Warning and Safety instructions
Using at the same time as other heating appliances that depend on the air
from the room
 Warning - danger of toxic fumes
Great care should be taken when using the cooker hood at the
same time and in the same room or area of the house as another
heating appliance which depends on the air in the room.
Such appliances include gas, oil, wood or coal-fired boilers and
heaters, continuous flow or other water heaters, gas hobs,
cookers or ovens which draw air in from the room and duct
exhaust gases out through a chimney or extraction ducting.
When used in extraction mode, with or without an external motor
fitted, or in recirculation mode with a recirculation box installed
outside the room, the appliance draws air in from the room in
which it is installed and from neighbouring rooms.
If there is insufficient air, an underpressure will occur. The heating
appliance will be starved of oxygen, impairing combustion.
Harmful gases could be drawn out of the chimney or extraction
ducting back into the room, with potentially fatal consequences.
8
Warning and Safety instructions
In order to ensure safe operation, and to prevent gases given off
by the heating appliances from being drawn back into the room
when the cooker hood and the heater are in operation
simultaneously, an underpressure in the room of 0.04 mbar (4 pa)
is the maximum permissible.
Ventilation can be maintained by air inlets which cannot be
blocked, in windows, doors or outside wall vents, or by other
technical measures, such as ensuring that the cooker hood can
only be switched on when the heating appliance is switched off or
vice versa. A ventilation brick alone is not generally sufficient to
ensure safe ventilation.
The overall ventilation condition of the dwelling must be taken into
account. If in any doubt, the advice of a competent builder or, for
gas a qualified gas fitter (registered with an official gas safety
body in accordance with national safety regulations, GasSafe in
the UK) must be sought.
If the cooker hood is used in recirculation mode, where the air is
directed back into the room in which it is located, operating a
heating appliance which depends on the room air at the same
time is no cause for concern.
9
Warning and Safety instructions
Correct use
 Never use a naked flame beneath the cooker hood. To avoid the
danger of fire, do not flambé or grill over a naked flame.
When switched on, the cooker hood could draw flames into the filter.
Fat deposits could ignite, presenting a fire hazard.
 The cooker hood can become damaged when exposed to
excessive heat.
– When using the cooker hood over a gas hob, ensure that any
burners in use are always covered by a pan. Switch the cooking
zone off when a pan is removed, even for a short time.
– Select a pan which is suitable for the size of the burner.
– Regulate the flame so that it does not burn up the sides of the
pan.
– Avoid overheating the pan (e.g. when cooking with a wok).
 Always switch the cooker hood on when a cooking zone is in use,
otherwise condensation may collect in the hood, which could cause
corrosion.
 When cooking with oil or fat, chip pans and deep fat fryers etc, do
not leave the pans unattended. Never leave an open grill unattended
when grilling. Overheated oil and fat can ignite and could set the
cooker hood on fire.
10
Warning and Safety instructions
 Do not use the cooker hood without the filters in place. This way
you will avoid the risk of grease and dirt getting into the appliance
and hindering its smooth operation.
 There is a risk of fire if the cooker hood is not cleaned as
described in these operating instructions.
 The cooker hood can get very hot during cooking due to heat
rising from the hob.
Do not touch the housing or the grease filters until the cooker hood
has cooled down.
Correct installation
 Refer to the cooker or hob manufacturer's instructions as to
whether a cooker hood may be operated above the cooker/hob.
 Safety regulations prohibit the fitting of a cooker hood over solid
fuel stoves.
 Insufficient distance between the cooker or hob and the cooker
hood can result in damage to the hood.
The minimum safety distances between the top of the cooker or hob
and the bottom of the cooker hood given in the "Installation" section
must be maintained, unless the hob manufacturer states that a
greater distance is required.
If more than one cooking appliance is fitted beneath the cooker
hood, and they have different minimum safety distances to the
cooker hood, select the greater distance.
 The distances given in "Installation" must be observed when
fitting the cooker hood.
11
Warning and Safety instructions
 Exhaust ducting must be of non-inflammable material. Suitable
material is available from Miele specialist dealers or the Miele Spares
Dept.
 The appliance must not be connected to a chimney or flue which
is in use. Neither should it be connected to ducting which ventilates
rooms with fireplaces.
