We noted an earlier review that mentioned that the box was somewhat inadequate. We agree, but our unit did arrive undamaged, despite some dings in the cardboard.
To make installation easier, you remove the blower and motor assembly, so only the sheet-metal shell needs to be supported. After mounting is complete, the blower re-attaches easily and plugs in with a single connector. It does take two people, at least briefly, so one can support the unit while the other installs the first couple of screws.
The 893004 can exhaust from the top or the back. You remove a metal knockout for the one you want to use. It's intended to be hard-wired, with a knockout for a clamp to hold the electrical cable. When installed, the electrical connection is near the right end of the top rear of the unit. You supply the clamp for the knockout, depending what kind of cable is used in your home.
The installation took an hour or so. Replacing an existing vented hood, as we were, is relatively easy. If you must do the duct work to outside through the wall or ceiling, that's a considerably larger job. As with any task, planning and doing is easier, as they say, than doing and then planning and then doing!
The lamp sockets accept two regular bulbs (not supplied) of up to 75 watts. A three-position switch lets you turn on one or both lamps, but they are not dimmable beyond that. We used two 60-watt equivalent LED bulbs, which work well and save money over time.
If you're considering this hood, we recommend it. You can review the installation instructions beforehand, which I recommend, at the company website, [...] . While the Broan name is less-well-known than its sister brand, NuTone, it is a company that has been around a long time, and is likely to continue to be.
Warning: this hood is designed for through-to-the-roof venting and is kind of tricky to retrofit for an amateur DIY-er. (I wondered why the Broan site had so many vent-into-the-kitchen models... now we know...) It's heavy even with the blower out and in our installation was hard to fit into the ducting, which had enough play in it to slither about (but also enough to make it possible to install the new hood at all). There is a front panel on the old hood which hides a vent opening into the kitchen (didn't try to push it out on the new hood)-- why it's there at all I'm not sure.
I got this hood to replace one which was installed many, many years ago and caught grease vapor and frying odors from my true restaurant range's 26,000 BTU gas burners reliably and continuously. It has a two-position mechanical switch (no touch panels for anything) for the two lightbulbs, another two-part (one turns it on, the other adjusts the fan speed) mechanical switch adjusts fan levels from whisper to whoosh, and a sensor which turns the blower on automatically (to whoosh) when the air passing past it gets hot enough to wake it up. Grease vapors are caught by two large panels of aluminum mesh, quite scrubbable (but watch what you scrub with -- alkali dissolves aluminum). The semi-transparent plastic hood over the light bulbs is also cleanable, with difficulty.
Descriptions of this hood tend to make much of the fan switch's "memory" -- don't be fooled into thinking this iinvolves some electronic circuit board that would no doubt soon succumb to grease and heat -- as far as I can tell, it's a simple mechanical rheostat-type switch just like the one on the old hood. When you turn the blower off with the on-off switch, it doesn't involve the low-to-high speed switch at all so naturally the blower turns on at the speed the low-high part is set at.
Similarly, the "lo" and "hi" setting on the light switch just means that you can turn on one or both bulbs. With the new types of bulbs, you can put in a very small bulb on the low side and a quite bright bulb in the other socket, and have a night light in your kitchen as well as good lighting over the range top.
The only thing that made me replace this hood was that the light switch broke, and I'm pretty sure that was because the Roof Rats that live in our big old walnut trees pushed the cap off the ducting and chewed on it. It was, shall we say, quite obvious that they'd been visiting. Not likely to be a problem for most users.
The metal seems a little thinner over-all than the original. It doesn't seem cheap at all, but it did get bent a bit in a few places during installation (despite the warnings about how to lift it out of the box). The parts that got bent happened while the unit was being held in place during installation, not when it was being pulled out of the box. Note to Broan: the installer ignored what was written on the box and lifted it out exactly as the box warned not too. How about packing it in a way that does not require reading the box for proper removal, because I'm sure I did not have the first contractor that will not bother reading the box no matter how large you print the warning.
