    Rated 5 out of 5 by Easy to install and perfect fit! We have an older home and finding a replacement fan, we were told by contractors, was impossible. Build it found it! Works great!!! May 6, 2016
    Rated 4 out of 5 by It is a good value for the money The was a replacement unit which fit nicely into the old opening. I like the night lite feature and the fan may not be completely quite but it is not bad. April 29, 2016
    Rated 1 out of 5 by Worst product .Not working at all We bought new home from Pulte . we upgraded kitchen with vent hood from builder .They installed this product . From day one it was making so much noise. It was not working as expected. Even though i used it , top and side of my cabinets are having oily dust. After a month it stopped working completely . it was just giving noise but no air is coming out of it . I am really disappointed . I don't recommend any one to buy this . specially from Pulte. My previous house i was using GE vent which was just 100$ and worked neatly. June 2, 2016
    Rated 2 out of 5 by Vent flappers stopped working which allowed cold air to blow inside my kitchen during winter. Vent flappers that open when exiting smoke and close when unit is not on to keep cold or hot air out stopped functioning correctly within the first year. My contractor had to come back to replace them just a week ago. Over the winter months ice was collecting on the vent inside my house from the amount of cold air blowing in. I should have not listened to my contractor and bought a better, more expensive unit. April 29, 2016
    Rated 5 out of 5 by Great product Great addition to my stovetop....strong enough for odors April 26, 2016
    Rated 2 out of 5 by Needs to include a damper. With no damper, I can't install. The damper for this model is not sold in big box hardware stores. I have to special order a cheap part. Waste of time. September 22, 2015
    Rated 3 out of 5 by product review Have not had it long enough to really know about smoke and odor removal as we have been mostly grilling outside. Have used it for steam removal, etc. Would like it to be a bit quieter; not bad on low but noisy on high. And would like better light output but haven't found out if we can put in higher wattage. Difficult to get vent back in place after looking at lights, in fact have not been able to. October 19, 2015
    Rated 4 out of 5 by good, but expected more for a Broan I expected this being a Broan to be quieter than my old hood, but it is still loud even at the lowest setting. I also wish the buttons to turn on both the light and fan were either a knob or something that is easier to locate without having to look up into the hood as mine is surrounded by a decorative wooden built in. Lastly, I have mixed feelings about the heat sensor...while for safety it is a good idea for the fan to come on if someone would forget to turn it on while cooking something that may fill the house with smoke, I do not like the fact that if one didn't turn the fan on and it senses heat and comes on even in the off mode that he/she would have to shut it off from the electrical breaker.

    Do I receive any of the benefits of the PM390 installed at this height? Do you have another venting solution that can be used at this height of 44"?

    Answers

    Answer: 
    Thank you for your question on the model PM390 kitchen ventilation system. The installation instructions do state “The bottom of the hood MUST NOT BE LESS than 24" and recommended at a maximum of 30" above cooktop for best capture of cooking impurities.” This is for optimum performance and is a pretty standard height for installing range hoods. The hood will work for you at 44”, but the higher you go above the 30”, the less effective the hood is. Please contact the Technical Service Department at 800-637-1453 if you need further assistance.
