    • 100 CFM at normal speed and 350 CFM at high speed provides the smoke and odor clearing power you need at the press of a 3-speed soft-touch control, with green LED indicators
    • Four 50W Halogen MR16/GU10 lamps provide brilliant lighting over and around the cooktop with 3-levels of brightness, including theater-style transition (bulbs included), so you can see how things are cooking and read the cookbook

    • 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

  • QP242BC is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 84.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great features at a good price point. I researched the heck out of range hoods before selecting this one from Broan. It was a mid-range model for a modest kitchen upgrade we were doing but it had top of the line features. Three speed quiet exhaust, four bulb illumination with theatrical fade and a sleek profile. Perfect for our needs. There are more deluxe models available but if you research, this model is available a some sharply reduced prices.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Would never recommend this product for a non-duct installation. Had this hood installed in a non-duct installation. The steam from pots on the stove are not drawn into the hood. I put a small piece of napkin against the intake and it fell off. It appears the vents on top are to small and static pressure builds ups preventing the fan from drawing.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product This beat the builder grade vent hood that it replaced.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Looks great, works great! The is a great addition to our kitchen facelift-changed to all stainless steel appliances so we needed to replace an older broan that was white but still worked great!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stylish & quiet Love having 3 different light & fan levels, nice and bright. Looks great with my new remodeled kitchen. I would recommend this range hood to anyone looking for an exceptional product.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Average for price For the price, this model is a moderate option. It is the 2nd unit Ive had, as the first one broke in the first 2 months. The replacement is not that strong and rattles a lot. I recommend buying a higher priced model, as the low cost model is not very high quality.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good value, is effective and quiet We chose the QP230SS because of its positive reviews. I was tired of having to air my clothes out because the smell from the previous night's dinner (especially when we cooked fish or anything fried) would permeate my closet. Despite our kitchen's small size, I'm glad we made the decision to exchange our over-the-range microwave with this range hood. It really is quiet, and although we still need to close the kitchen doors when frying, it is, for the most part, very effective. We have a tile backsplash, and chose to install Broan's stainless steel backsplash to cover the area between the oven and the bottom of the range hood. Gorgeous? No. Acceptable? Yes.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Cannot change bulbs after 3.5 years - epic waste of money Loved look and rating of how effective it was to move indoor cooking smoke and steam is the reason for purchase. Epic failure! The buttons are not easy to operate but we are over it after not being able to change bulbs. The weird halogen bulb it uses does not screw in after only 2 anymore so as they die out. I've had issues along and now I can't even get the bulb to go in or break off at the base. Now I have a 350.00 half lit piece of junk to look at daily. We are considering changing the fixtures to a screw in style so this is not an total loss .

    How do I turn the lights off of the QP236Ss?

    I have owned this unit installed for over 3 years hooked up to spec by certified electrician with original lamps. I can not get the light switch to turn the lights off. I checked the fuse and it is not blown or looks "burned" in any way. I have been satisfied otherwise.

    I routed this issue to the technical support division at Broan. I explained the circumstances and they sent out a new main circuit board and switch control board. I replaced both in about 45 min. This resolved the issue. Thank you for your customer service and assistance. Grahamprofound

    How do I reset thr filter indicator light after cleaning the filters

    My filter light has come on and I don't know how to reset it.
    Asked by: Anonymous
    The fan light ring will flash when it is time to clean or replace the filter, based on your individual use pattern. For every 30 hours of operation, the light will flash to remind you to clean or check your filters. To reset the filter cleaning reminder light, press and hold the button for three seconds. This will stop the blinking and reset the timer. If you have further questions, please contact our Technical Support directly at 800-637-1453.
