Rangehood care

  • Powder-coated and stainless steel surfaces of your Robinhood rangehood should be regularly cleaned with a clean, damp cloth (washable micro-knit cleaning cloths are ideal).
  • Specialised stainless steel cleaners and spray on cleaners are safe, but avoid using regular abrasive cleaners because they could damage the surface.

Filter cleaning for ducted rangehoods

  • If your rangehood is ducted (air is expelled out the wall or roof), the micromesh filter needs to be cleaned at least once a month - more often if you regularly cook with oils, butter, garlic and spices.
  • Clean the filter gently with a dishwash brush in a sink full of hot water and detergent; alternatively, you can put your filter through the dishwasher. Some discolouration of the filter frame may occur if washed in the dishwasher.
  • You should also clean the area that becomes visible when you remove the filter. This is best done with spray-on cleaner and a sponge or paper towels. Always disconnect the power supply first.
  • Do not use the hood without filters.

Filter maintenance for recirculating rangehoods

  • If your rangehood recirculates air through a special charcoal filter, you will need to replace the filter regularly.
  • We recommend replacement every two to four months, depending on how much cooking you do. Replacement filters are available from Robinhood stockists.
  • Fully saturated charcoal filters can become a barrier to air movement and limit the performance of your rangehood; they can also be a fire danger when laden with grease.
  • You should also clean the area that becomes visible when you remove the filter. This is best done with spray-on cleaner and a sponge or paper towels. Always disconnect the power supply first.

Replacing lightbulbs

  • The light bulbs on all Robinhood rangehoods are easily replaced. Instructions can be found in the operating manual that came with your rangehood.
  • Replacement light bulbs can be purchased from specialist lighting stores. It's a good idea to bring the expired bulb with you, so that you can obtain an exact match.
