  • The EVOLUTION Series of QP Range Hoods has a contemporary style and sleek appearance that will complement any kitchen design.  Easy to clean, brilliant lighting and quiet operation result in the perfect marriage of functionality.

    • Ultra quiet at less than 0.3 sones at Normal speed and only 5.0 sones at High speed, allows you to clear out cooking smoke and unwanted smells without disturbing the peace in your kitchen
    • 150 CFM at Normal speed and 470 CFM at High speed provides the smoke and odor clearing power you need, when you need it. A 4-speed, soft-touch control with green LED indicators includes a 630 CFM Boost mode which is ideal for high heat cooking styles
    • An integrated LED clock-timer lets you time certain dishes, delay-off allows the hood to operate an extra 10 minutes after cooking, and a 2-level ambient light sensor turns on when it  senses low room light -- all to provide the master chef with convenience and confidence in the kitchen
    • Four 50W Halogen MR16/GU10 lamps  provide brilliant lighting over and around the cooktop with 4-levels of brightness, including theater-style transition (bulbs  included), so you can see how things are cooking and clearly read the cookbook
    • Aluminum micro-mesh filters are dishwasher-safe to give you the confidence your kitchen will always smell fresh
    • Enclosed non-stick bottom pan ensures quick clean-up to make your work fast and easy
    • Advanced Heat Sentry™ detects excessive heat and turns blower to high, prolonging product life and ensuring your confidence in range hood performance
    • Choice of 3-1/4" rectangular or 7" round ducting ensures reliable discharge without repositioning the blower. The Evolution 4 can be installed as ducted only
    • Optional remote control (BCR1 sold separately) has a magnetic base which allows you to position it wherever it is most convenient. Enables operation of blower speed, lighting and delay-off features from across the room, so range hood operation is always at your fingertips
    • Compatible with optional Broan Make-up Air Dampers (MD6T or MD8T, sold separately) to fit 6" or 8" ducting and help to balance the air pressure when the range hood is in use, keeping your environment comfortable

    Rated 1 out of 5 by On the highest setting, this hood cannot pull the steam from a medium size pot of boiling water. I have a gas range that is 30" wide and I purchased the 36" wide range hood with 630 cfm. Not worth the money - works as well as the vent in my apartment. June 13, 2016
    Rated 5 out of 5 by very happy with this fan! it was ok except that the screen covers and instructions weren't in the box i received. contacted the retailer & they said they weren't supposed to be included. i contacted broan & they sent me the covers i needed & i downloaded the instruction manual. very pleased with customer service. i replaced an undercabinet microwave with a useless fan with this when i was updating my kitchen. i was surprised the previous owner covered up the vent that goes to the outside. it was also a tight squeeze between my cabinets but it's in and works beautifully! i love it! i usually only need the low fan setting and it's so quiet, i forget it's on sometimes. took me a while to figure out how to adjust the other settings, like the clock & timer but they're so handy.a little more expensive than i thought it would be but it's ok April 29, 2016
    Rated 5 out of 5 by Great product! This vent was easy to install, it does the job. The lighting is a plus and the vent suction is what I had hoped for. I've had no problems since installation about four months ago. I strongly recommend this stove vent. April 26, 2016
    Rated 5 out of 5 by This is a great update from my old one! WOW! The lighting is awesome! The fan is powerful! The electrician that installed it hadn't installed the 2016 model as of yet, and he had a little problem..but it is perfect! April 26, 2016
    Rated 1 out of 5 by Product Specifications Not Accurate Dimensional data on website is not accurate or complete. Relied on this to purchase and because of this would not recommend this hood. March 28, 2016
    Rated 5 out of 5 by Love it We bought for a full remodel kitchen. Love it. It looks great in the new kitchen. The lights actually have four levels to use and turn on with just a quick touch of the buttons. There are three levels for the air flow. Of course the highest level you can hear but is still on the quiet side. Nothing bad to say. Great Product. October 16, 2015
    Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Product for the money!!! Great product, wish it would take LED dimable lighting. July 16, 2015
    Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent appearance and quiet operation The hood has an excellent appearance, complimenting the other kitchen appliances. It is easy to operate, and is quiet and efficient. July 16, 2015

    Answer: 
    Thank you for your question on the model QP442SS range hood. We only recommend that you use the type of bulb listed in the installation instructions for your range hood. Substituting a Light Emitting Diode (LED) for a Halogen bulb can be done and does not void the warranty, but it may produce less then satisfying results. Due to the higher heat generated by cooking, the lifespan of the bulb could be greatly shortened. Improper controls for the LED bulbs can also cause flickering in low light settings or even no light at all. Sometimes the LED replacement may not go off, staying on at a very low level even when the switch is off.

    Fan is not turning on - please help!

     on QP430SS
    Dear Broan,

    We have really loved our Broan QP430SS 630 CFM since installing it and have had zero problems (including reading and following the instructions to turn off the night light). However, just this week, the fan stopped running. The lights are still working. When we press on any of the fan settings, you hear an electronic “click” and the green indicator lights work, but the fan does not come on. We tried every button and every combination of settings possible. We even turned off the electricity to the unit (via the circuit breakers in our basement) waited a minute and turned everything back on – multiple times. We even followed the instructions on checking the two fuses (“Main Fuse” and “Light Fuse”) on the Range Hood Control Board. Both fuses are not blown and fine. I am an engineer so problem solving is not new to me, but we are at wits end now. It seems like either electricity is not getting to the electric motor or the motor has stopped working, but it's a simple electric motor that is highly reliable with less than two years of service. Please help!

    How to connect 7" duct to the round duct plate

    Customer avatar
    by
    New Kitschen owner
     on QP430SS
    I am running my duct through the cabinet but I cannot figure out how to properly connect a 7" duct to the 7" duct plate. The instruction manual does not provide any information on how to properly connect a duct to the duct plate.
    The rim of the duct plate is lower than the bottom of the cabinet. Meaning the duct plate does not protrude through the cabinet floor. Pushing a solid 7" duct on it does not provide a sealed and tight connection.

    Answer: 
    Thank you for your question on the model QP430SS range hood. We recommend that you cut an 8" diameter hole through the cabinet so you have access to the duct plate. You will then attach the duct work to the unit and seal with foil tape around the duct connection to the plate. If you have further questions please contact our Technical Support department directly at 800-637-1453.

    QP430SS Fan switch intermittent.

    Pressing fan switch (any speed) results in fan starting for an instant then stops. Eventually, after many attempts, the fan operates and can be speed controlled by the switches. The unit is less than 3 yrs old. Is there a reset button for the controller card?
