    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Broke down in 3 years Dont buy. Builder installed. Never performed well. Too noisy. Stopped working in 40 months. Last 8 months was huge noise. Replacing with different brand.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Terrible This came with our home and I have already told the builder it is a terrible choice. Not only is it incredibly loud on its high setting, it does virtually NOTHING in terms of suction. I tried to attach a video showing how the steam from a boiling pot is going anywhere BUT the vent above -- but the video won't load. Very disappointed.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not installed properly by home builder....Fischer Homes Not installed properly by home builder...Fischer Homes. Only a third of screws used, which will be addressed at 30-day Warranty inspection. When blower is on, air flows back down. Also, the two light bulbs which came with the unit are such low wattage/voltage, they are extremely dim and virtually useless. Looked on line and to get a brighter bulb the cost is ridiculous. Brighter bulbs should have been included with the unit, as the included ones are USELESS.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from PM250-Noisy and parts are cheap. Have had this unit for five years (provided by builder), its cheaply built, noisy fan on low or high, have replaced the motor under warranty after two years, Light shield is of poor quality, have removed it and grease filter several times, and most recently order new light shield as it has fallen apart...need better mounting...removing cover is simple and access to grease filter, however, components above grease filter absorb grease too, yucky!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from It is easy and simple to use. With a previous unit, the home fire alarms continuously came on because it did not exhaust any smoke. This model works very well. It exhausts all of the smoke and smells. For example, recently we fried fish and could smell the fish outside and only a little inside. It works and the alarms do not come on. The only reason I did not give it a five star rating is because the sliding clasps that hold the screen to the unit sometimes won't hold it in place. So you have to make sure that they are actually grasping the unit before releasing the screen when remounting it after cleaning. A simple, non-screw, clasp could be easily designed to fix this small problem.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to use The product looks great and works well above stove top.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Average operation, good air flow, but loud Fan removes a good amount of air, smoke and cooking fumes, but is loud. Light is only on/off, no night light feature. Used it for only 3 months and some oil drops have formed and began dripping from motor housing thru the filter screen and onto cooktop. Not clear if the oil is from the fan motor or from cooking oil that collects in the fan blades and then flows into the fan housing and eventually leaks through the housing separation plane forming the drips of oil.

  • Is there a minimum height above the PM 390 unit for the ductwork to pass through the wall

    Asked by: Colrob
    If your ductwork passes through a wall you will need a 6" galvanized elbow so at least 4"-6" so no actual minimum other than your elbow.

    Fan noise

    I have a new house and the builder installed the pm-390-hs unit. It is very loud and doesn't seems to pull very little air. Is there anything that I should check ? Is the fan running backwards ? Something isn't right with it, if this is how it is I will be replacing it with a quite unit. It hard to hear anyone when I'm cooking and it is running. Please let me know. Thank You

    Make sure he connected an exhaust duct to the fan and it is free of all obstructions,

    how can I use the PM390 in non-ducted installation with no cabinet soffit?

    Asked by: Jeff
    I wouldn't even try unless it exhausts to your attic but then you will get grease and condensation on everything
