12
Description of functions
The following functions are available on
your ventilation hood, depending on the
model:
Vented mode
The air is drawn in and cleaned by the
grease filters and directed outside.
Non-return flap
A non-return flap in the ducting
prevents the exchange of inside and
outside air from occurring when the
ventilation hood is not in use.
The flap is closed when the ventilation
hood is turned off.
When the ventilation hood is turned on,
the non-return flap opens so that the
exhaust air can be transported outside
without any obstruction.
Recirculation mode
The recirculation mode requires a
recirculation kit and OdorFree Charcoal
Filter (available as optional accessories,
see "Technical Data" for more
information)
The air is drawn in and first cleaned by
the grease filters and then by an
OdorFree Charcoal Filter. The cleaned
air is then recirculated back into the
kitchen.
A non-return flap has been provided
with the hood in case your ducting does
not have one. It is inserted into the
outlet duct collar of the fan.

Operation
Switch on the blower
Power levels 1 to 3 are available for light
to heavy cooking vapors and odors.
If heavy cooking vapors and odors
occur temporarily, e.g., during frying,
select stage B as booster level.
 Use the blower switch  to turn on
the blower and select the appropriate
power level.
Turning off the blower
It is advisable to run the blower for a
few minutes after cooking has finished
to neutralize any lingering vapors and
odors in the air.
 To turn the blower off, turn the blower
switch to 0.
Turning the overhead lighting
on/off
The overhead lighting can be turned on
and off independently from the blower.
 Use the light switch  to turn the
overhead lighting on (1) and off (0).
16
Energy-saving tips
This hood operates in a very efficient
and energy-saving manner. The
following will help you to save even
more energy when using it:
– Ensure that there is sufficient
ventilation in the kitchen when
cooking. If there is insufficient air flow
during vented mode, the hood
cannot operate efficiently, causing
increased operating noise levels.
– Always cook with the lowest possible
setting. This produces fewer cooking
vapors so that you can use a lower
hood power level and therefore
benefit from reduced energy
consumption.
– Check the power level selected on
the hood. A lower power level is
generally sufficient for the majority of
cooking. Only use the booster level
when necessary.
– When a large volume of cooking
vapors are being produced, switch to
a high power level in good time. This
is more efficient than operating the
hood for longer to try to capture
cooking vapors that have already
been distributed throughout the
kitchen.
– Make sure that you switch off the
hood after use.
– Clean or change the filters at regular
intervals. Heavily soiled filters reduce
performance, increase the risk of fire
and are unhygienic.
17
Cleaning and care
WARNING: TO REDUCE THE RISK
OF FIRE, ELECTRIC SHOCK, OR
INJURY TO PERSONS, OBSERVE
THE FOLLOWING:
 Before cleaning or servicing the
hood, disconnect it from the power
supply, see "IMPORTANT SAFETY
INSTRUCTIONS".
Stainless steel housing
General information
The surfaces and control buttons are
susceptible to scratching and
chipping.
Observe the following cleaning
instructions.
 Clean all surfaces and control buttons
using warm water and liquid dish
soap. Apply with a sponge cloth.
Make sure that no water gets into the
interior of the hood.
Only use a damp cloth to clean the
hood, especially in the control panel
area.
 After cleaning, dry the surfaces with a
soft cloth.
Avoid the following:
– Cleaners containing soda, acid or
chloride, or cleaners containing
solvents
– Abrasive sponges, e.g. pot scourers
or sponges which have been
previously used with abrasive
cleaning agents.
18
Special instructions for stainless
steel surfaces
(does not apply to control buttons)
 Stainless steel surfaces can also be
cleaned using a non-abrasive
stainless steel cleaner, available from
Miele.
 To prevent the surfaces from quickly

