Unlike other charcoal filters, the
LONGLIFE charcoal filter can be
cleaned and reactivated.
With normal use the filter should be
cleaned every second month (when

filter is in the dishwasher. Use normal
detergent and choose the highest
temperature (65º C). Wash the filter
separately so that no food parts gets
stuck on the filter and later causes bad
odours. To reactivate the charcoal, the
filter should be dried in an oven for 10
minutes with a maximum temperature
of 100º C.
After approximately three years of use,
the charcoal filter should be replaced
with a new one, as the odour reduction
capacity will be reduced.

Something Not Working
If your appliance fails to work properly please carry out the following checks.
Symptom
Solution
The cooker hood will not start...
Check that: The hood is connected to
the electricity supply.
Check that a fan speed has been
selected.
The cooker hood is not working
Check that: The fan speed is set high
enough for the task.
The grease filters are clean.
The kitchen is adequately vented to
allow the entry of fresh air.
If set up for recirculation, check that the
charcoal filter is still effective.
If set up for extraction, check that the
ducting and outlets are not blocked.
The cooker hood has switched off
during operation...
The safety cut-out device has been
tripped. Turn off the hob and then wait
for the device to reset. If the hood has
been installed below the heights
indicated in the installation instructions
the motor will cut-out frequently which
will damage the hood.
If after all these checks, the problem persists, contact your local Service Centre,
quoting the model and serial number.
Please note that it will be necessary to provide proof of purchase for any inguarantee service calls.
In-guarantee customers should ensure that the above checks have been made
