Your new Cooker Hood
Using your new Cooker Hood is very simple. Nevertheless, to get the best results it is
important that you read this handbook thoroughly before installing and using your
appliance for the first time.
Electrical Requirements
Any permanent electrical installation must comply with the latest I.E.E. Regulations and
local electricity company regulations. For your own safety, this should be undertaken by a
qualified electrician eg. your local electricity company or a contractor who is on the roll of
the National Inspection Council for Electrical Installation Contracting (NICEIC).
Please ensure that when the appliance is installed it is easily accessible for the engineer
in the event of a breakdown.
If the Cooker Hood is permanently wired in, it must be via a suitable double pole isolating
switch placed in a readily accessible position adjacent to the unit.
Electrical Connection
Before connecting to the mains supply ensure that the mains voltage corresponds to the
voltage on the rating plate, inside the Cooker Hood.
It is fitted with a 2 core mains supply cable and must be permanently connected to the
electricity supply via a double pole switch having 3mm minimum contact gap on each
pole. A Switched Fuse Connection Unit to BS 1363 Part 4, is a recommended mains supply
connection accessory to ensure compliance with the Safety Requirements applicable to
fixed wiring instructions.
CE marking certifies that this appliance conforms to the following EEC directives:Low Voltage Equipment - 72/23/EEC
Electromagnetic Compatibility - 89/336/EEC

Installing your Cooker Hood
Your new Cooker Hood can be installed either
for recirculation or extraction through an
outside wall. (All fitting supplied)
Installation for Recirculation:
If it is not possible to exhaust to the outside,
the hood can be used to filter and recirculate
the air (Fig.1).
Installation for Extraction:
This method is recommended if at all possible.
Fumes and grease laden air are drawn into the
underside of the hood and expelled outside
the kitchen. The air can be expelled either
upwards through a ventilating shaft (Fig.2) or
directly through a wall to the outside (Fig.3).
Ducting will be required if the Cooker Hood is
mounted away from the outside vent.
Your hood can be fitted with a carbon filter
(optional extra) to remove odours (for fitting,
see page 11).
To check that the Cooker Hood is set up for
recirculation, open the grill panel and make
sure that the conversion lever is in the
recirculation position. The carbon (charcoal)
filter can then be fitted.
NOTE: The hood is more efficient in the
exhaust mode, therefore this position
should be selected during the warmer
months of the year when no heating is
being used. When the room is being
heated, if the recirculation position is
selected heat will not be wasted.
To obtain the best performance it is
advisable to switch on the hood a few
minutes before you start cooking and leave
it running approximately 15 minutes after
IMPORTANT: The exhaust air must not be
expelled through a smoke or waste-gas
chimney which is in use or through a shaft
used for ventilating rooms or into the
cavity of a cavity wall.
If the room contains a flued fuel burning
appliance, such as a gas or oil fired central
heating boiler, which is not of the ‘Balanced
Flue’ type, you should make sure that there
is adequate air inlet into the room at all
times so that fumes from the boiler are not
drawn back into the room by the Cooker
NOTE: All installations must comply with
local authorities and building regulation
requirements for the discharge of exhaust
air into the atmosphere.
Installing your Cooker Hood
Top or Rear Extraction
Connect the ducting material onto the flange:
blank off the aperture which is not required.
The charcoal filter is not required when the
hood is installed in the ducting cycle.
To remove the grille turn the locks (Fig.5 B)
and pull the grille out and downwards.
In order to obtain satisfactory air extraction,
long ducts should not be used. Exhaust pipes
with as smooth an inner wall as possible are
recommended. The ducting MUST be
manufactured from a fire retardant material.
Wall Vent Kit:
For connecting the Hood either directly
through a wall or in conjunction with a
ducting pipe, we recommend the use of a
Wall Vent Kit. A 3m extension pipe is also
available. These may be obtained from your
nearest retailer or the Genuine Parts and
Accessories Mail Order Hotline (see back
cover) and must be used where there is a
cavity wall. Specific installation instructions
are included with the Wall Vent Kit.
NOTE: The Wall Vent Kit has a diameter of
Installing your Cooker Hood
Your Cooker Hood is designed to fit between
two wall cupboards 600mm apart and to take
a door panel measuring 400mm (min) to
600mm (max) in height, to match the adjacent
Mounting Height:
The bottom of the hood should be no less
than 650mm above an electric hob,
750mm above a gas hob or mixed fuel cooker,
400-450mm above a high level grill/top oven.
For the best results, the hood should be
mounted as near as possible to the minimum
recommended height.
WARNING: The fan motor of this appliance
incorporates a thermal cut-out device
which will operate if the hood is installed
below the minimum recommended heights
listed above, or if the motor becomes overheated. If the cut-out device is activated,
switch off the fan motor and allow the
hood to cool.
The cut-out device will reset itself when the
fan motor has cooled significantly.
NOTE: This hood has been designed and
approved for installation over an electric
hob with a maximum input of 7kW or a gas
hob with a maximum input of 10kW when
fitted in accordance with the heights
recommended above.
Mounting between cabinets on the Wall:
The hood may be fixed to any rigid vertical
surface. If the hood can only be fixed to a
hollow construction plaster or partition board
structure, then the wall must be sufficiently
reinforced to enable the hood to be fixed
securely in position.
Ensure that the cupboard is securely fixed to
the wall, then proceed as follows:
Place the template provided on the wall
between the cupboards and drill the holes
Place the wall plugs provided into the drilled
holes (Fig.6).
In cases where the wall plugs provided are
not suitable for the type of wall ie. plaster
board or cavity, appropriate fittings should be
Adjust the position of the upper brackets
(Fig. 7 B). Fit the hood to the hooks by means
of the two brackets B. Ensure that the hood is
at the right height, the height of the hood can
be adjusted with the help of the screws
(Fig.7 S).
The hood can be fitted to the cupboards as
detailed under the heading ‘Fitting the Hood
to the Cupboards’.
in the event that the side cupboards are
considered to be inadequate to support the
weight of the hood, the hood should be fixed
to the wall as well as to the side of the
Installing your Cooker Hood
Fixing the Hood to the Cupboards:
Place the template on the side of the right
cupboard, so that the letter B aligns with the
front part of the cupboard (disregard the
thickness of the door) and drill two holes
2.5mm diameter at points B1 and B2 (Fig. 8).
Replace the visor with decor panel, inserting it
first in the upper slides and then in the lower
slides. Turn the rear locking knobs anti-clockwise until it stops and then mount the grille
by lifting it up - pushing inwards and turn the
locks to secure.
Once the Hood has been fixed, if the cupboards are deeper than the hood, mount
spacer (Fig.11 S) and secure it with the two
screws Fig.11 T) 3.5 x 13 and washers on
the back of the hood.
Place the same template on the side of the
left cupboard ensuring that side C aligns with
the front part of the cupboard (disregard the
thickness of the door) and drill two holes
2.5mm diameter at the point C1 and C2
Fit the hood to the cupboard by means of the
screws (Fig.10 E).
The spacer is reversible to cover a gap from 1
to 4cm.
Installing your Cooker Hood
Fitting the Decor Panel:
The hood is designed to be fully integrated
into the kitchen by fitting a decor panel onto
the visor to match the adjoining kitchen

