MAINTENANCE AND CLEANING
Constant maintenance ensures the correct operation and efficiency of the appliance over time. Special attention should be paid to the metal grease-trapping filters and the charcoal filters. Frequent cleaning of the filters and their
supports will ensure that fats and grease do not accumulate on the range
hood, with the consequent risk of fire.
1. METAL GREASE-TRAPPING FILTERS
These trap the fat and grease particles suspended in the air, and therefore
should be washed every month in hot water and detergent, without bending them. Wait until they are completely dry before repositioning them.
7
To remove and replace these filters, see the instructions in point H1. This
operation should be performed at regular intervals. The metal filters could
be cleaned in a dishwasher.
2. CHARCOAL FILTERS
These trap the odours present in the stream of air that passes through
them. The air is purified by passing a number of times through the filters
and being recirculated into the kitchen. The charcoal filters cannot be
cleaned, and should be replaced on average every 3-4 months (according
to use). To replace the charcoal filters, see the instructions in point H2.
3. CLEANING THE OUTSIDE OF THE APPLIANCE
The ouside of the range hhod should be cleaned using a damp cloth and
neutral liquid detergent or denatured alcohol.
In case of fingerprint-less finish (fasteel) clean only with water and neutral
soap using clean with a soft cloth, rinse and wipe dry thoroughly. Do not
use products that contain abrasive substances, rough cloths or cloths specifically designed for cleaning steel. Using abrasive substances or rough
cloths will inevitably damage the finish of steel.
The steel surface will be irrevocably damaged if the instructions above are
not complied with.
Keep these instructions together with the instructions for use of your
hood.
The manufacturer accepts no liability for any damage caused by non-compliance with the instructions above.
4. CLEANING THE INSIDE OF THE APPLIANCE
The electrical parts or parts of the motor assembly inside the range hood
must not be cleaned using liquids or solvents.
