in diameter and the length should be nomore than:
3 metres with one 90 0 bend
2 metres with two 90 0 bends
Bends of more than 90 0 will reduce the
efficiency of the hood and reduce the airflow.
Clearance Height
The cooker hood is designed to be fitted over
a cooking appliance at the clearance heights
stated, providing the maximum output of the
appliance beneath does not exceed the
maximums quoted in the Technical Specifications.
If the output of the appliance below the
cooker hood exceeds the maximum outputs
quoted, please refer to the cooker
manufacturer’s installation instructions.
11
Clearance Height
A minimum clearance height of 650mm
(25 1/2”) is required when installed above a
built-in electric hob, or 700mm (27 1/2”) when
installed above a built-in gas hob.
A minimum clearance height of 685mm (27”)
is required when installed above a slot-in
electric oven, or 787mm (30 1/2”) when
installed above a slot-in gas oven.
Hob
A: Built-in Electric Hob:
B: Built-in Gas hob:
C: Slot-in Electric Cooker:
D: Slot-in Gas Cooker:
When installed between adjoining wall
cabinets, the wall cabinets must not overhang
the hob and the distance between the
underside of the cabinet and the worktop must
be 450mm. If the height of the wall cabinet is
less than 450mm, a gap of 50mm must be
maintained either side of the hob.
This cooker hood must not be installed
above a cooking appliance with a high
level grill.
Unpacking
Before unpacking the cooker hood position the
carton with the arrows pointing upwards as
illustrated on the carton.
Positioning
This cooker hood is designed to be fitted into
a cabinet which should have a minimum
depth 28 cm and width 60 cm.
Venting
The hood is more effective when used in the
extraction setting (ducted to the outside).
Venting kits maybe purchased through
your retailer or DIY store, and must be ducted
to an outside vent of 100mm (4”) minimum.
The ducting used must be manufactured
from fire retardant material which should
conform to the relevant British Standard
or DIN4102-B1.
When the hood is ducted externally the
charcoal filter must be removed and the slider

Fitting the Wall Cabinet
If it is necessary to fix the kitchen cabinet to a
hollow construction plaster or partition board
structure then it must be sufficiently reinforced
to be strong enough to support the weight of
the cooker hood.
Wall Cabinet Preparation

ensuring the cooker hood is supported. Open
the visor and remove the two metal grease
filter cassettes (see maintenance and cleaning
section).
Mark the position for the cut-out for the cooker
hood on the underside of the kitchen cabinet.
The cut-out should measure, lenght 503 mm by
depth 162 mm.
Mark the position for the cut-out for the
ducting on the top of the kitchen cabinet
ensuring that the centre of the hole aligns
with the centre of the ducting spigot.
A pad saw or similar cutter will be required to
cut the rectangular hole for the cooker hood
and the circular hole for the ducting spigot.
Before inserting the cooker hood inside the
cabinet ensure a hole has been provided to
route the mains cable.
Securing the cooker hood to the wall
Kcabinet
1.
Insert the upper casing of the cooker hood
through the hole from the underside of the
cabinet ensuring that the butterfly bracket
screws have been loosened sufficiently to
allow the wings to be folded back.
2.
Tighten the butterfly bracket screws, by
rotating the screws clockwise.
3.
If further alignment of the cooker hood is
required the lower section of the casing
can be adjusted horizontally, backwards
and forwards.
13
KTo adjust the lower casing

with the wall cabinet above.
Care should be taken when carrying out
the above operation not to loosen the
screws too far, and to ensure that the
casing is supported at all times.
Fitting the Control Panel
The control panel support should be located
on the right hand side in the channel on the
underside of the hood.
Using the screws provided secure the control
box support into the pre-drilled hole.
Clearance Height
The cooker hood can be concealed behind a
decor panel by removing the factory fitted front
strip and fitting a length of lighting pelmet.
KTo remove the front strip
1.
Open the visor.
