Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by bevegan1 you get what you pay for...
This hood was the cheapest one at Home Depot. We FINALLY got it installed after having to wire on an outlet plug for the fan and the lights OURSELVES! Surprised none of the other reviewers mentioned this not coming with a way to plug it in....
Also, if you aren't venting out through the roof, you will need to buy a filter separately, as the aluminum filter is totally useless.
Also, if you are taller than your hood's mounted height, it WILL blow right in your face.
Our only consolation is that we are selling our house and so this is NOT the hood we will have to live with ... lol! I do like our new carpet though.... wish I could take that with us.
DON'T BUY THIS USELESS PRODUCT.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by END723 A good product.
I like this product because it gives me the option of using one or two lights so I have sufficient light when I am using the range in the evening without having to turn on other kitchen lights. I, also, like the fan speed options and it is easy to wipe clean.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Jim1105 Great product with great customer support.
A product is only as good as the manufacturer. The motor on my vent hood did not work. I contacted the manufacturer about the problem, a company rep named Tammy Makowski arranged for shipment of a replacement fan motor. I installed the new motor and the vent hood performs as advertised. I am very pleased with the prompt attention given to my problem and Tammy's efficiency. I would highly recommend both the product and the manufacturer.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by jose Didn't Learn the First time
I have purchased two of these over the past two years. I didn't learn the first time when the motor went out. I called the warranty center but it was to much of a hazzle so I went out and bought another one...same brand...call me an idiot. Needless to say after thirty days it also went out. I will never buy a nuTone again. The quality is poor and the customer service department is very poor at responding. Invest in a higher priced but definately a different brand.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Merideth Nice and Quiet
This hood replaces a very old one that was quite noisy and would not even bend the steam from a pan toward the fan. I am pleased at how quiet this fan is, especially on low, and how fast it clears the bacon cooking smell from the room when I run it on high with the patio door open. The two lights are enough to cook by without the main kitchen light.
I had not heard of the brand, but bought it because it was the only one in stock to fit my existing 7" exhaust duct. It worked out well.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by norcuron Reliable product for a rental house
We have had this in our rental house for many years now. When we did have a problem (with the belt), Nutone had EXCELLENT customer service!! They mailed us the part promptly and even gave service over the phone when I had questions.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Swaggercat dissapointment
I've had this hood for about 2 years. The light covers shrunk and cracked from the heat of the light bulbs. Now they won't even stay in place. I could replace the covers but the manufacture charges $24 each,(you need 2) and the same thing would happen. Now I have to replace the entire unit.
I don't have an outside exhaust system so mine blows into the room but instead of blowing up, this blows right into your face if you are standing at the stove.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by GASB Worst range hood I've ever had
This range hood is the worst! It doesn't draw out the fumes while you're cooking. My old hood was far superior even after 20 years of use. The light covers constantly fall off onto my cooking surface, sometimes in the middle of the night when the lights are not even on. It seems to be cheaply made. Mine was installed for outside ventiallation and yet air still blows into the room through the front vent. All in all, it is a bust.
