    Rated 5 out of 5 by Easy to install - worry free since I installed The product is flawless. Too often products have some hidden issue with installation. Not so! Instructions and diagrams were clear and concise! March 10, 2014
    Rated 4 out of 5 by This product does an overall good job. Cons 1.) The Plastic attachment clips on the filter housing seem cheap. I am concerned that after years of heat and cool from being used they may break and will not allow me to reinstall the filter after cleaning. 2.) From and ergonomically standpoint the on and off switch’s for both the fan and light are difficult to find. 3.) Very difficult to install the filter housing. I actually had the filter housing fall onto the stovetop while in use. Pros 1.) Seams to pull all of the heat and condensation from above the stovetop. 2.) Lights are easy to change out when they go out. 3.) The lighting is sufficient and located correctly. March 17, 2014
    Rated 5 out of 5 by Finally a real exhaust fan This works great! Finally an exhaust that does not just blow the steam around. You can even see it sucking the steam toward it. Mine has an angled duct going outside and still works great. It was installed in a new construction home so I cannot speak to ease of installation but I did not hear any complaints from builder that it was a problem. March 12, 2014
    Rated 5 out of 5 by Very efficient product First working ventilation system I ever had. Love performance and clean quiet look March 11, 2014
    Rated 5 out of 5 by Great product This product's performance is superior to others I have used and is a very good value. March 10, 2014
    Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent lighting and filter The lighting is great over the stove. It is extremely easy to remove the plate to change the filter and light bulbs. If I could improve anything, it would be to have a quieter fan. March 10, 2014
    Rated 5 out of 5 by Easy addition to bathroom project The ventilation fan was an excellent purchase for our bathroom renovation. The style was perfect and quietness just added to décor. I highly recommend Broan! March 10, 2014
    Rated 5 out of 5 by Great fan This exhaust fan fit perfectly behind our new wood hood enclosure. It has plenty of cfm's to remove all odor and smoke from the stove. It is quiet considering what it does. On high it's a bit noisy but one has to expect that. The installation was quite easy but I am pretty skilled so it may be harder for someone that is not skilled. The light is ample and this fan is 3 times better and quieter than our old fan that was almost as loud as a vacuum cleaner. For a quality kitchen hood exhaust fan at a reasonable price this exhaust fan can't be beat. I would suggest you use this fan behind one of the hood enclosures suggested by Broan. Also in my past experience with Broan they back their warranties. Their customer service is also excellent. December 8, 2013

    How do you remove the mesh filter on the PM250?

    It appears that four screws must be removed from the cover, which also holds the light cover, in order to remove the mesh filter. Is this correct?

    Answer: 
    Thank you for your question on the model PM250 kitchen exhaust power module. To remove the grease filter you need to remove the four screws from the cover and take off the metal grid. You then need to take off the metal wires holding the filters in place.

     on PM250
    I have a new liner that came without bulbs. I know the description but from what I gather, it's too broad. I tried all sort of bulbs from Home Depot and Lowes nothing I tried worked. Does anyone have a specific product for this?

    How close to the vertical roof duct can the cabinetry be?

    Customer avatar

    Abby
     on PM390
    I cannot seem to find a dimension for the location (from the front or back) for the duct on the top of the unit. I know the duct is about 6" round but I need to know how close the cabinet can angle in if we are building a wood cabinet surround/hood.
    I also know it needs to be installed at least an inch from the back wall, then there's about a half inch before the box of the module starts. How far in on that box is the duct?

    No soffit? PM390/357NDK

    Customer avatar
    by
    Abbi
    Shelby Township, MI, USA
     on PM390
    Hello, I purchased the PM390 power pack and the 357NDK non-duct kit to go in my custom cabinetry, which has an LT30 liner. I need this to vent straight up, instead of up and to the side, as there are cabinets on all sides with an opening at the top. I do not have a soffit. Can I bypass using the L shaped duct piece? If so, should I put anything over the cylinder duct? Will I have issues with my ceiling? If this won't work, what do you recommend? Any help would be much appreciated.

    Answer: 
    Thank you for your question on the model PM390 kitchen exhaust system power pack and 357NDK non-duct kit. The only recommendation we would have using these two units would be to run the duct work up to a soffit area, placing an elbow on the duct work and bringing the exhaust straight out through the soffit. If you do not have a soffit and vent it straight up towards the ceiling, you may end up with a greasy build-up on your ceiling. Please contact the Technical Service Department at 800-637-1453 for further assistance.
