    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

    Can we reduce the vent from 7" to 6" or less off the power pack?

    Answer: 
    Thank you for your question on the model PM250 range hood insert. The PM250 requires a 7” round duct work be run from the unit completely to the outside. We do not recommend reducing the duct work from the 7” round.

     on PM250
    I 'm planning on fastening the PM 250 under a 30" wide cabinet. the problem is that the cabinets width in 12 inches. Do I need to build a false front that projects out from the unit? I was intending to simply install longer new doors that would cover the unit when closed. However, that leaves me with very little space in the front and back of the unit. Can this be safely done?

    Answer: 
    Thank you for your question on the model PM250 range hood insert. This insert is normally installed into a custom made hood, but it can be put into a cabinet. The opening for the PM250 in the bottom of the cabinet needs to be 10-1/4 deep and 19-1/2 wide. You also need a minimum 1” from the rear wall cabinet and 3” from the front wall cabinet. The internal height of the cabinet has to be a minimum of 16”. As long as you can meet these dimensions you would be fine.

    Answer: 
    Thank you for your question on the model PM250 range hood insert. We can only recommend installing the unit as described in the installation instructions. The round duct adaptor on the PM250 housing is meant to be permanently attached and would not easily be removed.

    The fuse in the control panel (in basement) has not blown and there is still power to the rest of the kitchen.
