Warning and Safety instructions
Using at the same time as other heating appliances that depend on the air
from the room
 Warning - danger of toxic fumes
Great care should be taken when using the rangehood 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 cooktops, 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
fitted, or in recirculation mode with a recirculation box installed
outside the room, the appliance draws air in from the room in
which it is installed and from neighbouring rooms.
If there is insufficient air, an underpressure will occur. The heating
appliance will be starved of oxygen, impairing combustion.
Harmful gases could be drawn out of the chimney or extraction
ducting back into the room, with potentially fatal consequences.
8
Warning and Safety instructions
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 rangehood and the heater are in operation
simultaneously, an underpressure in the room of 0.04 mbar (4 pa)
is the maximum permissible.
Ventilation can be maintained by air inlets which cannot be
blocked, in windows, doors or outside wall vents, or by other
technical measures, such as ensuring that the rangehood 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 qualified gas fitter (registered with an official gas safety body
in accordance with national safety regulations), must be sought.
If the rangehood is used in recirculation mode, where the air is
directed back into the room in which it is located, operating a
heating appliance which depends on the room air at the same time
is not hazardous.
9
Warning and Safety instructions
Correct use
 Never use an open flame beneath the rangehood. To avoid the
danger of fire, do not flambé or grill over an open flame.
When switched on, the rangehood could draw flames into the filter.
Fat deposits could ignite, presenting a fire hazard.
 The rangehood can become damaged when exposed to excessive
heat.
– When using the rangehood over a gas cooktop, 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 rangehood on when a cooking zone is in use,
otherwise condensation may collect in the rangehood, 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 rangehood on fire.
10
Warning and Safety instructions
 Do not use the rangehood 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 rangehood can get very hot during cooking due to heat rising
from the cooktop.
Do not touch the housing or the grease filters until the rangehood
has cooled down.
Correct installation
 Refer to the cooktop manufacturer's instructions as to whether a
rangehood may be operated above the cooktop.
 Safety regulations prohibit the fitting of a rangehood over solid
fuel stoves.
 Insufficient distance between the cooktop and the rangehood can
result in damage to the rangehood.
The minimum safety distances between the top of the cooktop and
the bottom of the rangehood given in the "Installation" section must
be maintained, unless the cooktop manufacturer states that a greater
distance is required.
If more than one cooking appliance is fitted beneath the rangehood,
and they have different minimum safety distances to the rangehood,
select the greater distance.
 The distances given in "Installation" must be observed when
fitting the rangehood.
11
Warning and Safety instructions
 All ducting, pipework and fittings must be of non-flammable
material. These can be obtained from builders' merchants.
 The appliance must not be connected to a chimney or vent flue
which is in current use for exhausting fumes from appliances burning
gas or other fuels. 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 professional advice.
Cleaning and care
 There is a risk of fire if cleaning is not carried out 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.
 In areas which may be subject to infestation by cockroaches or
other vermin, pay particular attention to keeping the machine 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 machine warranty.
Accessories
 Use only genuine original Miele spare parts. If spare parts or
accessories from other manufacturers are used, the warranty will be
invalidated, and Miele cannot accept liability.
12
Caring for the environment
Disposal of the packing
material
Disposing of your old
appliance
The transport and protective packaging
has been selected from materials which
are environmentally friendly for
disposal, and can normally 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. Ensure that any plastic
wrappings, bags etc. are disposed of
safely and kept out of the reach of
babies and young children. Danger of
suffocation.
Please dispose of it at your local
community waste collection / recycling
centre for electrical and electronic
appliances. You are also responsible for
deleting any personal data that may be
stored on the appliance prior to
disposal. Please ensure that your old
appliance poses no risk to children
while being stored prior to disposal.

Energy saving tips
This rangehood 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 rangehood
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
rangehood power level and therefore
benefit from reduced energy
consumption.
– Check the power level selected on
the rangehood. 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 are being produced, switch
to a high power level in good time.
