Safety warnings – For the installer
When installing the cooker hood, make sure you adhere to
the minimum and maximum distances from the cooker hood
base to the hob surface (as per table on following page).
Exhaust flue installation: The following rules must be
strictly followed to obtain optimal air extraction.
•Keep exhaust flue short and straight
•Do not reduce the size or restrict exhaust flue.
•Keep bends in the exhaust flue to a minimum.
•When using flexible flue always install duct with helix pulled
taut to minimise pressure loss.
•Failure to observe these basic instructions will drastically
reduce the performance and increase the noise levels of
the cooker hood.
Exhaust air must not be discharged into a wall cavity, unless
the cavity is designed for that purpose.
The exhaust from the cooker hood must not be discharged
into any heating flue, which may carry combustion products
from other sources
NOTE: Some installations may require the telescopic
exhaust cover to be cut to length. Cut with sharp tin snips
or a fine-tooth hack saw blade, taking care not to distort or
dent the exhaust cover.
Never carry out flambé cooking under the canopy rangehood.
This canopy rangehood is not recommended for barbecues.
This canopy rangehood cannot be installed for external use.
Grease filters must be removed every four weeks
(maximum) for cleaning to reduce the risk of fire.
The exhaust from the canopy rangehood must not
be discharged into any heating flue, which may carry
combustion products from other sources. (Fig. 1)
Exhaust air must not be discharged into a wall cavity,
unless the cavity is designed for the purpose.
There must be adequate ventilation of the room when the
canopy rangehood is used at the same time as appliances
burning gas or other fuels.
Always cover lit gas burners with pots or pans when
canopy rangehood is in use.
Always switch off gas burners before you remove pots or pans.
Do not leave lit gas burners exposed due to the risk of fire.

1.Using a spirit level mark a vertical centre line on the wall
where the hood is to be positioned, and a horizontal line
at the hood base position (refer diagram bottom left).
NOTE: The height of the underside of the hood body must
be a minimum of 600mm above an electric cooktop &
650mm above a gas cook top and a maximum height of
800mm (refer to table below).
3. Install flue cover wall mounting brackets with suitable
fixings. Install suitable screws for rangehood mounting
points (to support a total weight of 30kg) to the wall as
marked (Fig. B).

Depending on the preferred installation/ducting mode, follow
step 6a or 6b below.
6a.Recirculating mode (Fig. D). Using the centre line,
secure the recirculating T-piece to the wall with suitable
screws/fixings (optional kit AR610RK). Install flexible pipe
between T-piece and the exhaust transition duct.
Use cable ties or suitable duct tape to secure flexible
pipe to T-piece and transition duct (Fig. F).
NOTE: When installed in recirculating mode, it is
recommended to use a carbon filter (included in
recirculation kit AR610RK) to prevent odours being
emitted back into the room.
6b.Ducted mode (Fig E.) The canopy rangehood has been
supplied with flexible flue pipe and duct transition piece,
alternatively a 150mm diameter non-combustible flue
pipe can be used. Continue the centre line to the ceiling.
Fit preferred flue pipe to the fan transition duct (Fig. F).
Use cable ties or suitable duct tape to secure flexible
pipe to the transition duct.
NOTE: For ducted mode, we recommend extending
flue pipe through the roof to external “china hat” to vent
exhaust externally. We do not recommend venting into
ceiling cavity.
NOTE: To ensure optimum performance of the
rangehood, the use of rigid ducting is recommended.
The use of bends should be avoided. Rigid flexible
ducting is suitable, although loose flexible ducting is
unacceptable. All ducting must be fire retardant.

Check that the installation complies with the standards
of local building, gas and electrical authorities. Before
connecting to the mains supply ensure that the mains
voltage corresponds to the voltage on the rating plate
inside the rangehood.

