system which complies with current
local and national safety regulations. It
is most important that this basic safety
requirement is present and tested
regularly, and where there is any doubt,
the household wiring system should be
inspected by a qualified electrician.
The manufacturer cannot be held liable
for the consequences of an inadequate
earthing system (e.g. electric shock).
~ For safety reasons, this appliance
may only be used when it has been
fully installed.
~ Only open the housing as described
in the instructions given in the
installation sheet and in the Cleaning
and care section of this booklet. Under
no circumstances should any other
parts of the housing be opened.
Tampering with electrical connections
or components and mechanical parts is
highly dangerous to the user, and can
cause operational faults.
6
~ Installation, maintenance and
repairs may only be carried out by a
Miele authorised person in accordance
with current national and local safety
regulations.
Repairs and other work by unqualified
persons could be dangerous. The
manufacturer cannot be held liable for
unauthorised work.
~ A damaged connection cable must
only be replaced by an approved and
suitably qualified technician.
~ Faulty components must only be
replaced by genuine Miele original
parts. The manufacturer can only
guarantee the safety of the appliance
when Miele replacement parts are
used.
~ During installation, maintenance and
repair work, the appliance must be
disconnected from the mains electricity
supply. It is only completely isolated
from the electricity supply when:
– it is switched off at the isolator, or
– the screw-out fuse is removed (in
countries where this is applicable), or
– the mains fuse is disconnected, or
– it is switched off at the wall socket
and the plug withdrawn.
Warning and Safety instructions
~ Do not connect the appliance to the
mains electricity supply by a
multi-socket unit or an extension lead.
These do not guarantee the required
safety of the appliance (e.g. danger of
overheating).
Using at the same time as other
heating appliances that depend on
the air from the room
Warning - danger of toxic fumes
~ For appliances with an external fan
motor fitted (...EXT models) the
connection of the two units must be
made using the connection cable and
the plug connectors.
These models may only be combined
with a Miele external motor.
~ This rangehood must not be
installed and operated in mobile
installations (e.g. on a ship).
~ In areas which may be subject to
infestation by cockroaches or other
vermin, pay particular attention to
keeping the appliance and its
surroundings in a clean condition at all
times. Any damage which may be
caused by cockroaches or other vermin
will not be covered by the warranty.
~ Great care should be taken when
using the rangehood 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 cooktops, 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, 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 may 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.
7
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 rangehood
and the heater are in operation
simultaneously, an underpressure of
0.04 mbar (4 pa) is the maximum
permissible in the room.
Ventilation can be maintained by air
inlets which must not be blocked, in
windows, doors and outside wall vents,
or by other technical measures, such
as ensuring that the rangehood 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 must be sought.
If the rangehood is being operated in
recirculation mode, the above
restrictions do not apply.
8
Warning and Safety instructions
Correct use
~ Never use an open flame beneath
the rangehood. To avoid the danger of
fire, do not flambé or grill over an open
flame.
When switched on, the rangehood
could draw flames into the filter. Fat
particles drawn into the rangehood
present a fire hazard.
~ Do not use the rangehood 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.
~ The filters should be regularly
cleaned or changed as appropriate.
Saturated filters are a fire hazard. See
"Cleaning and care".
~ When using the rangehood over a
gas cooktop, 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.
Regulate the flame so that it does not
burn up the sides of the pan.
Do not allow the pans to overheat
excessively (e.g. when using a wok).
The rangehood can become damaged
when exposed to excessive heat.
~ The rangehood can get very hot
~ Always switch the rangehood on
when a cooking zone is in use,
otherwise condensation may collect in
the hood, which could cause corrosion.
Correct installation
~ 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 rangehood on fire.
during cooking due to heat rising from
the cooktop.
Do not touch the housing or the grease
filters until the rangehood has cooled
down.
~ Do not use a steam-cleaner to clean
this appliance. Pressurised steam
could reach the electrical components
and cause a short circuit.
~ Refer to the cooktop manufacturer's
instructions as to whether a rangehood
may be operated above the cooktop.
~ The minimum safety distances
between the top of the cooktop or
cooktop and the bottom of the
rangehood given in the "Appliance
dimensions" section of this booklet must
be maintained, unless the cooktop
manufacturer states that a greater
safety distance is required.
If more than one cooking appliance is
fitted beneath the rangehood, and they
have different minimum safety
distances to the rangehood, select the
greater distance.
