Extended warranties are usually very inexpensive and can save you thousands in the future. Some can even cover extra costs that result, such as cost of food that spoils when your fridge dies. It's simple and inexpensive to purchase extended warranties and one of the smartest ways to protect your investment.

Appliances can be large, heavy, and expensive and you probably don't have the special tools or expertise needed to fix them in a crisis. If you can spare a few thousand dollars without batting an eyelash for new appliances should they break tomorrow, don't buy a warranty. But if you're like most of us, protect yourself by purchasing inexpensive extended warranties when you buy a new product and save yourself big money in the long run.

Professional delivery and installation is available for every product we sell. We would be happy to coordinate delivery and installation for you.

Not a smooth finish like the rest of the appliances still looks dusty after cleaning. Buttons function fine but are clunky and very mechanical feeling. Just doesnt look as refined as the rest of their line.

Looked nice...BUT

Submitted by Roci - 3/14/2017

The lighting is great. However our buttons have begun to pop-out. One is stuck on the inside and the other flew across the room like a bullet. Glad it didnt hit anyone or anything Cant believe that just over a year old the first button suddenly came dislodged. Now I cant find replacement parts. Ugh.

Clearly An Engineering Defect

Submitted by DavidK12962 - 9/3/2016

We bought this hood had it professionally installed and are pleased with the performance. However like so many others that have written reviews weve suffered the identical problem with the buttons. The notion of having to buy an entire control at $150 - 195 prices vary from site to site to rectify an engineering situation that is well documented is pretty humble. Sure would be nice to get a rep who would not only take care of my problem but others out there with the same issue. Aside from this issue - its really a very nice unit.

What a change

Submitted by jukay - 9/3/2016

We are enjoying having a vent which is vented to the outside. Our only problem is that we have had a problem with gnats coming in through the vent. Anyone else have this problem? How do we solve this? The fan noise takes some getting use to.

Do not buy this hood

Submitted by evjobclub - 8/15/2016

After owning this hood for one year the on/off buttons for the fan started to fall out. Eventually all 3 buttons fell off. I just contacted a service repair company I was referred to by Frigidaire CSR. Since the hood is past the warranty here is the cost quoted by the repair company to get this $269 hood fixed: The part is $189.11 + $16.17 tax and thats not including the service charge $85 and labor $30-$60 for a total of approximately $320.28-$350.28. As the service company recommended to me I should probably just throw it in the trash and not repair. I am better off going out and buying something different. What a big disappointment and let down on product quality

Button fell out and cannot be replaced :

Submitted by Craig Z - 7/26/2016

I too had the same issue as others with a button falling off. Its outside of warranty so I called an authorized service center to get the button fixed. The quote I was given: $229.35 for parts $17.83 tax and $99.98 labor for a total of $347.16. To fix the button that fell out on this $269 hood. So I guess I need to buy a new hood. I recommend looking elsewhere for a range hood.

very nice design

Submitted by gt52 - 3/22/2016

We bought this for its clean compact design but are very satisfied with it overall. Quality seems good and installation was relatively easy. It moves a lot of air without being overly noisy. My only complaint is that the operation of the switches seems a bit crude...although I do really like that they are mechanical push-button switches and not electronic touch switches.

Quiet and powerful

Submitted by Dadoo - 7/27/2015

After our cheapo vent fan bit the dust we wanted to get something much better. This fan has a cool look and I love the simplicity of the push-button controls. The grease trap is simple to remove for cleaning. The fan also offers back-vented top-vented and recirculating mounting options. The dual halogen lights are much better than the cheesy 40 watt bulb our old unit had. This fan moves a lot of air rated at 300 cfm when you need it to and at its highest setting you can still hold a conversation. The cons are minimal in my opinion but they are worth mentioning. The top surface sticks out further than I anticipated I believe this is so the recirculating vent is exposed if needed. It is about 2 inches proud of the cabinet face frame. It is also about an inch and a half shorter so we had to fill in the backsplash that was a minor inconvenience. Im pretty sure the dimensions are given I just didnt compare them. All in all I am very pleased with the look and functionality of this fan. There are many options in this price range and Im glad I chose this one.

The motor in this hood is so noisey. Very annoying.. You cant talk or hear while motor is running . If I knew how loud it was I definitely would never have bought it. Very very unhappy with this hood. Wish I could return it but dont have the box. Stainless steel smudges horribly.
