About Cooker Hood
Q1: How do I determine the best cooker hood for my kitchen?
Step 1: Decide the style of your cooker hood:wall mount or under cabinet.
Step 2: Measure the width of the location where you plan to install the cooker hood. And then, use the measurement to choose the appropriate cooker hood.
Step 3:Determine whether you need a chimney or not. Most cooker hood installations require a distance of 660mm to 740mm between the bottom of the hood and the cooking surface. To determine if you need chimneys or not, simply measure the distance from the cooking surface to the ceiling and then minus the 650mm to 750mm distance, and subtract the height of the hood itself. That is the distance in which you’ll need to install chimneys.

Q8: Did I received a wrong size, which is 65CM printed on the carton?
No. 65CM is the Box size, instead of the cooker hood.
Q9: Common equipment usage problems：
Rattling noises or vibrations:
Please check all small parts are properly connected and no other objects or the power cable are touching the fan wheel. Basically, if the cross-section of the exhaust air line is too small, the motor will turn a little faster because it cannot remove as much air. The engine will then start to hum and vibrate.Note: An extractor hood will only run quietly and with little vibration if the exhaust air duct is properly laid.
In addition to the air exhaust duct pipe, it is particularly important in modern houses that there is a sufficient supply of air. If no air comes in, it cannot be conveyed outside.
Q10: Rust spots on stainless steel surfaces:
Rust stains on stainless steel surfaces can occur if the wrong cleaning agents are used. When cleaning with vinegar cleaner, there may be problems with rust formation. These rust stains can be easily removed with a stainless steel cleaner in the initial stage. Please do not use any vinegar-based cleaning agents. Stains on stainless steel - looks like discolored: Please use a stainless steel cleaner.
Q11: Why did I receive a blue cooker hood instead of stainless steel?
That is a protective film. Our extractor hoods are protected from shipping damage with an adhesive film. If you remove them, glue residue may be left behind. The best thing to do is to remove this by your hair dryer using hot air. Scratches on the shaft of the hood in the region around the logo. Scratches on the shaft of the hood around the logo are usually only glue residues that can be easily removed with cleaning agents.
