Safety and warnings
Please read the entire set of instructions before installing the wall canopy.
This wall canopy is not intended for use by young children or infirm persons without supervision.
Young children should be supervised to ensure that they do not play with the wall canopy.
There must be adequate ventilation of the room when the wall canopy is used at the same time
as appliances burning gas or other fuels. (A partial vacuum in the room could result in too high a
concentration of gas in the air).
You must read the details concerning the method and frequency of cleaning.
There is a fire risk if cleaning is not carried out in accordance with the instructions.
Do not flambé under the wall canopy.
Exhaust air must not be discharged into an existing flue that is used for exhausting fumes from
appliances burning gas or other fuels.
The minimum distance between the cooktop surface and the filters of the wall canopy shall be
600 mm, or 650 mm if installed over a gas cooktop.
Attention should be given to ensure that any applicable regulations concerning the discharge of
exhaust air is fulfilled.
If the supply cord of this equipment is damaged it must only be replaced by the manufacturer, its
service agent or similarly qualified person in order to avoid a hazard.
Always switch the power off prior to installation, servicing or cleaning the wall canopy.
Never use the wall canopy without the filters in place.
A power outlet should be within 750 mm of the motor assembly and can be either on the wall,
behind the chimney or in the ceiling.
To comply with electrical safety regulations, this canopy must be plugged into a socket near the
appliance. The socket must be accessible, or have an accessible isolating switch, to enable the end
user to isolate the canopy from the power for the purpose of internal cleaning or maintenance.
Ducting accessories are not supplied. All ducting must comply with local requirements and
building codes.
Electrical Shock Hazard
All electrical work must be done in accordance with local and/or national
electrical codes as applicable. For safety, this product must be earthed. If
you are unfamiliar with methods of installing electrical wiring, employ the
services of a qualified electrician. Turn off power at service entrance before
installing wiring or servicing this product.
Weight Hazard
The wall canopy is heavy. Please ensure adequate care is taken when installing
the wall canopy to prevent personal injury. The wall canopy must be installed
onto a solid wall, stud, beam or truss. Weight of the product is 8.8 kg/10.7 kg.

Installation instructions
Height of wall canopy
Where an electric cooktop is installed beneath the wall canopy, the distance between the top
of the cooktop and the underside of the range hood must be a minimum of 600 mm and a
maximum of 700 mm.
Where a gas fuelled cooktop is installed beneath the wall canopy, the distance between the
top of the pot rests and the underside of the rangehood must be a minimum of 650 mm and a
maximum of 750 mm.
Note: your relevant gas or local building authority may specify different height requirements.
Care should be taken to comply with any applicable regulations concerning the discharge of
exhaust air.
Ducting options
Note: if you wish to have the flue run all the way to the ceiling, please ensure that you work your
measurements out fully before attempting the installation. In some instances, extra lengths of
flue or a customised flue maybe required. A 740 mm flue extension is available as an accessory
part for use where ceiling height is above 2440 mm. (Part no. 790698)
For recirculation, please purchase charcoal filters, which are fitted in place of the aluminium
filters supplied with the hood. The charcoal filters purify the air before allowing the air to return
back to the kitchen through the air vents in the sides of the chimney flue.
Note: a ducting hole is not required in the wall or ceiling if the canopy is fitted with
charcoal filters.
For ducted installation, it is recommended that you use 150 mm diameter, rigid or semi-rigid
ducting. To accommodate the 150 mm ducting, a ceiling hole should be carefully measured and
cut out, 160 mm (min) in diameter, with a centre line 100 mm from the edge of the wall.
Efficiencies in the performance of your canopy are enhanced by the use of smooth, straight and
short ducting options.
We recommend using solid, galvanised or plastic, smooth-walled ducting which helps to reduce
noise and increase airflow.
The use of flexible ducting is not recommended. If there is no other option available, the flexible
ducting must be pulled as tight as possible.
All ducting must comply with local requirements and building codes.
Note: we recommend an Easy Fit by Fisher & Paykel or a UNIDUCT ducting system, products that
have been designed to expel air efficiently.
Installation instructions
Preparing the wall canopy for installation
Before installing the wall canopy, please carefully read through the installation instructions
in full.
Prior to drilling any holes, check that the area behind the surface to be drilled is clear of any
electrical cables or pipes etc.
Take care when installing the wall canopy as stainless steel is easily damaged during installation
if scratched or knocked by tools.
Protect the cooktop below, using cardboard or a similar protective cover, to prevent damage
on installation.
Installation instructions
Establish the desired height of the
rangehood above the benchtop according
to the ‘Installation height requirements’
above. Measure this distance from the top of
the benchtop and, using a spirit level, draw
a light horizontal line on the wall. Make sure
that the line can easily be erased or will be
hidden after installation. This is where the
bottom of the rangehood will sit (Fig.2).
Mark the position of the rangehood on
the wall. Using a spirit level, also mark a
vertical line intersecting the horizontal
line, (ensuring that the line can easily be
erased or will be hidden after installation)
showing the position where the centre of
the rangehood will be. This is normally over
the centre of the cooktop (Fig.3).
Remove the grease filters (this is to make
installation easier). Press inward on the
catch, found on the handle, and pull the
filter downward (Fig.4).
Determine location of the fixing “keyholes”
on the wall. The hood is secured to the wall
by two “keyholes” located above the motor
behind the air exit opening. From the point
where the horizontal and vertical lines
drawn earlier intercept, use a spirit level
and pencil and draw another horizontal
line 290mm above the first horizontal line
(ensuring that the line can easily be erased
or the line will be hidden after installation)
as shown in Fig.5. This now indicates where
the top of the “fixing keyholes” are.
Where the vertical line meets the top
horizontal line (just drawn), measure and
mark both sides of the vertical line, showing
where to drill.
60 – 75 cm

