Well thought out product
By Mike C.
from Vallejo, CA
Comments about Broan 42" Stainless Under Cabinet Range Wall Hood:
This is a very well thought out product. The lighting is excellent and having a night light feature is nice. The fan will auto start if you forget to turn it on. For those of you who cook with gas and start filling your kitchen with carbon monoxide if you forget to turn it on, BIG plus! So far this vent exhausts odors very well with the 36 inch cooktop I have. Will see after I get the new cooktop with larger burners in how well it performs, which brings me to the only drawback I see to this product. The blower itself works very well, but it is mounted to the left side of the hood. I held a tissue under each of the three screens underneath the hood and the blower will pull and hold the tissue against the left and center screen. The right screen will not draw any part of the tissue to it at all. My new cooktop will have one of the power burners on that side. This is the only reason I won't rate this product 5 stars. Maybe Broan will consider moving the blower to the center or installing dual squirrel cages.If you have the rectangular vent, the backdraft damper is included. If you have 7 inch round venting, make sure you buy the damper.On a final note, I would recommend this product and will happily keep mine as it is much better than the older design I had.
Service and delivery comments:
This is one of two products I have purchased with ABT and am very satisfied with the whole process and delivery.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Not bad, but could be better
from Sacramento, CA
It's definitely an upgrade from my late 80s hood, but it's a little louder than I would like on the medium and high fan speeds. It does expel smoke and odors well though. You can barely hear it on the low fan speed and the lighting is awesome! I like the all-black look too! The buttons are not consistently responsive and the clock runs fast over a short period of time (a month into it and it's already 3 minutes fast). It lets you turn off the clock so it doesn't show in the display, which is nice, because I already have to many clocks in the kitchen! The fan timer (auto turn-off after 10 minutes) is a plus too, especially since you can't hear it on the low fan speed.
This unit has it all
from New York
We have totally enjoyed this unit ever since we installed it. The lighting has four stages, one is a night light that comes on automatically when the lights in that area are turned off. That is a very cool feature. The exhaust fan has three settings plus a turbo setting. This unit is the class of the field, if your looking for a solid unit with great lighting and all the exhaust you can stand this is your unit.
vent fan quit after 18 months
Great when it worked, quiet but only lasting 18 months I'll never buy broan again
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Attractive and functional, but controls need reworking.
from Johnstown, CO, USA
In our new home we replaced a new, lower quality hood with this unit for its features and appearance. It is attractive and seems to do a good job of lighting the range and removing smoke and odors. Where it fails, though, is in the control buttons and automatic night lighting. The unit automatically turns a low light on after dark. We do not want this feature active, so we disable it. But each time we happen to loose power to our home, this feature has to be re-set. Would prefer to be able to permanently disable it. Also, the fan control buttons are overly sensitive and not easily operated.
from Chicago, IL
What is not to like: Good looking, relatively quiet, excellent performance and features. Love the auto night light! Learning how to use these features such as clock setting can be confusing but just read and follow the instructions, One note: The Heat Sentry which turns blower on higher when excess cooking heat is detected is requireed to protect the hood's electronic equipment.
