Black Glass Hoods

  1. If FG appears on a black, V Series Ventilation Hood, remove and clean the filters using Cooktop Hood Filter Cleaning Instructions.
  2. For black hoods, after reinstalling the filters hold the DELAY key until "FF" appears on the display to reset the error code.
  3. See also:

Clean the Cooktop Hood aluminum mesh filters every month, more often if cooking with grease, frying foods, or wok cooking.


The FG icon on black glass hoods will illuminate after approximately 100 hours of operation, indicating the filters need to be cleaned on V Series Cooktop Hoods that are vented.
  • FG can often be misread as "F6."
  • Do not operate the ventilation hood without filters. This may cause damage to the blower or other internal components of the hood.
  • To reduce risk of grease fire, clean ventilation products frequently.
  • Grease should not be allowed to accumulate on the fan or filter.
The cooktop displays "FC" if a recirculating kit charcoal filter is in need of replacement.Refer to the product use and care guide for further information. To order replacement filters, contact a Factory Certified Parts Distributor to order parts.
