Installation recommendations
Structural support
– We also recommend a distance of at
least 25 ¹/₂" (650 mm) above electric
cooktops to provide more workspace
and easier cooking under the hood.
– When selecting an installation height,
always take the user height into con‐
sideration. Users should have ample
space to work comfortably on the
cooktop and reach the ventilation
hood controls with ease.
– Please note that the greater the dis‐
tance from the cooktop, the less ef‐
fective the hood is at drawing in the
cooking vapors.
– To achieve optimal vapor extraction,
make sure that the hood covers the
cooktop. The hood should be posi‐
tioned centrally over the cooktop, not
to the side or rear.
– The cooktop should be no wider than
the hood. Preferably, it should be
– The mounting area must be easily
accessible. The ventilation hood
should be easy to reach and disas‐
semble in case a service call is nec‐
essary. This should be taken into
consideration when planning the po‐
sition of cupboards, shelves, ceilings
or decorative elements in the vicinity
of the ventilation hood.
The hood must be attached to rigid
structural framing that is supported
in its entirety by the ceiling joists, or
to the ceiling joists directly. Do not
attach the plate directly to the ceiling
with anchors, toggle bolts, etc.
Removing the protective film
The housing components are covered
by a protective film to prevent them
from becoming damaged during trans‐
 Please remove this film before instal‐
ling the housing components. It can
be peeled off easily without any addi‐
tional tools.

– Place a section of the exhaust duct‐
ing in the ceiling and feed it down
through the cross-sectional area as
illustrated. Exhaust ducting of ap‐
prox. 27 ⁹/₁₆" (700 mm) length is re‐
quired between the ceiling and the
hood exhaust socket.
– Secure the exhaust ducting to the ex‐
haust socket, e.g. with a hose clip
(available as an optional accessory)
on flexible ducting.
 Place the power cord and guide it
through the ceiling in the area shown.
A power cord approx. 27 ⁹/₁₆"
(700 mm) in length is required be‐
tween the ceiling and the hood con‐
 Use a knife to release the four
spacers and the two covers from the
spacer frame supplied.
 Drill four holes  ³/₈" (10 mm), ap‐
prox. 4 ¹/₂" (115 mm) deep for the
plugs supplied.
 Use the spacer frame as a drilling
template. Place it on the ceiling with
the arrows pointing forwards. Using
the notches, align the spacer frame
on the intersecting lines and make
pencil marks for the drill holes.
 Place the four plugs in the holes and
screw in the four screws so that they
protrude by approx. 1 ³/₁₆" (30 mm).
The spacer frame can be installed be‐
tween the chimney and the ceiling. This
creates a shadow which gives the illu‐
sion of a gap between the ceiling and
the chimney. This is useful if the ceiling
is not level or is uneven. The hood is
aligned vertically with the spacers sup‐
plied. Visual irregularities between the
chimney and the ceiling are then con‐
cealed by the shadow.
 Mount the spacer frame onto the in‐
stallation frame.
 If you wish to install the hood with the
spacer frame, remove the four inserts
from the fixing holes.
 Hang the installation frame on the
four screws. The front of the frame is
marked with a "V".
 If using the spacer frame, place the
two covers into the fixing holes.

– with the recirculation grilles at the
bottom for vented mode (AE),
– with the recirculation grilles at the top
for recirculation mode (RM).
 Bend the two retaining tabs outwards
to prevent the telescopic chimney
from slipping down again.
 Fit the four telescopic chimney
clamps. When the screws are tight‐
ened, the clamps spread out and
push the telescopic expansion piece
 Bend back the two retaining tabs.
 Push the chimney over the telescopic
chimney and bend the retaining tabs
outwards again to prevent the chim‐
ney from slipping down again.
Tighten the screws only until the top
edge of the telescopic chimney is
evenly aligned with the ceiling or the
spacer frame.
A non-return flap is supplied with the
hood or is already fitted in the exhaust
socket of the motor unit (depending on

non-return flap in the exhaust socket
if your ducting system is not equip‐
ped with one.
Recirculation mode (RM) does not re‐
quire the non-return flap to be insert‐
ed. If there is one present, it should
be removed.

