Summary: Excellent unit -easy conversion to direct exhaust with adaptor and purchased damper. Unit is quiet ,well lit (with purchased A15 lamps) and attractive . The rating on the box was GOOD but I found the unit finish, construction and appearance as above average . Would recommend as best buy ..
Summary: I ordered this because it does not have halogen lights and also the profile is small enough that I shouldn't be hitting my head on it constantly when cooking. I love it because the fans are quiet and it looks quite stylist--at least for me since my kitchen is in transition. The stainless steel matches my dishwasher while the black control panel ties in with my stove and refrigerator.
Summary: I love the range hood - but have had constant problem with the light. One side goes out whenever it feels like it. I called Broan and their suggested help[ did not work. Would be careful on this one.
Summary: Good price on this hood. I like the variable speed fan. I don't find it too noisy. The light has two settings which is good. The only problem we had with it is on each side in the front there are welds. We carefully took this out of the box and the welds were broken. Not a huge deal, but could look a little better. I tried to email seller, tried all the ways thru amazon to find a resolution to this - but was NEVER able to reach anyone.
Summary: I installed this unit and put in the rated bulbs for the lights. After being on for 24 hrs (use as a night light). A dead fish smell started to fill the house. I traced it to the range hood. I have worked in metal stamping plants and recognized the order as machining lube used in forming metal. It is impregnated in the stainless and will not clean up! Not pleased! Poor quality!
Summary: The fan is quiet, I don't care what other reviewer say. Easy to install. A good looking vent. The sheet metal covering the top exhaust opening is a little hard to get off. The front connector for this sheet metal is right over the fan wires so be careful when trying to get it loose or you may slice those wires.
Summary: This is for a rental unit, and I haven't really done any cooking there, but the light and fan seem to work fine, and it looks to be very well constructed. Sitting at the table and looking up into it, it's really fairly attractive. As I have been in the unit for which it was bought for only a couple of days, it isn't possible to give a complete review, but I'm very satisfied so far.
