Cleaning your rangehood
The proper function of the rangehood requires regular maintenance operations.
The anti-grease filters capture the grease particles suspended in the air, and are therefore subject to clogging according to the frequency of the use of the appliance.
In order to prevent fire hazards, it is recommendable to clean the filters at least every 2 months by carrying out the following instructions:
– Remove the filters from the rangehood and wash them in a solution of water and neutral liquid detergent, leaving to soak.
– Rinse thoroughly with warm water and leave to dry.
– Washing the filters in a dishwasher may discolor the aluminum.
Before removing the filters, you should remove the outside filter first, then pull the slide-out shell to the farthest distance position prior to removing the inside filter.
When installing the filters, install the inside filter first with the slideout shell in the farthest distance position, and then install the outside filter.
The aluminum filters may alter in color after several washes.
This is not caused for customer complaints nor the replacement of filters.
Clean the fan and other surfaces of the cooker hood regularly using a cloth moistened with denatured alcohol or non-abrasive liquid detergent.
Charcoal filters (recirculating mode)
Replacing the Charcoal filters
These filters are not washable and cannot be regenerated, and must be replaced approximately every 4 months of operation, or more frequently with heavy usage.
Remove the anti-grease filters
Remove the saturated charcoal filters.
Fit the new charcoal filters.
Replace the anti-grease filters.
