Don't forget to unplug the hood, or switch it of. Although the halogen lamps are only 12 volt. In the hood are dangerous voltages. How to replace cooker hood halogen bulb or lamp
As a general rule, the size and shape of the bulb will determine the wattage. Match it up with ones in the store, the value can be slightly higher or lower but it will still work just fine. Halogen bulbs burn out much quicker if you handle them without gloves or tissues. The oil from your fingers will cause them to burn out faster.
I see that you are having trouble with the front right and back right halogen lights not working on your Electrolux range hood, model# PLHV42P8CC. I also see that you have heard of testing and replacing the transformer inside your appliance. I suggest contacting an authorized technician. It could possibly be something other than the transformer or it is possible that it is the transformer and something else that is causing the right side lights to not come on. Hope this is helpful.
What model range hood do you have? To remove most of the bulbs from a Zephyr hood, wait for the bulb to cool after use. Then rotate the bulb counter-clockwise about 60 degrees (less than a quarter turn) and the bulb should drop down. If you have problems turning the bulb, try the glass suction cup that comes with the hood or a rubber/latex glove grip. Sometimes a rubber jar grip will also work.
The one way to find out your range hood bulb may be to remove one and look at the side/back. The bulbs are labeled. Otherwise, check your manual. Zephyr has the manuals for most of their ranges here: http://zephyronline.com/customer_support . Use the drop-down menu to select your model.
Different hoods use different bulbs. For AK6500, 6536, 6542 Cyclone hoods, purchase type: 4OR 14 mini flood light bulbs. For the AK2500, 2536 hoods, you need to purchase type GU 10 halogen bulbs. For the Anzio models, including the ZAN-E30AS, get a GU-10 50W halogen bulb.

Original bulb has a JDR designation. I ordered bulbs and received bulbs with a JDRC designation, the brand was Hikari--these bulbs were shorter than the original bulbs and will not seat properly even after removing filters and turning bulbs by the neck of the bulb (porcelain section). Since they won't seat completely in the socket there is no electrical contact and they won't work.
I had the same experiences with my lights. I placed a 50v bulb and it blew the fuses. The fusees located on the right side of the bottom duct cover. use 5a 125 v fuse GE part # wb27x10542 but you can find a cheaper fuse at Radio Shack. Good luck
