Is your kitchen hood on
but not removing undesired odours?

Let's find out together the possible reasons for this problem and how to solve it.

Does your extractor hood have free ducting?+

If you own an Elica extractor hood with an external exhaust, it is essential to keep the ducts clear.

Sometimes, the exhaust duct may be blocked, e.g. by a nest, or simply bent. We always recommend a regular check of your duct to ensure optimal performance at all times.

Also, to ensure effective airflow, the exhaust duct of your Elica hood should have a direct outward trajectory, minimising bends or angles as much as possible.


Is your hood chosen correctly? +

Choosing the ideal hood is not just a question of style, but also of functionality. First of all make sure that the Elica hood you choose has the right dimensions in relation to your hob, thus guaranteeing maximum effectiveness.

Furthermore, to obtain optimal suction, pay close attention not only to the size, but also to the installation height and suction capacity required for the size of your kitchen.

With these few precautions your Elica cooker hood will be able to guarantee you an unparalleled cooking experience.


Is your hood installed correctly? +

Every detail of the Elica cooker hood is designed for excellence: to get the most out of it, how best to position it? The key is in the installation.

In fact, if you have chosen the right hood based on the dimensions of your hob, its effectiveness will always also depend on the correct installation height and ideal range for your kitchen space.

Correct installation not only ensures optimal efficiency of the appliance, but also enhances the aesthetics and functionality of your kitchen.


Have you checked the grease and odour filters? +

To ensure the maximum efficiency of your Elica cooker hood, filter maintenance is essential.

The odour filters, which are directly involved in air filtration, can become saturated with grease and, when this happens, the hood's ability to neutralise odours is reduced. We recommend replacing these filters every three to four months.

If you want a long-term solution, the solution is our Long Life Odour Filter, which lasts a full 2 years. Finally, don't forget to regularly clean the metal grease filter; the latter is designed to be easily washed in the dishwasher, guaranteeing maximum performance of your Elica hood.
