Safety warnings
For the User
• The cooker hood is designed to extract unpleasant odours from the
kitchen, it will not extract steam.
• Always cover lighted elements, to prevent excess heat from
damaging the appliance. In the case of oil, gas and coal fired
cookers it is essential to avoid open flames.
• Also, when frying, keep the deep frying pan on the cooker top/cooker
under careful control.
• The hot oil in the frying pan might ignite due to overheating.
• The risk of self-ignition increases when the oil being used is dirty.
• It is extremely important to note that overheating can cause a fire.
• Never carry out any flambé cooking under the hood.
• Always disconnect the unit from the power supply before
carrying out any work on the hood, including replacing the
light bulb (take the cartridge fuse out of the fuse holder or switch off
the automatic circuit breaker).
• It is very important to clean the hood and replace the filter at
the recommended intervals. Failure to do so could cause
grease deposits to build up, resulting in a fire hazard.
For the Installer
• When used as an extractor unit, the hood must be fitted with a
150mm diameter hose.
• Should there already be a pipe of diameter 125 mm that ducts to
the outside through the walls or roof, it is possible to use the 150/
125 mm reduction flange provided. In this case the hood will be
slightly more noisy.
• When installing the hood, make sure you respect the following
minimum distance from the top edge of the cooking hob/ring
electric cookers
500 mm
gas cookers
650 mm
coal and oil cookers
700 mm min.
• The national standard on fuel-burning systems specifies a maximum
depression of 0.04 bar in such rooms.
• The air outlet must not be connected to chimney flues or combustion gas ducts. The air outlet must under no circumstances be
connected to ventilation ducts for rooms in which fuel-burning
appliances are installed.
• It is advisable to apply for authorization from the relevant controlling
authority when connecting the outlet to an unused chimney flue or
combustion gas duct.
The air outlet installation must comply with the regulations laid down
by the relevant authorities.
• When the unit is used in its extractor version, a sufficiently large
ventilation hole must be provided, with dimensions that are
approximately the same as the outlet hole.
• National and regional building regulations impose a number of
restrictions on using hoods and fuel-burning appliances connected to
a chimney, such as coal or oil room-heaters and gas fires, in the
same room.
• Hoods can only be used safely with appliances connected to a
chimney if the room and/or flat (air/environment combination) is
ventilated from outside using a suitable ventilation hole approximately
500-600 cm2 large to avoid the possibility of a depression being
created during operation of the hood.
• If you have any doubts, contact the relevant controlling authority or
building inspector’s office.
• Since the rule for rooms with fuel burning appliances is “outlet hole of
the same size as the ventilation hole”, a hole of 500-600 cm2, which
is to say a larger hole, could reduce the performance of the extractor
• If the hood is used in its filtering function, it will operate simply and
safely in the above conditions without the need for any of the
aforementioned measures.
• When the hood is used in its extractor function, the following rules
must be followed to obtain optimal operation:
— short and straight outlet hose
— keep bends in outlet hose to a minimum
— never install the hoses with an acute angle, they must
always follow a gentle curve only
— keep the hose as large as possible (preferably the same diameter
as the outlet hole).
• Failure to observe these basic instructions will drastically reduce the
performance and increase the noise levels of the extractor hood.
Description of the Appliance
• The hood is supplied as an extractor unit and can also be used with
a filtering function by fitting one charcoal filter
• You will need an original AEG charcoal filter for this function
(Available from your local AEG Service Force Centre).
Extractor version
• The air is discharged to the outside through a hose, which must be
fitted to connection flange A. Fig. 1.
• In order to obtain the best performance
the hose should have a diameter equal
to the outlet hole.
Should there already be a pipe of
diameter 125 mm that ducts to the
outside through the walls or roof, it is
possible to use the 150/125 mm
reduction flange provided. In this case
the hood will be slightly more noisy.
Fig. 1
Filter Version
• The air is filtered through a charcoal filter and returned to the kitchen
through the top grill of the outlet pipe.
• You will need an original AEG charcoal filter for the filtering function.
• Fix the deflector using 4 screws Ø 3,5x6.5 mm. Fig. 2.
• Optionally, the position of the chimney elements can be changed.
When using the hood in the filter version the chimney must be fixed
at the top, with the air outlet grill at the side.

Control Panel
• Best results are obtained by using a low speed for normal conditions
and a high speed when odours are more concentrated.
Turn the hood on a few minutes before you start cooking, you will
then get an under pressure in the kitchen. The hood should be left on
after cooking for about 15 minutes or until all the odours have

Correct ventilation
If the cooker hood is to work correctly there must be an under
pressure in the kitchen. It is important to keep the kitchen windows
closed and have a window in an adjacent room open.
This is 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. In this situation, ensure that a window is open. 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 care
• The hood must always be disconnected from the electricity
supply before beginning any maintenance work.
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.
• Never insert pointed objects in the motor’s protective grid.
• Only ever clean the switch panel and filter grille using a damp cloth
and mild detergents.
• It is extremely important to clean the unit and change the filters at
the recommended intervals. Failure to do so will cause grease
deposits to build up that could constitute a fire hazard.
Metal grease filter
• The purpose of the grease filters is to
absorb grease particles which form
during cooking and it must always be
used, either in the external ducted or
internal recycling function.
Attention: the metal grease filters must
be removed and washed, either by hand
or in the dishwasher, every four weeks.
Open the metal grease filter
• First, push the metal grease filter stop
backwards, then extract the filter,
pulling downwards. Fig. 3.
Fig. 3
Hand washing
Soak grease filters for about one hour in hot water with a greaseloosening cleaner, then rinse off thoroughly with hot water. Repeat
the process if necessary. Refit the grease filters when they are dry.
Place grease filters in dishwasher. Select the most powerful washing
programme and highest temperature, at least 65°C. Repeat the
process. Refit the grease filters when they are dry.
When washing the metal grease filter in the dishwasher a slight
discolouration of the filter can occur, this does not have any impact
on its performance.
Charcoal filter
• The charcoal filter should only be used if you want to use the hood in
its filtering function.
• To do this you will need an original AEG charcoal filter.
• Replacing the charcoal filter
The charcoal filters cannot be cleaned, we recommend that they
should be replaced approximately every three months or more often if
the hood is used for more than three hours per day.
• Fitting
Remove the frame b which supports the filter c by unscrewing it
from the hood a, Fig. 4.
Insert the coal mattress inside the frame and put all parts back in
their place.
• To remove proceed in the reverse order.
• Always specify the hood model code number and serial number
when ordering replacement filters. This information is shown on the
registration plate located on the inside of the unit.
• The charcoal filter can be ordered from your local AEG Service Force
Fig. 4
• Failure to observe the instructions on cleaning the unit and changing
the filters could cause a fire hazard. You are therefore strongly
recommended to follow these instructions.
• The manufacturer declines all responsibility for any damage to the
motor or any fire damage linked to inappropriate maintenance or
failure to observe the above safety recommendations.
Changing the light bulb
Disconnect the cooker hood from the mains supply.
Remove the lamp cover, use a screw driver as a lever. Fig. 5.
Replace the old bulb with a new one of the same type.
Refit the lamp cover.
If the light does not come on, make sure the bulb has been inserted
in correctly before contacting your local AEG Service Force Centre.