Installation of telescopic flue covers
Separate the inner and outer flue covers, and carefully
remove the protective coating from both. Carefully
reassemble the upper and lower flue covers sections by
sliding the inner into the outer flue cover. Carefully lower
the assembled upper and lower flue covers onto the top
of the rangehood body, and insert the flue cover into the
rangehood body approximately 5mm. Fix upper flue cover
to the wall mounting bracket with screws supplied. Ensure
that the upper section is extended.
Care must be taken to ensure the screws are not cross
threaded when attaching the upper flue cover.
If installed in recirculating mode, insert the optional carbon
filter (included in recirculation kit AR610RK).
To complete the rangehood installation, insert the three
filters to the underside of the hood body. Place back edge
of filter into position and push up front edge so that the filter
clips into place.
Your Electrolux rangehood is now ready to use.

Using the rangehood
Touch control operation
Stainless Steel Surface
Clean stainless steel surfaces using non-abrasive cleaning
products that are specifically for use on stainless steel.
To ensure best results also use an even pressure and follow
the grain of the stainless steel. Use of a soft cloth reduces
the risk of scratching. If the cloth is wet ensure that a dry
soft cloth is used to wipe down the surface again reducing
the risk of any surface rust appearing.
Fan – select speed to suit cooking conditions.
low – light frying/boiling
medium – frying/wok cooking/heavy boiling
high – grilling, intensive frying and wok cooking
To switch Lights ON and OFF
Touch the ‘light’ symbol
to turn the lights ON, if
adjustment to light intensity is required continue to touch
and hold until required brightness is achieved.
Touch ‘light’ symbol
again to turn the lights OFF.
Using the Timer
At the end of cooking, if the timer
is switched on, the
rangehood will continue to run for an additional 5 to 15
minutes, depending on the selected fan speed.
The fan speed is reduced in 5 minute increments until the
rangehood turns itself OFF.
ie. if the fan speed is set on high, it will run for 5 minutes
then reduce to medium for 5 minutes, then reduce to low
for 5 minutes before finally turning itself OFF.
This should ensure the removal of any odours that remain
after cooking.
This is the indicator/switch
to show when the filter needs
to be cleaned.
Once the filters are cleaned the “Filter” alert can be deactivated
with a single touch.
Maintenance and cleaning
efore maintenance or cleaning is carried out,
the canopy rangehood should be disconnected
from the main power supply. Ensure that the
rangehood is switched off at the wall socket
and the plug removed.
xternal surfaces are susceptible to scratches
and abrasions, so please follow the cleaning
instructions to ensure the best possible result is
achieved without damage.
Control panel surface
The control panel can be cleaned using warm soapy water.
Ensure the cloth is well wrung before cleaning. Use a dry
soft cloth to remove any excess moisture left after cleaning.
Cleaning grease filters
The mesh filters can be cleaned by hand in warm soapy
water. Soak in warm water and some washing up liquid.
For stubborn grease stains use a soft nylon brush to help
remove these stains. After cleaning ensure that the filters
are completely dry before refitting.
Changing the halogen lamps
Ensure lamp is cool before removing

The Thoughtful Design Innovator.
Do you remember the last time you opened a gift that made you say “Oh! How did
you know? That’s exactly what I wanted!” That’s the kind of feeling that the designers
at Electrolux seek to evoke in everyone who chooses or uses one of our products. We
devote time, knowledge, and a great deal of thought to anticipating and creating the
kind of appliances that our customers really need and want.
This kind of thoughtful care means innovating with insight. Not design for design’s sake,
but design for the user’s sake. For us, thoughtful design means making appliances easier
to use and tasks more enjoyable to perform, freeing our customers to experience that
ultimate 21st century luxury, ease of mind. Our aim is to make this ease of mind more
available to more people in more parts of their everyday lives, all over the world. So when
we say we’re thinking of you, you know we mean just that.
The “Thinking of you” promise from Electrolux goes beyond meeting the needs of
today’s consumers. It also means we’re committed to making appliances safe for the
environment—now and for future generations.
Electrolux. Thinking of you.
