Operating and installation instructions Fig. 1 GAZ Abb. 1 ELECTRO min. 650 2 min. 550 Instructions for use: Operating modes Exhaust-air mode: Circulating-air mode: ❑ The extractor-hood fan extracts the kitchen vapours and conveys them through the grease filter into the atmosphere. ❑ The grease filter absorbs the solid particles in the kitchen vapours. ❑ The kitchen is kept almost free of grease and odours. D When the extractor hood is operated in exhaust-air mode simultaneously with a different burner which also makes use of the same chimney (such as gas, oil or coal-fired heaters, continuous-flow heaters, hot-water boilers) care must be taken to ensure that there is an adequate supply of fresh air which will be needed by the burner for combustion. Safe operation is possible provided that the underpressure in the room where the burner is installed does not exceed 4 Pa (0.04 mbar). This can be achieved if combustion air can flow through non-lockable openings, e.g. in doors, windows and via the airintake/exhaust-air wall box or by other technical measures, such as reciprocal interlocking, etc. If the air intake is inadequate, there is a risk of poisoning from combustion gases which are drawn back into the room. An air-intake/exhaust-air wall box by itself is no guarantee that the limiting value will not be exceeded. Note: When assessing the overall requirement, the combined ventilation system for the entire household must be taken into consideration. This rule does not apply to the use of cooking appliances, such as hobs and ovens. Unrestricted operation is possible if the extractor hood is used in recirculating mode – with activated carbon filter. ❑ An activated carbon filter must be fitted for this operating mode (see Filters and maintenance). The complete installation set and replacement filters can be obtained from specialist outlets. The corresponding accessory numbers can be found at the end of these operating instructions. ❑ The extractor-hood fan extracts the kitchen vapours which are purified in the grease filter and activated carbon filter and then conveyed back into the kitchen. ❑ The grease filter absorbs the grease particles in the kitchen vapours. ❑ The activated carbon filter binds the odorous substances. If no activated carbon filter is installed, it is not possible to bind the odorous substances in the cooking vapours. 3 Before using for the first time Important notes: ❑ The Instructions for Use apply to several versions of this appliance.

Setting the required fan speed: ❑ Press the corresponding button. Light Lighting: ❑ The light can be switched on at any time, even though the fan is switched off. Fan settings Light 0 Light 6 1 2 Fan settings Intensive setting: ❑ Maximum power is obtained at the intensive setting P. It is only required for short intervals. 3 Fan settings Intensive setting Filters and maintenance Grease filters: Metal filters are used to trap the greasy element of the vapours that develop during cooking. The filter mats are made from noncombustible metal. Caution: As the filter becomes more and more saturated with grease, not only does the risk of it catching fire increase but the efficiency of the extractor hood can also be adversely affected. Important: By cleaning the metal grease filters at appropriate intervals, the possibility of them catching fire as a result of a build-up of heat such as occurs when deep-fat frying or roasting is taking place, is reduced. Cleaning the metal grease filters: ❑ In normal operation (1 to 2 hours daily), the metal grease filter must be cleaned 1 x a month. ❑ The filters can be cleaned in a dishwasher. It is however possible that they will become slightly discoloured. ❑ The filter must be placed loosely, and NOT wedged, in the dishwasher. Important: Metal filters that are saturated with grease should not be washed together with other dishes etc. ❑ When cleaning the filters by hand, soak them in hot soapy water first of all. Do not use aggressive, acidic or caustic cleaners. Then brush the filters clean, rinse them thoroughly and leave the water to drain off. Removing and inserting the metal grease filters: Warning: The halogen bulbs must be switched off and cool. 1. Press the catch on the grease filters inwards and fold the filters down. At the same time take hold of the underside of the grease filters with your other hand. 2. Clean the filters. 3. Insert the clean filters back into the hood. 7 Filters and maintenance Activated carbon filter: For neutralizing odours in recirculating mode. Caution: As the filter becomes more and more saturated with grease, there is an increased risk of fire and the function of the extractor hood may be impaired. Important: Change the activated carbon filter promptly to prevent the risk of fire from the accumulation of heat when deep-fat frying or roasting. Installation and removal: Warning: The halogen bulbs must be switched off and cool. 1. Remove the metal-mesh filters (see "Removing and inserting the metalmesh grease filters"). 