9000.018 538_Umschlag.qxd 26.08.2004 17:02 Uhr Seite 1 Operating and installation instructions LB 23… LB 54… LB 75… 9000.022 567.qxd 06.09.2006 11:36 Uhr Seite 2 Operation Instructions Operating modes Exhaust-air mode: ❑ The extractor-hood fan extracts the kitchen vapours and conveys them through the grease filter into the atmosphere. ❑ The grease filter absorbs the solid particles in the kitchen vapours. ❑ The kitchen is kept almost free of grease and odours. Circulating-air mode ❑ An activated carbon filter must be fitted for this operating mode (see Filters and maintenance). Activated carbon filters can be purchased from specialist outlets (see Optional accessories on the last page). ❑ The ventilator fan draws the vapours produced during cooking into the extractor hood, where they pass through the grease filter and the activated carbon filter before the clean air is discharged back into the kitchen. ❑ The grease filter absorbs the grease contained in the vapours produced during cooking. ❑ The activated carbon filter absorbs any odorous substances. D When the extractor hood is operated in exhaust-air mode simultaneously with a different burner which also makes use of the same chimney (such as gas, oil or coal-fired heaters, continuous-flow heaters, hot-water boilers) care must be taken to ensure that there is an adequate supply of fresh air which will be needed by the burner for combustion. 2 Safe operation is possible provided that the underpressure in the room where the burner is installed does not exceed 4 Pa (0.04 mbar). This can be achieved if combustion air can flow through non-lockable openings, e.g. in doors, windows and via the airintake/exhaust-air wall box or by other technical measures, such as reciprocal interlocking, etc. If the air intake is inadequate, there is a risk of poisoning from combustion gases which are drawn back into the room. An air-intake/exhaust-air wall box by itself is no guarantee that the limiting value will not be exceeded. Note: When assessing the overall requirement, the combined ventilation system for the entire household must be taken into consideration. This rule does not apply to the use of cooking appliances, such as hobs and ovens. Unrestricted operation is possible if the extractor hood is used in recirculating mode – with activated carbon filter. If no activated carbon filter is installed, it is not possible to bind the odorous substances in the cooking vapours. 9000.022 567.qxd 06.09.2006 11:36 Uhr Seite 3 Before using the first time Important notes: ❑ The Instructions for Use apply to several versions of this appliance.

The most effective method of removing vapours produced during cooking is to: ❑ Switch the ventilator ON as soon as you begin cooking. ❑ Switch the ventilator OFF a few minutes after you have finished cooking. Operating controls on different models on off 1 0 2 P Light Intensive setting Fan settings Light P 3 2 The filter mat is made from material that is itself virtually non-inflammable. Caution: As it becomes more and more saturated with grease however, the filter becomes increasingly inflammable. The efficiency of the extractor hood can also be adversely affected. Important: Renewing the fleece filter at appropriate intervals prevents the possibility of it catching fire as a result of a build-up of heat, such as occurs when deep-fat frying or roasting is taking place. Renewing the fleece filter: ❑ Under normal operating conditions (1 to 2 hours per day), the fleece filter will require replacing after 8 to 10 weeks. Printed fleece filters must be renewed no later than when the coloured printing has started to fade. ❑ Use only original replacement filters. In so doing you will ensure that safety regulations are upheld and the extractor hood performs as effectively as possible. Intensive setting Fan settings 1 Note: The light can be switched on at any time, including when the vapour extractor tray has been pushed back into the hood. 4 Fleece grease filter Disposing of the old fleece grease filter: Fleece grease filters do not contain any pollutants. They can be composted and disposed of as biodegradable waste. 9000.022 567.qxd 06.09.2006 11:36 Uhr Seite 5 Filters and maintenance Metal grease filter The filter mat is made of non-combustible metal. Caution: As it becomes more and more saturated with grease, the filter also becomes increasingly inflammable. The efficiency of the extractor hood can also be adversely affected. Important: Clean the metal grease filter at regular intervals. Cleaning the metal filter: Under normal operating conditions (1 to 2 hours per day), the metal grease filter will require cleaning after 8 to 10 weeks. ❑ The filter can be cleaned in a dishwasher. This can however cause slight discoloration. Important: Metal filters that are heavily saturated with grease should not be cleaned at the same time as any crockery, etc. ❑ If the filter mat is going to be cleaned by hand, soak it first of all in a hot detergent solution for several hours. Clean the filter with a brush, rinse it off thoroughly and allow it to drip dry. ❑ Use only original replacement filters. In so doing you will be ensuring that the extractor hood performs as effectively as possible. 2. Press the retaining spring and remove the filter frame. 3.

