Rated 2 out of 5 Not so German engeneering
As usual, right after one year warranty expired, the hood started to malfunction. It is a slideout and it is activating the fan when panel is slided forward. It stopped. After troubleshooting I found that it is a micro-switch for slider mechanism that is defective. Trouble is - there is no way to access the switch to repair or replace without taking the whole thing down.(it's inside the cabinet) Who would put a mechanical switch right above the cooking area with grease and smoke. Switch is probably gummed up. For this money I would expect some more modern sensors like enclosed magnetic etc. Poor engineering. I have full of Miele kitchen and see a lot of small things that are not thought out in design. Worrisome.
