Jenn Air JXT8136ADS Hood...A bulb burned out and now can't turn

The other three off! Replaced the burned out bulb and still can't turn off the other 3 lights. Everything else works OK...just the light switch is dead. Control board problem? If so, what needs to be removed to replace it? Is this an an unusual problem or is this likely to happen everytime a bulb burns out?

Thanks for any help,

Changed a buld in hood and it touched casing as I was inserting. Tripped the breaker. This is reset but now have no power to bulbs or fan. Is there a trip in the hood?I dont have the model number, it is a...

check to make sure you have power back to the junction on the hood,sometimes just resetting the breaker wont do the trick,it may be a wire at the hook-up open now,there may be a fuse protecting the unit itself for the fan control,but the lights are usually wired direct so re-check the incoming power first

Bulb blew, now cannot turn off any bulb

the lamps are controlled by a triac that is probably mounted on the control board ... its not unusual for light bulbs to draw extremely high currents as they burn out ... thats because the melting tungston forms a plasma that arcs at very high current levels until a fuse or lead wire burns off inside the lamp ..thats why you see such a bright flash as they burn out .. i recall lamps of 60 watts or greater have to have a built in fuse in the base ... lamps of lower wattage are not forced by law to have that .. so when they burn out they can easily damage external electronics .. so your problem is a shorted triac .. thats a transistor like device that is often used for lamp brightness control .. you can replace the entire control board $$$ or just the defective triac (like $2) .. the bad triac will read shorted between main termanals 1 and 2 on an ohm meter ...(power off of course) .. a normal one will read open ... its likely soldered in place and may have a heat sink attached ... thats an easy job for an electronic person ..
