Re: baumatic hood bt82.1 lamps blown..
I'm Harvey the Master Plumber.
Your problem is: had a crackling noise then pop..looks like transformer has blown,replaced but still no lights ..fan o.k...don't appear to be getting any power to transformer via switch?...how do you get push button switch out?... bypassed light switch and lights o.k with new transformer..any ideas..
Yes, I agree, the switch went bad. It snaps in so you will break it during removal. I recomend you get the replacement switch first so you don't have a wire hanging out while you wait for the new one.

IT THE NOISE COMING FROM THE FAN RUNNING? IF IT IS YOU NEED TO CHECK THE SCREW THAT ;ATTACHES THE FAN BLADES TO THE SHAFT. IT COULD BE LOOSE. ALSO CHECK THE SHAFT TO SEE IF IT IS WORN AND MOVES FROM SIDE TO SIDE. IF IT DOES YOU WILL NEED TO REPLACE THE MOTOR.
Look at the instruction/installation manual. Are the bulbs 12volts or 120vac? If it is 12v there is a transformer that might be shorting to ground. If no transformer, the control panel or the control board has a short.
We have a Cavalier range hood as well that the two halogen lights stopped working. Bulbs were good and the light switch illuminated. I ended up ordering and replacing the transformer and it works great:
I have a Fabyka Range Hood and know three other people who have had this exact problem (i.e both lights go out simulatneously but fan works fine). In my case I was able to pin it down to the transformer used by the halogen lights. This is an electronic transformer so it is less tolerant of power surges and such.
In the case of Fabyka the transformer is a black box connected to the inside of the hood with sticky tape with a black and white wire and two red wires. It is only used for the lights.
It is connected to the AC power via a black and white wire. you can disconnect this and us an LED power tester (about $2-$5 at most hardware stores) and see if you have power when you hit the switch.
In my case it is a 70W 120v to 12v halogen transformer. You can by a replacement off Amazon for about $12 including shipping or you can by a new one from Fabyka for about $30. I would suggest getting a slightly higher wattage transformer (I bought a 105watt for a dollar more).
You will need to disconnect the power before replacing but it is an easy fix.
1. Disconnect the AC power connector (black and white wires.) 2. The red wires coming out are the 12volt lines. If there is a connector, you can disconnect this, if not, you may need to cut these off. 3. Pull the tranformer off the back of the inside of the hood. 4. Cut the connectors off the old transformer. (Unless you buy Fabyka's.) 5. Connect them to the new transformer using wire connectors or crimps. (Make sure you connect black to black, white to white, and red to red.) 6. Make sure you have no exposed wires. 7. Connect to the corresponding connectors inside the hood. Connect the AC connector last. 8. Verify that the lights work properly. 9. Use sticky tape (or Gorilla tape) to attach the connector to the inside of the hood. 10. Enjoy the light.
take out switch assemby and check if the track of the pcb is blown - caused by the bulb goiung. you can often repair by soldering in wire links. bet you have 12a fuse in system - should be 3a. track has blown instead of the fuse
