Page: 4
Technical safety
~ Before installation, check the cooker
hood for visible signs of damage.
Under no circumstances should you
use a damaged appliance. It could be
dangerous.
~ Before connecting the appliance to
the mains supply, make sure that the
voltage and frequency details given on
the data plate correspond with the
on-site electricity supply, otherwise the
appliance could be damaged. Consult
a qualified electrician if in any doubt.
~ The electrical safety of this
appliance can only be guaranteed if it
is correctly earthed. It is most important
that this basic safety requirement is
present and tested regularly, and
where there is any doubt, the
household wiring system should be
inspected by a qualified electrician.
The manufacturer cannot be held liable
for the consequences of an inadequate
earthing system (e.g. electric shock).
~ For safety reasons, this appliance
may only be used when it has been
fully installed.
~ Only open the housing as described
in the instructions given in the
installation sheet and in the Cleaning
and care section of this booklet. Under
no circumstances should any other
parts of the housing be opened.
Tampering with electrical connections
or components and mechanical parts is
highly dangerous to the user, and can
cause operational faults.
~ Installation, maintenance and
repairs may only be carried out by a
Miele authorised person in accordance
with current national and local safety
regulations.
Repairs and other work by unqualified
persons could be dangerous. The
manufacturer cannot be held liable for
unauthorised work.
~ Faulty components must only be
replaced by genuine Miele original
parts. The manufacturer can only
guarantee the safety of the appliance
when Miele replacement parts are
used.
~ During installation, maintenance and
repair work, the appliance must be
disconnected from the mains electricity
supply.
Warning and Safety instructions
5
Page: 5
~ Do not connect the appliance to the
mains electricity supply by a
multi-socket unit or an extension lead.
These do not guarantee the required
safety of the appliance (e.g. danger of
overheating).
~ For appliances with an external fan
motor fitted (...EXT models) the
connection of the two units must be
made using the connection cable and
the plug connectors.
These models may only be combined
with a Miele external motor.
~ This appliance must not be used in
a non-stationary location (e.g. on a
ship).
~ In areas which may be subject to
infestation by cockroaches or other
vermin, pay particular attention to
keeping the appliance and its
surroundings in a clean condition at all
times. Any damage which may be
caused by cockroaches or other vermin
will not be covered by the guarantee.
Using at the same time as other
heating appliances that depend on
the air from the room
Warning - danger of toxic fumes
~ Great care should be taken when
using the cooker hood at the same time
and in the same room or area of the
house as another heating appliance
which depends on the air in the room.
Such appliances include gas, oil, wood
or coal-fired boilers and heaters,
continuous flow or other water heaters,
gas hobs, cookers or ovens which draw
air in from the room and duct exhaust
gases out through a chimney or
extraction ducting.
When used in extraction mode, with or
without an external motor fitted, the
appliance draws air in from the room in
which it is installed and from
neighbouring rooms.
If there is insufficient air, an
underpressure will occur. The heating
appliance may be starved of oxygen,
impairing combustion.
Harmful gases could be drawn out of
the chimney or extraction ducting back
into the room, with potentially fatal
consequences.
Warning and Safety instructions
6
Page: 6
In order to ensure safe operation, and
to prevent gases given off by the
heating appliances from being drawn
back into the room when the cooker
hood and the heater are in operation
simultaneously, an underpressure of
0.04 mbar (4 pa) is the maximum
permissible in the room.
Ventilation can be maintained by air
inlets which must not be blocked, in
windows, doors and outside wall vents,
or by other technical measures, such
as ensuring that the cooker hood can
only be switched on when the heating
appliance is switched off or vice versa.
A ventilation brick alone is not generally
sufficient to ensure safe ventilation.
,The overall ventilation condition
of the dwelling must be taken into
account. If in any doubt, the advice
of a competent builder or, for gas, a
qualified gas fitter (GasSafe
registered in the UK) must be
sought.
If the hood is being operated in
recirculation mode, the above
restrictions do not apply.
