o Never insert pointed objects into the motor’s protective grid.
o If you are using the appliance in recirculation mode, then be
sure to replace the carbon filters at the recommended interval
(see section on “Fitting the carbon filter”). A build up of grease
could cause a fire hazard.
o Never attempt to clean the area above the grease filter.
o IMPORTANT: You should regularly use a good quality
stainless steel cleaner to maintain the shine and finish on
the stainless steel areas of your cooker hood. This will
help to leave a silicone water-resistant film to protect the
stainless steel surfaces and keep them in good condition
for the life of the product.
The grease filter
o Your cooker hood includes grease filters which help to absorb
grease particles to protect your kitchen and furniture from
greasy residues.
o Your cooker hood includes two metal filters which can be
periodically washed depending on usage.
o These filters may become flammable if they become saturated
with greasy residue.
o To prevent this fire hazard, the metal filters should be cleaned
regularly. Depending on use, this should be done every two
months, using hot water and normal washing-up detergent.
o DO NOT WASH THE GREASE FILTER IN A DISHWASHER.
11
Maintenance
Removing and cleaning the metal filter
o First remove the grease filter by pulling down on the handle and
pulling it away from the cooker hood.
o Soak the metal filters in hot water and washing up liquid for
about an hour.
o Rinse them off thoroughly with hot water.

coupling, max. 40W. Replace the grease filter support grilles.
o IMPORTANT: Defective bulbs should be replaced immediately.
o If the lights still do not work, make sure that the bulbs are fitted
properly into their housings before you call for technical
assistance.
Fitting the carbon filters
If the appliance is going to be used in recirculation mode then it is
necessary to a fit a carbon filter. This will help to absorb unpleasant
odours caused by cooking.
IMPORTANT: BEFORE ATTEMPTING TO FIT OR
REMOVE THE CARBON FILTERS, YOU MUST
ENSURE THAT YOU HAVE DISCONNECTED THE
COOKER HOOD FROM YOUR MAINS SUPPLY.
o You will find that one filter will attach over the front of the fan
motor. The active carbon filter must be replaced at least every
four months depending on usage to allow normal operation when
in recirculation mode.
1) Remove the metal filters by pulling down the
handle and pulling them away from the cooker
hood. This will allow you access to the motor.
13
2) Hook the carbon filter over the
pins that are located at the end of
the motor.
3) Turn the carbon filter clockwise until you feel it latch
onto the motor’s sides.
4) Replace the grease filters.
o When replacing the carbon filter, follow the steps outlined above
and turn the carbon filter anti-clockwise to unlatch it from the
motor.
Installation
IMPORTANT: Before installation read all the
instructions and make sure that the voltage (V)
and the frequency (Hz) indicated on the rating
plate are exactly the same as the voltage and
frequency in your home. The rating plate can be
found behind the grease filters.
The manufacturer declines all responsibility in the event of the installer
failing to observe all the accident prevention regulations in force,
which are necessary for normal use and the regular operation of the
electric system.
14
Electrical connection
YOUR COOKER HOOD IS INTENDED FOR FITTED AND
PERMANENT INSTALLATION.

spur outlet OR connected using a 13 AMP plug with a 3
AMP fuse fitted.
We recommend that the appliance is connected by a qualified
electrician, who is a member of the N.I.C.E.I.C. and who will comply
with the I.E.E. and local regulations. The wires in the mains lead are
coloured in accordance with the following UK code:
Blue = Neutral
Brown = Live
You will only find two wires in the main’s lead (blue and
brown) which means neither must be connected to the earth
terminal.
o As the colours of the wires in the appliance’s mains lead may not
correspond with the coloured markings identifying the terminals
in your spur box, please proceed as follows:
o The blue wire must be connected to the
terminal marked “N” (neutral), or coloured
black.
o The brown wire must be connected to the
terminal marked “L” (live), or coloured red.
Before beginning installation
o Check that the product purchased is of a suitable size for the
chosen installation area. In addition check whether there is an
electrical socket available that will be accessible once the hood is
mounted. If the product is going to be used in extraction mode,
15
then there should also be space to connect a ducting hose to the
outside.
o Carry out all necessary masonry work prior to the fitting of the
cooker hood.
o Ensure that all electrical connections are carried out by a suitably
qualified person.
o Before commencing installation of the cooker hood the grease
filters should be removed.
o Check inside the product and ensure that there is no transit
packaging or any other materials, such as packets of screws,
guarantees etc. These should be removed and kept for future
use.
o If possible, disconnect and move freestanding or slot-in cookers
from their position, to provide easier access to the rear wall and
ceiling. If this is not possible, then a thick, protective covering
should be placed over the worktop, hob top or cooker. This will
help to protect these surfaces from damage and debris.
o Select a flat surface for assembling the cooker hood. Cover that
surface with a protective covering and place all cooker hood
parts and fittings on it.
o Do not tile, grout or silicone this appliance to the wall or
cabinetry.
