Product Overview

Time consuming ways of installing hoods are now a thing of the past. The FIT system on this Whirlpool 30 in. range hood eliminates measuring, cutting and filler strips for a perfect fit every time. Its quiet operation (just 7 sones at highest speed) and three fan speeds help keep kitchen air clear without disturbing family time in the kitchen. Halogen lighting illuminates the cooktop surface below. And the hood's option to be internally vented (with optional charcoal filter kit) provides additional installation choices.

California residents: see   Proposition 65 information

Customer Questions & Answers

What is the filter model # for Whirpool range hood modeel #UXT5230BDS?

I have look in the WebSite and I cannot find it?
Asked by: Clavidia
the one whirlpool recommended didnt fit. i think W10386873 is the right one
Answered by: jason
Date published: 2016-12-12

My cabinet over the stove is 15 inches deep X 30 inches wide. Will this venthood work.

There are no profile ( side view measurements). I can't tell if the top is going to roll-off before it reaches the 15 Inch depth. Don't know why a simple drawing and measurement are not in the specifications.
Asked by: CZ
It sounds like you might have Ikea Sektion cabinets. I went to the store and saw that they solved the depth of their new cabinet problem by moving the hoods and microwaves forward and installing a piece of wood behind them. It almost looked like a 2x4. Whirlpool manufactures their hoods, so this should apply.

indoor venting

if i install this unit for inside venting, where do i purchase filters and where does the hood vent to? (Front, sides etc?)
Asked by: Bigfoot
The filter for interior venting can be purchased online from Home Depot. Check in-store, as they have some charcoal filters in-stock (but not all). The air vents out the top of the unit, in front of the cabinet to which it is attached, out into the room.

Customer Reviews

30 in. Convertible Range Hood in Stainless Steel is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 85.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very nice product Looks very good. I like that the bottom is enclosed, not open like many other (cheaper) ones. The fan is very strong. Most likely will never use the 3rd setting, as the 1st and 2nd are powerful enough. The lights are excellent. Installation is not as easy as I thought it would be, and I think while maybe it can be done by one person, the extra set of hands certainly is a plus. We had some holes already in our drywall from a microwave this was being replaced with the range top, and this complicated the install, but we managed with some modifications. Overall, it's very attractive, highly functional, and after a couple of weeks of use I am very happy with this purchase.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Installation is a pain I liked the look and control features so bought this for a kitchen remodel. The box promises easy installation, but the reality is the installation is difficult because the small tabs that support the unit are difficult to reach and of poor design. Also, knocking out the little circle cut out for the electric wire should be easy but took 15 minutes and lots of aggravation because it is not even close to being ready to come out with just the recommended screw drive. Small screws for the electric cover and the duct make it very difficult to get this thing put together. At least it worked once installed.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Looks good and works great Replaced an older over-the-range microwave. Love the extra space this gives along with great lighting and a much quieter yet effective fan. Recommend an extra hands for installation, the challenge in our case was securing the interior edge of the existing thru-the-wall duct piece so the flange on the range hood would line up with it. Comes ready to hard wire, so also needed Range Hood Power Cord (internet #205601449 / UPC 883049302102).

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Just so-so, you get what you pay for. For the less than $200 this ultimately cost on sale, I'm not unhappy with it, but it's true that you get what you pay for. This looked a lot better online and in store than it does in my kitchen. It honestly just looks cheap. And it is LOUD. I replaced a 10 year old off-brand vent hood with this one, and this one is easily 5 times as loud as the one it replaced. There's not a chance I'lll ever run it on high, and medium is even very questionable. It will serve its purpose for a while (I needed a stainless hood to match my stainless range), but it will definitely get replaced as soon as the opportunity (and funds) presents itself.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from not easy to install Good: low price, brand name, 350 CPM fan speed, good LCD lighting. Bad: expensive home delivery price ($60); no UPS delivery so need to take a day off from work to wait for delivery; need to buy extra accessories: power cord, charcoal filter, wire connectors ($50); difficult to install; bad instruction, mounting brackets not matching slots in the back of the range hood; punch hole won't come off for the power cord; rang hood longer than standard 30" cabinet; fan on high speed is very noisy; no whirlpool logo.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Manufacturer Specs Wrong This exhaust fan was purchased after an exhaustive search (pun intended). It seemed to meet all our requirements. We sent the specs provided by the manufacturer to our cabinet builder. Cabinets were built to fit, but hood is about 1/8 inch wider than was specified and will not fit the 30" specified opening. Might be a great hood but we will never know because it won't fit. It has delayed our install because we have to find a replacement and reschedule the electrician. This model was not 29 15/16" wide as described. It appears to be put together in such a manner that is was wider than it should be, so it could just be a QC problem. But today it's my problem.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice range hood. Works fine and very quiet. I left the sticky back protective covering on the hood until I could have it installed to protect it from paint spatter and scratches. Then I tried to remove the sticky covering. It is impossible to get off after the hood is installed. It is very thick and strong and I can not pull it loose from areas that are attached to the cabinet. Be sure to remove all protective covering before installation.
