Warning and Safety instructions
Using at the same time as another heating appliance that depends on the air
from the room
 Danger of toxic fumes!
Great care should be taken when using the cooker hood in the
same room or the same area of the house at the same time as
another heating appliance that depends on the air from the room.
Such heating appliances draw in air from the room and duct
exhaust gases out to the open air through a chimney or extraction
ducting. They include gas, oil, wood and coal-fired boilers and
heaters, continuous flow or other water heaters, gas hobs and
ovens.
The cooker hood draws in air from the kitchen and from
neighbouring rooms. This applies to the following modes of
operation:
- extraction mode,
- extraction mode with an external motor,
- recirculation mode with a recirculation box installed outside the
room.
If there is insufficient air, an underpressure will occur. The heating
appliance may be starved of oxygen. This impairs combustion.
Harmful gases could be drawn from the chimney or extraction
ducting back into the room.
Risk of death!
8
Warning and Safety instructions
In order to ensure safe operation and to prevent gases given off by
the heating appliance from being drawn back into the room, when
the cooker hood and the heater are both operated simultaneously,
an underpressure in the room of 0.04 mbar (4 Pa) is the maximum
permissible.
Sufficient ventilation can be maintained by air inlets which cannot
be blocked, e.g. in windows, doors and outside wall vents. The
diameter of the inlet openings must enable sufficient ventilation. A
ventilation brick alone is not generally sufficient to ensure safe
ventilation.
The overall ventilation condition of the dwelling must be taken into
account. If in any doubt, the advice of a competent builder, or for
gas, a qualified gas fitter should be sought.
If the cooker hood is being operated in recirculation mode,
whereby the air is redirected into the room in which it is installed,
the above restrictions do not apply.
9
Warning and Safety instructions
Correct use
 Never use a naked flame beneath the cooker hood. To avoid the
danger of fire, do not flambé or grill over a naked flame.
When switched on, the cooker hood could draw flames into the filter.
Fat deposits could ignite, presenting a fire hazard.
 The cooker hood can become damaged when exposed to
excessive heat.
– When using the cooker hood over a gas hob, ensure that any
burners in use are always covered by a pan. Switch the cooking
zone off when a pan is removed, even for a short time.
– Select a pan which is suitable for the size of the burner.
– Regulate the flame so that it does not burn up the sides of the
pan.
– Avoid overheating the pan (e.g. when cooking with a wok).
 Always switch the cooker hood on when a cooking zone is in use,
otherwise condensation may collect in the hood, which could cause
corrosion.
 Overheated oil and fat can ignite, causing fire damage to the
cooker hood.
When cooking with oil or fat, chip pans and deep fat fryers etc, do
not leave the pans unattended. Similarly, never leave an open grill
unattended when grilling.
10
Warning and Safety instructions
 Do not use the cooker hood without the filters in place. This way
you will avoid the risk of grease and dirt getting into the appliance
and hindering its smooth operation.
 The cooker hood can get very hot during cooking due to heat
rising from the hob.
Do not touch the housing or the grease filters until the cooker hood
has cooled down.
Correct installation
 Refer to the cooker or hob manufacturer's instructions as to
whether a cooker hood may be operated above the cooker/hob.
 Safety regulations prohibit the fitting of a cooker hood over solid
fuel stoves.
 An insufficient safety distance between the hob and the cooker
hood can result in damage to the cooker hood.
The minimum safety distances between the top of the cooker or hob
and the bottom of the cooker hood given in the "Installation" section
of this booklet must be maintained, unless the hob manufacturer
states that a greater safety distance is required.
If more than one cooking appliance is fitted beneath the cooker
hood, and they have different minimum safety distances to the
cooker hood, select the greater distance.
 The distances given in "Installation" must be observed when
fitting the cooker hood.
 Metal parts can have sharp edges which may cause injury.
Wear gloves to protect your hands from being cut.
 Exhaust ducting must be of non-inflammable material. Suitable
material is available from Miele specialist dealers or the Miele Spares
Dept.
 The appliance must not be connected to a chimney or flue which
is in use. Neither should it be connected to ducting which ventilates
rooms with fireplaces.
11
Warning and Safety instructions
 If exhaust air is to be extracted into a chimney or ventilation duct
no longer used for other purposes, seek professional advice.
Cleaning and care
 There is a risk of fire if the cooker hood is not cleaned as
described in these operating instructions.
 Do not use a steam cleaning appliance to clean this appliance.
The steam could reach electrical components and cause a short
circuit.
Accessories
 Only use genuine original Miele accessories and spare parts with
this appliance. Using accessories or spare parts from other
manufacturers will invalidate the warranty and Miele cannot accept
liability.
