IMPORTANT: Any installation work must be
carried out by a qualified electrician or
competent person.
o The hood must be installed in accordance with the installation
instructions and all measurements followed.
o If the cooker hood is installed for use above a gas appliance then
the provision for ventilation must be in accordance with the Gas
Safety Codes of Practice BS.6172, BS.5440 & BS.6891 (Natural
Gas) and BS.5482 (LP Gas) 1994, the Gas Safety (Installation &
Use) Regulations, the Building Regulations issued by the
Department of the Environment, the Building Standards

recommended distances are being observed between the cooker
top and the bottom of the cooker hood:
¾ Electric cookers:
¾ Gas cookers:
¾ Coal/ oil cookers:
700 mm
700 mm
800 mm
IMPORTANT: DO NOT SET YOUR COOKER HOOD LESS
THAN 700mm ABOVE YOUR COOKER.
o When installed between adjoining wall cabinets, the cabinets
must not overhang the hob.
5
o The edges of the cooker hood are sharp – be mindful of this as
you handle your appliance, especially during installation and
cleaning. DO NOT CLEAN IN BEHIND THE GREASE FILTERS!
o If the room where the cooker hood is to be used contains a fuel
burning appliance such as a central heating boiler then its flue
must be of the sealed or balanced flue type.
o If other types of flue or appliances are fitted, ensure that there is
an adequate supply of air in the room.
o When the hood is being used in its extractor function, ensure
that the ducting is fire retardant and that there are no bends
sharper than 90 degrees as this will reduce the efficiency of the
hood.
o Ensure the ducting for the extractor function has the same
diameter as the outlet hole all the way through.
o Keep young children from using, playing with
or tampering with the cooker hood. Older
children and infirm persons should be
supervised if they are using the cooker hood.
o Your cooker hood is for domestic use only.
o Please dispose of the packing material carefully – children are
especially vulnerable to it.
o Dirty oil is an even greater fire risk.
o Always put lids on pots and pans when cooking
on a gas cooker.
o The manufacturer refuses to accept any responsibility for
damages arising to the hood or it catching on fire from failure to
observe fire safety advice in these instructions.
6
o Remember that when in extraction mode, your cooker hood is
removing air from your room. Ensure that proper ventilation
measures are being observed. Note that it removes odours
from your room, not steam.
o Warning - Always ensure that the cooker
hood has been disconnected from the
power supply before carrying out any work
on the hood, including replacing light bulbs.
o Do not connect the ducting system of this appliance to any
existing ventilation system which is being used for any other
purpose.
o Do not install above a cooker with a high level grill.
o Never leave frying pans unattended during use
as overheated fats and oils might catch fire.

Cleaning your Baumatic cooker hood
IMPORTANT: BEFORE CLEANING, ALWAYS
ENSURE THAT YOU HAVE SWITCHED YOUR
COOKER HOOD OFF AT THE OMNI-POLAR
SWITCH, SET AT THE WALL FROM THE CABLE.
Cleaning
o Clean the external parts of your cooker hood with mild liquid
detergent and a new damp cloth.

The grease filter
o Your cooker hood includes a grease filter which helps to absorb
grease particles to protect your kitchen & furniture from greasy
residues.
o This metallic filter may become inflammable if it becomes
saturated with this greasy residue.
o To prevent this fire hazard, the filter should be cleaned regularly.
Depending on use, this should be done every 10-15 days or at
least once a month, using hot water and normal washing-up
detergent.
o DO NOT WASH THE GREASE FILTER IN A DISHWASHER.

