  • The WS1 Series Range Hoods are the quietest in their category and deliver the brilliance of halogen lighting to your cook top. Their quiet nature is due to the fan’s unique axial blade technology. You’ll be able to carry on a conversation while cooking without asking your family to repeat themselves.

    • Powder-coated finish in almond is durable, easy to clean and will be a perfect match to your almond appliances
    • Monochromatic almond controls blend with hood for a clean, neat appearance
    • 36” width to fit with like-size cook tops and cabinetry. Proper sizing provides effective ventilation
    • Rated at 1.5 sones on Normal speed, the WS1 is over 50% quieter than the typical range hood in its class. The 220 CFM fan provides effective ventilation and you won’t have to turn up the volume to hear your favorite song while cooking
    • Two-speed rocker control gives you convenient command of Normal and High fan speeds. Use the quiet, Normal, setting for average cooking conditions and switch to High to quickly remove unwanted cooking aromas
    • Twin halogen light system designed for bulbs up to 50 W, (PAR20 bulbs not included), can be adjusted to two levels with the front soft-touch push buttons. They provide bright, soft or ambient illumination for impressive lighting over the cook top and surrounding area. Enjoy the clear advantage of seeing what you are cooking
    • Two dishwasher-safe, aluminum grease filters are engineered to remove airborne particles efficiently and clean up easily to keep your range hood operating at peak efficiency (For non-duct option use charcoal filter, Model BPSF36, sold separately)
    • Clean Sense™ charcoal filters (BPSF36, sold separately) have an indicator that changes color when replacement is necessary for an easy maintenance reminder (non-ducted installation only)
    • Easy installation with keyhole mounting slots, connector/backdraft dampers and four ducting options provide simple flexibility
      • 3 ¼” x 10” vertical discharge
      • 3 ¼” x 10” horizontal discharge
      • 7” round, vertical discharge
      • Non-ducted recirculation requires two Clean Sense™ charcoal filters, BPSF36, sold separately
    • Includes adjustable duct connectors to accommodate off-center ductwork and make installation a snap

  • WS136AA is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 92.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from This product has easy to use features. This range hood was easy to install and all features are very easy to use.. The variable speed fan is quiet and the double lights with double brightness is a great feature and the stainless steel finish is easy to clean and take care of. The only thing I was disappointed with was the fact that the filters were not included with the range hood, especially at the price I paid even though it was reduced and being discontinued.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellant product. Surpassed my expectations. This under cabinet hood was a replacement for one already here. It performs a lot better than the old one. We have had no problems with it and I would recommend it to anyone. In fact my daughter and son-in-law bought the very same one and are also well pleased.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I like its looks, and ease of operation It looks like it was meant to be installed over our range as if it was originally installed with it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Has withstood the test of time A review written two months, six months or a year after purchasing and installing a product is great, but we had this hood installed when we remodeled our kitchen in 2001! It is now 2017 and we are remodeling again and plan to reinstall the hood with our new cabinets. It is quiet, ventilates perfectly and provides great lighting. I love this hood, it is an exceptional value with a timeless design!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very efficient product. An attractive addition to our kitchen. We replaced an old Broad-Nutone under cabinet hood that had served us well for many years. This lovely stainless steel appliance blends in beautifully with our other new stainless steel appliances that we recently purchased. Very easy to clean. We are very pleased with this product.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nutone Range Hood. This is great product and a huge improvement over our old Range Hood. The fan is better and the light is much brighter. It also looks great.

  • Light went out, cannot remove it.

    I am having extreme difficulty removing the bulb from the socket. I even tried to remove the filter and access the bulb this way, but nothing is working. I can't replace the bulb now. Why is it not coming out easily? It will twist to the left and to the right, but both directions seem to tighten it.
    Asked by: JB
    I have the same problem but here is how I fix it: (** first find a way to unplug the power for the unit just to be on the safe side **) 1. Unscrew the 5 screws at the front, then you should be able to take the front (light) panel off. 2. Disconnect the electric cable plug (pretty easy to unplug, just need to use a bit more force) 3. Put in some WD-40 right at the gap between the bulb and the socket , so it will lubricate the screwing area (it's because the oil grease made it stuck) 4. Unscrew it by turning it counter-clockwise. Now you are should be good! I will also unscrew the other bulb, put it in the socket you're replacing (and it should light up) so to make sure the socket is indeed working.

    Why does only one side of the light panel now work?

    Changed out the light bulbs for a cooler version and now only one side of the light panel now work? We have changed the bulbs several times and removed the light panel to make sure that all of the wiring was still in tact and still connected.
    Asked by: MJK123
    Thank you for your question on the WS130BC. It is possible that one of the light sockets is defective, but please check one thing first. Some of the light bulb manufacturers are shortening the necks of their light bulbs and when they are placed in certain fixtures, the neck isn’t long enough to get to the bottom of the socket. If this is not happening with yours, please contact our Technical Service Department at 888-336-6151

    Filters

    Can I use charcoal filter and have this duct to outside?
    Asked by: Shawn
    Thank you for your question on the model WS130SS range hood. The charcoal filter is normally used when the unit is installed as non-ducted, but there would not be a problem using the aluminum mesh grease filter and the charcoal filter when the unit is installed ducted to the outside.

    how do you reset the filter warning light on the control panel

    Asked by: lowelife
    Thank you for your question on the model WS130AA range hood. The WS130AA does not have a filter warning light. The WS3 series does have a “Filter Change Indicator” light. The light above “filter” will come on when it is time to clean your grease filters or check your non-ducted filters. After replacing the cleaned, or new filters, press the “filter” button to turn off the indicator light.

    I just installed ws130bl range hood but the fan not working?

    Asked by: Chris
    Thank you for your question on the model WS130BL range hood. If the light is working, it would appear to be wired properly. I would check to see if there is something may have been bent in shipping or installation that may be binding the blade. If nothing is binding the blade, check to see that the motor is completely plugged into its socket. If it is plugged in properly and the motor appears to be bad, please return it to the place of purchase for a replacement.
