• 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.
Cleaning the hood
Warning! Failure to remove oil/grease (at least once a month) could lead to a fire breaking out. Use a soft
cloth and mild cleaning product. Never use harsh substances or alcohol.
Before using the hood
To get best performance from the hood, please read these user instructions carefully and keep them for
future reference.

Make sure the hood has not been damaged during transportation.
The installation and the electrical connections, replacement of power cables with plug or flexible cable
should be carried out by a qualified technician in compliance with current legislation in force.

Instructions for installation and use
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.
Venting mode
The hood comes with an upper air outlet
B for the discharge of fumes to the
outside (venting pipe and fixing straps not
supplied). Fig. 1
Recirculation Mode
This mode is to be used when it is not
possible to vent the air to the outside.
Air is purified by passing through activated
charcoal filters (not provided) and
recirculated back out into the kitchen.
The air is sent back into the atmosphere
via a pipe that passes through the
cupboard cabinetry and is connected to
the connector ring. 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 this

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
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
it with some protection where you can place
the hood and parts.
• Disconnect the hood by turning off the mains
switch in the house whilst 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 socket and that you can connect to an
extractor towards the outside (only in the
venting mode).
• Carry out all the building work necessary (e.g.:
installation of an electrical supply and/or hole to
pass the venting pipe through).
This kind of hood must be inserted into a
cupboard or cabinetry for support.
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 active carbon filter/s if provided
(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

• Connect an extraction pipe to the connection
ring on the hood and, whilst you inserting the
hood into the cabinetry, check that the
extraction pipe and the electrical wire come out
of the hole made in the top of the cupboard.
• Attach the hood to the bottom of the cupboard
with 8 screws. The frame on the box has more
than 8 slots for passing the screws through, use
the most suitable ones for your installation
making them as equidistant as possible.

Always disconnect the power supply before carrying out any kind of maintenance work.
The hood should be cleaned regularly both inside and out (at least as often as you carry out maintenance
on the grease filters).
Use a damp cloth with mild cleaning products. Avoid using harsh products. DO NOT USE ALCOHOL!
Warning: Failure to follow the cleaning instructions on the hood and the replacement and
cleaning of the filters, could lead to a fire starting. Please, therefore, follow the instructions
given carefully.
Grease filter
It should be cleaned by hand once a month with
mild cleaning products, or in the dishwasher at a
low temperature and on the short cycle.
When washing in the dishwasher, the metallic
grease filter might discolour but its filtering abilities
remain unchanged.
In order to dismantle the grease filter, pull the
spring handle to unhook it. Fig. 7
Carbon filter (only in recirculation mode) Fig. 8
The Activated Carbon Filter absorbs the unpleasant
smells produced when cooking.
The saturation of the carbon filter varies depending
on the installation, usage and how often the grease
filters are cleaned.
In any case, the cartridge must be replaced at least
once every four months.
Fitting/dismantling the carbon filter:
- Remove the grease filter, unhook the filter
support frame taking care to disconnect the
control panel and lights (see Fig. 5).
- Attach a carbon filter on each side to cover
both the protection grills on the motor impeller,
then turn the central handle C on the filters
clockwise. Turn the central handle C on each
filter anticlockwise to dismantle.
- Refit the filter support frame, re-connecting the
control panel and lights and refitting the grease
Replacing the bulbs Fig. 9
Disconnect the appliance from the mains supply.
Warning! Before touching the light bulbs
make sure they have cooled down.
