Installation recommendations
Structural support
– We also recommend a distance of at
least 25 1/2" (650 mm) above electric
cooktops to provide more workspace
and easier cooking under the hood.
– When selecting an installation height,
always take the user height into
consideration. Users should have
ample space to work comfortably on
the cooktop and reach the ventilation
hood controls with ease.
– Please note that the greater the
distance from the cooktop, the less
effective the hood is at drawing in the
cooking vapors.
– To achieve optimal vapor extraction,
make sure that the hood covers the
cooktop. The hood should be
positioned centrally over the
cooktop, not to the side or rear.
– The cooktop should be no wider than
the hood. Preferably, it should be
– The mounting area must be easily
accessible. The ventilation hood
should be easy to reach and
disassemble in case a service call is
necessary. This should be taken into
consideration when planning the
position of cupboards, shelves,
ceilings or decorative elements in the
vicinity of the ventilation hood.
The hood must be attached to rigid
structural framing that is supported
in its entirety by the ceiling joists, or
to the ceiling joists directly. Do not
attach the plate directly to the ceiling
with anchors, toggle bolts, etc.
Removing the protective film
The housing components are covered
by a protective film to prevent them
from becoming damaged during
 Please remove this film before
installing the housing components. It
can be peeled off easily without any
additional tools.

 For vented mode:
 Draw two intersecting lines on the
– Place a section of the exhaust
ducting in the ceiling and feed it
down through the cross-sectional
area as illustrated. Exhaust ducting of
approx. 27 9/16" (700 mm) length is
required between the ceiling and the
hood exhaust socket.
– Secure the exhaust ducting to the
exhaust socket, e.g. with a hose clip
(available as an optional accessory)
on flexible ducting.
 Place the power cord and guide it
through the ceiling in the area shown.
A power cord approx. 27 9/16"
(700 mm) in length is required
between the ceiling and the hood
 Use a knife to release the four
spacers and the two covers from the
spacer frame supplied.
 Drill four holes  3/8" (10 mm),
approx. 4 1/2" (115 mm) deep for the
plugs supplied.
 Use the spacer frame as a drilling
template. Place it on the ceiling with
the arrows pointing forwards. Using
the notches, align the spacer frame
on the intersecting lines and make
pencil marks for the drill holes.
 Place the four plugs in the holes and
screw in the four screws so that they
protrude by approx. 1 3/16" (30 mm).
The spacer frame can be installed
between the chimney and the ceiling.
This creates a shadow which gives the
illusion of a gap between the ceiling
and the chimney. This is useful if the
ceiling is not level or is uneven. The
hood is aligned vertically with the
spacers supplied. Visual irregularities
between the chimney and the ceiling
are then concealed by the shadow.
 Mount the spacer frame onto the
installation frame.
 If you wish to install the hood with the
spacer frame, remove the four inserts
from the fixing holes.
 Hang the installation frame on the
four screws. The front of the frame is
marked with a "V."
 If using the spacer frame, place the
two covers into the fixing holes.
 Align the installation frame and
secure it with the screws.
The spacers, which were removed
from the spacer frame at the start,
can be used to align the hood
 Holding the installation frame
securely, remove the two fixing
screws and extend the installation
frame to its maximum length.
 Replace the screws.
The directional unit from recirculation
kit DUI 32 (optional accessory) is
installed for recirculation mode (RM):
 Bend the four retaining tabs on the
installation frame outwards.
 Place the power cord inside the
installation frame.
 Fit the directional unit as shown,
noting the marking on the front.
 Bend the retaining tabs back and
approx. 45° inwards to hold the
directional unit in place.
 Secure the exhaust socket to the
hose using a hose clip.
 Secure the hose to the directional
unit socket using a hose clip.
 Check that the hose is held securely.
 Push the telescopic chimney over the
installation frame:
– with the recirculation grilles at the
bottom for vented mode (AE),
– with the recirculation grilles at the top
for recirculation mode (RM).
 Bend the two retaining tabs outwards
to prevent the telescopic chimney
from slipping down again.
 Fit the four telescopic chimney
clamps. When the screws are
tightened, the clamps spread out and
push the telescopic expansion piece
 Bend back the two retaining tabs.
 Push the chimney over the telescopic
chimney and bend the retaining tabs
outwards again to prevent the
chimney from slipping down again.
Tighten the screws only until the top
edge of the telescopic chimney is
evenly aligned with the ceiling or the
spacer frame.
A non-return flap is supplied with the
hood or is already fitted in the exhaust
socket of the motor unit (depending on
 With vented mode (AE) insert the
non-return flap in the exhaust socket
if your ducting system is not
equipped with one.
Recirculation mode (RM) does not
require the non-return flap to be
inserted. If there is one present, it
should be removed.
 Hang the hood on the brackets,
making sure that the controls are at
the front.
 Secure the hood with the screws
 Connect the power cord. See
"Electrical connection."
 Unscrew both screws from the
installation frame again.
 Place the exhaust ducting onto the
exhaust socket.
The canopy can now be adjusted to the
desired height, observing the
permissible height ranges:
– With vented mode: upwards as far as
it will go, downwards only to the "A"
– With recirculation mode: upwards as
far as the "U", downwards as far as it
will go.
Follow the instructions in "Appliance
dimensions." Safety distances
between the cooktop and ventilation
hood must be observed.
 Raise the canopy to the desired
height and secure it with the screws.
 Hold the chimney securely, bend
back the retaining tabs and carefully
lower it.
The chimney will locate in the cut-out in
the canopy.
 With recirculation mode (RM)
ventilation hoods, insert the OdorFree
Charcoal Filter.
 Remove the grease filters from the
 Insert the safety screw on the inside.
 Carefully remove the protective foil
from the grease filters.
 Reinsert the grease filters.
Exhaust duct
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
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
INSTRUCTIONS" to reduce the risk
of personal injury. Follow all local
building codes when installing the
 Only use smooth pipes or flexible
duct hoses made from nonflammable materials for exhaust
 To achieve the greatest possible air
extraction with the lowest noise
levels, please note the following:
– The diameter of the exhaust duct
should not be less than 6" (150 mm).
– If flat exhaust ducts are used, the
cross section should not be smaller
than that of the exhaust connector.
– The exhaust duct should be as short
and straight as possible.
– If elbows are needed, make sure they
have a large radius.
– The exhaust duct itself must not be
kinked or compressed.
– Make sure that all connections are
secure and airtight.
Remember that any constriction of
the airflow will reduce extraction
performance and increase operating
 If the exhaust duct is to be routed
through an outside wall, we
recommend installing a telescopic
wall vent or a rooftop vent (available
as an optional accessory).
 If the exhaust air is to be conducted
into a vent flue, the intake piece must
be aligned with the flow direction of
the flue.
 When installing the exhaust duct
horizontally, you must slope it away
from the source by at least 1 cm per
meter (3/8" per 3 1/4'). This ensures
that condensate cannot drain back
into the ventilation hood.
 If the exhaust duct is to be routed
through rooms, ceiling space etc., the
temperatures in these different areas
may differ greatly, which means that
the problem of condensation will
need to be addressed. The exhaust
duct will need to be insulated.
Exhaust duct
Condensate trap
In addition to insulating the exhaust
duct, we recommend installing a
condensate trap to collect and
evaporate any condensate which might
Condensate traps are available for
exhaust ducts with a diameter of 5"
(125 mm) or 6" (150 mm).
 When installing a condensate trap,
make sure that it is positioned
vertically and, if possible, directly
above the hood outlet duct collar.
The arrow on the housing indicates
the direction of airflow.