This is more efficient than operating
the rangehood for longer to try to
capture cooking vapours which have
already been distributed throughout
the kitchen.
– Make sure that you switch the
rangehood 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
rangehood must be disconnected
from the power supply (see "Warning
and Safety instructions").
Housing
General
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 warm water with a
small amount of washing-up liquid
applied with a well wrung-out soft
sponge or cloth.
Do not use too much water when
cleaning the controls.
Water could penetrate into the
electronics and cause damage.
 After cleaning, 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. These will damage
the surface material.
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,
e.g. Original Miele ceramic and
stainless steel cooktop cleaner.
 To help prevent re-soiling, a
proprietary conditioning agent for
stainless steel (Original Miele Care
product for stainless steel) can also
be used.
Apply sparingly with a soft cloth
following the instructions on the
packaging.
Cleaning and care
Important for the controls
Do not leave soiling on the controls
for any length of time.
Otherwise they may suffer
discolouration or damage.
Remove any soiling immediately.
 Observe the general notes on
cleaning earlier in this section.
Do not use stainless steel cleaning
agents on the controls.
Grease filters
The re-usable metal grease filters in the
appliance remove solid particles
(grease, dust, etc.) from the kitchen
vapours, preventing soiling of the
rangehood.
 An oversaturated filter is a fire
hazard.
Grease filter cleaning intervals
The grease filters should be cleaned
regularly (at least every 3-4 weeks) to
avoid a build-up of grease.
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 cooktop below.
Make sure you hold the filter securely
at all times when handling it.
 To take out a grease filter, release the
locking clip on the filter, lower the
filter approx. 45°, unhook it at the
back and remove it.
21
Cleaning and care
Cleaning the grease filters by hand
After cleaning
 Clean the filters with a soft nylon
brush in a mild solution of hot water
and a small amount of washing-up
liquid. Do not use undiluted washing
up liquid.
 After cleaning, leave the filters to dry
on an absorbent surface before
refitting them.
Unsuitable cleaning agents
Unsuitable cleaning agents can cause
damage to the surface of the filters if
used regularly.
Do not use:
– cleaning agents containing descaling
agents,
 When removing the filters for
cleaning, also clean off any residues
of oil or fat from the now accessible
housing to prevent the risk of these
catching fire.
 Replace the grease filters, making
sure that the locking clips are facing
down towards the cooktop.
– powder cleaners or cream cleaners,
– aggressive all-purpose cleaning
agents or spray cleaners for grease,
– oven sprays.
Cleaning the grease filters in the
dishwasher
 Place the filters as upright as possible
in the lower basket, with the short
sides upright, ensuring the spray arm
is not obstructed.
 Use a proprietary household
dishwasher detergent.
 Select a dishwasher programme with
a wash temperature between 50 °C
and 65 °C.
Depending on the cleaning agent
used, cleaning the filters in a
dishwasher can cause permanent
discolouration to the surface.
However, this will not affect the
functioning of the filters in any way.
22
 If a grease filter is inadvertently
refitted upside down, insert a small
screwdriver blade into the slit to
disengage the clip.
Cleaning and care
NoSmell active charcoal filter
If the rangehood is connected for
recirculation, a charcoal filter must be
inserted in addition to the grease filters.
This is designed to absorb cooking
odours and is fitted in the canopy
above the grease filters.
Charcoal filters are available to order via
the Miele Webshop or directly from
Miele (see end of this booklet for
contact details). See "Technical data"
for the model number of the charcoal
filter.
When to change the NoSmell active
charcoal filter
 Always replace the charcoal filter
when it no longer absorbs kitchen
odours effectively.
It should, however, be replaced at
least every 6 months.
Disposing of the charcoal filter
 The used charcoal filter can be
disposed of with the normal
household waste.
Fitting and replacing a charcoal filter
 Before fitting or replacing the
charcoal filter, the grease filters must
first be taken out (see previous
section for instructions on how to do
this).
 Unwrap the charcoal filter from its
packaging.
