IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
Installation
, WARNING
To reduce the risk of fire only
use metal ductwork.
When installing the hood, follow the
recommended minimum safety
distances between a Miele cooktop and
the hood:
– 22" (55 cm) above electric cooktops,
– 26" (65 cm) above gas cooktops,
– 26" (65 cm) above an open grill.
If local building codes require a greater
safety distance, follow their
requirement.
For non-Miele cooking appliances
maintain the safety distances
recommended by the appliance
manufacturer in their instructions.
If there is more than one appliance
beneath the hood and they have
different minimum safety distances
always select the greater distance.
Be careful not to damage hidden
electrical wiring or plumbing when
cutting or drilling into the wall or ceiling.
Any fittings, sealant, or materials
used to install the ductwork must
be made of approved non-flammable
materials.
Never connect an exhaust hood to
an active chimney, dryer vent, vent
flue, or room ventilating ductwork. Seek
professional advice before connecting
an exhaust hood vent to an existing,
inactive chimney or vent flue.
Ducted fans must always be
vented outdoors.
Make sure that the airflow in the
room is sufficient for combustion
and exhausting of all non-electric
heating appliances (water heaters, gas
cooktops, gas ovens, etc.), otherwise
backdrafts may occur. Follow the
heating manufacturer’s guidelines and
safety standards or those published by
the National Fire Protection Association
(NFPA), or the American Society for
Heating, Refrigeration and Air
Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE).
If in doubt, consult an experienced
professional.

Functional description
The hood offers two modes of
operation:
Air extraction
Recirculation mode
The air is drawn in and cleaned by the
grease filters and directed outside.
Air is drawn through the grease filters
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.
10
Before using the hood in
recirculation mode, ensure that the
active charcoal filters are in place,
see "Cleaning and care".
Operation
Turning the fan on
Fan performance
^ Pull the deflector plate out about 2"
(5 cm).
The maximum air flow capacity is
625 cfm. Factors such as narrow duct
diameter and bends will affect this
value.
The hood will operate at power level "II".
Selecting the power level
Depending on how much the air needs
to be filtered, there are four power
levels available.
For normal cooking a low to medium
level is usually sufficient.
For frying or cooking food with a strong
aroma use the highest level.
There will also be a slight decrease in
airflow for hoods operated in
recirculation mode due to the active
charcoal filter.
Level 1 operates at 40% capacity
Level 2 operates at 60% capacity
Level 3 operates at 80% capacity
Level 4 operates at 100% capacity

for stainless steel can be applied.
Grease filter
The reusable metal grease filters
remove solid particles from the vented
kitchen air like grease and dust, etc.
The hood has an external filter which
is visible from beneath. An internal
filter is situated above the external filter
within the casing.
The grease filters should be cleaned
every 3-4 weeks or whenever the
grease filter indicator lights.
Always clean both filters.
Dirty filters are a fire hazard.
Do not use too much water when
cleaning the controls. Water could
penetrate the electronics and cause
damage.

Air extraction
Danger of toxic fumes.
Gas cooking appliances release
carbon monoxide that can be
harmful or fatal if inhaled. The
exhaust gases extracted by the
hood should be vented outside of
the building only.
Do not terminate the exhaust
ducts in attics, garages,
crawlspaces, etc.
Please read and follow the "Important
Safety Instructions" to reduce the risk
of personal injury, and follow all local
building codes when installing the
hood.
WARNING
To reduce the risk of fire, Use only
metal ductwork.
CAUTION
To reduce risk of fire and to properly
exhaust air, be sure to duct air
outside - Do not vent exhaust air into
spaces within walls or ceilings or
into attics, crawl spaces, or garages.
– Use smooth or flexible pipes made
from approved non-flammable
materials for exhaust ducting.
Exhaust ducting and connections
– Where the ductwork is horizontal, it
must slope away from the hood at
least 1/8" per foot (1cm per meter) to
prevent condensation dripping into
the appliance.
– The ducting should be as short and
straight as possible, and the number
of sharp bends should be minimized.
– If the exhaust is ducted through an
outside wall, a Miele Telescopic Wall
Vent can be used.
– For most efficient air extraction, the
diameter of the ductwork should not
be less than 6" (150 mm). Use of flat
ducts also reduces the air extraction
efficiency.
– Noise levels of the hood will increase
if flat ducts or round ducts of less
than 6" (150 mm) in diameter are
used.
38
Air extraction
– If the ductwork runs through rooms,
ceilings, garages, etc. where
temperature variations exist, it may
need to be insulated to reduce
condensation. In some cases, a
condensate trap may also be
required to collect and evaporate
any condensate which may occur.
When installing a condensate trap,
ensure that it is positioned vertically
and if possible directly above the
exhaust outlet.
– 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, vent
flue, or room venting ductwork. Seek
professional advice before
connecting an exhaust hood vent to
an existing, inactive chimney or vent
flue.
