    Answer: 
    Thank you for your question on the model QS236WW range hood. The range hood is operating as designed. There will be some air blowing down through the light holes and small holes at the bottom front of the range hood to help keep the bulbs cooled down and to create an air curtain to help keep smoke and odors underneath the hood so they can be vented. Please contact the Technical Service Department at 800-637-1453 for further assistance.

    Our old one did not have the cuts/vent slots on the top of the unit that you can see from the front. Is it possible to get one without these slots in the top? Thanks,

    whole assembly up into the hood where it is dangling freely even further up in the hood. How do I take apart the hood in order to gain access to the assembly to replace? I have removed the three screws in front and have taken the filters out but it appears that the hood is one solid piece?

    Answer: 
    Mick,
    Need to get in contact with Broan about this...I had the same problem and they sent me a new lighting assembly that had much stronger clips to hold it in place. The size of the bulb makes a big difference also. The only thing that you can do at this stage is take off the front (remove 5 screws and take lighting unit out (make sure you unplug the connector as the wires are bare on back of the lights. Replace both bulbs and re-screw the front plate back up into the unit. Good Luck.

    Clicking sound won't stop

    Customer avatar
    by
    GabrielR
    Quebec City
     on QS236SS
    Hello,

    Ever since it was installed, I hear a clicking sound.

    My lightbulbs were quite tight so I had to remove the bottom cover to change the bulbs. I noticed that when the bottom cover is not in place, there is no clicking noise. As soon as I put the bottom cover back, the noise comes back.

    I could not find what would be the cause, except that it's related to the bottom.

    Has anyone experienced this? Perhaps Broan has a fix?

    Thanks!

    Answer: 
    Gabriel,

    I would recommend placing a thin strip of weather strip foam or 3M double sided tape on the sides and lower interface (toward wall side of lights) to quiet the clicking, which was intermittent metal to metal contact in my case. One good test is to try placing light pressure on different locations while the noise is presenting, this will inform where to locate your damping material.

    Good luck.

    The fan speed jumps to 3 automactically

    Customer avatar

     on QS230SS
    My QS2300SS jumps to 3 fan speed automatically sometimes when I cook for a long period like 20 30 minutes. The only thing I can do is to unplug the power cord and wait for hours to plug it back, it will then be back to normal. Is there any issue related to the control panel? How do I get this fixed?

    Answer: 
    Thank you for your question on the model QS230SS range hood. The QS230SS range hood includes a heat sentry system that will monitor the heat buildup underneath the range hood. If the heat increases too much the hood will turn on the exhaust fan (or raise the speed of the fan) until the heat is decreased. It would then turn the fan off or back to the originally selected speed.
