2 Safety and warnings


Please read the entire set of instructions before installing the wall canopy.

This wall canopy is not intended for use by young children or infirm persons without supervision. Young children should be supervised to ensure that they do not play with the wall canopy. There must be adequate ventilation of the room when the wall canopy is used at the same time

as appliances burning gas or other fuels. (A partial vacuum in the room could result in too high a concentration of gas in the air).

You must read the details concerning the method and frequency of cleaning. There is a fire risk if cleaning is not carried out in accordance with the instructions. Do not flambé under the wall canopy.

Exhaust air must not be discharged into an existing flue that is used for exhausting fumes from appliances burning gas or other fuels.

The minimum distance between the cooktop surface and the filters of the wall canopy shall be 600 mm, or 650 mm if installed over a gas cooktop.

Attention should be given to ensure that any applicable regulations concerning the discharge of exhaust air is fulfilled.

If the supply cord of this equipment is damaged it must only be replaced by the manufacturer, its service agent or similarly qualified person in order to avoid a hazard.

Always switch the power off prior to installation, servicing or cleaning the wall canopy. Never use the wall canopy without the filters in place.

A power outlet should be within 750 mm of the motor assembly and can be either on the wall, behind the chimney or in the ceiling.

To comply with electrical safety regulations, this canopy must be plugged into a socket near the appliance. The socket must be accessible, or have an accessible isolating switch, to enable the end user to isolate the canopy from the power for the purpose of internal cleaning or maintenance. Ducting accessories are not supplied. All ducting must comply with local requirements and building codes.


Electrical Shock Hazard

All electrical work must be done in accordance with local and/or national electrical codes as applicable. For safety, this product must be earthed. If you are unfamiliar with methods of installing electrical wiring, employ the services of a qualified electrician. Turn off power at service entrance before installing wiring or servicing this product.




Weight Hazard


The wall canopy is heavy. Please ensure adequate care is taken when installing


the wall canopy to prevent personal injury. The wall canopy must be installed

onto a solid wall, stud, beam or truss. Weight of the product is 8.8 kg/10.7 kg.

4 Installation instructions

Height of wall canopy

Where an electric cooktop is installed beneath the wall canopy, the distance between the top of the cooktop and the underside of the range hood must be a minimum of 600 mm and a maximum of 700 mm.

Where a gas fuelled cooktop is installed beneath the wall canopy, the distance between the top of the pot rests and the underside of the rangehood must be a minimum of 650 mm and a maximum of 750 mm.

Note: your relevant gas or local building authority may specify different height requirements. Care should be taken to comply with any applicable regulations concerning the discharge of exhaust air.

Ducting options

Note: if you wish to have the flue run all the way to the ceiling, please ensure that you work your measurements out fully before attempting the installation. In some instances, extra lengths of flue or a customised flue maybe required. A 740 mm flue extension is available as an accessory part for use where ceiling height is above 2440 mm. (Part no. 791989)


For recirculation, please purchase charcoal filters, which are fitted in place of the aluminium filters supplied with the hood. The charcoal filters purify the air before allowing the air to return back to the kitchen through the air vents in the sides of the chimney flue.

Note: a ducting hole is not required in the wall or ceiling if the canopy is fitted with charcoal filters.


For ducted installation, it is recommended that you use 150 mm diameter, rigid or semi-rigidducting. To accommodate the 150 mm ducting, a ceiling hole should be carefully measured and cut out, 160 mm (min) in diameter, with a centre line 100 mm from the edge of the wall.

Efficiencies in the performance of your canopy are enhanced by the use of smooth, straight and short ducting options.

We recommend using solid, galvanised or plastic, smooth-walledducting which helps to reduce noise and increase airflow.

The use of flexible ducting is not recommended. If there is no other option available, the flexible ducting must be pulled as tight as possible.

All ducting must comply with local requirements and building codes.

Note: we recommend an Easy Fit by Fisher & Paykel or a UNIDUCT ducting system, products that have been designed to expel air efficiently.
























Installation instructions















Preparing the wall canopy for installation

Before installing the wall canopy, please carefully read through the installation instructions in full.

Prior to drilling any holes, check that the area behind the surface to be drilled is clear of any electrical cables or pipes etc.

Take care when installing the wall canopy as stainless steel is easily damaged during installation if scratched or knocked by tools.

Protect the cooktop below, using cardboard or a similar protective cover, to prevent damage on installation.

6 Installation instructions

1Establish the desired height of the rangehood above the benchtop according to the ‘Installation height requirements’ above. Measure this distance from the top of the benchtop and, using a spirit level, draw a light horizontal line on the wall. Make sure that the line can easily be erased or will be hidden after installation. This is where the bottom of the rangehood will sit (Fig.2).

