The Installer must leave these instructions with the homeowner.

The homeowner must keep these instructions for future reference and for local electrical inspectors’ use.


WARNING: - TO REDUCE THE RISK OF A RANGE TOP GREASE FIRE: Never leave surface units unattended at high settings. Boilovers cause smoking and greasy spillovers that may ignite. Heat oils slowly on low or medium setting. Always turn hood ON when cooking at high heat or when cooking flaming foods. Clean ventilating fans frequently. Grease should not be allowed to accumulate on fan or filter. Use proper pan size. Always use cookware appropriate for the size of the surface element.

WARNING: - TO REDUCE THE RISK OF INJURY TO PERSONS IN THE EVENT OF A RANGE TOP GREASE FIRE, OBSERVE THE FOLLOWING: SMOTHER FLAMES with a close-fitting lid, cookie sheet, or metal tray, then turn off the burner. BE CAREFUL TO PREVENT BURNS. If the flames do not go out immediately EVACUATE AND CALL THE FIRE DEPARTMENT. NEVER PICK UP A FLAMING PAN - You may be burned. DO NOT USE WATER, including wet dishcloths or towels - a violent steam explosion will result. Use an extinguisher ONLY if: 1. You know you have a Class ABC extinguisher, and you already know how to operate it. 2. The fire is small and contained in the area where it started. 3. The fire department is being called. 4. You can fight the fire with your back to an exit.


This rangehood requires at least 24" of clearance between the bottom of the rangehood and the cooking surface or countertop. This minimum clearance may be higher depending on local building code. For example, for gas ranges, a minimum of 30" may be required. The maximum depth of overhead cabinets is 13". Overhead cabinets on both sides of this unit must be a minimum of 18" above the cooking surface or countertop. Consult the cooktop or range installation instructions given by the manufacturer before making any cutouts. MOBILE HOME INSTALLATION. The installation of this rangehood must conform to the Manufactured Home Construction and Safety Standards, Title 24 CFR, Part 3280 (formerly Federal Standard for Mobile Home Construction and Safety, Title 24, HUD, Part 280). Four wire power supply must be used and the appliance wiring must be revised. See Electrical Requirements.


Determine which venting method is best for your application. Ductwork can extend either through the wall or the roof. The length of the ductwork and the number of elbows should be kept to a minimum to provide efficient performance. The size of the ductwork should be uniform. Do not install two elbows together. Use duct tape to seal all joints in the ductwork system. Use caulking to seal exterior wall or floor opening around the cap.

Flexible ductwork is not recommended. Flexible ductwork creates back pressure and air turbulence that greatly reduces performance.

Make sure there is proper clearance within the wall or floor for exhaust duct before making cutouts. Do not cut a joist or stud unless absolutely necessary. If a joist or stud must be cut, then a supporting frame must be constructed

WARNING - To Reduce The Risk Of Fire, Use Only Metal Ductwork.








Venting system MUST terminate outside the home.

DO NOT terminate the ductwork in an attic or other enclosed space.

DO NOT use 4" laundry-type wall caps.

Flexible-type ductwork is not recommended.

DO NOT obstruct the flow of combustion and ventilation air.

Failure to follow venting requirements may result in a fire.

Electrical ground is required on this rangehood.

If cold water pipe is interrupted by plastic, nonmetallic gaskets or other materials, DO NOT use for grounding.

DO NOT ground to a gas pipe.

DO NOT have a fuse in the neutral or grounding circuit. A fuse in the neutral or grounding circuit could result in electrical shock.

Check with a qualified electrician if you are in doubt as to whether the rangehood is properly grounded.

Failure to follow electrical requirements may result in a fire.








This canopy hood is designed to be fixed to any rigid vertical surface, over a gas or electric hotplate and can be used either in the extraction mode (ducted to the outside) or in the recirculation mode (internal recycling).



Because of the weight and size of the rangehood canopy, two or more people are needed to move and safely install the rangehood canopy. Failure to properly lift rangehood could result in damage to the product or personal injury.


The hood comprises the following (fig.1 ):

No.1 canopy C complete with controls, lighting and ventilator unit

No.1 telescopic chimney, comprising: No.1 upper chimney element S

No.1 lower chimney element I

No.2 directional grills G

No.1 recirculation spigot R

No.2 additional side recirculation spigots P1

No.1 bag containing:

No.2 brackets 2 to fix the chimney, screws, rawl plugs and documents.

