The make is Belling Formula Three.
The model is either 60/3, I think.
The dimensions are:
Depth 300 mm
Height 150 mm
Hiya,Ok, thanks for that..Unfortunately, that's not a valid model number for your old hood..Having looked at the zhi611g (nearest I could find to the number you posted) it would appear that this is a larger unit than the one you have presently fitted..If you can fit this in place then you will need to slightly modify the ducting to get it to fit.If the existing ducting is flexible hose (like the hose on a tumble dryer) then it's easy, if not, it would need to be looked at to see what needs doing..Check out the dimensions of the new unit and see if it will fit the space you have.Check the decor door from the old hood will fit the new one too..In direct answer to your actual question, no, this zanussi hood wouldn't be a direct replacement for your old hood (based on the measurements provided)..Let me know what you find or if you need more help.Thanks.
Thank you for your reply.
I think that I am OK with the dimensions since, if I understand correctly, the width would be the same and the Zanussi would be 30mm less deep (270mm vs 300mm for my old Belling. I can make good the decoration.
I am more concerned where you say "Check the decor door from the old hood will fit the new one too." I was assuming that the Zunussi unit would hang off the bottom of the cupboard over the cooker, as with the old Belling, so the opening of the cupboard door would not be affected. Can you confirm that please.
If the Zanussi will not be mounted under the cupboard, can you suggest another unit 598mm width and circa 300mm deep that would do that, as I am struggling to find one with any other manufacturer.
Thanks and best regards,
