    Answer: 
    Thank you for your question on the model QP230WW range hood. To remove the light bulb you would push in on the bulb and turn counterclockwise approximately ½ inch. The bulb should then drop from the socket. Please contact the Technical Service Department at 800-637-1453 if you need further assistance.

    Answer: 
    Thank you for your question on the model QP230SS range hood. The QP230SS range hood is designed to be installed underneath a standard 12 inch deep cabinet. If installed under a 15 inch cabinet you would need to move it out from the wall and fill in behind the hood. Please contact the Technical Service Department at 800-637-1453 for further assistance.

     on QP236SS
    My current old Broan range hood is 36" wide, with a 6" back height. It is ducted into a duct box that is 3 1/4" deep and 10" wide. Do you have a stainless hood that will work with these dimensions?

    Answers

    Answer: 
    The aluminum mesh grease filters should be washed in your dishwasher approximately every month depending on the amount of usage. Clean all-metal filters in the dishwasher using a non-phosphate detergent. Discoloration of the filter may occur if using phosphate detergents, or as a result of local water conditions — but this will not affect filter performance. For non-duct filters, it really depends on the frequency and type of cooking that is performed. Normally, every three (3) to six (6) months is recommended for replacing the charcoal filters.
