Listings for used range hoods can be found by using the search tools at independent seller websites, such as eBay, as well as used appliance retailers. With eBay, buyers are protected by the site's money-back guarantee. This promises to refund payments for purchases that were not received or not as described.
eBay also affords users extensive control over the relevance of their search for range hoods, allowing them to refine their search results by a number of factors including brand, location and price.
When buying range hoods without consulting a professional retailer, there are some considerations that people ought to keep in mind. The size of the range hood is of particular importance and should be wider than the range cooker by as much as 6 inches on either side. It is also worth asking sellers of used range hoods about the "sone" measure of their appliance. This will indicate how loud it is when in operation. 1 sone is about as loud as a low-volume refrigerator.
When buying a range hood previously used in a commercial kitchen, buyers should be aware that, regardless of their appearance, they may not function optimally. It is sensible to ask about the unit's age, condition and operational history.
