Nice!
This replaced my 30+ year old vented hood. My old hood never worked well 15 years ago when we bought the house, but it moved some air. My wife liked this hood because of the wrap around design from the top to the underside. It will be easy to keep clean, unlike cheaper models, or our old one. I liked it because it moves 200 cfm and is rated as being quiet. I have a 5 inch tv on the counter next to my stove. I spend a lot of time cooking for our family and it is hard to hear Judge Alex over a loud exhaust fan. This one is much more quiet. I can hear the tv fine, and talk on the phone as well. I am very satified. We have not had it long, so I am not sure of the durability yet. If it breaks, I will let everyone know. It was money well spent. It was easy to install too. I never installed one before, and it went in smoothly.

Kenmore 30" Updraft Range Hood 5261 is a ripoff

I bought this electric range hood from Sears.  I was quite disappointed with their customer service.  After I bought it I found out I needed to buy a filter for non-ducted installation.  No one at Sears told me I needed to buy a filter.  I went back to Sears the next day and a salesman pointed out to me the filters I needed.  It turned out the filters were the wrong ones and didn't even fit my Kenmore hood.  I went back a third time only to find out Sears does not carry the filter I needed and was told to call a 1-800 #.   After calling Sears, the filters cost me a total of&******** plus two 50 watt Halogen lights which were not included.  They were priced at Sears for $19.99 each.  I ended buying them at ******* for $7.50 each.  So don't be fooled, you'll need to add $75 to the $155 sales price.  Oh, and by the way, did I mention $120 you need to get it installed.  What a huge ripoff!!!!!

Range Updraft Vent

One of the best range hood vents purchased over the years. Sleek design and extremely quiet during operation. I also like the night light option; low light yet bright enough to illuminate the nearby area. Great choice after returning the lower grades option. Extremely satisfied with this purchase.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Excellent Purchase

I shopped several websites looking for a range hood that I liked. When I saw this one online I went into my local Sears stores to see it in person. It was just what I wanted so I purchased it for my kitchen. I love it!

Nice range hood

After having a microwave with exhaust fan this is a nice change as it is quieter that the micro with fan and much stronger. The stainless is easy to clean and the filters are much larger than the ones on the microwave ovens with the fan.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

In with the new!

Bought to replace the aging and much greasy old one as we also bought our first double oven and this model was all that we need at a fair cost at our Sears store. Well liked and well built.

Great little hood.

It was easy to install. We just had to do a few tweaks; but, it works great. The light is just the right amount of brightness and the fan takes care of smoke and most odors.

Defective wiring?

In about 18 months, this product started eating through light bulbs and now neither of the lights will work even with a brand new expensive bulb. I think the wiring is defective, but it is conveniently out of warranty. I will not have it replaced, but look for a better quality product. I have owned many many Kenmore products for the last 28 years of marriage and used to love them. Their quality has dramatically declined over the last 10 years or so. If you buy this product, add the extended warranty and don't let it expire :(

Works fine, difficult to install with pre-existing duct work

Halogen bulbs designed for the unit are bright but expensive at $20 each. Fan has good airflow. Installation was very difficult because the outflow duct needs to fit inside existing house duct. Lining it up simultaneous with lining up the wiring made it a real struggle.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

It's a stainless steel kenmore range hood. Motor noise is not to loud even in high speed mode. The filters are easy to service. The assembly and installatiion was straight forward and easy to understand. I installed it. I would buy this model again.

since this unit requires special light bulbs they should be included. We were not informed at the time of purchase that they were not included; therefore it was necessary for us to make a special trip just to purchase the bulbs.
