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

for stainless steel can also be used.
Apply sparingly with even pressure.
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 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 whenever the
grease filter timer indicator lights.
A dirty filter is a fire hazard.
^ Clean the filters
- by hand: use a scrub brush in
warm water with a mild detergent.
- in a dishwasher: place the filters in
the lower basket, making sure that
the spray arm is not blocked.
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
^ After cleaning, the filters can be
placed on a towel to air dry.

Air extraction
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.
Please read and follow the "Warning
and Safety Instructions" to reduce the
risk of personal injury. Follow all local
building codes when installing the
– 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 (1cm 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.
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
– Noise levels of the hood will increase
if flat ducts or round ducts of less
than 6" (150 mm) in diameter are
To reduce the risk of fire, only use
metal ductwork.
To reduce risk of fire and to properly
exhaust air, be sure to duct air outside. Do not vent exhaust air into
spaces within walls or ceilings or
into attics, crawl spaces, or garages.
– If the exhaust is ducted into an inactive flue, the air must be expelled
parallel to the flow direction of the
Air extraction
Never connect an exhaust hood to
an active chimney, dryer vent, vent
flue, or room venting ductwork. Seek
professional advice before connecting an exhaust hood vent to an existing, inactive chimney or vent flue.
Ductwork with a diameter of less
than 6" (150 mm) should only be
used when absolutely necessary. As
duct diameter decreases, the hood’s
performance and sound levels will
be affected.
If the ductwork runs through rooms,
ceilings, garages, etc. where temperature variations exist, it may need to be
insulated to reduce condensation. In
some cases, a condensate trap may
also be required to collect and evaporate any condensate which may occur.
When installing a condensate trap,
ensure that it is positioned vertically
and if possible directly above the exhaust outlet.