9
Warning and Safety instructions
~ Safety regulations prohibit the fitting
of a rangehood over solid fuel stoves.
~ All ducting, pipework and fittings
must be of non-flammable material.
These can be obtained from Miele or
from builders' merchants.
~ The appliance must not be
connected to a chimney or vent 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.
Accessories
~ Only use genuine Miele spare parts
and accessories with this appliance. If
spare parts or accessories from other
manufacturers are used, this will
invalidate the warranty, and Miele
cannot accept liability.
The manufacturer cannot be held
liable for damage caused by
non-compliance with these Warning
and Safety instructions.
10
Modes of operation
The rangehood works with
. . . air recirculation:
. . . air extraction:
The air is drawn in and cleaned by the
stainless steel outer filter and the
grease filter, and then directed outside.
If the on-site ventilation system does
not have a non-return flap, then the
non-return flap supplied with the
appliance must be fitted
Having a non-return flap fitted in the
ducting ensures that air, once ducted
to the outside, cannot get back into the
room again.
The flap is closed when the rangehood
is switched off.
When the rangehood is switched on,
the non-return flap opens for the
cooking vapours to be blown directly
outside.
Please note, the performance of
this rangehood hinges greatly on
the installed ducting to vent the
vapours. Poor choice of ducting
results in poor rangehood
performance. For ducting
recommendations, please refer to
the relevant section in these
operating instructions or contact
a specialised installer.
(available as an optional extra with a
conversion kit and charcoal filter: see
"Technical Data")
The air is drawn in and cleaned first by
the stainless steel outer filter and the
grease filter and then by a charcoal
filter. The cleaned air is then
recirculated back into the kitchen
through grilles in the top of the
rangehood extension piece.
Charcoal filters are available to order
through your Chartered Agent or from
Miele. (See back cover for contact
details and "Technical Data" for model
number).
Before using the rangehood in
recirculation mode, ensure that the
charcoal filter is in place. See
"Cleaning and care".
. . . an external motor:
(EXT models only)
EXT models are designed to be
connected to an external motor located
outside the room.
The external motor is connected to the
rangehood by means of a control
cable, and is operated by the controls
on the rangehood.

Cleaning and care
,Before any cleaning or
maintenance work is carried out,
disconnect the rangehood from the
mains supply. Ensure that:
– it is switched off at the wall
socket and the plug removed, or
– the mains fuse is withdrawn, or
– the screw-out fuse is removed
(in countries where this is
applicable).
,Exercise caution when changing
halogen lamps. They get very hot
during use, and remain hot for some
time after being switched off. Do not
touch the surface directly when
changing a lamp, as grease particles
from your fingers will adhere to the
surface and damage it.
The halogen lamps can also be
damaged if water is used to clean
them.
Wait several minutes after switching
off before beginning cleaning.

Cleaning and care
Important for appliances with
stainless steel housing
(This infomation does not apply to the
controls).
Stainless steel surfaces can be cleaned
using the Original Miele all purpose
microfibre cloth, or with a proprietary
non-abrasive cleaning agent designed
specifically for use on stainless steel.
To help prevent re-soiling, a
conditioning agent for stainless steel
can also be used.
Follow the manufacturer's instructions
and apply sparingly with an even
pressure following the direction of the
grain.
Important for appliances with
aluminium housing:
Aluminium is affected by the way that
light falls on it, by the surrounding
environment and by the angle you
observe it from.
Aluminium surfaces and controls
may suffer discolouration or damage
if soiling is left on for too long.
Remove any soiling straight away.
Observe the General notes on cleaning
earlier in this section.
Do not use:
– stainless steel cleaning agents,
– cleaning agents containing
descaling agents,
– dishwasher cleaner,
– oven sprays.
Controls
The controls may suffer
discolouration or damage if soiling is
left on them for too long.
Remove any soiling straight away.
Observe the "General notes" on
cleaning earlier in this section.
Do not use stainless steel cleaning
agents on the controls.
Glass surfaces
Glass surfaces can be cleaned using a
proprietary non-abrasive cleaning
agent designed specifically for use on
glass.
Avoid oven sprays.
Stainless steel outer filter and
grease filter
The stainless steel outer filter and the
re-usable metal grease filter remove
solid particles from the kitchen vapours
(grease, dust, etc.), preventing soiling
of the rangehood.
