  • QP230BC is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 24.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Installation was tricky, but works well It took 2 of us over 2 hours to install. If your cabinets have a lip at the bottom, you have to add some wood pieces. It was ridiculously hard to attach the power cord, and definitely do it BEFORE hanging the hood, instead of after as the instructions say. It doesn't say HOW you're supposed to punch out the vent hole. It was also somewhat challenging to align the vent connector in the predrilled holes. Now that it's installed, it works fine

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Broan Range Hood-Stainless Steel I purchased this about a month or so ago. It looks great and functions well. The only thing I would change would be the heat that the lights give off. When they are on it is very warm.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Helpful guidance All questions during ordering were answered fully - no surprises. When asking for a black hood instead of a white vent hood, the change was quickly handled. delivery was as promised and the new hood was easily installed following the clear instructions. The lighting is perfect and the fan noise soft. On the low speed setting it can barely be heard, and then only when standing close. The screens are easily removed for cleaning and easy to reinstall.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful, works great, eay to install We bought this to replace an over-the-stove microwave that died. We were able to purchase and install a plug so we could use the same electrical outlet (instead of hard wiring the hood). That was easy and straight-forward. We've been using the hood for over a month now and just love it - great lighting, fan reaches most of the cooking area, fan is not too noisy (it's a fan after all...), and it looks so nice. Fit perfectly into the spot where the microwave was. My husband installed this alone...

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Much more powerfull and not any louder the the Broan it replaced. Bought this when we replaced our appliances and needed something that would recirculate since I couldn't install ducting. It's much more powerful than the Broan that came with the house. Easy to install and arrived quickly in good condition. It does show fingerprints much easier than our appliances...just need to teach the kids there's no reason to touch it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Totally Pleased We shopped at a big box store. The look there led us to Broan products online not available in the store. We read multiple pro and con reviews. We narrowed our search based on great lighting and adequate CFM and low sones. Who really needs a clock, delayed start, nightlight, mega CFM, etc. etc? The Broan QP230 caught our eye. The pro reviews were encouraging. The con reviews seemed trivial or even uninformed. We were delighted with the shipping time and tracking features. We are totally pleased with the product... it has a great look, superb lighting, plenty of exhausting power, and low noise. It is super easy to clean. There are no negatives or regrets here. A happy wife is a good wife! The installation was relatively easy for an experienced DIY husband. In the end we paid less online for a great Broan product than we would have paid for a lower quality Broan product at the big box store. This purchase was a win win!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very powerful suction I bought this range hood just over a month ago and am very please with it. I needed a hood with a higher CFM than what I had and this Broan hood exceeded my expectations. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

  • Can the advanced heat sentry be turned of or disabled without affecting the operation of the hood?

    Asked by: M
    Thank you for your question on the model QP230BC range hood. The Heat Sentry feature is designed to protect the internal components of the hood from over-heating and save you money from having to replace parts. It cannot be disabled. You should you use your range hood every time you use the cook top. If you have further questions, please contact our Technical Support Department directly at 800-637-1453.

    how to change light bulb? and can filter be put in dishwasher?

    Asked by: mary
    Thank you for your question on the model QP230BC range hood. The QP230BC range hood uses light bulbs with a GU10 base. You will need to push in on the bulbs and twist counterclockwise approximately ½ - ¾ of an inch. The bulb should then drop out. The aluminum mesh grease filters can be washed in a sink of dishwashing liquid and water or in the dishwasher. If you have a charcoal filter (used in non-ducted installations) it cannot be cleaned and would need to be replaced periodically.

    ducted installation

    What additional parts are needed for a ducted installation with vertical discharge going through the ceiling? Does Broan sell a complete kit, and/or do you recommend one in particular?
    Asked by: liviu
    Thank you for your question on the model QP230BC range hood. The QP230BC can be ducted vertically using either 3¼" x 10" rectangular duct or 7" round duct. The range hood comes with a gravity fed back draft damper/duct connector for the rectangular duct work. If you are using the 7” round duct, you should purchase an in-line damper. You also need to purchase the duct work and an externally mounted roof or wall cap. We would recommend getting one with a built-in damper. Please contact the Technical Service Department at 800-637-1453 if you need further assistance.

    What is the maximum duct length you can use with this fan? Can an in line booster be used?

    Asked by: SHO
    Thank you for your question on the model QP230BC range hood. The QP230BC requires the use of either 3-1/4” x 10” rectangular or 7” round duct work. You can run the duct work up to 13 feet straight, reducing that distance by 6 feet for every elbow installed. A booster fan cannot be used with this range hood. Please contact the Technical Service Department at 800-637-1453 if you need further assistance.

    Can LED bulbs be used on this model?

    We purchased LED and when we turn the lights off they stay on with a night light effect.
    Asked by: LC
    Thank you for your question on the QP230BC range hood. We recommend that you use only the type of bulb recommended for your range hood. Using a replacement LED bulb will not void the warranty; however we cannot guarantee the operation or life of the LED bulbs. Due to higher heat generated by cooking, the lifespan of the bulb could be greatly shortened. Improper controls for the LED bulb can also cause flickering on low light settings or even no light at all. Sometimes the LED replacement may not shut off, staying on at a very low level even when the light switch is off.
