Maintenance and cleaning
WARNING: Before cleaning any
part of the hood, switch the power
off at the mains.
Cleaning the air filter
In normal operation (1 to 2 hours daily), the
filters must be cleaned every 8 to 10 weeks.
If cleaning is not carried out in accordance
with the instructions, the accumulated
grease could, over time, become a fire risk.
The air filter is made of high-density
aluminium. Please do not use a corrosive
detergent on it. Keeping this filter clean will
keep the appliance operating correctly.
Please follow the guideline below.
1. Put the air filter into clean water at a
temperature of about 40˚C to 50˚C.
2. Pour the detergent on the air filter and
soak for approximately 3 minutes.
3. Wear gloves and gently clean it with a soft
Do not apply too much pressure
when cleaning the air filter as the
air filter is delicate and too much
pressure will cause damage to it.
Cleaning the hood
To protect the main body from corrosion
over a long period of time, the cooker hood
should be cleaned with hot water along with
a non corrosive detergent every two months.
Please do not use abrasive detergent; it will
damage the cosmetic surface.
Keep the motor and other parts
free from water, as this will cause
damage to the appliance.
The carbon filters must not be
exposed to heat.
WARNING: There is a fire risk if
cleaning is not carried out in
accordance with these
General cleaning. (Stainless steel)
Stainless steel is not adversely affected by
normal household use but because of its
reputation for durability, it is sometimes
assumed to be indestructible, and therefore
subjected to misuse or even abuse. Care
should be taken to avoid such ‘abnormal
Cleaning materials. (Stainless steel)
Do use:
• A moist lint free soft cloth or synthetic
• Soap, or mild liquid detergent.
• A mild window cleaner.
• Diluted ammonia in warm water.
• A nylon bristle brush.
• Cleaners labelled “Suitable for stainless
Do not use:
• A steam cleaner.
• Acid, alcohol, soda, chloride or spirit
based cleaners.
• Coarse abrasive cleaning powders.
• Metallic scourers, steel wool, metal
scrapers, or plastic scouring pads.
• Wire brushes or emery paper.
• So called “silver cleaners”.
Cleaning procedure
• Frequent cleaning is recommended rather
than an occasional aggressive clean.
• Routine cleaning will preserve the
corrosion resistance and the appearance
of the stainless steel for many years.
• Clean the stainless steel as often as
necessary (i.e. when it is noticeably dull or
dirty) and use the simplest cleaning
method that will effectively do the job.
• Use clean water, or a mild detergent
solution applied with a soft cloth or
sponge. Rinse well and wipe dry.
• Always wipe in the direction of the
brushed texture on the stainless steel.
• Periodically apply a fine film of dedicated
stainless steel cleaner or baby oil to the
canopy of the extractor hood to add lustre
and sparkle to the steel.