Filters and their replacement:
THE GREASE FILTER Your Cooker Hood is fitted with a grease filter
which absorbs grease, dust etc. and helps to
keep the appliance clean inside. Gradually the
filter will become saturated with grease.
When this happens the grease filter must be
replaced, usually about every two months
depending on use.
IMPORTANT: There could be a possible fire
hazard if the grease filter is not replaced
when necessary and according to these
Replacement grease filters are available from
your nearest retailer or our Genuine Parts and
Accessories Mail Order Hotline (see back
REPLACING THE GREASE FILTER 1. Pull the visor out as far as it will go.
2. Remove the filter grille by releasing the
two slider catches at each side of the grille.
3. Push the clips to one side and remove.
4. Remove the saturated grease filter when
the stripes become visible through the
5. Place the new grease filter in the filter
6. Replace the retaining clips. Refit the grille
panel into the hood.
THE CARBON FILTER (Recirculation only)
The activated carbon filter absorbs odours
arising from the cooking. In use, the filter will
slowly become saturated and gradually less
effective. The filter will normally require
changing every six months, depending on the
amount and type of cooking you have done.

air flow is away from
the wall to avoid
dirtying or marking
the rear wall .
Place the new carbon filter, ensuring that
points Q and R align (Fig. 18). To lock the filter
turn in the direction of the arrow (Fig.18 S).
The Hood must not be connected to ducting
when in the recirculating mode.
Regular replacement of the charcoal filter will
ensure optimum performance from the hood
when recirculating.
TO REPLACE THE CARBON FILTER Remove the grille by turning the locks and
pull the grille out and downwards.
Remove the saturated carbon filter by rotating
it in an anti-clockwise direction (Fig.19) and
replace it with a new one.
Caring for your Cooker Hood
The exterior of the Cooker Hood should be
cleaned regularly to keep it looking like new.
Wipe over with a soft cloth, wrung out in
warm water and dry with a clean soft cloth.
Wear protective gloves.
You can use mild non-abrasive cleaners but
always read the manufacturer’s instructions
first. Always test their suitability on a small
area of the Cooker Hood not noticeable in
normal use.
NOTE: DO NOT use scouring pads or
abrasive cleaners as they may scratch the
How to replace the light:
