Poor service and hidden costs

published

Silent and powerful function but when it comes to service within warranty period, they tell us to check the rooftop motor for wasps, get an electrician and pay from pocket. Shocking!

Great. Very quite and works really well

This is totally worth the money. No cooking smells in the house, very quite and the lights are fantastic. Really easy to use. I would recommend this to anyone upgrading their kitchen.

Happy customer!

published

Purchased this 90cm undermount from Harvey Norman back in Jan 2010. It hasn't missed a beat and does the job of removing all odours from our cooking, given that we cook a lot of curries. It had halogen GU10 globes which I have replaced with LED'S from Bunnings. Many of my friends have also gone and purchased same model to install at their home. Would recommend it highly.

The 1600 motor Schweigen is so good we're buying it again for our new house.

published

We've had the current one for 4.5 years. It's been incredibly reliable and outstanding in keeping the curry, stir fry and burnt toast smoke outside. But just a hint.. we have the 900mm range hood on a 600mm induction stove. I have to hold a tissue up to show friends when it's on the highest setting.. They don't believe it can be that powerful and quiet!. And yes.... we were very careful how it was installed - the piping, sizing and no kinks!

Purchased in at Bing Lee Physical store for $2,000.

Runs like a dream

published

We installed this in our apartment. We previously had a very noisy and ineffective rangehood. This is seriously silent and highly effective. Living in an apartment it is so important to have an effective fan. Apparently they are even more effective for houses but it works really well in our apartment. We love being able to have a conversation without being drowned out by noise. We generally run it on 2 which seems to be enough. If cooking fish or meat, we do run it on 4. There is really nothing to complain about and we'd definitely recommend it to anyone!

Malfunctioned after 3.5-years

published

Have had the range hood for three and a half years, and was a good fan (although the power settings a tad non-linear and not quite as silent as advertised, but this could be due to installation type). Recently however, it has been turning itself on full blast at arbitrary times. Once it gets into this mode it keeps switching itself on until power is removed from the unit. Need to leave the whole thing switched off during the night so as not to be disturbed. Would not expect this from a nearly new and relatively expensive appliance.

Purchased in at Harvey Norman Online for $1,453.

As Good As It Gets

published

We have had our Schweigen for 2 years now and have no regrets about paying a little more. It fulfils everything they claim . It`s super silent and extraordinarily efficient . We opted for the S2 motor at 900M3/hr as the roof outlet is not directly overhead . Fantastic appliance .

Powerful and quiet

published

This rangehood meets the key criterion for our purchase - it is very quiet. So quiet that you need to make sure you do not accidentally leave it on. We got the SP motor as we do a lot of Asian cooking, and it has enough grunt to whip out all the steam and smells. We were slightly concerned as we mounted the unit at a height lower than recommended (60cm rather than the 70cm suggested for an induction cooktop) but so far there is no problem with condensation (which the height apparently helps dissipate). It is very expensive though.

Awesome

published

When I was looking at appliances for our new home the sales bloke took me on a tour of rangehoods, extractor fans etc stopping last of all at the Schweigen. It's super quiet, the motor is on the outside of the house, 5 speed settings, pulls apart easy for cleaning and very bright lights so you can see what you're doing while cooking. The whole time we were chatting I didn't realise the thing was even turned on to the highest setting. It is so quiet that I sometimes forget to switch it off. The price tag is pretty hefty but our house has a raked ceiling open plan living/kitchen/dining area which can get noisy. I'm glad we spent the extra coin on getting this as anything else would have driven us around the bend.

Quiet and effective

published

We bought the schweigen undermount rangehood for our 600mm gas cooktop. We are very happy its performance. The rangehood makes very little noise even at the highest setting and prevents any build up even though we do heavy cooking including frying and indian naans etc.- We have the 1600m3 fan on the rooftop. No complaints so far.

For the first time, a range hood that WORKS and is SILENT

published

I have remodelled a few kitchens over the years and have never been happy with the range hoods so this time I decided to seek advice about the most effective type to install. Overriding advice was that I needed at least 900cfm airflow and a remote motor/fan to keep the noise down. I bought the Schweigen unit with the motor mounted on the roof. It is so silent we sometimes forget that it is working but it extracts smoke, steam and odours in a most satisfying manner. Can't speak highly enough of it but if I did it again, I would get the higher airflow twin-motor unit. Noise is not a consideration as the motors are on the roof at least 5 metres way from the kitchen. The silence is BLISS.

Silent UM1170 Series

Hi,
We had a Schweigan rangehood installed, it is vented in the roof as we don't have eaves.

We live in a windy area and we get a significant amount of noise (when the unit is off) coming down the tubing. So much so that it sounds like it is turned on.

Is there a solution to this? The irony is that we bought this unit to be quiet.

Thanks,
Ben

Is this also quiet on the outside of the property?

No. The motor sits outside to transfer the noise outside. Ours is on a wall near our laundry and you can hear it if the laundry door is open.