2. Insert the activated carbon filter. 3. Engage the catch. 4. Insert the metal grease filters (see "Removing and inserting the metal grease filters"). Replacing the activated carbon filter: ❑ During normal operation (1 to 2 hours per day) the activated carbon filters should be replaced approximately 2 x year. ❑ A replacement filter can be obtained from any authorized dealer (see optional accessories). ❑ Use original filters only. By doing so you will obtain maximum performance from your extractor hood. Disposing of the old activated carbon filter: ❑ There are no pollutants in the activated carbon filters. They can therefore be disposed of as part of your normal domestic refuse. 8 Cleaning and care Isolate the extractor hood by pulling out the mains plug or switching off the fuse. Do not clean the extractor hood with abrasive sponges or with cleaning agents which contain sand, soda, acid or chlorine! ❑ Clean the extractor hood with a hot soap solution or a mild window cleaner. ❑ Do not scrape off dried-on dirt but wipe off with a damp cloth. ❑ When cleaning the grease filters, remove grease deposits from accessible parts of the housing. This prevents the risk of fire and ensures that the extractor hood continues operating at maximum efficiency. Clean the operating buttons with a mild soapy solution and a soft, damp cloth only. Do not use stainless-steel cleaner to clean the operating buttons. Stainless steel surfaces: ❑ Use a mild non-abrasive stainless steel cleaner. ❑ Clean the surface in the same direction as it has been ground and polished. ❑ We recommend our stainless steel cleaner no. 461731. See enclosed service booklet for order address. Aluminium, coated and plastic surfaces: ❑ Do not use dry cloths. ❑ Use a mild window cleaning agent. ❑ Do not use aggressive, acidic or caustic cleaners. Observe the warranty regulations in the enclosed service booklet. 9 Replacing the light bulbs Bulbs: 1. Switch off the extractor hood and pull out the mains plug or switch off the electricity supply at the fuse box. 2. Remove the grease filters (see Filters and Maintenance). 3. Detach the bulb cover. 4. Replace the bulb (commercially available halogen bulb 230 volt, 28 watt, E 14 bulb holder). 5. Attach the lamp cover again. 6. Re-insert the grease filters. 7. Plug the appliance into the mains or switch it on at the fuse box. 10 Halogen bulbs: 1. Switch off the extractor hood and pull out the mains plug or switch off the electricity supply at the fuse box. When switched on, the halogen bulbs become very hot. Even for some time after the bulbs have been switched off there is still a risk of burns. 2. Remove the bulb ring with a screwdriver or similar tool. 3. Replace the halogen light bulb (conventional halogen bulb, 12 Volt, max. 20 Watt, G4 cap). Caution: Refer for plug-in lampholder. Take hold of the bulb with a clean cloth. 4. Re-insert the bulb ring. 5. Plug the appliance into the mains or switch it on at the fuse box.

Valuable raw materials can be reclaimed by recycling old appliances. Before disposing of your old appliance, render it unusable. You received your new appliance in a protective shipping carton. All packaging materials are environmentally friendly and recyclable. Please contribute to a better environment by disposing of packaging materials in an environmentally-friendly manner. Please ask your dealer or inquire at your local authority about current means of disposal. The extractor hood can be used in exhaust air or circulating air mode. The width of the extractor hood must Additional information concerning gas cookers: When installing gas hotplates, comply with the relevant national statutory regulations (e.g. in Germany: Technische Regeln Gasinstallation TRGI). Always comply with the currently valid regulations and installation instructions supplied by the gas appliance manufacturer. Only one side of the extractor hood may be installed next to a high-sided unit or high wall. Gap at least 50 mm. Minimum distance on gas hotplates between the upper edge of the trivet and lower edge of the extractor hood: 650 mm, Fig. 1. correspond to the width of the cooking area. Always mount the extractor hood over the centre of the hob. Minimum distance between electric hob and bottom edge of extractor hood: 550 mm, Fig. 1. The extractor hood must not be installed over a solid fuel cooker – a potential fire hazard (e.g. flying sparks) – unless the cooker features a closed, non-removable cover and all national regulations are observed. The smaller the gap between the extractor hood and hotplates, the greater the likelihood that droplets will form on the underside of the extractor hood. 11 Prior to installation Exhaust-air mode The exhaust air is discharged upwards through a ventilation shaft or directly through the outside wall into the open. D Exhaust air should neither be directed into a smoke or exhaust flue that is