Warning and Safety instructions
7
Page: 7
Correct use
~ Never use an open flame beneath
the cooker hood. To avoid the danger
of fire, do not flambé or grill over an
open flame.
When switched on, the cooker hood
could draw flames into the filter. Fat
particles drawn into the cooker hood
present a fire hazard.
~ When using the cooker hood over a
gas hob, ensure that any burners in use
are always covered by a pan. Switch
the cooking zone off when a pan is
removed, even for a short time.
Regulate the flame so that it does not
burn up the sides of the pan.
Do not allow the pans to overheat
excessively (e.g. when using a wok).
The cooker hood can become
damaged when exposed to excessive
heat.
~ Always switch the cooker hood on
when a cooking zone is in use,
otherwise condensation may collect in
the hood, which could cause corrosion.
~ When cooking with oil or fat, chip
pans and deep fat fryers etc, do not
leave the pans unattended. Never leave
an open grill unattended when grilling.
Overheated oil and fat can ignite and
could set the cooker hood on fire.
~ Do not use the cooker hood without
the filters in place. This way you will
avoid the risk of grease and dirt getting
into the appliance and hindering its
smooth operation.
~ The filters should be regularly
cleaned or changed as appropriate.
Saturated filters are a fire hazard. See
"Cleaning and care".
~ The cooker hood can get very hot
during cooking due to heat rising from
the hob.
Do not touch the housing or the grease
filters until the cooker hood has cooled
down.
~ Do not use a steam-cleaner to clean
this appliance. Steam could reach
electrical components and cause a
short circuit.
Correct installation
~ Refer to the cooker or hob
manufacturer's instructions as to
whether a cooker hood may be
operated above the cooker/hob.
~ The minimum safety distances
between the top of the cooker or hob
and the bottom of the cooker hood
given in the "Appliance dimensions"
section of this booklet must be
maintained, unless the hob
manufacturer states that a greater
safety distance is required.
If more than one cooking appliance is
fitted beneath the cooker hood, and
they have different minimum safety
distances to the cooker hood, select
the greater distance.
~ Safety regulations prohibit the fitting
of a cooker hood over solid fuel stoves.
Warning and Safety instructions
8
Page: 8
~ All ducting, pipework and fittings
must be of non-flammable material.
These can be obtained from the Miele
Spare Parts department or from
builders' merchants.
~ The appliance must not be
connected to a chimney or vent flue
which is in use. Neither should it be
connected to ducting which ventilates
rooms with fireplaces.
~ If exhaust air is to be extracted into
a chimney or ventilation duct no longer
used for other purposes, seek
professional advice.
Accessories
~ Only use genuine Miele spare parts
and accessories with this appliance. If
spare parts or accessories from other
manufacturers are used, this will
invalidate the guarantee, and Miele
cannot accept liability.
The manufacturer cannot be held
liable for damage caused by
non-compliance with these Warning
and Safety instructions.
Warning and Safety instructions

The cooker hood works with
. . . air extraction:
The air is drawn in, cleaned by the
grease filter and then directed outside.
If the on-site ventilation system does
not have a non-return flap, then the
non-return flap supplied with the
appliance must be fitted in the exhaust
socket in the motor unit.
Having a non-return flap fitted in the
ducting ensures that air, once ducted
to the outside, cannot get back into the
room again.
The flap is closed when the cooker
hood is switched off.
When the cooker hood is switched on,
the non-return flap opens for the
cooking vapours to be blown directly
outside.
. . . air recirculation:
(air recirculation conversion kit
required)
The air is drawn in and cleaned first by
the grease filter and then by a charcoal
filter. The cleaned air is then
recirculated back into the kitchen.
Charcoal filters are available to order
through your Dealer or the Miele Spare
Parts Department or via the internet on
www.miele-shop.com. (See back cover
for contact details and "Technical Data"
for model number).
Before using the cooker hood in
recirculation mode, ensure that the
charcoal filter is in place; see
"Cleaning and care".
. . . an external motor:
(EXT models only)
The EXT models are designed to be
connected to an external motor located
outside the room.