Installation instructions
Drill holes and secure the rangehood to the
wall. Depending on the wall type (concrete,
drywall etc) drill/screw appropriate fittings in
the two locations just marked. The rangehood
should now be able to be hung on these bolts/
screws through the two keyholes in the hood.
Create additional means of attachment.
Keyholes alone are insufficient means of
attachment. Drill two extra holes in the back
panel, put screws in with an anchor (if required)
to ensure proper attachment and fix the
rangehood by these screws as well, as shown in
Fig.6. Ensure all fixings are secure.
290 mm
Fig.5 Determining location of the two fixing “keyholes”
If ducting externally, assemble and fit ducting
as per manufacturer’s instruction.
Optional: If desired, the one-way butterfly valve
can now be fitted to the exit opening of the
rangehood by simply snapping the two pieces
into place.
Test the operation of the rangehood. Plug the
rangehood in and test its operation on all speed
levels. This will ensure that any imperfections
in the installation, such as unwanted sounds or
lack of suction can be addressed before the flue
is in place. Over 95% of service calls are a result
of faulty installation. Please be aware that in the
event of a service call for a faulty installation,
you will be charged as this is not covered under
the manufacturer’s warranty.
Fig.6 Creating additional means of attachment
Position and secure the flue. Secure the top mounting bracket at the highest possible point on
the ceiling using a single screw through the supplied bracket.
Ensure all ducting is fitted and electrical connections are secured correctly and switched on.
Place the bottom part of the flue onto the rangehood and slide the upper flue piece inside the
lower piece so the tabs “hug” the folded edge of the flue.
Raise the upper part of the flue to the required height and, using the four screws supplied, secure
the upper flue to the bracket on the wall.
Installation is now complete.

Cleaning and maintenance
Never use abrasive or oil based liquid cleaners.
General maintenance
The manufacturer is not liable for any damage caused by not following these instructions.
The wall canopy should be cleaned regularly using warm water with soap or mild liquid
detergents. This ensures that no build-up of grease occurs as these deposits are corrosive.
Do not use abrasives or harsh detergents/cleaning fluids.
Note: in areas of high humidity and coastal environments cleaning should be carried out frequently.
Grease deposit container
Your wall canopy is fitted with a clear container located underneath the motor housing, that is
only visible when the grease filters are removed.
Over time, oil, fat and grease, that is normally deposited inside the motor casing, is directed into
this container for easy cleaning.
This unique design will help ensure your wall canopy remains in peak condition by minimising
the amount of fat or grease collected in the motor.
This container should be cleaned as necessary, usually on an annual basis.
Always ensure the container is in place prior to using the wall canopy.
Do not attempt to block the hole in the motor casing.
Aluminium filters
The grease filters must be periodically cleaned (at least every two months).
Remove the grease filters and wash them either by hand using hot soapy water or place them in
the dishwasher using mild detergent. Badly smoked filters may be cleaned with “cookware cleaners”.
Note: some discolouration of the frame may occur.
Charcoal filters
Charcoal filters are designed to remove grease and odours from cooking vapours, prior to the
cleansed air re-entering the kitchen (when the wall canopy is in recirculating mode). Charcoal
filters are disposable items and it is recommended that these should be replaced every three
to six months depending on use.
Fully saturated charcoal filters can become a barrier to air movement, impeding the wall
canopy’s performance.
In the event of fire, fully grease laden filters could be flammable and therefore regular
replacement is recommended.
In ducted installations, conventional aluminium filters are recommended.
For replacement charcoal filters, ducting accessories, spare parts and service, please contact your
local supplier or Fisher & Paykel Customer Care Centre.
Cleaning and maintenance
Light bulb replacement
(Screw-in 230V/Max 25W)
Switch off the power to the wall canopy.
Remove the aluminium mesh filters (or charcoal filters if fitted).
Unscrew the old bulb, and screw in the new replacement bulb.
Refit aluminium mesh, or charcoal filters.
