Halogen Lights Failing

I am an appliance salesman for a locally owned business in my city. I sold this hood to a customer of mine that has been having problems with the halogen lighting. Initially the lights just quit working. Three seperate service calls were made to repair the problem. Each time after the lights failed shortly after. The whole hood was replaced and two days later the lights failed again. There have been no problems with the vent motor at all, only the lights. Any feedback would be much appreciated. Thanks!!!

Re: Halogen Lights Failing

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

Re: Halogen Lights Failing

If the hood is on the same circuit as the range / cooker then maybe there is a power surge when the cooker is turned on or off, or possibly a low voltage when the cooker is running - that will often damage halogens - try wiring the hood totally seperate. Unless there is a similar generic fault with both hoods, power supply has to be the problem. (I am guessing that the bulbs were the right ones). Hope this can help :)

What is the wattage for the halogen lights for the hood. There are two lights but they do not list the wattage

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.

Electrolux PLHV42P8CC/two lights working two out and replacing bulbs does not fix the issue

Good Afternoon Rick,

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.

-Best Regards-

I need to find out the light bulbs relacements for a zephyr rangehood, model venezia

Check out the zephyr Site. The halogen bulbs they use are very unique. Have two clients that have Zephyr hoods and took me a while to locate replacement bulbs. Could not find them at the local lighting stores nor hardware stores. I believe it is a 35 watt halogen (sort of an MR-16 size) with an entended base.

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.

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.

Problem changing halogen bulbs on perla rangehood

The more I worked with it, the more I discovered that the real problem was that a screw was not all the way screwed in and it was preventing the panel from sliding. Another problem I may have is finding the glass covered halogen bulb.
