Cleaning and maintenance

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.

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

  • 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.

Aluminium filters

  • Depending on use, and at least once a month, the aluminium 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, refit the filters.

Some discolouration of the frames may occur.

Removing the aluminium filters:

  1. Pull the relative catch, tilting the filter downwards until it disengages from the supports.

  2. Reverse these instructions when refitting the filters.



 

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

  • Use bulbs with an aluminium reflector to replace halogen bulbs. Do not use dichroic bulbs – there is a risk of overheating.

  • On rangehoods equipped with tungsten lamps, the lights should only be used during operation of the motor. They should not be left on permanently and used as a light source.

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 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.

 Replacing the light bulb

Replacement bulbs are not covered by warranty.

  1. Remove aluminium grease filter.

  2. Replace light bulb with a light bulb no more powerful than that specified.

  3. Refit the aluminium filter.