Installing your cooker hood
IMPORTANT: YOU WILL HAVE TO DECIDE BEFORE
INSTALLING YOUR COOKER HOOD WHETHER TO USE
IT IN EXTRACTION MODE OR RECIRCULATION
MODE. PLEASE TURN TO PAGE 21 NOW TO
UNDERSTAND THE DIFFERENCES BETWEEN THESE
TWO MODES.
o We recommend that at two people install this hood.
o The cooker hood can be fitted to the wall or to the underside of a
kitchen cabinet.
o It must be positioned at least 700 mm above the hob
underneath it. You cannot fit this product by securing it between
two cupboards.
16
IMPORTANT: YOUR COOKER HOOD SHOULD BE CONNECTED
TO YOUR MAINS SUPPLY AFTER THE REST OF THE
INSTALLATION PROCESS HAS BEEN COMPLETED.
Wall installation
NOTE: All the screws mentioned in this section come with your
cooker hood.
1) Position the hood against the wall and mark the positions of 4
holes of 8 mm diameter on a suitable place and according to the
centre distance of the hole on the back of the cooker hood.
2) Drill these holes into the wall. If you intend to use your cooker
hood as an extraction fan, you will need to fit a ducting kit
through this that will connect to your appliance.
3) Insert the rawlplugs into the holes and then insert the screws
part way, so that the screws stick out by 10 mm.
4) Hang the hood up on the screws.
5) Tighten the screws the rest of the way in.
6) For the extraction function, connect the exhaust outlet pipe to
the collar strip. Find the screw holes on the top of the cooker
hood. Tighten the bolts from inside the hood.
17
Installation into the underside of a kitchen cabinet
1) Drill holes of 4 mm diameter on the bottom of the cupboard you
wish to hang the hood from in accordance with the diagram
below:
2) Put the one way valve on the cooker hood and then install the
hood on the bottom of the cupboard. Fasten the hood securely in
place by tightening the screws.
3) Install the spacer on the bottom of the hood in order to close the
gap between the hood back and the cupboard.
18
Connecting to external ducting
o Connect the coupling to the top of the cooker hood, using two of
the smaller screws provided.
o Connect a 125 mm ducting hose to a discharge outlet that is
suitable for cooking vapours.
o The discharge outlet should have a cross section of at least 150
cm² (please note that the ducting hose is not supplied with the
appliance but one can be obtained from the Spares Department).
o The maximum distance between the coupling and your discharge
outlet should be 3 metres, with one 90 degree bend. For each
additional 90 degree bend, the maximum distance is reduced by
a further metre.
o Before fixing the cooker hood into the kitchen unit, you should
connect the other end of the ducting hose to the coupling in the
top of the cooker hood.
Completing the installation
If you are setting the appliance to recirculation mode, then you should
now fit the two carbon filters. See the “Fitting the carbon filter”
section.
The electrical connection must correspond to the electrical requirement
noted on the rating plate, which is placed inside the cooker hood. The
appliance should now be connected to the electrical supply.
Refit the metal filter and then switch on the mains supply
to the appliance. Check that the appliance is operating
correctly by selecting each speed and switching the light
bulb on and off.
19
Extraction mode or recirculation mode?
IMPORTANT: YOU WILL HAVE TO DECIDE BEFORE
INSTALLING YOUR COOKER HOOD WHETHER TO USE
IT IN EXTRACTION MODE OR RECIRCULATION
MODE.
What is the difference between extraction and recirculation
modes?
In extraction mode, the stale air will be taken via the grease filter and
out of the room via external ducting.
In recirculation mode stale air is taken via the grease filter, and passed
through a charcoal filter for purification. The air then re-enters the
kitchen via an opening in the hood.
For optimum performance, we recommend that the cooker hood is
used in extraction mode and connected to external ducting.
Unfortunately if you live in a flat or the hood is too far from an outside
wall, this may not be possible. The only alternative is to recirculate the
air.
Do I need a charcoal filter?
All cooker hoods have a grease filter but if you are using your cooker
hood in recirculation mode, then a charcoal filter must be fitted in
addition to the grease filters.
20
Troubleshooting
IMPORTANT: If your cooker hood appears not to be operating
properly, before contacting the Customer Care Department,
please refer to the checklist below.
My cooker hood will not start.
