I swapped my over the stove GE microwave with the GE Range Hood (JVX5300SJSS). The box said it only takes 10 minutes to install- more like 3 hours with the help of a second person (my wife). The item does not come with a power supply; you'll need to purchase one separately. But after getting the necessary extra parts and lining up the vent, the hood does it's job fantastically!! It's also very easy to clean. My suggestion for anybody looking to replace or add this appliance to their kitchen check all the prep work you have to do before taking on this task. Now off to installing a backsplash....

Hello, I purchased this unit NEW. I am reviewing to complaing about the engineering & design of this product, as well as quality issues. After installing, the unit squeaks continuously while the fan runs due to the hinges of flapper value for the external vent, on both Medium and High fan settings. Also, the fan was rubbing severely on the interior plastic housing. I had to use a box cutter knife to shave away plastic to keep the fan from grinding on the plastic. In addition, the metal grease filters do not fit well. They are nearly 1/8 inch too large. Both my wife and I struggled to get these to install. We had to bend the metal in order to get them to fit. Lastly, we have a standard 30 inch oak cabinet. Using the template provided, the mounting screws also caused the unit's fan to rub on it's own housing. I had to use enlarged washers and move the entire unit forward in the eye-holes and secure it to prevent the rubbing. The exterior of the unit has inconsistence manufacturing on the edges, and the top middle of the unit sags so there is a larger gap between the unit and the cabinet at the top center. The light on the right side of the unit does not stay seated in its housing either, it sags, and hangs below the flush surface of the unit, looking terrible. I am greatly disappointed in this unit, the engineering, and the quality that GE put into this product. The sheet metal is flimbsy and not high quality. I just purcahse 3 additional GE appliances, a refridgerator, stove, and dishwasher. I hope the quality of these products is better than this vent hood product.

So far so good. This is a very nice unit. Multiple fan speeds and very nice lights to illuminate cook area.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Had to replace a fan about 4 months ago and chose this one. Stainless steel looks great; nice, quiet fan with a "super" speed button for those "oops!" cooking moments! Price was reasonable and installation went quickly.
GE Stove Top Hood
from Granbury, TX, United States
I decided that since I was updating my other kitchen appliances I would go ahead and update the hood top so I researched several models and went with the JVX5300SJSS. So pleased with this product. It has two settings for lights, two settings for air return (mine does not vent outdoors). It is sleek in design and perfectly matches the other new GE kitchen products. Oh and it also has a night light you can use.

Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Sleek design with nicely placed function buttons
I'm not sorry I purchased another GE product. Very easy to install a tad more than 10 Minutes ( I'm slow) but very easy. The lights are wonderful. Buy it you won't be sorry.
GE Range Hood JVX5300DJWW
By Dissatisified GE Customer
from Kenmore, WA, United States
GE range hood is very noisy, like a jet taking off and essentially only draw cooking vapors on the left side. BTW: Oddly, the GE cook top has the large burner for frying and boiling pasta in the right side. Also, don't be fooled by two filters, in my opinion the right one is useless, a poor design. Even though we have a external vent, it blew vapors back in room. To fix it, the installers put duct tape over the vent into the kitchen. When I tried to replace it, GE customer service representative informed me that GE doesn't have a customer satisfaction guarantee for its appliances. However, GE is going to send a technician out to determine whether the appliance is working as designed. What happens when it just a bad design? It appears to be a builder-grade product. We are extremely dissatisfied with product.

The first one we bought was defective. It took over six weeks to get a replacement. The fan is loud and the blades are a cheap plastic. The fan is only located on one side and does NOT have good suction. We have this vented to the outside and it still does not pull food smells out of the kitchen well. Do not waste your money buying this vent. So disappointed in this GE product!
