7
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 rangehood 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 cooktops or
ovens which draw air in from the room and duct exhaust gases out
through a chimney or extraction ducting.
The appliance draws air in from the room in which it is installed and
from neighbouring rooms. This applies to extraction mode and
recirculation mode with a recirculation box installed outside the
room. If there is insufficient air, an underpressure will occur. The
heating appliance may 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.
8
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 extractor 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 and outside wall vents, or by other technical
measures, such as ensuring that the extractor 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
must be sought.
If the rangehood is being operated in recirculation mode, a heating
appliance which draws on air within the room must not be used at
the same time.
9
Warning and Safety instructions
Correct use
~ Never use an open flame beneath the rangehood. To avoid the
danger of fire, do not flambé or grill over an open flame.
When switched on, the rangehood could draw flames into the filter.
Fat particles drawn into the rangehood present a fire hazard.
~ The rangehood can become damaged when exposed to
excessive heat from a cooktop.
– When using the rangehood over a gas cooktop, 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.
– Use pots and pans that are the appropriate size for the cooking
zone being used.
– Control the flame so that it does not spread out beyond the sides
of the pan.
– Do not allow the pans to overheat (e.g. when using a wok).
~ Always switch the rangehood on when a cooking zone is in use,
otherwise condensation may collect in the rangehood, 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 rangehood on fire.
10
Warning and Safety instructions
~ Do not use the rangehood 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 cleaned regularly or changed as
appropriate.
Saturated filters are a fire hazard.
~ The rangehood can get very hot during cooking due to heat rising
from the cooktop.
Do not touch the housing or the grease filters until the rangehood
has cooled down.
~ Do not use a steam cleaning appliance to clean this appliance.
Pressurised steam could reach the electrical components and
cause a short circuit.
Correct installation
~ Check with the manufacturer of your cooking appliance whether it
is safe to install a rangehood above it.
~ The minimum safety distances between the top of the cooktop
and the bottom of the rangehood given in the "Appliance
dimensions" section of this booklet must be maintained, unless the
cooktop manufacturer states that a greater safety distance is
required.
If more than one cooking appliance is fitted beneath the rangehood,
and they have different minimum safety distances to the rangehood,
select the greater distance.
~ Safety regulations prohibit the fitting of a rangehood over solid
fuel stoves.
11
Warning and Safety instructions
~ All ducting, pipework and fittings must be of non-flammable
material. These can be obtained from Miele or from builders'
merchants.
~ 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.
Accessories
~ Use only Miele Original spare parts. If spare parts or accessories
from other manufacturers are used, the warranty will be invalidated,
and Miele cannot accept liability.

Caring for the environment
Disposal of the packing
material
Disposal of your old appliance
or machine
The transport and protective packing
has been selected from materials which
are environmentally friendly for disposal
and can normally be recycled.
Electrical and electronic appliances /
machines often 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 or machine. Therefore,
please do not dispose of your old
machine or appliance with your
household waste.
Ensure that any plastic wrappings,
bags, etc. are disposed of safely and
kept out of the reach of babies and
young children. Danger of suffocation.
Rather than just throwing these
materials away, please ensure they are
offered for recycling.
Please dispose of it at your local
community waste collection / recycling
centre and ensure that it presents no
danger to children while being stored
for disposal.
It should be unplugged or disconnected
from the mains electricity supply by a
competent person.
The plug must be rendered useless
and the cable cut off directly behind the

15
Description of the functions
The rangehood works with
. . . air recirculation:
. . . air extraction:
(available as an optional extra with a
conversion kit and charcoal filter: see
"Technical Data")
The air is drawn in and cleaned by the
grease filters and directed outside.
If the on-site ventilation system does
not have a non-return flap, a
non-return flap is supplied with the
appliance. It must be fitted in the
exhaust socket in the motor unit.
Having a non-return flap fitted in the
ducting ensures that air, once ducted
to the outside, cannot get back into the
room again.
The flap is closed when the rangehood
is switched off.
