Question about Range Hoods

Kenmore elite ranghood (series# 550) not working

I was replacing 1 of 2 bulbs, & was unaware that the old bulb was shattered while still in the hood, so when I tried to screw the new bulb in place, sparks flew, the other bulb & the fan stopped working. The only thing that still works is the 2 little green lights that comes on when you press the button to turn on the light or the fan.

Unplug the unit and unscrew the bulbs. put 2 new in if they still dont work then you may have fried the control. there are usually no fuses between the control and light/fan. well i never saw a fuse between the 2.

Kenmore micro hood 721.80033700 shorted out


There is a 20Amp Buss Fuse that is WHITE. you need to find that fuse and replace it and all will work. When you shorted out the hood, the Fuse protects the rest of the hood. Find the Fuse, Replace it and all will be well.

POWER IT OFF and BREAKER OFF before you replace the fuse..

Need replacement bulbs for it, they are european style.


I have spent the last 3 months searching for them. Started in Italy and ended up in Michigan. No luck. The only choice you really have like myself is to replace the light sockets. That will also save you a headache when the bulbs need replacing again.

How do I change light bulbs on a Zephyr Milano hood?


Hi elenara, try applying slight upward pressure as you turn the bulb. Remember righty tighty, lefty loosy. This worked for us, now if I could only find a replacement bulb. Good luck!

42" Allure II Broan Range Hood I put a new bulb to replace


Get two new bulbs and install them. These bulbs are exposed to a lot of heat above the stove and the filaments get brittle. I suspect that the filament on the bulb that still worked broke when you were screwing it out or back in. good luck. please rate my answer. thanks noreen.

Can not get halogen bulb out of my kennmore elite range hood


You will have to do the following steps.

1. remove filters
2. Unscrew 2 screws retaining metal plate under the filters.
3. Now you must remove the whole light panel. 5 screws in all, three under the front lip and two at both back ends of the same panel.
4.You now unhook the light wires (plastic connector with two wires)

Now you have the whole pnale in your hands. Unclip the socket of "problem side" and unscrew the socket from the bulb. Re-do steps 4.3.2.1

Light doesn't work on Kenmore Model 55022 Range hood...


If you're getting 120V at the lampholders, yet it's not lighting lamps that still work perfectly well in other fittings, two possibilitiesspring to mind.

One is that the cap on the bulbs isn't quite compatible with the fitting. Assuming they're some variant of Edison Screw, make sure that the centre terminal in the lampholder is sticking out far enough to touch the terminal on the bulb. Also check whether the lampholder achieves it's outer connection just with a small tab, rather than with the whole of the threaded ring. If so, make sure that this is going to touch the appropriate part of the bulb.

The other possibility is that you've got a high resistance connection somewhere - not enough of an open circuit to drop the 120 V when feeding the Megohm load presented by a meter, but more than enough to kill the supply when you have a lamp load. Only way to chase this is to use the meter on ohms range to bell out all the wiring between the lampholders and bits of the system which do work properly.

Light doesn't work on Kenmore Model 55022 Range hood...


If you have 120VAC on the center contact of the light socket, and a working fan, but the bulb won't light...the most likely cause would be a disconnected neutral wire (white) in the light wiring inside the hood....assuming everything else is wired correctly.

If you're comfortable with further electrical testing...let me know, and I can describe a detailed procedure to check the status of the neutral wire. Otherwise, you may need the assistance of someone familiar with electrical troubleshooting or appliance repair.
