    Rated 3 out of 5 by It works well but... Just ordered our third vent. It works well and installs easy enough but after a few years( after monthly cleaning) the grease drips off the motor. Hard to keep clean. Also after 2 years it starts to squeak. So here we are ordering number three. I think were going to see if we can find something else that will fit into our space that's more easy to maintain and hopefully will last longer. Its getting old popping the canopy off and reinstalling. As always the devil is in the details. It does work well just has a short "shelf life" . November 20, 2014
    Rated 4 out of 5 by Good Value I chose this system over others that were much more expensive. Air flow is very good and sound levels are acceptable. The rated light wattage was not very high, but by substituting CFL lights, I could stay within the wattage limitations and increase the light output. We've had this in operation for two months now and we are very satisfied. September 5, 2014
    Rated 5 out of 5 by This product has great features. We haven't had this product very long but so far we are enjoying it. September 7, 2014
    Rated 4 out of 5 by This product does an overall good job. Cons 1.) The Plastic attachment clips on the filter housing seem cheap. I am concerned that after years of heat and cool from being used they may break and will not allow me to reinstall the filter after cleaning. 2.) From and ergonomically standpoint the on and off switch’s for both the fan and light are difficult to find. 3.) Very difficult to install the filter housing. I actually had the filter housing fall onto the stovetop while in use. Pros 1.) Seams to pull all of the heat and condensation from above the stovetop. 2.) Lights are easy to change out when they go out. 3.) The lighting is sufficient and located correctly. March 17, 2014
    Rated 5 out of 5 by Finally a real exhaust fan This works great! Finally an exhaust that does not just blow the steam around. You can even see it sucking the steam toward it. Mine has an angled duct going outside and still works great. It was installed in a new construction home so I cannot speak to ease of installation but I did not hear any complaints from builder that it was a problem. March 12, 2014
    Rated 5 out of 5 by Very efficient product First working ventilation system I ever had. Love performance and clean quiet look March 11, 2014
    Rated 5 out of 5 by Great product This product's performance is superior to others I have used and is a very good value. March 10, 2014
    Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent lighting and filter The lighting is great over the stove. It is extremely easy to remove the plate to change the filter and light bulbs. If I could improve anything, it would be to have a quieter fan. March 10, 2014

    Will the PM390 handle a 36" gas cooktop at 55K BTUs safely?

     on PM390
    I am looking to put a hood vent over a gas cooktop. I assume 36" requires 300CFM, but I have also seen info on this site that leads me to think a PM390 may not meet the needs. I intend to vent above the unit into the kitchen, and build a cabinet to hide this unit. I am assuming I need the kit to help house this.

    Answer: 
    Thank you for your question on the model PM390 kitchen exhaust system power unit. You do need some sort of custom hood to install the PM390. The PM390 is listed as having 390 CFM. The requirements for a kitchen exhaust fan would be 1 CFM for every 100 BTU. In your case you would want something with a minimum of 550 CFM.

    Ducting question

    Customer avatar
    by
    Eric
    CA
     on PM390
    I'm replacing my current hood with a custom. The previous owner installed 6inch flexible ducting going the whole way to the outside, but it's only about 8 feet with a 90 degree at the top of the hood and another 90 degree to the outside. I'm assuming the ridges in the flexible ducting can slow airflow somewhat. It would be very difficult to replace the flex ducting with rigid. How much of a difference would the flex make in this situation? Would it significantly reduce CFM or stress the blower?

    Answer: 
    Thank you for your question on the model PM390 range hood insert. Using six inch rigid duct work you can run the duct work less than 10 feet straight without loss of CFM. Using flexible duct work and having two elbows in the line could reduce the CFM to ½ or less than the specified rate. It would definitely place more stress on the motor, reduce the life of the motor and create more noise. Please contact the Technical Service Department at 800-637-1453 for further assistance.

    Answer: 
    Thank you for your question on the model PM390 kitchen exhaust system power module. For best capture of cooking impurities, the bottom of the hood should be a minimum of 24" and a maximum of 30" above the cooking surface.

    How do you remove the mesh filter on the PM250?

    It appears that four screws must be removed from the cover, which also holds the light cover, in order to remove the mesh filter. Is this correct?

    Answer: 
    Thank you for your question on the model PM250 kitchen exhaust power module. To remove the grease filter you need to remove the four screws from the cover and take off the metal grid. You then need to take off the metal wires holding the filters in place.
