The fume extractor hood must never be
opened without the grease filters installed and it
should be kept under constant supervision.
Gas appliances must be used under the
extractor hood only with pans resting.
When using more than three gas cooking points,
the hood should be operating at power level 2
or greater. This will eliminate heat congestion in
the appliance.

After-sales Service
Before calling the After-sales Service:
1. See if you can solve the problem yourself with
the help of the “Troubleshooting guide”.
2. Switch the hood off and then on again to see if
the problem has been resolved.

If, after the above checks, the problem
persists, contact your nearest After-sales
Always provide:
• a brief description of the problem;
• the type and specific model of the appliance;
• the Service number (this is the number which
follows the word SERVICE on the dataplate),
inside the appliance. The Service number is also
printed on the warranty booklet;
• your full address;

month to remove built-up oil and grease.
•Clean the surfaces with a damp cloth. If very
dirty, add a few drops of washing up detergent to
the water. Dry with a dry cloth.
Extraction Modes
The hood is designed to be used in two
modes: Venting exhaust fumes to the
outside, or by passing the air through a
charcoal filter brfore recirculating the air
back into the kitchen.
Venting mode
The hood comes with an upper air outlet
B for the discharge of fumes to the
outside (venting pipe and fixing straps not
supplied). Fig. 1
Recirculation Mode
This mode is to be used when it is not
possible to vent the air to the outside.
Air is purified by passing through activated
charcoal filters (not provided) and
recirculated back out into the kitchen.
The air is sent back into the atmosphere
via a pipe that passes through the
cupboard cabinetry and is connected to
the connector ring. Fig. 2
The minimum distance between the
upper pan support surfaces on the
cooking appliance and the lowest part of
the cooker hood should be no less than
50 cm in the case of electrical cookers
and 70 cm in the case of gas or mixed
cookers. If the installation instructions for
the gas cooking appliance specify a
greater distance, then follow this
The hood comes with plugs suitable for most walls
/ ceilings. You should however consult a qualified
technician to make sure the installation is suitable
for your kind of wall/ceiling. The wall/roof should
be sufficiently strong to support the weight of the
is to be installed. Otherwise, protect the units
as much as possible and all the parts relating to
the installation. Choose a flat surface and cover
it with some protection where you can place
the hood and parts.
• Disconnect the hood by turning off the mains
switch in the house whilst connecting the
• Furthermore, check that near the area where
you are installing the hood (in an area accessible
even when the hood is fitted) there is an
electric socket and that you can connect to an
extractor towards the outside (only in the
venting mode).
• Carry out all the building work necessary (e.g.:
installation of an electrical supply and/or hole to
pass the venting pipe through).
This kind of hood must be inserted into a
cupboard or cabinetry for support.
Before installation:
• Check that the product purchased is the right
size for the area where it is to be installed.
• To make installation easier, temporarily remove
the grease filters and other parts that can be
removed whose dismantling and assembly are
described here. These should be refitted when
installation is complete. See the relative
paragraph for dismantling.
• Remove the active carbon filter/s if provided
(again consult relative paragraph). This/these
should be re-assembled only if you wish to use
the hood in the recirculation mode.
• Check that there are no parts (e.g. bags with
screws, warranty) inside of the hood (for
transport reasons). If there are, remove them
and put to the side.
• If possible, disconnect and remove the
surrounding units and those near the installation
area of the hood so that you have better
accessibility to the ceiling / wall where the hood

• Connect an extraction pipe to the connection
ring on the hood and, whilst you inserting the
hood into the cabinetry, check that the
extraction pipe and the electrical wire come out
of the hole made in the top of the cupboard.
• Attach the hood to the bottom of the cupboard
with 8 screws. The frame on the box has more
than 8 slots for passing the screws through, use
the most suitable ones for your installation
making them as equidistant as possible.

• Remove the grease filter and hook the filter
support frame onto the hood. At this stage
connect up the electrics on the control panel
and the lights.
• Hook the filter support frame onto the hood
(snap fitting onto the two side seals).
• Refit the grease filter.

If there are any running problems, before contacting the Customer Care Centre, disconnect the appliance
from the mains for at least 5 seconds by removing the plug, then reconnect again.
If the problem persists, contact the Customer care Centre.
Always disconnect the power supply before carrying out any kind of maintenance work.
The hood should be cleaned regularly both inside and out (at least as often as you carry out maintenance
on the grease filters).
Use a damp cloth with mild cleaning products. Avoid using harsh products. DO NOT USE ALCOHOL!
Warning: Failure to follow the cleaning instructions on the hood and the replacement and
cleaning of the filters, could lead to a fire starting. Please, therefore, follow the instructions
given carefully.
Grease filter
It should be cleaned by hand once a month with
mild cleaning products, or in the dishwasher at a
low temperature and on the short cycle.
When washing in the dishwasher, the metallic
grease filter might discolour but its filtering abilities
remain unchanged.
In order to dismantle the grease filter, pull the
spring handle to unhook it. Fig. 7
Carbon filter (only in recirculation mode) Fig. 8
The Activated Carbon Filter absorbs the unpleasant
smells produced when cooking.
The saturation of the carbon filter varies depending
on the installation, usage and how often the grease
filters are cleaned.
In any case, the cartridge must be replaced at least
once every four months.
Fitting/dismantling the carbon filter:
- Remove the grease filter, unhook the filter
support frame taking care to disconnect the
control panel and lights (see Fig. 5).
- Attach a carbon filter on each side to cover
both the protection grills on the motor impeller,
then turn the central handle C on the filters
clockwise. Turn the central handle C on each
filter anticlockwise to dismantle.
- Refit the filter support frame, re-connecting the
control panel and lights and refitting the grease
Replacing the bulbs Fig. 9
Disconnect the appliance from the mains supply.
Warning! Before touching the light bulbs
make sure they have cooled down.
1. Remove the protective cover using a small flat
screwdriver or a similar tool.
2. Replace the blown bulb.
Only use 20W max (G4) halogen bulbs, and do
not touch them with your bare hands.
3. Fit the light cover on again (clicks into place).
If the light does not work, check that the bulb has
been inserted properly before calling the Customer
Care Centre.
