Looks, and preforms, better than expected. I read a lot of the reviews criticizing the LED lights on the range hood as being "too bright". I did not find that to be the case. They are bright, as bright as if you were actually cooking in the light of sun-light, but not overly bright. I find the lighting to be excellent, along with the entire range hood looks and operation. I had it professionally installed by my local electrician and an apprentice electrician that he brought with him. The two men came in, removed the old existing NuTone range hood (installed only 35 years ago; still running but very noisy because of worn out bearings in the motor), had the new range hood installed, and they were out-the-door in 45 minutes. Everything working perfectly. P.S.; I would highly recommend hiring a licensed electrician or H.V.A.C. company to install your new range hood. It only cost me $150.00 for installation. That was $150.00 well spent.

Instructions are simple with three types of vent paths. Damper went in easiliy and the only add on was some metal duct tape around the Damper assembly. The hood unit went in easily (lined up perfectly with previous unit mount holes) with a little assistance from my spouse. Plan for a helping hand in holding unit in place when mounting hood vent. High setting is more powerful than previous unit at about the same or even less sound. Finish matches new stove perfectly. Very happy with this purchase. I also purchased the HOODPT3 Rangehood Cord Connection Kit but would only recommend using it if you have a receptacle installed or plan on putting one in. In the end I didn't need it.

It’s a little loud but matches my Samsung black stainless steel range and fridge perfectly. Fairly easy to install. One person can do it. Took about 2 hours.

I selected this particular range hood because the exhaust opening supposedly aligned with the old range hood exhaust and just slip right in place....wrong. Fortunately the person that installed it was able to make it fit after a trip to the hardware store for parts. Although it took a few hours to install I am very happy with it. It works as advertised and the filters are easy to remove, clean and insert. It is very quiet compared to my old fan that sounded like a landing aircraft. I do not like that the tabs used to remove/insert the filters are visible below the unit but that is not a deal breaker. I read the specs of both units which are made by the same company and i feel the exhausts should have better aligned than they did. If this had been a new install it might have been easier.

Overall I’m happy with the range hood but very unhappy with the screens. I put the screens in the dishwasher after using it for 6 weeks. Big mistake! They came out horrible! Looked 100% better before washing them. I put the screens on the top rack and then tried to hand wash to try and remove the stains caused by the dishwasher. No such luck.

Response from NuToneCustomerSupportJun 25, 2020
Thank you for your review of model AVSF130WW. We are sorry to hear of the issue you had with the filters. The grease filters should be cleaned frequently. Use a warm dishwashing detergent solution. While the grease filters are dishwasher safe, discoloration of the filters may occur if using phosphate detergents, or as a result of local water conditions - but this will not affect filter performance. To minimize or prevent discoloration, we recommend hand washing filters using a mild detergent.

This range hood was quite possibly the easiest I have ever installed. The design gives several options and everything needed to properly install was included with easy to follow instructions. The unit was installed and operating in under 30 minutes. The lights are very bright and provide excellent coverage. The fan is large and very effective, it is a bit noisy on the high setting but the noise does not both us. The additional filter options are simple to install and so far have been effective.

This fit my existing 36” cut out perfectly with my existing rectangular up vent perfectly. It really is a one person install. I did use my old electrical cord from my “dead” microwave/vent unit. I can’t say enough good about the LED lights! I still need to install custom cut stainless steel back splash surround to finish off my project.
