|Light bulb||12V Halogen/Max 20W|
|Charcoal filter (HC60)||790681|
|Replacement aluminium filter (HC60)||790682|

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.
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.
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.
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-rigid ducting. 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-walled ducting 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.
We recommend an Easy Fit by Fisher & Paykel or a UNIDUCT ducting system, products that have been designed to expel air efficiently.
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.

If ducting externally, assemble and fit ducting as per manufacturer’s instruction.
Optional: If desired, the one-way butterfly valve can now be fitted to the exit opening of the rangehood by simply snapping the two pieces into place.
Test 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.
Position 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.
