Safety warnings
for user
• 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, causing a fire hazard.
for kitchen unit 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

700 mm min.
• The national decree 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 rules will drastically reduce the
performance and increase the noise levels of the extractor hood.
Extractor version
• The hood is supplied as an extractor unit and can also be used with
a filtering function by fitting one activated carbon filter (special
• You will need original AEG carbon filter for this function (see Special
• The air is discharged to the outside through a pipe, which must be
fitted to connection flange A. Fig. 1.
• 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. 1
Filter Version
• The air is filtered through an activated charcoal filter and returned to
the kitchen through the top grill of the outlet pipe.
• You will need an original AEG KF20 activated carbon filter for the
filtering function. (See Special Accessories).
• Fix the deflector using 4 screws Ø 3,5x6.5 mm. Fig. 2.
• Optionally, the position of the chimney elements can be changed.
When using the hood in the filter version the chimney must be fixed
at the top, with the air outlet grill at the side.

• The hood is fitted with one motor having several speed. 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 control
switches are located on the unit’s front panel:
Indicator lamp
Light ON/OFF switch
Motor OFF - Speed 1 push-button
Speed 2 push-button
Speed 3 push-button
Maintenance and care
• The hood must always be disconnected from the mains power
supply before beginning any maintenance work.
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 the metal grease filter stop backwards, then extract the
filter, pulling downwards. Fig. 3.
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 it are dry.
Dishwasher machine
Place grease filters in dish washer.
Select most powerful washing
programme and highest temperature,
at least 65°C. Repeat the process.

Refit the grease filters when it are
When washing the metal grease filter in the dishwasher a slight
discoloration 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).
Carbon filter
• The carbon filter should only be used if you want to use the hood in
its filtering function.
• To do this you will need an original AEG activated carbon filter (see
special accessories).
• Cleaning/replacing the carbon filter
Unlike other carbon filters, the LONGLIFE carbon filter can be
cleaned and reactivated. At normal use the filter should be cleaned
every second month. The best way to clean the 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
carbon, the filter should be dried in an oven for 10 minutes with a
temperature of maximum 100º C.
After approximately three years of use, the carbon filter should be
replaced with a new, as the odour reduction capacity will be
• Mounting
Remove the frame b which supports the filter c by unscrewing it
from the hood a, Fig. 4.
Insert the coal mattress inside the frame and put all parts back in
their place.

• Failure to observe the instructions on cleaning the unit and
changing the filters will cause a fire hazard. You are therefore
strongly recommended to follow these instructions.
• The manufacturer declines all responsibility for any damage to the
motor or any fire damage linked to inappropriate maintenance or
failure to observe the above safety recommendations.
