  • 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 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.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by Great function and great looks We bought this when we remodeled our kitchen. Vented it outside and it works great. We love the auto heat build up feature, if you get to much heat it will raise the fan speed until it cools down and then go back to your original setting. The auto off timer too. We have had many compliments of how it looks in our new kitchen. No regrets at all!! June 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 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 I love the bright lights. I really like the feature where the fan turns on automatically and then turns itself off when the stove cools off. The fan is easy to clean. I have had the Broan for 3 years and it still looks like new. the fan is very quiet. It was easy to install. My husband did not want to buy it. He thought it was too expensive, but now he loves the Broan, especially the bright lights. February 6, 2015
    Rated 3 out of 5 by lights do not turn off all the way, very disappointed why don 't the lights turn off ? ok ok ok ok ok , enough text or do you still need more February 6, 2015
    Rated 3 out of 5 by cuople of issue's We just mounted this unit a couple of days ago, so can't say about longevity yet. But, my biggest issue is one also mentioned by another review. The suction fan is mounted to the left, so 80% of the draw is from the left side of the stove. Most range's have the main burners on the front right, the farthest away from the fan. The fan should at least be on the right if not the center. We didn't realize this until I had it apart and prepared for installation, so thought we would hope for the best. It probably won't draw very well on the low fan setting from the right side burners. The only other issue is that they recommend Halogen lights, but we installed LED's. Halogens get very hot and LED's stay cold no matter how long they are on. They give off just as much light and will last many times longer. We like the looks and mostly quiet with 3 fan settings and 3 light settings. The buttons are hard to see though, as they are black with a black background as well. There are 3 little green led's above the fan button's that come on when you push the button, but you have to find the button first. But, there are no green LED's above the light buttons. Too much work to install and take down again, so we will see if we can get used to the faults. January 2, 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

    Qs230 - left light stays on

    Brookfield
     on QS230SS
    I put in a Qs230 hood, and it works well - but the left light will not turn off all the way, and stays on very dimly. I used GE 40 LED bulbs (which were the recommended brand/type. Is this supposed to happen, or is it possible that there is an issue with the installation?
    thanks

    I like the adjustable halogen lights on the 230 and I need a ductless hood, but would rather control the fan myself.

    Answer: 
    Thank you for your question on the model QS230BL range hood. If you are referring to the heat sentry as the automatic feature, the QS130BL does not have it, but the QS130BL has two levels of lighting instead of three. Please contact the Technical Service Department at 800-637-1453 if you need further assistance.

    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!!
