Could I run this into 2 1/2" X 14" wall stack for about 2' up a wall to get to the attic?
Thank you for your question on the model PME300 kitchen ventilation system. The PME300 requires the use of six inch round duct work. If you can convert the six inch round to the 2-1/2” x 14” rectangular duct work, it should work fine for you.

Alternative to fluorescent lights?
This appears to be a perfect product, except for the unfortunate fluorescent lighting. Are there other factory options available? If not, I would have to purchase LEDs with G24Q base. Is this a dimming circuit?
Thank you for your question on the Broan PME300. We do not recommend substituting light bulbs other than what is described to be used. We do have similar unit such as the PM390 and the PM500. The PM390uses candelabra 40-watt lamps and the PM500 uses 12V, 20-watt lamps. Both units have the dimension housing as the PME300. If you have further questions please contact Technical Support directly at 800-637-1453.

(PME300) Why does the internal height of cabinet have to be minimum 16” ?
(PME300) Although the unit spec states that it is just 10 3/4" inches high in total, the installation instructions require the cabinet into which the unit is installed be at least 16" high internally. Why is this?
Thank you for your question on the model PME300 range hood insert. You will need to have room for the discharge collar and any elbows or transtions. This is the reason for the higher inside height measurement. If you have further questions, please contact our Technical Support Department directly at 800-637-1453.

Do you need the Liner - for example LB30?
We plan to install this unit and then, build a custom hood/surround around it. Do we still need the LINER (LB30) or is this Power Pack "finished" enough around the edges that if we "frame" it in - it will appear finished?
Thank you for your question on the model PME300 kitchen ventilation system. When installing the PME300, we would recommend using some sort of metal liner to cover the exposed wood areas around the insert, underneath the custom hood. Please contact the Technical Service Department at 800-637-1453 if you need further assistance.
