  • The QS3 Range Hood is over 50% quieter than the average hood and delivers brilliant halogen lighting to your cook top. 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
    • High-contrast, black controls stand out for ease of use

    • Four-speed, soft-touch controls with LED indicators give you convenient command of Normal, Mid, High and Boost fan speeds. Use the quiet, Normal, setting for average cooking conditions and switch to Mid, High or Boost 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)
    • Filter Change Indicator light lets you know when it is time to clean your grease filters
    • Delay-off setting allows the blower to operate for ten minutes then stops automatically. It will allow extra blower time after you leave the cook top to ensure complete ventilation
    • 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

  • Rated 4.3 out of 5 by 39 reviewers.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by Good value, excellent lighting I have used this fan to remove smoke when roasting coffee. It does a good job, but probably wasn't designed for that much smoke. Still, I have never had smoke alarm go off. February 8, 2015
    Rated 4 out of 5 by Good Product This an attractive unit with four fan levels. Dimmable lights are a nice touch. Filters are easy to clean. Soft touch buttons are sometimes tricky to use, but they keep the profile lean and are easy to clean. February 7, 2015
    Rated 5 out of 5 by Simple nice looking piece Very easy to install. Looks very good with stove and cabinets. February 6, 2015
    Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent Product. I've had this Range Hood for several years and have had any problems with it whatsoever. The noise level at low speed is very quite and it automatically speeds up as needed. Great product. February 6, 2015
    Rated 5 out of 5 by A great hood! It works very well as a hood and the lighting is great too. I like the different levels for the light. February 6, 2015
    Rated 4 out of 5 by Good Product My only concern was the fact that when the fan was on high speed, it did not take the smoke out fast enough, and the smoke alarms go moff quite frequently. February 6, 2015
    Rated 3 out of 5 by Effective exhaust, moderately difficult installation, below average construction. My installation was a bit difficult due to the infrastructure around the fan did not provide adequate mounting points and needed to be shimmed.When finished the installation looked good and fit well in the space where the old one was. I installed it to exhaust the air outside. I had to seal off some of the exhaust pathway inside the fan to prevent the air from going where it should not. Some of the air is still blowing back out into the kitchen because the screws holding the sheet metal around the lights do not tighten in their holes. Therefore there is a gap through which air leaks back.I used all the parts which came with the unit. The holes and screws are not a match. February 6, 2015
    Rated 4 out of 5 by Looks and works great The removeable filters are easy to install and replace. February 6, 2015

    The duct will need to vent vertically about 4'-0" and then turn 90 degrees and travel 20'-0" to reach the outside wall to duct vent out. If the QS330SS is not appropriate, which model would be ?

    Answer: 
    Thank you for your question on the model QS330SS range hood. The boost mode of the QS330SS is rated at 430 CFM and using seven inch duct work you can run up to 16 feet of straight duct work without losing any CFM. Any elbows in the run would reduce that distance by seven feet per elbow. Please contact the Technical Service Department at 800-637-1453 for further assistance.

    Thank you for your question on the model QS330SS range hood. There are tabs on the filter. Grasp the tab and push the filter towards the back of the hood and pull straight down.

    The low level light is still too bright. Can this dimmer be adjusted for a lower light level?

    Answer: 
    Thank you for your question on the model QS330SS range hood. Using the 3-1/4” x 10” rectangular or the 7” round duct will both give you the same performance and sound levels.
