model:
Vented mode
The air is drawn in and cleaned by the
grease filters and directed outside.
Non-return flap
A non-return flap in the ducting prevents the exchange of inside and outside air from occurring when the ventilation hood is not in use.
The flap is closed when the ventilation
hood is turned off.
When the ventilation hood is turned on,
the non-return flap opens so that the
exhaust air can be transported outside
without any obstruction.
A non-return flap has been provided
with the hood in case your ducting does
not have one. It is inserted into the outlet duct collar of the fan.
14
Recirculation mode
The recirculation mode requires a recirculation kit and OdorFree Charcoal Filter (available as optional accessories,
see "Technical Data" for more information)
The air is drawn in and first cleaned by
the grease filters and then by an OdorFree Charcoal Filter. The cleaned air is
then recirculated back into the kitchen.
Description of functions
Con@ctivity 2.0 function
Automatic control
This hood features a communication
function which enables the automatic
control of the hood based on the operational status of a Miele induction cooktop.
The cooktop transmits information
about its operational status to the hood
using a radio signal.
– When a burner is turned on, the
cooktop lighting on the hood turns on
automatically. After a brief delay, the
ventilation hood fan also comes on.
– During cooking, the hood automatically selects the fan level based on
the number of burners in operation
and their power levels.
– Once you have turned off the cooktop, the fan and the lighting will turn
off automatically after a predetermined delay.
Detailed information about this function
can be found under "Operation."
To enable the communication function,
the cooktop must be equipped with the
corresponding Con@ctivity 2.0 stick .
Please refer to the installation instructions for the Con@ctivity 2.0 stick to determine whether connection to your
cooktop is possible.
There must be radio contact between
the cooktop and the hood for you to be
able to use the Con@ctivity 2.0 function
(see "Activating Con@ctivity 2.0").

Operation (Automatic mode)
When Con@ctivity 2.0 is active, the
hood always operates in Automatic
mode (see "Activating Con@ctivity
2.0").
See "Cooking without Con@ctivity 2.0"
for information on manually operating
the hood.
Cooking with Con@ctivity 2.0
(Automatic mode)
 Turn on a burner to the desired power
setting.
Overhead cooktop lighting.
After a few seconds, the fan will come
on, briefly operating at power level 2
before immediately switching to level 1.
The hood selects the fan level automatically during cooking.
This level is determined by the total output of the cooktop, i.e. the number of
burners in operation and the power settings selected.
 If you select a higher power setting
on the cooktop or switch on multiple
burners, the hood will switch to a
higher fan level.
 If you select a lower power setting on
the cooktop or turn off a burner, the
hood will accordingly switch to a
lower fan level.
Examples for fan levels 1 to 4
18
Reaction time
Changing the power setting on the
cooktop does not lead to an immediate
increase or decrease in cooking vapors.
For this reason, the hood reacts with a
slight delay.
Delays can also result from the fact that
the cooktop transmits the information to
the hood in intervals.
The reaction time can vary from a few
seconds to a couple of minutes.
Operation (Automatic mode)
Cooking process
Deactivation
 If, for example, you switch on a
burner at the highest power setting to
heat cookware in preparation for
searing and then reduce the power
level after approx. 60 to 90 seconds,
a cooking process is recognized.
 Turn off all burners.
The hood turns on automatically and,
after the cooktop power level has been
reduced, switches back to fan level 3,
where it remains for approx. 5 minutes.
After this, the fan level is once again determined by the Con@ctivity function.
 You can also manually select a different fan level before then.
Over the next few minutes, the ventilation hood fan setting will decrease one
level at a time until the hood eventually
turns off.
This helps to neutralize any lingering vapors and odors in the air.
– From the intensive setting, the fan immediately switches to level 3.
– If the fan is operating at level 3, it will
switch to level 2 after approx. 1
minute.
– From level 2, the fan switches to level
1 after 2 minutes.
– After 2 minutes at level 1, the fan automatically turns off.
– After another 30 seconds, the overhead cooktop lighting turns off.
The cooking process is now finished.
19
Operation (Automatic mode)
Temporarily exiting Automatic
mode

