Always switch off and disconnect power before cleaning.

Cleaning the Interior
Clean the interior of the range hood with a damp cloth and a neutral detergent or denatured alcohol.
NOTE: Do not use denatured alcohol on the exterior of the rangehood. Do not clean the electric parts or the motor with liquids or solvents

Cleaning the Exterior
We recommended using a soft cloth, water, and liquid soap, rinsing it well, and then drying it thoroughly.
For better results, you can use high-quality cleaning and protection products (e.g. Steel Kleen) to clean your rangehood.

schweigen HN-2OC 85cm Exclusive Undermount Rangehood Installation Guide  & troubleshooting 5 • The recommended detergent is a solution of water and neutral liquid soap.
• It is very important for the liquid soap to not contain granules that could scratch the surface.
• First apply the solution to a soft cloth and then rub the cloth over the range hood. It is important to follow the direction of the stained surface with the cloth (refer to figure on left).
• Do not pour any liquid directly onto the rangehood.
• The cloth must have no buttons, zips, or fasteners that could scratch the surface.
• It is strictly forbidden to use chemical solvents, aggressive, grainy, or abrasive products, naphtha, alcohol, or similar products that could damage the surface of the range hood.
• The manufacturer will not be held responsible for functional or aesthetic damage caused by cleaning with products that are not suitable or using inadequate cleaning methods.

Baffles
For this appliance to function effectively, regular maintenance is a must.

  • The function of the baffle is to collect the grease particles given off during cooking.
  • Clogged heavy oil deposits restrict airflow and may cause the motor to overheat and become a fire hazard.
  • Baffles should be cleaned every 3-6 weeks or after 40 hours of use.
  • For induction cooktops, please aim to clean them at least every 10 days, depending on use.
  • The baffles can be washed by hand or in the dishwasher.
    Washing by hand – Immerse the filter in hot water and a suitable detergent and when clean, rinse with plenty of hot water.
    Dishwasher – Put the filter in the dishwasher and select a short program at low temperature.

NOTE: The color of the metal mesh filters may change after several washes. This is normal and it is not necessary to change the filters.
Please ensure the baffles are completely dry before placing them back in position and operating the rangehood.

Endure the baffles are cool before removing, to ensure no oil is spilled.
To remove, push away from you until the near edge clears the slot. Then carefully pull down and back to remove. To replace, perform the same operation but in reverse.

Installation

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.

schweigen HN-2OC 85cm Exclusive Undermount Rangehood Installation Guide  & troubleshooting 12

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 on the benchtop in the diagrams below.

schweigen HN-2OC 85cm Exclusive Undermount Rangehood Installation Guide  & troubleshooting 13

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 greater coverage of the cooktop surface area.

Mounting Instructions
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:

  • 650mm electric cooktop
  • 650mm 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.

Recommended Installation Height for Induction Cooktop
To help avoid condensation, particularly to cooking with an induction cooktop, Schweigen recommends a height between 700-750mm. Refer to page 19 for further information.

schweigen HN-2OC 85cm Exclusive Undermount Rangehood Installation Guide  & troubleshooting 14

Measurements are from the top of the trivets to the lowest part of the range hood, including the button controls.

*IMPORTANT: If the user decides to install the rangehood at a distance of less than the 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.

*Important: In addition to the information in this manual, please check all relevant state requirements for minimum– maximum heights, as well as regulations regarding the expelling of air. Schweigen is not liable if your range hood is not installed in accordance with these legal requirements. 

Mounting Points for Body
The diagram below is a guide for all mounting points.

Ducting
The ducting diameter MUST be 150mm. The overall length of the ducting should not be greater than 4 meters.
Please DO NOT crush or kink the ducting.

schweigen HN-2OC 85cm Exclusive Undermount Rangehood Installation Guide  & troubleshooting 20 1. Crushed or kinked ducting creates sharp corners that create turbulence.
This reduces the size and efficiency of the ducting, lowers extraction, and may cause excessive noise.
2. Sweeping curves and taut ducting reduce resistance and turbulence.
The airflow and extraction will be more efficient and stronger.

Back Draft Fins (For applicable models)
The supplied ducting has been manufactured with an allowance for the backdraft fins to operate without hindrance. It is the smooth extended end of the ducting.
When installing Back Draft Fins, please ensure that you insert the Back Draft Fins onto the backdraft base, which is attached to the top of the motor outlet before installation. Then place the smooth extended edge of the ducting into the backdraft base and fix it securely. Should your Back Draft Fins get stuck, this is not a warranty issue.

Ducting Advice

RECOMMENDED

schweigen HN-2OC 85cm Exclusive Undermount Rangehood Installation Guide  & troubleshooting 22 schweigen HN-2OC 85cm Exclusive Undermount Rangehood Installation Guide  & troubleshooting 23
Straight ducting is the most effective installation Keep the curves or bends to a minimum. If they do exist, try to keep the angles as open as possible.

AVOID

schweigen HN-2OC 85cm Exclusive Undermount Rangehood Installation Guide  & troubleshooting 24 schweigen HN-2OC 85cm Exclusive Undermount Rangehood Installation Guide  & troubleshooting 25
Never reduce flue diameter right next to the rangehood outlet fitting. Never fit reductions next to curves or bends in the installations. They must always be in straight sections and as far as possible from the rangehood.
schweigen HN-2OC 85cm Exclusive Undermount Rangehood Installation Guide  & troubleshooting 26 schweigen HN-2OC 85cm Exclusive Undermount Rangehood Installation Guide  & troubleshooting 27
Avoid excessive reduction of the flue size, as this drastically reduces extraction capacity. You should not have more than one blend in the installation.

Roof Cowls / Roof Seal Kit

ELInZ BCSMART20 8 Stage Automatic Battery Charger - WARNING WARNING

* Rangehood does not include the roof seal/roof cowls, ring clamp, or support straps.
For the best result, please install ducting in a straight line and duct length no longer than 4 meters.
Do not reduce the ducting diameter, this will reduce airflow.

Condensation Information

Cooking with Induction Cooktops
Cooking with induction or a similar cooktop may produce condensation on the range hood.
Unlike basic electric or gas cooking, induction cooktops heat food and liquid instantly, which in turn, produces vapors 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
  • 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 range hood 5-10 minutes prior to cooking, and leave it on for 5-10 minutes after cooking; this helps clear remaining vapors 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 optimize 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.

Troubleshooting

If the product does not work:
Before you contact the technical service department, make sure that the product is plugged in, the electric fuse (on selected models) is incorrectly and the electric wiring is connected. (Fuses can be purchased from your local electrical dealer or hardware store). Weak air suction may be caused by backdraft fins remaining closed. Do not take any action that will damage the product.
