I have a stand alone stove that had an old style range hood with no
cabinet overhead. It no longer works and is old. Do they make a
standalone range hood? The ones I've seen Broan make is intended to
be mounted under a cabinet. Can they be mounted without one?
One option would be to put a shelf above the stove and mount a
standard hood below that. I lived in an apartment for a few weeks that
was set up like that. The hood could also be supported by brackets
from above the hood.
The "real" hoods are never mounted under a cabinet. You are not going to
find them at the BORG. Call a local kitchen place to find one.
They will cost a lot more than the $59 or so for the ones who blow the fumes
back in your face. They will carry those fumes outside the home. The more
expensive, and better ones will also supply "make up" air to balance the
outflow with an air intake. These are only for serious cooks.

Here's a very good wall-mount hood for you--the Spagna Vetro SV168F-30:
I can vouch for this model, having installed it for a client who was
very happy with it. It's sleek, very Euro, powerful, quiet, and not too
expen$ive ($410 from this place). Has nice electronic features like
adjustable illumination and fan timer. Costs more than the POSs made by
Broan, but worth it.
The phrase "jump the shark" itself jumped the shark about a decade ago.
