What can I do if I cannot duct my hood to an outside wall?

If it is not possible to duct to an outside wall, you can re-circulate the air using carbon filters that fit on to the side of the motor. Your first set of carbon filters will be included inside the hood packaging. You can purchase additional carbon filters directly from us by calling Consumer Services on 0800 8046261 or 0370 7895107.

Where can I find the serial number for my hood?

The serial number is located inside the hood which is next to the motor on a white sticker (a ten digit number - see below). It is also on the user guide.
