Hi, Ive been considering one of these for my home. We do not do a lot of cooking but as we have an open plan kitchen family room I want to ensure cooking smells are eliminated and with a system that isn't noisy. I do not do any asian style cooking but we do cook a lot of curries and casseroles, so we simmer onions etc. Would the 900 (ST) be the model for us? Any idea of installations costs - we have single level, tile roof house.
I also have an open plan kitchen and a Asian wife and as you can imagine in all probility we do very simular wok cooking to ypourselves ( A fair amount of spices and like yourselves). We also do not want the smells drifting throughout the house.
With over 30 years experiance in this industry I have found the Schweigen rangehood brand by far to be the best rangehood on the market. Installed correctly they are silent and unlike many other rangehoods they do what they claim they will do.
I have yet to have any client complain that the (ST) motor did not cope with their cooking however, just to cover all basis my wife and I installed the R1600 but I feel this was a bit of an overkill.
I believe the ST will do the job but please do not hesitate to give me a call should you have any other questions.
Hi. Which motor option is best for general home cooking? Would the Single External motor be sufficient, or would you need the Standard External? Thanks.
Sorry for the slow responce.
The S1 motor will often struggle to cope with much of the cooking we normally do at home.
The S2 is an older design and should no longer should be considered.
The ST will cope best for most of the cooking and is usually the best alternative.
The Sp is needed when you do a lot of Asian style cooking.
Remember you will need to put the SP motor 6 metres away from the rangehood whereas the ST can be considerably closer without generating noise.
Kind Regards Tom
I'm about to purchase a 90cm gas cooktop and thinking of purchasing the 90cm Schweigen UM1170-9SP undermount rangehood to be installed in a new kitchen. I'm Vietnamese and I love to cook all sorts of food including Asian and Indian curries. I don't want the pungent smell to linger on my walls over time. Will the 1600m3 motor be overkill for my requirement or will a less powerful motor, say the 1100m3, be adequate? Thanks Dao
Hi Dao. Thanks for your email. I can relate to your situation as my wife is Vietnamese/Chinese. As the undermount has to draw steam and odors from the front burners you need to go for the 1600 unit. Schweigen does what it claims it will do and wiull out perform internal motored rangehood comfortably as most internal motored rangehoods fail miserably when it comes to pushing the grease and oil up and out to the atmosphere. Thse style of rangehood leave a musky smell in the kitchen area. Kind Regards Tom Mullan
Hi, Would the schweigen 90cm RWU-UM1170-9SP be ok for a 700 induction cooktop. I enquired about this some time ago and it was ok. I did just notice another model that was more high powered the SP2 I didn't notice this last time I looked. Would that model be overkill? I am looking to purchase between now and next wednesday. Thanks Tracey
The RUM1170-9Sp is the most suitable rangehood for this induction cooktop. The SP2 would be overkill.
My wife is Chinese and we use this unit at home and it copes with the most intense cooking we do.

Hi, can you tell me the difference between the Schweigen 90cm Silent Undermount Rangehood-UM1170-9 and Schweigen 90cm Silent Baffle Undermount Rangehood-UM-9. I can see that they have a different looking filter but I'm not sure what the benefits of either system are. Are there any other differences? Thank you.
Hi Anita; Great Question. Mesh filters consist of layers of fine metal mesh stacked on top of each other in a way that enables the air and grease to flow through gradually and separated by the mesh however, grease will still build-ups within the filter which requires regular cleaning. Good quality mesh filters are always the best choice for trapping grease and oils. Baffles are designed to force grease-saturated air to quickly change direction whilst the grease droplets cannot change direction as rapidly as the air carrying them, they end up condensing into the metal blades and drain tray. Baffles are not great ﬁlters, nor are they effective at collecting grease. Bafﬂes also significantly reduce airﬂow and often create more noise than mesh. These Baffles where originally designed to reduce the chance of fire in commercial shops like fish and chip shops. If I can be of any assistance just give me a call on 0424663345. Regards Tom
We are currently building a new kitchen on the ground floor of a terrace. We therefore can't put the motor in the roof and would prefer not to have the motor on the outside wall as it would be very close to our neighbours and, I suspect, very noisy for them. We could easily put the motor under the kitchen floor. Would that affect the efficient operation of the exhaust? I am thinking of buying the 90cm undermount 1600m3.
The Schweigen German motor system will perform extremely well if placed under the floor area.
They are designed to be placed upside down under the external eaves of one's home.
This is the same position "upside down" it can be placed under the floor.
I have had a new exhaust fan installed. How the hell do I silence it. It’s like a locomotive running through the kitchen. Completely unusable absolutely disappointed!,
Sorry to hear about your noise issue, forgive for being blunt however, I feel it is the best way to sort out this issue.
I have arranged the installation of over 1000 of these units and never had a problem with noise.
Installed according to the manual these units are silent.
Ever time a client has had noise issues it is due to incorrect installation, Every time.
I am happy to help so give me a call and please explain to me the following.
1.The motor size you have sellected with this unit.
2. How far away from the rangehood it has been installed.
I will assist you in finding the solution.
I am thinking of getting this model with 1600m3/hr. The motor is placed outside the roof so I need to buy anything extra for the installation or not. Is it easy to install or not? Do I need a plumber or an electrician to install it.
Hi Jane thankyou for your question below.
I am thinking of getting this model with 1600m3/hr. The motor is placed outside the roof so I need to buy anything extra for the installation or not.
Schweigen supply everything you need for the installation excepting the Decktite/roof flashing which the installer will provide.
Is it easy to install or not?
Schweigen in one of the easiest rangehoods to install.
Do I need a plumber or an electrician to install it?
If you have a tin or colour bond roof you will always require a fully licenced plumber.
With a tile roof I would also recommend that you use a plumber, just to be sure and in case of leakage.
On the Schweigen website you will find a list of recomended installers most area throughout Australia.
I have installed a Schweigen in my own home and it is undoubtably the best thing I have done.
Hi, I have a two storey house. I want to replaced my 90cm rangehood which is very noisy. What are my options? thanks
The best installation solution in a double story house is to duct the Schweigen rangehood directly out through the nearest external wall.
This can be directly out through the rear or sideways to the left or right of the rangehood through the kitchens bulkhead or overhead cabinetary.
I have sold hundreds of these units and to be fair to Schweigen they are one of the few appliances on the market that actually do what they claim.
They are the quietest rangehood on the market and very effective, I use this brand in my home and we do a lot of high flame and stirfry cooking at home .( My wife is Chinese).
If you need any assistance don't hesitate to give me a call on 133 449 131
