Safety Instructions

Important note:
Please read this booklet before installing and switching on this appliance. The manufacturer assumes no responsibility for incorrect installation and usage as described in this booklet.
This appliance can be used by children aged 8 years and above and persons with reduced physical, sensory or mental capabilities or lack of experience and knowledge if they have been given supervision or instruction concerning use of the appliance in a safe way and understand the hazards involved. Children shall not play with the appliance.

  • Children should be supervised to ensure that they do not play with the appliance.
  • Children must not clean the appliance or carry out general maintenance unless they are at least 8 years old and are being supervised.
  • Keep children below the age of 8 years old at a safe distance from the appliance and power cable.
  • If the supply lead is damaged it must be replaced by a qualified person using the correct lead, available from 0345 208 8750.
  • The appliance can only be used safely if it is correctly installed according to the safety instructions. The installer is responsible for ensuring that the appliance works correctly after installation.
  • This appliance is intended for domestic use and the household environment only. The appliance is not intended for use outside.
  • Do not leave the appliance unattended during operation. The manufacturer is not liable for damage which is caused by improper use or incorrect operation.
  • Check the appliance for damage after unpacking it. Do not connect the appliance if it has been damaged in transport.
  • This appliance is not intended for operation with an external clock timer or remote control.
  • Packaging material is dangerous to children. Never allow children to play with packaging material.
  • Risk of Death – Always ensure adequate fresh air in the room if the appliance is being operated in extraction-air mode at the same time as room air-dependent heat-producing appliance(s) are being operated.
  • Room air-dependent heat-producing appliances (e.g. gas, oil, wood or coal operated heaters, continuous flow heaters, or water heaters) obtain combustion air from the room in which they are installed and discharge the exhaust gases into the open air through an exhaust gas system (e.g. a chimney).
  • In combination with an activated vapor extractor hood, room air is extracted from the kitchen and neighboring rooms – a partial vacuum is produced if not enough fresh air is supplied. Toxic gases from the chimney or the extraction shaft are sucked back into the living space.
    • Adequate incoming air must therefore always be ensured.
    • An incoming/exhaust air wall box alone will not ensure compliance with the limit.
  • Safe operation is possible only when the partial vacuum in the place where the heat-producing appliance is installed does not exceed 4 Pa (0.04 bar). This can be achieved when the air needed for combustion is able to enter through openings that cannot be sealed, for example in doors, windows, incoming/ exhaust air wall boxes, or by other technical means.
  • In any case, consult your responsible Master Chimney Sweep. They will be able to assess the house’s entire ventilation setup and will suggest suitable ventilation measures to you.
  • Risk of Fire – Grease deposits in the grease filter may catch fire. Clean the
    grease filter at least every 2 months.
  • Never operate the appliance without the grease filter.
  • Grease deposits in the grease filter may catch fire. Never work with naked flames close to the appliance (e.g. flambéing). Do not install the appliance near a heat-producing appliance for solid fuel (e.g. wood or coal) unless a closed, non-removable cover is available. There must be no flying sparks.
  • Hot oil and fat can ignite very quickly. Never leave hot fat or oil unattended. Never use water to put out burning oil or fat. Switch off the hotplate. Extinguish flames carefully using a lid, fire blanket or something similar.
  • When gas burners are in operation without any cookware placed on them, they can build up a lot of heat. A ventilation appliance installed above the cooker may become damaged or catch fire. Only operate the gas burners with cookware on them.
  • Operating several gas burners at the same time gives rise to a great deal of heat. A ventilation appliance installed above the cooker may become damaged or catch fire. Never operate two gas burners simultaneously on the highest flame for longer than 15 minutes. One large burner of more than 5 kW (wok) is equivalent to the power of two gas burners.
  • The accessible parts become very hot when in operation. Never touch hot parts. Keep children at a safe distance.
  • Components inside the appliance may have sharp edges. Wear protective gloves.
  • Items placed on the appliance may fall down. Do not place any objects on the appliance.
  • A defective appliance may cause electric shock. Never switch on a defective appliance. Unplug the appliance from the mains or switch off the circuit breaker in the fuse box. Contact the after-sales service.
  • Incorrect repairs are dangerous. Repairs may only be carried out and damaged power cables replaced by one of our trained after-sales technicians. If the appliance is defective, unplug the appliance from the mains or switch off the circuit breaker in the fuse box. Contact the after-sales service.
  • Do not use any high-pressure cleaners or steam cleaners, which can result in an electric shock.
  • Always switch on the appliance while cooking to avoid condensation. Condensation can produce corrosion damage.
  • Always replace faulty bulbs to prevent the remaining bulbs from overloading.
  • Risk of damage due to ingress of humidity into the electronic circuitry. Never clean operator controls with a wet cloth. Surface damage due to incorrect cleaning. Clean stainless steel surfaces in the direction of the grain only. Do not use any stainless steel cleaners for operator controls.
  • Surface damage due to strong or abrasive cleaning agents. Never use strong and abrasive cleaning agents. Risk of damage from returning condensate. Install the exhaust duct in such a way that it falls away from the appliance slightly (1° slope).

Operating modes

This appliance can be used in extraction-air mode or circulating air mode.
Extraction-air mode
The air which is drawn in is cleaned by the grease filter and extracted outside by a hose.
Important Notes:

  • The extracted air must not be extracted into a functioning smoke, exhaust gas flue, or into a shaft that is used to ventilate installation rooms that contain heat-producing appliances.
  • Before the extracted air is extracted into a non-functioning smoke or exhaust gas flue, obtain the consent of the heating engineer responsible.
  • If the extracted air is carried through the outer wall, a telescopic wall box should be used.

Circulating-air mode
The air which is drawn in is cleaned by the grease filters and a carbon filter (carbon filter is not supplied with your appliance) and extracted back into the kitchen.
Important Note: To remove odors in circulating-air mode, you must install a carbon filter (carbon filter is not supplied with your appliance). Please contact Russell Hobbs or visit the Russell Hobbs website to purchase a carbon filter.
Dependent on use it is recommended that carbon filters are changed every 2 – 3 months.

Venting mode

Russell Hobbs RHVSRCH602SS Cooker Hood Instruction Manual  & troubleshooting 5

Dependent on the venting mode that is required you may need to change the position of the venting mode level that is situated inside the hoods next to the fan. The lever is held in place with a screw, this will need to be removed before moving the lever and then replaced.
Extraction-air mode: To vent the air outside turn the venting lever to the left. Circulation-air mode: To recirculate the air turn the venting lever to the right.

Russell Hobbs RHVSRCH602SS Cooker Hood Instruction Manual  & troubleshooting 6

If you choose the extraction-air mode, install a check valve on the vent hole.