Grease filters
The reusable metal grease filters in the
appliance remove the solid particles
contained in kitchen vapors (fat, dust,
etc.), thereby preventing the ventilation
hood from becoming dirty.
 A dirty filter is a fire hazard!
Cleaning intervals
Over longer periods of time, fat buildup
on the grease filter hardens and makes
cleaning more difficult. Therefore, we
recommend cleaning the grease filters
once every 3-4 weeks.
Removing the grease filters
During removal, the filter may drop to
the ground.
This can result in damage to the filter
and the cooktop.
During cleaning, be sure to hold the
filter securely.
 To remove a grease filter, release the
locking clip. Then, open the filter to a
45° angle, unhook it, and remove it

brush in a mild solution of hot water
and dish soap. Do not use undiluted
dish soap.
Unsuitable cleaning agents
Unsuitable cleaners can cause damage
to the filter surfaces if used regularly.
Do not use any of the following:
 When removing the filters for
cleaning, also clean off any
accessible oil or fat buildup from the
housing. Doing so will prevent a fire
hazard.
 Reinstall the grease filters. When
inserting the filters, make sure that
the locking clip is facing down.
– Lime removers
– Abrasive powders or abrasive liquids
– Aggressive all-purpose cleaners and
degreaser sprays
– Oven sprays
Cleaning the grease filters in the
dishwasher
 Place the filters as upright as possible
in the lower basket. Ensure that the
spray arm is not obstructed.
 Use a common dishwashing
detergent.
 Select a program with a wash
temperature between 120°F (50°C)
and 150°F (65°C). In a Miele
dishwasher use the "Normal"
program.
Depending on the detergent used,
cleaning the filters in a dishwasher
may cause the inside filter surfaces to
become discolored. However, this will
not affect the functioning of the filters
in any way.
After cleaning
 After cleaning, leave the filters on an
absorbent surface to dry.
20
 If the filters have been installed
incorrectly, you can insert a small
screwdriver into the slit to disengage
the locking clip.
Cleaning and care
OdorFree Charcoal Filter
If the hood is equipped for recirculation,
an OdorFree Charcoal Filter must be
installed in addition to the grease filters.
This filter is designed to absorb odorcausing agents and is mounted in the

Installation recommendations
Removing the protective film
– To achieve optimum vapor extraction,
the hood must be centered over the
cooktop, not to the side.
Protective film has been used to cover
all housing components attached to
stainless steel models. This will shield
them from any damage that may occur
during transport.
– The cooktop should be no wider than
the hood. Preferably, it should be
narrower for better extraction.
– The mounting area must be easily
accessible. The ventilation hood
should be easy to reach and
disassemble in case a service call is
necessary. This should be taken into
consideration when planning the
position of cabinetry, shelves,
ceilings or decorative elements in the
vicinity of the ventilation hood.
28
 Remove the grease filters from the
appliance and remove the protective
film from the frames of the grease
filters and the housing. The film can

Installation
Preparation for vented mode
 Insert the hood.
 When using  6" (150 mm) exhaust
ducting, use a sharp knife to cut the
exhaust socket to size with.
When using  5" (125 mm) exhaust
ducting, install the exhaust socket as
is.
 Tighten both screws on the left- and
right-hand side at the back of the
hood. This adjusts the alignment of
the hood to prevent it being lifted off
the brackets.
 Install the lamp again.
 Reinsert the grease filters.
34
 Insert the non-return flap, if required.
Make sure the flap opens easily and
closes again by itself.
Installation
Power supply
Refer to the notes in "Electrical
connection" and "IMPORTANT
SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS" before
connecting to the electricity supply.
 Connect the hood to the electrical
supply.
Functional check
 To do this, switch the blower on.
 Secure the exhaust ducting to the
exhaust socket, e.g., with a hose clip
(available as an optional accessory)
on flexible ducting.
 Insert the exhaust socket into the
exhaust opening and secure it by
turning it slightly clockwise.
– In vented mode, the air should not
come out of the recirculation grille at
the front of the hood.
– In recirculation mode, the air should
come out of the recirculation grille at
the front of the hood.
If this does not happen, the deflector is
not installed correctly (see "Deflector").
 See "Connection for vented mode"
for additional instructions on
attaching the ducting.
Preparation for recirculation
mode
 Fit the charcoal filter (see "Cleaning
and care").

