Rated 3 out of 5 by Teresa10 broken light swtich
My biggest complaint is the light switch lasted just over a year. Replacing it will cost me $19.82 plus extra for shipping. The switch is made with cheap plastic and has an awful design of breaking in another year which can become costly over the years!
I use the switches on a daily basis, they should be made more sturdy to last longer!!

Rated 3 out of 5 by LindaC Nice hood, but bulbs last longer than the switches
This is a nice, functional hood, except that is has flimsy plastic switches which fail after a few years. We use both the lights and fans on a daily basis. After three years, the halogen bulbs are still going strong, but the switches are failing and pretty soon they will be unusable. It looks like this is a known issue and many others have complained about the poor quality switches.

Rated 5 out of 5 by GlennaG Great product
We purchased the hood to replace an old one. It is a very good product and we will be putting another one in at our new construction. Great at drawing smoke and odor. The lights are very good too. Very pleased with this product. Thanks.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Flipper Powerful enough to handle all the cooking we do and quiet enough not to be a nusance.
We cook almost every evening and at least 2 meals on Saturday and Sunday. The 2 speeds are more than adequate to remove heat and odors. The 2 level light allow us to use the lower level and not add the heat of the high level brightness. Cleaning the filters is a breeze. We put them in the dishwasher and forget about them till the cycle is finished. They always come out like new. We have not had any problems. Great product.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Neil Good range hood
The big reason I bought it is that the fan is quiet and the lighting is good.
The only thing I didn't like was the hood lamps were hard to change.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Leni This is a defective product-the switch repeatedly breaks!
As many others have commented, I too have have problems with the switch. It is a cheap thin plastic that easily breaks. I am on my third one in two years. It is hard to replace and costs $20. Broan should fix this problem with a permanent situation. Light bulbs are also an issue. Hard to install, very diificult to replace. Avoid this product!!

Rated 3 out of 5 by Tbar73 one more chance
Product works well, until the cheap plastic switch breaks. I have replaced the poor quality switches two times, and when this one breaks, it will be with another brand to replace the complete hood. I am very disappointed in this because Broan has always meant quality. Would recommend this product if the switches were of better construction, quality.
