• This appliance should not be used by children or people with limited physical or mental
abilities and with no experience or knowledge of its use, unless they are supervised by
someone in charge of their safety or who has taught them how to use the appliance.
• Children should not play with the appliance.
Do not connect the appliance to the mains supply until the installation is completely finished.
Before carrying out any cleaning or maintenance work, always disconnect the hood from the mains
supply by pulling out the plug or turning off the mains switch in the house.
2. Do not flambé food under the hood since the flames generated could cause a fire.
3. Do not leave a frying pan unattended when frying food as the cooking oil could catch fire.
4. Constant cleaning and maintenance of your hood will ensure it works properly. Regularly remove all the
ingrained food from dirty surfaces. Regularly remove and clean or change the filter. Do not use
inflammable material to convey exhaust air.
5. If the hood is used in conjunction with other appliances that run on gas or other fuels, the negative
pressure of the room should be no greater than 4Pa (4 x 10-5 bar). This is why you should make sure
the room is well aired.
6. Exhaust air from the hood should not be eliminated through the heating system chimney or appliances
that run on gas or other fuels.
7. The room should be sufficiently ventilated when the hood is used together with other appliances that
run on gas or other fuels.
8. Before touching the light bulbs, make sure they have cooled down.
Note: always use gloves when installing or carrying out maintenance work.
Electrical connection
The mains voltage should correspond with the voltage shown on the specifications label found inside the
hood. If there is no plug, connect the hood to a socket that complies with current legislation and is in an
easily accessible location. If there is no plug (direct connection to the mains supply) or the plug is not in an
easily accessible location, fit a legally complying bi-polar switch that ensures the complete disconnection of
the mains in the event of a category III line surge, in compliance with the installation regulations.
IMPORTANT: before reconnecting the hood circuit to the power supply, check that it is
working properly, that the mains cable has been properly fitted and that it has NOT been
crushed in its holder during installation.

Instructions for installation and use
This is an excessively heavy product and the movement and installation of the hood should be done by at
least two or more people.
Follow the instructions in this manual carefully. All responsibility is denied for problems, damage or
fire to the appliance resulting in failure to comply with the instructions in this manual.
Extraction Modes
The hood is designed to be used in two
modes: Venting exhaust fumes to the
outside, or by passing the air through a
charcoal filter brfore recirculating the air
back into the kitchen.
Vented Mode
The hood comes with an upper air outlet
B for the discharge of fumes to the
outside (vented exhaust pipe and fixing
straps are not supplied). Fig. 1
Recirculation Mode
If the fumes and steam from cooking
cannot be discharged towards the
outside, you can use the recirculation
mode by fitting an activated carbon filter
(not supplied, this must be purchased
seperately) and the deflector F on the
support (bracket) G; the fumes and steam
are recirculated via the upper grid H and
an exhaust pipe, connected to the upper
air outlet B and the connection ring fitted
to the deflector F (venting exhaust pipe
and fixing straps are not supplied). Fig. 2
The minimum distance between the
upper pan support surfaces on the
cooking appliance and the lowest part of
the cooker hood should be no less than
50 cm in the case of electrical cookers
and 70 cm in the case of gas or mixed
cookers. If the installation instructions for the gas
cooking appliance specify a greater distance, then
follow that instruction.
The hood comes with plugs suitable for most
walls/ceilings. You should however consult a
qualified technician to make sure the installation is
suitable for your kind of wall/ceiling. The wall/roof
should be sufficiently strong to support the weight
of the hood.
it with some protection where you can place
the hood and parts.
• Disconnect the hood by turning off the mains
switch in the house when connecting the
• Furthermore, check that near the area where
you are installing the hood (in an area accessible
even when the hood is fitted) there is an
electric supply and that you can connect the
venting pipe to the outside (only in the venting
• Carry out all the building work necessary (e.g.:
installation of an electrical plug and/or hole to
pass the venting pipe through).
Before installation:
• Check that the product purchased is the right
size for the area where it is to be installed.
• To make installation easier, temporarily remove
the grease filters and other parts that can be
removed whose dismantling and assembly are
described here. These should be refitted when
installation is complete. See the relative
paragraph for dismantling.
• Remove the activated carbon filter/s if fitted
(again consult relative paragraph). This/these
should be re-assembled only if you wish to use
the hood in the recirculation mode.
• Check that there are no parts (e.g. bags with
screws, warranty) inside of the hood (for
transport reasons). If there are, remove them
and put to the side.
• If possible, disconnect and remove the
surrounding units and those near the installation
area of the hood so that you have better
accessibility to the ceiling / wall where the hood
is to be installed. Otherwise, protect the units
as much as possible and all the parts relating to
the installation. Choose a flat surface and cover

• Using a pencil, draw a line on the wall up to the
ceiling that corresponds with the centre line;
this will make installation easier.
• Establish the most suitable distance from the
work surfaces according to your needs
(Important! Respect the minimum distances
specifically indicated in this instruction booklet),
draw a horizontal line on the wall corresponding
to this distance and apply the perforation layout:
the vertical centre line printed on the
perforation layout should correspond with the
centre line drawn on the wall; furthermore the
lower edge of the perforation layout should
correspond with the horizontal line drawn.
