    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Looks great, works well. Like it a lot. This hood replaced another 15 yr old Braun which was not vented to outside. New hood looks great, works well and is quieter than old hood. I expect this hood to last as long s the old hood.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Looks good, wife loves it Wife loves the look of the enclosed bottom rather than an open hood. Haven't had a real smokey event to test the smoke removal but it appears to work well. Would have given it 5 stars but it arrived missing a clip that holds the fan blade in place, and it had a small dent right under the logo that I didn't see until after it was installed because it was under the blue tape protecting the finish. Not bad enough to want to take it down and return it however. Called customer service and got an actual person who mailed out the missing clip right away.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great For a first time home owners it was easy to install and works great. I hardly even have to turn it on the high setting when I use it, and it's quiet. We also bought the led bulbs for it so it's not hot and uses less energy, we always leave the lights on

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good product for the price Nice design, does it job, could have been a bit quieter, (on the high speed) but not that noise at all, and with TV working, you can not really hear it. We also bought the charcoal filters. A handyman installed it, as a part of kitchen renovation project, but it was a very fast and easy installation. BTW, bulbs are not included. Also, check the depth of the cabinets. We had to pull the hood to the front, and have a 5" gap between the hood and the wall. We are fine with this, but just take a note. Overall, happy.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from This product is easy to clean when that becomes necessary. This hood vent was easy to install after removing the original one. I was pleased to find all the necessary items enclosed to install it.. Also the hood vent is very quiet running. Very pleased with the product.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Perfect for my needs This range hood is sleekly designed. It's not the most powerful or quietest you can find, but it's perfect for my needs. I don't make a lot of smoky or smelly foods, so mostly needed this for great over-stove lighting, which it delivers. I have this installed ventless and it still does a good job of removing what little smoke and odor my cooking produces. A very nice unit for the price.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from awesome I've had this for about 2 years now and its been great. I hardwired the lights on this unit with my other under cabinet LED lights and they look perfect. Overall the range hood looks and works great. Low and high fan settings work perfect as you would expect. No more cooking smoke. Installation was easy.

  • Where are the lights located on this device? Are they towards the front, or are they positioned in the middle?

    Asked by: Kevin
    There are four lights - two on the left side and two on the right. They're located 3-4" in from the edges.

    What are the exact dimensions of this product?

    I have less than 31 inches of free space between the wall and the cabinet on my kitchen. Some websites say it is around 32 or 33 inches and I'm afraid it will not fit. Thanks.

    I just installed the qml30ss this morning. It is 30 inches exactly

    Air blowing out vent on top of hood

    Is there suppose to be air coming out of the vents on the top front side when the fan is on and it is installed ducted?
    Asked by: Kirk
    Thank you for your question on the Broan QML Range Hood. It is normal to have a slight amount of air coming out of the air vents when set up in a ducted application. If there is a great amount of air coming out of the vents check to see if the baffle plate was positioned for the ducted application. If you have questions please contact Technical Support at 800-637-1453.

    fan light flashes

    exhaust fan light keep flashing on and off every 5 seconds. Lost the information that came with the hood. My hood has a fan and light push censor on front of hood.
    Asked by: Larry
    Thank you for your question on the QML30BL range hood. The QML series does not offer push buttons on the front of the hood. You can check your model number by looking up, underneath the hood on a specification label. Once you have the correct model/series number, please contact Technical Support for more assistance at 800-637-1453.

    how do you stop cold air from coming thru fan when not in use

    Asked by: nelson
    Thank you for your question on the model QML30BL range hood. There should be a back draft damper installed in the duct work or at the roof or wall cap where the duct work exits the house. It is also recommended that the duct work be insulated.
