Care and Cleaning

Removing and Cleaning the Filter: To remove, slide it to the rear using the tab. Pull it down and out. To clean the grease filter, soak it and then swish it around in hot water and detergent. Don’t use ammonia or ammonia products because they will darken the metal. Light brushing can be used to remove embedded dirt. Rinse, shake and let it dry before replacing. To replace, slide the filter in the frame slot on the back of the opening. Pull up and to the front to lock into place.

Reusable Grease Filters: The metal filters trap grease released by foods on the cooktop. They also prevent flames from foods on the cooktop from damaging the inside of the microwave. For this reason, the filters must ALWAYS be in place when the hood is used. The grease filters should be cleaned once a month, or as needed.
