To start, after I fixed my issues below I really like this product. Its a good value and performs nice after the following fixes were used. I would give 5-stars if I didn't have to discover these fixes myself. Support did come out to switch my motor but it didn't solve my problem after two weeks of use noise came back. The Problems I have experienced with this product: 1. Loud vibrations between hood vent and cabinets 2. Loud clicking noise from fan running (fan hits its own bracket on sides) The Fix: 1. Go to the hardware store and get a package of foam liner with adhesive on one side. Its very inexpensive. It is usually used to insulate between attic stairs and the ceiling. Place it between hood and the cabinets. This stops vibration between cabinets and hood meaning no more noise. Fixed. 2. Take a socket wrench and holding fan blade in place loosen nut. Drop the fan blade slightly lower then previously installed. Even 2-3mm can fix problem.Tighten nut keeping blade in lower position on the rod the nut holds onto. After tightening turn on fan to low. If no more clicking is present place back grease guard into place and try low setting again. This is to make sure fan is not hitting the grease guard at all. If clicking or hitting still try adjusting the fan and rinse and repeat. Why this fixes the clicking: The bracket holding the fan in gets slightly smaller up top and when the fan spins it has a slight give and raises itself slightly higher as it spins on the rod allowing the side of the fan to hit the bracket.
My home builder installed this. The unit looks like it is unfinished when you look up underneath it. I added a photo to show the underside. It is very noisy. The lights are totally inadequate. We will be replacing it very soon.
It's nice, fan is little vocal. Wish there was a lower fan speed.
I like the appearance, classic looking. Does a good job.
Relatively easy installation despite confusing directions. Looks nice and so far works well
Not so sure about the 10 minute installation...especially since I in stalled this in a more than 30" space.......took 90 minutes longer......but OK
Comes with a cheap filter (plus a spare). Looks like it was made out of reynolds wrap and the light is very dim.
Works good. Shows fingerprints. Lightbulb went out first month.
