I bought this rangehood because so many people write nice reviews about it. As Aisan, we do a lot of stir-fry at home so the powerful suction of this rangehood is very appealing to us. That is, if it is a good product.
However, the prodcut that we recieved has some major defects that made things really hard for us:
1. the top vent is supposed to be 7iinch round, yet it is distorted , almost oval shape that does not fit any duct we purchased from xxxxx. We have to try a number of things to get it to fit.
2. the sensor touch button does not work. If it is the halo light bulb, it would be an easy fix; however, the sensor touch feature is build-in unit and quite hard to replace or fix. Currently the light can only be turned on using the remote control.
We have contacted both overstock and Cavaliere customer service. Will see how this pans out and update the review.
I wish I can give five stars. The only reason I cannot is that operation is always confusing. You need remote to switch off this system (sometimes). There is no way come out from auto mode to manual. Otherwise, this is an excellent product.
We had very high expectation on this machine. It looks sleek, and claims 900 CFM. Perfect for a Chinese kitchen! We thought our dreams came true! However, after the installation, we instantly realized the fans were not powerful enough. We did a test by putting a nail-sized facial tissue paper under the hood (25" underneath), but the tiny piece of paer doesn't move! This was udner the highest fan speed (F4). Until I raised the paper within 1 inch under the fan, the machine finally sucked up the paper. We are so disspointed! I want a full refund!

Please tell us about the quality of the product. The airflow is weak.
How accurate was the on site description of the product? No, it doesn't seem to that the airflow is 900 CFM.
This fan weighed in around 55 pound so you need to be able to lift and lower a few times to get the screw locations as I did for under the cabinets mount. Right away there was a problem with the lights but Overstock sent me a new bulb and that was fixed.
The problem is that now that the fan has passed it's warranty period it seems to be developing a personality problem. A few months ago the fan started by itself around 4 am on F4 which is full force. The same thing happened the next morning. I called the distributor in Garden Grove and they want to sell me a new electronic control board (don't ask how much). So I decided to see if I could narrow down the problem. I put
the fan into its auto heat sensing mode (turns on by itself when a range of heat is sensed) and I stuck a piece of electrical tape over the infra
red remote control sensor. Went a few days without any problems so I took it off auto and went a few more days so I took the tape off. Great until yesterday afternoon when it started up on F1 all by itself. I had to use the remote to shut it off.

W bought the 42" version of this hood about a year ago because it was less than half the price of the U.S. made Thermador model. I figured it was probably made in China and sure enough it is. It does not appear to have either UL or CSA safety labs certifications like the Thermador does so you really donít know if the electrical or structural design has been done safely. It does look nice structurally but I donít know about its safety electrically. Because there has been no third party safety lab testing lab certification there may be a possibility to serious injury or death in using this appliance. Or there may not be. You just donít know and will need to put your trust in the hands on some Chinese manufacturer. Also, it has been my experience that the Chinese donít put enough chromium into the stainless steel they manufacture as a cost saving measure and as a result the metal will start to rust after awhile. It looks nice in the store but when you start using it in a wet environment it will start rusting. Stainless steel is not suppose to rust. I found this with both a stainless steel barbeque and patio heater we bought that were made in China. Our unit isn't showing any rust yet but it is not outdoors and we don't do a lot of steamy cooking to expose it to much moisture. The unit is not made totally from stainless steel. The top and back are made from galvanized steel. The fan motor in our unit is unbalanced and makes such a racket on the high speed we just never run it on high. Just be aware that you get what you pay for.

What is the difference between this one and the other similar one :http://www.overstock.com/Home-Garden/Cavaliere-Euro-30-inch-Under-cabinet-Range-Hood/3844985/product.html?productQuestionResponse=SUCCESS ?lunarlar on Feb 4, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
I have looked at these two products and as close as they are the difference is the size of the duct vent. This one is an 8 inch and your link is a 7 inch.
Have a great day!overstockcustomercare1 on Feb 6, 2013
Can you measure the deepth on the top of the vent hoover? I want to check if the top size matches our cabinet.lunarlar on Feb 4, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question

Does this fan vent form the back or top? I have to vent from the back of the fanzhus on Dec 6, 2012Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
That unit vents from the top. We only have one hood that vents from the back, and it is the UC200. Those are only 300 cfm, so a third as powerful as the AP238-PS13-30.overstockcustomercare1 on Dec 6, 2012
What is the weight of the product? I need to know if my cabinet can hold this. Thanks.aerohex1 on Oct 9, 2012Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
