• Increase the speed only in case of large amount of smoke and vapour and use boost speed(s) only in extreme situations.
• Replace the charcoal filter(s) when necessary to maintain a good odour reduction efficiency.
• Clean the grease filter(s) when necessary to maintain a good grease filter efficiency.
• Use the maximum diameter of the ducting system indicated in this manual to optimize efficiency and minimize noise.
After unpacking the appliance, check for any transport damage. In the event of problems, contact the dealer or your nearest After-sales Service. To prevent any
damage, only remove the appliance from its polystyrene foam packaging at the time of installation.
this is a heavy product; the hood should only be lifted and installed by two or more people.
The minimum distance between the support of the cooking pans on top of the cooker and the bottom of the hood must not be less than 65 cm for electric
cookers and 75 cm for gas or mixed cookers. Before installation also check the minimum distances stated in the manual of the cooker.
If the installation instructions for the cooker specify a greater distance between cooker and hood, this distance must be observed.
Make sure the power voltage specified on the appliance rating plate is the same as the mains voltage.
This information may be found on the inside of the hood, under the grease filter.
Power cable replacement (type H05 VV-F 3 x 0,75 mm²) must be carried out by a qualified electrician. Contact an authorized service centre.
If the hood is fitted with an electric plug, connect the plug to a socket complying with current regulations, located in an accessible place after installation. If no
plug is fitted (direct wiring to the mains), or if the socket is not located in an accessible place, install a standardised double pole power switch that will enable
complete isolation from the mains in case of category III overvoltage conditions, in accordance with installation rules.
If the cable is not fitted with a plug, connect the wires according to the following table:
Mains voltage
and frequency
220-240 V
