The Kenmore 54840 professional style under-cabinet range hood brings back a classic look that other range hood manufacturers have forgotten about. Set to fit snugly above your stove top, tucked neatly between your cabinetry, the Kenmore 54840 is the perfect fit for the discerning chef—professional or otherwise. Its beautiful 22-gauge stainless steel chassis and sharp, clean lines make the Kenmore 54840 a modern classic that won’t soon be forgotten.

The Kenmore 54840 is powered by dual internal centrifugal blowers that produce an impressive 850 CFM of ventilation power. Smoke, grease vapor, pungent odors and heat are gracefully whisked away by the 54840’s powerful exhaust system, giving you complete control over your kitchen. For as powerful as the Kenmore 54840, it only produces 10.0 Sones when operating at peak performance, making it a good choice for those who’d rather listen to music or carry on a conversation while they prepare food. Kenmore includes industry standard stainless steel baffle filters on the 54840 models. The filtration system is easy to access and the filters are dishwasher safe, making hood maintenance and filter cleaning as simple as it can possibly be. With a bucket of hot water and a mild detergent, such as dish soap, you can cleanse your hood’s grease screens in short order.

A conveniently located rotary knob control panel hidden directly beneath the Kenmore 54840’s outer faceplate gives you access to fan speeds, heat lamp control and lighting options. A blower speed memory program allows you to save your favorite settings. Kenmore has also included patented Heat Sentry technology in the 54840, keeping you safe from extreme temperatures and deadly smoke. If the Heat Sentry sensor detects an unacceptable increase in the temperatures arising from your stove top, it automatically engages the blower to clear the room of potentially harmful fumes and heat.
