Ceiling-Mounted and Under-Cabinet Hood Boost Turns Off Early


  • VC Ceiling-Mounted Hood boost feature does not last 10 minutes
  • VU Under-Cabinet Hood Insert boost feature ends early
  • Boost turns off too quickly


The boost function is turned on by pressing the fan with plus button on the remote.

  • If the unit is off, it will turn the unit on in boost mode when pressed.

The use and care guide says boost lasts for 10 minutes.

  • This is incorrect. The unit turns boost off after 6 minutes and goes back to the previous setting.
  • If the unit was off when boost was turned on, the unit will return to off after 6 minutes. It will not reduce speed to low, medium, or high.
  • Unit must be turned to low, medium, or high first in order for the unit to return to that setting after boost turns off.
