  • This cooker hood is only designed for domestic use, and should not be used in a commercial environment.
  • Never use the hood for any purpose other than its intended use.
  • Do not check the status of the filters during operation of the cooker hood.
  • Do not touch the light bulb within 30 minutes of use.
  • Do not flambé or excessively flame under the hood.
  • Never leave frying food unattended as it can be a serious fire hazard.
  • If the supply cord is damaged, it must be replaced by the manufacturer, its service agent or a similarly qualified person in order to avoid a hazard.
  • The socket outlet for the hood must be located so it is easily accessible for the user after installation.
  • Ensure the mains supply voltage corresponds with that of the appliance.
  • There is a fire risk if cleaning is not carried out in accordance with the instructions.
  • Ensure that the socket used provides adequate earthing of the appliance, if unsure professional advise must be sought.
  • This appliance can be used by children aged from 8 years and above and persons with reduced physical, sensory or mental capabilities or lack of experience and knowledge if they have been given supervision or instruction concerning use of the appliance in a safe way and understand the hazards involved.
  • Children must not play with the appliance.
  • Cleaning and user maintenance must not be carried out by children without supervision.
  • When the hood is being maintained, cleaned or filters changed, make sure it is switched off at the mains supply.
  • The exterior of the hood should be cleaned with mild detergent on a warm damp sponge or cloth.
  • The air must not be discharged into a flue that is used for exhausting fumes from appliances burning gas or other fuels.
  • Regulations concerning the discharge of air have to be fulfilled.
  • The minimum distance between the supporting surface for the cooking vessels on the hob and the lowest part of the hood must be at least 65 cm.
  • When the cooker hood is used in conjunction with appliances supplied with energy other than electric, the negative pressure in the room must not exceed 0,04 mbar to prevent fumes being drawn back into the room by the cooker hood.
  • Failure to install the hood in accordance with these instructions may result in electrical hazards.CAUTION:Accessible parts may become hot when used with cooking appliances. Deep fat fryers must be continuously monitored during use: overheated oil can burst into flames.

  • Please read the instructions carefully.
  • Unpack the hood and check that all functions are working. Ensure that the voltage (V) and the frequency (Hz) indicated on the serial plate match the voltage and frequency at the installation site.
  • Check that the area behind the installation surface to be drilled is clear of any electrical cables or pipes, etc.
  • The surfaces of the canopy are very easily damaged during installation if grazed or knocked by tools. Please take care to protect the surfaces during installation.
  • Protect the cooktop surface below with cardboard, or similar, to prevent damage occurring whilst the hood is being installed above.
  • The manufacturer shall not be liable for any failure to observe all safety regulations in force for the correct and normal operation of electrical products.



  • Sufficient air is needed for proper combustion and exhaustion of gases through the flue (chimney) of fuel burning equipment to prevent back drafting. Ductless fans must always be vented to the outdoors.
  • When assessing the air pressure, the entire ventilation system in the house/apartment must be taken into account.
  • All legal regulations must be observed for the conveyance of exhaust air. If the extractor hood is used in recirculating mode with the optional carbon filter, there are no operating restrictions.
  • Make sure the vent option knob is set correctly (page 6).

Ensure the power has been turned off at the mains before beginning installation. Connection to the mains supply must be in an accessible location. To install this hood you will require two assistants. You may need the following tools to complete this installation:

  • Drill appropriate for your wall
  • Phillips Screwdriver
  • Tape Measure
  • Hand Saw or Jig Saw

Electrical wiring must be done by a qualified person in accordance with all applicable codes and standards, including fire rated construction. Do not discharge the exhaust air into a flue from other appliances burning gas or other fuels. The cooker hood must be placed at a minimum distance of 65cm above the cooking surface of a hob.

  1. Drill a 130mm diameter and four 3.5mm diameter holes as shown in the diagram.NOTE: If your cooker hood is to be used in recirculating air mode, it is not necessary to cut the 130mm diameter hole.
  2. Attach the one way valve and then use 4 screws to fix the cooker hood to the underside of the kitchen cupboard. Check that your fixings are correctly located, by temporarily fitting the cooker hood. If correct, fit the unit into position. Tighten the screws as necessary.
  1. Drill two 10mm diameter holes in the correct position on the wall when compared to the hanging holes on the rear of the hood. Make sure the hood is aligned directly over the hob, a minimum of 65cm above the hob surface.
  2. Insert two plastics wall plugs into the holes.
  3. Insert two screws into the wall plugs and tighten them leaving around 3mm protruding from the wall.
  4. Mount the cooker hood onto the two screws and mark the bottom two screw positions.
  5. Remove the hood and drill the bottom two screw holes and insert the plastic wall plugs.
  6. Mount the hood on the top screws, insert the bottom screws and fully tighten all the screws.

InformationThe air must not be discharged into a flue that is used for exhausting fumes from appliances burning gas or other fuels.
