Functional description
The ventilation hood works by air
extraction. The air is drawn in and
cleaned by the grease filter and
directed outside.
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.

or sponges which have been
previously used with abrasive
cleaning agents.
These will damage the surface.
Cleaning the casing
Never use abrasive cleaners,
scouring pads, steel wool or caustic
(oven) cleaners on the hood. They
will damage the surface.
The following instructions for cleaning
"Stainless steel" surfaces and "Stainless
steel colored controls" should be
followed in addition to the general
"Cleaning the casing" instructions.
^ The exterior surfaces and controls
can be cleaned with a mild solution
of warm water and liquid dish soap
applied with a soft sponge.
Stainless steel
^ Wipe dry using a soft cloth.
To help prevent resoiling, a conditioner
for stainless steel can also be used.
Apply sparingly with even pressure.
Only use a slightly damp sponge
when cleaning the controls. Water
could penetrate into the electronics
and cause damage.
^ Glass surfaces can be cleaned using
glass cleaner.
16
Stainless steel surfaces can be cleaned
using a non-abrasive stainless steel
cleaner.
Stainless steel colored controls
These controls may become discolored or damaged if not cleaned
regularly.
Do not use a stainless steel cleaner
on these controls.
Cleaning and care
Grease filter
Removing the grease filter
The reusable metal grease filter
removes solid particles from the vented
kitchen air (grease, dust, etc).
The grease filter should be cleaned
every 3 - 4 weeks, when the grease
filter indicator lights, or when they are
visibly dirty, whichever comes first.
,A dirty filter is a fire hazard.
^ To remove the grease filter pull the
locking clip forward. Lower the filter
45° unhook it at the rear and take it
out. Support the grease filter so that it
does not fall onto the cooktop.
17
Cleaning and care
Cleaning the grease filter
^ By hand: use a scrub brush with a
solution of warm water and mild
detergent.
Do not use the pure detergent,
aggressive all purpose cleaners,
oven sprays, abrasive cleaning
agents or limescale removers. They
could destroy the filter.
^ In a dishwasher: place the filter
vertically in the lower basket, making
sure that the spray arm is not
blocked.
Use a hot temperature program,
e.g. "Heavy Soil" or "Pots and pans".
Use the recommended amount of
dishwasher detergent. Overuse could
destroy the filter.
Depending on the detergent,
cleaning the grease filter in a
dishwasher may cause permanent
discoloration of the filter surface.
Performance of the filter will not be
affected by this discoloration.
^ After cleaning, the filter can be
placed on a towel to air dry.
^ While the filter is removed, clean any
dirt or grease from the interior casing
to prevent the risk of fire.
^ When putting the grease filter back

Air extraction
,WARNING
Danger of toxic fumes.
Gas cooking appliances release
carbon monoxide that can be
harmful or fatal if inhaled.
To reduce the risk of fire and to
properly exhaust air, the exhaust
gases extracted by the hood
should be vented outside of the
building only.
Do not vent exhaust air into
spaces within walls or ceilings or
in attics, crawl spaces, or garages
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
Use smooth or flexible pipwork made
from approved non-flammable
materials for exhaust ducting.
To achieve the most efficient air
extraction and quietest noise levels,
consider the following:
– The diameter of the ductwork should
not be less than 6" (150 mm).
– If flat ducting is used, the cross
section must not be smaller than the
cross section of the ventilation
exhaust.
– The ducting should be as short and
straight as possible.
– Use ductwork with a wide raduis.
– The exhaust duct must not be bent
or compressed.
– Make sure all connections are
secure.
– 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 Telescopic Wall Vent
can be used.

any condensation which may develop.
This optional accessory is available for
ducts 5" (125 mm) and 6" (150 mm) in
diameter.
– 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, flue,
or room venting ductwork. Seek
professional advice before
connecting an exhaust hood vent to
an existing, inactive chimney or vent
flue.
^ When installing a condensate trap,
ensure that it is positioned vertically
and if possible directly above the
exhaust outlet.
Important
If the ductwork runs through rooms,
ceilings, garages, etc. where
temperature variations exist, it may
need to be insulated to reduce
condensation.