When the rangehood is switched on,
the non-return flap opens for the
cooking vapours to be blown directly
outside.
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
through grilles in the top of the
rangehood extension piece.
Before using the rangehood in
recirculation mode, ensure that the
charcoal filter is in place. See
"Cleaning and care".
. . . an external motor:
(Models ...EXT)
The EXT models are designed to be
connected to an external motor located
outside the room.
The external motor is connected to the
rangehood by means of a control cable,
and is operated by the controls on the
rangehood.
16
Description of the functions
Con|ctivity 2.0
Automatic control of the rangehood
This rangehood is fitted with a
communication module. It enables the
automatic control of the rangehood
depending on the operating status of a
Miele induction cooktop.
The cooktop transmits information
about its operating status to the
rangehood via remote control.
– When the cooktop is switched on,
the cooktop lighting switches on
independently and, after a short time,
the rangehood fan also switches on.
– The rangehood automatically selects
the power level during cooking. The
power level depends on the number
of switched on cooking zones and
their selected power settings.
– After switching the cooktop off, the
fan and the cooktop lighting will
switch off automatically after a
pre-selected period of time.
Detailed information on this function
can be found in "Operation".
For communication to take place, the
cooktop must be fitted with a
Con|ctivity 2.0 stick a.
The Con|ctivity 2.0 stick for the
cooktop is supplied with this
rangehood. Please refer to the
Installation instructions for the
Con@ctivity 2.0 stick to check whether
connection is possible.
In order to be able to utilise the
Con|ctivity 2.0 function, radio contact
between the cooktop and the
rangehood must first be established
(see "Activating Con|ctivity 2.0").
17
Operation (automatic operation)
If Con|ctivity 2.0 is activated, the
rangehood always operates in automatic operation (see "Activating
Con|ctivity 2.0").
To operate the rangehood manually,
see "Cooking without Con|ctivity 2.0".
Cooking with Con|ctivity 2.0
(automatic operation)
Examples of fan power levels 1 to 4 (IS)
^ Switch on the cooking zone at the
required setting.
Reaction time
The cooktop lighting on the rangehood
switches on.
After a few seconds, the fan switches
on briefly on power level 2 and then it
changes to level 1.
The rangehood automatically selects
the power level during cooking. The
power level depends on the number of
switched on cooking zones and their
selected power settings.
^ If you increase a power setting on the
cooktop, or switch on more cooking
zones, the rangehood switches to a
higher power level.
^ The power level on the rangehood
adjusts accordingly when the power
settings on the cooktop are reduced
or cooking zones are switched off.
The rangehood's power level depends
on the entire switched on power of the
cooktop.
18
The rangehood reacts with a slight
delay. This is because changing the
power setting on the cooktop does not
immediately result in more or few
vapours.
Because the cooktop sends information
to the rangehood in intervals, this can
also result in delays.
The reaction occurs within a few
seconds or a few minutes.
Operation (automatic operation)
Searing process
After cooking
^ If you switch a cooking zone on at the
highest power setting and switch to a
lower setting after approx. 60 to 90
seconds*, a searing process is
detected.
(*60 seconds to 5 minutes on a
HiLight cooktop.)
^ When the cooktop is switched off, the
rangehood fan power level is
gradually lowered until it is finally
switched off.
This helps to neutralise any lingering
vapours or odours in the air.
The rangehood switches on and, after
switching to a lower cooktop setting,
then switches to power level 3 and
remains at this level for approx.
5 minutes.
The fan power level is then determined
by the Con|ctivity 2.0 function.
^ You can also manually select a fan
power level before it is determined by
the Con|ctivity 2.0 function.
– The fan immediately switches from
the IS power level directly to power
level 3.
– If the fan is operating at power level
3, it will switch to power level 3 after
approx. 1 minute.
– From power level 2, the fan switches
to power level 1 after approx.
2 minutes.
– After 2 minutes on power level 1, the
fan switches off completely.
– After a further 30 seconds, the
lighting will go out.
The cooking process is now finished.
