Do You Own a VENT A HOOD Exhaust Hood Over Your Stove??

While i can't comment on the cleaning i will say that I am equally disappointed with VAH. It was the most expensive piece of equipment we bought for our kitchen and we have already had three service calls in less than a year. The first was for the dual speed motor, vibrating and noisy at low speed, the second was for the same reason, the third was for the same reason and now we have to have them service it for the fourth time!
My belief is that the dual speed motor simply does not mechanically work for any length of time. I think that the governor malfunctions as it creates an oscillating sound along with excessive vibration.
Again this is a brand new unit and really hasn't been used all that much.
Any comments?
