Unless you like to cook in a cloud of smoke, it’s important that your cooker hood stays in tip top condition. In most cases if something goes wrong, we’d always recommend contacting a qualified engineer. However, our FAQs may help with some minor issues, whether that’s working out how often you should replace the filters or figuring out why your hood isn’t recirculating air properly.

It might be because of the ducting. If your ducting isn’t straight and moving around corners, this could be causing noise. If your hood is recirculating the air, check the filters aren’t loose, or that you’re not using it on its maximum setting all the time.
This might be because the grease filters or carbon filter are blocked or need replacing. You can easily unclip the grease filters and give them a clean to remove any grease that might be blocking the airflow.
