  • The WS3 Range Hood is over 50% quieter than the average hood and delivers brilliant halogen lighting to your cook top. This smart hood is equipped with a delay-off feature and a filter change indicator to improve ventilation effectiveness. Soft-touch controls and a non-stick coating on the bottom cover make it smooth and easy to clean. This hood’s quiet nature is due to its high-performance centrifugal blower. You’ll be able to carry on a conversation while cooking and you won’t miss out on the juicy details.

    • Powder-coated finish in black is durable, easy to clean and will be a perfect match to your black appliances
    • Monochromatic black controls blend with hood for a clean, neat appearance
    • 30” width to fit with like-size, standard cook tops and cabinetry. Proper sizing provides effective ventilation
    • Rated at 0.4 sones on Normal speed, the WS3 is over 50% quieter than the typical range hood in its class. The powerful 430 CFM fan provides superior ventilation and you won’t have to turn up the volume to hear your favorite song while cooking
    • Four-speed, soft-touch controls with LED indicators give you convenient command of Normal, Mid, High and Boost fan speeds. Use the quiet, Normal, setting for average cooking conditions and switch to Mid, High or Boost 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 three 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 BPSF30, sold separately)
    • Filter Change Indicator light lets you know when it is time to clean your grease filters
    • Delay-off setting allows the blower to operate for ten minutes then stops automatically. It will allow extra blower time after you leave the cook top to ensure complete ventilation
    • Heat Sentry™ feature detects excessive heat and adjusts blower speed to high automatically. This smart feature protects and prolongs the life of your range hood
    • Easy installation with keyhole mounting slots, connector/backdraft dampers and four ducting options provide simple flexibility

  • WS330BL is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 4.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does the Job This replaced a similar, but builder-grade model. The swap-out was simple, and went glitch-free, using the same attachment points. Pros: (1) Lowest speed is very quiet and does the job for most cooking. (2) Top speed is noisier, but will definitely deal with any serious smoke. (3) It is easy to clean. (4) The automatic speed regulator works as advertised, and is more useful than you might think. Cons: (1) Instructions for converting from unvented (as shipped) to vented installation are confusing (Had to rely on a private YouTube video). The factory-provided baffle that you install to make the conversion did not give a good seal, making the hood whistle in operation (Solved with duct tape). (2) A spring-loaded vent flap sometimes vibrates annoyingly. (3) The push-button controls are a bit small: Rockers would be better.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Product has many features but not all the features work or work well. I paid about a hundred dollars extra for the Heat Sentry System. We have know indication that it works. It never activated no matter what burnt on the stove. It does not work. Try to make use of the warranty. So far that does not work either.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVE it!!!!! We really do LOVE this hood fan! Bought it to replace the one that came with this house. We always hated having to turn the old one on. It sounded like a rocket taking off, that was on the lowest setting. You can only imagine what it sounded like if you had to go higher. In the one year we still had up, I think it was turned on a couple times & ONLY if we REALLY NEEDED it. IMAGINE...We actually can turn this hood fan while cooking, like your supposed to do! We can still have a conversation or hear what else is going on while you are cooking. The only setting that is even sort of loud is the "Burn" setting. But you still only use that when you burn something & only for a few seconds. Even that setting is quieter than the low setting on our old "rocket engine". The "Delay" button is also a nice option on this hood fan. There must be some kind of sensor in this one somewhere. It will actually turn itself on or increase, if needed. It has done that for me a couple times during a self-cleaning cycle on my oven. HANDY!! The lights are really good. I do like being able to select my light level, with more than just high or low. Especially since we leave it on the lowest setting over night, as a "night light" in the kitchen. It cleans really easy too! It even tells you when your filters need to be cleaned. Another bonus, the filters can just be in the dishwasher!! All in all, we are really very happy with our purchase of our Allure hood fan! I have already recommended this hood fan to numerous people & will of course continue to recommend. Thank you!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good product. It works well and looks great. The product was somewhat difficult to install. However, it works well and looks great. It blends well with our new oven. The lights could be more recessed since they are blinding to look at by short people like my wife.

  • Can the three level dimmer work with LED bulbs?

    Can I use dimmable LED bulbs with this model or will it cause issues with the lighting or even damage the bulb?
    Asked by: steven1234
    I tried LED light bulbs and they lit up fine but stuck out too far and were unsightly and blinding. Sadly, I had to use the hot halogen bulbs.

    Can this hood be used with existing downdraft duct work?

    We are replacing our electric cook top with existing down draft duct work to the outside and would like to install a gas cook top with a hood. My thought would be to run the hood duct work through the wall down to the existing duct work that resides in the cabinet under the cook top. Is this even possible? Is there a limit to the number of elbows that one can use? Can flexible duct work be installed?
    Asked by: JBL
    Thank you for your question on the model WS330BL range hood. Using 3-1/4” x 10” rigid rectangular duct work, you can run the ducting up to 14 feet straight. You would need to reduce that distance by seven feet for every elbow installed.

    Replacement model for WS1

    Planning to change the range hood, currently we have allure ws1 (ducted) and would like to have more powerful range hood. Could you please recommend some models which can be installed in place of WS1. The spec. (height width etc) should be exactly same.
    Asked by: DP
    Thank you for your question on the model WS1 range hood. If you need more air movement, you may want to look at the WS2 or the WS3 series range hoods.

    How do I disable heat sensor?

    Which Vent Damper Will I Need for This Range Hood?

    The vent damper on my old range hood is integrated with the fan assembly unit and therefore I can't reuse my old vent damper. Which vend damper do you recommend for this unit? I assume I need a 7 inch damper to integrate it into the WS330WW and my 7 inch vent pipe system. The big box local stores don't carry a damper I could use; they only carry 6 and 8 inch dampers. Appreciate your help!
    Asked by: Juan
    Thank you for your question on the model WS330WW range hood. We do sell two 7” duct dampers, model BP87 (gravity damper) and the 97 (spring loaded damper). You can get these through any of our distributors.
