To Operate
Select the required functions.
The appliance can be installed to recirculate or extract
contaminated air. The cooker hood is more effective
when used in the extraction mode.
Extraction
In the extraction mode the contaminated air enters the
cooker hood, passes through the grease filter and out
through the ducting to the atmosphere.
Recirculation
In the recirculation mode contaminated air is passed
through the charcoal filters to be purified and
recirculated into the kitchen through a recirculation
grille. Ensure the charcoal filters are in position.
When the ducting mode is selected the
charcoal filters are not required.
Never do flambé cooking under this cooker
hood.
Never leave frying pans unattended during use
as over-heated fats and oils can catch fire.
Do not leave naked flames under the cooker
hood.
Ensure heating areas on your hob are covered
with pots and pans when using the hob and
cooker hood simultaneously.

INSTALLING THE COOKER HOOD
Please ensure that when the appliance is
installed it is easily accessible to an
engineer in the event of a breakdown.
All installations must comply with the local
authorities requirements for the discharge of
exhaust air.
Incorrect installation may affect the safety of
this cooker hood.
Installation Requirements
Before fitting the hood beneath any type of
canopy or wall cabinet, ensure that the housing
is firmly fixed to the wall in accordance with the
manufacturer’s instructions.
If it is necessary to fix the housing for the canopy to a
hollow construction plaster or partition board structure
then it should be sufficiently reinforced to be quite rigid
in the area of the cabinet housing fixings.
Ducting
The ducting must be fire retardant 125mm (5ins)
in diameter and the length should be no more than:
3 metres with one 90° bend
2 metres with two 90° bends
Bends of more than 90° will reduce the
efficiency of the hood and reduce the airflow.
Clearance Height
The cooker hood is designed to be fitted over a
cooking appliance at the clearance heights stated,
providing the maximum output of the appliance
beneath does not exceed the maximums quoted in the
Technical Specifications.
If the output of the appliance below the cooker hood
exceeds the maximum outputs quoted, please refer to
the cooker manufacturer’s installation instructions.
Clearance Height
A clearance height of 650mm (25 1/2 ”) is required
when installed above a built-in electric hob, or 700mm
(27 1/2 ”) when installed above a built-in gas hob.
A clearance height of 685mm (27”) is required when
installed above a slot-in electric cooker, or 787mm (30
1/2 ”) when installed above a slot-in gas cooker.
11
When installed between adjoining wall cabinets, the
wall cabinets must not overhang the hob and the
distance between the underside of the cabinet and the
worktop must be 450mm. If the height of the wall
cabinet is less than 450mm, a gap of 50mm must be
maintained either side of the hob.
This cooker hood must not be installed above a
cooking appliance with a high level grill.

ducting collar
Fitting the Cooker Hood into the
Housing/Canopy
The hood is fixed to the housing using the screw holes
located around the base of the casing. Access to the
screw holes will require the removal of the metal grille
panel.
Positioning the Cooker Hood
Measure the underside of the canopy or kitchen
cabinet to mark the position for the cut-out. The cutout measurement should be:
- 497mm (19 5/8”) wide
- 259mm (10 1/4”) deep
Check the position of the hole is correct with the
measurements above before making the cut-out.
The hood is fixed using the holes located in the rim
around the base of the casing visible when the inlet
grille is in the open position.
Support the grille panel with one hand and draw down
on the two grey handles (A) which are located on each
side of the grille with the other hand.
Raise the hood into the cut out and mark the positions
for the fixing screws. Pilot drill the fixing holes and fit
the hood.
Venting
The hood is more effective when used in the
extraction mode (ducted to the outside). Venting kits
maybe purchased through your retailer or DIY store,
and must be ducted to an outside vent of 125mm (5”)
minimum.
The ducting used must be manufactured from
fire retardant material.
When the hood is ducted externally the charcoal filters
must be removed.

Recirculation
If you are using the hood for recirculating, ensure the
charcoal filters are in position following the instructions
below.
1.
Inserting the Charcoal Filters
Remove the grille panel, support the grille with
one hand and draw down on the two grey
handles (located at each side of the grille).
2.
The charcoal filters are handed and should be
fitted one at a time.
3.
Insert one end of the filter into the slots in the
fan housing, then lower the other and until the
tab engages the slot in the casing.
Extraction
The charcoal filters are not required in this mode and
should be removed. To do this reverse the procedure
described in Inserting the ‘Charcoal Filters’.
Ducting
The ducting used must be fire retardant 125mm (5”) in
diameter. If possible duct through the wall at the rear
of the canopy or wall cabinet. For the best performance use the shortest possible duct run and the minimum
number of bends. Where flexible ducting is fitted it
should not be turned through very tight bends as this
may impair the performance of the hood. It is
recommended a maximum length of 3m, to be
installed, to be reduced 1m for each 90° bend installed
in the ducting run. If the distance is greater than 3m
the efficiency of the hood could be impaired.
A ducting collar of 120-125 mm (5”) is supplied for
attaching to ducting if you are using the appliance in
the extraction mode.
If the room where the cooker hood is to be
used contains a fuel burning appliance such as
a central heating boiler, then its flue must be of
the room sealed or balanced flue type.
If other types of flue or appliances are fitted
ensure that there is an adequate supply of air
to the room.
The cooker hood ducting (extraction version)
must never be connected to central heating
flues, radiators or water heaters etc.
