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

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 with the exhaust air recirculating within the kitchen.

Ducted

For 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.

Recirculating

To enable the product to operate with the air recirculating, please purchase a recirculation diverter and carbon filters (refer to the ‘Parts and accessories’ section). The recirculation diverter 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 with exhaust air recirculating.

  • This product is heavy and requires two persons for 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.
  •  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 all functions are working.
  • Check that the area behind the installation surface to be drilled is clear of any electrical cables or pipes, etc.
  • The rangehood surfaces can be damaged during installation if grazed or knocked by tools. Please take care to protect the surfaces during installation.
  • Protect the cooktop surface 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 rangehood mounting screws to the wall

  • Attach the chimney bracket and upper chimney bracket in the location shown in Fig. 2 and Fig. 3. Use the 30 mm screws (and expansion plugs if attaching to masonry).
  • Attach the upper rangehood mounting screws in the locations shown in Fig. 2 and Fig. 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).

3. Attach the ducting adapter to the rangehood

  • Place the ducting adapter onto the rangehood and screw it in place using the 10 mm screws.

4. Wall mounting

  • Remove the filters – pull the relative catch and tilt the filter downwards until it disengages from the supports.

 

  • Hang the rangehood off the upper rangehood mounting screws with 2 mm gap. Hang off the keyhole attachment points on the back of the rangehood then tighten the screws.

  • Attach the lower rangehood mounting screws to fix the rangehood to the wall.

  • Refit the filters.

5. Attach ducting

  • Attach ducting to the ducting adapter using aluminium duct tape and vent outside.

6. Attach chimney

  • Bend the tabs on the chimney (A).

  • Place chimney around the hood chassis and hang off the bracket (B).
