Safety warnings
• When used as an extractor unit, the hood
must be fitted with a hose having preferably
the same diameter as the outlet hole.
Should there already be a pipe of diameter
125 mm that ducts to the outside through the
walls or roof, it is possible to use the 150/125
mm reduction flange provided. In this case
the hood will be slightly noisier.
Attention: The hose is not supplied and must
be purchased separately.
• The minimum distance between the
supporting surface for the cooking vessels on
the hob and the lowest part of the range hood
must be not less than 50cm from electric
cookers and 65cm from gas or mixed
If the instructions for installation for the gas
hob specify a greater distance, this must be
adhered to.

operation, disconnect the hood from the
mains by removing the plug or disconnecting
the home mains switch.

generated by appliances that combust gases
or other fuels.
• The flaming of foods beneath the hood itself
is severely prohibited.
• The use of exposed flames is detrimental to
the filters and may cause a fire risk, and must
therefore be avoided in all circumstances.
• Any frying must be done with care in order to
make sure that the oil does not overheat and
burst into flames.
• As regards the technical and safety measures
to be adopted for fume discharging it is
important to closely follow the relations
provided by the competent authorities.
• The hood must be regularly cleaned on both

Attention: the metal grease filters must be
removed and washed, either by hand or in the
dishwasher, every four weeks.

Hand washing
Soak grease filters for about one hour in hot
water with a grease-loosening cleaner, then
rinse off thoroughly with hot water. Repeat the
process if necessary. Refit the grease filters
when they are dry.
Place grease filters in the dishwasher. Select
most powerful washing programme and
highest temperature, at least 65°C. Repeat
the process. Refit the grease filters when they
are dry.
• Attention! When washing the metal grease
filter in the dishwasher a slight discolouration
of the filter can occur, this does not have any
impact on its performance.

filter (available from your local Service Force
• Cleaning/replacing the charcoal filter
Unlike other charcoal filters, the LONGLIFE
charcoal filter can be cleaned and reactivated.
With normal use the filter should be cleaned
every second month (when using the hood
2.5 hours per day,on avarage). The best way
to clean the filter is in the dishwasher. Use
normal detergent and choose the highest
temperature (65º C). Wash the filter
separately so that no food parts gets stuck on
the filter and later causes bad odours. To
reactivate the charcoal, the filter should be
dried in an oven for 10 minutes with a
maximum temperature of 100º C.
After approximately three years of use, the
charcoal filter should be replaced with a new
one, as the odour reduction capacity will be

It is possible to use a traditional charcoal filter
(Type 15), neither washable nor regenerable, to
be replaced every 3 - 4 months.
The filter holder frame of the charcoal filter is
welded together; the eventual frame supplied
with the hood is not, therefore, to be used.

Safety warnings for the electrician
The mains power supply must correspond to the rating indicated on the plate situated inside the
hood. If provided with a plug connect the hood to a socket in compliance with current regulations
and positioned in an accessible area. If it not fitted with a plug (direct mains connection) or if the
plug is not located in an accessible area apply a bi-polar switch in accordance with standards which
assures the complete disconnection of the mains under conditions relating to over-current category
III, in accordance with installation instructions.
IMPORTANT: Before re-connecting the hood circuit to the mains supply and checking the efficient
function, always check that the mains cable is correctly assembled.
