wall/ceiling. The wall/ceiling must be strong enough to take
the weight of the hood. Do not tile, grout or silicone this
appliance to the wall. Surface mounting only.
For transportation reasons the upper flue and the lattice girder
are temporarily fixed together with two screws A (fig. 5).
These must be removed and conserved.
Attention! This product envisages a series of installation
operations involving special electric cable connections.
Always check during installation that the passage of these
cables avoids any possible damage to them:
1. Before attaching the hood to the ceiling you need to
decide whether to use the hood in the filtering or suction
The following operations need to be carried out if you
choose the filtering version:
Mount one of the supplied connection rings on deflector F
(Fig. 6) (in any case, the one without non-return fumes
valve, when this is supplied) with two screws.
Note: Mount the connection ring so that the circular hole
is central with respect to the deflector.
Mount deflector F on the upper brackets of the lattice
girder with 4 screws.
2. Remove the 2 C screws (Fig. 1) that temporarily fix the
two parts of the lattice girder together.
Adjust the extension of lattice girder “L”, according to the
following formula:
L = h - (d+44cm)
L= lattice girder extension,
h = distance between the ceiling and the support
surfaces of the cooking device containers.
d= distance between the lower park of the hood and the
support surfaces of the cooking device containers.
Fix the lattice girder with the 8 D screws (Fig. 1).
3. Place supplied template E (Fig. 1) onto the ceiling and
make the holes indicated and also prepare the area for
electrical connection.
The side with the arrow on the template corresponds to
the front part of the hood (commands side).
For the suction version only: make the outlet for the
discharge tube and install a tube of sufficient length to
reach the connection ring on the hood motor, when this is
Insert 4 dowels.
4. Mount the lattice girder onto the ceiling and fix with 4
screws and washers I (Fig. 1).
Attention! The lattice girder has a side: the front is the
part without the hooking fold (see also Fig. 1).
5. Mount the B connection ring (Fig. 1), with the non-return
fumes valve (when supplied) onto the motor housing with
two screws.
Note: Mount the connection ring so that the circular hole
The hood is designed to be used either for exhausting or filter
Ducting version
The hood is equipped with a top air outlet B for discharge of
fumes to the outside (exhaust pipe and pipe fixing clamps not
provided). Filter version
Should it not be possible to discharge cooking fumes and
vapour to the outside, the hood can be used in the filter
version, fitting an activated carbon filter and the deflector F
on the support (bracket) G, fumes and vapours are recycled
through the top grille H by means of an exhaust pipe
connected to the top air outlet B and the connection ring
mounted on the deflector F (exhaust pipe and pipe fixing
clamps not provided).
To switch from “Vented” to “Ventless” operation, contact your
retailer or the manufacturer for the relevant assembly kit.
The models with no suction motor only operate in ducting
mode, and must be connected to an external suction device
(not supplied).
The minimum distance between the supporting surface for the
cooking vessels on the hob and the lowest part of the range
hood must be not less than 60cm from electric cookers and
65cm from gas or mixed cookers.
If the instructions for installation for the gas hob specify a
greater distance, this must be adhered to.
Electrical connection
The electrical tension must correspond to the tension noted on
the label placed inside the cooker hood. Connect the electrical
plug, where provided, to the an easily accessible outlet in
conformity with local standards in force. Where an electrical
plug is not provided (for direct connection to electrical
network) or is not easily accessible, place a standards
approved bipolar switch that provide full disconnection under
overvoltage category III conditions, in accordance with the
wiring rules.
Attention: substituting the supply cable must be carried out
by the authorised technical assistance service.
Expansion wall plugs are provided to secure the hood to most
types of walls/ceilings. However, a qualified technician must
verify suitability of the materials in accordance with the type of
is central with respect to the motor housing.
Filtering version only: install a section of a tube, long
enough to reach the connection ring on the motor
housing (Fig.1), onto the F deflector.
Mount motor housing J (Fig. 1) to the lattice girder with 4
large S screws (Fig. 3) so that the side with the electronic
and connection boxes are on the front part.
Connect the discharge tube.
Fix bracket K (Fig. 3-Fig. 4-Fig. 4.1), which supports the
electronic box and the connection box, to the motor
housing with 2 screws.
Insert the M commands box into apposite N sealing rail
(Fig. 4.2 – Fig. 4.3).
Note! The drawing shows a type of commands box. This
can be equipped with a number of different keys and leds
depending on the model possessed.
Connect to the domestic electric power.
Mount upper flue O onto the lattice girder with the 2 A
screws (Fig. 5).
Note: the upper flue is reversible. It is possible to install it
with air exit slit H (Fig. 5) upward (filtering version) or
downward (suction version) so as to be hidden when the
lower flue is mounted (in this case, however, the total
extension of the flues will be reduced).
Attention! Insert the flue carefully so as to avoid
damaging the electric cables and the commands box.
Mount lower flue P and fix it to the lower part of the motor
housing with two screws Q (Fig. 5)
Note: Do not tighten completely!
Attention! Insert the flue carefully so as not to avoid
damaging the electric cables and the commands box.
Mount spacer ring S (Fig. 5) or the mantel, when
Tighten screws Q (Fig. 5) with decision.
Remove the carbon filter holding frame and tighten
internal screw R (Fig. 4.3) that adjusts the position of the
commands box so that the keys extrude from the flue.
Block the position tightening the lock nut on the screw.
Remove central screw T (Fig. 5), placed between the
bulbs, temporarily and fix filter holder mask U (Fig. 5)
