Love it! Quiet and Powerful...
Purchased this rangehood when we built our house over 7 months ago now. Has not missed a beat and is extremely quiet! We usually just run it on speed 3 and that is more than enough to extract all smoke and odour. Got it with the 1600 m3/hr motor option which is perfect!
Be very careful. I bought the above rangehood....called one of Schweigen's recommended installers...bottom line, he came and put 4 screws in, took original flue to get an extension made.......by text said I had to pay him even more money (over 3k by this time) then by text, he cancelled it due to ill health, kept my $500 deposit....reckons he sent the flue back 11 days ago....still don't have it.......I contacted Schweigen, they asked for an email documenting dealings with installer.....which I sent...they said they'd call me back....haven't he...ard anything...and the fellow I was dealing with wouldn't return my calls.....now The Good Guys are following up for me.....watch this space! If Schweigen come to the party, I will surely sing their praises....however, be careful with the installers.
Like a Jet engine in your kitchen
This is the worst product that we ever got, and all it ends up with is lots of stress. If you are on a 2 storey home and want to go with something quiet, think really really hard about it. If an installer said, you can still do it by mounting it on the side, tell them to read this review first.
* Installer (Schweigen certified) - "I have installed many of these before, and we can just put the exhaust outside on the wall. You will hear some noise, as it is wall mounted, but it will not be much." Guess what? It's too noisy.
* Builder -...Middleman. Can't really do much about it. "Adjustment to house at this stage of the build to pipe it to the roof will not be cost effective for the installation of the rangehood." However, we told you this is going to be the rangehood from the start. * Seller - They did not follow the instructions, so you cannot return it. Never mind the fact that it was installed by a Schweigen certified installer in the first place. * Schweigen - ditto. We certify installers. If they make mistakes, it's not our issue. We have a book they should have read first that have all those instructions. Maybe you should get the installer to check with you first?
Great - finally, can cook in peace
Old rangehood used to drive me bonkers with its awful roaring fan that was useless at extracting air.
Schweigen takes the fan out of the kitchen and puts it up on the roof where it belongs (and where you don't have to listen to it). It sucks away all cooking fumes, even with smoking hot wok cooking. Very happy with this!
Looks great, clean minimal styling, v energy efficient, easy to clean stainless filters in dishwasher, LED lights excellent for cook top.
Costs more than most competitors, but well worth it because it actually works.
Questions & Answers
What is the price?
I have a WM2190S Schweigen Rangehood.
Suction on maximum (5) is very poor. Filters are spotless and I have checked that the outlet is open. Any suggestions please?
Without knowing more, I'm wondering whether there is an obstruction in the flue pipe.
Possible obstructions include 'denting' of flexible pipe (ie. reducing diameter), something left inside the pipe (eg. plastic sheeting, cardboard box, etc.)
If there are no obstructions, then I'd be contacting the supplier / installer.
