Safety warnings
For the user
• The cooker hood is designed to extract unpleasant odours from the
kitchen, it will not extract steam.
• Always cover lighted elements, to prevent excess heat from
damaging the appliance. In the case of oil, gas and coal fired
cookers it is essential to avoid open flames.
• Also, when frying, keep the deep frying pan on the cooker top/
cooker under careful control.
• The hot oil in the frying pan might ignite due to overheating.
• The risk of self-ignition increases when the oil being used is dirty.
• It is extremely important to note that overheating can cause a fire.
• Never carry out any flambé cooking under the hood.
• Always disconnect the unit from the power supply before
carrying out any work on the hood, including replacing the
light bulb (take the cartridge fuse out of the fuse holder or switch
off the automatic circuit breaker).
• It is very important to clean the hood and replace the filter at
the recommended intervals. Failure to do so could cause
grease deposits to build up, resulting in a fire hazard.
• The appliance is not intended for use by young children or infirm
persons without supervision.
• Young children should be supervised to ensure that they do not play
with the appliance.
• WARNING - Ensure that the appliance is switched off before
replacing the lamp to avoid the possibility of electric shock.
For the installer
• When used as an extractor unit, the hood must be fitted with a
150mm diameter hose.
• Should there already be a pipe of diameter 125 mm that ducts to
the outside through the walls or roof, it is possible to use the 150/
125 mm reduction flange provided. In this case the hood will be
slightly noisier.
• When installing the hood, make sure you respect the following
minimum distance from the top edge of the cooking hob/ring
electric cookers
500 mm
gas cookers
700 mm
coal and oil cookers
750 mm min.
• The national Standard on fuel-burning systems specifies a maximum
depression of 0.04 mbar in such rooms.
• The air outlet must not be connected to chimney flues or combustion gas ducts. The air outlet must under no circumstances be
connected to ventilation ducts for rooms in which fuel-burning
appliances are installed.
• The air outlet installation must comply with the regulations laid down
by the relevant authorities.
• When the unit is used in its extractor version, a sufficiently large
ventilation hole must be provided, with dimensions that are approximately the same as the outlet hole.
• National and regional building regulations impose a number of
restrictions on using hoods and fuel-burning appliances connected
to a chimney, such as coal or oil room-heaters and gas fires, in the
same room.
• Hoods can only be used safely with appliances connected to a
chimney if the room and/or flat (air/environment combination) is
ventilated from outside using a suitable ventilation hole approximately 500-600 cm2 large to avoid the possibility of a depression
being created during operation of the hood.
• If you have any doubts, contact the relevant controlling authority or
building inspector’s office.
• Since the rule for rooms with fuel burning appliances is “outlet hole
of the same size as the ventilation hole”, a hole of 500-600 cm2,
which is to say a larger hole, could reduce the performance of the
extractor hood.
• If the hood is used in its filtering function, it will operate simply and
safely in the above conditions without the need for any of the
aforementioned measures.
• When the hood is used in its extractor function, the following rules
must be followed to obtain optimal operation:
— short and straight outlet hose
— keep bends in outlet hose to a minimum
— never install the hoses with an acute angle, they must always
follow a gentle curve.
— keep the hose as large as possible (preferably the same diameter as the outlet hole).
• Failure to observe these basic instructions will drastically reduce the
performance and increase the noise levels of the extractor hood.
Description of the Appliance
• The hood is supplied as an extractor unit and can also be used with
a filtering function by fitting one charcoal filter.
• You will need an original AEG charcoal filter for this function
(Available from your local AEG Service Force Centre).
• Only for CHDD 8890: The cooker hood is supplied ready for use as
a recirculation hood and may be used for extraction by removing the
charcoal filter which has been fitted inside the cooker hood.
Extractor version
• In this version fumes are extracted to the
outside via a hose connected to the
coupling ring. Fig. 1.
• In order to obtain the best performance the
hose should have a diameter equal to the
outlet hole.
Should there already be a pipe of diameter
125 mm that ducts to the outside through
the walls or roof, it is possible to use the
150/125 mm reduction flange provided. In
this case the hood will be slightly noisier.
Fig. 1
Filter Version
• The air is filtered through a charcoal filter and returned to the
• You will need an original AEG charcoal filter for the filtering function.
(See Special Accessories).
• Optionally, the position of the chimney elements can be changed.
When using the hood in the filter version the chimney must be fixed
at the top, with the air outlet grill at the side.
Control Panel
• Best results are obtained by using a low speed for normal
conditions and a high speed when odours are more concentrated.
Turn the hood on a few minutes before you start cooking, you will
then get an under pressure in the kitchen. The hood should be left
on after cooking for about 15 minutes or until all the odours have
disappeared. The control switches are located on the unit’s front

The display shows the remaining operation time, at the end of the
time an acoustic signal is heard. Depressing the push-button
again exits the function.
