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.

for kitchen unit 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 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.

49

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 rules will drastically reduce the performance and increase the noise levels of the extractor hood.

Introduction

Extractor version

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

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

The air is discharged to the outside through a pipe, 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 an activated charcoal filter and returned to the kitchen through the top grill of the outlet pipe.

You will need an original AEG KF20 activated carbon filter for the filtering function. (See Special Accessories).

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.

The hood is fitted with one motor having several speed. Turn the hood on a few minutes before you start cooking then you will get an underpressure in the kitchen. It should be left on after cooking for about 15 minutes or until all odours have disappeared. The control switches are located on the unit’s front panel:

a- Indicator lamp

b- Light ON/OFF switch

c- Motor OFF - Speed 1 push-buttond- Speed 2push-button

e- Speed 3 push-button

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

First, push the metal grease filter stop 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 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).

53

Carbon filter

The 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).

Cleaning/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.

Mounting

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 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.

Warning

Failure to observe the instructions on cleaning the unit and changing the filters will cause a fire hazard. You are therefore strongly recommended to follow these instructions.

The manufacturer declines all responsibility for any damage to the motor or any fire damage linked to inappropriate maintenance or failure to observe the above safety recommendations.

Changing the light bulb

Disconnect the cooker hood from the main supply.

Remove the lamp cover, use a screw driver as a lever. Fig. 5.

Replace the old bulb with a new one of the same type.

Remount the lamp cover.

If the light does not come on, make sure the bulb has been inserted in correctly before contacting the technical assistance service.

Cleaning

Warning: always disconnect the hood from the mains power supply before cleaning it.

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

Wash the outside surfaces using a delicate detergent solution. Never use caustic detergents or abrasive brushes or powders.

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