  • Professional style that fits under any cabinet. True professional style and performance has never been easier to bring home with the E60000 range hoods, in 18" under-cabinet versions. Styling is fresh and modern, yet designed to easily complement popular pro-style cooking products. These models come with integrated internal blowers or dedicated external blower capability. Both embody professional features such as powerful blowers, baffle filters, brilliant halogen lighting and variable speed controls. And while you won’t see this feature it is hard to miss the quiet operation—two Sones or less at normal speed. To carry the professional theme even further, select the optional stainless steel backsplash with adjustable shelving. When you want professional style and performance, trust BROAN to cover every detail.

  • Is this hood available as a 27" deep model?

    W brand sells this hood as both 24" and 27" deep. Is a 27" model available from Broan?
    Asked by: CS
    Thank you for your question on the model E60E42SS range hood. The E60E42SS range hood only comes 24” deep. It does not come in a 27” deep version.

    What's the difference between E60E and E64E

    I can't choose between these two models. From the website description, E60E is wall-mount and E64E is under-cabinet. E64E can work with automatic make-up air dampers while E60E doesn't have this feature. Any other difference between the two that would help me make a decision? Thanks.
    Asked by: wondering
    Thank you for your question on the model E60E and E64E range hoods. Besides the height of the E60E, you are correct about the differences in these two range hoods, except that the E60E can also work with the automatic make-up air dampers. The E64E is normally used when you want to have a cabinet above it, but you would not want a cabinet above the E60E.

    Which fan produces less noise at full power in this vent scenerio?

    Would a 600 CFM internal blower make less noise than a 600 CFM external blower mounted horizontally straight out the rear of the hood (no 90 degree elbow)? The horizontal run would be through a fiberglass batt insulated 2x6 exterior wall cavity with 1/2 plywood sheathing and a brick veneer.
    Asked by: Aaron
    Thank you for your question on the model E60E42SS range hood. An externally mounted blower is always quieter than an internal blower. Please contact the Technical Service Department at 800-637-1453 if you need further assistance.

    Where are the instructions for connecting to the automatic vent-air dampers?

    I have a model E60E48SS. I bought it specifically because I wanted to use the external blower AND because I thought it would connect with the MD8 series dampers. I CAN NOT FIND ANY INSTRUCTIONS ON HOW TO MAKE THE CONNECTIONS? Help? Thanks
