Caring for the environment
Disposal of the packing
material
The transport and protective packing
has been selected from materials which
are environmentally friendly for
disposal, and can normally be
recycled.
Packaging e.g. cling film, polystyrene
and plastic wrappings must be kept out
of the reach of babies and young
children. Danger of suffocation!
Disposal of your old appliance
Electrical and electronic appliances
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.
Please do not therefore dispose of it
with your household waste.
Dispose of or recycle all packaging
materials safely as soon as possible.
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.
It should be unplugged or disconnected
from the mains electricity supply by a
competent person.

Warning and Safety instructions
Technical safety
~ Before installation, check the cooker
hood for visible signs of damage.
Under no circumstances should you
use a damaged appliance. A damaged
appliance is dangerous.
~ Before connecting the appliance to
the mains supply, make sure that the
voltage and frequency details given on
the data plate correspond with the
on-site electricity supply, otherwise the
appliance could be damaged. Consult
a qualified electrician if in any doubt.
~ The electrical safety of this
appliance can only be guaranteed
when continuity is complete between it
and an effective earthing system which
complies with current local and national
safety regulations. It is most important
that this basic safety requirement is
present and tested regularly, and
where there is any doubt, the
household wiring system should be
inspected by a qualified electrician.
The manufacturer cannot be held liable
for the consequences of an inadequate
earthing system (e.g. electric shock).
~ For safety reasons, this appliance
may only be used when it has been
fully installed.
~ Installation, maintenance and
repairs may only be carried out by a
Miele authorised person in accordance
with current national and local safety
regulations.
Repairs and other work by unqualified
persons could be dangerous. The
manufacturer cannot be held liable for
unauthorised work.
~ Faulty components must only be
replaced by genuine Miele original
parts. The manufacturer can only
guarantee the safety of the appliance
when Miele replacement parts are
used.
~ During installation, maintenance and
repair work, the appliance must be
disconnected from the mains electricity
supply. It is only completely isolated
from the electricity supply when:
– it is switched off at the isolator, or
– the screw-out fuse is removed (in
countries where this is applicable), or
– the mains fuse is disconnected, or
– it is switched off at the wall socket
and the plug withdrawn, or
– the fuse from the fused spur
connection unit is withdrawn.
~ Only open the housing as described
in the instructions given in the
installation sheet and in the Cleaning
and care section of this booklet. Under
no circumstances should any other

or components and mechanical parts is
highly dangerous to the user, and can
cause operational faults.
5
Warning and Safety instructions
~ Do not connect the appliance to the
mains electricity supply by a
multi-socket unit or an extension lead.
These do not guarantee the required
safety of the appliance (e.g. danger of
overheating).
Using at the same time as other
heating appliances that depend on
the air from the room
Warning - danger of toxic fumes
~ For appliances with an external fan
motor fitted (...EXT models) the
connection of the two units must be
made using the connection cable and
the plug connectors.
These models may only be combined
with a Miele external motor.
~ This appliance may only be used in
mobile installations such as ships,
caravans, aircraft etc. if a risk
assessment of the installation has been
carried out by a suitably qualified
engineer.
~ In areas which may be subject to
infestation by cockroaches or other
vermin, pay particular attention to
keeping the appliance and its
surroundings in a clean condition at all
times. Any damage which may be
caused by cockroaches or other vermin
will not be covered by the guarantee.
~ 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, 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 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.
6
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 of
0.04 mbar (4 pa) is the maximum
permissible in the room.
One of the following technical
measures may be necessary to ensure
safe operation.
– If the only way of ensuring adequate
ventilation is via an open window, a
window contact switch should be
fitted to ensure that the cooker hood
can only operate when the window is
opened sufficiently.
Take care when ventilating the room
through an open window that
ventilation is not impaired by a
closed blind or curtain.
– The cooker hood can be set up to
automatically switch on an air intake
fan or open a motorised inlet flap
when it is switched on.
Ventilation can be maintained by air
inlets which must not be blocked, in
windows, doors and 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) must be sought.
– The cooker hood can be set up to
automatically switch off a heating
appliance which also depends on
the air from the room when it is
switched on.
The Miele DSM 400 control module
offers the possibility of combining other
components with the cooker hood (see
"Operation with Control module
DSM 400").
It is available to purchase as an
optional extra.
If in any doubt, the advice of a
competent builder or for gas , a
qualified gas fitter must be sought.
If the hood is being operated in
recirculation mode, the above
restrictions do not apply.
7
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
particles drawn into the cooker hood
present a fire hazard.
~ 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.
Regulate the flame so that it does not
burn up the sides of the pan.
Do not allow the pans to overheat
excessively (e.g. when using a wok).
