  • Failure to observe the instructions for cleaning the hood and replacing the filters may result in a fire.
  • Exhaust air must not be vented through a flue used for removal of fumes produced by gas combustion appliances or other combustible materials, but must have a separate outlet. All national regulations governing extraction of fumes must be observed.
  • There shall be adequate ventilation if the hood is being used at the same time as other appliances using gas or other combustible materials. The negative pressure of the room must not exceed 4 Pa (4x 10-5 bars). For this reason ensure that the room is well ventilated. In case of doubts, please consult an autorized service assistance center or similar qualified person.
  • Do not leave frying pans unattended when frying, as the frying oil may catch fire.
  • Before touching the light bulbs, ensure that they are cold.
  • Do not use or leave the hood without the light bulb correctly fitted, as this may cause electric shock.
  • The hood is not a work surface, therefore do not place any objects on top of it or overload it
  • During all installation and maintenance operations wear appropriate working gloves.
  • This appliance is not suitable for outdoor use.WARNING: when the hob is in use, accessible parts of the hood may become hot.
Installation and connection

In the event of problems, contact the Authorized Service Centre. To prevent any damage, only remove the appliance from its packaging at the time of installation.

Preparing for installation

WARNING: this is a heavy product; the hood should only be lifted and installed by two or more people. The minimum distance between the hob and the bottom part of the hood must not be less than 65 cm for burning gas or other fuels and 50cm for electric cookers. Before installation also check the minimum distances stated in the manual of the cooker. If the installation instructions for the cooker specify a greater distance between cooker and hood, this distance must be observed.

Electrical connection

Make sure the power voltage specified on the appliance rating plate is the same as the mains voltage. This information can be found on the inside of the hood, under the grease filter. Power cable replacement (type H05 VV-F) must be carried out by a qualified electrician. Contact an authorized service centre. If the hood is fitted with an electric plug, connect the plug to a socket complying with current regulations, located in an accessible place.

WARNING: if no plug is fitted (direct wiring to the mains), or if the socket is not located in an accessible place, a qualified electrician should install a standardized double pole power switch that will enable complete isolation from the mains in case of category III overvoltage conditions, in accordance with wiring rules.


The hood has been designed to be installed and used either as a “Extraction installation”, or as a “Recirculation installation”.

Extraction installation (see symbol in installation booklet) Cooking steam is sucked and channelled outside the house through a discharge duct (not supplied), fitted to the hood steam outlet.Ensure that the discharge duct is correctly fitted to the air outlet, unit using an appropriate connection system.Important: If already installed, remove the charcoal filter/s.

Recirculation installation (see symbol in installation booklet) The air is filtered through one or more the charcoal filters, and then resent into room.

Important: Ensure appropriate air circulation around the hood.

Important: If the hood is supplied without charcoal filters, these must be fitted before the hood can be used. Filters are available in IKEA shops.The hood should be installed away from particularly dirty areas, windows, doors and heat sources.The accessories for wall fixing are not included because walls made of different materials require different types of fixing accessories. Use fixing systems suitable for the walls of your home and the weight of the appliance. For more details, contact a specialized dealer.Keep this booklet for future consultation.

Cleaning and maintenance

WARNING:– Never use steam cleaning equipment.– Disconnect the appliance from the powersupply.IMPORTANT: do not use corrosive or abrasive detergents. If any of these products accidentally comes into contact with the appliance, clean immediately with a damp cloth.

  • Clean the surfaces with a damp cloth. If it is very dirty, add a few drops of washing up detergent to the water. Finish off with a dry cloth.

IMPORTANT: do not use abrasive sponges or metallic scrapers or scourers. Over time, these can ruin the surface.

  • Use detergents specifically designed for cleaning the appliance and follow the manufacturer instructions.

IMPORTANT: clean the filters at least monthly to remove any oil or grease residuals.

To clean the grease filter

The metal grease filter has an unlimited life and must be washed once a month by hand or dishwasher at low temperature and with a short cycle. With cleaning in a dishwasher the grease filter may become dull; this does not effect its filtering capacity.

Grease filter maintenance:
  1. Unplug the appliance or disconnect the power supply.
  2. Remove the grease filters: pull the spring release handle, then remove the filter downwards.
  3. After cleaning the grease filter, remount in reverse order ensuring the entire extraction surface is covered.

Charcoal filter maintenance (if the hood is installed in recirculation installation)

  1. Pull out the plug or disconnect the power supply.
  2. Remove the grease filter 3. If the carbon filters are already fitted (two filters that cover the protective grilles for the motor impeller) and have to be replaced, turn the central handle anti-clockwise to unlock them.
  3. Open the two filter shells
  4. Pull out the two circular mats
  5. Proceed in reverse order to fit the new filters.
  6. Refit the grease filters

Unlike traditional charcoal filters, this charcoal filter shall be washed and reactivated.

Care and cleaning long life Charcoal filter

  • The anti-odour filter shall be washed and regenerated every 3-4 months (or more frequently if the hood is subject to intensive use), up to a Max. of 8 regeneration cycles (in case of particularly intensive use it is recommended that you do not exceed 5 cycles).

Regeneration procedure:

  • Wash in the dishwasher at a MAX temperature of 70° or hand wash in hot water without using abrasive sponges (do not use detergents!
  • Dry in the oven at a MAX temperature of 70° for 2 hours or dry at room temperature, standing the filter in a vertical position to facilitate drainage.
Lamp maintenance

The hood is equipped with a lighting system based on LED technology.The LEDs guarantee an optimum lighting, a duration up to 10 times as long as the traditional lamps and allow to save 90% electrical energy.For replacement, contact the Authorized Service Centre.