12
Caring for the environment
Disposal of the packing
material
Disposing of your old
appliance
The packaging is designed to protect
the appliance from damage during
transportation. The packaging materials
used are selected from materials which
are environmentally friendly for disposal
and should be recycled.
Electrical and electronic appliances
often contain valuable materials. They
also contain specific materials,
compounds and components, which
were essential for their correct function
and safety. These could be hazardous
to human health and to the environment
if disposed of with your domestic waste
or if handled incorrectly. Please do not,
therefore, dispose of your old appliance
with your household waste.
Recycling the packaging reduces the
use of raw materials in the
manufacturing process and also
reduces the amount of waste in landfill
sites.
Please dispose of it at your local
community waste collection / recycling
centre for electrical and electronic
appliances, or contact your dealer or
Miele for advice. You are also
responsible (by law, depending on
country) for deleting any personal data
that may be stored on the appliance
being disposed of. Please ensure that
your old appliance poses no risk to
children while being stored prior to
disposal.

Non-return flap
The non-return flap is designed to
prevent the exchange of room and
outside air taking place when the
cooker hood is switched off.
The flap is closed when the cooker
hood is switched off.
When the cooker hood is switched on,
the non-return flap opens for the
cooking vapours to be blown directly
outside.
If the on-site ventilation system does
not have a non-return flap, the nonreturn flap supplied must be fitted in the
exhaust socket in the motor unit.
16
The air is drawn in and cleaned first by
the grease filter and then by a charcoal
filter. The cleaned air is then
recirculated back into the kitchen.
Operation with an external
motor
(...EXT model cooker hoods)
Cooker hoods set up for operation with
an external motor have to be connected
to a Miele external motor located in a
suitable position outside the room in
which the cooker hood is installed. The
external motor is linked to the cooker
hood via a connection cable and then
operated using the controls on the
cooker hood.

Energy saving tips
This cooker hood operates very
efficiently and economically. The
following will help you to save even
more energy when using it:
– Ensure that there is sufficient
ventilation in the kitchen when
cooking. In extraction mode, if there
is insufficient air flow the cooker
hood cannot operate efficiently and
this causes increased operating noise
levels.
– Always cook with the lowest possible
setting. This produces fewer cooking
vapours, so you can use a lower
cooker hood power level and
therefore benefit from reduced
energy consumption.
– Check the power level selected on
the cooker hood. A lower power level
is generally sufficient for the majority
of cooking. Only use the Booster
setting when necessary.
– When a large volume of cooking
vapours is being produced, switch to
a high power level in good time. This
is more efficient than operating the
cooker hood for longer to try to
capture cooking vapours which have
already been distributed throughout
the kitchen.
– Make sure that you switch the cooker
hood off after use.
– Clean or change the filters at regular
intervals. Heavily soiled filters reduce
performance, increase the risk of fire
and are unhygienic.
19
Cleaning and care
 Before proceeding with any
maintenance or cleaning task, the
cooker hood must be disconnected
from the power supply, see "Warning
and safety instructions".
Housing
General information
The surfaces and controls are
susceptible to scratches and
abrasion.
Please observe the following
cleaning instructions.
 All external surfaces and controls can
be cleaned using hot water with a
small amount of washing-up liquid
applied with a well wrung-out soft
sponge or cloth.
Make sure that water does not get
into the cooker hood.
Only clean the area of the controls
with a damp cloth.
 Then wipe the surfaces dry using a
soft cloth.
Do not use:
– cleaning agents containing soda,
acids, chlorides or solvents,
– abrasive cleaning agents, e.g.
powder cleaners or cream cleaners
and abrasive sponges, as well as pot
scourers or sponges which have
been used previously with abrasive
cleaning agents.
20
Important for appliances with
stainless steel surfaces
(This information does not apply to the
controls).
 Stainless steel surfaces can be
cleaned with a proprietary nonabrasive cleaning agent designed
specifically for use on stainless steel.
 To help prevent re-soiling, a
proprietary conditioning agent for
stainless steel (available from Miele)
can also be used.
Apply sparingly with a soft cloth.
Important for the controls
Do not leave soiling on the controls
for any length of time.
Otherwise they may suffer
discolouration or damage.
Remove soiling straight away.
 Please observe the general notes on
cleaning earlier in this section.
Do not use stainless steel cleaning
agents on the controls.
Cleaning and care
Grease filter
The re-usable metal grease filter in the
appliance removes solid particles from
the kitchen vapours (grease, dust, etc)
preventing soiling of the cooker hood.
