    Rated 4 out of 5 by It is a good product with reasonable sound level and appearance It is a good product with reasonable sound level and appearance. I suggest the manufacturer should provide 2 bulbs along with unit which will give a customer satisfaction with little money and not to waste time on what bulb it fits. August 4, 2015
    Rated 3 out of 5 by Not that great a product. This product is very noisy, and the lighting very poor. I had a much better Broan product in my previous house that I just loved. Had no choice with this one, the builder installed it. July 16, 2015
    Rated 4 out of 5 by Works well, a little loud on the high setting The installers didn't have any difficulty and the unit works well. February 23, 2015
    Rated 4 out of 5 by very basic product but does what i need the hood vent is perfect for what I use it for. I have no problems with this hood and it has been working just fine. February 14, 2015
    Rated 4 out of 5 by Perfect size and strength Doing a kitchen remodel and needing to build a custom range vent. This unit was compact and fit the bill on my design. I was also surprized that it shipped the same day that I ordered it and it delivered the second day. Awesome. Thank you.. February 9, 2015
    Rated 4 out of 5 by Overall There were installation pieces missing from two different boxes Overall: quite pleased with this unit. Installation: one person and very easy. Operation: lighting is good, odour, smoke, etc removal works very well. Cons: would be nice to have the capability to remote the switching for the unit. Definitely recommend this unit! February 7, 2015
    Rated 3 out of 5 by It works well but... Just ordered our third vent. It works well and installs easy enough but after a few years( after monthly cleaning) the grease drips off the motor. Hard to keep clean. Also after 2 years it starts to squeak. So here we are ordering number three. I think were going to see if we can find something else that will fit into our space that's more easy to maintain and hopefully will last longer. Its getting old popping the canopy off and reinstalling. As always the devil is in the details. It does work well just has a short "shelf life" . November 20, 2014
    Rated 5 out of 5 by This product has great features. We haven't had this product very long but so far we are enjoying it. September 7, 2014

    PM250 -is this a recirculating ventilation fan.

     on PM250
    I have cabinets that cannot be vented to the outside because of heating and air vents that are in the way. I am now in the process of remodeling my kitchen, and I purchased the PM250 to place over the stove in my custom cabinet for a recirculating ventilation fan. I also bought the 356NDK non-ducted recirculation kit module au charbon. Now I'm confused. I wanted the air to come back out at the bottom (back toward the stovetop). The PM250 and recirculating kit looks like it will go straight up and out of my cabinets at the top. Should I purchase another one of your products instead, or is there a way to make the PM250 work for me?

    Answer: 
    Thank you for your question on the model PM250 custom kitchen exhaust power unit. The PM250 is designed to be vented to the outside, but the model 356NDK does give you the option of making it non-ducted. Using the 356NDK, you do need to run seven inch ducting from the top of the PM250 to a 4” x 10” angle boot and vent it out of the soffit above the cabinet. If you cannot run the ducting through the cabinet above, or you do not have a soffit above the cabinet, the 356NDK would not work for you. There is no option for the air to come back out at the bottom (back toward the stovetop). Please contact the Technical Service Department at 800-637-1453 if you need further assistance.

    Answer: 
    Thank you for your question on the model PM250 kitchen exhaust system. The duct collar for the PM250 should measure 6-7/8 inches and there should be no problem attaching seven inch duct work to it. Please contact the Technical Service Department at 800-637-1453 for assistance.

    Instead of a hood, we plan to use a 12" deep cabinet above the range. Can I mount this into the 12" cabinet and use it as a non-ducted hood?

    Answer: 
    Thank you for your question on the model PM390 kitchen exhaust system. The PM390 should be able to go into a 12” deep cabinet. The cabinet would need to have an internal height of at least 16”. The hole in the bottom of the cabinet would need to be 19-1/2” x 10-1/4”. Please contact the Technical Service Department at 800-637-1453 if you need further assistance.

    Fan comes on spontaneously.

     on PM390
    While having hardwood floors installed upstairs (with much banging and vibration) my fan kept going on and off. The switching seemed to correspond to impacts that shook the walls. Before I call an electrician, could this be caused by the thermal sensor being subjected to unnatural vibration? Worried that there may be a loose connection somewhere and a fire hazard.

    Answer: 
    Thank you for your question on your PM390 range hood insert. It is very well possible that something has come loose inside the unit. Please give our Technical Support department a call at 1-800-637-1453 for more assistance. They can supply you with service repair agencies if necessary. Please know this would not be a fire hazard. Thank you.