appliance's appearance.
Cleaning and care
Important for the controls
Do not leave dirt and debris on the
buttons for any length of time.
Otherwise they may become discolored or damaged.
Remove any dirt or debris immediately.
 Observe the general cleaning instructions contained in this chapter.
Do not use a stainless steel cleaner
to clean the control buttons.
Special instructions for glass surfaces
 Glass surfaces can be cleaned using
a cleaning agent specifically designed for glass.
Grease filters
The reusable metal grease filters in the
appliance remove the solid particles
contained in kitchen vapors (fat, dust,
etc.), thereby preventing the ventilation
hood from becoming dirty.
 A dirty filter is a fire hazard!
Cleaning intervals
Over longer periods of time, fat buildup
on the grease filter hardens and makes
cleaning more difficult. Therefore, we
recommend cleaning the grease filters
once every 3-4 weeks.
By illuminating the grease filter symbol,
the filter saturation counter  reminds
you to regularly clean the grease filters.
 You can adjust the interval of the filter
saturation counter to match your
cooking habits (see "Operation").
Removing the grease filters
During removal, the filter may drop to
the ground.
This can result in damage to the filter
and the cooktop.
During cleaning, be sure to hold the
filter securely.
27
Cleaning and care
Cleaning the grease filters in the
dishwasher
 Place the filters as upright as possible
in the lower basket. Ensure that the
spray arm is not obstructed.
 Use a common dishwashing detergent.
 To remove a grease filter, release the
locking clip. Then, open the filter to a
45° angle, unhook it, and remove it
from the hood.
Cleaning the grease filters by hand
 Clean the filters with a soft nylon
brush in a mild solution of hot water
and dish soap. Do not use undiluted
dish soap.
Unsuitable cleaning agents
Unsuitable cleaners can cause damage
to the filter surfaces if used regularly.
Do not use any of the following:
– Lime removers
– Abrasive powders or abrasive liquids
– Aggressive all-purpose cleaners and
degreaser sprays
– Oven sprays
28
 Select a program with a wash temperature between 120°F (50°C) and
150°F (65°C). In a Miele dishwasher
use the "Normal" program.
Depending on the detergent used,
cleaning the filters in a dishwasher
may cause the inside filter surfaces to
become discolored. However, this will
not affect the functioning of the filters
in any way.
After cleaning
 After cleaning, leave the filters on an
absorbent surface to dry.
 When removing the filters for cleaning, also clean off any accessible oil
or fat buildup from the housing. Doing so will prevent a fire hazard.
 Reinstall the grease filters. When inserting the filters, make sure that the
locking clip is facing down.
Cleaning and care
 If the filters have been installed incorrectly, you can insert a small screwdriver into the slit to disengage the
locking clip.

Installation recommendations
Structural support
– We also recommend a distance of at
least 26" (660 mm) above electric
cooktops to provide more workspace
and easier cooking under the hood.
– When selecting an installation height,
always take the user height into consideration. Users should have ample
space to work comfortably on the
cooktop and reach the ventilation
hood controls with ease.
– Please note that the greater the distance from the cooktop, the less effective the hood is at drawing in the
cooking vapors.
– To achieve optimal vapor extraction,
make sure that the hood covers the
cooktop. The hood should be positioned centrally over the cooktop, not
to the side or rear.
– The cooktop should be no wider than
the hood. Preferably, it should be
narrower.
– The mounting area must be easily accessible. The ventilation hood should
be easy to reach and disassemble in
case a service call is necessary. This
should be taken into consideration
when planning the position of cabinetry, shelves, ceilings or decorative
elements in the vicinity of the ventilation hood.
34
The hood must be attached to rigid
structural framing that is supported
in its entirety by the ceiling joists, or
to the ceiling joists directly. Do not
attach the plate directly to the ceiling
with anchors, toggle bolts, etc.
Removing the protective film
The housing components are covered
by a protective film to prevent them
from damage during transport.
 Please remove this film before installing the housing components. It
can be peeled off easily without any
additional tools.

 Draw two intersecting lines on the
ceiling.
– Place a section of the exhaust ducting in the ceiling and feed it down
through the cross-sectional area as
illustrated. Exhaust ducting of approx. 27 ⁹/₁₆" (700 mm) length is required between the ceiling and the
hood exhaust socket.
– Secure the exhaust ducting to the exhaust socket, e.g. with a hose clip
(available as an optional accessory)
on flexible ducting.
 Place the power cord and guide it
through the ceiling in the area shown.
A power cord approx. 27 ⁹/₁₆" (700
mm) in length is required between the
ceiling and the hood connectors.
35
Installation
 Use a knife to release the four spacers and the two covers from the
spacer frame supplied.
 Drill four holes  ³/₈" (10 mm), approx. 4 ¹/₂" (115 mm) deep for the
plugs supplied.
 Use the spacer frame as a drilling
template. Place it on the ceiling with
the arrows pointing forwards. Using
the notches, align the spacer frame
on the intersecting lines and make
pencil marks for the drill holes.
36
 Place the four plugs in the holes and
screw in the four screws so that they
protrude by approx. 1 ³/₁₆" (30 mm).
Installation
The spacer frame can be installed between the chimney and the ceiling. This
creates a shadow which gives the illusion of a gap between the ceiling and
the chimney. This is useful if the ceiling
is not level or is uneven. The hood is
aligned vertically with the spacers supplied. Visual irregularities between the
chimney and the ceiling are then concealed by the shadow.
 Mount the spacer frame onto the installation frame.
 If you wish to install the hood with the
spacer frame, remove the four inserts
from the fixing holes.
37
Installation
 Hang the installation frame on the
four screws. The front of the frame is
marked with a "V".
 If using the spacer frame, place the
two covers into the fixing holes.
38
 Align the installation frame and secure it with the screws.
The spacers, which were removed
from the spacer frame at the start,
can be used to align the hood vertically.
Installation
 Holding the installation frame securely, remove the two fixing screws
and extend the installation frame to
its maximum length.
 Replace the screws.

