Recommendations  

and suggestions

• The Instructions for Use apply to 

several versions of this appliance. 

Accordingly, you may find descrip-

tions 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 instal-

lation.

• 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 par-

agraphs 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 guar-

antees adequate earthing. Connect 

the  extractor  to  the  exhaust  flue

through a pipe of minimum diam-

eter 120 mm. The route of the 

flue must be as short as possible.

• Do not connect the extractor hood 

to exhaust ducts carrying combus-

tion fumes (boilers, fireplaces, etc.).

• If the extractor is used in conjunc-

tion 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 guar-

antee the entry of clean air. When 

the cooker hood is used in con-

junction 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. Regula-

tions concerning the discharge of 

air have to be fulfilled.

• Use only screws and small parts 

in support of the hood.

Warning: Failure to install the 

screws or fixing device in accord-

ance with these instructions may 

result in electrical hazards.

• 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 de-

signed 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 op-

eration.

• 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 continu-
