Rated 1 out of 5 by bb405 Don't Buy, you will be sorry
Installed as part of a complete kitchen remodel and upgrade a little over two years ago. Fan will not operate, needs new circuit board. Quoted $176.00 just for the board. Add cost of service call and additional labor and it is obviously more economical to buy a new one with a warranty.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Giovanni23 Blows lots of air into kitchen when ducted
I had this hood installed without ductwork for a number of years. Then I went to considerable trouble to install ducting through my roof and connect it to that. It still blows a great deal of air onto the stove top through the six vent holes in front of the lights that are fed by the air chute. I don't think it's putting any less air into my kitchen, or onto what I'm cooking (cooling it off), than it did before I had it ducted! I thought something must be broken, but tech support says it is supposed to work this way… I'm not happy about it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Elaine88 This product has great features
One of my favorite features of this range hood is that it automatically speeds up the fan if you have it set too low.
It is a bit louder than I would like on the higher settings.
Overall I really like this range hood.

Rated 5 out of 5 by katethecook Excellent for day-to-day
I find I use the fan at the lowest setting ALL the time in my kitchen (a ventilation cul de sac) and the lights on the 2 lower settings most often. At the middle and high settings the fan is louder than I might wish, and the highest setting on the lights is brighter than I can imagine ever needing over the stove. Over all, though, this unit is a HUGE improvement on anything I've ever had before!

Rated 4 out of 5 by SWALEEDS Very Good product but excellent, A+ Customer Service !
We did experience a problem with a transformer inside our Broan Unit. This occurred after approx. 1 1/2 months. We called for Customer Service and they had a technician come to our home with 2 days. He had to order a replacement part but had our unit running with a few days.
Please note that the unit has great features, especially the automatic high fan when temperatures are exceedingly high over the stove. The noise level at high can be a bit too loud. Filters are easily changed. All questions are answered quickly by their Customer Services.
We would definely buy another Broan Unit based on the Customer Service alone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by PhilR Really Good Over-Range Ventt Hood
I was replacing and older (40 years) Nu-Tone Range Hood 42 inches wide. The local Big Box Hardware stores and their websites told me that Manufacturers didn't make them any more. I learned different when I went on line to find a 42 inch wide range hood. Most of them offered a wide wange of hood demensions. This is where I found Broan and down loaded the installation instructions and detailed specifications. I found a reasonable price and ordered it. It turned out to be a quicker delivery than I expected. I was also surprised at how easy the installation was, how quietly it operated and how it matched the mounting and vent alignment of the old unit. My wife appreciates the fact that the extension over the counter in front of the cabinets is less than the old unit and no longer bumps her head on the outer corners and that they are rounded. The lights are also a great plus.
