Electrical design fault - avoid
The switch circuit board burnt out after 3 years, Got a new part under warranty but had to arrange an electrician myself to solder it in. One year later the same thing happened. I agree with the other reviewer. The circuit board just can't cope.
Also, the incandescent lights bulbs blow frequently. Our previous range hood had fluorescent lights that lasted years.
The unit lasted for 3 years and 6 months only. We used to clean the filters on a regular basis. Last week the whole unit stopped working as the main switch to the unit failed. The switch needs to come from over the east and plus the cost of the electricians made us to buy a brand new unit (different brand). There is no parts available in WA. Not good.
Good for all
It'll be 2 years in Oct 15 since we bought this product. It is functioning well for 95 % of use. It is a little noisy ( 64 Db) and doesn't quite cut it with any grilling of steaks as there is smoke overflow. Resolution is to use the back burners but this is not always possible. Got a good review in Choice Magazine. Extraction rate according to Specs is 525m3/hr
October 2019. 6 years in and still going strong. Can't ask for more .
