The manual i have says that the charcoal filters inside need changing about every 6 months. take out the grease filters then you should be able to turn it and take them out. you may not have these if the extractor vents to the outside. the grease filters can be cleaned with a neutral detergent and then put back in. Make sure the electric is off before you do any of this. Hope this makes sense and helps!

No! The material is impregnated with minute carbon granules which will have absorbed all the grease and moisture coming from the cooker, like little pieces of coke (smokeless fuel!!). If the filter is a cartridge type, a search on Google for the model may help. Search under "cooker extractor spares". If it's a cloth type, there are numerous cheap shop choices for universal filter material that you just trim to fit.
Its not the ceiling height that matters its the height above the cooker or hob thats important. Above a gas burner the bottom of the hood should be at least 750mm, above electric burner 650mm . This measurement should be taken from the highest point of the cooker top.
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.
