Consult a qualified electrician if in any
The electrical safety of this
appliance can only be guaranteed
when continuity is complete between
the appliance and an effective earthing
system that complies with local and
national safety regulations. It is most
important that this basic safety
requirement is present and regularly
tested, and where there is in any doubt,
the household wiring system should be

Warning and Safety instructions
The appliance is only completely
isolated from the electricity supply
– It is switched off at the wall socket
and the plug withdrawn,
– The fuse from the fused spur
connection unit is withdrawn,
– The mains fuse is withdrawn, or
– The screw-out fuse is removed (in
countries where this is applicable).
Do not connect the appliance
to the mains electricity supply by
an extension lead.
Extension leads do not guarantee the
required safety of the appliance (e.g.
danger of overheating).
In countries where there are areas
which may be subject to
infestation by cockroaches or other vermin,
pay particular attention to keeping
the appliance and its surroundings in
a clean condition at all times. Any
damage which may be caused by
cockroaches or other vermin will not be
covered by the guarantee.
Never use an open flame
beneath the cooker hood. To
avoid the danger of fire, do not
flambé or grill over an open flame
under the cooker hood. When switched
on, the cooker hood could draw flames
into the filter. Fat particles drawn into
the cooker hood present a fire
When using the cooker hood over a
gas hob, ensure that any burners in use
are always covered by a pan. The
burner should be switched off before
taking a pan off the hob, even for
brief periods.
Regulate the flames so that they do
not extend beyond the base of the pan.
If flames are not covered by a pan
excessive heat can build up in the
cooker hood with the risk of damage to
the motor unit.
Always switch the cooker hood on when
a cooking zone is in use, otherwise
condensation may collect in the hood,
which could cause corrosion.
When cooking with oil or fat, chip
pans and deep fat fryers etc, do not
leave the pans unattended. Never leave
an open grill unattended when grilling.
Overheated oil and fat can ignite and
could set the cooker hood on fire.
Do not use the cooker hood without the
grease filters in place. This way you
will avoid the risk of grease and dirt
getting into the appliance and
hindering its smooth operation.
The grease filter should be
regularly cleaned. A saturated
filter is a fire hazard. See "Cleaning
and care”. For further information.
Do not use a steam-cleaner to
clean this appliance. Pressurised
steam could reach the electrical
components and cause a short circuit.
Never use spray cleaners directly
around the controls or buttons, this
could also cause damage to the
internal circuit board.
Warning and Safety instructions
Safety with children
This appliance is only intended for
use by adults who have read these
instructions it is not a toy! To avoid the
risk of injury, keep children well away,
and do not allow them to play with it or

understand the potential dangers
posed by it. They should be
supervised whenever you are
working in the kitchen.
The distance between the top of
the cooker/hob and the bottom of the
cooker hood canopy must measure at
least 365 mm, unless a greater
distance is specified by Luxair.
If more than one appliance is fitted
beneath the cooker hood, and they have
different minimum safety distances
to the cooker hood, select the greater
Please be aware that on
appliances with halogen lighting, the
lamps will get very hot during use and
remain hot for some time after
switching off. To safeguard against
burning, keep children well away from
the lamps at all times. For
instructions on changing bulbs,
please refer to maintenance sector
in this booklet.
Safety regulations prohibit the
fitting of a cooker hood over solid fuel
All ducting, pipe work and
fittings must be of non-flammable
material. These can be obtained from the
Luxair web site or from local builders'
Packaging e.g. cling film,
polystyrene and plastic wrappings must
be kept out of the reach of babies and
young children. Danger of suffocation.
Dispose of or recycle all packaging safely
as soon as possible.
The appliance must not be
connected to a chimney or vent
flue, which is in use. Neither should it
be connected to ducting, which
ventilates rooms with fireplaces.
If exhaust air is to be extracted into a
chimney or ventilation duct no longer
used for other purposes, seek advice.
Warning and Safety instructions
Using at the same time as other
heating appliances that depend on
the air from the room
In order to ensure safe operation, and
to prevent gases given off by the
heating appliances from being drawn
back into the room when the extractor
and the heater are in operation
simultaneously, an under pressure in the
room of 0.04 mbar (4 pa) is the
maximum permissible.
Warning - danger of toxic fumes
Great care should be taken when
using the cooker hood at the same
time and in the same room or area of
the house as another heating appliance,
which depends on the air in the room.
Such appliances include gas, oil, wood
or coal-fired boilers and heaters,
continuous flow or other water heaters,
gas hobs, cookers or ovens which draw
air in from the room and duct exhaust
gases out through a chimney or
extraction ducting.
When used in extraction mode, with or
without an external motor, the appliance
draws air in from the room in which it is
installed and from neighboring rooms. If
there is insufficient air, an
Under pressure will occur. The heating
appliance may be starved of oxygen,
impairing combustion.
Ventilation can be maintained by air
inlets, which cannot be blocked, in
windows, doors and outside wall vents,
or by other technical measures, such
as ensuring that the extractor can only
be switched on when the heating
appliance is switched off or vice-versa.
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
"Corgi" installer, must be sought.
Harmful gases could be drawn out of
the chimney or extraction ducting
back into the room, with potentially
fatal consequences.
Warning and Safety instruction
Important: To avoid the danger of toxic
fumes please observe the Warning
and Safety instructions. This is
especially crucial when using the
cooker hood at the same time as
another heating appliance, which
relies on air from the same room. The
cooker hood should be installed
according to local and national
building regulations. Seek approval
from the building inspector where
– Only use smooth pipes or flexible
hoses made from non-flammable
materials for extraction connection.
– All ducting, pipe work and fittings
must be of non-flammable materials.
– The exhaust ducting should be as
short and straight as possible.
– To ensure efficient air extraction, the
diameter of the exhaust ducting
should not be less than 125 mm.
If exhaust ducting with a diameter of
less than 150 mm, or if flat ducting is
used, the noise level of the cooker
hood will increase and extraction will
be less efficient.
Never reduce the diameter of the
ducting, e.g. where narrower ducting
has already been installed.
– Only use wide radius bends. Tight
bends reduce the air throughput of
the cooker hood.
– If the exhaust air is to be ducted into
a vent flue, the ducting must be
directed in the flow direction of the
Luxair will not exchange or repair
damaged hoods caused by incorrect
ducting being fitted, the minimum
ducting must not be smaller than
125mm. never use ducting previously
installed from your last extractor unit.
