We moved into our flat half a year ago. Today, for the first time since then, the Sentinel Kinetic MVHR showed “check filter” on its display. So I took out the filter - and it was full of thick, black, glistening grease - see photo attached.
No, I did not take this photo with a flash, the fat actually glistens like that.
Now, on page 73 of our Residents Handbook, one reads the following about filter cleaning:
“Cleaning gently by tapping or carefully using a vacuum cleaner if necessary.”
Obviously, this does not apply in our case: I touched the surface only once, and I had all the goo on my fingers. Yuk!
Can anybody advise us on this? Are we the only ones with such greasy filters? (Yes, we actually do “real” cooking.) Does @TriathlonHomes provide replacements? Or how does this work?