The cooker hood can become
damaged when exposed to excessive
heat.
~ 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. See
"Cleaning and care".
~ 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.
~ Do not use a steam-cleaner to clean
this appliance. Steam could reach the
electrical components and cause a
short circuit.
Correct installation
~ Refer to the cooker or hob
manufacturer's instructions as to
whether a cooker hood may be
operated above the cooker/hob.
~ The minimum safety distances
between the top of the cooker or hob
and the bottom of the cooker hood
given in the "Appliance dimensions"
section of this booklet must be
maintained, unless the hob
manufacturer states that a greater
safety 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.
8
Warning and Safety instructions
~ Safety regulations prohibit the fitting
of a cooker hood over solid fuel stoves.
~ All ducting, pipework and fittings
must be of non-flammable material.
These can be obtained from the Miele
Spare Parts department 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
~ Only use genuine Miele spare parts
and accessories with this appliance. If
spare parts or accessories from other
manufacturers are used, this will
invalidate the guarantee, and Miele
cannot accept liability.
The manufacturer cannot be held
liable for damage caused by
non-compliance with these Warning
and Safety instructions.

Modes of operation
The cooker hood 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, cleaned by the
grease filters and directed outside.
The cooker hood is fitted with a
non-return flap, which is closed when
the cooker hood is switched off. No
exchange of room air and outside air
can take place. When the cooker hood
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 cooker
hood telescopic tower.
Before using the cooker hood in
recirculation mode, ensure that the
charcoal filter is in place. See
"Cleaning and care".
. . . an external fan:
(...EXT models only)
The ...EXT models are designed to be
connected to an external motor located
outside the room.
The external fan is connected to the
cooker hood by means of a control
cable and is operated by the controls
on the cooker hood.

Cleaning and care
,Before carrying out any cleaning
or maintenance work, disconnect
the cooker hood from the mains
supply. Ensure that:
– it is switched off at the isolator, or
– it is switched off at the wall socket
and the plug removed, or
– the fuse is withdrawn from the
fused spur connection unit, or
– the mains fuse is disconnected, or
– the screw-out fuse is removed (in
countries where this is applicable).
Housing
General notes
The surfaces and controls are
susceptible to scratches and
abrasions. Please observe the
following cleaning instructions.
^ All external surfaces and controls can
be cleaned using warm water with a
little washing-up liquid applied with a
well wrung-out soft sponge or cloth.
^ Wipe the surfaces dry using a soft
cloth.
Do not use too much water when
cleaning the controls. Water could
penetrate into the electronics and
cause damage.
^ A microfibre "E-Cloth" is available
from the Miele UK Spare Parts
Department which is suitable for
cleaning surfaces such as stainless
steel, glass, plastic and chrome
20
without the use of chemicals.
Avoid:
– 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.
Important for appliances with
stainless steel housing
(This infomation does not apply to the
controls).
Stainless steel surfaces can be cleaned
using the Miele E-cloth, or with a
proprietary non-abrasive cleaning
agent designed specifically for use on
stainless steel.
To help prevent re-soiling, a proprietary
conditioning agent for stainless steel,
e.g. Neoblank (available from the Miele
Spare Parts Dept.) can also be used.
Apply sparingly, following the
instructions on the label.
Important for appliances with
lacquered housing
(special finish)
It is very difficult to clean this type of
surface without causing minor marks to
the surface material. This can become
particularly noticeable with darker
colours and if there is halogen lighting
in the kitchen.
Cleaning and care
Controls
The controls may suffer
discolouration or damage if soiling is
left on them for too long. Remove
soiling straight away.
Observe the General notes on cleaning
earlier in this section.
Do not use stainless steel cleaning
agents on the controls.
Grease filters
Re-usable metal filters are fitted which
remove solid particles (oil, dust, etc.)
from the kitchen vapours, preventing
soiling of the cooker hood.
^ To take out the grease filters, release
the locking clip on the filter, lower the
filter 45°, unhook it at the back and
remove it.
To avoid damaging the filter or the
hob below, make sure you hold the
filter securely at all times when
handling it.
Cleaning the grease filters by hand
The grease filters should be cleaned
regularly (at least every 3-4 weeks) to
avoid a build-up of grease.
However, they should be cleaned immediately if the grease filter touch
control lamp comes on.
,An oversaturated filter is a fire
hazard.
^ Clean the filters with a soft nylon
brush in a mild solution of hot water
and a little washing-up liquid.
Do not use "neat" washing up liquid.
Do not use:
– cleaning agents containing
descaling agents,
– powder cleaners, cream cleaners or
abrasive all-purpose cleaning
agents,
– oven sprays.
