Safety instructions
The cooker hood may only be used in a private household and for normal cooking purposes. It fulfils international safety
regulations and standards of quality. All precautionary measures however cannot fully eliminate all the accident risks.
Therefore you should read through instructions, advises and safety instructions carefully before you install and start using
the cooker hood. Pay special attention to sentences with a warning triangle to avoid damages to person or property. Save
the instruction boook for future reference if the cooker hood is sold or left to another person.
Installation and service
Use of cooker hood
• Any electrical installation of the cooker hood must be
carried out by a qualified electrician and the hood itself
must be installed by someone with experience.
Installation made by an unqualified person can lead to
loss of function of the cooker hood and possible damage
to person and/or property.
• The cooker hood must be at least 50 cm above electric
burners or electric range, or at least 75 cm above gas
burners or gas range.
• Ensure that the power cord does not get squeezed at the
• The cooker hood is only dead when the plug or the fuse
is disconnected.
• The cooker hood cannot be connected to flues of other
appliances that run on energy sources other than
electricity. Please, keep to the provisions of official
directives regarding the question of fumes discharge.
• Never leave any deep-frying, melting fat, paraffin or
any other inflammable unattended on the hob. If
event of fire: Immediately switch off the cooker
hood and the cooker. Note! Cover the fire. Never use
• Never do any flambé cooking underneath the cooker
hood. It can cause a fire. Remember that overheated
fat may spontaneously ignite. Never leave the
fraying pan unattended.
• It is essential that the grease filter is regularly
cleaned to avoid fat to drip on to the hot zone and
cause fire. Read also the part “Maintenance and
Cleaning” in the instruction book.
• Prevent accidents when disposing your cooker hood.
Disconnect the power plug from the wall socket and
cut the power cord at the hood inlet. Contact your
local authority for information on where to dispose

Fig. 1
The following are included with the cooker hood (Fig. 1):
• Screws for mounting
• Template
• Non return fume valve (mounted in the outlet hole)
There are two possible systems:
• Extraction of air to outside using optional venting kit
and evacuation duct
• Recirculation using carbon filter.
Exhausting version
The air is vented outdoors by a 150 mm duct which must be
connected to connecting ring with no return valve on top of
the motor package.
The cooker hood cannot be connected to flues of
other appliances that run on energy sources other
than electricity. Please, keep to the provisions of
official directives regarding the question of fumes
Recycling version
The air is filtered through a carbon filter and recirculated
into the room through the top sides of the chimney.
This version is used when there is no exhaust duct for
venting outdoors or when it is impossible to install one.
Special accessories
Active carbon filter
When the hood is used in recirculation mode an active
carbon filter should be used.

Using the cooker hood
The control panel
Best results are obtained by using low speed for normal conditions and high speed when smells and steam are more
Turn the hood on a few minutes before you start cooking then you will get an underpressure in the kitchen. It should
be left on after cooking for about 15 minutes or until all steam and smells have disappeared.
The control panel is located on the front right side
Lighting, on/off.
Decrease fan speed button for reducing
speed of motor from 3 down to speed 1.
Fan off
Fast speed switch (P+ the led on the bottom
right side of the display flashes). This speed
should be used when the concentration of
cooking fumes or odours is particularly strong
(for example when frying, cooking fish etc.).
The fast speed will run for about 5 minutes
and then return to the speed previously set
automatically (1, 2 or 3), or switch off if no
speed was selected.
To turn off the fast speed, before the end of
the 5 minutes, press button
Display showing fan speed (1-3-P), change
grease filters (grease filter saturation indicator
- F) and change activated carbon filters
(carbon filter saturation indicator - C).
A lighted Led on the right bottom side
indicates the hood is in stand-by
The active carbon filter saturation function is
not activated.
In order to activate the carbon filter saturation
indicator, press buttons
simultaneously for 3 seconds. Initially, only
letter F will fbe displayed, then after the 3
seconds have passed, letter C will be
displayed as well, indicating that the carbon
filter saturation control system is active.
To switch off the system, re-press the same
two buttons: letter C appear on display and
after 3 seconds letter it disappear and the
device will be switched off.
Increase fan speed button for increasing
speed of motor from 1 to 3.
If the hood fails to operate correctly,
briefly disconnect it from the mains
power supply for almost 5 sec. by pulling
out the plug. Then plug it in again and
try once more before contacting the
Technical Assistance Service.
Always press the fan off button
the hood from the mains supply.
before disconnecting
Correct ventilation
If the cooker hood should be working correctly there
must be an underpressure in the kitchen. It is important
to keep the kitchen windows closed and have a window
in an adjacent room open.
Important to know
Not applicable for recirculation. Great care must be
taken if the hood is used at the same time as a burner or
fireplace (e.g. gas, diesel, coal or wood heaters, water
heaters, etc.), as the hood will expel air which is
required by these other appliances. Attend to it by
opening a window. The negative pressure in the room
must not exceed 0,04 mbar to prevent fumes being
drawn back into the room by the cooker hood.
Maintenance and cleaning
Before doing any maintenance work on the hood,
disconnect it from the main supply by
disconnecting the plug from the wall socket or
unscrewing the fuse.
Clean the filter regularly. The grease that
collects in the filter and the duct could ignite
if a hot plate is left on (or if overheating
Cleaning the hood
Clean the outside of the hood using a damp cloth and a
mild detergent. Never use corrosive, abrasive or flammable
cleaning products.
Cleaning the grease filters
Clean the filter every month or every other month according
to how much the hood is used. The cleaner the filters, the
better it collects grease. Remove the filter by (Fig. 2):
• Push the handle towards the rear of the hood (a).
• Pull the filter down at the front and remove it forwards
The filter is made of aluminium wires on which the grease
collects. Clean the filter in hot water using a detergent, or in
a dishwasher. Let the filter dry before putting it back. Note
that a dishwasher may discolour the filter.
Fig. 2
Cleaning/replacing the carbon filter
Only applicable for recirculation. The carbon filters absorb
smells and odours.
Unlike other carbon filters, the TYPE 23 carbon filter can be
cleaned and reactivated. At normal use the filter should be
cleaned every second month. The best way to clean the filter
is in the dishwasher. Use normal detergent and choose the
highest temperature (65º C). Wash the filter separately so that
no food parts gets stuck on the filter and later causes bad odours.
To reactivate the carbon, the filter should be dried in an oven
for 10 minutes with a temperature of maximum 100ºC.
After approximately three years of use, the TYPE 23 filter
should be replaced with a new, as the odour reduction capacity
will be reduced.
Mounting the carbon filter (Fig. 2):
• Unplug the unit or disconnect it from the power supply
• Remove the metal grease filters. Fig. 1.
• Unscrew the two carbon filter frame screws and insert the
active carbon filter in the support.
• Re-close the carbon filter frame using the same screws.
• Refit the metal grease filters.
To dismount proceed in reverse order.
