Overview
Pre-installation
Thank you for purchasing a quality Robinhood rangehood. Robinhood has a high standard of quality control
and every rangehood is tested and approved before it leaves the factory.
Important:
o Please read the entire instructions before installing the rangehood.
o Always switch power off prior to installation.
o Stainless steel is very easily damaged during installation if abraded or knocked by tools. Protect the
rangehood with the cardboard box or plastic bag during installation.
o All electrical work must be done in accordance with local and national electrical codes as applicable.
o For safety, this product must be earthed.
o A power outlet should be within 1500mm of the power cord exit from the rangehood.
o The power socket must be accessible and enable the end user to isolate the rangehood from the power for
the purpose of internal cleaning or maintenance.
o 150mm round ducting adapter is supplied. All other ducting accessories are not supplied. All ducting must
comply with local requirements and building codes.
o If re-circulating, ensure that the side outlet grilles are not obstructed. Even a partial obstruction will
restrict the efficiency of the rangehood.
o See Ducting options next page.

Ducting Options
The method of ducting should be carefully considered before installing the rangehood. The guide below
recommends the ducting components to use for all common ducting configurations - through the top of the home
(for the roof and soffit) and through the rear of the home. 150mm round ducting should be used in conjunction
with this model rangehood. Alternatively this rangehood can be operated in recirculation mode (see Recirculation
mode pg 6).
The highlighted area in the table below gives the recommended Uniduct item numbers for different
mounting and outlet options.

Installation
Mounting to a stud is recommended. However, if fitted to other wall linings (plasterboard, concrete etc) suitable
fixings will be required. Before drilling any holes check that the wall and ceiling are clear of any electrical cables,
pipes etc.

Fixing screw
Fixing plate
1. Pre drill pilot holes in the positions given (pg 4 - Installation position). Fix the fixing plate using the screws
supplied or appropriate wall fixings, check with a spirit level to ensure bracket is level. Tighten screws.
2. Mark the position of the decorative chimney at the ceiling and wall. Cut the cornice moulding away if
required, to enable the chimney to sit flush against the wall and ceiling.
3. Only if ducting - Mark and cut out the hole in the ceiling / wall to fit the ducting (160mm dia max).
Warning: Chimney depth is 172mm. Ensure no part of the hole is greater than 170mm from the wall.
4. Using the screws supplied, fix the chimney bracket to the wall, checking that is central about the canopy.

Installation - continued
5. Remove the protective plastic covering from all parts including the filters. Fit the canopy hood on the
fixing bracket.
6. Fix the lower chimney bracket to the top of the lower chimney using two screws supplied.
7. Connect to the power supply and switch on the power to the canopy hood. Check the function of the
canopy hood. Connect and secure the ducting (use duct tape if required).
8. Place the two chimney pieces onto the canopy top and secure the lower part to the canopy sides. Extend
the upper chimney to the ceiling and secure in place with two screws supplied.
Recirculation mode
1. This unit can be installed to operate in recirculation mode where ducting is not a chosen/desired or practical
option. There are recirculation grilles fitted on each side of the upper chimney which allow the cleansed air
to return to the kitchen. Ensure that the side outlet grilles are not obstructed. Even a partial obstruction
will restrict the efficiency of the rangehood.
2. Replace aluminium filters with charcoal filters (see pg 7 for part numbers).
Notes:
o Please remember to fill out the details on the warranty certificate (do not post).
o Remove any plastic coating from the product.

The light can be operated independently from the fan and is controlled in accordance with the graphics printed
above.
Fan
The fan is operated by turning the power switch on. It can be run at three different speeds (Speed 1 / Speed 2 /
Speed 3) depending on the cooking requirements and is controlled in accordance with the graphics printed above.
Cleaning and maintenance
General Maintenance
Switch off the canopy before cleaning or maintenance. To prevent surface damage never use abrasive
or oil based liquid cleaners. To clean the surfaces of the appliance, use mild detergent and warm water. In
areas of high humidity and coastal environments cleaning should be carried out frequently.
Warning: a build up of oil may occur if the wall canopy is not cleaned regularly.
Filter Maintenance
To maintain efficiency, the filters should be removed regularly (approximately monthly), and washed using hot
soapy water or the dishwasher. Note - some discolouration of the frame may occur if washed in the
dishwasher.
Rangehoods fitted with charcoal filters are designed to remove grease and odours from cooking vapours prior to
the cleansed air re-entering the kitchen (when the rangehood is in recirculation mode). Charcoal filters should be
replaced every two to four months depending on use.
Note: Fully saturated charcoal filters can become a barrier to air movement therefore limiting rangehood
performance. In the event of fire, grease laden filters could be flammable and therefore regular replacement is
recommended. In ducted installations, conventional aluminium filters are recommended.
Replacement of Halogen Lamps
To replace a lamp, first disconnect the rangehood from the power supply. Use a small blade screwdriver to prise
off the lamp cover. Care must be taken to avoid the lamp lens falling on to the hob top. The halogen bulb is a
push fit into the lamp body. Insert the replacement lamp into the lamp holder and replace the lens and lamp
cover.
