Installing the cooker hood
Fitting the wall brackets
• Draw a vertical line on the supporting wall up to the
ceiling, or as high as practical, at the centre of the
area in which the hood will be installed.
• Draw a horizontal line at 650 mm above the hob
for installation without the back panel, or at height H
(H=height of the visible part of the panel) for installation
with the back panel.
• Place bracket 7.2.1 on the wall as shown about 1-2
mm from the ceiling or upper limit aligning the centre
(notch) with the vertical reference line.
• Mark the wall at the centres of the holes in the bracket.
• Place bracket 7.2.1 on the wall as shown at X mm
below the first bracket (X = height of the upper chimney
section supplied), aligning the centre (notch) with the
vertical line.
• Mark the wall at the centres of the holes in the bracket.
• Place bracket 7.1 as shown 95 mm from the vertical
reference line and 210 mm above the horizontal reference line.
• Mark the centres of the holes in the bracket.
• Repeat this operation on the other side.
Splashback (Optional)
The Splashback must be fitted before fixing the
hood body and, if it is to be fixed at both top and
bottom, must be fitted at the correct height prior
to installing the bases. As this operation is rather
complex, it should be carried out either by the
kitchen installer or a qualified person who knows
the final dimensions of the units.
For fixing at the top only, proceed as follows:
• Rest the back panel on the base, inserting the lower
plate between the upper surface and the wall, centring
it on the vertical reference line.
• Mark the centres of the two holes in the upper plate.
• Drill ø 8 mm holes at all the centre points marked.

• Hook the hood body onto the bracket 7.1, centring it around
the vertical line.
• Use the adjusting screws item 12d underneath the hood to
level the hood body
Hook both sides of the hood at the same time.
Extraction (Ducted)
The cooker hood is more effective when installed in
the extraction mode (ducted to the outside).
Venting kits may be purchased through your retailer
or DIY store, and must be evacuated through an
outside vent of ø125 (5ins) or ø150mm (6ins).
The ducting used must be manufactured from fire
retardant material conforming to the relevant British
Standard or DIN 4102-B1.
When the cooker hood is ducted to the outside
the charcoal filter must be removed.
Fitting the Ducting
• When installing the ducted version, connect the hood
to the chimney using either a flexible or rigid pipe
ø 150 or 125 mm, the choice of which is left to the
• To install a ø 125 mm air exhaust connection, insert
the reducer flange 9 on the hood body air outlet and
the adapting ring ø120-125 10 on the reducer flange.
• Fix the pipe in position using sufficient pipe clamps
(not supplied).
• Remove any activated charcoal filters.
Recirculation Mode
The cooker hood is supplied specified for use in the recirculation
mode, with the charcoal filter fitted.
In the recirculation mode contaminated air is passed through
the charcoal filter to be purified and recirculated into the kitchen
through the grille outlets on either side of the chimney.
• Push fit the air outlet connector item 15 onto the air
• Ensure the activated charcoal filter has been fitted.
Fitting the Upper Chimney
• Slightly widen the two sides of the upper chimney and
hook them behind the brackets item 7.2.1 ensuring they
are correctly seated.
• Secure the sides to the brackets using the 4 screws item
12c (2.9 x 9.5mm) supplied.
Fitting the Lower Chimney
• Slightly widen the two sides of the lower chimney and hook
them between the upper chimney and the wall, ensuring
they are correctly seated.
• Fix the lower chimney to the hood body using 2 screws
item 12c (2.9 x 9.5mm) supplied.
• Make sure that the air outlet connection is aligned with the
chimney outlets.

For your own safety this should be undertaken by a qualified
electrician e.g. your local Electricity Board, or a contractor who
is on the roll of the National Inspection Council for Electrical
Installation Contracting (NICEIC).
Electrical connection
Before connecting to the mains supply ensure that the mains
voltage corresponds to the voltage on the rating plate inside
the cooker hood.
Remove the grease filters (see paragraph Maintenance)
making sure that the connector of the feeding cable is correctly
inserted in the socket placed on the side of the fan.
This appliance is fitted with a 3 core mains cable and must be

To operate
Select the required fan speed and light if required.
In the recirculation mode the contaminated air enters
the cooker hood through the grease filters. The air is
cleaned by passing through the charcoal filters before
being passed back into the kitchen through the grilles in
either side of the chimney stack.
In the extraction mode the contaminated air enters the
cooker hood passing through the grease filters and is
passed out through the ducting into the atmosphere.
To obtain the best performance when cooking it is advisable to switch the cooker hood on for a few minutes
before you start cooking and leave it running for about
15 minutes after finishing.
When used in the ducting mode the charcoal
filters are not required.
Never do flambé cooking under this cooker
Never leave frying pans unattended during use,
as over-heated fats and oils can catch fire.
Do not leave naked flames under the cooker
Ensure heating areas on your hob are covered
with pots and pans when using the hob and
cooker hood simultaneously.
