Warning and Safety instructions
Using at the same time as another heating appliance that depends on the air
from the room
 Danger of toxic fumes!
Great care should be taken when using the cooker hood in the
same room or the same area of the house at the same time as
another heating appliance that depends on the air from the room.
Such heating appliances draw in air from the room and duct
exhaust gases out to the open air through a chimney or extraction
ducting. They include gas, oil, wood and coal-fired boilers and
heaters, continuous flow or other water heaters, gas hobs and
ovens.
The cooker hood draws in air from the kitchen and from
neighbouring rooms. This applies to the following modes of
operation:
- extraction mode,
- extraction mode with an external motor,
- recirculation mode with a recirculation box installed outside the
room.
If there is insufficient air, an underpressure will occur. The heating
appliance may be starved of oxygen. This impairs combustion.
Harmful gases could be drawn from the chimney or extraction
ducting back into the room.
Risk of death!
8
Warning and Safety instructions
In order to ensure safe operation and to prevent gases given off by
the heating appliance from being drawn back into the room, when
the cooker hood and the heater are both operated simultaneously,
an underpressure in the room of 0.04 mbar (4 Pa) is the maximum
permissible.
Sufficient ventilation can be maintained by air inlets which cannot
be blocked, e.g. in windows, doors and outside wall vents. The
diameter of the inlet openings must enable sufficient ventilation. A
ventilation brick alone is not generally sufficient to ensure safe
ventilation.
The overall ventilation condition of the dwelling must be taken into
account. If in any doubt, the advice of a competent builder, or for
gas, a qualified gas fitter should be sought.
If the cooker hood is being operated in recirculation mode,
whereby the air is redirected into the room in which it is installed,
the above restrictions do not apply.
9
Warning and Safety instructions
Correct use
 Never use a naked flame beneath the cooker hood. To avoid the
danger of fire, do not flambé or grill over a naked flame.
When switched on, the cooker hood could draw flames into the filter.
Fat deposits could ignite, presenting a fire hazard.
 The cooker hood can become damaged when exposed to
excessive heat.
– When using the cooker hood over a gas hob, ensure that any
burners in use are always covered by a pan. Switch the cooking
zone off when a pan is removed, even for a short time.
– Select a pan which is suitable for the size of the burner.
– Regulate the flame so that it does not burn up the sides of the
pan.
– Avoid overheating the pan (e.g. when cooking with a wok).
 Always switch the cooker hood on when a cooking zone is in use,
otherwise condensation may collect in the hood, which could cause
corrosion.
 Overheated oil and fat can ignite, causing fire damage to the
cooker hood.
When cooking with oil or fat, chip pans and deep fat fryers etc, do
not leave the pans unattended. Similarly, never leave an open grill
unattended when grilling.
10
Warning and Safety instructions
 Do not use the cooker hood without the filters in place. This way
you will avoid the risk of grease and dirt getting into the appliance
and hindering its smooth operation.
 There is a risk of fire if the cooker hood is not cleaned as
described in these operating instructions.
 The cooker hood can get very hot during cooking due to heat
rising from the hob.
Do not touch the housing or the grease filters until the cooker hood
has cooled down.
Correct installation
 Refer to the cooker or hob manufacturer's instructions as to
whether a cooker hood may be operated above the cooker/hob.
 Safety regulations prohibit the fitting of a cooker hood over solid
fuel stoves.
 An insufficient safety distance between the hob and the cooker
hood can result in damage to the cooker hood.
The minimum safety distances between the top of the cooker or hob
and the bottom of the cooker hood given in the "Installation" section
of this booklet must be maintained, unless the hob manufacturer
states that a greater safety distance is required.
If more than one cooking appliance is fitted beneath the cooker
hood, and they have different minimum safety distances to the
cooker hood, select the greater distance.
 The distances given in "Installation" must be observed when
fitting the cooker hood.
11
Warning and Safety instructions
 Exhaust ducting must be of non-inflammable material. Suitable
material is available from Miele specialist dealers or the Miele Spares
Dept.
 The appliance must not be connected to a chimney or flue which
is in use. Neither should it be connected to ducting which ventilates
rooms with fireplaces.
 If exhaust air is to be extracted into a chimney or ventilation duct
no longer used for other purposes, seek professional advice.
Cleaning and care
 Do not use a steam cleaning appliance to clean this appliance.
The steam could reach electrical components and cause a short
circuit.
 You could injure yourself on the open vapour canopy. Only open it
when necessary.
Accessories
 Only use genuine original Miele accessories and spare parts with
this appliance. Using accessories or spare parts from other
manufacturers will invalidate the warranty and Miele cannot accept
liability.
