Lights in our Thermador Hood model #VCH36

We have a problem with the lights in our Thermador Hood model #VCH36.
One bulb burned out, so we changed it as well as the other (figuring it was old, and we wanted them to match). The correct bulb type and wattage was used.
They worked for 10 minutes or so, and when we attempted to dim them (we used dimmable halogen bulbs that still work when tested in other fixtures), they both went out! The internal nightlight feature on the switch is working, so the switch is working and no fuse was blown on the main circuit breaker.... Any ideas? Is there a hidden fuse somewhere? Many thanks for ANY help! We have a thermadore hood (PHE48US Model #20090157) with 4 bulbs that are no longer working. We bought new bulbs for it, but the problem persist. We suspect that the problem might be in the push button switch. The exhaust continues to operate without problems. Can you tell us how to purchase a new switch, if this is the problem.
Thank you.

Most likely it is the switch, have you taken it apart and checked for voltage at the switch with a volt meter?

Here is a parts list and wiring diagram for you, please check all the wiring before ordering parts to narrow down the loss of power in the wiring

How do you properly remove cover to change


The directions for changing the headlight light bulb in all cars are near to same . but all car models are not the exact same, so there may be a few differences based on your particular car. But this.instructions may properly guide you about the directions to replace the head light bulb in your car.
The instructions are as follows :----
1) First of all open the hood of your car and put a spot light or flash light onto the back of the headlight. Look towards the far corner side of the hood, the headlight is located in a space mounted to the far sides.
2) In some of the car models there is a back cover for which you will require a screwdriver to unscrew the back plate to reach to the bulb. properly locate the screws and unscrew the screws using the proper size screwdriver.
3) Then remove the back plate.

Note: In some car models there will be a wiring component connected usually by plastic clips, so detach the plastic clips and then pull wiring to the side. Then remove the back plate.

1) Remove the Old Light bulb which will be easily visible. Then remove old light bulb by screwing it to the left slowly and carefully.
2) You can get the new light bulb from local auto store and purchase the bulb exactly that matches the one your car model .
3) Then insert the new light bulb in reverse by screwing to the right, and secure in place confirm bulb is properly connected and fitted and not remained loose.
4) To test whether the bulb is properly connected. Just try turning on headlights and make sure it lights up.

5) Then plug wiring component back in if your model has that.Then put backplate back in place , then insert the screws back in and screw in with screw driver tightly.
6) Then close the hood properly and check out head light again.it will work properly.
That means your work is done.
This will help. Thanks please keep updated.please do rate the solution positively .thank you for using fixya

Changing microwave light bulb


Check the owner's manual to see if yours is a model which allows access to the lights without pulling it down from the wall.

Accessing the lights on some models will require you to remove the oven from the wall.


If so, the installation instructions are very handy, and it's best to have two people since the microwave can be heavy and awkward.

You can download owner's manuals and installation instructions for several brands (including Amana, Frigidaire, Jenn-Air, Kitchenaid, Litton, Maytag, Roper, Tappan, Thermador and Whirlpool) here.

Most bulbs can be matched up at hardware stores, home improvement centers, and places like Wal-Mart or even large grocery stores.

Many use halogen lamps. You must not touch the new one with your bare skin, as the oils will shorten the bulb life.

You can find handy exploded views and order parts by model number here.

We're happy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.

All three brake lights are out on my 94 Acura integra.


Check the owner's manual. There are fuses under the hood as well as by the driver's side floor, where the hood release is. If the cover is gone go get one at the junk yard. Comes in handy, even a fuse puller and spares in there

How to change warning light bulbs, 97 Buick Lesabre Ltd


bulbs do burn out, but the dash will have places that are not always used for all models. i.e. if your car doesn't have ABS that light will not be used. To replace the bulbs you will need to remove the instrument cluster from the dash. its not to hard to do yourself, two phillips screwdrivers and some patience