 An oversaturated filter is a fire
hazard.
Cleaning interval
Accumulated grease solidifies over a
longer period of time and makes
cleaning more difficult. The grease filter
should therefore be cleaned at least
every 3 to 4 weeks.
When removing the grease filter do
not tilt it downwards at an angle.
This can damage the retaining pins.
Removing a grease filter
When handling a grease filter, be
careful not to drop it.
This can result in damage to the filter
and the hob below.
Make sure you hold the filter securely
at all times when handling it.
 With the deflector plate pushed in,
grip the front of the deflector plate
and hold the grease filter securely.
Whilst holding the grease filter pull
the deflector plate out as shown.
 Then lower the grease filter
downwards to remove it.
 Switch off the fan.
Cleaning the grease filter by hand
 Clean the filter with a soft nylon brush
in a mild solution of hot water and a
small amount of washing-up liquid.
Do not use "neat" washing up liquid.
21
Cleaning and care
Unsuitable cleaning agents
Unsuitable cleaning agents can cause
damage to the surface of the filters if
used regularly.
Do not use:
 When removing the filter for cleaning,
also clean off any residues of oil or fat
from the now accessible casing to
prevent the risk of these catching fire.
Fitting the grease filter
– cleaning agents containing descaling
agents
– powder cleaners, cream cleaners
– aggressive multi-purpose cleaning
agents or spray cleaners for grease
– oven sprays
Cleaning the grease filter in a
dishwasher
 Place the grease filter upright or
slightly inclined in the lower basket.
Ensure the spray arm is not
obstructed.
 Use a commercially available
household dishwasher detergent.
 Select a dishwasher programme with
a wash temperature between 50 °C
and 65 °C.
Depending on the detergent used,
cleaning the grease filter in a
dishwasher can cause permanent
discolouration to the internal surfaces
of the filter. However, this will not
affect the functioning of the grease
filter in any way.
After cleaning
 After cleaning, leave the filter to dry
on an absorbent surface before
replacing it.
22
 When fitting the grease filter, make
sure that the red plastic guides are at
the front and facing upwards.
 Replace the grease filter in the front
of the deflector plate, press it
upwards and push it in together with
the deflector plate. It will slide onto
the retaining pins at the back. Finally,
push the grease filter back a little
more.
Cleaning and care
Charcoal filter
When to change the charcoal filter
If the cooker hood is connected for
recirculation, a charcoal filter must be
inserted in addition to the grease filter.
This is designed to absorb cooking
odours.
It is fitted in the canopy above the
grease filter.
 Replace the charcoal filter when it no
longer absorbs kitchen odours
effectively.
It should, however, be replaced at
least every 6 months.
Charcoal filters are available to order via
the Miele Webshop, the Miele Spare
Parts Department (see end of this
booklet for contact details) or from your
Miele dealer.
Disposing of charcoal filters
 Used charcoal filters can be disposed
of with the normal household waste.
The type of charcoal filter required is
listed under "Technical data" at the
back of this booklet.
Fitting/replacing the charcoal filter
 Before fitting or replacing the
charcoal filter, the grease filter must
first be taken out (see previous
section for instructions on how to do
this).
 Take the charcoal filter out of its
packaging.
 Fit the charcoal filter into the frame.
 Replace the grease filter.

Installation recommendations
– To achieve optimum vapour
extraction, the cooker hood must be
positioned centrally over the hob, not
to the side.
– The hob should be no wider than the
cooker hood, and if possible, it
should be narrower.
– The installation area must be easily
accessible. The cooker hood should
be easily accessible and easy to
dismantle in the event that service is
required. This should be taken into
consideration when planning the
position of cupboards, shelves,
ceilings or features in the vicinity of
the cooker hood.
32
Installation
a Example: Installation without a front
panel fitted and with the front edge
of the deflector plate flush with the
front edge of the furniture housing
unit. This installation needs a shelf of
at least 95 mm deep.
b Example: Installation with a front
panel to match the kitchen furniture.
This installation requires dimension
b for the front panel plus 5 mm for
the DML 400 fixing bracket to be
added to the shelf dimension.
The shelf must be correspondingly
deeper.
The remaining installation gap must be
at least 180 mm in depth. If it is less
than 180 mm, position the appliance
further back, and reduce measurement
T accordingly.
The position of the deflector plate can
be adjusted in depth by a maximum of
35 mm at the front.
To position the cooker hood correctly,
cut the spacer strip to the required
depth T and then attach it to the back
of the appliance:
T= Depth of carcase K minus depth of
appliance G
 Cut the spacer strip supplied to
measurement T. Score along the
groove for the smaller measurement
as shown, and remove the surplus.
