on a gas cooker.
o The manufacturer refuses to accept any responsibility for
damages arising to the hood or it catching on fire, from a failure
to observe the fire safety advice contained in this instruction
booklet.
6
o Remember that when in extraction mode, your cooker hood is
removing air from your room. Ensure that proper ventilation
measures are being observed.
o Note that it removes odours from your room, not steam.
o Warning - Always ensure that the cooker
hood has been disconnected from the
power supply before carrying out any work
on the hood, including replacing light bulbs.
o Do not connect the ducting system of this appliance to any
existing ventilation system which is being used for any other
purpose.

o Do not attempt to use the cooker hood if it is damaged in any
way. Never attempt to use it without the grease filters fitted or
if the filters are excessively greasy!
o Never flambé cook under this cooker hood.
o The lights on this appliance should only be used during operation
of the cooker hood. They should not be left on permanently and
used as a lighting source.
o The cooker hood should not be exposed to a direct heat source
from the cooking device underneath it, i.e. a naked flame from a
gas burner or heat from electric hob zones without a pan on
them.

Using your Baumatic cooker hood
Before first use
IMPORTANT: THIS PROCESS MUST BE FOLLOWED
BEFORE THE COOKER HOOD IS USED FOR THE FIRST
TIME.
o You should use a good quality stainless steel cleaner on ALL of
the stainless steel areas of your cooker hood, before it is used
for the first time.
o This will help to leave a silicone water-resistant film to protect
the stainless steel surfaces.
To use your cooker hood
o Make sure that it has been installed by a suitably qualified
person, as per the information contained in Baumatic’s
installation instructions.
o Find the control panel, which is located in the centre of the
canopy.
o There are several buttons on the control panel, which perform
separate functions.
9
o A

YOU SHOULD ALSO RUN YOUR HOOD FOR TEN
MINUTES AFTER YOU HAVE FINISHED COOKING.
10
Cleaning your Baumatic cooker hood
IMPORTANT: BEFORE CLEANING, ALWAYS
ENSURE THAT YOU HAVE SWITCHED YOUR
COOKER HOOD OFF AT THE OMNI-POLAR
SWITCH, SET AT THE WALL FROM THE CABLE.
Cleaning
o Clean the external parts of your cooker hood with mild liquid
detergent and a new damp cloth.
o Never use abrasive powder, corrosive solvents or brushes.
o Never insert pointed objects into the motor’s protective grid.
o Only clean the control panel and grease filter grill with mild liquid
detergents and a new damp cloth.
o If you are using the appliance in recirculation mode, then be
sure to replace the carbon filter at the recommended interval
(see section on “Fitting the carbon filter”). A build up of grease
could cause a fire hazard.
o Never attempt to clean the area above the grease filters.
The grease filters
o Your cooker hood includes grease filters which help to absorb
grease particles to protect your kitchen & furniture from greasy
residues.
o These metallic filters may become inflammable if they become
saturated with this greasy residue.
o To prevent this fire hazard, the filters should be cleaned
regularly. Depending on use, this should be done every 10-15
days or at least once a month, using hot water and normal
washing-up detergent.
o DO NOT WASH THE GREASE FILTERS IN A DISHWASHER.
11
Maintenance
Removing and cleaning the grease filters
o First remove the grease filters by
pulling down on the handle and
pulling them away from the
cooker hood.
o Soak the grease filter in hot water and washing up liquid for
about an hour.
o Rinse them off thoroughly with hot water.
o Repeat the process if required.
o Refit the grease filters once they
have dried.
o IMPORTANT: Let the grease filters dry thoroughly before
refitting them in the cooker hood.
12
Changing a light bulb
IMPORTANT: BEFORE ATTEMPTING TO CHANGE
A LIGHT BULB, YOU MUST ENSURE THAT YOU
HAVE DISCONNECTED THE COOKER HOOD FROM
YOUR MAINS SUPPLY.
o Remove the grease filter (as
described on page 12).
o Prior to touching the light bulbs ensure that they have cooled
down.
o Find the bulb that requires replacement, you will find it located in
the light fixture which is inside the exposed section of the
canopy.
o Use a screwdriver to remove the glass cover that sits over the
bulb. Unscrew the light bulb that needs to be replaced and insert
a new G4 20W (max) bulb. Then replace the glass cover.
o IMPORTANT: Defective bulbs should be replaced immediately.
o If the lights still do not work, make sure that the bulbs are fitted
properly into their housings before you call for technical
assistance.
o Refit the grease filter.
13
Fitting the carbon filters
If the appliance is being used to be used in recirculation mode then it
is necessary to fit carbon filters. This will help to absorb unpleasant
odours caused by cooking.
IMPORTANT: BEFORE ATTEMPTING TO FIT OR
REMOVE THE CARBON FILTERS, YOU MUST
ENSURE THAT YOU HAVE DISCONNECTED THE
COOKER HOOD FROM YOUR MAINS SUPPLY.
1) Remove the grease filters.
2) Hook the carbon filter over
the pins that are located at the
end of the motor.
3) Turn the carbon filter anticlockwise, until you feel
it click into place.
o Repeat this process for the second carbon filter. You need to
place a carbon filter at either end of the motor.
o Refit the grease filters.
o The carbon filters should be replaced every three months or if
they show signs of damage.
14
Installation
IMPORTANT: Before installation and usage read
all the instructions and make sure that the
voltage (V) and the frequency (Hz) indicated on
the rating plate are exactly the same as the
voltage and frequency in your home. The rating
plate can be found behind the grease filter.
The manufacturer declines all responsibility in the event of the installer
failing to observe all the accident prevention regulations in force,
which are necessary for normal use and the regular operation of the
electric system.
Electrical connection
YOUR COOKER HOOD IS INTENDED FOR FITTED AND
PERMANENT INSTALLATION.
o The cooker hood’s power cable must be fitted upstream from the
electrical connection, using an omni-polar switch with a contact
distance of at least 3 mm. THE FUSE MUST BE RATED AT 3
AMPS.
WARNING: THIS APPLIANCE MUST BE EARTHED. It
should only be connected by a competent person, using
fixed wiring via a double pole switched fused spur outlet.
(UK ONLY).
We recommend that the appliance is connected by a qualified
electrician, who is a member of the N.I.C.E.I.C. and who will comply
with the I.E.E. and local regulations. The wires in the mains lead are
coloured in accordance with the following UK code:
Blue = Neutral, Brown = Live, Green/Yellow = Ground
If you only find two wires in the main’s lead (blue and brown),
then neither must be connected to the earth terminal.
15
o As the colours of the wires in the appliance’s mains lead may not
correspond with the coloured markings identifying the terminals
in your spur box, please proceed as follows:
o The blue wire must be connected to the
terminal marked “N” (neutral), or coloured
black.
o The brown wire must be connected to the
terminal marked “L” (live), or coloured red.
Before beginning installation
o Check that the product purchased is of a suitable size for the
chosen installation area. In addition check whether there is an
electrical socket available that will be accessible once the hood is
mounted. If the product is going to be used in extraction mode,
then there should also be space to connect a ducting hose to the
outside.
o Carry out all necessary masonry work prior to the fitting of the
cooker hood.
o Ensure that all electrical connections are carried out by a suitably
qualified person.
o Before commencing installation of the cooker hood the grease
filters should be removed.
o Check inside the product and insure that there is no transit
packaging or any other materials, such as packets of screws,
guarantees etc. These should be removed and kept for future
use.
o If possible, disconnect and move freestanding or slot-in cookers
from their position, to provide easier access to the rear wall and
ceiling. If this is not possible, then a thick, protective covering
should be placed over the worktop, hob top or cooker. This will
help to protect these surfaces from damage and debris.
o Select a flat surface for assembling the cooker hood. Cover that
surface with a protective covering and place all cooker hood
parts and fittings on to it.
o Rawl plugs are provided to secure the hood to most types of
walls and ceilings. However a qualified technician must verify the
suitability of the materials, in accordance with the type of wall
and ceiling. The wall and ceiling must be strong enough to take
the weight of the hood.
16
o Do not tile, grout or silicone this appliance to the wall. This
appliance is designed to be surface mounted only.
Installing your cooker hood
IMPORTANT: YOU WILL HAVE TO DECIDE BEFORE
INSTALLING YOUR COOKER HOOD WHETHER TO USE
IT IN EXTRACTION MODE OR RECIRCULATION
MODE. PLEASE TURN TO PAGE 23 NOW TO
UNDERSTAND THE DIFFERENCES BETWEEN THESE

