• W h e n i n s t a l l i n g t h e c o o ke r h o o d, m a ke s u r e t h at the
following recommended distances between the top of cooker
and the lowest part of the cooker hood are observed:
Coal or oil cookers: 80cm
• Do not install above a cooker with a high level grill.
• Make sure the ducting has no bends sharper than 90
degrees as this will reduce the efficiency of the cooker hood.
• Pay attention to the sharp edges inside the cooker hood
• Regularly check the power cord for damage. If the
supply cord is damaged, it must be replaced by the
manufacturer, its service agent or similarly qualified persons
in order to avoid a hazard.
• The appliance must be placed in such a way, that the power
supply is accessible at all times.
• Before connecting the appliance to the power supply, check
that the power supply voltage and current rating corresponds
with the power supply details shown on the appliance rating
• Never use a damaged appliance! Disconnect the appliance
from the wall outlet and contact your supplier if it is damaged.
Danger of electric shock!
Do not attempt to repair the
appliance yourself. In case of malfunction, repairs are to be
conducted by qualified personnel only.
• To avoid damaging the cord, do not squeeze, bend or chafe
it on sharp edges. Keep it away from hot surfaces and open
flames as well.
• Lay out the cord in such a way that no unintentional pulling
or tripping over it is possible.
• Do not open the appliance casing under any circumstances.
Do not insert any foreign objects into the inside of the casing.
• Never use accessories which are not recommended by the
manufacturer. They could pose a safety risk to the user and
might damage the appliance. Only use original parts and
• Keep the appliance away from any hot surfaces and open
flames. Always operate the appliance on a level, stable,
clean and dry surface. Protect the appliance against heat,
dust, direct sunlight, moisture, dripping and splashing water.
• Do not place heavy objects on top of the appliance. Do not
place objects with open flames, e.g. candles, on top of or
beside the appliance. Do not place objects filled with water,
e.g. vases on or near the appliance.
• This appliance is not intended for use by persons (including
c h i l d r e n) w i t h r e d u c e d p h y s i c a l , s e n s o r y, o r m e n t a
l capabilities, or by those who lack experience and knowledge,
unless they have been given super vision and instruction
concerning the use of the appliance by a person responsible
for their safety.
• Always put lids on pots and pans when cooking on a gas
Danger of fire!
• Do not flambé under the cooker hood.
• Do not leave frying pans unattended during
use because overheated fats or oils might catch fire.
• Never leave naked flames under the cooker hood.
• Only fry underneath the cooker hood when you are
in the kitchen.
• Do not use the cooker hood without the
grease filters, or if the filters are excessively greasy!
Accessible parts may become hot when
used with cooking appliances.
• During exhaust operation, the cooker hood removes air from
a room. If other fire sources that require the surrounding air
for combustion are being operated in the same room, (e.g.
gas, oil or coal heaters), the oxygen they require is taken
away. Thus flames could be suffocated and gas could leak
out or the fumes could be drawn back into the room.
• In order to guarantee a safe operation, there should be non-
closable openings in doors, windows or in an air intake wall
box to ensure a fresh supply of combustion air. This
will prevent the combustion fumes from being drawn back
into the room.
• When assessing the measures necessary, always take the
entire ventilation system of the house into consideration. In
case of doubt, ask your local chimney sweeper for help.
• Never secure the cooker hood to a ventilation duct, or
a room or exhaust gas chimney! Do not let the air that
is removed from the room be drawn into a duct where
warm air is circulating. The extracted air should only be
drawn outdoors through a separate ventilating duct that is
only for the extractor hood.
• When in extraction mode, air in the room is being removed
by the cooker hood. Please make sure that proper ventilation
measures are being observed. The cooker hood removes
odours from room but not steam.
• There shall be adequate ventilation of the room when the
range hood is used at the same time as appliances burning
gas or other fuels (not applicable to appliances that
only discharge the air back into the room).
• The air must not be discharged into a flue that is used for
removing fumes from appliances burning gas or other fuels
(not applicable to appliances that only discharge the air back
into the room).
• There is a fire risk if cleaning is not carried out in accordance
with the instructions.
• Pay attention to the sharp edges inside the cooker hood,
especially during cleaning.
• Always disc onnec t t he power supply prior to c leaning
the cooker hood. If the switched fused connection unit is
difficult to reach, shut off the power supply by using the
corresponding circuit breaker at the distribution board.
• Keep the cooker hood clean. Fat deposits could catch on fire
when exposed to high temperatures.

• Recirculated - air: Kitchen fumes are removed and af ter
purification are fed back into the room through the upper air
outlet openings. The purification takes place via the grease
4. PARTS SUPPLIED
We recommend that two people carry out the
installation. Pay attention to the procedure described in the
The wall breakthrough (core
drill hole, min. 155mm) must be carried out by a
professional prior to installing the extractor hood.
Pay attention to the length of the exhaust hose when planning
the wall breakthrough. The exhaust hose must reach the
outer edge of the wall without any kinks.
