Professional delivery and installation is available for every product we sell. We would be happy to coordinate delivery and installation for you.

Extended warranties are usually very inexpensive and can save you thousands in the future. Some can even cover extra costs that result, such as cost of food that spoils when your fridge dies. It's simple and inexpensive to purchase extended warranties and one of the smartest ways to protect your investment.

Appliances can be large, heavy and expensive. You probably don't have the special tools or expertise needed to fix them in a crisis. If you can spare a few thousand dollars without batting an eyelash for new appliances should they break tomorrow, don't buy a warranty. But if you're like most of us, protect yourself by purchasing inexpensive extended warranties when you buy a new product and save yourself big money in the long run.

Unable to find a replacement filter

Dsalazarm 8/4/2020

We built a new house and selected all Frigidaire/Electrolux appliances. We washed the filter a few times but it got damaged, now we are unable to find a replacement that fits.

Nice look

Shawnee79 5/22/2020

So I purchased my home in Jan of 2020 and it was already in placed by the builder. I love the look of it....works nicely. The light bulbs went out pretty quick I think.....I've only been in the home a few months and had to replace them. And one of the buttons popped off the front.... I actually need to see what to do about that.....but I do like the look of the stainless steel and that it has 3 settings for the fan....

Poor Quality of Fan buttons and Lights

Naresh 5/4/2020

We replaced this Range hood previously as the halogen bulb was not turning on and once the warranted ended not the buttons are popping out and one of the halogen bulbs is turning on. Looks like based on all reviews other users also having same issues. Not sure if something can be with out warranty.

Fan Speed Buttons failure

Reneplante 4/11/2020

Our FHWC3640MS Range Vent hood is useless. The 3 buttons that control the speed have all broken and fallen inside the unit. I called Frig/Electrolux and they said any service would have to be paid for. My answer is to find another nonFrig supplier. Also the replacement filter for this junk comes apart on the sides and has to be tucked back in. Also this so called Stainless Steel hood is rusting at the seams.

Missing control buttons

LynnC 2/1/2020

Control buttons are junk. The same problem as many below have stated. First they pop off and when you try to re-insert to screw back on they fall inside. I only have the lowest setting button left, along with the light and on/off button. Is there a way to remove the panel to get into the unit to screw them back on properly?

Troublesome push-button controls

roduke 1/21/2020

The push-buttons pins on this junk keep popping out when pressed. With the last pop-out, I tried reinserting the in pin through the now-vacant hole and it fell loosely inside the hood. Now I have no button for mid-level fan, and I don't see any easy way to gain access to the inside of the hood. It's just a button and you couldn't engineer a better solution than this?

Sleek and easy to install

katinstl 12/31/2019

Great hood, performs as advertised. Not too loud, lighting is very good over the stove. The laser cut plastic covering was a bit of a pain to get off, but the install was quick and easy. Nice to have the option to vent outside or recirculate. Happy with our purchase so far!

Awful Button Design

CJ CJ 6/1/2019

This unit came builder-installed in my house. The actual performance of the unit is decent. The major problem with the vent hood is the control buttons. There are 3 speed buttons and an OFF button. When you push a speed button, that button stays depressed until you press another speed button or the OFF button, at which time the previously depressed button pops back out. When pressing another button, you must hold your finger over the depressed button that is about to pop out because that button WILL fly completely out of the unit, which is really annoying. What's worse is that when trying to fish the buttons back into place they are really easy to accidentally lose in the unit as you blindly search for the peg it is supposed to slide onto. I have now lost 2 buttons inside my vent hood that are impossible to recover without disassembly of the unit.Even worse, still, is the fact that Frigidaire will not sell you individual replacement buttons to replace the ones hopelessly lost in your design-flawed vent hood. They will only sell you the entire control board with all buttons for somewhere around the cost of a completely new unit. If you want a trouble-free vent hood made by a customer-service oriented company that stands behind it's products, look somewhere else.

Light Bulbs out

RAJs 12/9/2018

Brought it over 2 months and both light bulbs are out. I am searching for online manual and can't find the English version of this model. Can you please share the English version and also video if possible on how to replace the bulb. I need the details about what type of Bulb I need to purchase and how to replace it as customer support doesn't want to send anybody to replace the bulb.

