This answer was rated:

I have a Beaumatic isl5ss cooker hood in my new flat and am unsure whether it is in extraction or recirculation mode and am therefore unsure which filters to use, ie the square or round ones. How can I establish which mode it is in and failing that can I use both types of filter at the same time. Many thanks
HiFor this to be an extraction type, there would have to be a duct from the top of the hood to an outside wall with a vent cover there.Does it have this?ThanksRob

Hi Rob
The hood is in the middle of the room but there is a loft above so I need to look up there to see if it is ducted to the outside. If it is not can I safely assume that it's fitted in the recirculation mode and if this is the case should I be using both the round filters, that appear to be fitted on either end of the motor, and the square one which seems to go under the metal grille filters? I've downloaded an instruction manual but unfortunately it is unclear as to whether you use both types of filter if in recirculation mode.
Many thanks for your help
HiThanksokIf it is in recirculation mode (no external duct), then you need both filters and the square grease oneIf its ducted out, you jusneed the square grease filter Can I ask you to take a moment and rate myresponses so far?
