Product Overview

Time consuming ways of installing hoods are now a thing of the past. The FIT system on this Whirlpool 36 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 3 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.

is there a power cord available or does it have to be hard wired?

Asked by: PM
PM, The range hood comes ready to be hard wired. However, there are electrical plugs available to attach if your local electrical codes allow for this type of installation. Thank you.

Customer Reviews

36 in. Convertible Range Hood in Stainless Steel is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 10.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Works well but noisy Looks great. The fan is strong but very loud. On low it's annoying, you'd have to raise your voice to be heard over it; on high you'd have to shout. 7 sones is not quiet at all, it is comparable to the noise of a busy street. The lights are extremely bright and dangerously hot. Not just uncomfortably hot, there's smoke coming off the glass. Replacing these with lower-wattage LED bulbs is next on my list -- another $25. Who even uses halogens now? A dimmer would have been great on this, but no. Get this if you need a strong fan and don't care how loud it is, and don't mind either having your forehead toasted or replacing the bulbs.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Functional and Stylish at a Reasonable Price This is a good range hood. 350 CFM at top speed for when you are cooking on all burners. It is noisy at that speed but unless you have big bucks to spend I don't think you will find a quieter range for a comparable price. I like the bright halogen lights, but an improvement to the design would be to add a dimmer, which would probably only add a few bucks to the price. I did a lot of research and am very happy with this purchase. One caveat: Don't believe it when a company tells you an appliance is easy to install. This is not a one person job, and modifications are almost always needed. If you are not a true DIY-er or skilled handyman, hire professional help!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not happy Not what I was told it was at the store as follows: 1. Can not be fitted with LED bulbs as the store rep told me it could (see 5 below) 2. Poor design of filter retainer as the screw that keeps it in place while the fan runs is not easily replaced as it is very small and the retainer doesn't line up without a lot of manipulation to allow the screw to be replaced. 3. Charcoal filters cost over $15.00 every 3 months to replace 4. Filter dimensions on the Home Depot site are wrong as it takes (1) 17 1/4" by 11 1/2" by 3/8". This caused the local store to order the wrong charcoal filters as the store does not stock them which is a real pain! 5. Since there are no LED bulbs manufactured to fit this model the ones the local store said I could use and they ordered were never going to fit. 6. Removing the installed new hood and returning it would have left my wife without lighting for several days until a replacement arrived with the features we wanted we're stuck with this undesirable one. One saving grace is that it probably won't last 50+ years as the Magic Chef it replaced did. 7. Should have purchased the cheaper model with LED bulbs and cleanable filters. Certainly not made for a senior citizen with reduce dexterity and vision.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Terrible instructions and noisy fan with filter The description of the product suggested that one person could install this hood, which was very unrealistic, unless that person had more than two arms. We are big DIYers so are not new at this kind of thing. Not only did you need two people to install but the directions were terrible. They left out steps and some of the steps made absolutely no sense. We ordered the charcoal filters for this model (only available online). The fan became very loud once you install the filter, we have taken it out to see how we can install it better....

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very nice design. As others have commented, this was not an easy installation even for an experienced do it yourselfer . The lights are very hot and plan to try lower wattage. Was surprised that the 10 in. damper was supplied and it cost me $61 to get the 7in. round one. I didn't find the fan to be that loud and it does the job well. The quality is good and it looks great. It would help the install if they included a templet. If you plan to install yourself I would recommend three pairs of hands.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 36 in. convertible range hood review overall this range hood is good, but the installation is not what the claim so easy. it take some effort. Also it didn't leave convenience to make installation easy, such as they can leave a hole for the wire go through, I have to drill a hole myself.
