1.	Take care when the cooker hood is operating simultane-
ously with an open fireplace or burner that depend on the air
in the environment and are supplied by other than electrical
energy, as the cooker hood removes the air from the environ-
ment which a burner or fireplace need for combustion. The
negative pressure in the environment must not exceed 4Pa
for a safe operation of the cooker hood.
Follow the local laws applicable for external air evacuation.
Before connecting the model to the electricity network:
Control the data plate (positioned inside the appliance)
to ascertain that the voltage and power correspond to the
network and the socket is suitable. If in doubt ask a qualified

•		Electric Connection:
-	The appliance has been manufactured as a class II, therefore
no earth cable is necessary. The plug must be easily acces-
sible after the installation of the appliance. If the appliance
is equipped with power cord without plug, a suitably di-
mensioned omnipolar switch with 3 mm minimum opening
between contacts must be fitted between the appliance and
the electricity supply in compliance with the load and current
-	The connection to the mains is carried out as follows:
BROWN = L line
BLUE = N neutral.
• The minimum distance between the support surfaces of
the cooking pots on the cooker top and the lowest part of
the cooker hood must be at least 65 cm. If a connection

evacuating fumes from other appliances generated by other
than an electrical source.
prepare the hole for evacuation of the air.
• We recommend the use of an air exhaust tube which has
the same diameter as the air exhaust outlet hole. If a pipe
with a smaller diameter is used, the efficiency of the product
may be reduced and its operation may become noisier.
• Warning: if the bulbs are not working, ensure that they are
screwed in fully.
• Installation
Prior to proceeding with the assembly operations (according
to the model that you have purchased), to facilitate handling
of the device, remove the grille as indicated in Fig. 5.

various installations use screws and screw anchors suited to
the type of wall (e.g. reinforced concrete, plasterboard, etc.). If
the screws and screw anchors are provided with the product,
check that they are suitable for the type of wall on which the
hood is to be fixed.
The hood is already prepared for the version with which it was
ordered. The versions may be:
- Extraction (Fig. 1A-3)
- Filter (Fig. 1B-4-7).
- If the hood is an extractor model, the lever C must be posi-
tioned as indicated in Fig. 3.
- If the hood is a filter model, the lever C must be positioned
as indicated in Fig. 4.
• Extractor version
The appliance expels the fumes through an outside wall or
a duct. It is necessary to buy a telescopic pipe in accordance
with the standards in use (inflammable) and connect it to
flange D (Fig 1A). The flange D is supplied with the product
and should be fixed above the air outlet hole of the hood as
indicated in Fig. 3.
• Filtering version
To transform an extractor hood version into a filter hood
version, please inquire with your retailer about purchasing
charcoal filters. The filters should be fitted to the extraction
the grille D(Fig. 5)
Close the air outlet opening with the plug B, as indicated in
Fig. 4.

months one must wash the anti-grease filters by hand using
non-abrasive neutral liquid detergents or in the dishwasher
at low temperatures and on short cycles.

not give the right to claim their replacement.
•		The active carbon filters are used to purify the air that is
sent back into the room and its function is to mitigate the
unpleasant odours produced by cooking.
-		The non-regenerable active carbon filters must be replaced
at least every 4 months. The saturation of the active charcoal
depends on the more or less prolonged use of the appliance,
on the type of kitchen and on the frequency with which anti-
grease filter is cleaned.
