first. Press the lock and pull it downward.
Fit the activated charcoal filter onto the side of the motor and turn it in a
clockwise direction. Repeat the same on the other side.

loosen and become dangerous.
- When the charcoal filter is attached, the extraction power may be
slightly reduced.

Care and maintenance
IMPORTANT: Before cleaning or maintenance please switch off the electricity
supply and remove the plug from the wall.
Regular cleaning
Use a soft cloth moistened with lukewarm mildly soapy water or household
cleaning detergent. Never use metal pads, chemicals, abrasive material, abrasive
cleaning creams or stiff brushes to clean the appliance.
Cleaning the grease
grease filter
Clean the filter every month to help minimise the risk of fire.
The filter collects grease, smoke and dust, therefore the filter is directly affecting
the efficiency of the cooker hood. If not cleaned, the grease residue (which is
potentially flammable) will saturate the filter. It can be easily cleaned with warm
water and washing up liquid, alternatively the filters can be cleaned in your
dishwasher. Please ensure no other items are washed with the filters, they must
be washed separately to prevent food becoming trapped in the gauze. Cleaning
the grease filters in the dishwasher may lead to discolouration, this is normal and
is a not a fault with the product.
Replacing your charcoal filter
This only applies if you are using the hood in recirculation mode (not vented to
the outside). The charcoal filter traps your cooking odours and they need to be
replaced, this can vary depending on how frequently the cooker hood is used.
We recommend replacing them at least every 6 months.
