    Rated 5 out of 5 by This was the best kitchen buy we ever made! We remodeled our kitchen and that is the only reliable installation that was made. I love it! I love the style, quietness of the motor, the exhaust, the brightness of the lights. I just absolutely love it and would recommend it for anyone looking to change their kitchen. And.....it's pretty, too! February 6, 2015
    Rated 4 out of 5 by A great product for the price I bought this hood, because it met all my requirements: chimney style, stainless steel, not too loud, strong ventilation, and not over $1,000 which similar products are often priced. It took my HVAC guy a good half day to create a vent leading to outside. If you already have that feature in your kitchen, then the installation of the hood by at least a professional should be quite straight forward. February 6, 2015
    Rated 5 out of 5 by Good style and function. I am very pleased with this range hood. It fits my kitchen perfectly. A range hood that attaches to upper kitchen cabinets is nothing but a waste of space. But there was a few rivets that cam undone upon arrival. Could be from shipping? February 6, 2015
    Rated 5 out of 5 by Overall an excellent choice for our remodeled kitchen Didn't install it myself, so that was real easy (have your contractor do the install). Does a wonderful job of smoke and odor removal under normal circumstances. If you flambe (on purpose or inadvertently) you can overwhelm the unit and still get the smoke detector to have a fit. Lighting is great. Cleaning the filter is easy; it can be rinsed in the sink with hot water. The stainless steel and the shape on the wall really accents that wall in the kitchen. March 15, 2014
    Rated 5 out of 5 by My favorite hoodie! Some people like their sweatshirt hoodie. Broan makes mine. March 11, 2014
    Rated 5 out of 5 by Love this range hood. I love the look of this range hood and it works great. I would recommend it to everyone looking for a new one. March 10, 2014
    Rated 5 out of 5 by Very impressive! I wasnt sure about this brand and i was told by a sale representative that this product is the best of all. I decided to buy it at the same time i was worried what if that happens something wrong. After almost one year, i love this due to beautiful design and running so very well which it has no problem even not a bit. March 10, 2014
    Rated 4 out of 5 by A classic look, powerful fan & bright lighting--non-ducted installation tricky We needed a white hood to match our white range and there was no upper cabinet on which to mount an over-the-range microwave; so this fit the bill perfectly. The installation instructions looked clear enough until it came time to mount the hood on the wall. We then found that the location of the plug-in that was specified turned out to be precisely behind the plenum which, once plugged in, would hold the chimney and fan unit off the wall--not good. Once we solved that problem and got it up, it has clean lines and looks lovely; performs well with a powerful fan and excellent lighting. July 16, 2013

    Answer: 
    Thank you for your question on the model RM503004 range hood. To change the bulbs you first remove the screw securing the light fitting. You then pull down the lens to remove. You will need to replace with light bulbs with 120 volt, 40 watt maximum, E12, Type B or Type T8 bulbs. The installation instructions are available for download on our web site or you can contact the Technical Service Department at 800-637-1453 for further assistance.

    Answer: 
    Thank you for your question on the model RM503004 range hood. This range hood is equipped with a cord having a grounding wire with a grounding plug. The plug must be plugged into an outlet that is properly installed and grounded. We do not recommend or suggest hard wiring this unit to your house electrical supply.

    Venting

    For venting this unit, do you have to mount the hood to the ceiling height and vent into the ceiling then outside, or can you mount it to the ceiling height and vent it directly outside through the wall?

    Answer: 
    Thank you for your question on the model RM503001 range hood. The venting comes directly out of the top of the hood, but you can install an elbow and direct it out a wall. Please check out the installation instructions on our web site for installation options.
