Revision V3 23/09/21
- Please read this section thoroughly before attempting to install or operate the rangehood. Inspect your product upon receipt. Any damage or defects MUST be reported within 48 hours, or no claim will be recognised.
- Before installing the electrical connections, you should:
- Verify that the indicated electrical data coincide with the voltage values and frequency of the electrical circuit in the house where the rangehood is to be installed;
- Check that the premises has electrical protection against short circuits and electrocution, pursuant to the applicable legislation;
- Always switch off the current using the double-pole switch before maintenance and turn the power on again for normal use only when the operation has been completed.
- DO NOT INSTALL THIS APPLIANCE IF YOU FIND IT DAMAGED.
- If this product is installed damaged, neither the supplier, nor the retailer, will be responsible for the
costs associated with the repair, replacement, removal, or re-installation of the appliances.
- Please read the entire instructions before installing the range hood, always switch power off prior to
installation. All electrical work must be done by a registered electrician in accordance with local and national electrical codes as applicable. For your safety, this product must be earthed.
- The power socket must be accessible and enable the end user to isolate the rangehood from the power for the purpose of internal cleaning or maintenance.
- Check the contents of the packaging, check all electrical functions of the canopy before installation. Canopy is heavy. Please ensure adequate care when installing to prevent personal injury.
- A power outlet should be within reach of the power cord exit from the rangehood.
- The canopy hood is not intended for use by persons (including children) with reduced physical, sensory or metal capabilities, or lack of experience and knowledge, unless they have been given supervision or instruction concerning use of the appliance by a person responsible for their safety.
- Children should be supervised to ensure that they do not play with the appliance.

Maintenance and Service
- Always switch off and disconnect power before cleaning.
- The rangehood surface should be cleaned with soft cloth and non-corrosive detergent. Wash with warm soapy water and a soft sponge. Never use abrasive detergent, scouring pads, steel wool or solvents on any part of this appliance, Always make sure to dry the appliance after cleaning and never leave wet, as this will cause irreparable damage.
- Clean the interior of the rangehood with a damp cloth and a neutral detergent or denatured alcohol.
- For better results, you can use high quality cleaning and protection products (e.g. Steel Kleen) to clean rangehood.
- Do not leave the rangehood surface wet after cleaning.
- Particular care must be taken with the aluminium filters which must be periodically cleaned (at least every month, this will vary depending on frequency of cooking and type of foods cooked). Remove the grease filters and wash them either by hand using hot soapy water or in the dishwasher using mild detergent. Do not scrub. Note – some discolouration of the frame may occur when washing in the dishwasher Caution: Never use abrasive or oil based liquid cleaners.
- If the grease filters are very dirty, the motor will extract only a small quantity of air, which reduces its efficiency. The grease deposits that build up on the filter are highly flammable and COULD EASILY CATCH FIRE. The manufacturer is exonerated from all responsibility in the event of fire due to poor maintenance of the grease filters.
- Important: Never attempt to repair this appliance by yourself. Always refer to a qualified Service Technician. Remember to always switch off the electricity and unplug the connection before conducting maintenance or cleaning.
LED Bulb Replacement
- Switch off the power to the canopy hood and allow the bulb to cool.
- Remove the bulb by turning it by hand in an anti clockwise direction
- Care must be taken to avoid the bulb falling onto the hob top
- Replace the bulb by inserting it into the socket and hand turning in a clockwise direction
Ensure the supply cord is not exposed to heat, chemicals, or sharp objects. If the supply cord is damaged, it must be replaced by the manufacturer, service agent, or a similarly qualified person in order to avoid a hazard.
- This product is designed for household use and should not be used outside or for commercial applications. After use, always ensure that all controls are in the “OFF” position. When frying with a gas flame, take particular care not to allow the oil or grease in the pan to catch fire. (Flambé)

