Energy-saving tips
This hood operates in a very efficient
and energy-saving manner. The
following will help you to save even
more energy when using it:
– Ensure that there is sufficient
ventilation in the kitchen when
cooking. If there is insufficient air flow
during vented mode, the hood
cannot operate efficiently, causing
increased operating noise levels.
– Always cook with the lowest possible
setting. This produces fewer cooking
vapors so that you can use a lower
hood power level and therefore
benefit from reduced energy
consumption.
– Check the power level selected on
the hood. A lower power level is
generally sufficient for the majority of
cooking. Only use the booster level
when necessary.
– When a large volume of cooking
vapors are being produced, switch to
a high power level in good time. This
is more efficient than operating the
hood for longer to try to capture
cooking vapors that have already
been distributed throughout the
kitchen.
– Make sure that you switch off the
hood after use.
– Clean or change the filters at regular
intervals. Heavily soiled filters reduce
performance, increase the risk of fire
and are unhygienic.
16
Cleaning and care
WARNING: TO REDUCE THE RISK
OF FIRE, ELECTRIC SHOCK, OR
INJURY TO PERSONS, OBSERVE
THE FOLLOWING:
 Before cleaning or servicing the
hood, disconnect it from the power
supply, see "IMPORTANT SAFETY
INSTRUCTIONS".

17
Cleaning and care
Grease filters and edge
extraction panel
Removing the panel and grease
filters
The edge extraction panel and the
reusable metal grease filters in the
appliance remove solid particles
(grease, dust, etc.) from the kitchen
vapors, preventing soiling of the hood.
 A dirty filter is a fire hazard!
Cleaning intervals
Grease which has collected in the
ventilation hood hardens over time and
makes cleaning more difficult. It is
therefore recommended that the edge
extraction panel and the grease filters
should be cleaned regularly (at least
every 3–4 weeks) to avoid a build-up of
grease.
 The panel is held in place by magnets
at the top. Pull the panel forwards by
the upper edge, unhook it at the
bottom and remove it.
After 30 operating hours, the grease
filter symbol  will light up when the
deflector plate is out to remind you to
clean the edge extraction panel and the
grease filters.
 Open the grease filter retainer catch
and remove the filters.
 If charcoal filters are fitted on the
back of the grease filters, they must
be removed before cleaning (see
"Charcoal filters").
18
Cleaning and care
Cleaning the panel
 Follow the instructions under
"Stainless steel housing."
The panel is not suitable for cleaning
in a dishwasher.
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.
Cleaning the grease filters by hand
After cleaning
 Clean the filters with a soft nylon
brush in a mild solution of hot water
and dish soap. Do not use undiluted
dish soap.
 After cleaning, leave the filters on an
absorbent surface to dry.
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
Cleaning the grease filters in the
dishwasher
 When removing the panel and filters
for cleaning, also clean off any

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.
The exhaust connection depends on
the blower used:
DAG 600 ........................ 6" (150 mm),
DAG 1000: ..................... 10" (254 mm)
Only use smooth pipes or flexible
duct hoses made from noncombustible materials for exhaust
duct.
To achieve the greatest possible air
extraction with the lowest noise levels,
please observe the following:
– The cross-section of the exhaust
duct must not be smaller than the
cross-section of the vent collar (see
appliance dimensions).
– If elbows are needed, make sure they
have a large radius.
– The exhaust duct must not be kinked
or compressed. When selecting the
exhaust duct, ensure that it is rigid
enough to retain its shape during
operation.
– Make sure that all connections are
secure and airtight.
Any constriction of the airflow will
reduce extraction performance and
increase operating noise.
 If the exhaust air is to be ducted into
a flue, the duct must be directed in
the flow direction of the flue.
 When duct is horizontal it must be
laid to slope away at at least ¹/₈ inch
per foot. This is to ensure that
condensate cannot drain back into
the appliance.
 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.
– The exhaust duct should be as short
and straight as possible.
