Safety and warnings 1


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

This rangehood 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 rangehood. 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.

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 rangehood. Never use the rangehood without the filters in place.

Stainless steel or powdercoat is very easily damaged during installation if abraded or knocked by tools. It is recommended to protect the top of the rangehood with cardboard or plastic bag 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 rangehood 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 rangehood 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 rangehood is heavy. Please ensure adequate care is taken when installing the rangehood to prevent personal injury. The rangehood must be installed onto a solid wall, stud, beam or truss. Weight of the product is 6.5 kg.

2 Installation instructions

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

Installation instructions







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.

A = 600 min (electric cook top)

A = 650 min (gas cook top)

Not less than 650 mm Gas Burner

Ducting options

Some authorities require rangehoods to be vented outside. Attention should be given to ensure that any applicable regulations concerning the discharge of exhaust air is fulfilled.

Side ducting

Fig.3 Ducting options

285 x 85 mm rectangular, or 150 mm diameter round ducting (using a rectangular-to-round adaptor) 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.5 (below).

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


If the rangehood is to be installed as a recirculating hood, the knockouts shown in Fig.4 should not be removed. For recirculation please purchase a charcoal filter (R103794C).


If the rangehood is to be installed as a ducted hood, remove the appropriate duct knockout. See Fig.4.

The rangehood can be mounted in two ways, top or sides.


Before commencement, unpack the rangehood and check that it functions correctly.

Mounting to underside of cupboard

Fix the rangehood to a shelf mounted at the right height in your wall units, by drilling 4 holes, 5 mm in diameter, (see Fig.6) and fixing with 4 screws supplied.

Installation instructions







Mounting to cabinetry sides

Fix rangehood to your wall units, with 2 screws in each side into the vertical panels. To do this:

1Slide out the drawer and remove filter. You will see two mounting holes running through the moulded sides (see Fig.7).

2Remove the thin plastic skin (A) from each side fixing hole. An 8 mm diameter drill bit is recommended.

3Position slideout (ensuring unit is level) and fix in place using screws and hollow dowels through each side fixing hole (see Fig.8). (Check screw length with thickness of cabinet panels).

The rangehood’s plug can be easily plugged into the nearest wall socket, or if connected directly into the house wiring, a registered electrician is required.

Cleaning and maintenance 7


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 them 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.

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 three to six 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.

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)

1To replace a light bulb, first disconnect rangehood from power supply.

2Apply finger pressure to the face of the lamp cover and twist one quarter turn anti-clockwise, the lamp cover will now be free to drop out.

3Remove the faulty bulb and, using a cloth, fit replacement bulb into the lamp holder. Do not touch the new bulb with fingers as this will shorten the life of the bulb.

4Refit the lamp cover, applying finger pressure and twist one quarter turn clockwise.