The stainless steel outer filter and
grease filter should be cleaned
regularly (at least every 3-4 weeks) to
avoid a built-up of grease, but always
clean them immediately if the grease
filter indicator light comes on.
Both the outer filter and the grease filter
should be cleaned.
,An oversaturated filter is a fire
hazard.
22
Cleaning and care
To remove the stainless steel outer
filter
Cleaning the grease filter and the
outer filter by hand
^ Clean the grease filter and the outer
filter with a soft nylon brush in a mild
solution of hot water and a small
amount of washing-up liquid.
Do not use undiluted washing up
liquid.

– cleaning agents containing
descaling agents,
^ To remove the outer filter, pull down
on the quick-release catches. When
doing this, hold the filter securely so
that it does not fall on the cooktop
surface below.
To remove the grease filter
– powder cleaners, cream cleaners or
abrasive all-purpose cleaning
agents,
– oven sprays.
Cleaning the grease filter and the
outer filter in the dishwasher
^ Place the filters as upright as
possible in the lower basket. Ensure
the spray arm is not obstructed.
^ Do not wash at more than 65 °C. If a
Miele dishwasher is being used,
select the Sensor wash programme.
^ Use a mild dishwasher detergent.
^ Hold the grease filter by the grip, and
pull it downwards to remove it.
Take care not to let the grease filter
fall onto the cooktop.
Depending on the cleaning agent
used, cleaning the filters in a
dishwasher can cause permanent
discolouration to the surface.
However, this will not affect the
functioning of the filters in any way.
23
Cleaning and care
^ After cleaning, leave the filters to dry
for a while on an absorbent surface
before putting them back in place.
To replace the stainless steel outer
filter
^ When removing the filters for
cleaning, also clean off any residues
of oil or fat from the now accessible
housing to prevent the risk of these
catching fire.
^ After cleaning the filters, press the
grease filter control for approximately
3 seconds to reset the operating
hours counter.
The indicator lamp will go out.
If the stainless steel outer filter and the
grease filter are cleaned before the
operating hours counter has reached
its maximum, the grease filter control
should be pressed for approximately 6
seconds to reset the counter to zero.
To replace the grease filter
^ Holding the grease filter at an angle,
fit it into the front of the chimney and
then push it into position along the
front edge.
^ Then push it up into position at the
back, making sure it clicks into
position on both sides.
24
^ Fit the outer filter into the appliance
so that it hooks into the retainers at
the back, then push it upwards at the
front and make sure it engages in the
quick-release mechanism.
Cleaning and care
Fitting and replacing the
charcoal filter
If the rangehood is connected for
recirculation, a charcoal filter must be
inserted in addition to the grease filter.
This is designed to absorb cooking
odours.
It is fitted in the chimney above the
grease filter.
Replacement charcoal filters can be
obtained from your Chartered Agent
or Miele.
See back cover for contact details,
and "Technical data" for type and
reference number.
^ To remove the charcoal filter, pull
down on the tab at the back of the
filter.
^ Take the new filter out of its
packaging.
^ Before fitting or replacing the
charcoal filter, the outer filter and the
grease filter must first be taken out.
See previous section for instructions
on how to do this.
^ Fit the filter into the front of the
chimney; push it upwards at the
back, and press it firmly into position.
^ Replace the grease filter and then the
outer filter.
When fitting for the first time:
^ When fitting for the first time:
A guide is installed for extraction
mode which has to be removed for
recirculation mode.
Loosen the screws on it, and remove
it.
^ Activate the operating hours counter
(see "Use").
25
Cleaning and care
Always replace the filter immediately if
the lamp for the charcoal filter touch
control comes on, or if it is no longer
effective in absorbing kitchen odours.
It should be replaced at least every 6
months.
Used charcoal filters can be disposed
of with the normal household waste.
^ After fitting a new charcoal filter,
press the charcoal filter touch control
for approximately 3 seconds to re-set
the operating hours counter.
The indicator lamp will go out.

approximately 6 seconds to reset the
counter.
26
Cleaning and care
Changing a halogen lamp
^ Before any cleaning or maintenance
work, disconnect the rangehood from
the mains supply. Ensure that:
– it is switched off at the isolator, or
– it is switched off at the wall socket
and the plug is withdrawn, or
^ Remove the stainless steel outer filter
(see "Cleaning and care").
^ Pull the halogen lamp out of its
socket. Take care not to let the lamp
fall onto the cooktop below.