 Insert the charcoal filter into the back
of the charcoal filter frame, then push
up into the frame at the front.
 Refit the grease filters.

Installation
Installation recommendations
Drilling diagram for wall
– When deciding on the safety distance mounting
between the cooktop and rangehood,
please note that a distance of 650
mm above electric cooktops may be
preferable to give more working
space under the rangehood.
 Please follow the directions given in
the installation instructions supplied
for drilling.
– Account should also be taken of the
height of the person who will be
using the rangehood most often.
They should have sufficient space to
work comfortably at the cooktop, and
be able to reach the rangehood
controls with ease.
– If positioned too high, extraction will
be inefficient.
– To achieve optimum vapour
extraction, the rangehood must be
positioned centrally over the cooktop,
not to the side.
– The cooktop should be no wider than
the rangehood and, if possible, it
should be narrower, especially for
safety distances greater than
750 mm.
– The installation area must be easily
accessible. The rangehood 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 rangehood.
30
 For pre-installation of a back wall
where the holes have to be predrilled, please refer to the drilling
distances in the drawing above
(screws  5 mm).
*The dimension for the middle wall
bracket is variable. It will depend on the
position of the wall vent and the socket.
It should be set as low as possible.
Connection for air extraction
 Before installation, it is important
to read the information given on the
following pages as well as the
"Appliance dimensions" and the
"Warning and Safety instructions" at
the beginning of this booklet. This is
particularly crucial when using the
rangehood at the same time as a
heating appliance that relies on
oxygen from the same room, which
could result in the build-up of toxic
fumes.
The rangehood should be installed
according to local and national
building regulations. Seek approval
from the building inspector where
necessary.
Only use smooth pipes or flexible
hoses made from non-flammable
materials for the extraction ducting.
– If flat ducting is being used, the
cross-sectional area 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.
– Ensure that all connections are
strong and airtight.
Remember that any constriction of
the airflow 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.
Highly flexible, concertina type
ducting material will greatly reduce
the performance of the rangehood.
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 greatest possible air
extraction with the lowest noise level,
please note the following:
– The diameter of the exhaust ducting
should not be less than 150 mm.
 If the exhaust air is to be ducted into
a vent flue, the ducting must be
directed in the flow direction of the
flue.
 When 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 rangehood.
31
Connection for air extraction
 If the exhaust ducting is to run
through rooms, ceiling space etc.
where 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.
Silencer
Condensate trap
To achieve even further reductions in
noise levels, a special silencer (optional
accessory) can be fitted in the ducting
system.
Air extraction mode
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 are available for
125 mm or 150 mm ducting.
 When installing a condensate trap,
ensure that it is positioned vertically
and, if possible, directly above the
exhaust socket.
The arrow on the housing indicates
the direction of airflow.
The condensate trap will be integrated
in rangehoods which are designed to be
connected to an external fan
(model......EXT).
32
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 .
Connection for air extraction
Recirculation mode
The silencer needs to be positioned
between the exhaust connection and
the directional unit . Ensure there is
adequate space in the tower for fitting
it.
Air extraction 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 connection inside
the rangehood . 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.
33
Electrical connection
All electrical work must be
undertaken by a suitably qualified
and competent person in strict
accordance with current national and
local safety and building code
regulations. 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.
The rangehood must be connected to a
suitably earthed socket (AC 230 V,
50 Hz).
For extra safety it is advisable to install
a residual current device (RCD) with a
trip current of 30 mA.
Connection of this appliance must be
made via a suitable isolator switch
which provides disconnection on all
poles and which complies with national
and local safety regulations. The
isolator switch should be easily
accessible after the appliance has been
built in.
If the mains socket is not accessible
after installation, an additional means of
disconnection must be provided for all
poles. There must be an all-pole
contact gap of 3 mm in the switch
(including switch, fuses and relays).
The connection data is given on the
data plate (See "After sales service").
Ensure that this data matches the
household mains supply.
