  • QP230BL is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 91.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from This product does a good job. This product does a good job of venting smoke and odors. The only reason I didn't give it an "excellent" was because of the lights. Something other than halogen lights would be better. Perhaps some LED lights would be better.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great lighting, Installation mounting options could be better Great look and lighting is excellent. Ventilation fan works well. Only negative was lack of different mounting hole options which made installation more difficult as this was replacing an existing range hood.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Fan and lighting Good, but bulb replacement/ installation difficult One Bulb did not work. Replacement bulb very, very difficult to install. Other than that, we like it.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from visual appeal I liked the looks of this Broan range hood. Broan produces a quality long lasting product. I have a bathroom ceiling vent that is 40 years old.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from this product looks great and does have great features I feel this particular range hood eliminates most normal cooking odors and adds a bit of class to the kitchen. The theater lights are an excellent added touch. I believe this range hood will last for many years to come and not go out of style.. 4 stars from me.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Looks good, low profile and works great! We purchased and installed the product about 6 months back as part of a kitchen remodel. We had a downdraft cooktop before so were concerned that an under-cabinet hood may be too prominent. Fortunately, this unit is low profile so almost blends in to our kitchen without being intrusive. Installation was a bit challenging in that one has to hold the unit up to the cabinet (so tough to do with one person) as it's being screwed in. The unit has been performing very well; we really like the multi levels of brightness options. The fan/ventilation is also good though it can get noisy on the highest setting. In most cases the low or medium setting was sufficient. Overall we are vey happy with the product and would recommend it.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Glad we found this product. Great lighting, low fan noise and easy installation. Received product and installed. It matched my original duct work and installation was easy. Lighting is excellent, and its simple features are good. Had an issue of lights staying on, and contacted Broan. They were extremely helpful and new of the situation that may occur. They sent a new electronic board and recommended an installer. Covered under warranty the board was replaced and my wife and i are pleased with the service and the unit. Good Value.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic fan & light We originally were looking for a fan with a little more suction power, but with county codes and regulations, we realized we'd have to install an input damper and some miscellaneous other things in our new house. We chose to go with this one because it was just below the code limit for those changes and, honestly, we are completely happy with this one! We rarely use the fan or light above the first setting, and when we've forgotten to turn it on, it's auto-on feature has done our job for us. When it is on, you can barely tell - it's not a typical yell-at-your-counterpart-over-the-fan-noise fan. ;) The only downside to this is the cost and slight difficulty to replace the halogen bulbs. I wish they were LED. Great buy!

    The bulb under the light and fan switches is burned out. Is this hard to replace and where can we get one?

    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.
    Asked by: Grahamprofound
    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

    Fan is blowing air out

    I just bought and installed a QP230BL under cabinet range hood. I have it ventilating outside through the wall, not the roof. When we staring using it, the blower is not venting out, but rather it is blowing air out to the stove. Can you help me troubleshoot this problem, please.

    Thank you for your question on the model QP230BL range hood. Please contact the Technical Service Department at 800-637-1453 for assistance.
