    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Terrible blower! It's been rattling since it was installed and Broan only contracts with the WORST service technicians and I haven't been able to have it repaired! Terrible on all fronts! I wish I had never purchased this blower!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really removes cooking oders This is a great solution for the kitchen when matcehd with the Broan 293603 Downdraft fan. At 1100 cfm is so powerfull that if the flames on the range are on low and the fan on high it can even suck out the flames. You would almost never need it on high. It does take a heating and cooling specialist to install the blower and vent.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Using for a kitchen vent hood motor I have an very large stainless steel hood found at a restaurant junk yard. The stove is a basic Jenn Air gas stove. Not commercial. Talked with tech support for Broan and they recommended this product. The motor is in the attic. Turned out to be a good choice. 280 CFM is a decent amount of air flow. Would have maybe wanted something a little stronger but the 8" diamater setup out my roof could not handle anything larger. 280 cfm needs an 8" hole. The next step up is 600 CFM which would be way too much. Using low speed on a motor is not good long term (with a control switch). Hooked it up and burned a piece of newspaper in a pan on the stove. A lot of smoke. It worked great. No smell of smoke in the house. Sucked all the smoke out. You can hear the motor running but it's much more quiet than standard hoods with a compact motor. The motor box on this is about 12" x 12" x12". It turned out to be a good choice.

    Blower Mounting

    Can he blower be mounted so the vent is straight through in a vertical fashion?
    Asked by: Kevin
    Thank you for your question on the HLB in-line blower. The unit must be installed horizontally. The damper/duct connector can be mounted to discharge vertically. For more assistance, please contact Technical Support directly at 800-637-1453.

    does the roof cap for this need a built in damper?

    can you recommend a roof cap for this blower, and will it need a built in damper on the cap or not?
    Asked by: DG
    Thank you for question on the HLB3 in-line blower. This blower uses an 8" round duct size with the option of expanding this to a 10". We do recommend purchasing a roof cap with a built-in backdraft damper. The model 634 or 644 would be our roof caps for an 8" round duct size with a built-in backdraft damper and bird screen. If you decided to use the 10" duct you would require an additional 414 to transition from 8" to 10". The 10" round roof cap is the model 437. The 437 has a built-in spring-loaded backdraft damper and bird screen. If you have further questions, please contact Technical Support directly at 800-637-1453.

    Where should HLB3 be located

    Should the unit be mounted closer to the 283003 or closer to where the duct discharges the house?
    Asked by: TJ
    Thank you for your question on the model HLB3 in-line range hood blower. The HLB3 would normally be installed somewhere in the middle or towards the end of the duct run. Just make sure that you can easily get to the unit so you can remove the access panel and remove the blower for periodic cleaning. Please contact the Technical Service Department at 800-637-1453 if you need further assistance.
