    Rated 5 out of 5 by Highlight of Kitchen Remodel We were on a tight budget for our kitchen remodel but I knew that one of the first things that would be seen, walking into the kitchen, would be the vent. So this was the most expensive appliance I bought for the kitchen. I wanted something that would catch the eye and this Broan Vent does the job. It's beautiful. Easy to clean the stainless steel and the filters are easy to remove. I wash them in the sink but understand they can also be put into the dishwasher. To me the lighting could be brighter, but it's sufficient. Anyway I love it and would recommend it my friends. September 5, 2014
    Rated 4 out of 5 by Great hood for the money The hood does a great job of removing smoke and odors. It looks very nice and is relatively easy to clean. I only have two gripes 1) the controls are hard to find without craning your head under the hood to find them 2) the knobs wear out and break relatively easily. I've had this for three years and have had to replace both knobs every year. March 11, 2014

    How do you make the parts fit?

    The support frame and support frame bracket are the same exact size. How are you supposed to get the support frame to slide into the support frame bracket?

    Answer: 
    Thank you for your question on the model E5490SS range hood. The support frame should slide inside the outside flanges of the support bracket, so they can be screwed together. Please contact the Technical Service Department at 800-637-1453 for assistance.

    Answer: 
    I know what the parts are supposed to do and how they are supposed to fit together. Unfortunately that is impossible since both parts are exactly the same size. There is NO clearance to allow the support frame to fit inside the support bracket.

    Answer: 
    I know our contractor had to do some major adjustments on the support frame. We have 9' ceilings and the frame was made to be installed in a room with 10' ceilings. I only know that they had to cut off at least a foot on the bottom of the support frame. As for sliding one frame into the other, we didn't have a problem.

    I want to install your vented island hood and need to know if it can be installed without major ceiling damage. It is between floors but I have a way to run vent for the product. Thanks

    Answer: 
    Thank you for your question on the model E5490SS range hood. If you are installing this range hood to a ceiling that does not have an attic or crawl space above, you would need to tear out more ceiling than would normally be necessary and patch the ceiling after the installation is done. There is support framing that would need to be done in the ceiling before installation.

    Duct Location Over Cooktop

    When installing, do you center the 6" duct at the centerline of an "X" made by lines running from burner to burner on the cooktop? If not, then how does one locate the duct?
