  • QP136SS is rated 3.9 out of 5 by 80.
    Rated 2 out of 5 by from ROCKER SWITCHES BAD We have had this for 5yrs and both rocker switches have broke. I can not find a replacement either. The fan works ok I didn't want to buy another one, but it looks like I will have to. It does just ok removing smoke and smell.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Looks good, works great! Bought this range hood for a kitchen remodel. The size and color fit well with the over-all look of the kitchen. Functionality is excellent for the application. Satisfied!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Bought a cheap one to replace an expensive one that could not be repaired I am not sure I can do this review justice as I bought this QP136SS to replace a really expensive Broan Hood that could not be repaired. I called several times and bought a couple of circuit boards but there were no repairs centers within 300 miles of me. So I bought a 300 dollar unit to replace a 3000.00 unit that was 7 years old and worthless

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product Very quiet on low setting, not that noisy on high setting. Only negative is that LED light bulbs don't fit as well has halogen bulbs.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from This fan is great This is my first ever over stove fan vented to the outside and I love it. It performs very well, removing smoke, odor and heat from cooking on our gas stove. The light also works very well, providing excellent lighting for cooking. All in all an excellent addition to our new kitchen.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Sleek & attractive Great looking range hood we bought to replace a 16 year old still working unit. The Broan QP130WW has clean cut lines & looks very stylish. Ours is vented to the outside. There are 2 speeds for the fan, which is quite quiet even on high speed, as well as having a very good suction. This unit has 4 lights, which must use halogen bulbs, which throw out quite a bit of heat, & the bulbs themselves get very hot. (We tried the corresponding LED, however, when on low beam, the lights blinked like strobe lights. On high it seemed fine & really nice & bright, & I was fine to use only the bright setting, but my husband was not. Broan advised they are working toward the use of LEDs.) A friend who is a certified electrician & my husband installed it. After purchasing our 3rd set of bulbs: halogen, LED & back to halogen, we now still have to take off the top sides & adjust the bulbs, as they are not flush. If not for the bulbs/lighting, I'd probably have given it a 5 star rating.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Fan works efficiently,but... Well, after reading all these reviews, I see, that I am not alone, again, with the switches. Although, I have owned my fan for almost three years, I still believe, that only getting 3 years from the switch is horrible. the fan works on low, but all of a sudden, it won't move to high, faulty switch I suppose. So if I purchase a new switch for $20, and that's not the problem, will my money be refunded?

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Fan Switch Failed Nice looking hood and relatively easy to install (with two people). The hood worked well for a little over a year, but then fan switch started acting up. Now if the fan is switched on it is very difficult to get the rocker switch to turn the fan back off. Other reviews indicated similar issues with the fan & light rocker switches. It is fairly expensive to buy replacement switches for this unit. If the switches were extensively used or in a location where physical abuse would occur, I could understand the failures, but this appears to be just due to sub-standard components being used. Very dissappointing!

  • Can the QP130 be installed non-ducted? Do I need to order a recirculating kit or different filters?

    Asked by: kitchen witch
    Yes, it can be installed in a non-ducted fashion. The design has a small sheet metal strip in the front that slides to a side (need to remove a screw or two) and allows the fan to vent back into the room. Please do not remove any knock out sheet metal strips on the main unit....other than the one you require for your electrical connection.

    The light switch on my Evolution 1, QP 130, QP 136 series range hood has failed. I plan to do the replacement myself. How do I do it?

    I plan to replace my defective light switch with the Broan replacement part that I have ordered through my dealer. How to I remove the original switch. I have the cover plate on the back side removed and have access to the switch, but I can't see if it is pressed on or if it has a screw and nut assembly. Please help and also give any other information on this task that you can. Thanks

    Peel off the label on the front of the switch and you'll see the mounting screws.