The external motor is connected to the
cooker hood by means of a control
cable, and is operated by the controls
on the cooker hood.

Page: 14
,Before any cleaning or
maintenance work is carried out,
disconnect the cooker hood from the
mains supply.
,Exercise caution when changing
halogen lamps. They get very hot
during use and remain hot for some
time after being switched off. The
hot lamps are also susceptible to
damage from damp cleaning. Wait a
few minutes after switching off
before commencing cleaning.
Housing
General
The surfaces and controls are
susceptible to scratches and
abrasion. Please observe the
following cleaning instructions.
^ All external surfaces and controls can
be cleaned using a Miele E-Cloth or
with warm water and a little
washing-up liquid applied with a well
wrung-out soft sponge or cloth.
^ Wipe the surfaces dry using a soft
cloth.
Do not use too much water when
cleaning the controls. Water could
penetrate into the electronics and
cause damage.
Avoid:
– cleaning agents containing soda,
acids, chlorides or solvents,
– abrasive cleaning agents, e.g.
powder cleaners or cream cleaners
and abrasive sponges, as well as pot
scourers or sponges which have
been used previously with abrasive
cleaning agents. These will damage
the surface material.
Important for appliances with
stainless steel housing
(This infomation does not apply to the
controls).
Stainless steel surfaces can be cleaned
using the Miele E-Cloth or with a
suitable, non-abrasive, proprietary
cleaning agent for stainless steel,
following the manufacturer's
instructions on the packaging.
To help prevent re-soiling, Miele
conditioning agent for stainless steel
can also be used. Follow the
instructions on the packaging.
Cleaning and care
15
Page: 15
Controls
The controls may suffer
discolouration or damage if soiling is
left on them for too long. Remove
soiling straight away.
Observe the General notes on cleaning
earlier in this section.
Do not use stainless steel cleaning
agent on the controls.
Grease filter
The re-usable metal grease filter in the
appliance removes solid particles from
the kitchen vapours (grease, dust, etc)
preventing soiling of the cooker hood.
To avoid a build-up of fat, it should be
cleaned every 3-4 weeks on average,
but sooner if necessary.
,An oversaturated filter is a fire
hazard.
When removing the grease filter do
not tilt it downwards at an angle.
^ Push the deflector plate in.
^ Then grip the front of the deflector
plate and hold the grease filter
securely. Whilst holding the grease
filter pull the deflector plate out as
illustrated above.
^ Then lower the filter downwards and
off.
To avoid damaging the filter or the
hob below, make sure you hold the
filter securely at all times when
handling it.
^ Switch off the fan.
Cleaning and care
16
Page: 16
Cleaning the grease filter by hand
^ Clean the filter with a soft nylon brush
in a mild solution of hot water and a
little washing-up liquid.
Do not use "neat" washing-up liquid.
Do not use:
– cleaning agents containing
descaling agents,
– powder cleaners, cream cleaners or
abrasive all-purpose cleaners.
– oven sprays.
Cleaning the grease filter in the
dishwasher
^ Place the filter as upright as possible
in the lower basket, with the short
sides upright. Make sure that the
spray arm can move freely.
^ Select a programme with a maximum
temperature of 65° C. If a Miele
dishwasher is being used, select the
Sensor wash programme.
^ Use a mild dishwasher detergent.
Depending on dishwasher detergent
used, cleaning the filters in a
dishwasher can cause permanent
discolouration to the surface.
However, this will not affect the
functioning of the filters in any way.
^ After cleaning, leave the filter to dry
for a while on an absorbent surface
before putting it back in place.
^ When removing the filter for cleaning,
also clean off any residues of oil or
fat from the now accessible housing
to prevent the risk of these catching
fire.
^ When putting it back, make sure that
the red plastic guides are at the
front and facing upwards.
^ Fit the grease filter in the front of the
deflector plate, press it upwards and
push it in together with the deflector
plate. It will slide onto the fixing pins
at the back. Finally, push the grease
filter back a little more.

