Height of rangehood

Please read the entire instructions BEFORE installing the rangehood.

  • Ascertain the desired installation height of the rangehood.
  • When installing the rangehood, the lower edge of the unit must be a minimum of 600 mm above electric cooktop surface; 650 mm above gas cooktop cooking surface; and up to a maximum of 750 mm.
  • Any installation above 750 mm will compromise the extraction performance.

Venting options

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


We recommend rangehoods be vented outside, recirculating installation is recommended only when vented installation is not possible. For optimal efficiency, use smooth-walled ducting. Flexible ducting should only be used as last resort; it may reduce performance and increase noise.

  • We recommend to use top extraction for venting.

  • Top extraction (125 mm round ducting) and rear extraction (100 mm round ducting) can be used in conjunction with this model.







Recirculating installation is recommended only when vented installation is not possible.

  • HS60LRX4 is designed for front recirculating installations only.

  • HS60LXW4 can be installed in front recirculating, or can be ducted.

    Accessories are required.

  • HS60XW4 and HS90X4 can be installed to recirculate through cabinetry with ducting, or ducted outside.

* In recirculating mode you must use carbon filters to eliminate cooking smells and tall handle (70 mm).


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

Fig.1 Preparing for install


1. Preparing the rangehood for installation:

  • Before commencement, unpack the rangehood and check that it functions correctly.

  • Ensure the overhead cabinets are built according to the minimum clearances table on 'Installation instructions'.

  • Before drilling any holes, check that the area behind the surface to be drilled is clear of any electrical cables or pipes etc.

Ducted installation

(HS60LXW4, HS60XW4, HS90X4)
If the rangehood is to be installed as a ducted hood:

  • Do not remove cover tape (A), See Fig.1. This is removed for recirculating only.
  • Place adaptor in top extraction.
  • Place cover on rear extraction.
  • Front Recirculating installation

(HS60LXW4, HS60LRX4)
If the rangehood is to be installed as a recirculating hood:

  • Remove cover tape (A), see Fig.1.
  • Place covers on rear and top extraction.
  • Install carbon filters see 'Cleaning and maintenance'.
  • Assemble tall handle (70 mm)

2. Mounting the rangehood

Mounting to underside of cupboard

Fix the rangehood to a shelf mounted
at the right height in your wall units, by drilling 4 holes, 7 mm in diameter, (see Fig.2) and fixing with the 4 screws supplied. When installing the rangehood the space between the product and the wall shall be covered with the adjustable lateral and rear spacer supplied (Fig.3 and Fig.4).
