We investigate the dynamical instability of the two-dimensional quantum black hole model considered by Lowe in his study of Hawking evaporation. The model is supposed to express a black hole in equilibrium with a bath of Hawking radiation. It turns out that the model has at least one instability mode for a wide range of parameters, and thus it is unstable.
