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. Does the hole in the top need closing off with the disc, or should it remain open. Please confirm for piece of mind. Yours Mr Barry Matthews.
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..

Hope this helps
