Extraction mode
● The hood is supplied as an extractor unit and can also be used with a
filtering function by fitting activated carbon filters (available as an
● The unit features two outlet holes, one of which A is located on the
top of the unit while the other B is located on the rear.
● To connect up the hose, you should first fit the bayonet-mounting
flange C (Ø120 mm) on the outlet required (if using the top outlet,
fix the flange in place using the screw supplied as shown in Fig. 1).
Close off the unused hole using the bayonet fitting caps D.
● Important! To use the back hole B, remove switch F from the
top hole. — Fig 2.
● Move the lever L to position A — Fig. 3.
● When connecting up the hood using a telescopic wall pipe,
you should use an uninflammable outlet hose ABS 120 (120
mm Ø) available as an accessory.
Recirculation mode
● The air is filtered and recirculated through the front grid.
● Move the lever L to position F — Fig. 3.
You will need an original KFF activated carbon filter for filtering
function. (Available as an accessory).
Summer/Winter Hood Conversion
● To avoid excessive heat loss during the winter months, we
recommend that the hood be converted from extraction mode
to recirculation mode.
● In order to convert the hood, a charcoal filter (available as an
accessory) is required. Follow the instructions for operating the
hood to recirculate air.
● When the temperature outdoors becomes more mild (spring),
the filter can be removed and the hood converted once again for
to extraction. Please consult the assembly instructions for
operating the hood in extraction mode.
Electrical connection
220-240 V - using fixed power supply line with plug.
(The unit should only be connected up by an authorized electrician).

Safety warnings for kitchen unit installer
● When used as an extractor unit, the hood must be fitted with a
120mm diameter hose.
● If the fumes must be forced out through the wall, you must
obtain a MKZ sizable wall exhaust pipe (with external exhaust and
air intake), E-Nr.- 610 899 004 (Ø 120 mm) which is one of our
optional parts.
● When installing the hood, make sure you respect the following minimum distance from the top edge of the cooking
hob/ring surfaces:
electric cookers
gas cookers
650 mm
700 mm
● The hood cannot be connected to flues of other appliances that
run on energy sources other than electricity.
● 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.
● The national decree on fuel-burning systems specifies a maximum
depression of 0.04 bar in such rooms.
● 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 hood.
● 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 (120 mm Ø min.).
● Failure to observe these basic rules will drastically reduce the
performance and increase the noise levels of the extractor hood.
Wall unit mounting
● Make the holes on the bottom of the cupboard, using
the drilling template .
● From inside the cupboard, insert the 4 supplied screws
and tighten them in the appropriate holes on the
appliance. — Fig. 4.
Wall mounting
● Fix the drilling template to the wall.
● Make 3 Ø 8mm holes in the wall 2 at points I, 1 as desired at
points L.
● Insert the three Ø 8mm expansion plugs into the wall.
● Insert 2 5x45 screws at points I but do not tighten them
● Adjust the unit so that it is positioned at a right angle to the wall
by turning the two support screws G.
● Fit the hood into holes I, tighten the 2 screws.
● From inside the hood, insert the third 5x45 screw into hole L. —
Fig. 5
Hood Operation
● The hood is fitted with a variable speed motor. The most
effective use of the hood is obtained by switching it on a few
minutes before you start cooking and leaving it on a for
approximately 15 minutes after you have finished, thus ensuring
all cooking odours are eliminated. The control switches are
located on the unit’s front panel:
● the light switch switches the hood lamp on and off;
● the motor switch switches the extractor motor on and off,
enabling you to select one of the three different speeds.
