    • Clean more often if cooking with grease, frying foods, or wok cooking.
  2. After installing the filters, hold the DELAY key until "FF" appears to reset the error code.
  3. If "FG" continues to appear on the hood after these troubleshooting steps are complete, service is necessary to expertly diagnose and repair the product. Contact Factory Certified Service to schedule an appointment for repair.
