Safety precautions
The appliance corresponds to recognised technology standards
and the relevant safety regulations. Proper use of the appliance is
however essential to avoid damage and accidents. Please therefore follow the precautions given in these operating instructions.
In accordance with the requirements of IEC 60335-1:
䡲
This appliance is not intended for use by persons (including children) with
reduced physical, sensory or mental capabilities, or lack of experience and
knowledge, unless supervised or unless they have been given instruction
concerning the use of the appliance by a person responsible for their
safety.
Before using for the first time
䡲
The appliance must be installed and connected up to the electricity supply
according to the separate installation instructions. The necessary work
should be carried out by a qualified fitter or electrician.
䡲
Dispose of the packaging material in accordance with local regulations.
5
… Safety precautions
Correct use
䡲
The appliance is designed for use in the home for extracting cooking fumes
and smells from above the cooking surface.
䡲
Any repairs, modifications or manipulations to the appliance, especially
any electrically live parts, should only be carried out by the manufacturer,
its Customer Services or similarly qualified persons. Repairs if carried out
incorrectly may cause serious injury, damage to the appliance and fittings,
as well as affect the functioning of the appliance. If the appliance is not
working properly or in case of a repair order, follow the instructions given
in the 'Repair service' section. Please contact our Customer Services if
necessary.
䡲
Use original spare parts only.
䡲
Retain these operating instructions for future reference. If you sell or pass
the appliance on to a third party, please ensure these operating instructions, together with the installation instructions, accompany the appliance.
In this way, the new owner can inform themselves about how to use the
appliance correctly and read the pertinent safety precautions.
Children in the home
䡲
Packaging material e.g. plastic and polystyrene can be dangerous for children. Danger of suffocation! Please keep packaging material away from
children.
䡲
The appliance is designed for use by adults who are familiar with these operating instructions. Children are often unable to recognise the danger of
electrical appliances. Ensure proper supervision and do not allow children
to play with the appliance – there is a danger that children can hurt
themselves.
6
… Safety precautions
Note on use
䡲
If the appliance is visibly damaged, do not use it. Contact our Customer
Services.
䡲
If the appliance is not operating properly, disconnect it from the electricity
supply immediately.
䡲
Caution: Accessible parts may become hot when used with cooking
appliances.
䡲
Do not flambé food underneath the hood as the grease filters if laden with
grease could catch fire.
䡲
If frying on the cooking surface, do not leave the frying appliance unattended. The cooking oil in the frying appliance could overheat and catch fire.
Constantly monitor the temperature of the cooking oil, keeping it below the
temperature at which it can catch fire. Change the cooking oil regularly –
dirty oil catches fire more easily than clean oil.
䡲
Clean the filters regularly. Failure to do so can increase the fire hazard due
to the build-up of grease in the grease filter.
䡲
Do not operate the individual cooking zones of the cooking surface without
a pan on them or with an empty pan on them so as to avoid damaging the
appliance or the kitchen fittings through a build-up of heat. Avoid open fires
with oil, gas, wood and coal fired cookers.
䡲
Ensure there is adequate ventilation when the extraction fan is on so as to
avoid creating a disturbing underpressure in the kitchen and to achieve optimal air extraction.
䡲
Avoid a cross-current of air, which could blow the cooking vapours over
the cooking area.
7
… Safety precautions
䡲
If another appliance – fuelled by gas or other fuels – is being used at the
same time, ensure that there is a sufficient supply of fresh air. This does
not apply to air recirculation units.
䡲
With the simultaneous operation of firing (e.g. wood, gas, oil or coal-fired
heating systems), safe operation is only possible providing a room negative pressure of 4 Pa (0.04 mbar) is not exceeded at the location of the appliance. Risk of toxic fumes! An adequate flow of fresh air must be
guaranteed, e.g. via non-closable openings in doors and windows and
combined with ventilation wall bricks for incoming and exhaust air or by
other technical means.
䡲
When carrying out maintenance work on the appliance, including replacing
the light bulb, cut off the electricity supply to the appliance (remove the
screw fuse from the holder or switch the circuit breaker off, or disconnect
from the mains supply).
䡲
When cleaning the appliance make sure no water gets inside the appliance. Use a moderately damp cloth. Do not spray the inside or outside of
the appliance with water. Do not use a steam cleaner. If water gets inside
the appliance, it can cause damage.
8
Appliance description
The appliance is designed tor use in the home for extracting cooking fumes
and smells from the cooking area. The appliance is based on a completely
new functional concept whereby more cooking fumes can be removed with
significantly less air being extracted. The grease particles in the extracted air
are trapped very efficiently in the combi filters and metal grease filters.
The appliance can be used in extraction or recirculation mode.
Extraction mode
The cooking fumes and smells above the cooking area are removed by an
extractor fan. The extracted air is filtered through the combi filters and metal
grease filters and passed through a pipe with an integrated non-return valve
and then through an air duct to the outside.
When the appliance is in use, ensure that there is a sufficient supply
of fresh air to replace the air that is being extracted.
Recirculation mode
The cooking fumes and smells above the cooking area after being filtered
through the combi filters and metal grease filters are passed through an activated charcoal filter. The filtered air is then circulated back into the room
through the side openings.
If activated charcoal filters are not supplied with the appliance, these
should be ordered and installed before using the appliance. Furthermore, the saturation indicator for the activated charcoal filters must
also be activated.
