Blanco poor quality
Filters don't work particularly well. I clean the filters regularly, yet lots of oil still gets through. Oil goes through the filter and covers the fan motor. When you slide the rangehood back in it leaves a pool of oil on the top surface where the oil accumulated on the fan drips down.
The light lense cover is made from cheap, brittle plastic. Broke the the lugs off the first time I removed it to replace a light bulb. Around $40 for a replacement.
I purchased a Blanco kitchen appliance deal because of the name - thought th...ey had a good reputation. Maybe one day they did make good quality components, but they are now junk. Oven has been nothing but trouble, rangehood falling apart, cooktops ok, dishwasher ok. I'd never buy Blanco again.
Bought two 60cm BRST60X Slideout rangehoods. One stopped working recently and went on the review and thought the same had occurred with one of ours. When we pulled the rangehood out and further investigated we found the capacitor had failed rather than anything else. Replaced the capacitor for $19 and is working like a treat now. Capacitor can be bought from a normal electrical place - I went to Ferntree Gully electrical appliances repairs. However, take pictures as you pull apart so that you can get all back together. We didn't but luckily we have two side by side so were able to remove the other one and copy. So could be just a simple part.
