Heat Sentry™: Broan's Heat Sentry technology vastly improves the safety capability of the range hood by automatically engaging the blower to its maximum speed once an excessive temperature has been reached.
Convertible Range Hood: Convertible range hoods can function either as a ventilated (ducted) or recirculating unit. The primary benefit being that it allows for the broadest compatibility across multiple kitchen environments. A convertible unit can be made into recirculating typically through the purchase of a recirculating kit. Convertible units don't compromise their efficiency or functionality between ducted or re-circulating configurations, leaving the choice entirely dependent on what's the most convenient for the end user.
Clean Sense™ Charcoal Filters (Non-Ducted Installation Only): Broan Clean Sense™ charcoal filters (BPSF30, sold separately) feature an innovative built-in indicator that changes color when it is time to replace your filters—an easy maintenance reminder that ensures your range hood is always functioning at its best.

Broan QS230 Reviews
Rated 4 out of
Quiet Powerful Fan, but Difficult to install!Very quiet low and medium fan noise. High speed fan noise is moderate but tolerable. Suction is great!
A lot of disassembly required to plug ductless vent.
A lot of exact measuring required to fit existing duct work.
Front mounting screws almost impossible to get too.
Took me 2+ hours, one tired wife, and every tool I owned
to get it mounted.
Also no mounting screws, wire nuts, romex fitting, or light bulbs included.
Broan should have included some BC powders for the headache installation causes.
But does look nice and is very quiet, and I really like the pushbutton operation for fan and lights.
Bought a twopack of 50watt Par20 Halogen bulbs at Walmart for $12 dollars + tax.

Excellent ProductBought this hood to replace a microwave. It was easily converted to accomodate a plug vs hard wiring. I love the sleek design. It is exceptionally quiet for a range hood and removes smoke quickly. It does have razor sharp edges that you need to take notice of when installing. They do not pose a problem once installed. Broan does need to include the hardware for installation. Light bulbs would be a nice bonus as well. Installation was fairly quick and easy. Low level light makes a great night light as well. I really like the touch buttons vs the older rocker switches. I highly recommend the product.

works well but a pain to installIn a comprehensive remodel, this was one of many products I bought, assembled and installed. The contrast between this "made in USA" product and other offshore products was disappointingly profound. This $300 hood has sharp sheetmetal edges everywhere, requires final assembly by owner, and doesn't even include wire nuts, wiring bushing, or backflow damper for round duct installation. By contrast, $45 bar stools were highly finished, fit together perfectly, and the Phillips screwdriver need for installation was thoughtfully included. Broan should wake up to the reality that some offshore company will have them for lunch--deservedly.

Nice and QuietWe purchased this range hood to replace an old noisy one. It is much quieter and does a better job of removing cooking odors than our old one. It also looks much more attractive, too!

Louder than expectedI just completed a full remodel of my kitchen and the new layout required a non-ducted range hood. I looked at quite a few different options before I made this purchase. This item had the lowest sones rating I could find.
The hood looks GREAT! It has 2 lights with 3 brightness settings and that is very cool.
The fan has 3 settings too. It says that for non-ducted applications settings 1 and 2 are the quietest. Well, the lower settings should be quieter so that is obvious.
Setting 1 - very quiet and I mean silent, can barely tell it's actually running.
Setting 2 - sounds pretty much like a bathroom exhaust fan to me. Yes it's definitely louder. Not overwhelming though so we will use this setting if we need it.
Setting 3 - OMG...sounds like a jet taking off. This setting is loud. The only comparison I can think of is when you have your auto AC on high and you switch from normal AC to recirculate. I think most of the noise comes from the exhaust side that is blowing back out into the kitchen. I doubt we will ever use this setting short of a fire on the stove billowing smoke.
All of this said. Based on the look, the way the lights are configured, and the quietness of the 2 lower settings I would buy this product again for a similar application even though it's a little more expensive than other solutions.

Not impressedConverting to vent mode was difficult. The plastic part broke, had to glue it back together. To use the 7 inch duct, they don't tell you a damper has to be purchased. The whole thing is not real airtight on the inside.

30" Allure hood rangeExcellent product very easy installation and looks great with my new black stove.The 3 speed fan and 3 level lighting work perfert.I even leave on level 1 light as a night light in the kitchen.
What tipe of fan does the Qs 230 have in it ? squrrel/ centifrugal or blades
A. The Broan QS230 has centrifugal blower.
Can this model be bought as a non duct unit
A. The Broan QS230 is not sold as a non-duct unit.
We have a 16" deep cabinet that we are installing the Broan QS230 hood to (non-ducted). Is it OK to install the hood 3"-4" off the back wall so the flat part of the hood aligns with the front of the cabinet and the radius part of the hood (with the exhaust grill) will not be under the cabinet?
A. Yes, that will work fine. The Broan QS230 is not required to sit flush with your back wall.
Can this model be connected to kitchen ducting?
A. The Broan QS230 can be installed with 3-1/4" x 10" Ducting.
what is the opitmal and maximum height this fan can be installed above counter.
A. The bottom of the Broan QS230 should be mounted no higher than 30" and no lower than 24" above your cook top.
How can QS230BL be adapted to the duct that is there>
A. Out of the box this will work with 3.25" x 10", or 7" round ducting. You can adapter it to larger size ducting, but if you use an adapter to reduce the ducting, you will void the warranty, create more noise, and lessen the stated CFM ratings. If you adapt it to larger ducting you would be fine.
