Belling cooker hood chim101 BL - light/ lamp

How do i change the light in the cooker hood. The light comes as a complete unit and apart from pulling the wires out of the back of the lights, i can't see how to change the lights any other way. I've contacted belling for the part number (082611610) but when i do a search on the net, the images show some kind of motor unit rather than a light, please help, many thanks

I just had this very same problem and believe I have solved it!
You can remove the entire light unit from the hood. On first inspection it appears to be a sealed unit that does not allow you to remove either the wires or what looks to be a regular halogen bulb. If you turn the unit so the bulb is facing you, you can gently prise the glass from it's housing leaving the naked halogen bulb exposed beneath it. You can gently pull this from the housing and buy a new one to replace it. I would advise that when installing the new one you make sure it is completely free from any contaminant as any grease etc can greatly reduce the life of the bulb. Hope this helps!

Mrsomuch is almost right, its the steel cage which surrounds the glass that you have to gently prize out.

Fan on cooker hood does not work but light works


It it new? Maybe the fan connection in the connection panel come loose or was not done properly from factory. Turn off the breaker to the hood and inspect the wires and connections, if all is good, then maybe the switch needs replacing. Good Luck!

My rangemaster cooker hoos has just stopped working.. no fan working and no light coming on ??


The same happened to me. I found a 3-amp fuse which I changed, and now it's ok.
I removed the chimney casing and located the electrical connection into the wall. You'll find a fuse unit within the switch which swings out.

Hope this helps.

Rangehood lights not working


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.

Cooker hood not working


Check power from the wall.

Check power in the wiring coming into the hood.

Check to see wiring is not broken.
