Rangehood installation height above the cooktop is the user’s preference. This rangehood must be installed between the minimum and maximum height limits indicated in the table above. Installation at the lower height limit will improve the efficiency of capturing cooking odours, grease and smoke.

* Induction cooking considerations
  • Induction cooktops use energy efficient technology that only heats the contents of a cooking pot.
  • Unlike gas or traditional electric cooktops, the surrounding air does not get heated when using an induction cooktop. As a result, rangehood filters, splashbacks and surrounding cabinetry do not get warmed up, increasing the likelihood of condensation on these cooler surfaces.
  • Other factors like ambient temperature, humidity, natural ventilation of the room, size of the cookware and how the induction cooktop is being used also influence condensation. For example, aggressive boiling on high cooktop heat settings like PowerBoost increases the rate at which water is evaporated, increasing the likelihood of condensation.
  • It is important to understand that neither the rangehood nor the induction cooktop are faulty as a result of this phenomenon.
Condensation can be minimised by:
  • Installing the rangehood at the maximum height above the cooktop as specified in this user guide.

  • Using the rangehood on a lower speed setting when boiling.

  • Using the induction cooktop on a lower heat setting when boiling.

  • Switching the rangehood on 5 minutes before cooking and letting it run for at least 5 minutes after cooking. Refer to the ‘Operating instructions’ section on how to use the timer function.

Venting options

Attention should be given to ensure that any applicable regulations concerning the discharge of exhaust air are fulfilled.

The rangehood can be installed to operate with the exhaust air ducted externally from the kitchen, or installed to operate in recirculation mode with the exhaust air recirculating within the kitchen.

Ducted externally

For an externally ducted installation it is recommended that 150 mm diameter, rigid or semi-rigid ducting is used. This will require a 160 mm (min) round hole in the ceiling or wall. Care should be taken to position the hole correctly.

For optimal efficiency use the shortest and straightest duct route possible and use rigid or semi-rigid ducting for reduced noise and increased airflow. Flexible metal ducting should only be used as a last resort (ie in difficult installations) and if used ensure that it is straight and smooth and extended as much as possible.

Recirculation mode

To enable the product to operate with the air recirculating within the kitchen, please purchase a recirculation diverter and carbon filters (refer to the ‘Parts and accessories’ section). The recirculation diverter is installed after a short length of ducting and is required to channel the air out the side vents at the top of the chimney and the carbon filters are required to remove odours.

A ducting hole is not required in the wall or ceiling if the rangehood is installed to operate in recirculation mode.

  • This appliance is heavy and requires two persons for unpacking and installation

  • Installation work and electrical wiring must be done by qualified person(s) in accordance with all applicable codes and standards.

  • Failure to install the screws or fixing device in accordance with these instructions may result in electrical hazards

Wear gloves to protect against sharp edges.

The manufacturer is not liable for any damage caused by not following these instructions.

Installation
  1. Preparing for installation:
    Before installing your rangehood:
  • Please read the instructions carefully.
  • Unpack the rangehood and check that all functions are working.
  • Ensure that the voltage (V) and the frequency (Hz) indicated on the serial plate match the voltage and frequency at the installation site.
  • Check that the area behind the installation surface to be drilled is clear of any electrical cables or pipes, etc.
  • The stainless steel and glass surfaces of the rangehood are very easily damaged during installation if grazed or knocked by tools. Please take care to protect the surfaces during installation.
  • Protect the cooktop surface below with cardboard, or the like, to prevent damage occurring whilst the rangehood is being installed above.
  • Temporarily mark the height of the bottom of the rangehood and the centre of the cooktop on the wall according to the information given in the ‘Installation instructions
    • Height of rangehood’ section.
  • The wall used for mounting the rangehood should have sufficient strength and a flat surface.
  1. Attach chimney brackets and hood mounting screws
  • Attach the chimney bracket and upper chimney bracket (if using the upper chimney) in the locations shown in Fig.2 and 3. Use the 30 mm screws and expansion plugs if attaching to masonry.
  • Attach the upper hood mounting screws in the locations shown in Fig.2 and 3. Use the 30 mm screws and expansion plugs if attaching to masonry. Ensure that there is a 2 mm gap between the screw head and the wall – see Fig.1.

  1. Attach ducting adapter
  • Place the ducting adapter onto the hood and screw it in place using the 10 mm screws.
  1. Attach hood to wall

  • Remove filters and air flow balancing plate from hood as shown in Fig.4.

 

  • Hang hood off upper hood mounting screws with 2 mm gap. Hang off the keyhole attachment points on the back of the hood (see Fig.5). Tighten screws.
  • Attach lower hood mounting screws to fix hood to wall.
  • Reattach air flow balancing plate and filters.
  1. Attach ducting
  • Attach ducting to ducting adapter using aluminium duct tape.
  1. Attach chimney
  • Bend the tabs on the chimney (A).
  • Place chimney around the hood chassis and hang off the bracket (B).
  • Extend the upper chimney and attach to the chimney bracket with 10 mm screws (C).