 If exhaust air is to be extracted into a chimney or ventilation duct
no longer used for other purposes, seek professional advice.
Cleaning and care
 Do not use a steam cleaning appliance to clean this appliance.
The steam could reach electrical components and cause a short
circuit.
 You could injure yourself on the open vapour canopy. Only open it
when necessary.
Accessories
 Only use genuine original Miele accessories with this appliance.
Using accessories from other manufacturers will invalidate the
guarantee, and Miele cannot accept liability.
12
Caring for the environment
Disposal of the packing
material
The packaging is designed to protect
the appliance from damage during
transportation. The packaging materials
used are selected from materials which
are environmentally friendly for disposal
and should be recycled.
Recycling the packaging reduces the
use of raw materials in the
manufacturing process and also
reduces the amount of waste in landfill
sites.
Disposal of your old appliance
Electrical and electronic appliances
often contain valuable materials. They
also contain materials which, if handled
or disposed of incorrectly, could be
potentially hazardous to human health
and to the environment. They are,
however, essential for the correct
functioning of your appliance. Please
do not therefore dispose of it with your
household waste.
Please dispose of it at your local
community waste collection / recycling
centre or contact your Dealer for
advice.
Ensure that it presents no danger to
children while being stored for disposal.
13
Modes of operation
Depending on the model of the cooker
hood, the following options are
available:
Extraction mode
The air is drawn in and cleaned by the
grease filter and directed outside.
Non-return flap
The non-return flap is designed to
prevent the exchange of room and
outside air taking place.
The flap is closed when the cooker
hood is switched off.
When the cooker hood is switched on,
the non-return flap opens for the
cooking vapours to be blown directly
outside.
If the on-site ventilation system does
not have a non-return flap, the nonreturn flap supplied must be fitted in the
exhaust socket in the motor unit.
14
Recirculation mode
Recirculation mode cooker hoods
require charcoal filters. These are
available as optional accessories: see
"Technical Data".
The air is drawn in and cleaned first by
the grease filter and then by a charcoal
filter. The cleaned air is then
recirculated back into the kitchen.
Operation with an external
motor
(...EXT model cooker hoods)
Cooker hoods set up for operation with
an external motor have to be connected
to a Miele external motor located in a
suitable position outside the room in
which the cooker hood is installed. The
external motor is linked to the cooker
hood via a connection cable and then
operated using the controls on the
cooker hood.
Modes of operation
Con@ctivity 2.0 function
Automatic control
The cooker hood has a communication
facility which enables the automatic
operation of the cooker hood
depending on the operational state of
the hob.
The hob transmits information about its
operational status via a wireless signal
to the cooker hood.
– When the hob is switched on, the
hob lighting comes on independently
and then after a short time the fan
also comes on.
– During cooking the cooker hood
automatically sets the power level
according to the number of cooking
zones in operation and their power
levels.
– After switching the hob off the fan
and the hob lighting will switch off
automatically after a specified period
of time.
See "Operation" for detailed
information about this function.
To make use of the communication
facility the hob must be fitted with a
Con@ctivity 2.0 Stick .
Refer to the installation instructions for
the Con@ctivity 2.0 Stick to check
whether it is compatible with your hob.
To use the Con@ctivity 2.0 function, a
wireless connection must be
established between the hob and the
cooker hood (see "Activating
Con@ctivity 2.0").

Operation (Automatic mode)
When Con@ctivity 2.0 is activated, the
cooker hood always works in automatic
mode (see "Activating Con@ctivity
2.0").
To operate the cooker hood manually,
see "Cooking without Con@ctivity 2.0".
Cooking with Con@ctivity 2.0
(Automatic mode)
 Switch a cooking zone on at the
power level you want.
The cooker hood lighting will come on.
After a few seconds the fan will come
on, first at power level 2, then it will
switch immediately to power level 1.
The cooker hood selects the power
level automatically during cooking.
This is determined by the total output of
the hob, i.e, the number of cooking
zones in operation and the power levels
selected.
 If you select a higher power level or
are using several cooking zones, the
cooker hood will switch to a higher
power level.
 When you reduce the power level or
the number of cooking zones on the
hob, the cooker hood power level is
also reduced.
Examples for power levels 1 to 4
18
Reaction time
The cooker hood reacts with a slight
delay because altering the power level
on the hob does not immediately result
in a reduction or increase in cooking
vapours.