Please use this as a guide only when designing your cabinet. Alternatively, present the rangehood to your cabinet maker so that they may take their own measurements and check that the rangehood fits in the cabinet correctly.
Note: Please make sure that all plastic protection on the rangehood and filters are removed before use.
Note: Dimensions may be subject to change.
Rangehood Size vs Cooktop Size
In addition to the size, the height of the rangehood above the cooktop is important to obtain the best performance.
Rangehood smaller than
Rangehood same size as
Rangehood larger than
Overhead cabinet Rangehood Installation position
It is important to consider the benchtop and overhead cabinetry depth before installing the rangehood.
The information below is to be used as a guide only, drawings are not to scale and do not account for all circumstances.
The cooktop is centrally installed in the benchtop in the diagrams below.
When the overhead cabinetry is constructed and installed deeper than standard, ensure the rangehood is installed as close to the front as possible. This will increase the rangehood extraction results as there is a greater coverage of the cooktop surface area.
It is STRONGLY RECOMMENDED that the rangehood be installed centrally over the cooktop. This will greatly improve its performance.
Minimum height from the hob top surface to the underside face of the rangehood:
- 600mm electric cooktop
- 600mm gas cooktop
Any installation above 800mm will compromise the extraction performance.
Note: If the instructions for the gas cooktop specify a greater distance, this must be taken into account.
Measurements are from the top of the trivets to the lowest part of the rangehood, including the button controls.
*IMPORTANT: If the user decides to install the rangehood at a distance of less than minimum height above the cooking surface, Schweigen declines responsibility for damages suffered by the rangehood due to excess heat or damage to objects, people and others caused directly or indirectly by a malfunction, breakage or fire.
Recommended Installation Height for Induction Cooktop
To help avoid condensation, particular to cooking with an induction cooktop, Schweigen recommends a height of 700mm. Refer to page xx for further information.
* Important: Please check all State and Federal Laws in relation to the minimum-maximum heights, regulations concerning the expelling of air and install your rangehood in accordance with local laws and regulations.
The diagrams below are a guide for all mounting points.
Mounting point A and B need to be tighter with slightly angled screws to pull the rangehood up tight to the cabinet.
These support screws insert from the bottom of the rangehood.
These support screws insert from the inside of the cabinet.
NOTE: For more information, please refer to motor installation guide.

- Support Straps*
- Attach Flexi Duct to BellMouth Adaptor using duct tape and cable tie. DO NOT rip the ducting.
- Motor Power Lead (Male Plug)
- Rangehood to Motor Lead (Female Plug)
- Main Power Lead (Male Plug)
- Flexi Ducting must be pulled taut. DO NOT crush or kink the ducting. Keep ducting secured in place.
- Connect flexi ducting to the outlet on rangehood using duct tape or cable tie. Please DO NOT rip the ducting.
* NOTE: The motor system does not include a roof seal kit, support straps, duct tape and cable ties.
There is a separate Motor Installation Guide in the Motor Box.
IMPORTANT: For the motor to operate efficiently, do not crush or kink the flexi ducting, as it will reduce air flow and may cause noise to occur through the system. Ducting needs to be kept taut at all times.
Cooking with Induction Cooktops
Cooking with an induction or similar cooktop, may produce condensation on the rangehood.
Unlike basic electric or gas cooking, induction cooktops heat food and liquid instantly, which in turn, produces vapours rapidly. Because of this rapid process, the rangehood filters do not have enough time to warm, which increases the chance of condensation forming. There are many variables that may contribute to condensation forming, some of which include but are not limited to:
- Variance in climate – geographical location
- Position of your home & kitchen – morning/afternoon sun
- Installation distance from cooktop to the rangehood
- Speed of food & liquid heating
- Angle of ducting – Sshweigen ‘S’ bend preferred
- Filter size – larger canopy preferred
- Quality of pots or cookware you are using – high quality recommended
How to reduce the possibility of condensation forming:
- Ensure the rangehood is installed by a qualified professional, carefully following the installation guide
- Turn on the rangehood 5-10 minutes prior to cooking, and leave on for 5-10 minutes after cooking; this helps clear remaining vapours from the flue.
- Start the cooking process at a low-to-medium setting and allow time for the rangehood to warm up.
- Clean filters regularly.
- Ensure constant airflow in the cooking zone; this helps optimise the rate of extraction.
- Follow all induction cooktop manufacturer advice.
For further advice, tips or information regarding cooking with induction, please contact your induction cooktop manufacturer.
