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

The rangehood should be cleaned regularly using warm water with soap or mild liquid detergents. This ensures that no build-up of grease occurs as these deposits are corrosive. Do not use abrasives or harsh detergents/cleaning fluids.

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

Aluminum filters

The grease filter must be periodically cleaned (at least every two months). Remove the grease filter and wash either by hand using hot soapy water or place in the dishwasher with recommended dishwashing detergent for your dishwasher.

  • Some discolouration of the frames may occur.
  • When installing or replacing a filter, remove the protective plastic covering from the filter.

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.

Carbon filter for all recirculating installations

(Optional: HS60LXW4, HS60XW4, HS90X4)
(With product: HS60LRX4)

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 every three months, depending on the frequency with which the rangehood is used.

  • Fully saturated carbon filters can become a barrier to air movement, impeding the rangehood’s performance.

  • In the event of fire, fully grease laden filters could be flammable and therefore regular replacement is recommended.

Replacement

To replace carbon filters (C), proceed as follows:

  1. Remove aluminium filter (A).
  2. To remove carbon filter undo and remove the screw (B).
  3. To install follow above steps in reversed order.
