CDA CPX9 COOKER HOOD - how to remove chimney/disconnect power
I think my cooker hood is a CDA CPX9 (but it might be a CPX10 or CPX11).
Anyway the hood, or its power supply, has developed a short-circuit as my RCD trips.
When I reset my RCD a blue flash comes from the hood and the RCD trips again. This leaves me without power on all circuits which are linked to thr RCD. So I need to disconnect the cooker hood from the power supply.
I think it must be necessary to remove the chimney in order to disconnect the power. How to I get the chimney off without breaking it ?

In case you are still looking for an answer. The same happened to me.
I found a 3-amp fuse which I changed, and now it's ok.
I removed the chimney casing and located the electrical connection into
the wall. You'll find a fuse unit within the switch which swings out.
Depends where you live, an EU law came in force a few years back stating that you had to leave a 50mm gap either side of a chimney hood for heat reasons, coming from the hob to the underside of the wall cabinets. But i am pretty sure that this is for newly fitted kitchens only as you would find it hard to purchase a 500mm hood.
Hope this helps.
Your problem is: You live in a flat with no chimney and you would like to install a cooker hood. how do you do this please?
Is there living space above? If so you can't go straight up. If your range is on an outside wall, it can be piped out the back. If only attic or roof above, no problem. Just pipe it straight up useing B-vent pipe or equivlent. If you can't do any of this just get a hood that vents filtered air back into the room.

hood should be connected to a fused spur outlet which you havent found. try removing the chimney and you may find it there. chimney only held by 2 screws at top usually.the fuse in the outlet sometimes goes when bulbs blow
I had the same experiences with my lights. I placed a 50v bulb and it blew the fuses. The fusees located on the right side of the bottom duct cover. use 5a 125 v fuse GE part # wb27x10542 but you can find a cheaper fuse at Radio Shack. Good luck