Valuable raw materials can be reclaimed by recycling old appliances. Before disposing of your old appliance, render it unusable. You received your new appliance in a protective shipping carton. All packaging materials are environmentally friendly and recyclable. Please contribute to a better environment by disposing of packaging materials in an environmentally-friendly manner. Please ask your dealer or inquire at your local authority about current means of disposal. The extractor hood can be used in exhaust air or circulating air mode. Always mount the extractor hood over Additional information concerning gas cookers: When installing gas hotplates, comply with the relevant national statutory regulations (e.g. in Germany: Technische Regeln Gasinstallation TRGI). Always comply with the currently valid regulations and installation instructions supplied by the gas appliance manufacturer. Only one side of the extractor hood may be installed next to a high-sided unit or high wall. Gap at least 50 mm. Minimum distance on gas hotplates between the upper edge of the trivet and lower edge of the extractor hood: 650 mm. the centre of the hob. Minimum distance between electric hob and bottom edge of extractor hood: 650 mm. The extractor hood must not be installed over a solid fuel cooker – a potential fire hazard (e.g. flying sparks) – unless the cooker features a closed, non-removable cover and all national regulations are observed. The smaller the gap between the extractor hood and hotplates, the greater the likelihood that droplets will form on the underside of the extractor hood. 10 min 650 9000.022 567.qxd 06.09.2006 11:36 Uhr Seite 11 Prior to installation Exhaust-air mode The exhaust air is discharged upwards through a ventilation shaft or directly through the outside wall into the open. D Exhaust air should neither be directed into a smoke or exhaust flue that is currently used for other purposes, nor into a shaft that is used for ventilating rooms in which stoves or fireplaces are also located. Exhaust air may be discharged in accordance with official and statutory regulations only (e.g. national building regulations). Local authority regulations must be observed when discharging air into smoke or exhaust flues that are not otherwise in use. D When the extractor hood is operated in exhaust-air mode simultaneously with a different burner which also makes use of the same chimney (such as gas, oil or coal-fired heaters, continuous-flow heaters, hot-water boilers) care must be taken to ensure that there is an adequate supply of fresh air which will be needed by the burner for combustion. Safe operation is possible provided that the underpressure in the room where the burner is installed does not exceed 4 Pa (0.04 mbar). This can be achieved if the combustion air can be replenished by being able to flow through non-closeable openings such as in doors, windows, wall ventilation boxes, or by alternative technical measures such as reciprocally shutting the other device off, etc. If the air intake is inadequate, there is a risk of poisoning from combustion gases which are drawn back into the room. An air-intake/exhaust-air wall box by itself is no guarantee that the limiting value will not be exceeded. Note: When assessing the overall requirement, the combined ventilation system for the entire household must be taken into consideration. This rule does not apply to the use of cooking appliances, such as hobs and ovens. All legal requirements concerning the discharge of exhaust air must be observed. Unrestricted operation is possible if the extractor hood is used in recirculating mode – with activated carbon filter. The extractor hood should be fitted with a one-way flap for exhaust-air mode if there is not already one installed in the exhaust-air pipe or wall box. If a one-way flap is not enclosed with the appliance, purchase one from a specialist outlet (see optional accessories on the last page). Attaching the one-way flap ❑ Insert the two lugs on the one-way flap into the holes on the air-pipe connector or air outlet and lock into position. Before installing the one-way flap, ensure that the lettering or stamp is on the outside. 11 9000.022 567.qxd 06.09.2006 11:36 Uhr Seite 12 Prior to installation Optimum performance of the extractor hood: ❑ Short, smooth extraction pipe. ❑ As few pipe bends as possible. ❑ Largest possible pipe diameter (preferably 150 mm ø) and large pipe bends. ❑ Round pipes: We recommend for single-motor model, inner diameter of at least 120 mm for double-motor model. inner diameter of at least 150 mm ❑ Flat ducts must have an inner crosssection equivalent to round pipes which have an inner diameter of 120/150 mm. 120 mm l approx. 113 cm2 150 mm l approx. 177 cm2 ❑ If pipe diameters differ: use sealing strip. ❑ Ensure an adequate air supply for exhaust-air mode.
