    • Quiet 0.6 sones at Normal speed and only 5.0 sones at High speed, allows you to clear out cooking smoke and unwanted smells without disturbing the peace in your kitchen
    • 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
    • Full filter design has an antimicrobial coating to inhibit the formation of odor-producing bacteria. Aluminum micro-mesh filters are dishwasher-safe to give you the confidence your kitchen will always smell fresh
    • Enclosed non-stick bottom pan ensures quick clean-up to make your work fast and easy
    • 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 This product is adequate I feel that the product is average value. It works as described. However in this day and age of energy-saving consciouness, I find it hard to believe that the product's halogen lighting system cannot accept energy-saving LED lighting. March 11, 2014
    Rated 5 out of 5 by Very good features,and looks great Bought a new gas stove stainless steel,removed a microwave above the stove that was poor in venting out.did a lot of research on brands of hood vents. The reviews I found on this hood vent helped in me and my wife's decision of buying this hood vent. My wife loves the the lighting. The four lights light the stove surface great. Venting is very good and quiet.and the product is very attractive. March 10, 2014
    Rated 2 out of 5 by not great not happy with this unit because the lights flicker and the fan flickers.i cant get this unit replaced.they want to send a tech to fix it.its a new unit and it should be replaced not repaired. March 10, 2014
    Rated 5 out of 5 by Good design and performance This range hood was the perfect solution for my kitchen remodel project. It has a reasonably quiet fan, very good lighting, and great looking stainless steel finish. The controls are easy to see and very accessible. The only issue I had was when I had to replace the bulbs. I had to adjust the bracket height of the bulb socket for the GE brand replacement bulbs. This required removal of the filters, center cover plate, and side plate so I could access the brackets. Not an impossible task but somewhat annoying to do for a bulb replacement. Otherwise, I am happy with my purchase. March 10, 2014
    Rated 5 out of 5 by style and lighting are very nice We purchased to replace a very old unit when new appliances were purchased...........glad we did. March 10, 2014
    Rated 3 out of 5 by Light bulb replacement is a nightmare! I love the look of this fan and we were very satisfied until we had to replace the bulbs. The bulbs available in local lighting stores do not work unless adjustments are made to the fan. We had to have a service man come out to discover this. It took him an hour (and cost us $35) for him to adjust the socket so the bulb would fit. The other option is ordering through Broan and paying $42 for a bulb. Yikes! February 15, 2014
    Rated 2 out of 5 by Uneasy Worried the fan kicks on by itself. Hoping to get the problem resolved with broan. February 12, 2014
    Rated 5 out of 5 by This is a very good product I'm thoroughly satisfied with this product an Excellent purchase. March 13, 2014

    thinking of buying one, but really don't want it to come on by itself. I would like to be able to turn the fan off when I want.

    Answer: 
    The automatic heat sentry in our range hoods is there to prevent any overheating condition within the hood and is considered a safety feature which will prolong the life of your hood. It cannot be turned off or disabled and should not be used as an 'automatic on' feature.

    Is the back of this range hood stainless?

    Our area of installation would leave the back exposed and not up against a kitchen wall. Our old broken range hood had an overhang on both the front and the back.

    Answer: 
    Thank you for your question on the model QP236SS range hood. If you are using 7” duct work on your range hood, you would need to install the 7” round duct plate to the top of the hood after you punch out the knock out plates. The 3-1/4” x 10” damper duct connector would not be used.

    The push button for the light has pushed in and is now non functional. Seems to be detached.
    The fan button appears to not be far from doing the same thing.

    Is this a know problem? Is there an easy fix?
