Hood stops during use



If the hood stops during use, refer to the suggestions below for step by step instructions.

Possible causes:

 Tripped safety switch.

  • To proceed, switch off the cooker and the hood, wait 5 minutes, and switch the appliance back on.
  • This should give the hood sufficient time to cool down and reset the appliance.

A large number of boiling saucepans.

  • The appliance is designed to absorb odors, not large amounts of steam.

Check if the filters are clean.

  • Replace them if necessary.

Make sure the suction from the hood is sufficient.

  • Check if the air is flowing out at the air outlet on the external wall.
  • If the re-circulation function is activated, check whether the carbon filters are inserted properly.

The duct to the open air might be clogged or in the wrong size.


If this doesn't resolve the issue, contact an Authorized Service Center.