19
Operation (automatic operation)
Temporarily leaving automatic
operation
^ During cooking you can temporarily
leave automatic operation if you
– manually select another fan power
level, or
– manually switch off the rangehood,
or
– activate the run-on option "–" on
the rangehood.
The fan switches off after the
pre-selected run-on time.
The light remains on.
The rangehood functions can now be
operated manually (see "Cooking
without Con|ctivity 2.0").
^ The rangehood returns to automatic
operation if
– you have manually selected a fan
power level and then not altered any
settings on the rangehood for
approx. 5 minutes, or
– the manually selected fan power
level is the same as the automatic
one, or
– the rangehood's fan and the cooktop
are switched off for at least 30
seconds.
The next time the cooktop is
switched on, automatic operation is
started.
20
^ If you want to operate the rangehood
manually for an entire cooking
process, switch on the fan of the
rangehood before switching on the
cooktop.
If the rangehood and the cooktop are
switched off for at least 30 seconds,
the next time the cooktop is switched
on automatic operation is started.
Operation (manual operation)
Cooking without Con|ctivity 2.0
(manual operation)
A condition of manual operation is that
Con|ctivity 2.0 is not activated.
However, manual operation is
temporarily possible even if Con|ctivity
2.0 is activated (see "Temporarily
leaving automatic operation").
To switch the fan on s
^ Touch the On/Off sensor s.
Run-on function "5¢15"
It is advisable to leave the fan running
for a few minutes after cooking has
finished to neutralise any lingering
vapours and odours in the air.
The run-on function offers the possibility
of automatically switching off the fan
after a pre-selected time.
^ After cooking has finished, touch the
run-on option sensor ¢ whilst the fan
is still running:
The fan will come on at power level 2.
– Once: The fan will switch off
after 5 minutes (5 ¢ lights up).
Selecting a power level
– Twice: The fan will switch off
after 15 minutes (¢15 lights up).
Depending on the intensity of the
cooking vapours, levels 1 to 3 are
usually sufficient for normal cooking.
^ Select the power level you require by
touching the 1, 2 or 3 sensors.
Intensive setting
^ For short periods of cooking food
with intensive vapours and a strong
aroma, e.g. when searing meat, you
may wish to select setting IS, the
Intensive setting.
^ If you touch the run-on sensor ¢
again, the fan remains on (5 ¢15
goes out).

21
Operation (manual operation)
Power Management System
The Power Management System
contributes to saving energy.
It ensures that the fan automatically
switches to a lower power level and that
the lighting switches off.
– If the Intensive setting is selected,
the rangehood switches to power
level 3 after 5 minutes, level 2 after
two hours, and level 1 after a further
30 minutes. After another 30 minutes,
the fan will switch off altogether.
– If fan power levels 2 or 3 are
selected, the rangehood switches to
the level below after two hours and
then lower again in 30-minute steps
until finally switching off.
– If level 1 is selected, the fan switches
off after two hours.
– Cooktop lighting will automatically
switch off after 12 hours.

25
Cleaning and care
,Before any cleaning or
maintenance work is carried out,
disconnect the rangehood from the
mains electricity supply (see
"Warning and Safey instructions").
Housing
General notes
The surfaces and controls are
susceptible to scratches and
abrasion. Please observe the
following cleaning instructions.
^ All external surfaces and controls can
be cleaned using warm water with a
small amount of washing-up liquid
applied with a well wrung-out soft
sponge or cloth. Ensure water does
not get in behind the controls.
^ Wipe the surfaces dry using a soft
cloth.
^ Glass surfaces can also be cleaned
with a proprietary glass cleaner.
Do not use:
– cleaning agents containing soda,
acids, chlorides or solvents,
– abrasive cleaning agents, e.g.
powder cleaners or cream cleaners,
and abrasive sponges, e.g. pot
scourers or sponges which have
been previously used with abrasive
cleaning agents. These will damage
the surface material.
– sharp metal tools,
– oven sprays.
26
Important for appliances with
stainless steel surfaces
Stainless steel surfaces can be cleaned
with a proprietary non-abrasive
cleaning agent designed specifically
for use on stainless steel.
