2 in 3 years.

They should last longer. Regularly blow light bulbs. 2nd one shorted out behind the switches causing sparks & small but brief flame. Lucky I have earth leakage circuit breakers. Costs an extra $100 to get electrician to fit on top of replacement costs each time. Have to consider another brand & possibly more expensive/better quality.

Total Rubbish

published

I bought this rangehood expecting it to last a lot longer.... Just out of warranty.. and goes bang!
I called Westinghouse to enquire about warranty and said it was too bad..and wanted to charge $145 for a technician to have a look..
I did expect a lot more from this product and Westighouse .
This product total rubbish and not worth buying even for $10...do not buy this product.
One star is too much.

Not bad for the price

published

Looks good with the stainless steel finish. Simple installation in the space left by a previous Westinghouse range hood (screw holes did not line up - but not a problem. Was 10mm deeper so it came below the top of the wall tiling. Again not a big issue. Three speeds, all reasonably low noise. Light has two globes so illuminates quite well. They should include the first set of Carbon filters - maybe even if Westinghouse were to plainly mark that that product is for recirculating conditions and charge the few extra bucks for the included filters???

Value For Money

published

I purchased this rangehood recently and it is ok I paid only $130.00 on special. The only thing I was disappointed is that the recirculated style needs a carbon filter as the instructions say it is recommended. It would have been ideal to purchase from the store as an upsell. Why dont they ask you if you will be ducted or recircultaed. Can someone tell me where they purchased the carbon filter and how easy is it to install, do you need to remove any parts. etc...Tks

Will suffice

published

Bought this rangehood, the single fan model, because after reading reviews of the twin fan models, the fact that they drown out the TV 3 doors up, made it an easy choice. The single fan is still fairly loud, possibly because it has 3 speeds unlike my old one that was only single speed. Happily the old one just dropped out after removing 4 screws (onto my nose), so i requested my neighbour to help put the new one in. Very easy to re-install, but you need one person holding the unit in place while someone screws in 4 screws...very happy ..so far

Does the job LOUDLY!

published

This exhaust fan was a reasonable price for a dual fan extraction. We liked that it had a recirculating option, it was easy to install. It's ticked all the boxes except for the noise. When it's on I feel like there's a car engine rumbling in my driveway- unfortunately it's not a car just a very loud exhaust fan. The light is good, it's easy to clean, filters are reasonably priced on ebay...once again it's noisy.

Not good

We've had this in our house from brand new, 1 week after the warranty ran out the lights blew and tripped the entire house out, after replacing the bulbs the rangehood still doesn't work. Really not happy!

Rubbish product and dangerous

published

Had it for just over an year and the light blew up with sparks and flames. I opened it up to have a look what had happened and the switch was completely burnt out! There was no sign of any grease or moisture in the circuit which may have caused a short. My conclusion is that it's a very badly/poorly engineered product. It should be taken off the market it will likely burn someones house down!

Decent budget rangehood

published

Had it about 6 mths. No problems to report. Nothing special. It does what you would expect a range hood to do.

Update: I have had the same RobinHood Rangehood for over a year now and no problems to report. No spark, no explosion and no power surge.

Send it back...if you call WH customer support they will probably aks all the usual questions... how old is the unit etc.. then if it's just out of warranty they will more than likely offer you a technician to come and fix it... parts are free but you pay for the call out $145.

Hello. We've removed our old rangehood. We're replacing it with the WRJ600UW. We are not using ducting for this installation. Upon opening the box, there is no fixed hole plugs covering the top or rear exhaust outlets. There were two plastic plugs which may be substitutes (?) for covering the top and rear exhaust outlets. These are not mentioned in the instructions that came with the unit.

The instructions refer to "fixed hole plugs" which we do not have. However, we do have two plastic plugs that may be intended for the top and rear exhaust outlets, but, there is no reference to them in the manual. If the two plastic plugs are intended to substitute, then this is not a simple "drop-out, drop-in" replacement. The plastic plug interferes with the unit being flush under the cabinet. How is this installed?

Am I missing something?

Oh.. I'm not sure.. I replaced it with an existing duct so for me the installation was straight forward. So it was flush under the cabinet but in the cabinet above it where the duct was.

Probably best to ask Westinghouse.

Sorry I can't be more help.

Cheers

Hi Bingle

Good questions. It has been a long time since I installed mine. I’ve had a look and my model is the WRJ600US but I dont know whether that makes a real difference. I seem to remember that there were two holes and at least one plug – maybe two (and it/these needed to be inserted). There also appears to be a lever which I assume it to divert from one direction of exhaust to another direction. I’ve thrown away the instructions.

No much help I’m sorry but I have a vague recollection it might have been only one hole covered ie the ducted one if you are NOT ducted.

My unit does appear to be flush to the underside of the recess.

Again my apologies. Sometimes it helps to have a drink and a think.

Regards

Tim

Thanks guys. I sent an email to Westinghouse/Electrolux, but, I think I got a somewhat automated message. It says:
"Thank you for your email. There should be two black plastic plugs that fit in the top and the rear.
Once this is done, you set the recirculation lever to recirculation. Hope this information assists you?
Kind regards, Tania Customer Service Representative"

You guys seemed to understand the content of my message, but, it seems Tania missed the point and provided
information that I already included in my question, thereby, making her answer null and void.

Thank you for taking the time to respond.
