    • 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" x 10” rectangular or 7" round ducting ensures reliable discharge without repositioning the blower. Optional non-ducted installation requires CleanSense™ charcoal filters (BPPF sold separately), providing you the right choice of installation for your kitchen
    • Compatible with optional Broan Make-up Air Dampers (MD6TU or MD8TU, 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 4 out of 5 by Goes great with our new stove Great product was easy to install , I did it myself . Very quite even on high, works great as a night light. July 18, 2015
    Rated 4 out of 5 by It performs well! The range hood has performed as advertised, and it has been a great addition to our kitchen. We would have liked one that was quieter and uses less energy, but it is OK and the price was right. We like the bright light and the good airflow, and the choice of levels of light or airflow. It's also easy to clean as needed. We cannot comment on ease of installation, since we hired a professional installer, but he had no trouble installing it, even in a location where we did not previously have a range hood. July 16, 2015
    Rated 3 out of 5 by auto-off fail It does not jump instantly from level 3 to 1 (strongest to weakest). You have to wait a few minutes for it to do that and another few minutes for it to shut-off July 16, 2015
    Rated 2 out of 5 by It does eliminate smoke or smell well. Three of the four light bulbs burnt out in a month and I hardly used them. The screens dont clean well. Not happy at all. Does not work well. The lights burnt out in a month and I did not even use them much. The screens do not clean well. The worst range hood ever!!!! Never would have bought it had I known. May 29, 2015
    Rated 5 out of 5 by This product has great features I am enjoying the range hood because it has many positive features. It's very quiet and provides good lighting. The lowest button on venting and lighting is sufficient on most days. Its appearance is great. April 29, 2015
    Rated 4 out of 5 by Very nice I replaced a 30 year old Broan hood with this one and it immediately changed the looks of the entire cooktop area. Its sleek design, fully screened underside, and halogen lights are all easy on the eyes. The fan is very quiet and powerful, and the filters are easily removed for cleaning. It's also worthy to add that I didn't need to modify anything for the installation since it fit the existing opening and vent system of the previous unit. April 5, 2015
    Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Product! Easy to put in, ducted 7" round top. Only thing I could see might be helpful for energy use would be to have LED dimable lighting instead of halogen. All around, the fan is very very quiet. CFM in the 3 steps is great. And your dimable lighting for the halogen is superb. The stainless steel is beautiful in our kitchen. March 25, 2015
    Rated 4 out of 5 by Very satisfied with the operation since we installed it. The fact of the lighting and fan speeds makes it very convenient. February 7, 2015
