    Rated 4 out of 5 by Good price for good hood, but you will need tin snips! Hood looks nice and functions well. There were some manufacturing defects that made installation difficult. No where on the Broan web site does it say a cord is not included with the unit. I assumed it did and was quite frustrated to have to order this and wait another week for the hood to have power. All new construction has an outlet in the cabinet over the range, not a wired connection. No where do the specs mention the cord gauge or amps so to be safe you have to order this from Broan. The vertical and power cord knockouts were very hard to remove. I recommend using a Dremmel tool to to cut the connection points to avoid damaging the hood. The internal black fan housing did not align with the hood exterior shell and I had to use tin snips (metal cutting scissors) to make the duct connector fit inside the knockout. Be sure to test the damper flap swing radius after you attach the 3.25 x 10 vent stack. The flap opens 90 degrees, but not if it is blocked by the interior sides of the stack. I had to cut the edges off of the flap for full swing and maximum CFM air flow. I bet many of these hoods have been installed without checking this. Instructions should include a WARNING about this. Overall, for the price this is a good deal and pulls a lot of CFM for a guy like me who cooks a lot with my stove. It pulls so many CFM it ventilates my kitchen, dining room and large living room. Good deal, but be prepared for a fussy installation. January 17, 2015
    Rated 5 out of 5 by Great value for a pro-style hood. Can't comment on the installation hassles. My contractor put mine in. I do agree with the bulb installation issues. Difficult but not impossible. I used tape to make a small "handle" on the bulb face. I then inserted the bulb into the socket and used the tape to turn the bulb and then removed the tape. But the vent hood is very attractive and performs well. The fan is a bit loud but not overly loud. All in all, a great value. I am ordering another one to replace my model 88000. April 13, 2014
    Rated 2 out of 5 by This hood has a nice "upgraded" pro look and is great for a kitchen remodel but beware of lurking installation issues. The hood looked great after installation, but getting it there was another story. First, the screw holes provided in the top of the unit are way too large. Then the screws that came with it were too short due to an offset on the bottom of our cabinet. Ultimately we had to drill our own holes thru the vent hood body & provide our own screws in order to successfully attach it to the bottom of the cabinet. Once it was installed, we worked off and on for two days trying to get the light bulbs installed. Problem is they're the same diameter as the hole they go thru so once in position, there is no way to grasp the light bulb and turn it into position. We finally gave up and called Broan. They sent a suction cup tool to install the bulbs. That item should have been included to begin with, along with the light bulbs which took two trips to the store to get the correct bulb. There are two different bulbs that look similar to the picture in the manual & their packages do not provide the detailed bulb number as shown in the manual. It would have been so much easier if they had just provided them. All in all, it's probably a good choice for a hood since it has an upgraded "pro" look & fits the standard space; however, the installation is not as easy as it should have been. Be sure you're prepared to deal with the issues. July 15, 2013

    Answer: 
    Thank you for your question on the model RP130SS range hood. For the best capture of cooking impurities, the range hood should be mounted so that the bottom of the hood is 18”-24” above the cooking surface.

    I have a cabinet opening of exactly 30", but the specification sheet for the hood says the width is 30.36". What is the true width of this hood?

    Answer: 
    Thank you for your question on the model RP130SS range hood. The “30.36” on the spec sheet shows that the hood comes in 30” or 36”. Typically a hood will measure between 1/8” and ¼” less than the specified width (so the RP130SS should measure between 29-3/4” to 29-7/8”).

    Can this be installed without a cabinet? The wall mounting kit (model 35) can be used? From the description on model 35 wall mounting kit, it says the following, which seems possible. I would like to confirm with you.

    "You can still enjoy a ventilated kitchen using these brackets when you can't hang a range hood
    from overhead cabinets Designed for use with the following series:
    37000, 40000, 41000, 42000, 43000, 46000, 52000, 88000, 89000, AP1 (ducted only), F40000,
    QS1, QS2 (36" and 42" only), QS3 (36" and 42" only), QT20000 and RP1."
