Functional description
The hood offers two modes of
operation:
Air extraction
Recirculation mode
The air is drawn in and cleaned by the
decor panel and the grease filter and
directed outside.
Air is drawn through the decor panel,
grease filter and an active charcoal
filter. The filtered air is then
recirculated back into the kitchen
through a vent at the top of the hood’s
chimney.
The hood comes equipped with a
non-return flap. This flap automatically
closes when the hood is turned off so
that no exchange of outside air and
room air can occur. When the hood is
turned on, the air pressure of the
exhaust fan automatically opens the
flap blowing the inside air and cooking
odors outside.
The recirculation mode requires an
install kit and charcoal filter which are
optional accessories.
Before using the hood in
recirculation mode, ensure that the
active charcoal filter is in place, see
"Cleaning and care".

minimum safety distances always select the greater distance.
See "Important Safety Instructions" for further information.
30
Plywood backing
The majority of the weight of the
installed ventilation system will be
supported by the lower retaining
plate. It must be firmly attached to
the stud framing behind the drywall.
If studs are not available in the
required locations, a plywood
backing (min. ½" (13 mm) thick)
spanning at least two studs must be
installed. Failure to adequately
support the weight as stated may
result in the ventilation system falling
off the wall, causing personal injury
and property damage.
(If plywood backing is not needed,
proceed to the included "Installation
diagram".)
^ Find the studs to the left and right of
the mounting location by tapping the
wall or using a stud finder.
^ Mark a vertical cutting line along the
center of each stud.
,CAUTION
When cutting or drilling into the wall
or ceiling, do not damage electrical
wiring and other hidden utilities.
^ Remove the drywall between the
cutting lines and replace it with
plywood of a matching thickness
(min. ½" (13 mm) thick). Tape the
joints and refinish the wall.
^ Proceed to the enclosed "Installation
diagram" to complete the installation.
To install a plywood backing
^ Determine and mark the location of
the retaining plate for the canopy as
outlined on the "Installation diagram".
^ Make a cutting line 3" (76 mm) above
and 3" (76 mm) below the outline of
the retaining plate.

Air extraction
,WARNING
Danger of toxic fumes.
Gas cooking appliances release
carbon monoxide that can be
harmful or fatal if inhaled.
To reduce the risk of fire and to
properly exhaust air, the exhaust
gases extracted by the hood
should be vented outside of the
building only.
Do not vent exhaust air into
spaces within walls or ceilings or
in attics, crawl spaces or garages.
To reduce the risk of fire, only use
metal ductwork.
Please read and follow the
"IMPORTANT SAFETY
INSTRUCTIONS" to reduce the risk of
personal injury. Follow all local building
codes when installing the hood.
Exhaust ducting and connections
Use smooth or flexible pipework made
from approved non-flammable
materials for exhaust ducting.
To achieve the most efficient air
extraction and quietest noise levels,
consider the following:
– The diameter of the ductwork should
not be less than 6" (150 mm).
– If flat ducting is used, the cross
section must not be smaller than the
cross section of the ventilation
exhaust.
– The ducting should be as short and
straight as possible.
– Use ductwork with a wide radius.
– The exhaust duct must not be bent
or compressed.
– Make sure all connections are
secure.
– Where the ductwork is horizontal, it
must slope away from the hood at
least 1/8" per foot (1 cm per meter) to
prevent condensation dripping into
the appliance.
– If the exhaust is ducted through an
outside wall, a Telescopic Wall Vent
can be used.
35
Air extraction
Condensate trap
optional accessory
– If the exhaust is ducted into an
inactive flue, the air must be expelled
parallel to the flow direction of the
flue.
Never connect an exhaust hood to
an active chimney, dryer vent, flue,
or room venting ductwork. Seek
professional advice before
connecting an exhaust hood vent to
an existing, inactive chimney or vent
flue.
Important
If the ductwork runs through rooms,
ceilings, garages, etc. where
temperature variations exist, it may
need to be insulated to reduce
condensation.
36
In some cases, a condensate trap may
also be required to collect and
evaporate any condensate which may
occur. This optional accessory is
available for ducts 5" (125 mm) and 6"
(150 mm) in diameter.
When installing a condensate trap,
ensure that it is positioned vertically
and if possible directly above the
exhaust outlet.
Electrical connection
,WARNING
TO REDUCE THE RISK OF
FIRE, ELECTRIC SHOCK, OR
INJURY TO PERSONS,
OBSERVE THE FOLLOWING:
All electrical work should be
performed by a qualified electrician
in strict accordance with national
regulations (for USA: ANSI-NFPA 70)
and local safety regulations.
Installation, repairs and other work
by unqualified persons could be
dangerous.
Ensure that power to the appliance
is off while installation or repair work
is performed.
^ Verify that the voltage, load and
circuit rating information found on the
data plate (located behind the
grease filters), match the household
electrical supply before installing the
hood.
^ Use only with ventilation hood
cord-connection kits that have been
investigated and found acceptable
for use with this model hood.
Grounding Instructions
This appliance must be grounded. In
the event of an electrical short circuit,
grounding reduces the risk of electric
shock by providing a path of least
resistance. This appliance is equipped

with a grounding plug. The plug must
be plugged into an outlet that is
properly installed and grounded.
WARNING - Improper grounding can
result in a risk of electric shock.
If there is any doubt, have the electrical
system of the house checked by a
qualified electrician.
Do not use an extension cord. If the
power supply cord is too short, have a
qualified electrician install an outlet
near the appliance.