21
Cleaning and care
Cleaning the grease filters in the
dishwasher
^ Place the filters as upright as
possible in the lower basket, with the
short sides upright, and wash on a
65°C programme, ensuring the spray
arm is not obstructed. If a Miele
dishwasher is being used, select the
Sensor wash programme.
^ Use a mild dishwasher detergent.
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.
^ After cleaning, leave the filters to dry
on an absorbent surface before
replacing 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.
22
When putting the grease filters back
in position, ensure that the locking
clips are facing down towards the
hob.
If the grease filters are inadvertently
replaced upside down, insert a small
screwdriver blade into the slits to
disengage the clip.
^ After replacing the grease filters,
press the grease filter touch control
for approx. 3 seconds to re-set the
operating hours counter.
The indicator lamp will go out.
If the grease filters are cleaned before
the operating hours counter has
reached its maximum, the grease filter
touch control should be pressed for
approx. 6 seconds to reset the counter.
Cleaning and care
Fitting and replacing the
charcoal filter
If the cooker hood is connected for
recirculation, a charcoal filter must be
inserted in addition to the grease filters.
It is designed to absorb cooking
odours.
It is fitted in the canopy above the
grease filters.
New filters can be purchased from
your Miele dealer or from the Miele
Spare Parts Department.
See back cover for contact details,
and "Technical data" for the model
number of the 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.
Always replace the charcoal filter immediately if
– the indicator lamp for the charcoal
filter touch control lights up,
or
– if 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.
^ After fitting the new charcoal filter,
press the charcoal filter touch control
for approx. 3 seconds to re-set the
operating hours counter.
The indicator lamp will go out.
^ If a charcoal filter is replaced before
the operating hours counter has
reached its maximum, the charcoal
filter touch control should be pressed
for approx. 6 seconds to reset the
counter.
^ Insert the charcoal filter into the
canopy.
When fitting for the first time:
^ Set the operating hours counter to
suit your requirements (see
"Operation").
23
Cleaning and care
Changing a halogen lamp
^ Before any cleaning or maintenance
work, disconnect the cooker hood
from the mains supply. Ensure that
– it is switched off at the isolator, or
– the screw-out fuse is removed (in
countries where this is applicable).
,Exercise caution when changing
halogen lamps. They get very hot
during use and remain hot for some
time after being switched off. Let
them cool down before you change
them.
Do not touch the surface directly
when changing a lamp, as grease
particles from your fingers will
adhere to the surface and damage
it. Please follow the manufacturer's
instructions.
^ To access the halogen lamp, push
the lamp cover gently upwards. The
cover will open and can be pulled
down.
^ Pull the old halogen lamp out of the
connection socket and replace it with
a new one (20 W, G 4 fitting).
^ Push the cover back up and make
sure it clicks into place.

Safety distance between hob and
cooker hood (S)
For safety reasons a minimum safety
distance must be maintained
between the top of the cooker/hob
and the bottom of the cooker hood:
- 550 mm above electric cookers/hobs
- 650 mm above an open grill from
the Miele range.
- 650 mm above gas cookers/hobs
If this cooker hood is installed above
a Miele Wok CS 1028 CombiSet
appliance, a minimum safety
distance of 760 mm must be
maintained between the burner and
the lower edge of the cooker hood.
See the Warning and Safety
instructions for further information.
A distance of 650 mm above the hob
may be preferable to give more working
space.
27
Installation
Assembly parts
4 screws 8 x 60 mm with
4 washers and
4 plugs S 10 to secure the cover plate
to the ceiling
The screws and plugs are designed
for use in concrete ceilings.
For other types of construction,
alternative suitable fixings will be
required.
Make sure the ceiling is strong
enough to bear the weight of the
cooker hood.
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.
Installation instructions
See enclosed Installation sheet for
instructions on how to install this
appliance.
Special installation
instructions for recirculation
mode
2 spring clips to hang the cooker hood
onto the cover plate
4 countersunk screws M 6 x 20 mm
with locating bar and
4 self-locking nuts M 6 to secure the
cooker hood to the cover plate
1 cable clip for securing the exhaust
ducting to the exhaust stub.
28
In order to use the cooker hood in
recirculation mode, it has to be fitted
with a special conversion kit which is
available from the Spare Parts
Department (see "Technical data"). It is
supplied with its own fitting instructions.
After the cooker hood has been
installed, the charcoal filter has to be
fitted, and the operating hours counter
has to be set.
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
(BS 7671 in the UK).
Installation, repairs and other work
by unqualified persons could be
dangerous, for which the
manufacturer cannot be held liable.
Ensure power is not supplied to the
appliance until after installation or
repair work has been carried out.
Do not connect the appliance to the
mains electricity supply by an
extension lead. These do not
guarantee the required safety of the
appliance.
