Functional description
The hood offers two modes of
operation:
Air extraction
Recirculation mode
The air is drawn in and cleaned by the
grease filters and directed outside.
Air is drawn through the grease filters
and an active charcoal filter. The
filtered air is then recirculated back into
the kitchen through a vent at the top of
the hood’s chimney.
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.
The recirculation mode requires an
install kit and charcoal filter which are
optional accessories.
Before using the hood in
recirculation mode, ensure that the
active charcoal filter is in place, see
"Cleaning and care".

supply by either removing the fuse,
unplugging it from the outlet, or
manually "tripping" the circuit
breaker.
Cleaning the casing
Warning: Never use abrasive
cleaners, scouring pads, steel wool
or caustic (oven) cleaners on the
hood. They will damage the surface.
^ All external surfaces and controls can
be cleaned with warm water and
liquid dish soap applied with a soft
sponge.
Stainless steel
Stainless steel surfaces can be cleaned
using a non-abrasive stainless steel
cleaner.
To help prevent resoiling, a conditioner
for stainless steel can be applied.
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.
^ Wipe dry using a soft cloth.
Do not use too much water when
cleaning the controls. Water could
penetrate the electronics and cause
damage.
^ Glass surfaces can be cleaned using
a glass cleaner.
Avoid:
– cleaning agents containing soda,
acids or chlorides,
– abrasive cleaning agents
e.g. powder or cream cleansers,
– abrasive sponges, e.g. pot scourers
or sponges which have been
previously used with abrasive
cleaning agents,
– limescale removers.
These will damage the surface.
17
Cleaning and Care
Grease filters
The reusable metal grease filters
remove solid particles from the vented
kitchen air (grease, dust, etc).
The grease filters should be cleaned
every 3 - 4 weeks or when the grease
filter indicator lights.
A dirty filter is a fire hazard.
^ In a dishwasher: place the filters
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 filters 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 filters can be
placed on a towel to air dry.
^ While the filters are removed, clean
any dirt or grease from the filter
casing to prevent the risk of fire.
When putting the grease filters back
make sure that the locking clips are
visibly facing the cooking surface.
^ To remove the grease filters pull the
locking clips 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.
Cleaning the grease filters
^ 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 or limescale removers.
They could destroy the filters.
18
If the filters are incorrectly installed,
insert a small screwdriver into the slit
along its edge to disengage it from the
casing.
^ After returning the grease filters,
press and hold the grease filter
button for 3 seconds to reset the
timer. The indicator light will go out.
^ If the grease filters are cleaned
before the grease filter timer has
reached its maximum, press the
grease filter button for 6 seconds to
reset the counter to zero.
Cleaning and Care
Active charcoal filter
In recirculation mode an active
charcoal filter must be used in addition
to the grease filters. It is designed to
absorb cooking odors.
The active charcoal filter will be
replaced in the canopy above the
grease filters.
Replacement active charcoal filters
can be ordered from Miele.
^ Remove the grease filters to access
the charcoal filter. See "Cleaning and
Care - Grease filters".
^ Insert the charcoal filter.
Before using:
^ Program the charcoal filter timer, see
"Operation / Reprogramming the
charcoal filter timer".
Replace the active charcoal filter when
the charcoal filter indicator lights, at
least every 6 months or when they no
longer absorb odors efficiently.
^ After replacing the charcoal filter,
press and hold the charcoal filter
button for about 3 seconds to reset
the charcoal filter timer.
The indicator light will go out.
^ If the charcoal filter is replaced
before the timer has reached its

should be pressed for 6 seconds to
reset the counter to zero.
19
Cleaning and Care
Changing the light bulb
Before changing the light bulbs,
disconnect the hood from the power
supply by either removing the fuse,
unplugging it, or manually "tripping"
the circuit breaker.
When in use halogen bulbs become
extremely hot, use caution. Do not
attempt to change the bulbs until
they have had sufficient time to cool.
Do not touch the bulb surface.
Fingerprints or body oils deposited
on the bulb will decrease its life.
Follow the bulb manufacturer’s
instructions.
20
^ To change the halogen bulb first
remove the lamp cover, a.
^ Pull the bulb, b, out of its socket and
replace with a new one.
^ Now return the lamp cover, a.

result in a risk of electric shock.
If there is any doubt, have the electrical
system of the house checked by a
qualified electrician. The manufacturer
cannot be held responsible for
damages caused by the lack, or
inadequacy, of an effective grounding
system.
Do not use an extension cord. If the
power supply cord is too short, have a
qualified electrician install an outlet
near the appliance.
Important
The hood comes equipped with a 4 ft
(1.2 m) power cord with a NEMA 1-15
molded plug for connection to a
120 VAC, 60 Hz, 15 A power outlet.

Appliance dimensions
Do not install this exhaust hood over
cooktops burning solid fuel.
Provided a larger distance is not
given by the manufacturer of the
cooktop, follow the minimum safety
distances between a cooktop and
the bottom of the hood:
- 22" (550 mm) above electric
cooktops,
- 30" (762 mm) above gas cooktops,
- 26" (650 mm) above an open
electric grill or an open electric
boiler/fryer.
If local building codes require a
greater safety distance, follow their
requirement.
If there is more than one appliance
beneath the hood and they have
different minimum safety distances
always select the greater distance.
See "Important Safety Instructions"
for further information.
Distance between cooktop and
hood (S)
The installation procedure differs
depending on the model and venting
method.
Before beginning the installation:
^ Read all instructions.
^ Determine height (S), regarding the
user’s body height, i.e. a comfortable
height for the user.
However, the greater the distance,
the less effectively cooking odors are
drawn in.
^ If the hood is fitted flush to the
ceiling, regard the possible unit
height when selecting the installation
height.

Installation instructions
Dismantling
^ See the enclosed installation
instruction sheet.
If the hood needs to be disassembled,
follow the instructions on the installation
sheet in the reverse order.
^ Please read the "Important Safety
Instructions" and Installation
instructions before installing this
hood.
A lever is enclosed for easier removal
of the chimney extension.
Protective film
The casing is covered with a protective
film to prevent scratching during
transport.
^ Peel off the film before installing the
casing parts.
^ After removing the screws from the
chimney, slide the lever between the
chimney and the chimney extension
and gently apply pressure to ease
the chimney from its hooks.

Air extraction
,WARNING
Danger of toxic fumes.
Gas cooking appliances release
carbon monoxide that can be
harmful or fatal if inhaled.
The exhaust gases extracted by
the hood should be vented
outside of the building only.
Do not terminate the exhaust
ducts in attics, garages,
crawlspaces, etc.
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
– The ducting should be as short and
straight as possible, and the number
of sharp bends should be minimized.
– For most efficient air extraction, the
diameter of the ductwork should not
be less than 6" (150 mm). Use of flat
ducts also reduces the air extraction
efficiency.
– Noise levels of the hood will increase
if flat ducts or round ducts of less
than 6" (150 mm) in diameter are
used.
– Use smooth or flexible pipes made
from approved non-flammable
materials for exhaust ducting.
– 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 Miele Telescopic Wall
Vent can be used.
33
Air extraction
Condensate trap
optional accessory
– 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.
Important
If the ductwork runs through rooms,
ceilings, garages, etc. where
temperature variations exist, it may
need to be insulated to reduce
condensation.
34
In some cases, a condensate trap may
also be required to collect and
evaporate any condensate which may
occur. This optional accessory is
available for ducts 5" (125 mm) and
5 7/8" (150 mm) in diameter.
^ When installing a condensate trap,
ensure that it is positioned vertically
and if possible directly above the
exhaust outlet.
