Caring for the environment
Disposal of the packing material
Disposal of your old appliance
The packaging is designed to protect
the appliance from damage during
transportation. The packaging materials
used are selected from materials which
are environmentally friendly for
disposal, and should be recycled.
Electrical and electronic appliances
often contain valuable materials. They
also contain materials which, if handled
or disposed of incorrectly, could be
potentially hazardous to human health
and to the environment. They are,
however, essential for the correct
functioning of your appliance. Please
do not therefore dispose of it with your
Recycling packaging reduces the use
of raw materials in the manufacturing
process and also reduces the amount
of waste in landfill sites.
Packaging e.g. cling film, polystyrene
and plastic wrappings must be kept out
of the reach of babies and young
children. Danger of suffocation!

Warning and Safety instructions
Technical safety
~ Before installation, check the cooker
hood for visible signs of damage.
Under no circumstances should you
use a damaged appliance. A damaged
appliance is dangerous.
~ Before connecting the appliance to
the mains supply, make sure that the
voltage and frequency details given on
the data plate correspond with the
on-site electricity supply, otherwise the
appliance could be damaged. Consult
a qualified electrician if in any doubt.
~ The electrical safety of this
appliance can only be guaranteed
when continuity is complete between
the appliance and an effective earthing
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).
~ 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.
~ 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.
5
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 appliance must not be used in
a non-stationary location (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 guarantee.
~ Great care should be taken when
using the cooker hood 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 hobs, cookers 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.
6
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 cooker
hood 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 cooker hood 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 (Corgi registered
in the UK) must be sought.
If the hood is being operated in
recirculation mode, the above
restrictions do not apply.
7
Warning and Safety instructions
Correct use
~ Never use an open flame beneath
the cooker hood. To avoid the danger
of fire, do not flambé or grill over an
open flame.
When switched on, the cooker hood
could draw flames into the filter. Fat
particles drawn into the cooker hood
present a fire hazard.
~ When using the cooker hood over a
gas hob, 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 cooker hood can become
damaged when exposed to excessive
heat.
~ Always switch the cooker hood on
when a cooking zone is in use,
otherwise condensation may collect in
the hood, which could cause corrosion.
~ 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 cooker hood on fire.
~ Do not use the cooker hood 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".
~ The cooker hood can get very hot
during cooking due to heat rising from
the hob.
Do not touch the housing or the grease
filters until the cooker hood 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.
Correct installation
~ Refer to the cooker or hob
manufacturer's instructions as to
whether a cooker hood may be
operated above the cooker/hob.
~ The minimum safety distances
between the top of the cooker or hob
and the bottom of the cooker hood
given in the "Appliance dimensions"
section of this booklet must be
maintained, unless the hob
manufacturer states that a greater
safety distance is required.
If more than one cooking appliance is
fitted beneath the cooker hood, and
they have different minimum safety
distances to the cooker hood, select
the greater distance.
8
Warning and Safety instructions
~ Safety regulations prohibit the fitting
of a cooker hood over solid fuel stoves.
~ All ducting, pipework and fittings
must be of non-flammable material.
These can be obtained from the Miele
Spare Parts department 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 guarantee, and Miele
cannot accept liability.
The manufacturer cannot be held
liable for damage caused by
non-compliance with these Warning
and Safety instructions.

11
Modes of operation
The cooker hood works with
. . . 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 cooker
hood is switched off.
When the cooker hood is switched on,
the non-return flap opens for the
cooking vapours to be blown directly
outside.
. . . air recirculation:
(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 cooker
hood extension piece.
Charcoal filters are available to order
through your Dealer / Chartered Agent
or the Miele Spare Parts Department.
(See back cover for contact details and
"Technical Data" for model number).
Before using the cooker hood 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
cooker hood by means of a control
cable, and is operated by the controls
on the cooker hood.

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 Miele E-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 cooker hood.
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.
21
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

person should have sufficient space
to work comfortably at the hob, and
also be able to reach the hood
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
cooker hood.

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 cooker hood 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 cooker hood at the same time as
another heating appliance which
relies on air from the same room.
The cooker hood 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 the extraction ducting.
– When using an external motor, make
sure that the exhaust ducting is
sufficiently rigid. The external motor
can cause an underpressure which
could result in the exhaust ducting
distorting.
To achieve the greatest possible air
extraction with the lowest noise level,
please note the following:
– To ensure efficient air extraction, the
diameter of the exhaust ducting
should not be less than 150 mm.
– If flat ducting is being used, the
cross-sectional area must not be
smaller than the cross-sectional area
of the exhaust connection.
– 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 cooker hood.
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 accessory)
– 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.
Cooker hoods designed for use with an
external motor (...EXT models) have an
integrated condensate trap.
34
Connection for air extraction
Silencer
...with air extraction:
(optional accessory)
The silencer not only reduces noise
from the fan, but also sounds from
outside (e.g. traffic noise).
For this reason the silencer must be
positioned as close as possible to where
the ducting leaves the building a.
...air extraction with external motor:
To achieve even further reductions in
noise levels, a special silencer can be
fitted in the ducting system...
To minimise noise from the motor in
the kitchen, the silencer should be
positioned in front of the external
motor b if possible, or if the ducting is
long, then in the ducting above the
cooker hood itself c.
In the case of an external motor placed
inside the house, fitting a silencer
behind the external motor d reduces
the noise of the motor outside the
house.
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
(BS 7671 in the UK).
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 or a double
pole fused spur connection unit which
complies with national and local safety
regulations and the On-Off switch
should be easily accessible after the
appliance has been built in.
When switched off there must be an
all-pole contact gap of 3 mm in the
switch (including switch, fuses and
relays according to EN 60335).
36
If the switch is not accessible after
installation (depending on country), an
additional means of disconnection must
be provided for all poles.
For extra safety it is advisable to protect
the appliance with a suitable residual
current device (RCD). Contact a
qualified electrician for advice.
Important

The control module can be used to
switch on the cooker hood lighting and
also to dim it, via a pushbutton light
switch in the house.
Installation
The potential free contact on the
DSM 400 a can, for example, be used
in a cooker hood with an external motor
...EXT, which is connected to a central
ducting system.
The contact can then be used to
operate an electrically driven non-return
flap b which is connected to the
central extraction unit c.
The tower needs to be removed before
the control module can be fitted to the
fan unit.
The electrical connection of
