Before installation, read the information on "IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS". Under certain conditions there is a risk of carbon monoxide poisoning, especially if you operate the range hood simultaneously with an open fireplace. Installing the cabinet door ^ Open the vapour canopy. ^ Pull the sliding catch forward to release the canopy and swing it forward and upwards. ^ Take out the grease filter and remove the protective foil from the filter frame. ^ Cut the drilling template for the front door to size, lay it on the inside of the door and pre-drill the holes as marked. ^ Using suitable screws, attach the cabinet door to the vapour canopy. Installation 18
Adjusting depth ^ The depth of the unit ("T" in the diagram) can be adjusted from 10 13 /16" to 14 3 /16" (275 to 360 mm) by means of the adjustable brackets.. ^ Slightly loosen the screws holding the brackets. ^ Pull the brackets out to the desired depth "T". ^ Tighten the screws again. ^ To align the depth on the underside of the hood, loosen the screws on the angle plate and move it to the position required. ^ If the range of adjustment is insufficient, unscrew the bracket completely, rotate it, and use the longer side. ^ Tighten the screws again. To install a plywood backing The whole weight of the installed ventilation system has to be supported by the mounting plates. They must be firmly attached to stud framing behind the drywall. If studs are not available directly behind both mounting plates, a plywood backing (min. 2" (51 mm) thick) spanning at least two studs must be installed. Failure to adequately support the weight as stated may result in the ventilation system falling off the wall, causing personal injury and property damage. (If plywood backing is not needed, proceed to "Wall attachment".) ^ Determine and mark the top edge of the appliance. It must be at least S + 17 3 /4" (S + 450 mm) in order to comply with the safety height (see "Appliance Dimensions"). 19 Installation
^ Make a cutting line 13" (330 mm) below the the top edge marking. ^ Find the studs to the left and right of the appliance location by tapping the wall or using a stud finder. ^ Mark a vertical cutting line along the center of each stud. Be careful not to damage any wiring or plumbing that may be located behind the wall. Make sure that the power supply to the area where this installation is being performed has been turned off at the breaker panel before cutting into the wall. ^ Remove the drywall between the cutting lines and replace it with plywood of a matching thickness (min. 2" (51 mm) thick). ^ Screw the plywood firmly to the wall studs. ^ Tape the joints and refinish the wall. Wall attachment ^ Cut the wall attachment drilling template and place it on the wall. The top edge of the trimmed template marks the top edge of the unit. To maintain a safe height above the cooktop, it must not be lower than S + 17 3 /4" (S + 450 mm) (see "Appliance Dimensions"). ^ Mark and drill the four locations for the mounting plate (C 3 mm). ^ Fix the mounting plate to the wall using the 5.2 x 50 mm screws provided. Another drilling template is provided for connecting the range hood to adjoining cabinets or for fitting side panels. ^ Using the template, drill two mounting holes in the side cabinet or side panel (C 2 mm). Installation 20
^ For Recirculation the reducing collar with the non-return flap must be removed by unscrewing the screws and installing the recirculation grille. ^ Using a screw driver, pry out one of the covers for feeding through the power cable. ^ Hang the range hood in position using the adjustable brackets. ^ Position the vapour canopy with the cabinet front fitted and close it. Installation 21
The movement of the vapour canopy can be adjusted. This may be necessary, for instance, if a heavy cabinet panel is mounted. In the front of the lower edge of the unit, two openings (right and left) give access to two adjustment screws. ^ Remove both cover caps. ^ Using a Philips screwdriver, adjust both sides evenly: - clockwise: the folding mechanism becomes stiffer. - counterclockwise: the folding mechanism becomes freer. ^ Replace the cover caps. Height adjustment ^ Using the screws of the adjustable brackets, you can align the unit with the height of the adjoining cabinets. Turn them – counterclockwise: The unit is raised. – clockwise: the unit is lowered. ^ If necessary, adjust the depth again. ^ Fix the hood to the wall using the 5.2 x 50 mm screws provided. Installation 22
Securing the appliance to neighbouring wall units or fitting side panels ^ Remove the vapour canopy. ^ With grease filters removed, secure the range hood, or fit the side panels, using two screws per side. For the lower screws, first remove the screw caps, and replace them afterwards. ^ Replace the vapour canopy. ^ For air extraction mode: – Fit flexible ducting or a extraction pipe to the discharge connection, using a hose clamp. – Now fit the other discharge air connection. (see "Air extraction") ^ For recirculation mode: – Fit the two deodorizing filters (see "Cleaning and care"). ^ Finally, replace the grease filters. Installation 23
All electrical work should be performed by a qualified electrician in strict accordance with national and local safety regulations. Installation, repairs and other work by unqualified persons could be dangerous. The manufacturer can not be held responsible for unauthorized work. Ensure that power to the appliance is OFF while installation or repair work is performed. ^ Verify that the voltage, load and circuit rating information found on the data plate (located behind the grease filter), match the household electrical supply before installing the hood. If there is any question concerning the electrical connection of this appliance to your power supply, please consult a licensed electrician or call Miele’s Technical Service Department.

The electrical junction box is located on the inside rear right of the range hood. ^ Loosen the screws and remove the cover. ^ Feed the power line from your house installation through the cable opening in the casing. ^ Connect the cables to the terminal clamps. Important The hood must be hard wired accordingly: Black/Red wire:. . . . connect to L1 (live) White wire: . . . . . connect to N (neutral) Green wire: . . connect to GND (ground) ^ Close up the junction box again and re-install the grease filters and the vapour canopy. Electrical connection 24
,WARNING Danger of toxic fumes. Gas cooking appliances release carbon monoxide that can be harmful or fatal if inhaled. To reduce the risk of fire and to properly exhaust air, the exhaust gases extracted by the hood should be vented outside of the building only. Do not vent exhaust air into spaces within walls or ceilings or in attics, crawl spaces or garages. To reduce the risk of fire, only use metal ductwork. Please read and follow the "IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS" to reduce the risk of personal injury. Follow all local building codes when installing the hood. Exhaust ducting and connections Use smooth or flexible pipework made from approved non-flammable materials for exhaust ducting. To achieve the most efficient air extraction and quietest noise levels, consider the following: – The diameter of the ductwork should not be less than 4 3 /4" (120 mm). – If flat ducting is used, the cross section must not be smaller than the cross section of the ventilation exhaust. – The ducting should be as short and straight as possible. – Use ductwork with a wide radius. – The exhaust duct must not be bent or compressed. – Make sure all connections are secure. – Where the ductwork is horizontal, it must slope away from the hood at least 1 /8" per foot (1 cm per meter) to prevent condensation dripping into the appliance. Air extraction 25
– If the exhaust is ducted through an outside wall, a Miele Telescopic Wall Vent can be used. – If the exhaust is ducted into an inactive flue, the air must be expelled parallel to the flow direction of the flue. Never connect an exhaust hood to an active chimney, dryer vent, flue, or room venting ductwork. Seek professional advice before connecting an exhaust hood vent to an existing, inactive chimney or vent flue. Important If the ductwork runs through rooms, ceilings, garages, etc. where temperature variations exist, it may need to be insulated to reduce condensation. Air extraction 26
