Specifications of your Cooker Hood
Congratulations on purchasing a Cooker Hood!
To fully enjoy using your appliance long into the future,
please firstly familiarise yourself with its specifications,
safety advice and operational instructions included in this
manual. You will also need this manual to ensure that your
Cooker Hood has been installed properly.
Your cooker hood can work either as an extraction fan or as
an air recirculator. Whichever mode you choose, you will
need to bear in mind that the extractor calls for ducting (not
included) to be worked from the exhaust of your fan, while
the recirculation function will require the installation of
carbon filters.
Please see the installation section of this manual for details.

Maintenance - Cleaning the Anti-grease Filters
on: Please Read this before installing & using.
Anti-Grease Grille
 Your cooker hood includes an anti-grease grille
which helps absorb vapour-suspended grease
particles to protect your kitchen & furniture from
greasy residues.
 The metal grille may become flammable if it
becomes saturated with greasy residue.

To prevent this fire hazard, the grille should be
cleaned regularly (depending on use) every 10-15
days and at least once a month in a dishwasher or in
hot water with normal washing-up detergent.
First remove the grille by pulling down on it. Undo the
side catches.
10
You can now clean the anti-grease filter grilles.
 Soak them for about one hour in hot water with a
grease-loosening detergent then rinse off thoroughly
with hot water.
 Repeat the process if needed. Refit the grease grille
once it has dried.
To clean the grease filter grilles in your dishwasher:
 Place the grease filter grilles in the dishwasher. Select the most
powerful washing programme and highest temperature.
 Repeat the process, if necessary.
 Refit the grease grilles when dry.
 PLEASE NOTE: DISCOLOURATION OF THE GREASE
FILTER CAN TAKE PLACE WHEN CLEANED IN A
DISHWASHER, ETC. Do not worry about the slight
discolouration of the grille – its performance won‟t
be affected.
Let the filter grilles dry thoroughly before refitting
them.
11
Maintenance – Changing the Light Bulb and Carbon Filter
a)
Changing the light bulb
 Before changing the light bulb, ensure that the appliance is not live (i.e., ensure
that you have switched it off at the wall switch).
 Remove the metal anti-grease filters and find the old bulb located in the light
fixture up inside the exposed canopy. Change the halogen bulb using only oliveshaped type with a G4 coupling, max. 20W.
* PLEASE NOTE - Defective bulbs should be replaced immediately.

Replace the metal anti-grease filters.
b) Installing / Changing the Carbon Filter.
 Your Cooker Hood uses a pair of CARBON FILTERS to purify the air for
the air recirculation function.
 You will find that the filters will attach to both sides of the fan motor
(please see figures at bottom of page).
 The active carbon filters must be replaced regularly, at least once every
three months, to allow normal operation.
 Before starting to fit the carbon filter, turn the omni-polar switch off
at the wall.
12
Changing the Carbon Filters
1) Press the handle of the metal grease filter towards the rear part of the unit
until it is released from the front housing, and remove it by pressing
downwards (Fig. 2 - above).
2) Remove the old carbon filters by twisting them anticlockwise until they unlatch
from the sides of the motor.
3) Place the new carbon filters (which have two fixing tongues), turning clockwise
so that the tongues latch onto the motor‟s sides. (Fig. 3)
4) Reposition the anti-grease metallic filter grilles.
Before installation and usage, read all the instructions and make sure that the
voltage (V) and the frequency (Hz) indicated on the identification plate (found
inside your Cooker Hood) and all the data inside the appliance are exactly the
same as the voltage and frequency in your home.
