OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS
Recycling Mode (Filtered)
The cooker hood is supplied specified for use in
the recycling mode with the charcoal filter fitted.
In the recycling mode the contaminated air
enters the cooker hood through the grease
filters and the charcoal filters to be purified and
out into the kitchen through the grilles in
chimney stack.
Extraction Mode (Ducting)
In the extraction mode the contaminated air
enters the cooker hood and passes through the
grease filters and out through the ducting into
the atmosphere.
To obtain the best performance when cooking it
is advisable to switch the cooker hood on for a
few minutes before you start cooking and leave
it running for about 15 minutes after finishing.
When used in the extraction mode the
charcoal filters are not required.
Never do flambé cooking under this
cooker hood.
Never leave frying pans unattended
during use as overheated fats and oils
can catch fire.
Do not leave naked flames under the
cooker hood.
Ensure heating areas on your hob are
covered with pots and pans when
using the hob and cooker hood
simultaneously.
Page 5
CLEANING AND MAINTENANCE
Before carrying out any cleaning or
maintenance isolate the cooker hood
from the mains supply.
The cooker hood must be kept clean,
as a build up of fat or grease can be a
fire hazard.
External Cleaning
Wipe over the cooker hood frequently with a
cloth wrung out in warm soapy water using a
mild detergent.
Never use scouring pads or abrasive
cleaners.
Never use excessive amounts of water
when cleaning particularly around the
control panel.
Metal Grease Filters
The grease filters absorb grease and dust
during cooking to help keep the cooker hood
clean inside.
Cleaning
The filters must be washed once every
month, using a normal household
detergent; their compact dimension also
enables them to be washed in a
dishwasher. Allow to dry completely before
replacing.
Removing and replacing the filters
Remove the filters one at a time, press
against the metal actuator to release the
spring catch as illustrated. When
replacing, ensure that the handles face
outwards.
Charcoal Filter
In the recirculation mode the charcoal filter
absorbs smells and unwanted odours.
The charcoal filter cannot be cleaned or
regenerated, and must be replaced
approximately every 4 months, or more
frequently if the hood is subjected to heavy
usage.
Replacing the charcoal filter
First remove the metal grease filters.
Remove the saturated charcoal filter by
releasing the fixing hooks as illustrated.
Page 6
CLEANING AND MAINTENANCE
Position the new charcoal filter in the
position marked and while holding the
filter replace the fixing hooks as
illustrated.
This appliance can be a possible fire
hazard if the grease and charcoal filters
are not cleaned and replaced as
recommended.
Changing the Spot Lamps
Remove the two screws fixing the lighting
support.
Remove the spot lamp from the holder by
pulling the lamp downwards.
Replace the spot lamp by inserting the
two pins at the base of the lamp into the
holes in holder and pushing into position.
Replace the lighting support, ensuring it is
located correctly and fix back into position
using the two screws.
If one of the spot lamps has failed to function
check that the lamp is fully seated into the lamp
holder. If lamp failure has occurred then it
should be replaced with a 12V 20W M262
halogen spot lamp.
Replacement filters and lamps can be
obtained from your local Service Force
Centre.

INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS
Clearance Heights
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.
A minimum clearance height of 650mm
(25½ins) is required when installed above a
built-in electric hob, or 700mm (27½ins) when
installed above a built-in gas hob.
A: Built-in Electric Hob:
650mm minimum clearance
B: Built-in Gas Hob:

C: Slot-in Electric Cooker: 685mm minimum clearance
D: Slot in Gas Cooker:
A minimum clearance height of 685mm (27ins)
is required when installing above a slot-in
electric cooker, or 787mm (30½ins) when
installed above a slot-in 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
(17¾ins), a gap of 50mm (2ins) must be
maintained either side of the hob.
This cooker hood must not be installed
above a cooking appliance with a high
level grill.
The hood can be installed above these heights
but for optimum performance it should be
installed at the distances quoted for the
appropriate heat source.
This appliance can be used in either extraction
mode (ducting) or recycling mode (filtering).
The hood is supplied suitable for recirculation
with the charcoal filters fitted.
When used in the extraction mode (ducting) the
charcoal filters are not required and must be
removed and destroyed.

INSTALLING THE COOKER HOOD
Extraction (Ducted)
The cooker hood is more effective when
installed in the extraction mode (ducted to the
outside).
Venting kits may be purchased through your
retailer or DIY store or using the enclosed form,
and must be evacuated through an outside vent
of ∅125 (5ins) or ∅150mm (6ins).
The ducting used must be manufactured from
fire retardent material conforming to the
relevant British Standard or DIN 4102-B1.
When the cooker hood is ducted to the
outside the charcoal filter must be removed.
Fitting the Ducting
•
•
•
•
•
•
Fit the ∅150mm (6ins) ducting to the
spigot on top of the hood body as
illustrated.
When using ∅125mm (5ins) ducting fit
item 9 and 10 on to the spigot on the top
of the hood body as illustrated.
For the best performance use the shortest
possible run of ducting and we
recommend the use of rigid pipe in
preference to flexible hose as this will
improve the flow of air while reducing
turbulence, which causes causes noise
and a loss of performance.
If the room where the cooker hood is to be
used contains a fuel burning appliance
such as a central heating boiler, then its
flue must be be of the room sealed or
balanced flue type.
If other types of flue or appliances are
fitted ensure that there is an adequate
supply of air to the room.
The cooker ducting when fitted in the
evacuation mode must never be
connected to central heating flues,
radiators or water heaters.
Recirculation Mode
The cooker hood is supplied specified for use in
the recirculation mode, with the charcoal filter
fitted.
In the recirculation mode contaminated air is
passed through the charcoal filter to be purified
and recirculated into the kitchen through the grille
outlets on either side of the chimney.
