Functional description
The hood offers two modes of
operation:
Air extraction
Recirculation mode
The air is drawn in and cleaned by the
decor panel and the grease filter and
directed outside.
Air is drawn through the the decor
panel, grease filter and an active
charcoal filter. The filtered air is then
recirculated back into the kitchen
through a vent at the top of the hood’s
chimney.
The hood comes equipped with a
non-return flap. This flap automatically
closes when the hood is turned off so
that no exchange of outside air and
room air can occur. When the hood is
turned on, the air pressure of the
exhaust fan automatically opens the
flap blowing the inside air and cooking
odors outside.

ceiling for entrance of 6"
(150 mm) ductwork or 5"
(125 mm) ductwork with a reducing
collar.
For recirculation mode only 2) and
outlet installation are necessary.
The installation procedure differs
depending on the model and venting
method.
Before beginning the installation:
Do not install this exhaust hood over
cooktops burning solid fuel.
When installing the hood, make sure
that the following minimum
distance (S) between the top of a
cooking surface and the bottom of
the hood is:
- 22" (55 cm) above electric cooktops
- 26" (65 cm) above gas cooktops
- 26" (65 cm) above an open grill
Follow the safety distances
recommended by the cooktop
manufacturer in their installation and
operating instructions.
If there is more than one appliance
beneath the hood and they have
different minimum safety distances
always select the greater distance.
^ Read all instructions.
^ Determine height (S), regarding the
user’s body height, i.e. a comfortable
height for the user.
However, the greater the distance,
the less effectively cooking odors are
drawn in.
^ If the hood is fitted flush to the ceiling
make sure that the remaining
distance to the ceiling is not greater
or less than appliance height H.

of the chimney extension.
Protective film
The casing is covered with a protective
film to prevent scratching during
transport.
^ Peel off the film before installing the
casing parts.
^ After removing the screws from the
chimney, slide the lever between the
chimney and the chimney extension
and gently apply pressure to ease
the chimney from its hooks.

Air extraction
,WARNING
Danger of toxic fumes.
Gas cooking appliances release
carbon monoxide that can be
harmful or fatal if inhaled.
The exhaust gases extracted by
the hood should be vented
outside of the building only.
Do not terminate the exhaust
ducts in attics, garages,
crawlspaces, etc.
To reduce the risk of fire, only use
metal ductwork.
Please read and follow the
"IMPORTANT SAFETY
INSTRUCTIONS" to reduce the risk of
personal injury. Follow all local building
codes when installing the hood.
Exhaust ducting and connections
– The ducting should be as short and
straight as possible, and the number
of sharp bends should be minimized.
– For most efficient air extraction, the
diameter of the ductwork should not
be less than 6" (150 mm). Use of flat
ducts also reduces the air extraction
efficiency.
– Noise levels of the hood will increase
if flat ducts or round ducts of less
than 6" (150 mm) in diameter are
used.
– Use smooth or flexible pipes made
from approved non-flammable
materials for exhaust ducting.
– Where the ductwork is horizontal, it
must slope away from the hood at
least 1/8" per foot (1 cm per meter) to
prevent condensation dripping into
the appliance.
– If the exhaust is ducted through an
outside wall, a Miele Telescopic Wall
Vent can be used.
35
Air extraction
Condensate trap
optional accessory
If the exhaust is ducted into an inactive
flue, the air must be expelled parallel to
the flow direction of the flue.
Never connect an exhaust hood to
an active chimney, dryer vent, vent
flue, or room venting ductwork.
Seek professional advice before
connecting an exhaust hood vent to
an existing, inactive chimney or vent
flue.
Important!
If the ductwork runs through rooms,
ceilings, garages, etc. where
temperature variations exist, it may
need to be insulated to reduce
condensation.
36
In some cases, a condensate trap may
also be required to collect and
evaporate any condensation which may
occur. This optional accessory is
available for ducts 5" (125 mm) and
5 7/8" (150 mm) in diameter.
When installing a condensate trap,
ensure that it is positioned vertically
and if possible directly above the
exhaust outlet. The arrow on the casing
shows the venting direction.
