INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS
Before You Start...
1.
Read this manual carefully and completely.
2.
The cooker hoods conform to related appliances standards. Please check your local building codes for any
additional requirements.
3.
The appliance has been manufactured as class I, there fore earthed connection is necessary. The cooker hood
must be installed so that the plug is easily accessible.

1. Measure the floor to ceiling height. This hood
can be installed on walls between 8” and 9” tall.
2. Find the centre point of your opening. Mark a
plumb line through this point from ceiling to your
range/cook-top.
3. Check your range/cook-top User Manual for the
minimum distance above your cooking surface.
The minimum distance between any element or
flame height and the nearest combustible surface
is 61cm (24”).
4. Decided where the ductwork will run between
the hood and the outside. Short, straight duct runs
will provide the most air flow.
5. If a recirculating kit is necessary, you may
purchase one through your dealer.
Unpacking
Remove the packaging with the product in place. Cut off the packing ribbons and carefully cut open the packaging
(do not cut too deeply), remove the packaging. Check that the product is free from transport damage. Any damage
shall be reported imme diately to the carrier or retailer. Damage, faults and missing parts must be reported
immediately to the retailer
Installing the Ductwork
to roof cap
1. Plan where the ductwork will run between the hood and the outside. The
hoods exhaust vertically but can be ducted to the rear behind the chimney
duct through an outside wall or vertically up through the ceiling to the
roof. A short straight duct run will produce the most air flow. Length and
elbows will reduce the efficiency of the blower.
2. Install a roof or wall cap. Connect a 6” round metal duct to the cap and
work backwards toward the hood. Ensure joints are completely sealed
with duct tape.

prior to cooking and you leave it operating for 15 min utes after cooking.
2. Clean the surfaces of the cooker hood regularly using a non-abrasive detergent.
3. The anti-grease filters capture the grease particles sus pended in the air. They will accumulate grease and dirt
depending on the frequency of the use of your range/cook top.

CARE AND CLEANING
General
Regular maintenance is required to ensure that the
cooker hood functions properly. This is espe cially true
of the grease and charcoal filters.
Clean the fan and other surfaces of the cooker hood
regularly with a cloth dipped in denatured alcohol or a
non-abrasive liquid cleaner.
The charcoal filter cleans the circulating air in the
room. Such filters cannot be cleaned or recycled and
must be replaced at least every four months. The speed
at which the charcoal filter becomes saturated depends
on how often the fan is used, the type of food that is
cooked and how often the grease filter is cleaned.
To prevent the risk of fire and to ensure that the cooker
hood functions properly, the grease filter must always
be cleaned as instructed below when the display
indicates the need or at least every two months.
Cleaning the grease filter
Remove the flter from the cooker hood and clean it in a
solution of water and neutral cleaning liquid. Leave the
flter to soak in the solution for a while.
- Rinse thoroughly with hot water and leave the filter
to dry.
- The filter can also be cleaned in a dishwasher. The
color of the grease filter may change after a few
washes. This is normal.
NB:
If you clean the grease flter in the
dishwasher: load only the grease flter
and no other items as food particles from
dishes can fasten in the filter.
Replacing the charcoal filter (standard
hood)
Replace the charcoal filter (standard hood) as
follows:
Remove the grease filter.
Squeeze the clips on the charcoal filter a pull the
charcoal filter back to remove it.
Replacing the charcoal filter (for hood
with sloping surface)
1. Press the middle of the right edge of the glass cover
to open it
Emptying and cleaning the fat collector (For these fitted with a fat collector)
The fan is fitted with a fat collector that collects fat from the fan blades and fan housing.
1. Remove the grease filter and the charcoal filter (if fitted).
2. Remove the fat collector and clean it in warm water with washing up liquid. It can
also be cleaned in a dishwasher.
DO NOT let dirt build up on the hood
DO NOT use steel wool or steel brushes to clean the hood
DO NOT leave salt solutions, disinfectants, bleaches or cleaning compounds on
the hood for any length of time as they may damage the stainless steel. Rinse
after use with clean water and wipe dry with a clean cloth.
Replacing the bulbs
Depending on your model of hood, there are two possible types of lighting, halogen and LED. The illumination
is designed for use during cooking and not for prolonged general illumination of your kitchen. Prolonged use of
the lights may reduce the life time of the bulbs.
WARNING: Do not touch or change light bulbs while the hood is
operating. Wait until the bulb has cooled before removing.
Use only the same bulbs as the original specification. Re placement lights are available through the dealers.
Halogen and LED Lights.
With the grease filter removed, from inside the hood press the light fixture out of its mounting bracket. Unplug
the light from the wiring harness. Avoid direct contact between the lense and your hands.
Replace the damaged lamp by reversing the steps. Snap in place.
Replace the bulbs as follows:
1. Lift up and remove the light fitting with a screwdriver or other suitable tool.
2. Remove the blown halogen bulb (if the fan has 4 bulbs = 10W, 2 bulbs = 20W). Remember that the bulb can
be hot!
3. Insert the new halogen bulb.
If you touch the halogen bulb with your bare hands this may reduce its service life. Always use a glove or a cloth
to avoid direct contact.
NB:
The light is only meant for use during cooking and not for illuminating the surroundings for longer periods. If
the light is used for longer periods, this will considerably shorten the burn time of the bulbs.
