Safety and warnings 1


■■Please read the entire set of instructions before installing the rangehood.

■■This appliance can be used by children aged from 8 years and above and persons with reduced physical, sensory or mental capabilities or lack of experience and knowledge if they have been given supervision or instruction concerning use of the appliance in a safe way and understand the hazards involved.

■■Children shall not play with the appliance. Cleaning and user maintenance shall not be made by children without supervision.

■■The installation of Fisher & Paykel rangehoods must comply with the information in this guide. Failure to install the rangehood in accordance with these installation instructions may result in electrical hazards, injury, and damage to your appliance and loss of warranty. Failure by the installer to install the screws or fixing devices in accordance with these installation instructions may result in electrical hazards. Please install the appliance as detailed in these instructions.

■■There must be adequate ventilation of the room when the rangehood 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 rangehood.

■■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 rangehood 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.

Height of rangehood

Please read the entire instructions BEFORE installing the rangehood.

■■Ascertain the desired installation height of the rangehood.

■■When installing the rangehood, the lower edge of the unit must be a minimum of 600 mm (650 mm for gas cooker) above the cooking surface.

■■The recommended position for the hood is 650 mm above the cooktop.

■■Any installation above 750 mm will compromise the extraction performance.

* In recirculating mode you must use charcoal filters to eliminate cooking smells. (Part No.792390)

† HS60CSRX3 models are supplied with charcoal filters and 70 mm handle.

120 mm (top extraction) or 100 mm (rear extraction) diameter round ducting can be used in conjunction with this model.

For optimal efficiency, use smooth-walled ducting for reduced noise and increased airflow. Flexible ducting should only be used as a last resort.

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

4 Installation instructions

Preparing the rangehood for installation

Ensure the overhead cabinets are built according to Fig.7 (below).

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

Recirculated installation

If the rangehood is to be installed as a recirculated hood, first ensure the cabinets are built according to Fig.7 below:

1Do not remove the knockouts shown in Fig.4. These are removed for ducted options only.

2Remove Cover Tape “A”. See Fig.4.

Note: for recirculation, please purchase a charcoal filter (refer to Accessories list on page 2).

3If a 70 mm handle is not installed (depending on model purchased), remove front handle “B” by undoing the

3 screws on the fascia (see Fig. 4).

4Replace front handle “B” with the replacement handle “C”. See Fig.7 for height of handle.

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 rangehood should be cleaned regularly using warm water with soap or mild liquid detergents. This ensures that no build-up of 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 filter

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

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

Note: some discolouration of the frame may occur.

When installing or replacing a filter, remove the protective plastic covering from the filter.

Cleaning and maintenance 7

Charcoal filter

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


■■Fully saturated charcoal filters can become a barrier to air movement, impeding the rangehood’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.


To replace charcoal filters (C), proceed as follows:

1Remove Aluminium filter (A).

2To remove charcoal filter undo and remove the screw (B).

3To install follow above steps in reversed order.

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