12
Caring for the environment
Disposal of the packing
material
Disposing of your old
appliance
The packaging is designed to protect
the appliance from damage during
transportation. The packaging materials
used are selected from materials which
are environmentally friendly for disposal
and should be recycled.
Electrical and electronic appliances
often contain valuable materials. They
also contain specific materials,
compounds and components, which
were essential for their correct function
and safety. These could be hazardous
to human health and to the environment
if disposed of with your domestic waste
or if handled incorrectly. Please do not,
therefore, dispose of your old appliance
with your household waste.
Recycling the packaging reduces the
use of raw materials in the
manufacturing process and also
reduces the amount of waste in landfill
sites.
Please dispose of it at your local
community waste collection / recycling
centre for electrical and electronic
appliances, or contact your dealer or
Miele for advice. You are also
responsible (by law, depending on
country) for deleting any personal data
that may be stored on the appliance
being disposed of. Please ensure that
your old appliance poses no risk to
children while being stored prior to
disposal.
13
Modes of operation
Depending on the model of the cooker
hood, the following options are
available:
Extraction mode
The air is drawn in and cleaned by the
grease filter and directed outside.
Non-return flap
The non-return flap is designed to
prevent the exchange of room and
outside air taking place when the
cooker hood is switched off.
The flap is closed when the cooker
hood is switched off.
When the cooker hood is switched on,
the non-return flap opens for the
cooking vapours to be blown directly
outside.
If the on-site ventilation system does
not have a non-return flap, the nonreturn flap supplied must be fitted in the
exhaust socket in the motor unit.
14
Recirculation mode
Recirculation mode cooker hoods
require charcoal filters. These are
available as optional accessories: see
"Technical Data".
The air is drawn in and cleaned first by
the grease filter and then by a charcoal
filter. The cleaned air is then
recirculated back into the kitchen.
Modes of operation
Con@ctivity 2.0 function
Automatic control
The cooker hood has a communication
facility which enables the automatic
operation of the cooker hood
depending on the operational state of
the hob.
The hob transmits information about its
operational status via a wireless signal
to the cooker hood.
– When the hob is switched on, the
hob lighting comes on independently
and then after a short time the fan
also comes on.
– During cooking the cooker hood
automatically sets the power level
according to the number of cooking
zones in operation and their power
levels.
– After switching the hob off the fan
and the hob lighting will switch off
automatically after a specified period
of time.
See "Operation" for detailed information
about this function.
To make use of the communication
facility the hob must be fitted with a
Con@ctivity 2.0 Stick .
Refer to the installation instructions for
the Con@ctivity 2.0 Stick to check
whether it is compatible with your hob.
To use the Con@ctivity 2.0 function, a
wireless connection must be
established between the hob and the
cooker hood (see "Activating
Con@ctivity 2.0").

Operation (Automatic mode)
When Con@ctivity 2.0 is activated, the
cooker hood always works in automatic
mode (see "Activating Con@ctivity
2.0").
To operate the cooker hood manually,
see "Cooking without Con@ctivity 2.0".
Cooking with Con@ctivity 2.0
(Automatic mode)
 Switch a cooking zone on at the
power level you want.
The hob lighting will come on.
After a few seconds the fan will come
on, first at power level 2, then it will
switch immediately to power level 1.
The cooker hood selects the power
level automatically during cooking.
This is determined by the total output of
the hob, i.e, the number of cooking
zones in operation and the power levels
selected.
 If you select a higher power level or
are using several cooking zones, the
cooker hood will switch to a higher
power level.
 When you reduce the power level or
the number of cooking zones on the
hob, the cooker hood power level is
also reduced.
Examples for power levels 1 to 4
18
Reaction time
The cooker hood reacts with a slight
delay because altering the power level
on the hob does not immediately result
in a reduction or increase in cooking
vapours.
Because the hob transmits the
information to the cooker hood at
intervals, this can also cause delays.
The reaction can vary from a few
seconds to a couple of minutes.
Operation (Automatic mode)
Cooking process
Switching off
 If for example you switch on a
cooking zone at the highest power
level to heat a pan for frying and
reduce the power level after approx.
60 to 90 seconds*, a cooking process
is recognised (*60 seconds to 5
minutes for a HiLight hob).
 Switch off all cooking zones.
The cooker hood switches itself on and
when the hob power level has been
reduced, the hood switches to power
level 3 and remains at that level for
approx. 5 minutes.
– From the intensive setting, the fan
switches immediately to level 3.
After that the cooker hood power level
is determined automatically by the
Con@ctivity function.