Electrical connection
YOUR COOKER HOOD IS INTENDED FOR FITTED AND
PERMANENT INSTALLATION.
o The power cable must be connected to the terminals marked L
(live) and N (neutral) in the hood and fixed with a cable clamp.
o The cooker hood’s power cable must be fitted upstream from the
electrical connection, using an omni-polar switch with a contact
distance of at least 3 mm.
WARNING: THIS APPLIANCE MUST NOT BE
EARTHED. It should only be connected by a competent
person, using fixed wiring via a double pole switched fused
spur outlet. (UK ONLY).
We recommend that the appliance is connected by a qualified
electrician, who is a member of the N.I.C.E.I.C. and who will comply
with the I.E.E. and local regulations. The wires in the mains lead are
coloured in accordance with the following UK code:
Blue = Neutral
Brown = Live
14
You will only find two wires in the main’s lead (blue and
brown), neither must be connected to the earth terminal.
o As the colours of the wires in the appliance’s mains lead may not
correspond with the coloured markings identifying the terminals
in your spur box, please proceed as follows:
o The blue wire must be connected to the
terminal marked “N” (neutral), or coloured
black.
o The brown wire must be connected to the
terminal marked “L” (live), or coloured red.
Before beginning installation
o Check that the product purchased is of a suitable size for the
chosen installation area. In addition check whether there is an
electrical socket available that will be accessible once the hood is

packaging or any other materials, such as packets of screws,
guarantees etc. These should be removed and kept for future
use.
o If possible, disconnect and move freestanding or slot-in cookers
from their position, to provide easier access to the rear wall and
ceiling. If this is not possible, then a thick, protective covering
should be placed over the worktop, hob top or cooker. This will
help to protect these surfaces from damage and debris.
o Select a flat surface for assembling the cooker hood. Cover that
surface with a protective covering and place all cooker hood
parts and fittings on it.
15
o In addition check whether there is an electrical socket available,
which will be accessible after the hood is mounted. If you are
going to use the appliance in extractor mode, you should also
ensure that there is space to connect a fumes discharge device
to the outside.
o Raw plugs are provided to secure the hood to most types of
walls and ceilings. However a qualified technician must verify the
suitability of the materials, in accordance with the type of wall
and ceiling. The wall and ceiling must be strong enough to take
the weight of the hood.
o Do not tile, grout or silicone this appliance to the wall. This
appliance is designed to be surface mounted only.
Installing your cooker hood
IMPORTANT: YOU WILL HAVE TO DECIDE BEFORE
INSTALLING YOUR COOKER HOOD WHETHER TO USE
IT IN EXTRACTION MODE OR RECIRCULATION
MODE. PLEASE TURN TO PAGE 21 NOW TO
UNDERSTAND THE DIFFERENCES BETWEEN THESE
TWO MODES.
o The cooker hood should not be exposed to a direct heat source

outlet should be 3 metres, with one 90 degree bend.
If you wish to connect your ducting hose to the back of the hood,
then you will need to do the following:
o Push out the blanking plate in the back of the appliance and
place it in the hole on the top of the appliance. You should then
follow the steps outlined above to connect the ducting hose to
the product.
IMPORTANT: Once you have completed the fitting of the
ducting hose, you must secure all four of the support screws to
secure the cooker hood to the wall/to the cupboard.
Electrical connection
The electrical connection must correspond to the electrical requirement
noted on the rating plate, which is placed inside the cooker hood. The
appliance should be connected to the electrical supply. See page 14 –
15 for detailed information on the electrical connection.
20
Extraction mode or recirculation mode?
What is the difference between extraction and recirculation
modes?
To get optimum performance from your cooker, the air will be taken
out of the room via external ducting.
Unfortunately if you live in a flat or the hood is too far from an outside
wall, this may not be possible. The only alternative is to recirculate the
air.
In recirculation mode stale air is taken via the grease filter, and passed
through a charcoal filter for purification. The air then re-enters the
kitchen via an opening in the hood.
What is a charcoal filter and do I need one?
All cooker hoods have a grease filter but if you are using your cooker
hood in recirculation mode, then a charcoal filter must be fitted in
addition to the grease filter.
21
Troubleshooting
IMPORTANT: If your cooker hood appears not to be operating
properly, before contacting the Baumatic Service Department,
please refer to the checklist below.
My cooker hood will not start.
o Check that the hood is connected to the electricity supply
o Check that the fan speed control is set correctly.
My cooker hood is not working effectively.
o The fan speed is not set high enough
o The grease filter is dirty and requires cleaning.
o The kitchen is not well ventilated enough.