33
Installation
 Secure the spacer strip underneath
the housing unit sides, flush with the
wall.
 Draw a vertical line up both inside
walls of the housing from the front of
the spacer strip.
34
 The brackets are designed for 16 and
19 mm thick unit sides. Orientate the
bracket so that the vertical depth
matches the thickness of the unit
side.
Screw the brackets onto the right and
left inside walls of the housing unit as
shown. The back edge of the bracket
should align with the vertical line
drawn up from the front of the spacer
strip and the lower edge should align
with the lower edge of the housing
unit side wall.
Installation
To avoid scratching the deflector
plate, do not remove the protective
film between the deflector plate and
the casing until the hood has been
placed in the housing unit.
 Installation of the cooker hood is
carried out without the grease filter
placed in position. If the grease filter
has already been fitted, then it should
be removed (see "Cleaning and
care").
 When fitting a 90 cm wide cooker
hood in a 60 cm wide wall unit, whilst
the deflector plate is pulled out,
unscrew the two deflector plate
spring mounts.
 Lift the appliance up into the housing
from below until the spring mounts at
the side engage in the brackets.
 Push the cooker hood back against
the spacer strip.
 Note for dismantling the cooker hood:
Undoing the screws on the left and
right inside the housing releases the
spring mounts allowing the appliance
to be removed from the unit.
35
Installation
 Secure the cooker hood to the
brackets from below using two
screws on each side.
 Pull out the deflector plate and
remove the protective film between
the deflector plate and the casing.
 Secure the cooker hood to the floor
of the housing unit from below using
4 screws (6 screws are required for a
90 cm wide cooker hood).
To avoid damaging the deflector
plate when it is pulled out, care
should be taken to screw the fixing
screws in straight and to ensure that
the screwheads are countersunk.
36
 Secure the spacer strip to the back of
the appliance from behind using 4
plastic rivets as shown.
Installation
Attaching the front panel
Aligning the deflector plate
The front of the deflector plate can be
fitted with a front panel to match
existing kitchen furniture units.
The front panel must not exceed
1300 g. This applies to front panels with
a depth of up to 30 mm. For larger and
heavier front panels, the weight must be
reduced by e.g. machining it away at
the back.
The position of the deflector plate can
be brought forward by up to 35 mm
using the adjusting screws on either
side of the deflector plate. This allows
the deflector plate to be aligned to the
front of the kitchen furniture units on
either side.
A DML 400 installation kit, available as
an optional accessory, is required for
this.
 Follow the installation instructions
supplied.
 Use a screwdriver to align the
deflector plate correctly.
37
Installation
Fitting the grease filter
 Remove the protective foil around the
edge of the grease filter.
 When fitting the grease filter, make
sure that the red plastic guides are at
the front and facing upwards.
 Replace the grease filter in the front
of the deflector plate, press it
upwards and push it in together with
the deflector plate. It will slide onto
the retaining pins at the back. Finally,
push the grease filter back a little
more.
38
Extraction mode
 Insert the non-return flap, if required.
Make sure that it opens easily and
closes again by itself.
dai2699
 Attach the exhaust ducting, e.g.
flexible hose, to the exhaust socket
using a hose clip (available as an
optional accessory). When using
 125 mm ducting, fit the reducing
collar supplied into the exhaust
socket (see "Connection for air
extraction").
Installation
Recirculation mode
 Attach the exhaust ducting to the
exhaust socket on the cooker hood.
If site conditions are not suitable for the
cooker hood to be used in extraction
mode, the appliance must be set up for
recirculation. A conversion kit, available
through your dealer of from Miele is
required for operating the cooker hood
in recirculation mode. You will also need
a charcoal filter (see "Technical data").
 See "Connection for air extraction"
for further instructions on fitting the
ducting.
Conversion kit DUU 150 with a plastic
grille is suitable for fitting in a nonvisible area at the top of the wall unit.
Conversion kit DUU 151 with a stainless
steel grille is recommended if the grille
is to be fitted in an area which is visible.
 Fit the conversion kit as described in
the installation instructions supplied
with the kit. Make sure that the slats
in the exhaust grille point towards the
39
Installation
centre of the room and not towards a
wall or the ceiling.
A non-return flap is not used in
recirculation mode.
 Fit the charcoal filter (see "Cleaning
and care").
Electrical connection
Refer to the notes in "Electrical
connection" and "Warning and
Safety instructions" before
connecting to the electricity supply.
 For appliances connected to an
external motor (EXT models):
Connect the cooker hood and the
external motor using the connection
cable and the six-pole plug
connector.
