Safety warnings

For the User

The cooker hood is designed to extract unpleasant odours from the kitchen, it will not extract steam.

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, resulting in a fire hazard.

For the Installer

When used as an extractor unit, the hood must be fitted with a 150mm diameter hose.

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 more noisy.

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

electric cookers

500 mm

gas cookers

650 mm

coal and oil cookers

700 mm min.

The national standard 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 (preferably the same diameter as the outlet hole).

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


Description of the Appliance

The hood is supplied as an extractor unit and can also be used with a filtering function by fitting one charcoal filter

You will need an original AEG charcoal filter for this function (Available from your local AEG Service Force Centre).

Extractor version

The air is discharged to the outside through a hose, which must be fitted to connection flange A.Fig. 1.

In order to obtain the best performance

the hose should have a diameter equal

to 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 more noisy.




Filter Version

The air is filtered through a charcoal filter and returned to the kitchen through the top grill of the outlet pipe.

You will need an original AEG charcoal filter for the filtering function.

Fix the deflector using 4 screws Ø 3,5x6.5 mm. Fig. 2.

Optionally, the position of the chimney elements can be changed. When using the hood in the filter version the chimney must be fixed at the top, with the air outlet grill at the side.

Best results are obtained by using a low speed for normal conditions and a high speed when odours are more concentrated.

Turn the hood on a few minutes before you start cooking, you will then get an under pressure in the kitchen. The hood should be left on after cooking for about 15 minutes or until all the odours have disappeared.

Correct ventilation

If the cooker hood is to work correctly there must be an under pressure in the kitchen. It is important to keep the kitchen windows closed and have a window in an adjacent room open.


This is not applicable for recirculation. Great care must be taken if the hood is used at the same time as a burner or fireplace (e.g. gas, diesel, coal or wood heaters, water heaters, etc.), as the hood will expel air which is required by these other appliances. In this situation, ensure that a window is open. The negative pressure in the room must not exceed 0,04 mbar to prevent fumes being drawn back into the room by the cooker hood.


Maintenance and care

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

Cleaning the hood

Clean the outside of the hood using a damp cloth and a mild detergent.

Never use corrosive, abrasive or flammable cleaning products.

Never insert pointed objects in the motor’s protective grid.

Only ever clean the switch panel and filter grille using a damp cloth and mild detergents.

It is extremely important to clean the unit and change the filters at the recommended intervals. Failure to do so will cause grease deposits to build up that could constitute a fire hazard.

Metal grease filter

• The purpose of the grease filters is to absorb grease particles which form during cooking and it must always be used, either in the external ducted 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


• First, push the metal grease filter stop

Fig. 3

backwards, then extract the filter,


pulling downwards. Fig. 3.


Hand washing

Soak grease filters for about one hour in hot water with a greaseloosening 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 dishwasher. Select the most powerful washing programme and highest temperature, at least 65°C. Repeat the process. Refit the grease filters when they are dry.

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.


Charcoal filter

The charcoal 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 charcoal filter.

Replacing the charcoal filter

The charcoal filters cannot be cleaned, we recommend that they should be replaced approximately every three months or more often if the hood is used for more than three hours per day.


Remove the frame b which supports the filterc by unscrewing it from the hooda,Fig. 4.

Insert the coal mattress inside the frame and put all parts back in their place.

To remove proceed in the 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 charcoal filter can be ordered from your local AEG Service Force Centre.
