  • The QS2 Range Hood is over 50% quieter than the average hood and delivers brilliant halogen lighting to your cook top. Three-position, soft-touch controls and a non-stick, DuPont Teflon® coating on the bottom cover make it smooth and easy to clean. This hood’s quiet nature is due to its high-performance centrifugal blower. You’ll be able to carry on a conversation while cooking and you won’t miss out on the juicy details.

    • Brushed stainless steel construction is durable, easy to clean and a perfect match to your other stainless appliances
    • High-contrast, black controls stand out for ease of use
    • 36” width to fit with like-size cook tops and cabinetry. Proper sizing provides effective ventilation
    • Rated at 0.9 sones on Normal speed, the QS2 is over 50% quieter than the typical range hood in its class. The 300 CFM fan provides effective ventilation and you won’t have to turn up the volume to hear your favorite song while cooking
    • Three-speed, soft-touch controls with LED indicators give you convenient command of Normal, Mid and High fan speeds. Use the quiet, Normal, setting for average cooking conditions and switch to Mid or High to quickly remove unwanted cooking aromas
    • Twin halogen light system designed for bulbs up to 50 W,(PAR20 bulbs not included), can be adjusted to three levels with the front soft-touch push buttons. They provide bright, soft or ambient illumination for impressive lighting over the cook top and surrounding area. Enjoy the clear advantage of seeing what you are cooking
    • Two dishwasher-safe, aluminum grease filters are engineered to remove airborne particles efficiently and clean up easily to keep your range hood operating at peak efficiency (For non-duct option use charcoal filter, Model BPSF36, sold separately)
    • Clean SenseTM charcoal filters (BPSF36, sold separately) have an indicator that changes color when replacement is necessary for an easy maintenance reminder (non-ducted installation only)
    • Heat SentryTM feature detects excessive heat and adjusts blower speed to high automatically. This smart feature protects and prolongs the life of your range hood
    • Easy installation with keyhole mounting slots, connector/backdraft dampers and four ducting options provide simple flexibility
      • 3 1/4” x 10” vertical discharge
      • 3 1/4” x 10” horizontal discharge
      • 7” round, vertical discharge
      • Non-ducted recirculation requires two Clean SenseTM charcoal filters, BPSF36, sold separately
    • Includes adjustable duct connectors to accommodate off-center ductwork and make installation a snap
    • Permanently lubricated fan motor is designed for years of trouble-free service
    • UL listed for safety and HVI certified to ensure confidence in performance ratings

  • Rated 4.2 out of 5 by 77 reviewers.
    Rated 2 out of 5 by poor exhaust Very poor suction, steam collects on bottom of fan and drips back on to stove top or into food being cooked. Would not buy this fan again. February 6, 2015
    Rated 4 out of 5 by Range hood is good unit with nice features The range hood works fine now that the original fan blade was replaced with a new one they went to me for free. It still rubs against the metal plate below it but only on high speed. The unit removes smoke and odors well. The dual lights are great features that light up the stove below and surrounding counters. February 6, 2015
    Rated 5 out of 5 by This unit is a very nice and economical. The unit is good looking and very easy to keep clean compared to other stainless steel appliances. The controls are easily accessible and the filters are a snap to remove and clean in the dishwasher. February 9, 2015
    Rated 5 out of 5 by NIce range hood All in all we like this range hood the light is plenty bright and it is nice that there are 3 choices for both the fan and light. It could be a bit quieter but it does a very good job. We replaced an over the range microwave with this as we didn't think it was doing a good enough job at clearing the air. February 8, 2015
    Rated 5 out of 5 by Great product, would buy this again The features on this product are great. The lighting is great along with the quiet fan . February 8, 2015
    Rated 5 out of 5 by Great product This Under Cabinet Hood looks great with our black stovetop. It was installed by the company from which we bought it. Our only problem was that it was hard to change the light bulbs and often the bulbs would go out even though they were not burned out. It was difficult to get them tightened just right. But, the problem has been eliminated by changing to a different style LED bulb recommended by the lighting representative at Lowe's...no more problems. It works great. February 7, 2015
    Rated 5 out of 5 by This product has great features The light is the best. It lights up the entire cooking area very well. The fan works very well as well. Matches the stove we bought perfectly February 7, 2015
    Rated 5 out of 5 by Just what we were looking for! The product was suggested by the sales person at the store! It is EXACTLY what we wanted - good value for money. It was easy to install; instructions were clear and systematic. It works exactly according to what was promised. It is silent, draws fumes and smoke effectively and eliminates most of the smoke and odors. It is very easy to operate and maintain. We are delighted. February 7, 2015

    I used to be able to get these out quite easily but now it just does not seem to work and I really need to clean them. This model has two round nickel-sized buttons toward the front but they do nothing to move the filters. PLEASE help!!

    This is a non ducted hood. We have checked the screws into the cabinets and they are secure. why is there so much vibration ( and noise ) at the higher speed?