 You can select another power level
manually before then.
The cooker hood fan will reduce its
power level over the next few minutes
and will eventually switch itself off.
This helps to neutralise any lingering
vapours and odours in the air.
– 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
switches itself off.
– After another 30 seconds, the hob
lighting switches off.
The cooking process is then finished.

Energy saving tips
This cooker hood operates very
efficiently and economically. The
following will help you to save even
more energy when using it:
– Ensure that there is sufficient
ventilation in the kitchen when
cooking. In extraction mode, if there
is insufficient air flow the cooker
hood cannot operate efficiently and
this causes increased operating noise
levels.
– Always cook with the lowest possible
setting. This produces fewer cooking
vapours, so you can use a lower
cooker hood power level and
therefore benefit from reduced
energy consumption.
– Clean or change the filters at regular
intervals. Heavily soiled filters reduce
performance, increase the risk of fire
and are unhygienic.
– Use the Con@ctivity function. The
cooker 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 cooker hood
manually, please note the following:
– Check the power level selected on
the cooker hood. A low power
level is usually sufficient. Only use
the Booster setting when
necessary.
– When a large volume of cooking
vapours are being produced,
switch to a high power level in
good time. This is more efficient
than operating the cooker hood for
longer to try to capture cooking
vapours which have already been
distributed throughout the kitchen.
– Make sure that you switch the
cooker hood off after use.
If cooking vapours and odours still
need to be removed from the
kitchen air after cooking, use the
run-on function. The fan will switch
off automatically after the selected
run-on time.
26
Cleaning and care
 Before proceeding with any
maintenance or cleaning task, the
cooker hood must be disconnected
from the power supply, see "Warning
and safety instructions".

27
Cleaning and care
Grease filters and panel for
edge extraction
The edge extraction panel and the reusable metal grease filter in the
appliance remove solid particles
(grease, dust, etc.) from the kitchen
vapours, preventing soiling of the
cooker hood.
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 filter securely at all times
when handling them.
 An oversaturated filter is a fire
hazard.
Cleaning interval
The edge extraction panel should be
cleaned regularly (at least every 3 - 4
weeks) to avoid a build-up of grease.
The operating hours counter will remind
you to clean the edge extraction panel
and the grease filter regularly via the
grease filter symbol  which will light
up.
 You can set the operating hours
counter interval to suit the type of
cooking you do (see "Operation").
 Pull the panel out of the holder at the
bottom, press it back a little at the
top , then unhook it and carefully lift it
out.
 Release the locking clip on the
grease filter, allow it to swing out
towards you slightly, then unhook it
and take it out.
28
Cleaning and care
Removing the drip tray
Unsuitable cleaning agents
Condensate collects in the drip tray
underneath the grease filter. This tray
can be removed for cleaning.
Unsuitable cleaning agents can cause
damage to the surface of the filters if
used regularly.
Do not use:
– cleaning agents containing descaling
agents
– powder cleaners, cream cleaners
– aggressive multi-purpose cleaning
agents or spray cleaners for grease
– oven sprays
 After taking the grease filter out, hold
the drip tray in the middle and pull it
slightly upwards and then carefully
pull it out towards you.
 Pour any condensate away.
Cleaning the panel by hand
 Follow the instructions under
"Housing".
Cleaning the grease filter and the
drip tray by hand
 Clean the grease filter and the drip
tray with a soft nylon brush in a mild
solution of hot water and a little
washing-up liquid. Do not use "neat"
washing-up liquid.
Cleaning the grease filter and the
drip tray in a dishwasher
 Place the grease filter and the drip
tray upright or slightly inclined in the
lower basket, ensuring the spray arm
is not obstructed.
 Use a standard household
dishwasher detergent.
 Select a dishwasher programme with
a wash temperature between 50°C
and 65°C.
Depending on the cleaning agent
used, cleaning the filter in a
dishwasher can cause permanent
discolouration to internal surfaces of
the filter. However, this will not affect
the functioning of the filter in any way.
29
Cleaning and care
After cleaning
 After cleaning, leave the filter to dry
on an absorbent surface before
replacing it.
 When removing the panel and grease
filter for cleaning, also clean off any
residues of oil or fat from the now
accessible parts of the casing to
prevent the risk of these catching fire.
 Replace the drip tray.
 Replace the grease filter, making sure
that the locking clip is facing
outwards.
 Hook the panel in at the top and then
push it into position at the bottom.
Resetting the grease filter operating
hours counter
After cleaning, the operating hours
counter needs to be re-set.
 Whilst the fan is switched on, press
the operating hours control  for
approx. 3 seconds, until only the 1 is
flashing.
