    Rated 3 out of 5 by this product has not good we use it for only 8 months the blower switch is broken! July 24, 2015
    Rated 3 out of 5 by broken light swtich My biggest complaint is the light switch lasted just over a year. Replacing it will cost me $19.82 plus extra for shipping. The switch is made with cheap plastic and has an awful design of breaking in another year which can become costly over the years! I use the switches on a daily basis, they should be made more sturdy to last longer!! July 27, 2015
    Rated 3 out of 5 by Nice hood, but bulbs last longer than the switches This is a nice, functional hood, except that is has flimsy plastic switches which fail after a few years. We use both the lights and fans on a daily basis. After three years, the halogen bulbs are still going strong, but the switches are failing and pretty soon they will be unusable. It looks like this is a known issue and many others have complained about the poor quality switches. July 24, 2015
    Rated 5 out of 5 by Great product We purchased the hood to replace an old one. It is a very good product and we will be putting another one in at our new construction. Great at drawing smoke and odor. The lights are very good too. Very pleased with this product. Thanks. July 17, 2015
    Rated 5 out of 5 by Powerful enough to handle all the cooking we do and quiet enough not to be a nusance. We cook almost every evening and at least 2 meals on Saturday and Sunday. The 2 speeds are more than adequate to remove heat and odors. The 2 level light allow us to use the lower level and not add the heat of the high level brightness. Cleaning the filters is a breeze. We put them in the dishwasher and forget about them till the cycle is finished. They always come out like new. We have not had any problems. Great product. July 16, 2015
    Rated 4 out of 5 by Good range hood The big reason I bought it is that the fan is quiet and the lighting is good. The only thing I didn't like was the hood lamps were hard to change. July 16, 2015
    Rated 1 out of 5 by This is a defective product-the switch repeatedly breaks! As many others have commented, I too have have problems with the switch. It is a cheap thin plastic that easily breaks. I am on my third one in two years. It is hard to replace and costs $20. Broan should fix this problem with a permanent situation. Light bulbs are also an issue. Hard to install, very diificult to replace. Avoid this product!! June 11, 2015
    Rated 3 out of 5 by one more chance Product works well, until the cheap plastic switch breaks. I have replaced the poor quality switches two times, and when this one breaks, it will be with another brand to replace the complete hood. I am very disappointed in this because Broan has always meant quality. Would recommend this product if the switches were of better construction, quality. June 9, 2015

    Answer: 
    Thank you for your question on the QP130SS range hood. This hood has a flat area of 13 1/2". You will be able to install this under a 15" cabinet and will need to make sure the vents are exposed for a non-ducted installation. Please contact Technical Support directly for more assistance at 800-637-1453. Thank you.

    Both switches are now broken and I ordered the new part. It is not clear how to remove the old assembly. I hope the new part has been engineered so that the plastic parts that are screwed into the panel don't break so easily. thank you

    Answer: 
    Thank you for your question on the model QP130SS range hood. To change out the switch assembly you would first peel the nameplate off of the hood to access the mounting hardware. The switch assembly comes with a new nameplate. Please contact the Technical Service Department at 800-637-1453 if you need further assistance.

    Answer: 
    Thank you for your question on the model QP136SS range hood. The QP136SS is a convertible range hood and can be installed with 3-1/4" x 10" rectangular duct work, 7" round duct work or non-ducted. When installed non-ducted you need to purchase the non-duct charcoal filters.

    Answer: 
    Thank you for your question on the model QP136SS range hood. Under normal conditions the bulb should fit pretty much flush, but there is no standard length for the necks of the bulbs. The QP136SS does have an option of changing the depth of the bulb sockets so the bulbs fit flush. The adjustment is shown in the installation instructions. The installation instructions are available for download from our web site.
