Safety and warnings 1


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

This island 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 island canopy. There must be adequate ventilation of the room when the island 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 island 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 island 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 island canopy. Never use the island canopy without the filters in place.

Stainless steel is very easily damaged during installation if abraded or knocked by tools. It is recommended to protect the top of the canopy with cardboard or polystyrene during the installation to minimise the risk of damage occurring.

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 island canopy is heavy. Please ensure adequate care is taken when installing the island canopy to prevent personal injury. The island canopy must be installed onto a solid wall, stud, beam or truss. Weight of the product is 43.2 kg.

2 Installation instructions

Thank you for purchasing a quality Fisher & Paykel island canopy. Each island canopy is tested and approved before it leaves the factory, ensuring our high standard of quality control is met.

Installation instructions







Height of island canopy

The island canopy is designed for 2440 mm high ceilings.

The chimney is telescopic and is designed for hood installations between 600 to 750 mm above the cooking surface.

Ascertain the desired installation height of the island canopy. Any installation above 750 mm will compromise the extraction performance.

The air outlet from the motor requires 150 mm round ducting which requires a 160 mm (min) diameter hole in the ceiling.

A = 600 min (electric cook top)

A = 650 min (gas cook top)

Ducting options


For recirculation, please purchase a recirculation kit (part no. RR1744). The recirculation kit is required to channel the air out through the side-ventsat the top of the flue.

Note: a ducting hole is not required to be cut in the ceiling if a recirculation kit is fitted.


For ducted installation, it is recommended that you use 150 mm diameter, rigid or semi-rigidducting. This will require a 160 mm (min) round hole in the ceiling, which the decorative chimney will cover. Care should be taken to align the canopy with the decorative chimney allowing sufficient clearance to accommodate the ducting.

For optimum efficiency, use smooth-wall,solid galvanized or plastic ducting for reduced noise and increased airflow. Flexible ducting should only be used as a last resort (ie in difficult installations) and if used, ensure that it is pulled tight.

The smoother, straighter and shorter the ducting the quieter and more efficient the wall canopy will perform.

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.

Preparing the island canopy for installation

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

Fixing to a solid joist or 50 mm deep truss is recommended.

Whenever possible protect the cooktop with cardboard or the like to prevent damage on installation.

4 Installation instructions


An additional person will be required for Step 11 of this operation, or, a simple support frame made to the correct dimensions will aid assembly of the island canopy.

1Before commencement, unpack the island canopy and check that it functions correctly.

2Use a plumb line to mark the centre of the cooking surface on the ceiling.

3Using the ceiling bracket as a template (Fig.3), mark the four holes on the ceiling. Ensure that the ceiling bracket front edge

is parallel with the bench top and that the plumb line mark is central to the four mounting screw holes.

4 Drill holes in the ceiling at the points marked.

aWhen fitting to a 50 mm truss, drill a pilot hole through the ceiling and into the truss.

bIf securing to any other ceiling type, please use appropriate fasteners and follow their instructions of use carefully.

5For the ducting, mark out and cut a Ø160 mm (min) hole in the ceiling.

6Fix the ceiling bracket to the ceiling using the screws supplied.

7Using duct tape, secure the ducting to the top of the motor housing. Tape the power plug to the top of the ducting, this will enable easy access to the plug after installation.

8Mount a set of four angle brackets to the canopy. Use eight self tapping screws, one per side, and one per corner.

9Determine the installed height of the canopy and attach the second set of four angle brackets to the first to achieve this height. Secure with eight self tapping screws, one per side per corner.

Installation instructions







10Strip the plastic protective film off the two chimney pieces and place these over the corners. Note: Fisher & Paykel logo to go to the front of the product. The lower chimney will rest on top of the canopy hood and the upper chimney will be extended and secured to the ceiling bracket. To ensure that the upper chimney does not slip inside the lower chimney, secure it so that the upper chimney is showing. Duct tape or placing two screws/nails through the upper chimney securing holes will do this.

11Offer the island canopy, angle brackets, chimneys and ducting up to the ceiling bracket and secure in place with eight screws provided, one per side per corner. The dimension between the filters and the cooking surface should be in line with those suggested in the ‘Height of island canopy’ section. An additional person will be required for this operation or a simple support frame manufactured to the correct dimensions will aid assembly of the island canopy.

12Finish assembling the ducting, ensuring the path is as short, straight and smooth as possible.

13Connect to the supply and switch on the power using switch/socket outside the island canopy.

14Slide the upper chimney piece up to the ceiling and secure in place with four screws supplied.

6 Cleaning and maintenance


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 island 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.

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 island 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 island 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.


Light bulb replacement



(Halogen bulb 12 Volts/20 Watt)



Switch off the power to the island canopy.



Use a small bladed screwdriver to prise off the light cover,



taking care not to damage the surrounding material.



Remove the defective bulb from the canopy hood.



Replace with a new bulb using a cloth. Do not touch the



bulb with fingers as this will shorten the life of the bulb.



Snap the cover back into place.