If the exhaust hose leads through an outer wall,
the air outlet on the outside must be equipped with a cover
that has self-opening slits (not supplied). This can be installed
by the company that performs the wall breakthrough.
If open fireplaces are operated in the same room, ask your
local chimney sweeper about the local regulations prior to
If you are renting, then approval must be obtained from the
owner of the property.
In order for the cooker hood to reach
optimal performance, mount it over the middle of the cooking
• Plan the power connection prior to installation so that
a disturbing cable will not be visible afterwards.
• The following accessories are required to mount the
cooker hood (not included with the delivery):
1 Cooker Hood
2 Upper and lower Chimney Sections
5 Aluminium Filter
6 Wall Screw (3,9mmx32mm)
7 Wall Plug Ø6
8 Short screw (3,9mmx13mm)
• All fittings must be installed by a qualified electrician in
accordance with current IEE Wiring Regulations (BS7671)
and local building regulations.
Always switch off the electricity supply at the
mains during installation and maintenance. We recommend
that the fuse is withdrawn or circuit breaker switched off a
the distribution board whilst work is in progress.
• Prior to drilling holes to secure it to the wall, make sure that
no cables or pipes will become damaged (electric, gas,
water, etc.; test the areas in question with a cable detector).
• This unit is double insulated and must not be earthed. If there
are any incoming earth cables, they must be joined and well
insulated with good quality insulation tape. This is to ensure
earth continuity throughout your property.
• Means for disconnection must be incorporated in the fixed
wiring in accordance with the wiring rules. To achieve this
install appropriate switched fused connection unit.
A switched fused connection unit having a contact
separation of at least 3mm in all poles should be connected in
• Connect the incoming positive and neutral cables to the
terminals of the switched fused connection unit (fig.1 ). Ensure
connections are tight
• Using bracket (3) as a templates, mark and drill 6 holes in
the wall (fig3). Inset the wall plugs (7) (fig.3 ).
• Inset 2 long screws(6) to the middle two holes ("*"
mark dimension holes). Do not fully insert the screws (6) ; let
them protrude out of the wall by about 4mm (fig.3 )
• Hang the cooker hood (1) and fit the 2 upper holes to the
2 screws; Inset 2 long screws (6) through the cooker hood
into the lower 2 holes & wall plugs (7); Screw and tighten
the cooker hood (1) onto the wall.
• The stainless steel surfaces of your new cooker hood are
covered with foil to protect them from scratches during
transport and the corners of the glass plates have protective
caps on them.
Remove the protective foil and caps just before permanently
securing the cooker hood.
• Also, remove styrofoam and protective wrapping from the
motor, inside the appliance.
Installation with vent kit (not supplied)
• To use the exhaust operation, a wall breakthrough is
required with a diameter of at least 155mm. We recommend
that you let a specialist (electrician) perform the wall
breakthrough (core drill hole).
• The shorter the vent kit is and the less bends it has, the
more efficient the cooker hood will be.
• Official regulations may vary from region to region. In
case of doubt, we recommend asking your local chimney
sweeper for advice.
• If you have an outlet to the outside, your cooker hood can
be connected by means of an ex traction duct (enamel,
aluminum, f lexible pipe or inf lammable material with
an interior diameter of 150mm).
• The cooker hood should be placed at a distance of
40~80cm above the cooking place for best effect.
To fix the inner screws to the wall, the metal filter must be
• Mount bracket (3) on the wall. Secure with the remaining
2 sets of long screws (6) and wall plugs (7)(fig. 4).
• Attach the vent kit. In the example on figure 8, an exhaust
pipe of hardened PVC has been used. Optionally, the airtight
connection of the vent kit can be improved with duct tape (fig.
Sometimes, sponge tape covers the holes. If
the holes are located behind the sponge tape, simply
insert the screw through the sponge tape.
Risk of injury!
The chimney skirts may have
some sharp edges.
Remember not to fix the screw too tight,
so that height adjustment can be done easily
Use a soft cloth moistened with hand-warm mildly soapy
water or household cleaning detergent. Never use metal
pads, chemical, abrasive material or stiff brush to clean
Metallic anti-grease filter:
The filter collects grease,
smoke and dust so the filter is directly affecting the
efficiency of the cooker hood. If not cleaned, the grease
residue (potential flammable) will saturate on the filter.
Clean it with household cleaning detergent.
Clean the filter every month to
prevent risk of fire.
• Slide the upper chimney (2) into the lower chimney
(2). then pull the upper chimney upwards (fig 6) . Adjust
the height of the chimney to approximatly the required
height. Fix the upper chimney (2) on the bracket (3),
and secure on both sides with the 2 short screws (8) (fig.
• Check tight fit of all parts. Bridging larger distances
• Bridging larger distances to the outdoors can be
achieved by installing an external motor inside the
exhaust duct. To do this, consult an electrician.