Average (OK)

Srini K 10/29/2018

It's been 2 months I have been using this new range hood. Bulbs went away in a month and I found LED replacement in HomeDepot and I replaced it. Cons:I feel the fan and light switches are cheaply made. Mesh is very delicate and we have to very carefully with it. Pros:Looks wise is sleek and good. I have not seen any issue with functioning. LED lights are bright and that's very helpful.

KarenD 7/19/2018

This was part of our new home build. It seems to work well so far and is easy to clean. The light is strong, which is good for seeing to clean the cooktop, although it does get pretty warm after just a few minutes.

Very nice but a little loud

Lrmacful 6/21/2018

It was part of a package that came with my new house, and so far so good. It does sucks in the smoke or vapors from whatever you're cooking. The lighting on it is amazing. The down side of it, is that it's a little loud when you put it on number 2. When you go to number 3, I really have to turn my tv very loud since my house has an open concept living room and kitchen. Another thing I wasn't a fan of are the very old fashioned push buttons that make that loud sound when you press them down. It there's an "on/off" button that I don't understand. To turn it on, all you have to do is push one of the numbers. To turn it off, you do have to use the off button that says "on/off". So really, the "on/off" button should really be an "off" button. I would recommend it to someone if they don't really mind the loud fan sound. I don't really mind it, but it's kind of annoying sometimes.

A Perfect Fit

Lil Ol Me 6/25/2017

With limited space available and having looked a dozen options I chose the Frigidare Range Hood for it's size and looks. The only problem I encountered was in the mounting stage. The position of the holes for mounting were too close to the cabinet edge and the screws provided were too small to hold the hood in place. Other than that the hood works and looks beautifully.

WORST Range Hood

Totally Unhappy 9/30/2016

Bought this range hood a couple of years ago for a kitchen remodel, but we didn't install it until the warranty was almost up. Within a couple of uses, the buttons started popping out, and shortly thereafter, two buttons fell into the unit. We have tried to access the fallen buttons by taking out the filter and trying to pop off the plastic end caps to no avail. Not only is it a total eyesore to have gaping holes where there should be buttons, but we can't change the fan speed on the unit because there is only one button remaining. As others have mentioned, a replacement control panel will cost about $160-$190. This unit is a piece of junk. Do NOT waste your money.

RCoppell 9/15/2016

Looks nice, appears to clear the air adequately , however the on off switches for the fan make a "clang" sound when turning off. A screw driver is needed to remove the filter screen which means removing the screen for cleaning will be complicated.

Faulty control buttons

Hynek 8/21/2016

We purchased this unit in April 2016; it was installed shortly thereafter. Within two months, the on/off button completely popped out of the unit. We had it repaired under the Frigidaire warranty. It appears to be working properly

Easy to clean filter

ranbirm 6/19/2016

Most of the dishes I prepare are South Asian - Indian cuisine. That means, there is a lot of spices, careful roasting of veggies in oil etc. The kitchen chimney's filter therefore is an important aspect of my gourmet kitchen. Thank fully, the kitchen filter I have is easily detachable and can be cleaned in the dishwasher anytime.

house 7/1/2015

Selected this one because it was quite compact and powerful. Like the features but in less than a year the push buttons broke - pushed in, wouldn't come out. Frigidaire fixed with out any cost to us, but I do wonder whether something else will break. For now, working well.

Looks great! Powerfull vent motor.

Shakey Jake 6/8/2015

I bought this a week ago to replace my old 42 inch Ventline Range hood. Be aware this range hood is a little heavy and is not just thin metal sticking out in front of the cabinet so check the material your cabinets are made of on the bottom. Mine were made out of thin veneer (manufactured home) and the screws pulled right out when the weight was placed on them. I had to reinforce the bottom of the cabinet. Once that was done the range hood installed easily. The halogen lights turn the cook top to day. You can barely hear the vent motor on low but I could feel the air coming out of the vent five feet away. on high you can definitely hear the motor but it is not bad and it will suck all the smoke from that burned bacon right out of the house.