^ Insert the new halogen lamp into its
socket and carefully push into
position.
– the mains fuse is disconnected, or
– the screw-out fuse is removed (in
countries where this is applicable).
,Exercise caution when changing
halogen lamps. They get very hot
during use and remain hot for some

– When deciding on the safety
distance between the cooktop and
rangehood, please note that a
distance of 650 mm above electric
cooktops may be preferable to give
more working space under the
rangehood.
– Account should also be taken of the
height of the person who will be
using the rangehood most often. The
person should have sufficient space
to work comfortably at the cooktop,
and also be able to reach the
rangehood controls with ease.
– If positioned too high, extraction will
be inefficient.
– The height of the cooking appliance
must be taken into account when
planning the installation height of the
rangehood.

Installation
Dismantling
Before installation, it is important to
read the information given on the
following pages as well as the
"Appliance dimensions" and the
"Warning and Safety instructions" at
the beginning of this booklet.
This is particularly crucial when
using the rangehood at the same
time as a heating appliance that
relies on oxygen from the same
room to avoid the danger of toxic
fumes building up.
Should the appliance need to be
dismantled, follow the installation
instructions in reverse order as
described on the Installation sheet.
A lever is supplied to assist with the
removal of the tower.
Installation instructions
See enclosed Installation sheet for
instructions on how to install this
appliance.
Protective foil
(on stainless steel appliances)
The tower and extension piece have
protective foil around them to prevent
them being damaged during transport.
Please remove this foil before fitting
them. It can be peeled off easily.
32
^ After loosening the fixing screws on
the tower, push the lever between the
tower and the extension piece to
lever the tower out of its fixings.
Connection for air extraction
Important: To avoid the danger of
toxic fumes, please observe the
Warning and Safety instructions.
This is especially crucial when using
the rangehood at the same time as
another heating appliance which
relies on air from the same room.
The rangehood should be installed
according to local and national
building regulations. Seek approval
from the building inspector where
necessary.
– Only use smooth pipes or flexible
hoses made from non-flammable
materials for extraction connection.
– When using an external motor, make
sure that the extraction ducting is
sufficiently rigid. The external motor
can cause an underpressure which
can result in the exhaust ducting
distorting.
To achieve the greatest possible air
extraction with the lowest noise level,
please note the following:
– The diameter of the exhaust ducting
should not be less than 150 mm.
– If flat ducting is being used, the
diameter must not be smaller than
the diameter of the exhaust
connection.
– If exhaust ducting with a diameter of
less than 150 mm, or if flat ducting is
used, the noise level of the
rangehood will increase and
extraction will be less efficient.
– The exhaust ducting should be as
short and straight as possible.
– Only use wide radius bends.
– The exhaust ducting should not be
kinked or compressed.
– Ensure that all connections are
strong and airtight.
– Where 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 rangehood.
33
Connection for air extraction
– If the exhaust air is to be ducted into
the open air, the installation of a
telescopic wall vent or roof vent is
recommended.
Condensate trap
(optional extra)
– If the exhaust air is to be ducted into
a vent flue, the ducting must be
directed in the flow direction of the
flue.
Important!
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.
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
are available for C 125 mm or
C 150 mm ducting.
When installing a condensate trap,
ensure that it is positioned vertically
and, if possible, directly above the
exhaust connection. The arrow on the
housing indicates the direction of
air-flow.
The condensate trap will be integrated
in rangehoods which are designed to
be connected to an external fan
(model EXT).
34
Connection for air extraction
Silencer (DASD 150)
. . . With air extraction:
(optional extra)
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 a.
. . . With air extraction with an
external motor:
To achieve even further reductions in
noise levels, a special silencer can be
fitted in the ducting system...
To minimise fan noise in the kitchen, the
silencer should be positioned in front of
the motor b and, with longer exhaust
ducting, on the exhaust connection c
of the rangehood.
With an external motor installed within
the house, the use of a silencer behind
the external motor d enables a
reduction of fan noise by directing it
outside.
In all modes of operation, the most
effective noise reductions are
achieved if two silencers are fitted
one behind the other in the system.
35
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.
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 which
complies with national and local safety
regulations and the On-Off switch
should be easily accessible after the
appliance has been built in.
36
If the switch is not accessible after
installation, an additional means of
disconnection must be provided for all
poles.
For extra safety, it is advisable to install
a suitable residual current device
(RCD). Contact a qualified electrician
for advice.
