To Operate
Select the required functions.
The appliance can be installed to
recirculate or extract contaminated air.
The cooker hood is more effective when
used in the extraction mode.
Extraction
In the extraction mode the contaminated
air enters the cooker hood, passes
through the grease filter and out through
the ducting to the atmosphere.
Recirculation
In the recirculation mode contaminated
air is passed through the charcoal
filters to be purified and recirculated
into the kitchen through a recirculation
grille. Ensure the charcoal filters are in
position.
When the ducting mode is selected
the charcoal filters are not required.
Never do flambé cooking under this
cooker hood.
Never leave frying pans unattended
during use as over-heated fats and
oils can catch fire.
Do not leave naked flames under the
cooker hood.

MAINTENANCE AND CLEANING
Before carrying out any maintenance
or cleaning isolate the cooker hood
from the mains supply.
The cooker hood must be kept clean,
as a build up of grease or fat can be
a fire hazard.
The external surfaces of the hood
should be cleaned regularly. Wipe the
cooker hood frequently with warm
soapy water using a mild detergent. Dry
thoroughly after cleaning.
Always wear protective gloves when
cleaning the hood.
Never use scouring pads or abrasive
cleaners.
Never use excessive amounts of water when cleaning particularly around
the control panel.
Charcoal Filter
The charcoal filters absorb the odours
from cooking. They will slowly become
saturated and gradually less effective.
The charcoal filters cannot be cleaned,
we recommend they are replaced every
3-6 months or more often if the hood is
used for more than 3 hours per day.

16 electrolux INSTALLING THE COOKER HOOD
INSTALLING THE COOKER HOOD
Please ensure that when the
appliance is installed it is easily
accessible to an engineer in the
EN event of a breakdown.
All installations must comply with the
local authorities requirements for the
discharge of exhaust air.
Incorrect installation may affect the
safety of this cooker hood.
Installation Requirements
Before fitting the hood beneath
any type of canopy or wall cabinet,
ensure that the housing is firmly fixed
to the wall in accordance with the
manufacturer’s instructions.
If it is necessary to fix the housing for
the canopy to a hollow construction
plaster or partition board structure then
it should be sufficiently reinforced to
be quite rigid in the area of the cabinet
housing fixings.
Ducting
The ducting must be fire retardant
125mm (5ins) in diameter and the length
should be no more than:
3 metres with one 90° bend
2 metres with two 90° bends
Bends of more than 90° will reduce the
efficiency of the hood and reduce the
airflow.
Clearance Height
The cooker hood is designed to be
fitted over a cooking appliance at the
clearance heights stated, providing
the maximum output of the appliance
beneath does not exceed the maximums
quoted in the Technical Specifications.
If the output of the appliance below the
cooker hood exceeds the maximum
outputs quoted, please refer to the
cooker
manufacturer’s
installation
instructions.
Clearance Height
A clearance height of 650mm (25 1/2 ”)
is required when installed above a builtin electric hob, or 700mm (27 1/2 ”)
when installed above a built-in gas hob.
A clearance height of 685mm (27”)
is required when installed above a
slot-in electric cooker, or 787mm (30
1/2 ”) when installed above a slot-in gas
cooker.
electrolux 17
When installed between adjoining wall
cabinets, the wall cabinets must not
overhang the hob and the distance
between the underside of the cabinet
and the worktop must be 450mm. If
the height of the wall cabinet is less
than 450mm, a gap of 50mm must be
maintained either side of the hob.
This cooker hood must not be installed above a cooking appliance with a
high level grill.
Unpacking
The fittings supplied to install this cooker
hood can be found with the instruction
book inside the packaging:
120 - 125 mm ducting collar
Fitting the Cooker Hood
into the Housing/Canopy
The hood is fixed to the housing using
the screw holes located around the
base of the casing. Access to the screw
holes will require the removal of the
metal grille panel.
Positioning the Cooker Hood
Measure the underside of the canopy or
kitchen cabinet to mark the position for
the cut-out. The cut-out measurement
should be:
- 497mm (19 5/8”) wide
- 259mm (10 1/4”) deep
Check the position of the hole is
correct with the measurements
above before making the cut-out.

the casing visible when the inlet grille is
in the open position.
Support the grille panel with one hand
EN
and draw down on the two grey handles
(A) which are located on each side of
the grille with the other hand.
Raise the hood into the cut out and mark
the positions for the fixing screws. Pilot
drill the fixing holes and fit the hood.
Venting
The hood is more effective when used
in the extraction mode (ducted to the
outside). Venting kits maybe purchased
through your retailer or DIY store, and
must be ducted to an outside vent of
125mm (5”) minimum.
The ducting used must be manufactured from fire retardant material.
When the hood is ducted externally the
charcoal filters must be removed.
Recirculation
If you are using the hood for recirculating,
ensure the charcoal filters are in position
following the instructions below.
Inserting the Charcoal
Filters
1.Remove the grille panel, support the
grille with one hand and draw down
on the two grey handles (located at
each side of the grille).
2.The charcoal filters are handed and
should be fitted one at a time.
3.Insert one end of the filter into the
slots in the fan housing, then lower
the other and until the tab engages
the slot in the casing.
electrolux 19
Extraction
The charcoal filters are not required in
this mode and should be removed. To
do this reverse the procedure described
in Inserting the ‘Charcoal Filters’.
Ducting
The ducting used must be fire retardant
125mm (5”) in diameter. If possible
duct through the wall at the rear of the
canopy or wall cabinet. For the best
performance use the shortest possible
duct run and the minimum number
of bends. Where flexible ducting is
fitted it should not be turned through
very tight bends as this may impair
the performance of the hood. It is
recommended a maximum length of
3m, to be installed, to be reduced
1m for each 90° bend installed in the
ducting run. If the distance is greater
than 3m the efficiency of the hood could
be impaired.
A ducting collar of 120-125 mm (5”) is
supplied for attaching to ducting if you
are using the appliance in the extraction
mode.
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
room sealed or balanced flue type.
If other types of flue or appliances are
fitted ensure that there is an adequate supply of air to the room.
The cooker hood ducting (extraction
version) must never be connected
to central heating flues, radiators or
water heaters etc.
