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. 

INSTALLATION 

•  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. 

•  In the event of damage to the power cable, it must be replaced by the manufacturer or by the 

technical service department, in order to prevent any risks.

•  If the instructions for installation for the gas hob specify a greater distance specified above, this has 

to be taken into account. Regulations concerning the discharge of air have to be fulfilled. 

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

•  This appliance is not intended for use by persons (including children) with reduced physical, sen-

sory or mental capabilities, or lack of experience and knowledge, unless they have been given su-

pervision or instruction concerning use of the appliance by a person responsible for their safety. 

•  Children should be supervised to ensure that they do not play with the appliance. 

•  “ CAUTION: Accessible parts may become hot when used with cooking appliances.”. 

MAINTENANCE 

•  Switch off or unplug the appliance from the mains supply before carrying out any maintenance 

work. 

•  Clean and/or replace the Filters after the specified time period (Fire hazard). 

•  Clean the hood using a damp cloth and a neutral liquid detergent.
