    • The infinitely adjustable rotary speed control on this hood lets you choose your optimal setting
    • Dual 40-watt lamps increase light distribution; night-light feature adds safety. Lamps not included
    • Large filter design captures more steam and odors than typical hoods. Aluminum mesh filters are dishwasher-safe to give you the confidence your kitchen will always smell fresh
    • Convertible versatility. Installs as 3-1/4" x 10" (vertical or horizontal), 7" round (vertical) or non-ducted. Non-duct filter (BPQTF) is required for use in a non-duct installation (sold separately)
    • Includes 3-1/4" x 10" and 7" round adapter (7" damper BP87 optional and sold separately)

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Unclear directions for installation. This range hood was not easy to install. The holes in the hood did not line up with any wood surfaces in which to screw them. My husband and I had to modify the cabinet in order to install the range hood. Also the description said 2 light settings and a night light. There is no night light setting in addition to the high and low settings. That is false advertising in my opinion. Range hood looks nice. I still don't know how well it works. We just finished installing it.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Once installed it works great. This under cabinet range hood would possibly be installed easier if I didn't have to deal with an existing exhaust vent. It was literally a pain in the a__.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great range hood My range hood installed very easy and it looks great. The fan can really clear out any smoke or odors. I couldn't be more pleased.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is an excellent hood... We recently moved into a different house. The existing range hood was old, noisy and barely moved any air. After doing a LOT of research, I decided on the Broan QT230BL range hood. Installation was fairly easy, as all the mounting holes matched the previous hood, but the existing vertical duct was slightly off center. No biggie, I was able to move the damper assembly 1/4" to the right, and then the hood fit perfectly. The variable-speed fan is very quiet even at full speed, and the two-level lighting is nice. The fan draws very evenly from all corners of the cook-top, with no "spill-out" into the room. I'm very happy with the looks, performance, and value of this hood, and would definitely recommend it to anyone.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stylish stainless steel, variable speed fan. This range hood works effectively with useful multi-setting variable speed. Also has over head light with two settings that is very useful; the brighter setting helps with cooking and the lower setting is useful for a night light, or if you need subdued lighting all around to enjoy the meal you have just prepared.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from terrible workmanship the vent works ok, but the workmanship is terrible. spot welds are very visible and there are gaps in the seams that should be tight. it was very disappointing to open the box and find a third rate vent. we had hoped that we could show off our new range and hood, but we don't want guests to see this mess.

    Fan or No Fan

    In reviewing the specs on Home Depot's web site, it states this model does not come with a fan. However, in reviewing the information on your site, it appears that it does. So...does the Broan QT20000, in black, come with a fan?
    Asked by: Anonymous
    Yes, it has a fan.

    My light cover yellowed, cracked, and then fell apart.

    Replacement part?
    Asked by: Anonymous
    In the future, use the new type of fluorescent light bulbs. They produce very little heat and won't discolor the light cover. 40 Watt rating is perfect producing only about 9 watts.

    I purchased a BPQTF filter for a ductfree hood aand it doesnt fit the filter opening on he hood, does this mount seperately?

    Asked by: Anonymous
    Thank you for your question on the model BPQTF non-ducted charcoal filter for the QT20000 series range hood. If you have a QT20000 series range hood, the filter should fit. Please double check the model number of your hood and contact the Technical Service Department at 800-637-1453 if you need further assistance.

    What is the difference between models qt230bc and qt230aa?

    Asked by: Anonymous
    Thank you for your question on the QT230AA range hood. The QT230AA is the color almond. The QT230BC is biscuit/bisque. Biscuit is more of an off white or bone color. Almond is a little darker.
