Safety instructions
These warnings are provided in the interest of your safety.Ensure that you
understand them all before installing or using the appliance. Your safety is of
paramount importance. If you are unsure about any of these meanings or
warnings contact the Customer Care department
Please retain this instruction book for future reference, particularly if the

Installation and service
Any electrical installation of the cooker hood must be carried out by a
qualified electrician and the hood itself must be installed by someone
with experience. Installation made by an unqualified person can lead to
loss of function of the cooker hood and possible damage to person and
and/or property.
● The cooker hood must be at least 50 cm above electric hobs or electric
ranges, or at least 65 cm above gas burners or gas ranges.
● Ensure that the power cable is not damaged during installation.
● The cooker hood is only in stand by mode unless the plug or the fuse is
● The cooker hood cannot be connected to flues of other appliances that
run on energy sources other than electricity. Please, keep to the
provisions of official directives regarding fume discharge.
Use of cooker hood
● This appliance is for domestic use only in a normal household.
● Never leave any deep-frying, melting fat, paraffin or any other
inflammable liquid unattended on the hob. In the event of fire:
Immediately switch off the cooker hood and the cooker. Note! Cover
the fire. Never use water.
Never do any flambé cooking underneath the cooker hood. It can cause
a fire. Remember that overheated fat may spontaneously ignite. Never
leave the frying pan unattended.
It is essential that the grease filter is regularly cleaned to help avoid fat
dripping on to the hot zone and causing a fire. Read the section on
“Maintenance and Cleaning” in the instruction book.
Prevent accidents when disposing of your cooker hood. Disconnect the
power plug from the wall socket and cut the power cord at the hood
inlet.Contact your local authority for information on where to dispose of
the cooker hood.
Description of the cooker hood
There are two possible systems:
● Extraction of air to the outside using an
optional venting kit and evacuation
● Recirculation using an optional carbon

Function at displayed ”SENSOR”
If the hand is moved over the sensor or the knob T4 is pressed, the light
is switched on and the motor starts to run on second speed.
Speed changes can be made with the knobs T4/T5
If the hand is again mowed over the sensor, the light and motor is
switched off
If, when stand-by mode is activated, the knob T5 is pressed, the
intensive speed is started and the light is switched on.
Function when ”SENSOR” is not displayed
By pressing the knob T4, the lamps are switched on and the motor
starts on second speed
Speed changes can be made with the knobs T4/T5
Delayed switch off
The delayed switch off can be activated with knob T6 while the motor is
The display shows remaining minutes until the motor and lamps (if on)
are switched off
The switch off delay is depending on motor speed:
Speed 1: 20 minutes
Speed 2: 15 minutes
Speed 3: 10 minutes
Intensive speed: 5 minutes
Filter saturation indicator:
If the display shows the letter ”F”, it means that the grease filters should
be cleaned (after running 40 hours)
If the display shows the letter ”C”, it means that also the carbon filter
should be cleaned or replaced (after running 160 hours). See
To reactivate the filter saturation indication and erase the letters F or C
from the display, press when in OFF mode the knobs T4 and T5
simultaneously for minimum 2 seconds.
The saturation indicator is reset when “F” or “C” turn off on the display.
Caution: the appliance is not set to indicate saturation of the charcoal
filter. If you decide to use it in recirculation mode (with charcoal filter)
signalling of filter saturation must be set as follows: turn the hood OFF,
then press T5 and T6 simultaneously for 3 seconds.
Correct ventilation
If the cooker hood is to work correctly there must be an
underpressure in the kitchen. It is important to keep the kitchen windows
closed and have a window in an adjacent room open.
Important to know
Not applicable for recirculation. Great care must be taken if the hood is
used at the same time as a burner or fireplace (e.g. gas, diesel, coal or
wood heaters, water heaters, etc.), as the hood will expel air which is
required by these other appliances. Attend to it by opening a window. The
negative pressure in the room must not exceed 0,04 mbar to prevent fumes
being drawn back into the room by the cooker hood.
Maintenance and cleaning
Before doing any maintenance work on the hood, disconnect it
from the main supply by disconnecting the plug from the wall
socket or unscrewing the fuse.
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.
Cleaning the grease filters
Clean the filter every month or every
other month according to how much
the hood is used. The cleaner the
filters, the more grease they collect.
Remove the filters by (Fig. 3):
● Push the handle towards the rear
of the hood.
● Pull the filter down at the front
and remove it forwards.
The filter is made of aluminium wires
on which the grease collects. Clean
the filter in hot water using a detergent,
or in a dishwasher. Let the filter dry
before putting it back. Note that a
dishwasher may discolour the filter.
Fig. 3
Changing and cleaning the carbon filter
Only applicable for recirculation. The carbon filters absorb smells and
Unlike other carbon filters, the LONGLIFE carbon filter can be cleaned and
reactivated. At normal use the filter should be cleaned every second month.
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.
The KFL 60/80 carbon filter can not be reactivated, it has to be changed after
6-8 months of normal use.
After approximately three years of use, the KF8 filter should be replaced with
a new, as the odour reduction capacity will be reduced.
To remove the filter (Fig. 4):
● Remove the grease filters.
● Press the red buttons (A), lower the front of
the carbon filter.
● Remove the carbon filter.
● Replace in reverse order.
Fig. 4
Clean the filters regularly. The grease that collects in the filters
and the duct could ignite if a hot plate is left on (or if overheating
Changing the light
Disconnect the cooker hood from the main supply before changing the light.
To change the light (Fig. 5):
● Press (1) the lamp cover (2) and open it.
● Replace the old bulb with a new one of the same type (3).
● Close the lamp cover (4).
