Cleaning and maintenance

  • Unplug or disconnect the appliance from the power supply before servicing or cleaning.

  • When replacing the bulb, let the bulb cool, and assure that power to the rangehood has been turned off. Use new bulbs according to that indicated on the rangehood nameplate.

  • Never use abrasive or oil based cleaners

  • Wear gloves to protect against sharp edges

 Maintenance

The rangehood should be cleaned regularly using a mild, liquid detergent and a clean soft cloth to avoid a build-up of grease occurring. Avoid the use of corrosive chemicals, abrasive cleaning products, hard brushes and steel wool pads. Grease deposits are corrosive which can cause damage to your rangehood.

In areas of high humidity or coastal environments, cleaning should be carried out more frequently.


Aluminum filters

  • Depending on use, and at least once a month, the aluminum grease filters should be removed and cleaned with hot soapy water or in a dishwasher.
  • If washed in a dishwasher, the filters should be placed in an upright position to prevent food from falling on them.
  • After rinsing and drying, replace the filters.

Some discolouration of the frames may occur.

Removing the aluminum filters:

  1. Open the glass panel.
  2. Pull the relative filter catch, tilting it downwards until it disengages from the supports.
  3. Reverse these instructions when refitting the filters.

Carbon filters – for use in recirculation mode

Active carbon filters are disposable items designed to remove grease and odours from cooking vapours before the air is channelled back into the kitchen. The active carbon filters must be replaced periodically to work properly, at least once every three months, depending on the frequency with which the rangehood is used.

Fully saturated carbon filters can become a barrier to air movement therefore limiting rangehood performance. In the event of fire, grease laden filters could be flammable and therefore regular replacement is recommended.

Light bulb replacement

Replacement bulbs are not covered by warranty.

  1. Open the glass panel.
  2. Remove the aluminium filters.
  3. Unscrew the light bulb.
  4. Insert the replacement bulb into the lamp socket.
  5. Replace the aluminium filters.
  6. Replace the glass panel.
