RECOMMENDATIONS AND SUGGESTIONS
INSTALLATION
* The manufacturer will not be held liable for any damages resulting from incorrect or
improper installation.
* Please read this instruction manual before installing and using this cooker hood.
Properly keep this instruction manual in a safe place for future reference.
* This cooker hood can be used either in the Ducted Mode (ducting fumes to the
outside) or in the Recirculation Mode (internal recycling). The choice of
modes can
be left to customers.
* Only a qualified and trained service technician can undertake the work of installation
and servicing.
* Check that the mains voltage corresponds to the one indicated on the rating plate
fixed inside the hood.
* Check that the domestic power supply guarantees adequate earthing.
* Do not connect the hood to exhaust ducts carrying combustion fumes (boilers,
fireplaces, etc.)
* If the hood is used in conjunction with non-electrical appliances (e. g. gas burning
appliances), a sufficient degree of ventilation must 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 hobs specify a greater distance,
this must be taken into account.
NOTICE: Considering excessive weight, two or more people are required to install or
move this appliance. Failure to do so can cause physical injuries.
USE
* The cooker hood has been designed only for domestic use to eliminate kitchen
fumes.
* Never use the hood for purposes other than what it has been designed for.
* Never leave high naked flames under the hood when it is in operation.
* Adjust the flame intensity to direct it onto the bottom of the pan only; making sure
that it does not engulf the pan sides.
2
* Deep fat fryer must be continuously monitored during use: overheated oil can burst
into flame.
* The hood should not be used by children or person not instructed in its correct use.
MAINTENANCE
* Proper maintenance of the Range Hood will assure proper performance of the unit.
* Disconnect the hood from the main supply before carrying out any maintenance
work.
* Clean and/or replace aluminum grease filters and activated charcoal filters after
specified period of time.
* Clean the hood using a damp cloth and a neutral liquid detergent.
* DISPOSAL: Do not dispose this product as unsorted municipal waste. Collection of
such waste separately for special treatment is necessary.
WARNING!!
In certain circumstances electrical appliances may be a danger hazard.
* Do not check the status of the filters while the cooker hood is operating.
* Do not touch the light bulbs after appliance use.
* Do not disconnect the appliance with wet hands.
* Avoid free flame, as it is damaging for the filters and a fire hazard.
* Constantly check food frying to avoid that the overheated oil may become a fire
hazard.
* Disconnect the electrical plug prior to any maintenance.
* Children don’t recognize the risks of electrical appliances. Therefore use or keep the
appliance only under supervision of adults and out of the reach from children.
* Don’t use this product outdoor.
* This appliance is not intended for use by persons (including children) with reduced
physical, sensory or mental capabilities, or lack of experience and knowledge, unless
they have been given supervision or instruction concerning use of the appliance by a
person responsible for their safety. Children should be supervised to ensure that they
do not play with the appliance.
* There shall be adequate ventilation of the room when the range hood is used at the
same time as appliances burning gas or other fuels.
* There is a fire risk if cleaning is not carried out in accordance with instructions.
* Do not flambé under the range hood.
3
* The discharge air must not be discharged into a flue which is used for exhausting
fumes from appliances burning gas or other fuels.

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.
5.
Attach an adequate length of
150mm round duct to the air outlet adapter.
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.

HOOD CLEANING
Stainless steel is one of the easiest materials to keep clean. Occasional care will help
preserve its fine appearance.
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 “ grain” of the stainless
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 stainless steel 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.
