  • Rated 4.4 out of 5 by 61 reviewers.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent Customer Service...... This is a great product at a reasonable cost. The best part of this product is the customer service received 6 months after purchase. A memory board malfunctioned and we called for service. The Broan Company sent a technician to our home within 2 days. The part had to be ordered but the repair was done within 5 business days. We were please at the company's no-nonsense response. April 13, 2014
    Rated 2 out of 5 by unimpressed The intake is all the way on the left side of the range, it doesn't have enough power to suck up the stuff from the right side, especially on the first burner. It is supposed to vent to the outside but it still blows out the top back into the kitchen. The people who installed it have been here twice but they just threw their hands up and said contact Broan. It does have a good amount of light but I had a hard time finding the right light bulbs for the hood. March 12, 2014
    Rated 5 out of 5 by Grea t product, quiet, and very effective I purchased a stove from Maytag and a hood vent from Maytag.....cheap, exposed the wiring harness, and noisy, so I replaced with the Broan which was a good value for the product. Good lighting, easy to install and looks good and easy to maintain. I would recommend this product t o anyone wanting a stainless steel range hood. March 10, 2014
    Rated 5 out of 5 by top quality and great performance I was looking for a ventless range hood that actually worked -- this more than does the job! My previous hood would not eliminate smoke or odor -- this Broan hood does both --beautifully and quietly! Love the 3 speed fan feature -- depending on what I am cooking I can select the amount of exhausting I need done - from very low fan speed to very high. The two light feature gives me much more effective light than the one central bulb most units have ... and again, this unit has three lighting levels -- perfect for any situation from cooking to just having a low level light on over the stove area. Our installation was a bit tedious because of the way the previous unit had been installed but after a bit it went in and fit perfectly. Love this unit -- wish I had found it years before now! March 10, 2014
    Rated 5 out of 5 by Good Basic Product Every once in awhile you purchase a product that does its job well, without much fanfare and without being showy; this is one of those products. Installation was simple enough as is the operation, which is ideal. The design is clean and purposeful, as well as easy to clean and maintain. The unit vents well and operates quietly. It actually operates so quietly on the low setting that it is easy to forget it is running. The only complaint is that on high speed the backflow damper can rattle slightly. I would recommend a nylon insert to retain the damper instead of metal on metal contact. Other than that, I expect to have years of good use from this product. March 10, 2014
    Rated 5 out of 5 by Great stove top hood. Hood works great. Looks impressive and easy to use. The halogen lights provide excellent light for the cook top. Quality construction. April 7, 2014
    Rated 5 out of 5 by Has been installed 1year now, very happy. We were replacing an older vent hood, so installation was a breeze. Simply removed the old unit and install the new one. Ours does not vent to the outside, but it is very effective for removing steam from the the stove top area. It automatically turns on if temperature in the hood reaches a set temperature ... A nice feature. The variable speed of the fan means you can adjust to accommodate your needs and it doesn't sound like a jet engine starting up. Also enjoy the 3 brightness settings for the lights built into the hood. We have been very pleased and would recommend to anyone. March 15, 2014
    Rated 5 out of 5 by The features in this product are excellent. This product is great. I have used it everyday. It is easy to clean ,works excellent and look beautiful. March 10, 2014

    Answer: 
    Thank you for your question on the model QS236WW range hood. At the present time, the only bulbs we can recommend are the bulbs listed in the installation instructions. The installation instructions state: “Install (2) PAR20, 50W Maximum Halogen Bulbs or (2) R16, 40 W Maximum Incandescent Bulbs.”

    Answer: 
    Thank you for your question on the model QS230WW range hood. The QS230WW range hood requires the use of either 3-1/4” x 10” rectangular or 7” round duct work. The range hood can handle up to 32 feet of straight duct work without losing CFM. You need to reduce that distance by 7 feet for every elbow installed.

    Clicking sound won't stop

     on QS236SS
    Hello,

    Ever since it was installed, I hear a clicking sound.

    My lightbulbs were quite tight so I had to remove the bottom cover to change the bulbs. I noticed that when the bottom cover is not in place, there is no clicking noise. As soon as I put the bottom cover back, the noise comes back.

    I could not find what would be the cause, except that it's related to the bottom.

    Has anyone experienced this? Perhaps Broan has a fix?

    Thanks!

    Answer: 
    Gabriel,

    I would recommend placing a thin strip of weather strip foam or 3M double sided tape on the sides and lower interface (toward wall side of lights) to quiet the clicking, which was intermittent metal to metal contact in my case. One good test is to try placing light pressure on different locations while the noise is presenting, this will inform where to locate your damping material.

    Good luck.

    Answers

    Answer: 
    Thank you for your question on the model QS236WW range hood. The range hood is operating as designed. There will be some air blowing down through the light holes and small holes at the bottom front of the range hood to help keep the bulbs cooled down and to create an air curtain to help keep smoke and odors underneath the hood so they can be vented. Please contact the Technical Service Department at 800-637-1453 for further assistance.
