Cleaning and Maintenance


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.


The ventilation hood 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 ventilation hood.

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

Aluminum filters

  • Depending on use, and at least once a month, the aluminum filters should be removed and cleaned with hot soapy water or in a dishwasher.
  • If washed in a dishwasher, the filter should be placed in an upright position to prevent food from falling on them.
  • After rinsing and drying, refit the filters.

Some discoloration of the frames may occur.

Removing the aluminum 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 ventilation hood has been turned off. Use new bulbs according to that indicated on the ventilation hood nameplate.

Carbon filters – for use in recirculation mode

Active carbon filters are disposable items designed to remove grease and odors from cooking vapors before the air is channeled back into the kitchen. The active carbon filters must be replaced periodically to work properly, at least once every three months, depending on the frequency with which the ventilation hood is used.

Fully saturated carbon filters can become a barrier to air movement therefore limiting ventilation hood 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 the aluminum filters
  2. Lightly push the light bulb up and rotate anti-clockwise to remove
  3. Replace light bulb with a light bulb no more powerful than that specified
  4. Refit the aluminum filters
