Description of functions
The following functions are available on
your ventilation hood, depending on the
model:
Vented mode
The cooking vapors are drawn in by the
ventilation hood. The air is then passed
via the edge extraction panel through
the grease filters, cleaned and then
directed outside.
Recirculation mode
The air is drawn in and passed via the
edge extraction panel through the
grease filters and then through two
charcoal filters. The cleaned air is then
recirculated back into the kitchen.
14
Description of functions
Con@ctivity 2.0 function
Automatic control
This hood features a communication
function which enables the automatic
control of the hood based on the
operational status of a Miele induction
cooktop.
The cooktop transmits information
about its operational status to the hood
using a radio signal.
– When a burner is turned on, the
cooktop lighting on the hood turns on
automatically. After a brief delay, the
ventilation hood fan also comes on.
– During cooking, the hood
automatically selects the fan level
based on the number of burners in
operation and their power levels.
– Once you have turned off the
cooktop, the fan and the lighting will
turn off automatically after a
predetermined delay.
Detailed information about this function
can be found under "Operation."
To enable the communication function,
the cooktop must be equipped with the
corresponding Con@ctivity 2.0 stick .
Please refer to the installation
instructions for the Con@ctivity 2.0
stick to determine whether connection
to your cooktop is possible.
There must be radio contact between
the cooktop and the hood for you to be
able to use the Con@ctivity 2.0 function
(see "Activating Con@ctivity 2.0").

2.0").
See "Cooking without Con@ctivity 2.0"
for information on manually operating
the hood.
Cooking with Con@ctivity 2.0
(Automatic mode)
 Turn on a burner to the desired power
setting.
Overhead cooktop lighting.
After a few seconds, the fan will come
on, briefly operating at power level 2
before immediately switching to level 1.
The hood selects the fan level
automatically during cooking.
This level is determined by the total
output of the cooktop, i.e. the number
of burners in operation and the power
settings selected.
 If you select a higher power setting
on the cooktop or switch on multiple
burners, the hood will switch to a
higher fan level.
 If you select a lower power setting on
the cooktop or turn off a burner, the
hood will accordingly switch to a
lower fan level.
Examples for fan levels 1 to 4
18
Reaction time
Changing the power setting on the
cooktop does not lead to an immediate
increase or decrease in cooking vapors.
For this reason, the hood reacts with a
slight delay.
Delays can also result from the fact that
the cooktop transmits the information to
the hood in intervals.
The reaction time can vary from a few
seconds to a couple of minutes.
Operation (Automatic mode)
Cooking process
Deactivation
 If, for example, you switch on a
burner at the highest power setting to
heat cookware in preparation for
searing and then reduce the power
level after approx. 60 to 90 seconds,
a cooking process is recognized.
 Turn off all burners.
The hood turns on automatically and,
after the cooktop power level has been
reduced, switches back to fan level 3,
where it remains for approx. 5 minutes.
After this, the fan level is once again
determined by the Con@ctivity function.
 You can also manually select a
different fan level before then.
Over the next few minutes, the
ventilation hood fan setting will
decrease one level at a time until the
hood eventually turns off.
This helps to neutralize any lingering
vapors and odors in the air.
– From the intensive setting, the fan
immediately switches to level 3.
– If the fan is operating at level 3, it will
switch to level 2 after approx. 1
minute.
– From level 2, the fan switches to level
1 after 2 minutes.
– After 2 minutes at level 1, the fan
automatically turns off.
– After another 30 seconds, the
overhead cooktop lighting turns off.
The cooking process is now finished.

Energy-saving tips
This hood operates in a very efficient
and energy-saving manner. The
following will help you to save even
more energy when using it:
– Clean or change the filters at regular
intervals. Heavily soiled filters reduce
performance, increase the risk of fire
and are unhygienic.
– Ensure that there is sufficient
ventilation in the kitchen when
cooking. If there is insufficient air flow
during vented mode, the hood
cannot operate efficiently, causing
increased operating noise levels.
– Use the Con@ctivity function. The
ventilation hood will switch on and off
automatically at the optimum power
level for the cooking you are doing,
which ensures low energy
consumption.
– If you are operating the ventilation
hood manually, please note the
following:
– Check the power level selected on
the hood. A lower power level is
generally sufficient for the majority
of cooking. Only use the intensive
setting when necessary.
– When a large volume of cooking
vapors are being produced, switch
to a high power level in good time.
This is more efficient than
operating the hood for longer to try
to capture cooking vapors that
have already been distributed
throughout the kitchen.
– Make sure that you switch the
ventilation hood off after use.
If cooking vapors and odors still
need to be removed from the
kitchen air after cooking, use the
coast-down function. The fan will
switch off automatically after the
selected coast-down time.

