INSTALLATION
When installing the hood, the minimum distances from the cooktop must be respected, and
the numerical sequence and additional instructions must be followed exactly as indicated on
the Installation sheet.
EXTERNAL EXHAUST MODE
A
( - see also instruction sheet)
Cooking fumes and vapours are conveyed
outside through a duct connected to the hood by
means of a collar.
The outlet duct diameter must be the same as
that of the collar.
If a flue-damper is to be installed, check that
it can open and close freely when installation
of the exhaust duct is complete.
The hood can be supplied with one (upper) or
two (upper and rear) exhaust outlet holes.
The hood is usually set up for using the
upper exhaust outlet.
1. The collar must be seated in the upper
exhaust outlet.
Use the rear exhaust outlet (where present).
1. Where fitted, remove the cover closing off the
rear outlet and collar.
2. Some models are fitted with a plastic
deflector that closes off the rear outlet.
If fitted, remove it.
3. Fit the collar in the rear outlet.
4. Put the cover (if fitted) in the upper outlet.
Warning! If the hood has a carbon filter, this
should be removed.
Check that the switch inside the hood (if fitted)
is in position “A” Extractor; if not, set it to
this position.
10
AIR CIRCULATION MODE
F
( - see also installation sheet)
The air is filtered by a carbon filter and recycled
into the surrounding atmosphere. The filtered air
is released towards the kitchen ceiling.
Warning! If the hood does not have a carbon
filter, order one and fit it before use.
Check that the switch inside the hood (if fitted) is
on position “F” Filter; if not, set it to this position.
If the plug is provided, close off the upper
exhaust hole.
ELECTRICAL CONNECTION
Before connecting the hood, make sure the
voltage indicated on the rating plate corresponds
to the voltage in your home.
The plate is located inside the hood behind
the grille.
For GB this appliance is supplied without a plug
and is intended for direct connection to fixed
wiring in accordance with national wiring
regulations. An all-pole disconnection switch
with a minimum contact separation of 3 mm must
be included in the fixed wiring in an easily
accessible position.
The Manufacturer shall not be liable for
any damage or problem arising from
the failure to comply with the
above-mentioned instructions.