The Original Miele care product for
stainless steel is recommended for
preventing resoiling and can be
purchased from Miele or at
www.miele-shop.com (depending on
country). Apply sparingly with a soft
cloth following the instructions on the
packaging.
Important for appliances with
lacquered housing
It is very difficult to clean this type of
surface without causing minor marks on
the surface material.
This can become particularly
noticeable with darker colours and if
there is halogen lighting in the kitchen.
Cleaning and care
Grease filters
Cleaning the grease filters by hand
The re-usable metal grease filters in the
appliance remove solid particles
(grease, dust, etc.) from kitchen
vapours, preventing soiling of the
rangehood.
^ Clean the filters with a soft nylon
brush in a mild solution of hot water
and a little washing-up liquid.
Do not use undiluted washing-up
liquid.
The grease filters should be cleaned at
the latest when the grease filter sensor
[ lights up.
Do not use:
The grease filters should be cleaned
regularly (at least every 3–4 weeks) to
avoid hardening of collected grease as
this will make cleaning difficult.
,An oversaturated filter is a fire
hazard.
– cleaning agents containing
descaling agents,
– powder cleaners, cream cleaners or
abrasive all-purpose cleaning
agents,
– oven sprays.
Cleaning the grease filters in the
dishwasher
^ Place the filters as upright as
possible in the lower basket. Ensure
the spray arm is not obstructed.
^ Do not wash at more than 65 °C. If a
Miele dishwasher is being used,
select the Sensor wash programme.
^ Use a mild dishwasher detergent.
^ To take out the grease filters, release
the locking clip on the filter, lower the
filter approx. 45°, unhook it at the
back and remove it.
Depending on the detergent used,
cleaning the filters in a dishwasher
can cause permanent discolouration
to the filter surfaces.
However, this will not affect the
functioning of the filter in any way.
To avoid damaging the filters or the
cooktop below, make sure you hold
the filters securely at all times when
handling them.
27
Cleaning and care
^ After cleaning, leave the filters to dry
on an absorbent surface before
refitting them.
^ 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.
^ Refit the grease filters, making sure
that the locking clips are facing down
towards the cooktop.
Resetting the operating hours
counter for the grease filters
After cleaning, the operating hours
counter needs to be reset.
^ Whilst the fan is switched on, touch
the grease filter sensor [ for approx.
3 seconds until only the 1 is flashing.
The grease filter sensor [ light will
go out.
If the grease filters are cleaned before
the operating hours counter has
reached its maximum:
^ Touch the grease filter sensor [ for
approx. 6 seconds until only the 1
sensor is flashing.
^ If a grease filter is inadvertently
refitted upside down, insert a small
screwdriver blade into the slit to
disengage the clip.
28
Cleaning and care
Fitting and replacing the
charcoal filter
If the rangehood is connected for
recirculation, a charcoal filter must be
inserted in addition to the grease filters.
This is designed to absorb cooking
odours and is fitted in the canopy
above the grease filters.
Replacement charcoal filters can be
obtained from Miele or via the internet
at www.miele-shop.com (depending on
country).
See back cover for contact details, and
"Technical data" for type and reference
number.
– the charcoal filter sensor — lights up
or
– it is no longer effective in absorbing
kitchen odours.
It should, however, be replaced at least
every 6 months.
Used charcoal filters can be disposed
of with the normal household waste.
Resetting the operating hours
counter for the charcoal filter
After replacing, the operating hours
counter needs to be reset.
^ Before fitting or replacing the
charcoal filter, the grease filters must
first be taken out (see previous
section for instructions on how to do
this).
^ Whilst the fan is switched on, touch
the charcoal filter sensor — for
approx. 3 seconds until only the 1
sensor is flashing.
The charcoal filter sensor — light will
go out.
^ Unwrap the charcoal filter from its
packaging and insert it in the
charcoal filter frame.
