Your State Regulatory Authority

Different Australian states have varying legislative requirements for the installation of rangehood ducting. Some will insist on ducting being vented externally (i.e. not into the ceiling cavity); others will not. It is imperative that you check with your state building authority and/or private certifier to confirm their position.

Product Use

This product is designed for household use and should not be used 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)

Ducted or Recirculating?

Ducted range hoods (or extractor range hoods) extract the cooking fumes from the kitchen and expel them from the space via ducting. Good design practice would always see a fire-rated ducting system extend to the house exterior, rather than to the ceiling cavity. When a range hood is ducted only into the ceiling space, the collection of humidity and grease can present very real health issues and fire hazards.
Recirculating (or non-ducted or filtered) range hoods extract cooking fumes and pass them through filters. As the name would suggest, they recirculate this air back into the room. Recirculating range hoods are not as effective as removing fumes from a kitchen space, but they are sometimes the only option due to budgetary or building constraints. You should be made aware of the requirement to change and clean filters on a regular basis for the optimum efficiency of air filtering.

Electrical Cord

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.

Cleaning & Maintenance

schweigen SCC1200-S Rangehood Installation Guide  & troubleshooting 4Warning
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 SCC1200-S 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 range hood.
  • 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.
Filters

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

  • The function of the filter is to absorb the grease particles given off during cooking.
  • Clogged filters and heavy oil deposits restrict airflow and may cause the motor to overheat and become a fire hazard.
  • Filters 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 filters 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 filters 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 the filter press handle and remove it through the front guide; bend it slightly and remove the filter. To replace, perform the same operation but in reverse.schweigen SCC1200-S Rangehood Installation Guide  & troubleshooting 6schweigen SCC1200-S Rangehood Installation Guide  & troubleshooting 7Warning

  • 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 upon the filter are highly flammable and COULD EASILY CATCH FIRE.
  • The manufacturer is exonerated from all responsibility in the event of a fire due to poor maintenance of the grease filters.

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 10-15 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.
