Installation and service
●Any electrical installation of the cooker hood must be carried out by a qualified electrician and the hood itself must be installed by someone with experience. Installation made by an unqualified person can lead to loss of function of the cooker hood and possible damage to person and and/or property.
●The cooker hood must be at least 50 cm above electric hobs or electric ranges, or at least 65 cm above gas burners or gas ranges.
●Ensure that the power cable is not damaged during installation.
●The cooker hood is only in stand by mode unless the plug or the fuse is disconnected.
●The cooker hood cannot be connected to flues of other appliances that run on energy sources other than electricity. Please, keep to the provisions of official directives regarding fume discharge.
Use of the cooker hood
●This appliance is for domestic use only in a normal household.
●Never leave any
●Never do any flambé cooking underneath the cooker hood. It can cause a fire. Remember that overheated fat may spontaneously ignite. Never leave the frying pan unattended.
●It is essential that the grease filter is regularly cleaned to help avoid fat dripping on to the hot zone and causing a fire. Read the section on “Maintenance and Cleaning” in the instruction book.
●Prevent accidents when disposing of your cooker hood. Disconnect the power plug from the wall socket and cut the power cord at the hood inlet. Contact your local authority for information on where to dispose of the cooker hood.
Description of the cooker hood
There are two possible systems:
● Extraction of air to the outside using an optional venting kit and evacuation duct.
● Recirculation using an optional carbon filter.
Accessories Fig. 1
The following are included with the cooker hood.
●2 Tube clamps
●1 hood canopy complete with controls, lighting and fan motor.
●1 telescopic chimney stack formed by:
●1 reduction flange Ø
●1 recirculation spigot.
●1 plastic bag containing: 2 wall hooks to fix the canopy hood, 1 wall bracket to fix the chimney, rawl plugs, screws, and documentation.
The following can be ordered from your retailer:
●Carbon, KF8 filter, alternatively KFL 60/80.The carbon filter is to be used when the hood is connected to the recirculation mode.
Using the cooker hood
The control panel
Best results are obtained by using a low speed for normal conditions and high speed when odours are more concentrated.
The control panel has two switches; one for the lamp and one for the fan, enabling you to select one of three speeds. (Fig. 2).
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.
If the cooker hood is to work correctly there must be an underpressure in the kitchen. It is important to keep the kitchen windows closed and have a window in an adjacent room open.
Important to know
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. Attend to it by opening a window. 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 cleaning
Before doing any maintenance work on the hood, disconnect it from the main supply by disconnecting the plug from the wall socket or unscrewing the fuse.
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.
Cleaning the grease filters
Clean the filter every month or every other month according to how much the hood is used. The cleaner the filters, the more grease they collect. Remove the filters by (Fig. 3):
●Push the handle towards the rear of the hood.
● Pull the filter down at the front
and remove it forwards.
The filter is made of aluminium wires on which the grease collects. Clean the filter in hot water using a detergent,
or in a dishwasher. Let the filter dry
before putting it back. Note that a
dishwasher may discolour the filter.
Changing and cleaning the carbon filter
Only applicable for recirculation. The carbon filters absorb smells and odours.
Unlike other carbon filters, the LONGLIFE KF8 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.
The KFL 60/80 carbon filter can not be reactivated, it has to be changed after
After approximately three years of use, the KF8 filter should be replaced with a new, as the odour reduction capacity will be reduced.
To remove the filter (Fig. 4):
●Remove the grease filters.
●Press the red buttons (A), lower the front of the carbon filter.
●Remove the carbon filter.
● Replace in reverse order.
Clean the filters regularly. The grease that collects in the filters and the duct could ignite if a hot plate is left on (or if overheating occurs).
Changing the light
Disconnect the cooker hood from the main supply before changing the light. To change the light (Fig. 5):
●Remove the the glass diffuser.
●Replace the old bulb with a new one of the same type.
●Refit the glass diffuser.
