MAINTENANCE AND CLEANING
Before carrying out any maintenance or cleaning isolate the cooker hood from the mains supply. The cooker hood must be kept clean, a build up of grease or fat can be a fire hazard.
Wipe the cooker hood frequently with warm soapy water using a mild detergent. Always wear protective gloves when cleaning the hood. Never use scouring pads or abrasive cleaners. Never use excessive amounts of water when cleaning particularly around the control panel.
The charcoal filter cannot be cleaned. The filter should be replaced at least every three months or more frequently if the hood is used more than three hours per day.
To Remove/Replace the Charcoal Filter
1. Open the visor and remove the metal inlet grille. Carefully remove the screw from the centre of the charcoal filter, while holding the filter securely. Clean the metal inlet grille and motor support before replacing the charcoal filter.
