended for an
easier reach.
^ Insert the lower half of the desired
joystick into the socket, loosely
secure it in place with the included
screw and spring washer.
The screws have different lengths.
Make sure the respective screw for
the desired joystick is used.
^ Turn the printed part of the joystick so
that the m-symbol faces front.
^ Attach the lower part of the joystick to
the extension with a spring washer.
Turn the m-symbol to the front and
screw in place with an allen wrench
while using a wrench to counter the
joystick base.
^ Place a spring washer between the
joystick base and the extension.
Tighten the extension by hand while
countering the joystick base with a
wrench.
^ Tighten the screw with an allen
wrench. At the same time counter the
joystick with a wrench.
33
Installation
Electrical connection
Before connecting the appliance to
power read the "Important Safety
Instructions".
^ Plug in the power cord.
^ Before using the appliance remove
the grease filters and remove the
protective foil from the filter frame.
Insert the grease filters back into
place.

Air extraction
Danger of toxic fumes!
Gas cooking appliances release
carbon monoxide that can be
harmful or fatal if inhaled. The
exhaust gases extracted by the
hood should be vented outside of
the building only.
Do not terminate the exhaust
ducts in attics, garages,
crawlspaces, etc.
– The extraction ducting should be as
short and straight as possible, and
the number of sharp bends should
be minimized.
– Only use wide radius bends. Tight
bends reduce the air flow of the
hood.
– Use smooth or flexible pipes made
from approved non-flammable
materials for exhaust ducting.
– 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 Miele Telescopic Wall
Vent can be used.
– For most efficient air extraction, the
diameter of the ductwork should not
be less than 5" (125 mm).
Noise levels of the hood will increase
if flat ducts or round ducts of less
than 5" (125 mm) in diameter are
used.
Only reduce the diameter of the
ducting if absolutely necessary, e.g.
where narrower ducting has already
been installed.
WARNING
To reduce the risk of fire, only use
metal ductwork.
CAUTION
To reduce risk of fire and to properly
exhaust air, be sure to duct air
outside. Do not vent exhaust air into
spaces within walls or ceilings or
into attics, crawl spaces, or garages.
– If the exhaust is ducted into an
inactive flue, the air must be expelled
parallel to the flow direction of the
flue.
35
Air extraction
Never connect an exhaust hood to
an active chimney, dryer vent, 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.
When installing a condensate trap,
ensure that it is positioned vertically
and if possible directly above the
exhaust outlet.