currently used for other purposes, nor into a shaft that is used for ventilating rooms in which stoves or fireplaces are also located. Exhaust air may be discharged in accordance with official and statutory regulations only (e.g. national building regulations). Local authority regulations must be observed when discharging air into smoke or exhaust flues that are not otherwise in use. D When the extractor hood is operated in exhaust-air mode simultaneously with a different burner which also makes use of the same chimney (such as gas, oil or coal-fired heaters, continuous-flow heaters, hot-water boilers) care must be taken to ensure that there is an adequate supply of fresh air which will be needed by the burner for combustion. Safe operation is possible provided that the underpressure in the room where the burner is installed does not exceed 4 Pa (0.04 mbar). 12 This can be achieved if combustion air can flow through non-lockable openings, e.g. in doors, windows and via the airintake/exhaust-air wall box or by other technical measures, such as reciprocal interlocking, etc. If the air intake is inadequate, there is a risk of poisoning from combustion gases which are drawn back into the room. An air-intake/exhaust-air wall box by itself is no guarantee that the limiting value will not be exceeded. Note: When assessing the overall requirement, the combined ventilation system for the entire household must be taken into consideration. This rule does not apply to the use of cooking appliances, such as hobs and ovens. Unrestricted operation is possible if the extractor hood is used in recirculating mode – with activated carbon filter. If the exhaust air is going to be discharged into the open, a telescopic wall box should be fitted into the outside wall. Prior to installation For optimum extractor hood efficiency: ❑ Short, smooth air exhaust pipe. ❑ As few bends in the pipe as possible. ❑ Diameter of pipe to be as large as possible and no tight bends in pipe. If long, rough exhaust-air pipes, many pipe bends or smaller pipe diameters are used, the air extraction rate will no longer be at an optimum level and there will be an increase in noise. Connecting a l 150 mm exhaust-air pipe: extractor hoods accepts no liability for complaints which can be attributed to the design and layout of the pipework. Round pipes: We recommend Internal diameter: 150 mm (at least 120 mm). Flat ducts must have an internal crosssection that equates to that of round pipes. There should be no sharp bends. l 120 mm approx. 113 cm2 l 150 mm approx. 177 cm2 If pipes have different diameters: Insert sealing strip. For exhaust-air mode, ensure that there is an adequate supply of fresh air. Connecting a l 120 mm exhaust-air pipe: The manufacturer of the ❑ ❑ ❑ ❑ ❑ Mount the pipe directly onto the air outlet on the hood. If using an aluminium pipe, smooth the connection area beforehand. ❑ Attach the reducing connector directly to the air pipe. ❑ Attach the exhaust-air pipe to the reducing connector. Circulating-air mode ❑ With activated carbon filter if exhaust-air mode is not possible. The complete installation set can be obtained from specialist outlets. The corresponding accessory numbers can be found at the end of these operating instructions. 13 Prior to installation Electrical connection Preparing the wall If you fit your own plug, the colours of these wires may not correspond with the identifying marks on the plug terminals. This is what you have to do: 1. Connect the green and yellow (Earth) wire to the terminal in the plug marked ‘E’ or with the symbol ( ), or coloured green or green and yellow. 2. Connect the blue (Neutral) wire to the terminal in the plug marked ‘N’ or coloured black. 3. Connect the brown (Live) wire to the terminal marked ‘L’, or coloured red. The extractor hood should only be connected to an earthed socket that has been installed according to relevant regulations. If possible, site the earthed socket directly behind the chimney panelling. ❑ The earthed socket should be connected via its own circuit. ❑ If the earthed socket is no longer accessible following installation of the extractor hood, ensure that there is a permanently installed disconnector. If it is necessary to wire the extractor hood directly into the mains: The extractor hood should only be connected to the electricity supply by a properly qualified electrician. A separator must be installed in the household circuit. A suitable separator is a switch that has a contact gap of more than 3 mm and interrupts all poles. Such devices include circuit breakers and contactors. ❑ The wall must be flat and perpendicular. ❑ Make sure that the wall can bear the applied loads. ❑ The provided screws and wall plugs are suitable for solid masonry. On all other wall types (e.g. plasterboard, porous concrete, Poroton bricks) use the appropriate fasteners. ❑ Ensure that the wall is capable of providing a firm hold for mounting screws and plugs.
