Cleaning your Baumatic cooker hood
IMPORTANT:
BEFORE
CLEANING,
ALWAYS
ENSURE THAT YOU HAVE SWITCHED YOUR
COOKER HOOD OFF AT THE OMNI-POLAR
SWITCH, SET AT THE WALL FROM THE CABLE.
Cleaning
o Clean the external parts of your cooker hood with mild liquid
detergent and a new damp cloth.
o Never use abrasive powder, corrosive solvents or brushes.
o Never insert pointed objects into the motor’s protective grid.
o Only clean the control panel and grease filter grill with mild liquid
detergents and a new damp cloth.
o If you are using the appliance in recirculation mode, then be
sure to replace the carbon filter at the recommended interval
(see section on “Fitting the carbon filter”). A build up of grease
could cause a fire hazard.
o Never attempt to clean the area above the grease filters.
o IMPORTANT: You should regularly use a good quality
stainless steel cleaner to maintain the shine and finish on
the stainless steel areas of your cooker hood.
o This will help to leave a silicone water-resistant film to protect
the stainless steel surfaces and keep them in good condition for
the life of the product.
13
The grease filter
o Your cooker hood includes a grease filter which helps to absorb
grease particles to protect your kitchen and furniture from
greasy residues.
o This aluminium filter may become inflammable if it becomes
saturated with this greasy residue.
o To prevent this fire hazard, the filter should be cleaned regularly.
Depending on use, this should be done every 10-15 days or at
least once a month, using hot water and normal washing-up
detergent.
o DO NOT WASH THE GREASE FILTER IN A DISHWASHER.
Maintenance
Removing and cleaning the grease filter
o First remove the grease filter by
pulling down on the handle and
pulling it away from the cooker
hood.
14
o Soak the grease filter in hot water and washing up liquid for at
least 3 minutes. Then use a soft brush to loosen any grease
deposits that have formed.
o Rinse the grease filter off thoroughly with hot water.
o Repeat the process if required.
o Refit the grease filter once it has
dried.
o IMPORTANT: Let the grease
filter dry thoroughly before
refitting it in the cooker hood.
15
Changing a light bulb
IMPORTANT: BEFORE ATTEMPTING TO CHANGE
A LIGHT BULB, YOU MUST ENSURE THAT YOU
HAVE DISCONNECTED THE COOKER HOOD FROM
YOUR MAINS SUPPLY.
o Prior to touching the light bulbs ensure that they have cooled
down.
o Find the bulb that requires replacement, you will find it located in
the light fixture which is inside the exposed section of the

o Use a screwdriver to remove the glass cover that sits over the
bulb. Unplug the light bulb that needs to be replaced and insert a
new G4 20W (max) bulb. Then replace the glass cover.
o IMPORTANT: Defective bulbs should be replaced immediately.
16
o If the lights still do not work, make sure that the bulbs are fitted
properly into their housings before you call for technical
assistance.
Fitting the carbon filters
If the appliance is to be used in recirculation mode then it is necessary
to fit carbon filters. This will help to absorb unpleasant odours caused
by cooking.
IMPORTANT: BEFORE ATTEMPTING TO FIT OR
REMOVE THE CARBON FILTERS, YOU MUST
ENSURE THAT YOU HAVE DISCONNECTED THE
COOKER HOOD FROM YOUR MAINS SUPPLY.
1) Remove the grease filters (as described
previously).
2) Hook the carbon filter over
the pins that are located at the
end of the motor.
3) Turn the carbon filter anticlockwise,
until you feel it click into place.
o Repeat this process for the
second carbon filter. You need to
place a carbon filter at either end
of the motor.
o Refit the grease filters.
o The carbon filters should be
replaced every 3 - 6 months or if they show signs of damage.
17
Installation
IMPORTANT: Before installation and usage read
all the instructions and make sure that the
voltage (V) and the frequency (Hz) indicated on
the rating plate are exactly the same as the
voltage and frequency in your home. The rating
plate can be found behind the grease filters.
The manufacturer declines all responsibility in the event of the installer
failing to observe all the accident prevention regulations in force,
which are necessary for normal use and the regular operation of the
electric system.
Electrical connection
YOUR COOKER HOOD IS INTENDED FOR FITTED AND
PERMANENT INSTALLATION.
o The cooker hood’s power cable must be fitted upstream from the
electrical connection, using an omni-polar switch with a contact
distance of at least 3 mm. THE FUSE MUST BE RATED AT 5
AMPS.
WARNING: THIS APPLIANCE MUST BE EARTHED. It
should only be connected by a competent person, using
fixed wiring via a double pole switched fused spur outlet.
(UK ONLY).
We recommend that the appliance is connected by a qualified
electrician, who is a member of the N.I.C.E.I.C. and who will comply
with the I.E.E. and local regulations. The wires in the mains lead are
coloured in accordance with the following UK code:
18
Blue = Neutral, Brown = Live, Green/Yellow = Ground
If you only find two wires in the main’s lead (blue and brown),
then neither must be connected to the earth terminal.
o As the colours of the wires in the appliance’s mains lead may not
correspond with the coloured markings identifying the terminals
in your spur box, please proceed as follows:
o The blue wire must be connected to the
terminal marked “N” (neutral), or coloured
black.
o The brown wire must be connected to the
terminal marked “L” (live), or coloured red.
