Safety warnings
For the user
• The cooker hood is designed to extract unpleasant odours from the
kitchen, it will not extract steam.
• Always cover lighted elements, to prevent excess heat from
damaging the appliance. In the case of oil, gas and coal fired
cookers it is essential to avoid open flames.
• Also, when frying, keep the deep frying pan on the cooker top/
cooker under careful control.
• The hot oil in the frying pan might ignite due to overheating.
• The risk of self-ignition increases when the oil being used is dirty.
• It is extremely important to note that overheating can cause a fire.
• Never carry out any flambé cooking under the hood.
• Always disconnect the unit from the power supply before
carrying out any work on the hood, including replacing the
light bulb (take the cartridge fuse out of the fuse holder or switch
off the automatic circuit breaker).
• It is very important to clean the hood and replace the filter at
the recommended intervals. Failure to do so could cause
grease deposits to build up, resulting in a fire hazard.
For the installer
• When used as an extractor unit, the hood must be fitted with a
150mm diameter hose.
• Should there already be a pipe of diameter 125 mm that ducts to
the outside through the walls or roof, it is possible to use the 150/
125 mm reduction flange provided. In this case the hood will be
slightly more noisy.
• When installing the hood, make sure you respect the following
minimum distance from the top edge of the cooking hob/ring
electric cookers
650 mm
gas cookers
750 mm
coal and oil cookers
800 mm min.
• The national standard on fuel-burning systems specifies a maximum depression of 0.04 bar in such rooms.
• The air outlet must not be connected to chimney flues or combustion gas ducts. The air outlet must under no circumstances be
connected to ventilation ducts for rooms in which fuel-burning
appliances are installed.
• It is advisable to apply for authorization from the relevant controlling
authority when connecting the outlet to an unused chimney flue or
combustion gas duct.
The air outlet installation must comply with the regulations laid down
by the relevant authorities.
• When the unit is used in its extractor version, a sufficiently large
ventilation hole must be provided, with dimensions that are
approximately the same as the outlet hole.
• National and regional building regulations impose a number of
restrictions on using hoods and fuel-burning appliances connected
to a chimney, such as coal or oil room-heaters and gas fires, in the
same room.
• Hoods can only be used safely with appliances connected to a
chimney if the room and/or flat (air/environment combination) is
ventilated from outside using a suitable ventilation hole approximately 500-600 cm2 large to avoid the possibility of a depression
being created during operation of the hood.
• If you have any doubts, contact the relevant controlling authority or
building inspector’s office.
• Since the rule for rooms with fuel burning appliances is “outlet hole
of the same size as the ventilation hole”, a hole of 500-600 cm2,
which is to say a larger hole, could reduce the performance of the
extractor hood.
• If the hood is used in its filtering function, it will operate simply and
safely in the above conditions without the need for any of the
aforementioned measures.
• When the hood is used in its extractor function, the following rules
must be followed to obtain optimal operation:
— short and straight outlet hose
— keep bends in outlet hose to a minimum
— never install the hoses with an acute angle, they must
always follow a gentle curve only
— keep the hose as large as possible (preferably the same
diameter as the outlet hole).
• Failure to observe these basic instructions will drastically reduce the
performance and increase the noise levels of the extractor hood.
Description of the Appliance
• The cooker hood is designed to extract unpleasant odours from the
kitchen, it will not extract steam.
• The hood is supplied as a filter unit (with charcoal filter already
supplied and fitted) and can also be used with an extractor function
function by removing the charcoal filter.
Extractor version
• The air is discharged to the outside through a pipe, which must be
fitted to connection flange D. Fig. 1.
• Remove the grease filters and remove the Charcoal Filter K from its
housing by unscrewing the two screws that fix it to the hood. Refit
the grease filters. Fig. 2.
• In order to obtain the best performance the hose should have a
diameter equal to the outlet hole.
Should there already be a pipe of diameter 125 mm that ducts to
the outside through the walls or roof, it is possible to use the 150/
125 mm reduction flange provided. In this case the hood will be
slightly more noisy.

Fig. 2
Filter Version
• The air is filtered through an AEG charcoal filter and returned to the
kitchen through the top grill of the outlet pipe.
• You will need an original AEG charcoal filter for the filtering function.
• Fix the deflector E using 2 screws Ø 3,5x6.5 mm. Fig. 3.
• Fix the connection flange G using 2 screws Ø 3,5x6.5 mm. Fig. 3.
Fig. 3
Hood Operation
• Best results are obtained by using a low speed for normal
conditions and high speed when odours are more concentrated.
Turn the hood on a few minutes before you start cooking then you
will get an underpressure in the kitchen. It should be left on after
cooking for about 15 minutes or until all odours have disappeared.
The hood operation may be controlled via the control switches or
with the remote control
The control switches are located on lower side of the chimney.

• Disconnect the hood from the mains.
• Reconnect the hood to the mains.
• Repeat the procedure described on paragraph “Setting the remote
Follow this procedure whenever the remote control doesn’t work for
any apparent reason (e.g.: dead battery).
Maintenance and care
• The hood must always be disconnected from the electricity
supply before beginning any maintenance work.
• Never insert pointed objects in the motor’s protective grid.
• Wash the outside surfaces using a delicate detergent solution.
Never use caustic detergents or abrasive brushes or powders.
• Only ever clean the switch panel and filter grille using a damp cloth
and delicate detergents.
• It is extremely important to clean the unit and change the filters at
the recommended intervals. Failure to do so will cause grease
deposits to build up that could constitute a fire hazard.
Metal grease filter
• The purpose of the grease filters is to aspirate grease particles
which form during cooking and it must always be used, either in the
external evacuation or internal recycling function.
Attention: the metal grease filters must be removed and washed,
either by hand or in the dishwasher, every four weeks.
Open the metal grease filter
• First, push both metal grease filter handles towards the centre, then
extract the filter M, pulling downwards. Fig. 4.
Repeat the steps with the second filter.
Hand washing
Soak grease filters for about one hour in hot water with a greaseloosening cleaner, then rinse off thoroughly with hot water. Repeat
the process if necessary. Refit the grease filters when they are dry.
Place grease filters in the dishwasher. Select most powerful
washing programme and highest temperature, at least 65°C.
Repeat the process. Refit the grease filters when they are dry.
When washing the metal grease filter in the dishwasher a slight
discolouration of the filter can occur, this does not have any impact
on its performance.
• Clean the inner housing using a hot detergent solution only (never
use caustic detergents, abrasive powders or brushes).
