  • Rated 5 out of 5 by 1 reviewer.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by I am so happy with my new hood This whisper quiet hood does an excellent job of extracting odor and includes several power levels. I don't usually use the most powerful unless extremely odorous. I like it so much more than the vent-a-hood I have in another property. I wish I had found this before. It is very attractive against the wall and the S/S looks to be very durable and cleans well. It vents directly out an exterior wall which always helps. March 10, 2014

    Decorative vents or functional?

    When non ducted can the vents that are exposed towards the ceiling be covered with crown molding? Are the only decorative or serve a purpose?

    Answer: 
    Thank you for your question on the model RME5030SS range hood. The RME5030SS can only be installed ducted to the outside. When installed with a nine foot ceiling, you will see the vents in the chimney. They can be covered with crown molding. Please contact the Technical Service Department at 800-637-1453 for further assistance.

    Your answers to the two questions on vents are contradictory. This causes me to ask again the question on a ceiling height less than eight feet.

    Is it possible to use only the lower decorative cover? Duct would pass behind a soffit at 6' 8.25" to a ceiling height of 7'- 7.25" Bottom of Hood would be between 24" and 28" as necessary for soffit to conceal 6" duct.

    I notice as parts the two cover pieces are sold separately, which indicates they can be separated. They are also called "decorative," which suggests the assembly will function without the upper.

    Answer: 
    Thank you for your question on the model RME5030SS range hood. Using just one of the decorative covers will cause a fit up problem with either the ceiling bracket or the channel where the hood flares. Please call the Technical Support Department at 800-637-1453 with questions.