Before beginning installation
o Check that the product purchased is of a suitable size for the
chosen installation area. In addition check whether there is an
electrical socket available that will be accessible once the hood is
mounted. If the product is going to be used in extraction mode,
then there should also be space to connect a ducting hose to the
outside.
o Carry out all necessary masonry work prior to the fitting of the
cooker hood.
o Ensure that all electrical connections are carried out by a suitably
qualified person.
o Before commencing installation of the cooker hood the grease
filter should be removed.
o Check inside the product and ensure that there is no transit
packaging or any other materials, such as packets of screws,
guarantees etc. These should be removed and kept for future
use.
o If possible, disconnect and move freestanding or slot-in cookers
from their position, to provide easier access to the rear wall and
ceiling. If this is not possible, then a thick, protective covering
should be placed over the worktop, hob top or cooker. This will
help to protect these surfaces from damage and debris.
o Select a flat surface for assembling the cooker hood. Cover that
surface with a protective covering and place all cooker hood
parts and fittings on it.
19
o In addition check whether there is an electrical socket available,
which will be accessible after the hood is mounted. If you are
going to use the appliance in extractor mode, you should also
ensure that there is space to connect a fumes discharge device
to the outside.
o Rawl plugs are provided to secure the hood to most types of
walls and ceilings. However a qualified technician must verify the
suitability of the materials, in accordance with the type of wall
and ceiling. The wall and ceiling must be strong enough to take
the weight of the hood.
o Do not tile, grout or silicone this appliance to the wall. This
appliance is designed to be surface mounted only.
Extraction mode or recirculation mode?
IMPORTANT: YOU WILL HAVE TO DECIDE BEFORE
INSTALLING YOUR COOKER HOOD WHETHER TO USE
IT IN EXTRACTION MODE OR RECIRCULATION
MODE.
What is the difference between extraction and recirculation
modes?
In extraction mode, the stale air will be taken out of the room via
external ducting.
In recirculation mode stale air is taken via the grease filters and
passed through a charcoal filter for purification. The air then re-enters
the kitchen via an opening in the hood.
For optimum performance, we recommend that the cooker hood is
used in extraction mode and connected to external ducting.
Unfortunately if you live in a flat or the hood is too far from an outside
wall, this may not be possible. The only alternative is to recirculate the
air.
Do I need a charcoal filter?
All cooker hoods have grease filters but if you are using your cooker
hood in recirculation mode, then a charcoal filter must be fitted in
addition to the grease filters.
20
Installing your cooker hood
o We recommend that at least two people install
this hood.
o Please note that the styles of cooker hood
shown in the line drawings in the following
pages are sometimes different to the shape of the
BH6BGL. However the installation method shown is
correct and MUST be followed.
IMPORTANT: YOUR COOKER HOOD SHOULD BE CONNECTED TO
YOUR MAINS SUPPLY AFTER THE REST OF THE INSTALLATION
PROCESS HAS BEEN COMPLETED.
1) Remove the grease
previously described).

(as
2) Locate the hook at the back of the glass panel. Use this to hang the
glass at the front of the hood. Screw a ST4*8 screw from inside the
hood to secure the glass.
WARNING: Ensure the screw is fully tightened and the glass is
firmly attached before continuing with the installation.
2) Position the hood against the wall that you are intending to install it
on and mark the position of the screw holes that are to be drilled.
21
PLEASE NOTE: The cooker hood should be placed at a minimum
distance of 70 cm from the cooking surface below.
3) Drill the screw holes in the wall on the positions that you have
marked in step 2. Insert rawl plugs into all of the holes that you have
drilled and then fasten the support screws halfway in, leaving them 10
mm out of the wall.
4) Hang the hood onto the support screws and fully tighten the
screws.
22
5) Screw the anchoring screws through the relevant holes in the
cooker hood. Fully tighten the anchoring screws into the wall.
Connecting to external ducting
o Connect the coupling to the top of the cooker hood, and then
connect a 125 mm ducting hose to the coupling (please note that
the ducting hose is not supplied with the appliance).
o The other end of the ducting hose should be connected to a
discharge outlet that is suitable for cooking vapours. It should
have a cross section of at least 150 cm².
o The maximum distance between the coupling and your discharge
outlet should be 3 metres, with one 90 degree bend. For each
additional 90 degree bend, the maximum distance is reduced by
a further metre.
Completing the installation
o If you are setting the appliance to recirculation mode, then you
should now fit the two carbon filters. See the “Fitting the carbon
filters” section on page 17.
o The electrical connection must correspond to the electrical
requirement noted on the rating plate, which is placed inside the
cooker hood. The appliance should now be connected to the
electrical supply. See page 18-19 for detailed information on the
electrical connection.
o Use a stainless steel cleaner and polish on the stainless steel
sections of the appliance.
o Refit the grease filters and then switch on the mains