The canopy can now be adjusted to the
desired height, observing the permissi‐
ble height ranges:
– With vented mode: upwards as far as
it will go, downwards only to the "A"
– With recirculation mode: upwards as
far as the "U", downwards as far as it
will go.
Follow the instructions in "Appliance
dimensions." Safety distances be‐
tween the cooktop and ventilation
hood must be observed.
 Raise the canopy to the desired
height and secure it with the screws.
 Hold the chimney securely, bend
back the retaining tabs and carefully
lower it.
The chimney will locate in the cut-out in
the canopy.

 Carefully remove the protective foil
from the grease filters.
 Reinsert the grease filters.
Exhaust duct
WARNING: Danger of toxic fumes.
Gas cooking appliances release car‐
bon monoxide that can be harmful or
fatal if inhaled.
To reduce the risk of fire and to prop‐
erly exhaust air, the exhaust gases
extracted by the hood should be
vented outside of the building only.
Do not vent exhaust air into spaces
within walls or ceilings or in attics,
crawl spaces or garages.
To reduce the risk of fire, only use
metal ductwork.
Please read and follow the "IMPOR‐
reduce the risk of personal injury.
Follow all local building codes when
installing the hood.
 Only use smooth pipes or flexible
duct hoses made from non-flamma‐
ble materials for exhaust ductwork.
 To achieve the greatest possible air
extraction with the lowest noise lev‐
els, please note the following:
– The diameter of the exhaust duct
should not be less than 6" (150 mm).
– If flat exhaust ducts are used, the
cross section should not be smaller
than that of the exhaust connector.
– The exhaust duct should be as short
and straight as possible.
– If elbows are needed, make sure they
have a large radius.
– The exhaust duct itself must not be
kinked or compressed.
– Make sure that all connections are
secure and airtight.
Remember that any constriction of
the airflow will reduce extraction per‐
formance and increase operating
 If the exhaust duct is to be routed
through an outside wall, we recom‐
mend installing a telescopic wall vent
or a rooftop vent (available as an op‐
tional accessory).
 If the exhaust air is to be conducted
into a vent flue, the intake piece must
be aligned with the flow direction of
the flue.
 When installing the exhaust duct hor‐
izontally, you must slope it away from
the source by at least 1 cm per meter
(³/₈" per 3 ¹/₄"). This ensures that
condensate cannot drain back into
the ventilation hood.
 If the exhaust duct is to be routed
through rooms, ceiling space etc., the
temperatures in these different areas
may differ greatly, which means that
the problem of condensation will
need to be addressed. The exhaust
duct will need to be insulated.
Exhaust duct
Condensate trap
In addition to insulating the exhaust
duct, we recommend installing a con‐
densate trap to collect and evaporate
any condensate which might accumu‐
Condensate traps are available for ex‐
haust ducts with a diameter of 5"
(125 mm) or 6" (150 mm).
 When installing a condensate trap,
make sure that it is positioned verti‐
cally and, if possible, directly above
the hood outlet duct collar.
The arrow on the housing indicates
the direction of airflow.
Electrical connection
All electrical work should be per‐
formed by a qualified electrician in
strict accordance with national regu‐
lations (for USA: ANSI-NFPA 70) and
local safety regulations. Installation,
repairs and other work by unqualified
persons could be dangerous.
Ensure that power to the appliance is
OFF while installation or repair work
is performed.
Verify that the voltage, load and cir‐
cuit rating information found on the
data plate (located behind the baffle
filters), match the household electri‐
cal supply before installing the hood.
Use only with ventilation hood cordconnection kits that have been in‐
vestigated and found acceptable for
use with this model hood.
If there is any question concerning
the electrical connection of this ap‐
pliance to your power supply, please
consult a licensed electrician or call
