Functional description
The ventilation hood works by air
extraction. The air is drawn in and
cleaned by the grease filter and
directed outside.
The hood comes equipped with a
non-return flap. This flap automatically
closes when the hood is turned off so
that no exchange of outside air and
room air can occur. When the hood is
turned on, the air pressure of the
exhaust fan automatically opens the
flap blowing the inside air and cooking
odors outside.

Air extraction
Danger of toxic fumes.
Gas cooking appliances release
carbon monoxide that can be
harmful or fatal if inhaled.
The exhaust gases extracted by
the hood should be vented
outside of the building only.
Do not terminate the exhaust
ducts in attics, garages,
crawlspaces, etc.
To reduce the risk of fire, only use
metal ductwork.
Please read and follow the
INSTRUCTIONS" to reduce the risk of
personal injury. Follow all local building
codes when installing the hood.
Exhaust ducting and connections
– The ducting should be as short and
straight as possible, and the number
of sharp bends should be minimized.
– For most efficient air extraction, the
diameter of the ductwork should not
be less than 6" (150 mm). Use of flat
ducts also reduces the air extraction
– Noise levels of the hood will increase
if flat ducts or round ducts of less
than 6" (150 mm) in diameter are
– Use smooth or flexible pipes made
from approved non-flammable
materials for exhaust ducting.
– Where the ductwork is horizontal, it
must slope away from the hood at
least 1/8" per foot (1 cm per meter) to
prevent condensation dripping into
the appliance.
– If the exhaust is ducted through an
outside wall, a Miele Telescopic Wall
Vent can be used.
