This smart hood is equipped with a delay-off feature and a filter change indicator to improve ventilation effectiveness. 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

  • Rated 4.2 out of 5 by 26 reviewers.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by Good features, easy installation and instructions. This is the second Broan hood we have owned. The only reason we purchased this new one is because we changed from white to stainless steel appliances. The old unit was 10 years old and still working good and it got used a lot. The new one has the turbo speed, the old one did not. The damper is located eight feet up at the roof level on the roof jack and at low speed, opens the damper with no problem. The only thing missing, which Broan does not have with this series is a night light. No big deal, you can buy one that plugs into a receptacle at Wally-world for next to nothing. June 8, 2014
    Rated 5 out of 5 by Awesome Product! This product is awesome! Not only does it look elegant, but the features are wonderful. Operation is simple. Just a one finger touch on the control panel turns everything on, from the exhaust fan, to the dual lights. There are three exhaust removal levels, plus a boost level, for those extreme situations. The dual lighting has three settings - low, medium, and high. This feature allows great brightness for cooking, while the low setting allows for a cozy ambiance. The bottom of this exhaust hood is completely closed off, unlike some other models. This sleek-looking feature makes for easy clean-up. The filters, two of them, are located on the bottom as well. They easily pop in and out when cleaning is necessary. Don’t worry; an indicator light tells you when to clean them! I believe this product would be a great addition to any household kitchen.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by We are not happy with this product. There are too many gaps in the product, therefore it has poor ventilation. We get a lot of grease being blown where it shouldn't be. We realize that this unit is recommended for outside ventilation, but it also is advertised for inside ventilation with the recommended filters being used and doing their job. March 10, 2014
    Rated 4 out of 5 by This product is good value . Installation was a little confusing at first since I wanted to vent it internally. The options and performance are great except that when venting indoors , the air flow is too restricted. It is quiet and effective if vented outdoors. March 10, 2014
    Rated 5 out of 5 by Great exhaust fan This is a very attractive exhaust fan as well as very effective. It has great lighting and a powerful fan. I highly recommend. March 10, 2014
    Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent Product We replaced our unit that came with the new Home with this model. So far 3 years later, it is working great - we cook with heavy spices and this product helps us keep the odors from being spread into our home. March 10, 2014
    Rated 5 out of 5 by looks good, great features My only complaint is the instructions do not clearly state the type and size of venting needed when using the highest settings; because of this, grease builds up on the screens and drips onto the stove. March 11, 2014
    Rated 4 out of 5 by Works I like that it's powerful. But I do notice that the suction works on the left side more than the right side. When I was cleaning the filters, there was a lot of grease in the left filter (which is a great thing!), but practically none in the right. March 10, 2014

    How do I fit QS3 model with 7" duct?

     on QS330SS
    The installation brochure didn't seem to include how to fit a 7" duct. For example, for other models, there is a 7" duct plate I can use to fit.

    Can you clarify if it's possible to fit QS3 model with an existing 7" duct?

    Thanks.

    Answer: 
    Thank you for your question on the model QS3 series range hood. The QS3 comes with a 7” round duct plate that would be installed on top of the hood after the rectangular and semi-circular knockouts are removed. The instructions are on page 4, step 8 under “Prepare The Hood”.

    I just moved and my Allure vent hood looks like the picture of QS330BL, but I cannot see a model number to be sure. Where do I find the model number? I would like to download the owners manual. Thank you. PS Unbelievable that you allow people to upload photos but you will not accept mine because they are 640 x 480.

    Answer: 
    Thank you for your question on the model QS330BL range hood. There is a data plate underneath the range hood, usually on the left hand side. You will need to remove the filters and possibly the bottom cover to see it. Please contact the Technical Service Department at 800-637-1453 for further assistance.

    Answer: 
    Just touch the button. Although when my light comes on, I always rinse my filters off with very hot water, tap them dry, put them back in, and the light stays off.

    How to stop the loud rattling noise made by the flapping door on the vent?

    I have a new QS330WW. I've had the earlier version of this hood for 12 years and have always loved it. On the new one, however, when the fan is operating the flapping door on the vent makes a very annoying tinny rattling noise. How can I stop this? The fan is top ducted to the outside by the 3-1/2" x 10" duct. . Thank you.

    Answer: 
    Thank you for your question on the model QS330WW range hood. When the fan is running and you are getting a rattling noise from the back draft damper, the problem is normally some sort of obstruction in the duct work or installation problem. Please contact the Technical Service Department at 800-637-1453 for further assistance.

    Why is some bulbs dim while others are bright

    Customer avatar
    by
    Baffled
    Hawaii, USA
     on QS336SS
    I originally used the recommended halogen bulbs. After a couple of years, they had to be replaced. The right side light would not work with the replacement halogen bulb but worked with the recommended incandescent bulb. Recently, I replaced both bulbs with cfl bulbs. Initially it worked OK. It stared off dim and came brighter after a period of time. Now, the bulbs remain dim and does not get bright. When bulb is put on a lamp, the bulb gets bright. I tried a coil type cfl bulb and it gets bright. What goes?

    Answers

    Answer: 
    Thank you for your question on the model QS336SS range hood. The only bulbs recommended for the QS336SS range hood are (2) PAR20, 50 watt maximum halogen bulbs or (2) R16 40 watt maximum incandescent bulbs. We do not recommend using CFL bulbs in the hood. Some manufacturers are making the bulbs with a shorter neck and the base of the bulb will not reach the bottom of the socket. You may want to try a different manufacturer of bulb. Please contact the Technical Service Department at 800-637-1453 for further assistance.