Because the hob transmits the
information to the cooker hood at
intervals, this can also cause delays.
The reaction can vary from a few
seconds to a couple of minutes.
Operation (Automatic mode)
Cooking process
Switching off
 If for example you switch on a
cooking zone at the highest power
level to heat a pan for frying and
reduce the power level after approx.
60 to 90 seconds*, a cooking process
is recognised (*60 seconds to 5
minutes for a HiLight hob).
 Switch off all cooking zones.
The cooker hood switches itself on and
when the hob power level has been
reduced, the hood switches to power
level 3 and remains at that level for
approx. 5 minutes.
After that the cooker hood power level
is determined automatically by the
Con@ctivity function.
 You can select another power level
manually before then.
The cooker hood fan will reduce its
power level over the next few minutes
and will eventually switch itself off.
This helps to neutralise any lingering
vapours and odours in the air.
– From the intensive setting 4, the fan
switches immediately to level 3.
– If the fan is operating at level 3, it will
switch to level 2 after approx. 1
minute.
– From level 2, the fan switches to level
1 after 2 minutes.
– After 2 minutes at level 1 the fan
switches itself off.
– After another 30 seconds the lighting
switches off.
The cooking process is then finished.

Energy saving tips
This cooker hood operates very
efficiently and economically. The
following will help you to save even
more energy when using it:
– Ensure that there is sufficient
ventilation in the kitchen when
cooking. In extraction mode, if there
is insufficient air flow the cooker
hood cannot operate efficiently and
this causes increased operating
noise levels.
– Always cook with the lowest possible
setting. This produces fewer cooking
vapours, so you can use a lower
cooker hood power level and
therefore benefit from reduced
energy consumption.
– Make sure that you switch the
cooker hood off after use.
If cooking vapours and odours still
need to be removed from the
kitchen air after cooking, use the
run-on function. The fan will
switch off automatically after the
selected run-on time.
– Clean or change the filters at regular
intervals. Heavily soiled filters reduce
performance, increase the risk of fire
and are unhygienic.
– Use the Con@ctivity function. The
cooker hood will switch on and off
automatically at the optimum power
level for the cooking you are doing,
which ensures low energy
consumption.
– If you are operating the cooker hood
manually, please note the following:
– Check the power level selected on
the cooker hood. A lower power
level is generally sufficient for the
majority of cooking. Only use the
intensive setting when necessary.
– When a large volume of cooking
vapours are being produced,
switch to a high power level in
good time. This is more efficient
than operating the cooker hood for
longer to try to capture cooking
vapours which have already been
distributed throughout the kitchen.
25
Cleaning and care
Casing
General information
The surfaces and controls are
susceptible to scratches and
abrasion.
Please observe the following
cleaning instructions.
 All external surfaces and controls can
be cleaned using hot water with a
small amount of washing-up liquid
applied with a well wrung-out soft
sponge or cloth.
 After cleaning, wipe the surfaces dry
using a soft cloth.
Do not use:
– cleaning agents containing soda,
acids, chlorides or solvents,
– abrasive cleaning agents, e.g.
powder cleaners or cream cleaners
and abrasive sponges, as well as pot
scourers or sponges which have
been used previously with abrasive
cleaning agents. These will damage
the surface material.
26
Important for appliances with
stainless steel surfaces
 Stainless steel surfaces can be
cleaned with a proprietary nonabrasive cleaning agent designed
specifically for use on stainless steel.
 To help prevent re-soiling, a
proprietary conditioning agent for
stainless steel (available from Miele)
can also be used. Follow the
manufacturer’s instructions on the
packaging.
Important for appliances with glass
surfaces
 Glass surfaces can be cleaned using
a proprietary non-abrasive cleaning
agent designed specifically for use
on glass.
Cleaning and care
Grease filter
Removing a grease filter
The re-usable metal grease filter in the
appliance removes solid particles from
the kitchen vapours (grease, dust, etc)
preventing soiling of the cooker hood.
 An oversaturated filter is a fire
hazard.
Cleaning interval
Grease which is left to accumulate over
time will harden and become difficult to
remove. The grease filter should
therefore be cleaned at least every 3 - 4
weeks.
