Fan stopped after 4.5 years!

published

Off to purchase a new rangehood as after 4.5 years of purchasing this Westinghouse rangehood it just stopped working. I've been told it's cheaper to buy a new one than call a repair guy out but very disappointed in the quality of Westinghouse these days.. no where near the quality as years before..

Date PurchasedSep 2012

Gets the job done.

published

We wanted a half decent fairly cheap exhaust fan and this is certainly that. It works pretty well considering I mostly have 4 cooktop burners running at the same time. It's not too noisy even when it's on full, it's very easy to use with 3 options; light only, low fan or high fan.

Date PurchasedMay 2017

Noisy!

published

This is the worst rangehood as we can't have a conversation in the same room. Is in house we have moved into. Sounds like an extremely loud vacuum cleaner. Will have to replace as driving us crazy. No external controls and lights blow easily. Not happy and wont be buying this brand again.

Good piece of gear for the kitchen with a warning!

published

Had this unit installed after previous Chef unit died, went into the old spot near perfect fit, but had to trim cabinet doors above by 7mm. Works well with pre-existing venting to the outside and had no issues, looks good too. However note: be extremely careful cleaning the washable filters. The metal edges on them are very thin-like razor blades, I sliced the top of a finger severely while washing them. That will not happen again because next time I will be properly cautious.

Still can't believe this. Recirculators, beware!

An inexpensive satisfactory replacement, but be aware of vent settings and carbon filter requirement

Happy with this 6 years on. Nice and neat, bright light and I found it easy to dismantle to clean when needed.

Front rusted within 2 years

published

We purchased this rangehood to install on our newly renovated kitchen. We always have it on whilst the cook top is in use. It is a noisy appliance however within 2 years of it being installed the front panel and underneath have this horrible looking rust on it. Looks terrible against our beautiful kitchen. I know stainless steel polish is a no no for stainless steel appliances but I don't know how to get rid of it.

NOISE

published

After 3 yrs of going deaf with this re-circulating exhaust fan my visiting brother who could not stand the noise checked it out and discovered that the front cover plate which should only be left on for a fan exhausting to the outside atmosphere had not been removed (obviously oversight by installer, but how many others don't work due to this reason?). I had wondered why the filters had never got dirty - reason being the product has never worked for the purpose it should have. That made it work at last however did not address the noise problem. Still sends us deaf. I bought it because I'd had one before and it was good but I'm put off for future purchases.
Reliable, inexpensive
Horrible noise, you can't watch tv or have a conversation

Does not work

published

Purchased from Good Guys some 1 and half years ago put into a new kitchen, has not worked for 6 months except the lights that still operate. When working was very noisy, the fan speed did not differ as I retracted the hood. Until now until I came across this site, did not realise they have a 2 year warranty
Looked good for the price
When was working very noisy, no change in speed

very noisy

published

After 3 years we have had this model I am going out to buy another brand, it sounds like a jumbo jet when on, I don't mind noise but gee this thing is loud. I only use the fan when I have too and mainly use the light on it, so another winning product I have bought from Westinghouse, we will also be replacing our Westinghouse oven and cooktop, that are also 3 years old, with the ariston brand as they seem to have the quality Westinghouse no longer seems to care about, its a pity another big company in Australia has lost sight of quality and is peddling the same old muck you can buy at Bunnings. Very disappointed we wasted our money on their product.
looked good & well known brand
really noisy

Impressions

We have bought the above model from Good Guys and yes the Range hood is noisy, but since it has been installed today...yet to be tested completely. One globe is busted and needs replacement and also I read on the web-site that this comes with 2 years Warranty, but the Invoice does not indicate this. Can someone please confirm the Warranty and also where I need to buy the globe replacement.

Wish it was low in noise level

Update: One light globe has recently popped. It tripped the circuit breaker, and left black stuff all over the socket. We are concerned about replacing the light globe, due to safety issues...

Questions & Answers

Angela G.

Angela G.asked

Hi, is there someway I can dismantle my range hood to clean the runners?
My husband cooks with oil and one side gets clogged up and is very hard to get clean so it’s hard to pull out when in use.
P.S I don’t know the model as it’s 8yrs old.
Thanks

WRH608IS

Hi I am looking for a replacement Rangehood for my house, I currently have a Westinghouse WRH608IS installed which has been nothing but trouble since the day it was installed. The issue we have had is that the slider catches and sticks in random spots which then means we can't use the fan properly as the speed switches don't release.
What models can I buy to replace this one?

Not sure what model but my Westinhouse 60cm slideout style rangehood bought 5yrs ago at Good guys at present is working OK. Been cleaning it lately and noticed the light is still on even when not in use (rangehood was slided in after cooking). I may have touched something while cleaning? Can anyone advice how to turn the light off as I cannot locate the switch?