Electrical connection
WARNING: TO REDUCE THE RISK
OF FIRE, ELECTRIC SHOCK, OR
INJURY TO PERSONS, OBSERVE
THE FOLLOWING:
All electrical work should be
performed by a qualified electrician
in strict accordance with national
regulations (for USA: ANSI-NFPA 70)
and local safety regulations.
Installation, repairs and other work
by unqualified persons could be
dangerous.
Ensure that power to the appliance is
OFF while installation or repair work
is performed.
Verify that the voltage, load and
circuit rating information found on
the data plate (located behind the
baffle filters), match the household
electrical supply before installing the
hood.
Use only with ventilation hood cordconnection kits that have been
investigated and found acceptable
for use with this model hood.
If there is any question concerning
the electrical connection of this
appliance to your power supply,
please consult a licensed electrician
or call Miele’s Technical Service
Department.
WARNING: THIS APPLIANCE MUST
BE GROUNDED
36
Grounding Instructions
WARNING - Improper grounding can
result in a risk of electric shock.
This appliance must be grounded. In
the event of an electrical short circuit,
grounding reduces the risk of electric
shock by providing a path of least
resistance. This appliance is equipped
with a cord having a grounding wire
with a grounding plug.
If there is any doubt, have the electrical
system of the house checked by a
qualified electrician.
Do not use an extension cord. If the
power supply cord is too short, have a
qualified electrician install an outlet near
the appliance.
 The plug must be plugged into an
outlet that is properly installed and
grounded.
WARNING - Grounding instructions
(Canada)
The grounding-type attachment plug
shall be connected to a groundingtype receptacle installed in
accordance with CSA C22.1-12,
Canadian Electrical Code, Part I.
Air venting
WARNING: Danger of toxic fumes.
Gas cooking appliances release
carbon monoxide that can be
harmful or fatal if inhaled.
To reduce the risk of fire and to
properly exhaust air, the exhaust
gases extracted by the hood should
be vented outside of the building
only.
Do not vent exhaust air into spaces
within walls or ceilings or in attics,
crawl spaces or garages.
To reduce the risk of fire, only use
metal ductwork.
Please read and follow the
"IMPORTANT SAFETY
INSTRUCTIONS" to reduce the risk
of personal injury. Follow all local
building codes when installing the
hood.
Only use smooth pipes or flexible
duct hoses made from noncombustible materials for exhaust
ductwork.
To achieve the greatest possible air
extraction with the lowest noise levels,
please note the following:
– The diameter of the exhaust duct
should not be less than 6" (150 mm).
– If flat exhaust ducts are used, the
cross section should not be smaller
than that of the exhaust connector.
– The exhaust duct should be as short
and straight as possible.
– Make sure that all connections are
secure and airtight.
Remember that any constriction of
the airflow will reduce extraction
performance and increase operating
noise.
 If the exhaust duct is to be routed
through an outside wall, we
recommend installing a telescopic
wall vent or a rooftop vent (available
as an optional accessory).
 If the exhaust air is conveyed into an
exhaust air chimney, the inlet
connector must face the flow
direction.
 When installing the exhaust duct
horizontally, a minimum slope of ¹/₈ inch
per foot must be maintained to prevent
condensate from flowing into the
ventilation hood.
 If the exhaust duct is to be routed
through cool rooms, ceilings, etc., the
temperatures in these different areas
may differ greatly. Therefore water
condensation must be considered
and the exhaust duct will need to be
insulated.
– If elbows are needed, make sure they
have a large radius.
– The exhaust duct itself must not be
kinked or compressed.
37
Air venting
Condensate trap
In addition to insulating the exhaust
duct, we recommend installing a
condensate trap to collect and
evaporate any condensate which might
accumulate.
Condensate traps are available for
exhaust ducts with a diameter of
5" (125 mm) or 6" (150 mm).
 When installing a condensate trap,
make sure that it is positioned
vertically and, if possible, directly
above the hood outlet duct collar.
The arrow on the housing indicates
the direction of airflow.