2Mark the position of the rangehood on the wall. Using a spirit level, also mark a vertical line intersecting the horizontal line, (ensuring that the line can easily be erased or will be hidden after installation) showing the position where the centre of

the rangehood will be. This is normally over the centre of the cooktop (Fig.3).

3Remove the grease filters (this is to make installation easier). Press inward on the catch, found on the handle, and pull the filter downward (Fig.4).

4Determine location of the fixing “keyholes” on the wall. The hood is secured to the wall by two “keyholes” located above the motor behind the air exit opening. From the point where the horizontal and vertical lines drawn earlier intercept, use a spirit level and pencil and draw another horizontal line 290mm above the first horizontal line (ensuring that the line can easily be erased or the line will be hidden after installation) as shown in Fig.5. This now indicates where the top of the “fixing keyholes” are.

Where the vertical line meets the top horizontal line (just drawn), measure and mark both sides of the vertical line, showing where to drill.

60 – 75 cm

5Drill holes and secure the rangehood to the wall. Depending on the wall type (concrete, drywall etc) drill/screw appropriate fittings in the two locations just marked. The rangehood should now be able to be hung on these bolts/ screws through the two keyholes in the hood.

6Create additional means of attachment. Keyholes alone are insufficient means of attachment. Drill two extra holes in the back panel, put screws in with an anchor (if required) to ensure proper attachment and fix the rangehood by these screws as well, as shown in Fig.6. Ensure all fixings are secure.

7If ducting externally, assemble and fit ducting as per manufacturer’s instruction.

Optional: If desired, the one-waybutterfly valve can now be fitted to the exit opening of the rangehood by simply snapping the two pieces into place.

8Test the operation of the rangehood. Plug the rangehood in and test its operation on all speed levels. This will ensure that any imperfections in the installation, such as unwanted sounds or lack of suction can be addressed before the flue is in place. Over 95% of service calls are a result of faulty installation. Please be aware that in the event of a service call for a faulty installation, you will be charged as this is not covered under the manufacturer’s warranty.

9Position and secure the flue. Secure the top mounting bracket at the highest possible point on the ceiling using a single screw through the supplied bracket.

Ensure all ducting is fitted and electrical connections are secured correctly and switched on. Place the bottom part of the flue onto the rangehood and slide the upper flue piece inside the lower piece so the tabs “hug” the folded edge of the flue.

Raise the upper part of the flue to the required height and, using the four screws supplied, secure the upper flue to the bracket on the wall.

Installation is now complete.

Cleaning and maintenance 9


Never use abrasive or oil based liquid cleaners.

General maintenance

The manufacturer is not liable for any damage caused by not following these instructions.

The wall canopy should be cleaned regularly using warm water with soap or mild liquid detergents. This ensures that no build-upof grease occurs as these deposits are corrosive. Do not use abrasives or harsh detergents/cleaning fluids.

Note: in areas of high humidity and coastal environments, cleaning should be carried out frequently.

Grease deposit container

Your wall canopy is fitted with a clear container located underneath the motor housing, that is only visible when the grease filters are removed.

Over time, oil, fat and grease, that is normally deposited inside the motor casing, is directed into this container for easy cleaning.

This unique design will help ensure your wall canopy remains in peak condition by minimising the amount of fat or grease collected in the motor.


This container should be cleaned as necessary, usually on an annual basis. Always ensure the container is in place prior to using the wall canopy.

Do not attempt to block the hole in the motor casing.

Aluminium filters

The grease filters must be periodically cleaned (at least every two months).

Remove the grease filters and wash them either by hand using hot soapy water or place them in the dishwasher using mild detergent. Badly smoked filters may be cleaned with “cookware cleaners”.

Note: some discolouration of the frame may occur.

Charcoal filters

Charcoal filters are designed to remove grease and odours from cooking vapours, prior to the cleansed air re-enteringthe kitchen (when the wall canopy is in recirculating mode). Charcoal filters are disposable items and it is recommended that these should be replaced every three to six months depending on use.


Fully saturated charcoal filters can become a barrier to air movement, impeding the wall canopy’s performance.

In the event of fire, fully grease laden filters could be flammable and therefore regular replacement is recommended.

In ducted installations, conventional aluminium filters are recommended.

For replacement charcoal filters, ducting accessories, spare parts and service, please contact your local supplier or Fisher & Paykel Customer Care Centre.

10 Cleaning and maintenance

Light bulb replacement

(Halogen bulb 12 Volts/20 Watt)

1Switch off the power to the canopy hood.

2Use a small bladed screwdriver to prise off the light cover, taking care not to damage the surrounding material.

3Remove the defective bulb from the canopy hood.

4Replace with a new bulb using a cloth. Do not touch the bulb with fingers as this will shorten the life of the bulb.

5Snap the cover back into place.

Note: replacement bulbs are not covered by warranty.