8) Connect the coupling to the top of the cooker hood, and then
connect a 125 mm ducting hose to the coupling (please note that
the ducting hose is not supplied with the appliance).
o The other end of the ducting hose should be connected to a
discharge outlet that is suitable for cooking vapours. It should
have a cross section of at least 150 cm².
o The maximum distance between the coupling and your discharge
outlet should be 3 metres, with one 90 degree bend.
Fitting the chimney
9) Take the two chimney
sections (C and D).
o Rest the bottom of
chimney section C on the
top of the hood. You
should take care to
position the tabs on the
chimney section into the
rear of the hood.
o Mark the side
measurement of both
sides of chimney section C
on the wall with a pencil.
20
10) Lift chimney section D upwards until it reaches the ceiling. You
must ensure that it is perpendicular to the hood.
o Mark the side measurement of both sides of chimney section D
on the wall with a pencil and then remove chimney section D.
11) Take the fixing bracket (E) and place it between the two pencil
marks that you made in step 9
o Keeping the bracket in contact with the wall, use a pencil to
mark on the wall the anchoring holes that are cut out of the
bracket

12) Using a 6 mm drill bit, drill out two holes on the pencil markings
that you made in step 11. Insert rawl plugs into the holes and then
use a screwdriver to secure the fixing bracket to the wall.
o Refit chimney section C to the hood and fix it onto the hood
using the two screws that are supplied.
o Secure the top of chimney section C to the fixing bracket, using
the screws provided
o Slide chimney section D inside of chimney section C. Then
secure the upper bracket to the wall, using the same method as
you have just used to secure the lower bracket.
13) Lift chimney section D up to the ceiling and secure it to the fixing
bracket using the screws provided.
22
Completing the installation
If you are setting the appliance to recirculation mode, then you should
now fit the two carbon filters. See the “Fitting the carbon filters”
section on page 14.
The electrical connection must correspond to the electrical requirement
noted on the rating plate, which is placed inside the cooker hood. The
appliance should now be connected to the electrical supply. See page
15 – 16 for detailed information on the electrical connection.
Use a stainless steel cleaner on the stainless steel sections of the
appliance.
Refit the grease filter and then switch on the mains supply
to the appliance. Check that the appliance is operating
correctly by selecting each speed and switching the light
bulbs on and off.
Extraction mode or recirculation mode?
What is the difference between extraction and recirculation
modes?
To get optimum performance from your cooker, the air will be taken
out of the room via external ducting.
Unfortunately if you live in a flat or the hood is too far from an outside
wall, this may not be possible. The only alternative is to recirculate the
air.
In recirculation mode stale air is taken via the grease filter, and passed
through a charcoal filter for purification. The air then re-enters the
kitchen via an opening in the hood.
What is a charcoal filter and do I need one?
All cooker hoods have a grease filter but if you are using your cooker
hood in recirculation mode, then a charcoal filter must be fitted in
addition to the grease filter.
23