 If the grease filter is inadvertently
replaced the wrong way round, insert
a small screwdriver blade into the slit

Installation
Installation recommendations
– Account should also be taken of the
height of the person who will be
using the hood most often. They
should have sufficient space to work
comfortably at the hob, and be able
to reach the hood controls with ease.
Drilling diagram for wall
mounting
 Please follow the directions given in
the installation instructions supplied
for drilling.
– Please be aware that if positioned too
high, extraction will be inefficient.
– To achieve optimum vapour
extraction, the cooker hood must be
positioned centrally over the hob, not
to the side.
– The hob should be no wider than the
cooker hood, and if possible, it
should be narrower.
– The installation area must be easily
accessible. The cooker hood should
be easily accessible and easy to
dismantle in the event that service is
required. This should be taken into
consideration when planning the
position of cupboards, shelves,
ceilings or features in the vicinity of
the cooker hood.
 For pre-installation of a back wall
where the holes have to be predrilled, please refer to the drilling
distances in the drawing above
(screws  5 mm).
38
Connection for air extraction
 If the cooker hood is used at the
same time as a heating appliance
that relies on oxygen from the same
room, there is a risk in certain
circumstances of toxic fumes
building up.
It is essential that the "Warning and
Safety" instructions are observed.
The cooker hood should be installed
according to local and national
building regulations. Seek approval
from the building inspector where
necessary.
Use smooth or flexible ducting made
from approved non-flammable
materials for exhaust ducting.
To achieve the most efficient air
extraction with the lowest noise levels,
please note the following:
– The diameter of the exhaust ducting
should not be less than 150 mm.
– If flat ducting is being used, the cross
section must not be smaller than the
cross sectional area of the exhaust
connection.
– The exhaust ducting should be as
short and straight as possible.
 If the exhaust is ducted through an
outside wall, a telescopic wall vent or
a roof vent (available as an optional
accessory) is recommended.
 If the exhaust air is to be ducted into
a flue, the ducting must be directed in
the flow direction of the flue.
 When ducting is horizontal it must be
laid to slope away at at least 1 cm per
metre. This is to ensure that
condensate cannot drain back into
the appliance.
 If the exhaust ducting is to run
through rooms, ceiling space etc.
where there may be great variations
in temperature between the different
areas, the problem of condensation
will need to be addressed. The
exhaust ducting will need to be
suitably insulated.
– Only use wide radius bends.
– The exhaust duct must not be kinked
or compressed.
– Ensure that all connections are
strong and airtight.
Remember that any constriction of
the air flow will reduce extraction
performance and increase operating
noise.
39
Connection for air extraction
Condensate trap
In addition to insulating the exhaust
ducting, we recommend that a suitable
condensate trap is also installed to
collect and evaporate any condensate
which may occur.
Condensate traps for 125 mm or 150
mm ducting are available as optional
accessories.
Silencer
To achieve even further reductions in
noise levels, a special silencer (optional
accessory) can be fitted in the ducting
system.
Extraction mode
A condensate trap can only be fitted in
extraction ducting which is directed
upwards out of the cooker hood.
 When installing a condensate trap,
ensure that it is positioned vertically
and as closely as possible above the
exhaust socket.
The arrow on the housing indicates
the direction of air-flow.
40
The silencer not only reduces noise
from the motor outside the house, but
also sounds from outside (e.g. traffic
noise). For this reason the silencer must
be positioned as close as possible to
the ducting exit .
Electrical connection
Installation, repairs and other work
by unqualified persons could be
dangerous. The manufacturer cannot
be held liable for unauthorised work.
All electrical work should be
undertaken by a suitably qualified
and competent person in strict
accordance with current national and
local safety and building regulations.
The connection data is given on the
data plate (See "After sales service").
Ensure that this data matches the
voltage and frequency of the household
mains supply.
This cooker hood must only be
connected to a properly installed
electrical circuit.
The electrical installation must comply
with national regulations (BS 7671 in
the UK).
For extra safety, it is advisable to
protect the appliance with a suitable
residual current device (RCD) with a trip
range of 30 mA (DIN VDE 0664).
It is advisable to connect this appliance
via a suitable plug and socket to make
it easy to disconnect for servicing
purposes. The socket and switch must
be easily accessible after the appliance
has been installed.
Alternatively it can be hard-wired.
If the mains socket and switch are not
accessible after the appliance has been
installed, or if it is hard-wired, a
separator for each terminal must be
present. There must be an all-pole
contact gap of at least 3 mm in the
switch.
This includes the switch, fuses and
relays (in accordance with EN 60335).
