Works well but flue cover too short
We had chosen this model as the specifications said that the flue - and we assumed, the cover- would extend to 1325 mm and we needed 1250 mm to reach our ceiling (from the top of the rangehood) . However, when the cover was unpacked it comes in 2 parts, the bottom is 540 mm and the top is 560 mm- this does not equal 1325 mm. Plenty of flexi-pipe to carry the air out, but the stainless steel cover is 100 mm too short. I called place of purchase (Appliances Online) to try and explain the issue but they were not helpful. As both the halogen bulbs ...blew on the same night only 2 weeks after installation (yes, by a qualified and licensed electrician) I have booked a warranty service call about that issue and will speak to Delonghi service person when they arrive. The "fan" part of the unit works well, is pretty quiet and efficient at removing cooking smells, steam etc but it is super annoying that the lights have blown already and the project is still unfinished without the top of the rangehood complete. So, my advice is to measure carefully. Getting a custom made flue cover will really increase the cost of this unit.
Perfect for high ceilings
Delonghi Canopy Rangehood DEBETA90.
We settled on this range-hood because it had the longest flue (and extension piece), as our ceiling in the kitchen is quite high. It was either that, or have a new flue manufactured by a sheet metal factory, which would have cost as much as the range-hood. As we had just had a brand new kitchen installed, we didn't want any additional expense.
We are extremely happy with the range-hood. It looks great sitting above our stainless steel 900mm freestanding duel-fuel oven. I thought it might look bulk...y but it doesn't. The fan is also quiet. We mainly use it on one, but occasionally on two. The light is bright enough to see what I am cooking. The installer told us that it was quiet compared to a lot of range-hoods he has installed recently.
RIP - 8 YEAR OLD RANGEHOOD
Had to replace the PCB for $200 in 2015, plus call out $88. 2 weeks ago, motor stopped working. Another $88 call out diagnosed the death of the motor. We need a new rangehood. It was good whilst it lasted, but was I unlucky or does it only has a very limited lifespan? My Mother in law has exactly the same model and hers is over 10 years old.
Parts need 4-12 weeks waiting time...
We had this rangehood for 8 years. It worked nicely, only need to change the lamp. It stop working one day. Similar problem as Helen from sydney. The pcb and switch board are broken. It cost me $165 to check the problem (also the Delonghi dishwasher is broken, but reason unkown). The part cost $134 and estimate labour fee is $110.
But when I like it to fix, they told me it need to be wait for 4-12 weeks. ( so far two weeks ) because delonghi doesn't has parts.
I can't wait four months.... Might just buy a new one instead. Hope it can last 10 year!
Questions & Answers
Looks like all of us that bought that unit have same issues. Not a good design or a good service from apparently great company. Keep me informed if any of you resolve this problem with the blue lights. Thanks
I have a range hood debeta 90 which doesn't work now it has a blue light lit up fan button 3 is lit up. Will not do any thing? It has just been instolled last year . even tho its out of warranty , it was sitting in the box for few years. ( was working when we tested it and all was o.k. it has newer been used. I have just seen the blue light on few days ago. ( the instruction book says something about 15 min timer ) i have no idea what that is and how to use it. What do i do. Regards Miro
Same issue here. I'll report back once I work out what the problem is. I'm guessing it's most likely the control module that hosts the buttons. Must be some kind of common short circuit or corrosion issue. I'll likely crack it open and inspect my unit this week.
Mine has a blue light on the 3 speed button
