Hood Description - Fig. 1
1. Control panel
2. Metal grease filter
3. Worktop illumination
Use: Two systems are available
Exhaust mode (Fig: S)
Vapors are extracted outside through an exhausting pipe that is
affixed to the connection ring above the hood.
Diameter of the exhausting pipe must be equal to that of the
connection ring.
In the horizontal runs the duct must be slightly slanted (about
10°) and directed upwards to vent the air easily from the room to
the outside.
If the hood is supplied with carbon filter then it must be
Filter mode (Fig: K)
This version is used when there is no exhaust duct for
venting outdoors or when it is impossible to install one.
The air is filtered through a carbon filter (for its installation
see paragraph "Carbon filter") and re-circulated into the
room through the grating on the lower side of the
If the hood is not supplied with carbon filter, then it must be ordered and

When installed, the distance between hood and gas burners or electric plates must be not
less than 65 cm providing the total hob output does not exceed 11kw.
For each kw in excess of 11kw the distance between extractor and gas hob must be
increased by 10cm.
Before completing any connection make sure the house voltage corresponds with the
voltage indicated on the label affixed inside the hood.
It is advisable to call a qualified technician to make the electrical connection.
Fit an approved plug or an approved bipolar switch with a minimum contact opening of not
less than 3mm.
The manufacturer is not liable for any problems caused by the user's failure to
observe the above instructions.
The hood is provided with a motor with several speeds. For the best performance, we
recommend using the low speeds in normal conditions and the high speeds in particular
cases of strong odor and vapor concentration.
We recommend starting up the hood a few minutes before cooking and keeping it running
until all the odors have been eliminated.
• The hood cannot be connected to flues of other appliances that run on energy sources
other than electricity.
• When the hood is used at the same time as other appliances that run on energy sources
other than electricity, provision must be made for an adequate air supply.
• No food must be cooked flambé underneath the hood. The use of an unprotected flame is
dangerous for the filters and could cause fires.
Therefore, never use an open flame under the hood. When frying foods, never leave the
pan alone because the cooking oil could flare up.
• Please, keep to the provisions of official directives regarding the question of fume
• The manufacturer refuses to accept any responsibility for damage to the hood or its
catching on fire because of failure to observe the above instructions.

Before performing any maintenance operation, isolate the hood from the electrical supply by
switching off at the connector and removing the connector fuse.
Or if the appliance has been connected through a plug and socket, then the plug must be
removed from the socket.
Metal grease filter (2 or 3 pieces)
The metal grease filter lasts forever and must be washed either by
hand or in the dishwasher (65°C) with suitable detergents. The grease
filters must be washed at least once a month.
Remove the filter using the handles designed for this purpose by pulling
the filter backwards and then downwards (Fig. 2).
Let the filter dry without damaging it before putting it back into place.
Carry out the above steps in reverse order, to put the filters back after having washed them.
Carbon filter (2 pieces)
This filter dissolves cooking odors.
The carbon filter must never be washed.
It should be changed every 4 months with normal use.
Fitting and replacing the carbon filter:
1. Disconnect the hood from the electricity.
2. Remove the metal grease filters (Fig. 2)
3. If the filters have not been installed, place one filter on each side so that they cover
the grates protecting the rotor on the motor. Then turn the centre handle for the
filters in the clockwise direction (Fig. 3).
4. If the charcoal filters have already been installed (covering the grates protecting the
rotor on the motor) and must be replaced, turn the central handle in the
counter-clockwise direction until the filters are unlocked. e) Refit the metal grease
To clean the outside of the hood use a cloth moistened with denatured alcohol or neutral
liquid detergents. Never use products containing abrasive. Wipe brushed stainless steel in
the same direction as the brushing to avoid scratching.
Failure to observe the rules for cleaning the appliance and changing and cleaning
the filters can cause fires. Therefore, we recommend observing these

Replacing the lamp
1. Disconnect the hood from the electricity.
2. Remove the grease filters (Fig. 2).

Watt max. (Fig. 6) and 11-Watt max. (Fig. 7).
4. Refit the metal grease filters.