If the charcoal filter is replaced before
the operating hours counter has
reached its maximum:
^ Touch the charcoal filter sensor — for
approx. 6 seconds until only the 1
sensor is flashing.
^ Refit the grease filters.

31
Appliance dimensions
– When deciding on the safety
distance between the cooktop and
rangehood, please note that a
distance of 650 mm above electric
cooktops may be preferable to give
more working space under the
rangehood.
Drill holes
– Account should also be taken of the
height of the person who will be
using the rangehood most often.
They should have sufficient space to
work comfortably at the cooktop, and
be able to reach the rangehood
controls with ease.
– Please note that if the rangehood is
positioned too high, extraction will be
inefficient.
– If you want the top of the rangehood
to be mounted flush with the ceiling,
make sure there is adequate space
below it for working.
For pre-installation on a back wall, refer
to the drilling distances in the drawing
above (screws ø 5 mm).
If the rangehood is to be mounted
directly to the wall, please refer to the
installation manual for information on
drilling the holes.
32
Installation
Dismantling
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 rangehood 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.
Should the appliance ever need to be
dismantled, follow the installation
instructions in reverse order as
described on the installation sheet.
A lever is supplied to assist with the
removal of the tower.
Installation instructions
See the enclosed Installation sheet for
instructions on how to install this
appliance.

for securing the wall bracket.
,The screws and plugs are
designed for use in solid walls only.
For other types of wall construction,
alternative fixings will be required.
Make sure that the wall is able to
take the weight of the rangehood.
35
Connection for air extraction
Important: To avoid the danger of
toxic fumes, please observe the
Warning and Safety instructions.
This is especially crucial when using
the rangehood at the same time as
another heating appliance which
relies on air from the same room.
The rangehood should be installed
according to local and national
building regulations. Seek approval
from the building inspector where
necessary.
– Only use smooth pipes or flexible
hoses made from non-flammable
materials for the extraction 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 greatest possible air
extraction with the lowest noise level,
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-sectional area must not be
smaller than the cross-sectional area
of the exhaust connection.
If exhaust ducting with a diameter of
less than 150 mm, or if flat ducting is
used, the noise level of the
rangehood will increase and
extraction will be less efficient.
– All ducting, pipework and fittings must
be of non-flammable materials.
– The exhaust ducting should be as
short and straight as possible.
– Only use wide radius bends.
– The exhaust ducting should not be
kinked or compressed.
– Ensure that all connections are
strong and airtight.
36
Connection for air extraction
– Where 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 rangehood.
Condensate trap
(optional accessory)
– If the exhaust air is to be ducted into
the open air, the installation of a
telescopic wall vent or roof vent
(available as an optional accessory)
is recommended.
– If the exhaust air is to be ducted into
a vent flue, the ducting must be
directed in the flow direction of the
flue.
Important:
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 will need to
be addressed. The exhaust ducting will
need to be suitably insulated.
For installations in areas where the
exhaust ducting is exposed to cold
temperatures, we recommend
insulating the exhaust ducting and
installing a condensate trap to collect
and evaporate any condensate which
may occur. Condensate traps are
available for C 125 mm or C 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.
Rangehoods designed for use with an
external motor (...EXT models) have an
integrated condensate trap.
37
Connection for air extraction
Silencer
...with air extraction:
(DASD 150, optional accessory)
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 a.
...in recirculation mode:
To achieve even further reductions in
noise levels, a special silencer can be
fitted in the ducting system.
The silencer needs to be positioned
between the exhaust connection and the
directional unit b. 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
c if possible, or if the ducting is long,
above the exhaust connection on the
rangehood d.
In the case of an external motor located
inside the house, fitting a silencer
behind the external motor e reduces
the noise of the motor outside the
house.
In all modes of operation, the most
effective noise reductions are
achieved if two silencers are fitted
one behind the other in the system.
38
Electrical connection
All electrical work should be
undertaken by a suitably qualified
and competent person in strict
accordance with current national
and local safety regulations.
Installation, repairs and other work
by unqualified persons could be
dangerous, for which the
manufacturer cannot be held liable.