 Glass surfaces can be cleaned using
a cleaning agent specifically
designed for glass.
Cleaning and care
Important for the controls
Do not leave dirt and debris on the
buttons for any length of time.
Otherwise they may become
discolored or damaged.
Remove any dirt or debris
immediately.
 Observe the general cleaning
instructions contained in this chapter.
Do not use a stainless steel cleaner
to clean the control buttons.
Grease filters and edge
extraction panel
The edge extraction panel and the
reusable metal grease filters in the
appliance remove solid particles
(grease, dust, etc.) from the kitchen
vapors, preventing soiling of the hood.
 A dirty filter is a fire hazard!
Cleaning intervals
Grease which has collected in the
ventilation hood hardens over time and
makes cleaning more difficult. It is
therefore recommended that the edge
extraction panel and the grease filters
should be cleaned regularly (at least
every 3–4 weeks) to avoid a build-up of
grease.
Clean the edge extraction panels and
grease filter immediately if the grease
filter symbol  on the filter saturation
indicator lights up.
 You can adjust the interval of the filter
saturation counter to match your
cooking habits (see "Operation").
27
Cleaning and care
Removing the panel and grease
filters
The panel and grease filter can fall
out when you are handling them.
This can result in damage.
Make sure you hold the panel and
the grease filters securely at all times
when handling them.
 Open the grease filter locking clamp
and remove the grease filter.
 Hold the panel with one hand and
release the lock with the other hand.
Swivel the panel down.
 Lift the panel upwards somewhat,
and then swivel it forwards.
28
Cleaning and care
Cleaning the panel by hand
 Follow the instructions under
"Housing."
Cleaning the grease filters by hand
 Clean the filters with a soft nylon

– Abrasive powders or abrasive liquids
Cleaning the panel and the grease
filters in the dishwasher
 Place the panel and grease filters
upright or slightly inclined in the lower
basket. Ensure the spray arm is not
obstructed.
 Use a commonly available household
dishwashing detergent.
 In a Miele dishwasher use the
"Normal" program.
Depending on the detergent used,
cleaning the filters in a dishwasher
may cause the inside filter surfaces to
become discolored. However, this will
not affect the functioning of the grease
filters in any way.
– Aggressive all-purpose cleaners and
degreaser sprays
– Oven sprays
29
Cleaning and care
After cleaning
 After cleaning, leave the filters on an
absorbent surface to dry.
 When removing the panel and filters
for cleaning, also clean off any
accessible oil or grease buildup from
the housing. Doing so will prevent a
fire hazard.
 Reinstall the grease filters. When
inserting the filters, make sure that
the locking clip is facing down.
 If the filters have been installed
incorrectly, you can insert a small
screwdriver into the slit to disengage
the locking clip.

Installation
Installation recommendations
– Please note that the greater the
distance from the cooktop, the less
effective the hood is at drawing in the
cooking vapors.
– To achieve optimum vapor extraction,
the ventilation system must be
centered over the cooktop, not to the
side or behind.
– The cooktop should be no wider than
the hood. Preferably, it should be
narrower for better extraction.
– The mounting area must be easily
accessible. The ventilation hood
should be easy to reach and
disassemble in case a service call is
necessary. This should be taken into
consideration when planning the
position of cabinetry, shelves,
ceilings or decorative elements in the
vicinity of the ventilation hood.
39
Air venting
WARNING: Danger of toxic fumes.
Gas cooking appliances release
carbon monoxide that can be
harmful or fatal if inhaled.
To reduce the risk of fire and to
properly exhaust air, the exhaust
gases extracted by the hood should
be vented outside of the building
only.
Do not vent exhaust air into spaces
within walls or ceilings or in attics,
crawl spaces or garages.
To reduce the risk of fire, only use
metal ductwork.
Please read and follow the
"IMPORTANT SAFETY
INSTRUCTIONS" to reduce the risk
of personal injury. Follow all local
building codes when installing the
hood.
Only use smooth pipes or flexible
duct hoses made from noncombustible materials for exhaust
ductwork.
To achieve the greatest possible air
extraction with the lowest noise levels,
please note the following:
– The diameter of the exhaust duct
should not be less than 6" (150 mm).
– If flat exhaust ducts are used, the
cross section should not be smaller
than that of the exhaust connector.
– The exhaust duct should be as short
and straight as possible.
– If elbows are needed, make sure they
have a large radius.
– The exhaust duct itself must not be
kinked or compressed.
40
– Make sure that all connections are
secure and airtight.
Remember that any constriction of
the airflow will reduce extraction
performance and increase operating
noise.
 If the exhaust duct is to be routed
through an outside wall, we
recommend installing a telescopic
wall vent or a rooftop vent (available
as an optional accessory).
 If the exhaust air is conveyed into an
exhaust air chimney, the inlet
connector must face the flow
direction.
 When installing the exhaust duct
horizontally, a minimum slope of ¹/
₈ inch per foot must be maintained to
prevent condensate from flowing into
the ventilation hood.
 If the exhaust duct is to be routed
through cool rooms, ceilings, etc., the
temperatures in these different areas
may differ greatly. Therefore water
condensation must be considered
and the exhaust duct will need to be
insulated.
Air venting
Reducing Collar
(optional accessory)
If you would like to reduce the
environmental impact of your ventilation
system by limiting the CFM output the
Reducing Collar can be installed. It
reduces the air flow to less than
400 CFM. Check local building codes
for max. CFM requirements.
 Push the Reducing Collar on the
exhaust port of the blower.
 Push the exhaust hose over it.
 Secure both with a hose clamp.
41