No.1 splashback B (optional)

Installation instructions

For easy installation, proceed as follows:

Fitting the wall brackets and Splashback

Fixing the canopy

Electrical connection and working test

Ducting or Recirculation fitting

Fitting the telescopic chimney

Fitting the wall brackets and Splashback

Please refer to (fig.2a-b):

Draw a vertical line on the wall, from the centre of the cooking appliance up to the ceiling, using a marking pen. This is to ensure the correct vertical alignment of the various parts.

Fixing the wall brackets item 2:

a)Place one of the brackets 2 against the wall approximately 1 or 2 mm from the ceiling or from the top limit, aligning its centre (slot) with the vertical line.

b)Mark the centres of two keyholes in the bracket on the wall.

c)Rest the other bracket 2 against the wall, aligning it with the vertical line, at a distance X measured as shown in fig.2 equal to the height of the upper chimney element S supplied with the hood. The position X may vary, according to the various sizes of upper chimney element available.

d)Mark the centres of the keyholes in the bracket on the wall.







• Drilling fixing holes item 1:

a)Mark a point on the vertical line at a distance from the cooking appliances of: d =1000 min (distance without splashback).

d =height of splashback + 350 mm (distance with splashback).The distance H is the minimum height in mm from the cooking appliances to the bottom edge of the front panel of the hood.

b)At the point marked, draw a horizontal line parallel to the cooking appliances.

c)Drill two holes in the wall 1 using an 8 mm drill bit (fig.2a), and insert the rawl plugs and screws into the holes 1 (4.2 x 44.4 screws). Fix the screws, leaving a space of 5-6 mm required to hook up the canopy. Small adjustments can be made using the hood adjustment screws (see Fitting the canopy). The hood should have a maximum excursion of 20 mm.

Splashback (optional)

When a splashback is to be fitted, the distance between the hood and the cooking appliances will be determined by the height of the splashback B and whether or not there is a raised back on the worktop. The splashback is to be installed before installing the canopy. If the splashback is to be fixed to the wall using both the top and bottom fixing holes, care must be taken to ensure that the splashback is fitted at the correct height before fixing the base units or at least the worktop covering them. As this is a complex

operation, it should only be undertaken by the technician installing the kitchen units or by a competent person who knows the final dimensions of the units. If the splashback is to be fixed through the top fixing holes only, proceed as follows:

a)Rest the splashback on the worktop and against the wall, as illustrated in fig.2 .

b)Mark the centres of the two holes in the top surface.

c)Drill the wall using an 8 mm drill bit, and fix the splashback using the rawl plugs and screws provided.

d)If necessary, the installer should secure the splashback to the wall by tucking the bottom edge down behind the rear of the worktop.

Fixing the canopy

Before starting to fix the canopy it will be necessary to adjust the support brackets S1 by turning the adjustment screws in a clockwise direction until their reach their limit (Fig.3):

a)Hook the canopy onto the two size 4.2 x 44.4 screws 1 fitted as described above (Fig.4).

b)Level the hood by turning the adjustment screws and then locking them.

Ducting or Recirculation fitting

Ducting fitting

The hood can be ducted to the outside using either rigid or flexible ducting Ø 150 mm, the choice of which is left to the installer (fig.5).

If the hood is supplied with the activated charcoal filters fitted, the filters should be removed (see paragraph on Maintenance).







Recirculation fitting

The filtered air is returned to the room through the two plastic side grills G on the upper chimney element S .

Connect the pipe T to the round fan outlet, pushing it downwards, and fit spigot R in a similar manner (make sure that the two additional side recirculation spigots P1 are fitted to spigot R). Make sure that the height of the assembly R + T corresponds to the height of the chimney outlet.(fig.6).

Fit the activated charcoal filters inside the canopy (see paragraph on Maintenance ). Do not fit the venting grilles until after the chimney has been installed.

Fitting the telescopic chimney

To fit the upper section S first expand the two side pieces slightly, hook them behind the brackets 2 and close them together again until they touch. Fix the upper section S to the brackets 2 using four of the screws provided in the bag of accessories (fig.7).

Fit the lower section I as above, between the upper section S and the canopy C.

Chimney with venting grilles: Snap the venting grilles into position in the apertures located

on the chimney section, so that the symbol is turned upwards and the symbol faces forwards. Also, when the hood is used in recirculation mode, ensure that the grilles are properly secured to the inside of the recirculation spigot R (fig.8).