The operating hours counter reminds
you to clean the filter regularly. The
grease filter symbol  will light up.
 You can set the operating hours
counter for the grease filter to suit the
type of cooking you do (see
"Operation").
 Insert your finger at the top edge of
the second slat (see diagram) and
pull the vapour canopy out of the
catch.
The canopy will swing open.
Putting pressure on the open canopy
can damage it. Do not lean on or
against the canopy.
 To take out the grease filter, release
the locking clip on the filter, swing the
filter forwards by approx. 45°, unhook
it at the back and remove it.
 Close the canopy.
27
Cleaning and care
Cleaning the grease filter by hand
 Clean the filter with a soft nylon brush
in a mild solution of hot water and a
small amount of washing-up liquid.
Do not use "neat" washing up liquid.
Unsuitable cleaning agents
Unsuitable cleaning agents can cause
damage to the surface of the filters if
used regularly.
Do not use:
– cleaning agents containing descaling
agents
– powder cleaners, cream cleaners
– aggressive multi-purpose cleaning
agents or spray cleaners for grease
– oven sprays
Cleaning the grease filter in a
dishwasher
 Place the filter as upright as possible
in the lower basket, or at an angle,
ensuring the spray arm is not
obstructed.
 Use a proprietary household
dishwasher detergent.
 Select a dishwasher programme with
a wash temperature between 50°C
and 65°C.
Depending on the cleaning agent
used, cleaning a filter in a dishwasher
can cause permanent discolouration
to internal surfaces. However, this will
not affect the functioning of the filter
in any way.
After cleaning
 After cleaning, leave the filter to dry
on an absorbent surface before
replacing it.
 When removing the filter for cleaning,
clean off any residues of oil or fat
from the now accessible casing and
the interior surfaces of the canopy to
prevent the risk of these catching fire.
28
Cleaning and care
 Replace the grease filter, making sure
that the locking clip is facing
outwards.
Charcoal filter
Recirculation cooker hoods must be
fitted with a charcoal filter in addition to
the grease filter. This is designed to
absorb cooking odours.
It is fitted in the top of the cooker hood.
Replacement charcoal filters can be
obtained from Miele, your Miele dealer
or via the internet at www.mieleshop.com. See "Technical data" for
type and reference number.
 If the grease filter is inadvertently
replaced the wrong way round, insert
a small screwdriver blade into the slit
to disengage the clip.
Fitting/replacing a charcoal filter
 Take the charcoal filter out of its
packaging.
 Close the canopy and press it on the
right and left into the catch.
Resetting the grease filter operating
hours counter
After cleaning, the operating hours
counter needs to be re-set.
 Whilst the fan is switched on, press
the Grease filter control  for
approx. 3 seconds, until only the 1 is
flashing.
The Grease filter symbol  goes out.
If you want to clean the grease filters
before the operating hours counter has
reached its maximum,
 Touch the Grease filter control  for
approx. 6 seconds, until only the 1 is
flashing.
 Fit the charcoal filter into the holder in
the top of the cooker hood.
 When fitting for the first time, activate
the operating hours counter (see
"Operation").
29
Cleaning and care
When to change the charcoal filter
 Always replace the charcoal filter
when it no longer absorbs kitchen
odours effectively.
It should, however be replaced at
least every 6 months.
The charcoal filter operating hours
symbol  will light up to remind you to
change the charcoal filter regularly.
 The charcoal filter operating hours
counter needs to be activated before
using for the first time (see
"Operation").
Resetting the charcoal filter

Installation
Installation recommendations
– Account should also be taken of the
height of the person who will be
using the hood most often. They
should have sufficient space to work
comfortably at the hob, and be able
to reach the hood controls with ease.
– Please be aware that if positioned
too high, extraction will be inefficient.
– To achieve optimum vapour
extraction, the cooker hood must
cover the hob. It should be
positioned centrally over the hob, not
to the side of it.
– The hob should be no wider than the
cooker hood, and if possible, it
should be narrower.
– The installation area must be easily
accessible. The cooker hood should
be easily accessible and easy to
dismantle in the event that service is
required. This should be taken into
consideration when planning the
position of cupboards, shelves,
ceilings or features in the vicinity of
the cooker hood.
