    Rated 4 out of 5 by from after 10 years daily use, it's working like new Although we have washed the filters occasionally, some grease has settled around the motor and fan. The odor of stale grease is present when near to range.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from A good product. I like this product because it gives me the option of using one or two lights so I have sufficient light when I am using the range in the evening without having to turn on other kitchen lights. I, also, like the fan speed options and it is easy to wipe clean.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from This product has great features due it have great lighting and a 2 speed fan that will move hot air into the vent quickly. I give this rating on a scale from 1 to 10 a 10. It is very stylish for the appliance that I already have purchased and installed. It was very easy to installed. This product was one of the best appliance that I have purchased in a long time. The sound level is great it appears that it has a built in noise reduction inside. When the fan is on, you can hardly hear it running. We love it in my household.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Ease to install and does a great job for the price I had it for 2 years now and still working good. Very easy to install as well. My did not come with a cord,you have to buy it separately. And the fan is a little loud, even on the low setting.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good product overall We've had this for over two years now and use the light function almost daily and the fan weekly. Overall it is a good product. I especially like the high and low settings on both the light and the fan. I would recommend overall. It is a good value for the price.

    My NS6500 blows air down not up

    Asked by: keno
    Sounds like you did not connect it to an exhaust duct. If you intended to install it as a recirculating hood you may need to add a charcoal filter and review the installation instructions.