The connection data is given on the
data plate. (See "After Sales Service").
Ensure that this data matches the
household mains supply.
If the switch is not accessible after
installation (depending on country), an
additional means of disconnection must
be provided for all poles.
For extra safety it is advisable to install
a residual current device (RCD) with a
trip current of 30 mA.
Important
This appliance is supplied for
connection to an a.c.
230 V single phase 50 Hz supply.
The wires in the mains lead are
coloured in accordance with the
following code:
Green/yellow = earth
Blue
= neutral
Brown
= live
WARNING:
THIS APPLIANCE MUST BE
EARTHED
Connection of this appliance should be
made via a suitable isolator or a double
pole fused spur connection unit which
complies with national and local safety
regulations and the On-Off switch
should be easily accessible after the
appliance has been built in.
When switched off there must be an
all-pole contact gap of 3 mm in the
switch (including switch, fuses and
relays according to EN 60335).
29
Operation with DSM 400 control module
The Miele DSM 400 control module can
be used to combine the cooker hood
with other components.
It enables the following:
Connection to a window contact
switch
If adequate ventilation to the room can
only be ensured by having a window
open when the cooker hood is in use at
the same time as a heating appliance
which depends on the air from the
same room, then the control module
can be used to connect a window
contact switch (not supplied) to the
appliance.
Once connnected, the cooker hood can
only be operated when the window is
sufficiently open (see also "Warning
and Safety instructions").
When the window is closed, the cooker
hood fan cannot be switched on. The
indicator lamp for the On/Off touch
control on the cooker hood will flash.
The same applies to operation with an
external motor (depending on model).
The cooker hood lighting is not affected
by this.
...EXT models can also be connected to
a window contact switch.
Take care when ventilating the room
through an open window that ventilation
is not impaired by a closed blind or
curtain.
30
If the control module is
disconnected in order to operate the
cooker hood without the window
contact switch (e.g. after moving
house) the cooker hood electronics
must be reset by a Miele service
technician.
Potential free connection
This enables a further appliance to be
controlled by the switch setting on the
cooker hood fan.
– For instance it can be used to ensure
a sufficient supply of fresh air when
the cooker hood and a heating
appliance which also depends on
the air in the room are being used
together, by switching on an air
intake fan, or opening a motorised
inlet flap as soon as the cooker hood
fan is switched on.
It is important to ensure that the fan
power is sufficient and that the air
intake has a suitable cross-sectional
diameter.
– If a sufficient air intake cannot be
guaranteed, then the potential free
contact will enable a heating
appliance, which depends on air in
the same room as a cooker hood, to
be switched off when the cooker
hood is in operation.
See also "Warning and Safety"
instructions.
Operation with DSM 400 control module
Connection to a light switch
The control module can be used to
switch on the cooker hood lighting and
also to dim it (depending on model) via
a light switch in the house.
Installation
The control module is fitted in the tower
after the cover plate has been
unscrewed from the ceiling.
The control module is supplied with its
own detailed operating and installation
instructions.
31
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 cooker hood at the same time as
another heating appliance which
relies on air from the same room.
The cooker hood should be installed
according to local and national
building regulations. Seek approval
from the building inspector where
necessary.
– 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 cooker
hood.
– If the exhaust air is to be ducted into
the open air, the installation of a
telescopic wall vent is
recommended.
– All ducting, pipework and fittings
must be of non-flammable materials.
– The exhaust ducting should be as
short and straight as possible.
– To ensure efficient air extraction, the
diameter of the exhaust ducting
should not be less than 150 mm.
If exhaust ducting with a diameter of
less than 150 mm, or if flat ducting is
used, the noise level of the cooker
hood will increase and extraction will
be less efficient.
Only reduce the diameter of the
ducting if absolutely necessary, e.g.
where narrower ducting has already
been installed.
– Only use wide radius bends. Tight
bends reduce the air throughput of
the cooker hood.
– Only use smooth pipes or flexible
hoses made from non-flammable
materials for extraction connection.
32
– If the exhaust air is to be ducted into
a vent flue, the ducting must be
directed in the flow direction of the
flue.
Connection for air extraction
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.
Cooker hoods designed for use with an
external motor (...EXT models) have an
integrated condensate trap.
Silencer
(optional accessory)
Condensate trap
(optional accessory)
To achieve even further reductions in
noise levels, a special silencer can be
fitted in the ducting system.
It can be sited at any suitable position
in the ducting system between the
cooker hood and the external motor on
...EXT model cooker hoods.
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 C 125 mm or
C 150 mm ducting.
On extraction models, it can be fitted
nearest the ducting outlet to the outside
to reduce neighbourhood noise.
On recirculation models, it can be fitted
in between the fan and the deflector.
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.
