  • The EVOLUTION Series of QP Range Hoods has a contemporary style and sleek appearance that will complement any kitchen design.  Easy to clean, brilliant lighting and quiet operation result in the perfect marriage of functionality.

    • Ultra quiet at less than 0.3 sones at Normal speed and only 5.0 sones at High speed, allows you to clear out cooking smoke and unwanted smells without disturbing the peace in your kitchen
    • 100 CFM at Normal speed and 450 CFM at High speed provides the smoke and odor clearing power you need, when you need it. A 4-speed soft-touch control with green LED indicators includes a Boost mode which is helpful for high heat cooking styles
    • An integrated LED clock-timer lets you time certain dishes, delay-off allows the hood to operate an extra 10 minutes after cooking, and an ambient light sensor turns on when it  senses low room light levels to provide the master chef with convenience and confidence in the kitchen
    • Four 50W Halogen MR16/GU10 lamps  provide brilliant lighting over and around the cooktop with 4-levels of brightness, including theater-style transition (bulbs  included), so you can see how things are cooking and clearly read the cookbook
    • Aluminum micro-mesh filters are dishwasher-safe to give you the confidence your kitchen will always smell fresh
    • Enclosed non-stick bottom pan ensures quick clean-up to make your work fast and easy
    • Advanced Heat Sentry™ detects excessive heat and turns blower to high, prolonging product life and ensuring your confidence in range hood performance
    • Choice of 3-1/4" x 10” rectangular or 7" round ducting ensures reliable discharge without repositioning the blower. Optional non-ducted installation requires  CleanSense™ charcoal filters (BPPF sold separately), providing you the right choice of installation for your kitchen
    • Optional remote control (BCR1 sold separately) has a magnetic base which allows you to position it wherever it is most convenient. Enables operation of blower speed, lighting and delay-off features from across the room, so range hood operation is always at your fingertips
    • Compatible with optional Broan Make-up Air Dampers (MD6T or MD8T, sold separately) to fit 6" or 8" ducting and help to balance the air pressure when the range hood is in use, keeping your environment comfortable

    Rated 5 out of 5 by Beautiful product! Fan runs very quietly and efficiently. Lights are great! I chose the Broan because it was to replace a very old model which was the same size. The old model still ran very efficiently, but I was not able to get it clean and it was loud. I believed that the replacement would be as good. So far it is proving to be true. I like the sleek, clean look, and the lighting is great. The fan runs very quietly. The low position is so quiet that it is hard to know if it is on, I rely on the fan button light to see if the fan is on. This was a very good choice! Thanks!! April 29, 2016
    Rated 4 out of 5 by Broan Range Hood This is a nice looking, effective range hood. It has a charcoal filter to remove odors that works well. It is high quality stainless steel and has bright lights and three speeds for the fan. If I could change one thing, I would put in LED lights as the halogen lights give off nice bright light but too much heat. April 27, 2016
    Rated 5 out of 5 by This Is The One If Your Space Above Stove Is Tight Read all the reviews about this hood and almost passed on it because of a few negative comments. Glad we didn't. We replaced a LG microwave with turbo ventilation. This hood is so much better at getting the cooking small out of the kitchen. When we looked at other manufacturers we couldn't find one that worked for our clearance between the cooktop and the hood vent. This was one of a few that met spec. We have used it six months now and like everything about it. Bright, Quiet on low speed and normal on high. You won't hear the low setting. Ours is above a gas cooktop and unlike some, I really like that it automatically bumps up the fan speed if there is too much heat. Then dials it down automatically. I installed it myself with no assistance and would say it was average difficulty. The fact that you can't turn it off only means you have a ton of heat that needs to be moved. Ours hasn't stayed on by itself more than a few times and then only for a couple of minutes max. Haven't had to replace a bulb yet but it comes with a remover so am not expecting any issue there. I would highly recommend this unit. March 27, 2016
    Rated 5 out of 5 by Great fit and features This performs as I had hoped. Nice design, great fan, light and accepts carbon filters. The remote has such limited range that I choose not to use it. Solid unit that fits my new kitchen design and wanted a unit that had a reputation of reliability. July 19, 2015
    Rated 5 out of 5 by This product has great engineering, materials, and performance. This product has delivered the quality and performance we were led to expect by the salesperson at the appliance store. It features button controls for lighting and fan speed, and it is easy to clean the stainless steel filters. The noise level is low for the high CFM capacity this product delivers. We are pleased with this purchase decision for our gas cook top. July 17, 2015
    Rated 1 out of 5 by Not effective... poor design. The blower is located off-center to the left, so anything that is cooked on the right side of your range is not captured. Even on the highest speed, cooking odors escaped into the house and not through the exhaust. Despite having to forfeit the installation costs, we ended up returning the unit. July 16, 2015
    Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Quiet Range Good We love this unit. Very quiet. Nightlight feature with photosensor comes in handy. July 16, 2015
    Rated 5 out of 5 by An excellent range hood for home use We just bought this for a remodeled kitchen. Our decision was based on the fact that, in the old kitchen, we had installed a similar model about three years ago. It performed as promised. The present one is more powerful, very quiet and with more options. Caution: If you remove the filters for washing, make sure you put them back with the proper face looking down; else, you cannot remove the filter w/out destroying it and they are expensive. That is one item Broan engineers may wish to reconsider. June 27, 2015

    Is it safe to operate the hood without the heat sensor plugged in?

    The hood would not turn off. I contacted tech support and was told that it was probably a bad sensor. After replacing the sensor, the hood still would not turn off. It works fine without the sensor plugged in.

    I woke up this morning and the fan was running in high speed and I haven’t been able to turn it off. I unplugged it for about 30 minutes hoping that this would reset and didn’t work either.

    Answer: 
    Thank you for your question on the model QP330WW range hood. To remove the light bulb in the QP330WW you would push in on the bulb and turn it counterclockwise approximately ½ inch. The bulb should then drop out of the socket. To install the bulb you would align the pins on the bulb with the large diameter opening in the socket, then push the bulb in towards the hood and rotate clockwise until firmly seated. Please contact the Technical Service Department at 800-637-1453 if you need further assistance.