Positioning the appliance in
the wall housing unit
To position the appliance correctly,
cut the spacer strip to required depth
T, and then attach it to the back of
the appliance.
T= Depth of carcase K minus depth of
appliance G
^ Example a shows the installation
without a front panel fitted and with
the front edge of the deflector plate
flush with the front edge of the
furniture housing unit. This installation
needs a shelf 95 mm deep.
^ Example b shows the installation
with a front panel to match the
kitchen furniture. This installation
requires dimension b for the front
panel plus 5 mm for the DML 400
fixing kit to be added to the shelf
dimension (95 mm + 5 mm +
dimension b).
The remaining installation gap must be
at least 180 mm in depth.
If it is less than 180 mm, position the
appliance further back, and reduce
measurement T accordingly.
The position of the deflector plate can
be adjusted in depth by a maximum of
35 mm at the front.
^ Cut the spacer strip supplied to
measurement T.
Score along the groove for the
smaller measurement as shown, and
remove the surplus.
^ Screw the spacer strip underneath
the housing unit sides, flush with the
rear wall.
^ Draw a vertical line up both inside
walls of the housing from the front of
the spacer strip.
Installation
26
Page: 26
^ Screw the brackets onto the right and
left inside walls of the housing unit as
shown. The back edge of the
brackets should align with the vertical
line drawn up from the front of the
spacer strip, and the lower edge
aligned with the lower edge of the
housing unit side wall.
The brackets are designed for 16
and 19 mm thick carcase sides.
Orientate the bracket so that the
vertical depth matches the thickness
of the panel, as shown.
Do not remove the protective film
between the deflector plate and the
casing until the hood has been
placed in the housing unit.
Installation of the cooker hood is
carried out without the grease filter
fitted in position. If the grease filter has
already been fitted, then remove it as
follows before installing the cooker
hood (see “Cleaning and care”).

^ Secure the front of the appliance to
the floor of the housing unit from
below using 4 screws (6 screws for
90 cm wide cooker hood).
To avoid damaging the deflector plate
when it is pulled out, care should be
taken to screw the fixing screws in
straight, and to ensure that the
screwheads are countersunk.
^ Secure the spacer strip to the back of
the appliance from behind using
4 plastic rivets as shown.
Attaching the lightshield
^ Attach the lightshield (if using).
A DML 400 installation kit, available as
an optional accessory, is required for
this (available as a special accessory).
Follow the installation instructions
supplied.
Weight of a lightshield matching
existing furniture
The lightshield must not exceed 1300 g
in weight.
This applies to lightshields with a depth
of up to 30 mm.
For larger or heavier lightshields, the
weight must be reduced by e.g.
machining it away at the back.

Aligning the deflector plate
^ The position of the deflector plate
can be brought forward by up to
35 mm using the adjusting screws on
either side of the deflector plate.
Align the deflector plate to the front of
the kitchen furniture units on either
side.
Fitting the grease filter
^ Remove the protective strip around
the edge of the grease filter.
Fit the grease filter.
^ To do this, pull the deflector plate
out.
^ Turn the grease filter so that the red
plastic guides are at the front and
facing upwards.
^ Fit the grease filter in the front of the
deflector plate, press it upwards and
push it in together with the deflector
plate. It will slide onto the fixing pins
at the back. Finally, push the grease
filter back a little more.

Vent ducting
^ If the on-site ventilation system does
not have a non-return flap, then the
non-return flap supplied with the
appliance must be fitted in the
exhaust socket in the motor unit. ^ When using C 150 mm ducting,
secure the exhaust connection
supplied to exhaust ducting with
hose clips.
^ If using C 125 mm ducting, fit the
reducing collar into the exhaust
connection, and secure the exhaust
ducting to the reducing collar with a
hose clip. (See "Connection for air
extraction").
^ Place the exhaust ducting on the fan
connection for the cooker hood.
^ See "Connection for air extraction" for
further instructions on fitting the
ducting.

Setting up for recirculation
mode
If site conditions are not suitable for the
cooker hood to be used with air
extraction, the appliance must be set
up for recirculation.