36
Connection for air extraction
 If this cooker hood is used at the
same time as a heating appliance
that relies on oxygen from the same
room there is a risk in certain
circumstances of toxic fumes
building up.
It is essential that the "Warning and
Safety" instructions are observed.
The cooker hood should be installed
according to local and national
building regulations. Seek approval
from the building inspector where
necessary.
– Ensure that all connections are
strong and airtight.
Remember that any constriction of
the air flow will reduce extraction
performance and increase operating
noise.
 If the exhaust is ducted through an
outside wall, a telescopic wall vent or
a roof vent (available as an optional
accessory) is recommended.
 Use smooth or flexible ducting made
from approved non-flammable
materials for exhaust ducting.
 When using an external motor, make
sure that the exhaust ducting is
sufficiently rigid. The external motor
can cause an underpressure which
can result in the exhaust ducting
distorting.
 To achieve the most efficient air
extraction with the lowest noise
levels, please note the following:
– To ensure efficient air extraction, the
diameter of the exhaust ducting
should not be less than 150 mm.
– If flat ducting is being used, the cross
section must not be smaller than the
cross sectional area of the exhaust
socket.
– The exhaust ducting should be as
short and straight as possible.
 If the exhaust air is to be ducted into
a flue, the ducting must be directed
in the flow direction of the flue.
 When ducting is horizontal it must be
laid to slope away at at least 1 cm
per metre. This is to ensure that
condensate cannot drain back into
the appliance.
 If the exhaust ducting is to run
through rooms, ceiling space etc.
where there may be great variations
in temperature between the different
areas, the problem of condensation
will need to be addressed. The
exhaust ducting will need to be
suitably insulated.
– Only use wide radius bends.
– The exhaust ducting must not be
kinked or compressed.
37
Connection for air extraction
Condensate trap
In addition to insulating the exhaust
ducting, we recommend that a suitable
condensate trap is also installed to
collect and evaporate any condensate
which may occur.
Condensate traps for 125 mm or 150
mm ducting are available as optional
accessories.
A condensate trap can only be fitted in
extraction ducting which is directed
upwards out of the cooker hood.
 When installing a condensate trap,
ensure that it is positioned vertically
and as closely as possible above the
exhaust socket.
The arrow on the housing indicates
the direction of air-flow.
A condensate trap is integrated in
cooker hoods which are designed for
connection to an external motor
(model......EXT).
38
Silencer
To achieve even further reductions in
noise levels, a special silencer (optional
accessory) can be fitted in the ducting
system.
Extraction mode
The silencer not only reduces noise
from the motor outside the house, but
also sounds from outside (e.g. traffic
noise). For this reason the silencer must
be positioned as close as possible to
the ducting exit .
Connection for air extraction
Recirculation mode
The silencer needs to be positioned
between the exhaust socket and the
directional unit . Ensure there is
adequate space for fitting it.
Extraction mode with external motor
To minimise noise from the motor in the
kitchen, the silencer should be
positioned in front of the external motor
 if possible, or, if the ducting is long,
above the exhaust socket on the
cooker hood . In the case of an
external motor located inside the
house, fitting a silencer behind the
external motor  reduces the noise of
the motor outside the house.
39
Electrical connection
All electrical work should be
undertaken by a suitably qualified
and competent person in strict
accordance with current national and
local safety regulations (BS 7671 in
the UK).
Installation, repairs and other work
by unqualified persons could be
dangerous, for which the
manufacturer cannot be held liable.
Ensure power is not supplied to the
appliance until after installation or
repair work has been carried out.
Do not connect the appliance to the
mains electricity supply by an
extension lead. These do not
guarantee the required safety of the
appliance.
The connection data is given on the
data plate. This is visible when the
grease filters have been removed.
Ensure that this data matches the
household mains supply.
Connection of this appliance should be
made via a suitable isolator or a double
pole fused spur connection unit which
complies with national and local safety
regulations and the On-Off switch
should be easily accessible after the
appliance has been built in. When
switched off there must be an all-pole
contact gap of 3 mm in the switch
(including switch, fuses and relays
according to EN 60335).
40
If the switch is not accessible after
installation (depending on country), an
additional means of disconnection must
be provided for all poles.
For extra safety it is advisable to protect
the appliance with a suitable residual
current device (RCD). Contact a
qualified electrician for advice.
