Comments about Broan RMP17004 Range Hood Accessory:
I had high hopes for this fan when I redid my kitchen. I wanted a good working fan that was quiet, instead I got the most noisy fan ever. I have to turn it off when I have guests over because we cannot understand each other, same for the phone. Now after 4.5 years the sound suddenly changed into a high whining racket, I do not dare to use it any longer and I am looking for a replacement.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

I've bought Broan products for decades - at least 5 total units. My favorite was the Silhouette with the infinitely variable speed control. So, when I moved into a new house with a recessed vent hood space built into a cabinet, I couldn't really use that one because it would require major cabinet modifications. I elected to purchase the RMP17004 at a ridiculously high price. First thing out of the box that I noted was the rather flimsy construction. Still, I went ahead. After it was installed, I turned it on and even at the lowest of the three defined speeds, it sounded like a 747 landing in my kitchen. For this kind of money, they could have at least put a variable rheostat control to set at the fan at the speed required for your cooking job. I am exploring my options for a different (any manufacturer) unit since this is extremely objectionable to me.
Works well, but noisy
from Washington, DC, USA
We like the unit well enough, but found it a bit noisy which limits it's usefulness because of the open design of our condo unit.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
It's has a beautiful design. Very sleek and easy to install but the grill had a small dent in it. Not enough to return but i noticed it.
Very quiet for the power it has.

The two lights ensure the stove top is lit perfectly. The adjustable fan is definitely a great feature and the spinning fan cage is on the outside of the house. Our neighbors always know what's for supper in our house! Well worth the money spent 2+ years ago during our kitchen remodel.
Been in for two years now and have had no problems.

Can't go wrong with Broan/Neutone and it was a reasonable price.
Way too loud
from Conifer, CO 80433, USA
Impossible to stand near this thing when it is on because of the overpowering noise. . As a consequence, it does not get used. Worthless to us. I am surprised there are not more complaints.

1)Overall, the hood performs well. The cook top and hood are located on an exterior wall between a corner of the kitchen and the wall oven. But despite a short (approximately 12â€�) metal duct with taped joints and seams to the outside, cooking odors have been noticed in other parts of the kitchen which are not near the outside wall. 2)The filter frames collect moisture. Once the fan is stopped hot water drips on the cook top or the cooks arms or hands. Removing the filters for cleaning leaves a trail of water. 3) 30 watt bulbs provide more than enough light and should be considered in lieu of the 50 watt bulbs provided. Obviously, energy will be saved.
Efficient removal of cooking odors and smoke, but VERY LOUD.
Efficiency and sound were our top two criteria when purchasing an exhaust for our new kitchen. This was a disappointment since it was represented as being very quiet. We avoid using it since it is difficult to carry on a conversation while it is in use. Would not purchase again.
