Hood Controls
Heat Sentry Feature
The Wolf cooktop low-profile hood is operated using the
touch control pads on the front face of the hood. Refer to

Halogen Lighting
Wolf cooktop low-profile hoods have halogen lighting with
three settings. Halogen bulbs are included with the hood.
For replacement, cooktop low-profile hoods require
type T4, 12 V, 20 W halogen bulbs, which are available at
hardware stores or through your authorized Wolf dealer.
For local dealer information, visit the find a showroom
section of our website, wolfappliance.com.
Use caution when handling light bulbs. Halogen bulbs
get hot instantly and adjacent parts may retain heat.
LIGHT BULB REPLACEMENT
IMPORTANT NOTE: Use a paper towel when handling
the replacement halogen bulb to keep oil on fingers from
touching the bulb. Failure to do this will shorten the life of
the bulb.
1) Turn off the blower and lights and allow the halogen
bulb to cool before replacing.
2) Open the light cover by pressing in on the slots as
shown in the illustration below. Remove the old
halogen bulb by pulling it straight out of the socket.

Grease Filters
The aluminum mesh grease filter(s) should be cleaned
approximately every month, depending on use. The ‘F’
touch pad of the hood controls will illuminate to indicate
when the filter(s) should be cleaned. This indicator light
comes on after approximately 30 hours of operation. To
reset the hour counter, touch the ‘F’ touch pad while the
icon is illuminated. You may need to clean the filter(s)
more often if your cooking style generates large amounts
of grease, like frying foods or wok cooking. Refer to care
recommendations on page 12.

To access the grease filter(s), gently pull down on the front
edge of the bottom panel and allow it to rotate downward
as shown in the illustration below. Push the handle for
the filter outward and pull the filter downward to remove.
Reinstall using the reverse procedure.
IMPORTANT NOTE: Do not operate the ventilation hood
without the grease filter(s). This may cause damage to the
blower or other internal components of the hood.

RECIRCULATING APPLICATION
CHARCOAL FILTER REMOVAL
If the ventilation hood is used in a recirculating or
non-ducted application, the charcoal filter must be
replaced at regular intervals. The ‘F’ touch pad of the
hood controls will flash to indicate when the charcoal filter
needs to be replaced. This indicator light flashes after
approximately 120 hours of operation. To reset the hour
counter, press the ‘F’ touch pad while the icon is flashing.

previous page. Then remove the charcoal filter as shown
in illustration below. Push the catch towards the inside
and turn the charcoal filter so that the two filter clips slip
out of their seats. Install the new charcoal filter using the
reverse procedure.
IMPORTANT NOTE: Resetting the 120 hour counter for the
charcoal filter will not affect the 30 hour counter for the
grease filter.
Replacement charcoal filters are available through your
authorized Wolf dealer. For local dealer information,

Care Recommendations
STAINLESS STEEL
GLASS CONTROL PANEL
Most surfaces of your cooktop low-profile hood are
stainless steel. Although resistant to most stains, it is not
totally impervious to damage. Salt and some cooking
liquids may pit and stain the surface. Remove these
spatters immediately.
Use a spray degreaser to remove fingerprints and greasy
spatters. Spray on a cloth and wipe the surface. Use a
clean cloth or sponge and wipe the surface with warm
water and a mild detergent. Rinse and dry immediately.
IMPORTANT NOTE: Do not use abrasive cleaners; they
will permanently scratch stainless steel surfaces.
GREASE FILTERS
Use a spray degreaser to remove fingerprints and greasy
spatters. Spray on a cloth and wipe the surface. Buff dry
immediately to avoid streaking. For hard water stains, use
white vinegar and water.
For general cleaning, use a soft, nonabrasive stainless
steel cleaner like Signature polish and apply with a soft
lint-free cloth. To bring out the natural luster, lightly wipe
the surface with a water-dampened microfiber cloth
followed by a dry polishing chamois. All work should
follow the grain direction of the finish. Better results are
obtained by keeping the cloth in continuous contact with
the stainless steel.
Signature polish is available from Signature Limited
Laboratory, P. O. Box 13436, Dayton, Ohio 45413, or call
877-376-5474.
The aluminum mesh filter(s) and stainless steel cover(s) are
dishwasher safe and are designed to fit most dishwashers.
Wolf recommends wiping filters and filter
covers to remove any excess grease before placing in the
dishwasher. Clean the filters and filter covers in the dishwasher or hand wash using a mild detergent. Refer to filter
removal on page 10.
