IMPORTANT: The external motor must be protected against atmospheric agents and can be positioned
anywhere in the house, and not necessarily in the kitchen. The maximum recommended length of the
exhaust pipe connecting the motor to the hood is 6 m. In case of elbows in the path established for the
evacuation pipe, it is advisable to position the motor more than 1 m from them so as not to negatively
affect motor efficiency.
2. Arrange the installation template (supplied) on the ceiling and drill the ceiling as indicated. The
extractor hood must be positioned centrally with respect to the hob.
IMPORTANT: Provide a socket for the electrical connection in an accessible place for hood connection.

4. Place the template on the ceiling: Mark the positions of the holes for fixing to the ceiling according to
the four points provided on the template.
5. Make the Ø10 holes with a suitable drill and insert the plugs supplied (A) flush with the ceiling. Screw
the screws (supplied) in the plugs so that they protrude approx. 20 mm from the ceiling (B).
6. Before hanging the hood on the ceiling, make sure the direction of the air outlet connection coincides
with the guide arranged for the exhaust duct, then screw the connection flange and covering sheet to
the hood body.
IMPORTANT: The exhaust air connection can be arranged on any of the side surfaces of the motor case
To modify the outlet connection direction: if already fitted, undo the fixing screws of the connection flange
and the covering sheet and invert the position.
7. Arrange the flexible tube and connect the 200 mm flange to the tube
8. Fix the hood to the ceiling using the washers and nuts supplied.
IMPORTANT: In case of flush ceiling mounting, hang the hood on the screws (A).
IMPORTANT: In case of suspended hood fixing, screw the threaded sleeves (supplied) on the screws (C).
Cut the threaded rod (supplied) to the required length and screw it on the threaded sleeves (B).
9. Connect the hood to the suction tube connected to the external motor. Carry out the electrical
connection. Connect the external motor to the hood with the connection cable.
IMPORTANT: The exhaust air path must be prepared in such a way that the extractor hood can be easily
connected. The flexible air exhaust tube must be positioned without bends.
10. Refit the grease filters and rehook the glass as shown in the figure.

means of the remote control or the switch on the main body of the hood.
Operation using the remote control
The 2010 remote control model has six control buttons.
• Button 1:
Switches the hood on or off. When the hood is switched on, the external
motor is set to extraction power 1.
• Button 2:
Increases the extraction power (1→2→3).
The speed is displayed by lighting up of the LED of the corresponding
Button 2 has no effect on hood deactivation/activation.
• Button 3:
Decreases the extraction power (3→2→1).
The speed is displayed by lighting up of the LED of the corresponding
Button 3 has no effect on hood deactivation/activation.
• Button 4:
Activates timed hood deactivation. This function provides for a speed
decrease from power level 3 to level 1, maintained for 15 minutes before
the hood switches off. During timed operation, the corresponding LED
• Button 5:
Increases the extraction power to maximum, and then automatically
returns to power level 3 after 5 minutes.
The speed is displayed by lighting up of the LED of the corresponding
• Button 6:
Switches the light on or off. The light intensity becomes adjustable by
keeping Button 6 pressed longer.
• Battery Compartment:
The battery compartment is located in the back of the remote control.
Only use CR2032 3V lithium batteries.
Replacing the batteries: the battery compartment cover is located on the back of the remote control.
Lift it with thumb and forefinger until separating the magnetic contact keeping the cover closed.
Remove the old batteries and replace them with new ones of the same type, then refit the cover.
