Safety warnings

for user

Always cover lighted elements, to prevent excess heat from damaging the appliance. In the case of oil, gas and coal fired cookers it is essential to avoid open flames.

Also, when frying, keep the deep frying pan on the cooker top/ cooker under careful control.

The hot oil in the frying pan might ignite due to overheating.

The risk of self-ignitionincreases when the oil being used is dirty.

It is extremely important to note that overheating can cause a fire.

Never carry out any flambé cooking under the hood.

Always disconnect the unit from the power supply before carrying out any work on the hood, including replacing the light bulb (take the cartridge fuse out of the fuse holder or switch off the automatic circuit breaker).

It is very important to clean the hood and replace the filter at the recommended intervals. Failure to do so could cause grease deposits to build up, causing a fire hazard.

When used as an extractor unit, the hood must be fitted with a 120mm diameter hose.

If the fumes must be forced out through the wall, you must obtain a MKZ sizable wall exhaust pipe (with external exhaust and air intake), E-Nr.-610 899 004 (Ø 120 mm) which is one of our optional parts.

When installing the hood, make sure you respect the following minimum distance from the top edge of the cooking hob/ ring surfaces:

electric cookers

600 mm

gas cookers

650 mm

coal and oil cookers

700 mm min.


The national decree on fuel-burningsystems specifies a maximum depression of 0.04 bar in such rooms.

The air outlet must not be connected to chimney flues or combustion gas ducts. The air outlet must under no circumstances be connected to ventilation ducts for rooms in which fuel-burningappliances are installed.

It is advisable to apply for authorization from the relevant controlling authority when connecting the outlet to an unused chimney flue or combustion gas duct.

The air outlet installation must comply with the regulations laid down by the relevant authorities.

When the unit is used in its extractor version, a sufficiently large ventilation hole must be provided, with dimensions that are approximately the same as the outlet hole.

National and regional building regulations impose a number of restrictions on using hoods and fuel-burningappliances connected to a chimney, such as coal or oilroom-heatersand gas fires, in the same room.

Hoods can only be used safely with appliances connected to a chimney if the room and/or flat (air/environment combination) is ventilated from outside using a suitable ventilation hole approximately 500-600cm2 large to avoid the possibility of a depression being created during operation of the hood.

If you have any doubts, contact the relevant controlling authority or building inspector’s office.

Since the rule for rooms with fuel burning appliances is “outlet hole of the same size as the ventilation hole”, a hole of 500-600cm2, which is to say a larger hole, could reduce the performance of the extractor hood.

If the hood is used in its filtering function, it will operate simply and safely in the above conditions without the need for any of the aforementioned measures.

When the hood is used in its extractor function, the following rules must be followed to obtain optimal operation:

short and straight outlet hose

keep bends in outlet hose to a minimum

never install the hoses with an acute angle, they must

always follow a gentle curve only

— keep the hose as large as possible (120 mm Ø min.).

Failure to observe these basic rules will drastically reduce the performance and increase the noise levels of the extractor hood.



Extractor version

lThe hood is supplied as an extractor unit and can also be used with a filtering function by fitting one activated carbon filter (special accessory).

lYou will need original AEG activated carbon filter for this function (see Special Accessories).

lThe unit features two outlet holes, one of which A is located on the top of the unit while the otherB is located on the rear.

lTo connect up the hose, you should first fit the bayonet-mountingflangeC (Ø 120 mm) on the outlet required (if using the top outlet, fix the flange in place using the screw supplied as shown inFig. 1). Close off the unused hole using the bayonet fitting capsD.

Hood Operation

The hood is fitted with a variable speed motor. The most effective use of the hood is obtained by switching it on a few minutes before you start cooking and leaving it on a for approximately 15 minutes after you have finished, thus ensuring all cooking odours are eliminated. The control switches are located on the unit’s front panel:

the light switch switches the hood lamp on and off;

the motor switch switches the cooking smoke and vapour extractor motor on and off, enabling you to select one of the three different speeds.

Maintenance and care

The hood must always be disconnected from the mains power supply before beginning any maintenance work.

Metal grease filter

The purpose of the grease filters is to aspirate grease particles which form during cooking and it must always be used, either in the external evacuation or internal recycling function.

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

Open the metal grease filter

lFirst of all, push the stop Q on the metal grease filterN back, and then extract the filter by pulling downward.Fig. 4.

Hand washing

Soak grease filters for about

one hour in hot water with a grease-looseningcleaner, then

rinse off thoroughly with hot

water. Repeat the process if necessary. Refit the grease

filters when it are dry.

Dishwasher machine

Place grease filters in dish washer. Select most powerful washing programme and highest temperature, at least 65°C. Repeat the process. Refit the grease filters when it are dry. When washing the metal grease filter in the dishwasher a slight discoloration of the filter can occur, this does not have any impact on its performance.

Clean the inner housing using a hot detergent solution only (never use caustic detergents, abrasive powders or brushes).


Carbon filter

The activated carbon filter should only be used if you want to use the hood in its filtering function.

To do this you will need an original AEG activated carbon filter (see special accessories).

lCleaning/replacing the carbon filter

Unlike other carbon filters, the LONGLIFE carbon filter can be cleaned and reactivated. At normal use the filter should be cleaned every second month. 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 carbon, the filter should be dried in an oven for 10 minutes with a temperature of maximum 100º C.

After approximately three years of use, the carbon filter should be replaced with a new, as the odour reduction capacity will be reduced.


Remove the grease filters and fit one LONG LIFE carbon filter S on the rear side of each grease filter, fix each with two metal wires

Z . Fig. 5.

To dismount proceed in reverse order.

Always specify the hood model code number and serial number when ordering replacement filters. This information is shown on the registration plate located on the inside of the unit.

The activated carbon filter can be ordered from the AEG technical assistance service.
