  • The Hob2Hood function does not work with the cooker hood

  • How does the Hob2Hood function work?

Applies to

  • Cooker hoods
  • Hobs


1. Check whether the cooker hood and the hob are both equipped with the Hob2Hood function.

2. Set the Hob2Hood function as described in the user manual.

  • For most of the hoods, the remote system is originally deactivated. Activate it before you use the function.
  • For more information refer to the hood user manual. Download the user manual.

3. If the function is enabled:

  • Protect the hood panel from direct illumination by sunlight
  • Do not direct the halogen light onto the hood panel
  • Do not cover the control panel of the hob
  • Do not block the signal between the hob and the hood panel (e.g. with your hand or the handle of a dish). See the example illustration:

4. If the above suggestions have not solved the problem, we recommend requesting a visit from a service technician.
