Rated 3 out of 5 by Want2BeAFanofThisFan Good Product Except.....
I have been very pleased with this product. It's a good product except like many other reviewers I owned this product for a little over a year when the light/fan switch assembly broke. I have ordered a new switch and nameplate sticker. I can only hope that since there have been so many occurrences of the switch breaking that Broan has redesigned it, maybe made or reinforced it with metal for better durability, so replacement doesn't become a annual custom.
I can not recommend this product if I have to replace this switch every year or two.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Hondo Instruction manual in box
The manual in the box states on page 5 that 4 halogen bulbs are included. They are not. This misinformation required a 38 mile round trip it get them and cost me $16.84 when it supposedly was included. Somewhat disappointed. Upon accessing this website, I learn you have corrected the online manual. Thank you for that.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Fred Poor switch design. Condensation in winter
We have had this fan in our new house for (2) years. The switch mechanism came loose in the first year but was usable. The mechanism totally yesterday. Upon disassembling I found the bracket holding in the switches to be very weak. Ordered the part just now and had to order a assembly including the switches for $20. The switch mounting bracket was the only part I needed. I am dissappointed I have to spend 20 bucks for parts that should not have broke in the first place. My wife is very upset.
The unit is not insulated well and drips condensation on the stove in the winter. I verified the check valve going outside does indeed operate and seals.

Rated 3 out of 5 by BradB Good basic range hood, except for cheap switch assembly
The fan switch assembly broke within the 1st year of seldom use. Fan is quiet on low, but still pretty loud on high

Rated 4 out of 5 by TLC45 This product has some ok features
The fans, high, low features are ok. The lightings great. Installation was a little tricky (back end was a little heavy), hard to level. Over all, it looks good, matches décor, Might buy this product again if install was easier.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Jonah Decent product for the price, except for the fan switch issue
As a number of others have reported, this model suffers from a design defect with the fan switch mounting bracket. Mine has broken twice now. Replacing the switch assembly is a fussy job that takes about an hour. I have requested a 2nd replacement, and I hope they have improved the design this time.
Other than this problem, the unit performs decently. I wish I had bought a different model that extends further over the range; smoke and fumes from the front burners don't get exhausted very effectively. On high speed, the fan is very loud.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Remodelman Long time Broan user
Bought this to replace a Broan we had for almost 20 years and thought we would get another Broan. It's OK but we should have bought a model with better controls/switches because we have had to replace the rocker switches twice because they broke. Still, we would buy another Broan, just a better and more expensive model.
