    Rated 2 out of 5 by Product has good fearures Product only removes smoke from one side and not so efficiently. Home smoke detectors are always going off when ever I fry almost anything on high heat. September 10, 2014
    Rated 5 out of 5 by Great lighting Love this range hood. It is quiet, efficient and provides great lighting over my cooktop. September 9, 2014
    Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent product! Attractive! Performs well. Great features and works well. Highly recommend! Looks good. Especially like lighting and quiet use. September 8, 2014
    Rated 5 out of 5 by I love the lights on this product This product was purchased for a rental unit. The installer realized upon installation consistent vibration no matter what he did upon install. The unit vibrates and makes a loud noise. Customer service was more than helpful. Sent out a part immediately and put me I contact with a local installer who couldn't be nicer. September 8, 2014
    Rated 4 out of 5 by This product is a good value! We installed this Undercabinet Range Hood three months ago. We did have a sound and vibration issue right out the box, but Broan tech support handled it through a local technician. After a part replacement and some minor adjustment it has preformed superbly, but that is expected from Broan products. I can recommend this product. September 5, 2014
    Rated 4 out of 5 by Everything is fine about this product except Everything about this product is fine except for one very important problem. It is very difficult to replace the hood lights. Impossible for me to do. I had to call a service professional to change the bulb in my hood. I like the fact that the fan turns on automatically when needed but then it won't turn off until the cycle ends. The fan is very loud. Other than that, it is a very handsome looking addition to my kitchen. It works very well, looks great, and fits the space. September 5, 2014
    Rated 5 out of 5 by This product has changed my life in the kitchen I love this range hood! It is simple to use, effective, and easy to clean. The range hood completely removes smoke, steam and odors from my kitchen. I love bing able to put the filters in the dishwasher. However, my neighbors are begging for mercy. I am a home cook and canner and now my neighborhood fills up with the aromas of my cooking-prompting some husbands to make comments about the frozen dinners they are having for supper. Thank you for a superiior product that actually does what it is advertized to do. -K- September 5, 2014
    Rated 3 out of 5 by Not a good non-vented option Do not buy this with the idea oF using the non-vented option. Noise level even at low speed is unbearable when installed that way. At high setting it sounds like an airplane is flying in my house. Value for price is poor. My old $50 nutone did just as good a job as this one and costs much less. A positive...the lighting is excellent. September 5, 2014

    My current BEST K210A hood utilizes an internal blower exhausting horizontally through an opening at the back of the hood. Is the opening position and dimensions at the back of the QP230SS the sames as those of the K210A? I prefer not to have to re-cut the hole in the wall.

    Answer: 
    Thank you for your question on the model K210A and QP230SS range hoods. The horizontal exhaust from the QP230SS should line up with the current exhaust from the K210A.

    Thank you for your question on the model QP242SS range hood. The only cord kit we have tested with the QP242SS range hood is the HCK44. Since we have not tested the GE cord kit, we cannot comment on it. Please contact the Technical Service Department at 800-637-1453 for further assistance.

    Can the QP242SS be converted to plug in to an outlet? Will the warranty be void?

    My existing hood plugs into an outlet in the cabinet area above. As long as making it a plug-in unit is in keeping with electrical code, I want to use the existing outlet.

    Answer: 
    Thank you for your question on the model QP242SS range hood. The HCK44 range hood cord kit is UL classified for use with the QP242SS range hood. You would need to check your local electrical codes to see if there are any restrictions for this in your area.
