I have a Baumatic ISL94SS and want to replace the 4 hologeen G4 lights (20W)for Led G4 (2W).

These appear to be quite available:

Amazon com g4 led

While I don't have your Baumatic, I've replaced dozens of halogen and incandescent lamps with LEDS. I've also used LED striplights to replace fluorescent tubes.

Where can i find the fluorescent light ballasts for my hood?

They may not be sold separately, but you can use any ballast you want as long as the ratings and wiring is the same and you have room to mount it without any interfernce.

How to change the light

There are three different models... two wall models (the WL24 and the WL36) and an island model (the IS24). The instructions for changing the lights on all three models are the same.

Light bulb:

  • Make sure your hood is disconnected from the main power supply.
  • You may see a screw at the edge of the light cover. Unscrew it and remove the light cover.
  • Replace the light bulb with the same model as the original. There may be a decal near the bulb that indicates its rating. Don't exceed 25 watts! It's best to bring the old bulb to your store to have it replaced exactly.

  • Make sure your hood is disconnected from the main power supply.
  • If you don't see a screw, then - using a screwdriver - lever the support ring, then grasp it & pull it straight down and off. This ring supports the glass cover - remove it as well (don't drop it!).
  • Replace the lamp with the same type (12V, 20W, G4 fitting).
  • Replace the glass cover and the support ring - it should snap back in.
Fluorescent light:
  • This needs to be changed by a qualified installer. Don't attempt it yourself.
Good luck!

The light diffuser cover is broken. The model number of the range hood is HO60488. The range hood dates back to possibly the late 1950's when the house was built.

When faced with the total unavailability of replacement parts, its time to get creative, and make your own diffuser cover. Flat ones
can be easily made - find anything plastic that's semi-translucent (like a plastic milk bottle), and cut it with a utility knife.
I have also used a utility knife to cut a polystyrene diffuser cover
originally intended for a 2-ft x 4-ft suspended ceiling fluorescent light fixture.
In case the diffuser cover you make wants to burn when placed close to a light bulb, replace the bulb with a CFL (compact fluorescent) bulb, which run MUCH cooler than incandescent light bulbs.
Old lampshades can be cut and used, but may need to be ironed flat. The major advantage of lampshade material is that
it can be folded over at the edge once or twice, which will fill space - and possibly hold the cover where a plastic sheet might be too loose.
You'll know that your efforts have met with success when you can easily remove your ne diffuser cover to replace the light bulb.

GE Deluxe 30 Range Hood ---can't find a 2 way bulb (Light/night light)???

The current Convertible Deluxe rangehood from GE doesn't support a two-way (light/night light bulb). You can use an incandescent light with an A15 type (60 watts or less) or a compact fluorescent (A17 or T2) with an ordinary screw base that draws no more than 13 watts. Some models can only use the incandescent light (RN328, JN327, JV338). The recommended compact fluorescents are available from (product codes: 85383 or 47486). Check you manual or for a pdf of your manual.

I wish that I could be of more help.

How do you replace the light bulbs? There is a lens cover over the bulb.

This is how to replace the lights on the KitchenAid khlu162m hood. If this is not you hood please give the right make and model # so I can get you the right info.

Replacing the Halogen
The hood liner uses 12-volt, 20
watt halogen lamp bulbs.
Before you begin, make sure that
the range hood is turned off and
that the lamps have had sufficient
time to cool.
To replace a halogen lamp:
• Remove 2 screws from the
circular metal trim around the
lamp assembly.
• Pull the trim with the lamp
assembly attached down far
enough so that the lamp can be
pushed out of the socket clips.
• Insert the new lamp into the
socket clips and push the lamp
and trim assembly back up into
the hood.
• Replace the screws.

Good Luck and please rate 4 thumbs up for the free answer.
