  • Q: What is the minimal distance required between the cooktop and the hood?

    A:

    For a Whirlpool gas hob of less than 7500W power the minimum distance is 65cm. For hobs over 7500W the minimum distance is 75cm. Electric hobs should be 65cm apart.

  • Q: How do I clean the glass on my oven?

    A:

    Use glass cleaner and soft cloth or sponge. Apply glass cleaner to soft cloth or sponge, do not spray directly. Do not use abrasive cleaners, steel-wool pads, gritty wash cloths or some paper towels as damage can occur. If using paper towels, check on the packaging that they are suitable first, some may cause damage.

  • Q: I cannot install external ducting for my cooker hood. Is recirculation a good idea?

    A:

    Yes. All Whirlpool hoods can be used in ducted or recirculation modes. Recirculation removes unpleasant odours and fat from the air that passes through it and blows the air back into the kitchen. This system does not reduce the humidity of the air so the humidity in your kitchen can increase. Do not connect a motorless hood to a central ventilation system.

  • Q: How do I clean and care for my stainless steel surfaces?

    A:

    Some suggestions for cleaning and caring for stainless steel surfaces:

    • Use stainless steel cleaner and polish. Use liquid detergent or all-purpose cleaner. Rinse with clean water and dry with soft, lint-free cloth.
    • Use vinegar for hard water spots Do not use soap-filled scouring pads, abrasive cleaners, Cooktop Polishing Cream, steel-wool pads, gritty wash cloths. or some paper towels. Damage can occur.

  • Q: Do I need special filters for a circulation hood?

    A:

    Yes, you would need a special fat and odour filter. This is usually a cartridge filled with odour absorbing grains of carbon. It is important that the filter is replaced regularly, see the manual for instructions.
