Recommendations and suggestions

•  The Instructions for Use apply to several versions of 

this appliance. Accordingly, you may find descriptions 

of individual features that do not apply to your specific 

appliance.

•  The manufacturer will not be held liable for any 

damages resulting from incorrect or improper 

installation.

•  The minimum safety distance between the cooker 

top and the extractor hood is 650 mm (some models 

can be installed at a lower height, please refer to the 

paragraphs on working dimensions and installation).

•  Check that the mains voltage corresponds to that 

indicated on the rating plate fixed to the inside of the 

hood.

•  For Class I appliances, check that the domestic power 

supply guarantees adequate earthing.

•  Connect the extractor to the exhaust flue through a pipe 

of minimum diameter 120 mm. The route of the flue 

must be as short as possible.

•  Do not connect the extractor hood to exhaust ducts 

carrying combustion fumes (boilers, fireplaces, etc.).

•  If the extractor is used in conjunction with non-electrical 

appliances (e.g. gas burning appliances), a sufficient 

degree of aeration must be guaranteed in the room 

in order to prevent the backflow of exhaust gas. The 

kitchen must have an opening communicating directly 

with the open air in order to guarantee the entry of clean 

air. 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.

•  If the supply cord is damaged, it must be replaced from 

the manufacturer or its service agent.

•  Connect the hood to the mains through a two-pole 

switch having a contact gap of at least 3 mm.

Use

•  The extractor hood has been designed exclusively for 

domestic use to eliminate kitchen smells.

•  Never use the hood for purposes other than for which it 

has been designed.

•  Never leave high naked flames under the hood when it 

is in operation.

•  Adjust the flame intensity to direct it onto the bottom 

of the pan only, making sure that it does not engulf the 

sides.

•  Deep fat fryers must be continuously monitored during 

use: overheated oil can burst into flames.

•  Do not flambè under the range hood; risk of fire.