– with the recirculation grilles at the
bottom for vented mode (AE),
– with the recirculation grilles at the top
for recirculation mode (RM).
 Bend the two retaining tabs outwards
to prevent the telescopic chimney
from slipping down again.
40
Installation
 Fit the four telescopic chimney
clamps. When the screws are tightened, the clamps spread out and
push the telescopic expansion piece
upwards.
 Bend back the two retaining tabs.
 Push the chimney over the telescopic
chimney and bend the retaining tabs
outwards again to prevent the chimney from slipping down again.
Tighten the screws only until the top
edge of the telescopic chimney is
evenly aligned with the ceiling or the
spacer frame.
41
Installation
A non-return flap is supplied with the
hood or is already fitted in the exhaust
socket of the motor unit (depending on
model).
 With vented mode (AE) insert the
non-return flap in the exhaust socket
if your ducting system is not
equipped with one.
Recirculation mode (RM) does not require the non-return flap to be inserted. If there is one present, it
should be removed.
 Hang the hood on the brackets, making sure that the controls are at the
front.
 Secure the hood with the screws
supplied.
42
Installation
 Connect the power cord. See "Electrical connection."
 Unscrew both screws from the installation frame again.
 Place the exhaust ducting onto the

The canopy can now be adjusted to the
desired height, observing the permissible height ranges:
– With vented mode: upwards as far as
it will go, downwards only to the "A"
marking.
– With recirculation mode: upwards as
far as the "U", downwards as far as it
will go.
Follow the instructions in "Appliance
dimensions." Safety distances between the cooktop and ventilation
hood must be observed.
43
Installation
 Raise the canopy to the desired
height and secure it with the screws.
 Hold the chimney securely, bend
back the retaining tabs and carefully
lower it.
The chimney will locate in the cut-out in
the canopy.
44

 With recirculation mode (RM) ventilation hoods, insert the OdorFree Charcoal Filter.
 Remove the grease filters from the
hood.
 Insert the safety screw on the inside.
 Carefully remove the protective foil
from the grease filters.
 Reinsert the grease filters.
45
Exhaust duct
WARNING: Danger of toxic fumes.
Gas cooking appliances release carbon monoxide that can be harmful or
fatal if inhaled.
To reduce the risk of fire and to properly exhaust air, the exhaust gases
extracted by the hood should be
vented outside of the building only.
Do not vent exhaust air into spaces
within walls or ceilings or in attics,
crawl spaces or garages.
To reduce the risk of fire, only use
metal ductwork.
Please read and follow the "IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS" to
reduce the risk of personal injury.
Follow all local building codes when
installing the hood.
 Only use smooth pipes or flexible
duct hoses made from nonflammable materials for exhaust ductwork.
 To achieve the greatest possible air
extraction with the lowest noise levels, please note the following:
– The diameter of the exhaust duct
should not be less than 6" (150 mm).
– If flat exhaust ducts are used, the
cross section should not be smaller
than that of the exhaust connector.
– The exhaust duct should be as short
and straight as possible.
– If elbows are needed, make sure they
have a large radius.
– The exhaust duct itself must not be
kinked or compressed.
– Make sure that all connections are
secure and airtight.
46
Remember that any constriction of
the airflow will reduce extraction performance and increase operating
noise.
 If the exhaust duct is to be routed
through an outside wall, we recommend installing a telescopic wall vent
or a rooftop vent (available as an optional accessory).
 If the exhaust air is to be conducted
into a vent flue, the intake piece must
be aligned with the flow direction of
the flue.
 When installing the exhaust duct horizontally, you must slope it away from
the source by at least ³/₈" per
3' 3" (1 cm per meter). This ensures
that condensate cannot drain back
into the ventilation hood.
 If the exhaust duct is to be routed
through rooms, ceiling space etc., the
temperatures in these different areas
may differ greatly, which means that
the problem of condensation will
need to be addressed. The exhaust
duct will need to be insulated.
Exhaust duct
Condensate trap
In addition to insulating the exhaust
duct, we recommend installing a condensate trap to collect and evaporate
any condensate which might accumulate.
Condensate traps are available for exhaust ducts with a diameter of
5" (125 mm) or 6" (150 mm).
 When installing a condensate trap,
make sure that it is positioned vertically and, if possible, directly above
the hood outlet duct collar.
The arrow on the housing indicates
the direction of airflow.
