  • 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
    • 30” width to fit with like-size, standard 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 BPSF30, sold separately)
    • Clean SenseTM charcoal filters (BPSF30, 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, BPSF30, sold separately

    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
    Rated 5 out of 5 by This unit is much better than my old one I like the light push button controls I like the fan push button controls And that it STAINLESS STEEL March 10, 2014
    Rated 2 out of 5 by hard to install and doesn't remove cooking smoke well It was hard to connect the vent to my roof vent. Does not remove cooking smoke well. Fan is noisy. March 10, 2014
    Rated 2 out of 5 by product works good product sticks out farther than our old broan keep hitting my flipping head on it. March 10, 2014
    Rated 5 out of 5 by works great Ours is not a vented unit but it looks and works great. Very pleased with the ease of installation. March 10, 2014
    Rated 4 out of 5 by This exhaust fan is very quiet and an excellent value We like the three position dimmer switch for the lights, but they could be brighter and easier to install. We especially like the quietness of the exhaust fan, but it was difficult to install because the flange on the vent is not wide enough to make a tight seal. The result is that a lot of the exhausted air leaks back into our kitchen. We tried sealing it with tape, but there is no room to completely cover the leaky area with tape. This leak is due to a design flaw in the exhaust system. March 10, 2014

    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.

    Our old one did not have the cuts/vent slots on the top of the unit that you can see from the front. Is it possible to get one without these slots in the top? Thanks,

    whole assembly up into the hood where it is dangling freely even further up in the hood. How do I take apart the hood in order to gain access to the assembly to replace? I have removed the three screws in front and have taken the filters out but it appears that the hood is one solid piece?

    Answer: 
    Mick,
    Need to get in contact with Broan about this...I had the same problem and they sent me a new lighting assembly that had much stronger clips to hold it in place. The size of the bulb makes a big difference also. The only thing that you can do at this stage is take off the front (remove 5 screws and take lighting unit out (make sure you unplug the connector as the wires are bare on back of the lights. Replace both bulbs and re-screw the front plate back up into the unit. Good Luck.
