Read and save these instructions Introduction These instructions describe the technical details of the cooker hood. Since these instructions cover more than one type of hood within the same series, it may be that reference is made to components that do not form part of the hood that you are installing. The hood should be used in the exhaust version to discharge all the kitchen vapours and odours outdoor of the building. Fittings can vary from country to country. We reserve the right to modify the product without any notice always with the aim of improvements and in compliance with the relevant standards. Suggestions for using the hood in exhaust position When an exhaust hood and a heat source requiring ambient air (e.g. gas, oil, coal stoves, etc.) are used atthe same time, attention is required because the air necessary for combustion is exhausted from the room through the hood and this creates depression. There is no such danger when the maximum depression in the room is 0,04 mbar. In this condition no exhaust gas from the heat source is piped. To assure this condition, make openings in the room which cannot be closed (doors, windows, etc. are not sufficient) and through which the air necessary for combustion can freely flow. Note: AII the exhaust ductwork in the apartment or house shouId be studied. In case of doubts, get advice or authorisation from the person or agency responsible for the building. N.B. Note: The efficiency of the exhaust hood decreases as the length of the ducts and number of elbows increase. When using the exhaust version, follow these rules: Do not connect the exhaust hood to chimneys, flues, and air ducts serving the room. Before venting into exhaust flues and ducts no longer in use, ask for the approvai of the person or agency responsible for the building. The evacuated air must not be let into a warm air duct. Forthe evacuation of the exhausted air please note official instructions. Installation The hood must be mounted over the centre of the cooking area. The minimum distance between the cooking area and the underside of the hood is 650 mm. Warning: If the room contains a flued fuel burning appliance which is not of the "balance flue" type make sure these is an adequate air inlet to the room at all times so that fumes are not drawn down the flue. Note: The distances, however, are subject to the safety rules in effect in the various countries. Before drilling the wall make sure that no pipes or cables will be damaged. If there is no outer waste pipe for the exhaust version, an air outlet with a diameter of Ø160 mm must be made through the wall. Wall fixing of the cooker hood Installation by means of the bracket supplied 1) Set the distance between the cooker hob and the hood (pict. 3). 2) Fix the bracket to the wall (pict. 4/A) by using the two screws and the two plugs supplied (pict. 4/B). In a few models four fixing screws may be required. 3) If you used an only tube of connection, fix the carter (pict. 4) The escape diameter is 240 mm 4) Hook or attach the hood to the bracket using the screws supplied and check carefully that it has been done properly. A few hoods may be supplied with specific screws for their horizontal or vertical adjustment (pict. 4/N). 5) In order to provide an exact installation the cooker hood (in the rear of the body) is supplied with two holes of 8 mm (5/16) diameter (pict. 4/S), where the two screws with plugs have to be inserted (pict. 4/Q).Ensure that all parts are properly fixed and that it is impossible to touch moving parts. Connection exhaust Link a 150 mm or 125 mm diameter air outlet chimney to the spigot (pict. 4 and 4/M). This pipe is not supplied with the hood. WARNING: TO REDUCE THE RISK OF FIRE, USE ONL Y METAL DUCTWORK. Attention: The appliance is provided with a supply cord without plug, the appliance must be positioned so that the plug will be accessible. Attention: ifthere are three wires in the electrical supply cable they must be connected as follows: Green/yellow = ground - Blu = neutral - Brown = line Important: the hood manufacturer will not be responsible for any damage or loss caused by failure to observe these instructions. Important: a damaged power supply cord must be replaced by the service. WARNING GROUNDING INSTRUCTIONS This appliance must be grounded.In the event of an electrical short circuit, grounding reduces the risk of electric shock by providing an escape wire for the electric current. This appliance is equipped with a cord having a grounding wire. The plug must be plugged into an outlet that is properly installed and grounded. WARNING -Improper grounding can result in a risk of electric shock. Consult a qualified electrician if the grounding instructions are not completely understood,or if doubt exists as to whether the appliance is properly grounded. Do not use an extension cord. If the power supply cord is too short. have a qualified electrician install an outlet near the appliance. USING COOKER HOOD The cooker hood should be switched on either before or at the same as cooking orfrying commences. The filters are more effective if the fan is not switched off immediately after cooking or frying is completed, but only after a period of some 20-30 minutes. Before using the cooker hood please ensure that all plastic films like on metal grease filter or stainless steel ducting are removed. USER INSTRUCTIONS The cooker hood is equipped with 2 motors The functions buttons (fig.2) are double, at the right side you can find the controls for the right motor and lamps, at the left side you can find the controls for the left motor and lamps The cooker hood is equipped of the following functions (Fig.2): the symbol shows the ignition key for the oven light (ON / OFF)(fig.2/1) the symbol shows the key switch ON/OFF of the motor (fig.2/2) the symbols shows the keys of the speeds of the motor.
