Safety warnings
For the user
• The cooker hood is designed to
extract unpleasant odours from the
kitchen, it will not extract steam.
• Always cover lighted elements, to
prevent excess heat from damaging
the appliance. In the case of oil, gas
and coal fired cookers it is essential
to avoid open flames.
• Also, when frying, keep the deep
frying pan on the cooker top/cooker
under careful control.
• The hot oil in the frying pan might
ignite due to overheating.
• The risk of self-ignition increases
when the oil being used is dirty.
• It is extremely important to note that
overheating can cause a fire.
• Never carry out any flambé cooking
under the hood.

For the installer
• When used as an extractor unit, the
hood must be fitted with a hose
having preferably the same diameter
as the outlet hole.
Attention: The hose is not supplied
and must be purchased separately.
• When installing the hood, make sur
e
sure
you observe the following minimum
distance fr
om the top edge of the
from
cooking hob/ring surfaces:
electric cookers
500 mm
gas cookers
650 mm
If the instructions for installation for
the gas hob specify a greater
distance, this must be adhered to.
• The national Standard on fuelburning systems specifies a maximum depression of 0.04 mbar in
such rooms.
• The air outlet must not be connected
to chimney flues or combustion gas
ducts. The air outlet must under no
circumstances be connected to
ventilation ducts for rooms in which
fuel-burning appliances are installed.
• The air outlet installation must comply
with the regulations laid down by the
relevant local authorities.
• When the unit is used in extraction
mode, a sufficiently large ventilation
hole must be provided, with
dimensions that are approximately
the same as the outlet hole.
• National and regional building
regulations impose a number of
restrictions on using hoods and fuelburning appliances connected to a
chimney, such as coal or oil roomheaters and gas fires, in the same
room.
• Hoods can only be used safely with
appliances connected to a chimney if
the room and/or flat (air/environment
combination) is ventilated from
outside using a suitable ventilation
hole approximately 500-600 cm2
large to avoid the possibility of a
depression being created during
operation of the hood.
• If you have any doubts, contact the
relevant controlling authority or
building inspector’s office.
• Since the rule for rooms with fuel
burning appliances is “outlet hole of
the same size as the ventilation hole”,
a hole of 500-600 cm2, which is to
say a larger hole, could reduce the
performance of the extractor hood.
• If the hood is used in its recirculation
mode, it will operate simply and safely
in the above conditions without the
need for any of the aforementioned
measures.
• When the hood is used in its
extraction mode, the following rules
must be followed to obtain optimal
operation:
- short and straight outlet hose
- keep bends in outlet hose to a
minimum
- never install the hoses with an
acute angle, they must always
follow a gentle curve.
- keep the hose as large as possible
(preferably the same diameter as
the outlet hole).
- the length should be no more than:
3 metres with one 90° bend
2 metres with two 90° bends
Bends of more than 90° will reduce
the efficiency of the hood and
reduce the airflow.
• Failure to observe these basic
instructions will drastically reduce the
performance and increase the noise
levels of the extractor hood.

GB
Unlike other charcoal filters, the
LONGLIFE charcoal filter can be
cleaned and reactivated.
With normal use the filter should be
cleaned every second month (when
using the hood 2,5 hours per day,on
avarage). The best way to clean the
filter is in the dishwasher. Use normal
detergent and choose the highest
temperature (65º C). Wash the filter
separately so that no food parts gets
stuck on the filter and later causes bad
odours. To reactivate the charcoal, the
filter should be dried in an oven for 10
minutes with a maximum temperature
of 100º C.
After approximately three years of use,
the charcoal filter should be replaced
with a new, as the odour reduction
capacity will be reduced.

The cooker hood comes with fixing plugs which are suitable for use with most
walls/ceilings. Nevertheless, you should ask a qualified technician to assess the
suitability of the materials in accordance with the type of wall/ceiling. The wall/
ceiling must be sufficiently sturdy so as to support the weight of the cooker hood.
Remove the perimeter air suction panels and the grease filters.
Before installing the product:
The perforated frame for the cooker hood is supplied prior to installation in parts.
The main parts making up the perforated frame are as follows:
• the upper perforated frame A (x1)
• the perforated frame extension brackets B (x4)
• the reinforcement brackets C (x3), of which:
2 are for use on the upper part C1 - 1 of which is pre-assembled
