This smart hood is equipped with a delay-off feature and a filter change indicator to improve ventilation effectiveness. Soft-touch controls and a non-stick, DuPont Teflon® coating on the bottom cover make it smooth and easy to clean. This hood’s quiet nature is due to its high-performance centrifugal blower. You’ll be able to carry on a conversation while cooking and you won’t miss out on the juicy details.

    • Powder-coated finish in black is durable, easy to clean and will be a perfect match to your black appliances
    • Monochromatic black controls blend with hood for a clean, neat appearance

    How do I fit QS3 model with 7" duct?

     on QS330SS
    The installation brochure didn't seem to include how to fit a 7" duct. For example, for other models, there is a 7" duct plate I can use to fit.

    Can you clarify if it's possible to fit QS3 model with an existing 7" duct?

    Thanks.

    Answer: 
    Thank you for your question on the model QS3 series range hood. The QS3 comes with a 7” round duct plate that would be installed on top of the hood after the rectangular and semi-circular knockouts are removed. The instructions are on page 4, step 8 under “Prepare The Hood”.

    I just moved and my Allure vent hood looks like the picture of QS330BL, but I cannot see a model number to be sure. Where do I find the model number? I would like to download the owners manual. Thank you. PS Unbelievable that you allow people to upload photos but you will not accept mine because they are 640 x 480.

    Answer: 
    Thank you for your question on the model QS330BL range hood. There is a data plate underneath the range hood, usually on the left hand side. You will need to remove the filters and possibly the bottom cover to see it. Please contact the Technical Service Department at 800-637-1453 for further assistance.

    How to stop the loud rattling noise made by the flapping door on the vent?

    I have a new QS330WW. I've had the earlier version of this hood for 12 years and have always loved it. On the new one, however, when the fan is operating the flapping door on the vent makes a very annoying tinny rattling noise. How can I stop this? The fan is top ducted to the outside by the 3-1/2" x 10" duct. . Thank you.

    Answer: 
    Thank you for your question on the model QS330WW range hood. When the fan is running and you are getting a rattling noise from the back draft damper, the problem is normally some sort of obstruction in the duct work or installation problem. Please contact the Technical Service Department at 800-637-1453 for further assistance.

    Why is some bulbs dim while others are bright

    Customer avatar
    by
    Baffled
    Hawaii, USA
     on QS336SS
    I originally used the recommended halogen bulbs. After a couple of years, they had to be replaced. The right side light would not work with the replacement halogen bulb but worked with the recommended incandescent bulb. Recently, I replaced both bulbs with cfl bulbs. Initially it worked OK. It stared off dim and came brighter after a period of time. Now, the bulbs remain dim and does not get bright. When bulb is put on a lamp, the bulb gets bright. I tried a coil type cfl bulb and it gets bright. What goes?

    Answers

    Answer: 
    Thank you for your question on the model QS336SS range hood. The only bulbs recommended for the QS336SS range hood are (2) PAR20, 50 watt maximum halogen bulbs or (2) R16 40 watt maximum incandescent bulbs. We do not recommend using CFL bulbs in the hood. Some manufacturers are making the bulbs with a shorter neck and the base of the bulb will not reach the bottom of the socket. You may want to try a different manufacturer of bulb. Please contact the Technical Service Department at 800-637-1453 for further assistance.
