Resolved Question:

I have just installed a Hotpoint HTV10K cooker extractor. We have it in circulation mode, using a carbon filter. It is totally free standing and does not have a cupboard above.

The cover has to be fitted if it's set for recirculation mode.

It's covered on page 5 of the manual, but it is a little obscure.
If it's not fitted it's not actually filtering properly..
