    Cleaning and care Before cleaning or servicing the hood, disconnect it from the power supply by either removing the fuse, unplugging it from the outlet or manually "tripping" the circuit breaker. Cleaning the casing Never use abrasive cleaners, scouring pads, steel wool, thinner or caustic (oven) cleaners on the hood.