Should the hood or the controls fail to operate: disconnect the power
supply for at least 5 seconds. After reconnecting the power supply wait
15 seconds and then check that the cooker hood is now operating
Control device for grease and charcoal filters
This hood is fitted with a device that signals when it is necessary to
clean the grease filter or the charcoal filter (if the hood is used in the
recirculation version with a charcoal filter).
On delivery, the hood is not supplied with a charcoal filter, so the
saturation indicator will be disabled.
If the hood is to be used with a charcoal filter, the saturation
indicator light must be enabled as follows:
Press buttons 4 and 5 simultaneously and hold them for 3 seconds.
At first only the grease filter LED F will illuminate, but when the
charcoal filter LED C illuminates the saturation indicator will be
To disable it: Press buttons 4 and 5 again simultaneously and hold
them for 3 seconds, until the charcoal filter LED C goes out.
Grease filter LED (F)
LED F will start to flash when it is time to clean the grease filter.
Cleaning will be necessary after 40 working hours. Always comply
with the maintenance instructions for the grease filter.
Charcoal filter LED (C)
The charcoal filter LED C will start to flash when the charcoal filter
needs to be replaced.
This operation is necessary after approximately 160 working hours.
Resetting the saturation indicator
After cleaning or replacing the filters, press button 1 for 3 seconds until
the grease filter LED F or the charcoal filter LED C stops flashing.
Warning! The resetting of the saturation indicator MUST be done in
stand-by, never disconnect the hood from the mains.
Maintenance and care
• The hood must always be disconnected from the electricity
supply before beginning any maintenance work.
Cleaning the hood
• Clean the outside of the hood using a damp cloth and a mild detergent.
• Never use corrosive, abrasive or flammable cleaning products.
• Never insert pointed objects in the motor’s protective grid.
• Wash the outside surfaces using a delicate detergent solution.
Never use caustic detergents or abrasive brushes or powders.
• Only ever clean the switch panel and filter grille using a damp cloth
and delicate detergents.
• It is extremely important to clean the unit and change the filters at
the recommended intervals. Failure to do so will cause grease
deposits to build up that could constitute a fire hazard.
Metal grease filter
• The purpose of the grease filters is to absorb grease particles which
form during cooking and it must always be used, either in the
external extraction or internal recycling function.
Attention: the metal grease filters must be removed and washed,
either by hand or in the dishwasher, every four weeks.
Removing the metal grease filter
• First, push the metal grease filter stop backwards, then extract the
filter, pulling downwards. Fig. 3.
Hand washing
Soak grease filters for about one hour in
hot water with a grease-loosening
cleaner, then rinse off thoroughly with hot
water. Repeat the process if necessary.
Refit the grease filters when they are
Place grease filters in the dishwasher. Select
most powerful washing programme and highest
temperature, at least 65°C. Repeat the process.
Fig. 3
Refit the grease filters when they are dry.
When washing the metal grease filter in the
dishwasher a slight discolouration of the filter can occur, this does
not have any impact on its performance.
• Clean the inner housing using a hot detergent solution only (never
use caustic detergents, abrasive powders or brushes).
Charcoal filter
• The charcoal filter should only be used if you want to use the hood
in the recirculation function.
• To do this you will need an original AEG charcoal filter (available
from your local Service Force Centre).
• Cleaning/replacing the carbon filter
Unlike other carbon filters, the LONGLIFE carbon filter can be
cleaned and reactivated. At normal use the filter should be cleaned
every second month (when using the hood 2,5 hours per day, in
avarage). The best way to clean the filter is in the dishwasher. Use
normal detergent and choose the highest temperature (65º C).
Wash the filter separately so that no food parts gets stuck on the
filter and later causes bad odours. To reactivate the carbon, the
filter should be dried in an oven for 10 minutes with a temperature
of maximum 100º C.
After approximately three years of use, the carbon filter should be
replaced with a new, as the odour reduction capacity will be
• Fitting
Remove the frame i which supports the filter h by turning 90° the
two knobs g.
Insert the charcoal filter inside the frame and put all parts back in
their place. Fig. 4.
• To remove proceed in the reverse order.
• Always specify the hood model code number and serial number
when ordering replacement filters. This information is shown on the
registration plate located on the inside of the unit.
• The charcoal filter can be ordered from your local AEG Service
Force Centre.

• Failure to observe the instructions on cleaning the unit and
changing the filters will cause a fire hazard. You are therefore
strongly recommended to follow these instructions.
• The manufacturer declines all responsibility for any damage to the
motor or any fire damage linked to inappropriate maintenance or
failure to observe the above safety recommendations.
Changing the light bulb
Disconnect the cooker hood from the main supply.
Remove the lamp cover, use a screw driver as a lever. Fig. 5.
Replace the old bulb with a new one of the same type.
Refit the lamp cover.
If the light does not come on, make sure the bulb has been inserted
correctly before contacting your local Service Force Centre.