For this, conversion kit DUU 151
(available from your Miele dealer or the
Miele Spare Parts Dept.) is required.
You will also need a charcoal filter (see
“Technical data”).
^ Fit the conversion kit as described in
the installation instructions supplied
with the kit.
^ Make sure that the slats in the
exhaust grille point towards the
centre of the room and not towards a
wall or the ceiling.
A non-return flap is not used in
recirculation mode.
^ Fit the charcoal filter (see “Cleaning
and care”).
Electrical connection
Refer to the notes in “Electrical
connection” and “Warning and
Safety instructions” before
connecting to the electricity supply.
^ For appliances connected to an
external motor (EXT models):
Connect the cooker hood to the
external motor using the connecting
cable and the 6-pole plug connector.
^ Separate fitting instructions are
supplied with the external motor.

Important: To avoid the danger of
toxic fumes, please observe the
Warning and Safety instructions.
This is especially crucial when using
the cooker hood at the same time as
another heating appliance which
relies on air from the same room.
The cooker hood should be installed
according to local and national
building regulations. Seek approval
from the building inspector where
necessary.
– Only use smooth pipes or flexible
hoses made from non-flammable
materials for the extraction ducting.
– When using an external motor, make
sure that the exhaust ducting is
sufficiently rigid. The external motor
can cause an underpressure which
can result in the exhaust ducting
distorting.
To achieve the greatest possible air
extraction with the lowest noise level,
please note the following:
– To ensure efficient air extraction, the
diameter of the exhaust ducting
should not be less than 150 mm.
– If flat ducting is being used, the
cross-section must not be smaller
than the cross-section of the exhaust
connection.
– All ducting, pipework and fittings
must be of non-flammable materials.
– The exhaust ducting should be as
short and straight as possible.
– Only use wide radius bends.
– The exhaust ducting should not be
kinked or compressed.
– Ensure that all connections are
strong and airtight.
– Where ducting is horizontal, it must
be laid to slope away at at least 1 cm
per metre. This is to ensure that
condensate cannot drain back into
the cooker hood.
Connection for air extraction
33
Page: 33
– If the exhaust air is to be ducted into
the open air, the installation of a
telescopic wall vent or roof vent
(available as an optional accessory)
is recommended.
– If the exhaust air is to be ducted into
a vent flue, the ducting must be
directed in the flow direction of the
flue.
Important:
If the exhaust ducting is to run through
rooms, ceiling space etc. where there
may be great variations in temperature
between the different areas, the
problem of condensation will need to
be addressed. The exhaust ducting will
need to be suitably insulated.
Condensate trap
(optional accessory)
In addition to insulating the exhaust
ducting, we recommend that a suitable
condensate trap is also installed to
collect and evaporate any condensate
which may occur. Condensate traps
are available for C 125 mm or
C 150 mm ducting.
When installing a condensate trap,
ensure that it is positioned vertically
and if possible directly above the
exhaust connection. The arrow on the
housing indicates the direction of
air-flow.
Cooker hoods designed for use with an
external motor (...EXT models) have an
integrated condensate trap.
Connection for air extraction
34
Page: 34
Silencer
(optional accessory)
To achieve even further reductions in
noise levels, a special silencer can be
fitted in the ducting system.
...with air extraction:
The silencer not only reduces noise
from the fan, but also sounds from
outside (e.g. traffic noise).
For this reason the silencer must be
positioned as close as possible to the
ducting exit a.
...in recirculation mode:
The silencer needs to be positioned
between the fan and the exhaust grille
b. The space needs to be checked in
some cases.
...air extraction with external motor:
To minimise noise from the motor in the
kitchen, the silencer should be
positioned in front of the external motor
c if possible, or if the ducting is long,
then in the ducting inside the cooker
hood itself d.
In the case of an external motor placed
inside the house, fitting a silencer
behind the external motor e reduces
the noise of the motor outside the
house.
In all modes of operation, the most
effective noise reductions are
achieved if two silencers are fitted
one behind the other in the system.