 Connect the cooker hood to the
electricity supply.
40
Electrical connection
All electrical work should be
undertaken by a suitably qualified
and competent person in strict
accordance with current national and
local safety regulations (BS 7671 in
the UK).
Installation, repairs and other work
by unqualified persons could be
dangerous, for which the
manufacturer cannot be held liable.
Ensure power is not supplied to the
appliance until after installation or
repair work has been carried out.
Do not connect the appliance to the
mains electricity supply by an
extension lead. These do not
guarantee the required safety of the
appliance.
The connection data is given on the
data plate. This is visible when the
grease filters have been removed.
Ensure that this data matches the
household mains supply.
If the switch is not accessible after
installation (depending on country), an
additional means of disconnection must
be provided for all poles.
For extra safety it is advisable to protect
the appliance with a suitable residual
current device (RCD). Contact a
qualified electrician for advice.
Important
This appliance is supplied for
connection to an a.c. 230 V single
phase 50 Hz supply. The wires in the
mains lead are coloured in accordance
with the following code:
Green/yellow .................................earth
Blue ............................................. neutral
Brown ................................................live
WARNING:
THIS APPLIANCE MUST BE
EARTHED
Connection of this appliance should be
made via a suitable isolator or a double
pole fused spur connection unit which
complies with national and local safety
regulations and the On-Off switch
should be easily accessible after the
appliance has been built in. When
switched off there must be an all-pole
contact gap of 3 mm in the switch
(including switch, fuses and relays
according to EN 60335).
41
Connection for air extraction
 If the cooker hood is used at the
same time as a heating appliance
that relies on oxygen from the same
room, there is a risk in certain
circumstances of toxic fumes
building up.
It is essential that the "Warning and
Safety" instructions are observed.
The cooker hood should be installed
according to local and national
building regulations. Seek approval
from the building inspector where
necessary.
– Ensure that all connections are
strong and airtight.
Remember that any constriction of
the air flow will reduce extraction
performance and increase operating
noise.
 If the exhaust is ducted through an
outside wall, a telescopic wall vent or
a roof vent (available as an optional
accessory) is recommended.
Use smooth pipes or flexible ducting
made from approved non-flammable
materials for exhaust ducting.
When using an external motor, make
sure that the exhaust ducting is
sufficiently rigid. The external motor
can cause an underpressure which
can result in the exhaust ducting
distorting.
To achieve the most efficient air
extraction with the lowest noise levels,
please note the following:
– The diameter of the exhaust ducting
should not be less than 150 mm.
– If flat ducting is being used, the cross
section must not be smaller than the
cross sectional area of the exhaust
connection.
– The exhaust ducting should be as
short and straight as possible.
– Only use wide radius bends.
– The exhaust ducting must not be
kinked or compressed.
42
 If the exhaust air is to be ducted into
a flue, the ducting must be directed in
the flow direction of the flue.
 Where ducting is horizontal, it must
be laid to slope away at at least 1 cm
per metre. This is to ensure that
condensate cannot drain back into
the cooker hood.
 If the exhaust ducting is to run
through rooms, ceiling space etc.
there may be great variations in
temperature between the different
areas. The problem of condensation
will need to be addressed. The
exhaust ducting will need to be
suitably insulated.
Connection for air extraction
Condensate trap
In addition to insulating the exhaust
ducting, we recommend that a suitable
condensate trap is also installed to
collect and evaporate any condensate
which may occur.
Condensate traps for 125 mm or 150
mm ducting are available as optional
accessories.
 When installing a condensate trap,
ensure that it is positioned vertically
and as closely as possible above the
exhaust socket.
The arrow on the housing indicates
the direction of air-flow.
A condensate trap is integrated in
cooker hoods which are designed for
connection to an external motor
(model......EXT).
Silencer
To achieve even further reductions in
noise levels, a special silencer (optional
accessory) can be fitted in the ducting
system.
Extraction mode
The silencer not only reduces noise
from the motor outside the house, but
also sounds from outside (e.g. traffic
noise). For this reason the silencer must
be positioned as close as possible to
the ducting exit .
43
Connection for air extraction
Recirculation mode
The silencer needs to be positioned
between the exhaust socket and the
exhaust grille . Ensure there is
adequate space for fitting it.
Extraction mode with external motor
To minimise noise from the motor in the
kitchen, the silencer should be
positioned in front of the external motor
 if possible, or, if the ducting is long,
above the exhaust socket on the cooker
hood . In the case of an external
motor located inside the house, fitting a
silencer behind the external motor 
reduces the noise of the motor outside
the house.
