My Sirius Range Hood has two lights that take G4 Halogen bulbs. Is there a 115V bulb made for this application or is there something that converts the voltage to 12V?


These Halogen bulbs are inefficient, and run so hot that they often damage the reflector and bulb socket if they are left on too long. Fortunately there is an easy fix for this. At most stores that sell the exact replacement Halogen bulbs (Lowes, Home Depot and others) you will see a selection of LED bulbs on the same display rack that will fit into the same socket the Halogen bulbs use. It is IMPORTANT that you know the code number stamped on the base of your Halogen bulb AND its voltage because some Halogen bulbs are 12 volts and some are 110 volts. If you can't read the labeling on the bulb, look for the wiring diagram usually glued inside the range hood or look in your owner's manual. Once you know your Halogen bulb's code number, look at the packages that the LED replacements come in. There will be a list of Halogen bulb code numbers that the LEDs are meant to replace. The male sockets on these LED replacements will be shaped just like the sockets on your original Halogen bulbs so they will plug in easily. However, just like LEDs bulbs that replace the old incandescent bulbs in your table lamps or ceiling sockets, they have an electronic section included in there base to run the LEDs and it makes the LED bulb slightly longer than the much simpler Halogen bulb. For my stove hood it meant that the bulb would not quite fit into the reflector in the hood. I had to use a Dremel tool to remove a bit of the reflector to get a proper fit. The LED bulb is just as bright but runs SO much cooler and uses so much less electricity that now I can use the range hood as a night light in the kitchen. I never felt safe doing that with the two Halogen bulbs since they ran so hot that they were burning the fixture that held them in the stainless steel hood and were melting the wiring entering the socket base. This upgrade to your range hood is well worth the effort.

Why does one of the halogen lamps burn out frequently?


Halogen lamps draw considerable current. There may be some defect in the socket such as cracked ceramic or damaged wiring contributing to short life.

Replace halogen bulb


Please see my answer at http://www.fixya.com/support/t9977585-sv168n_36_spagna. I suspect your problem is with a failed transformer, rather than the actual halogen fixtures.

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
lamps:
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.

Hood Light Problem


This is a light socket problem, and it has plagued hoods for years simply because grease builds up there and is acidic. One fix is to disconnect the power and wash the socket with alcohol, then buff with steel wool being careful to leave no steel wool behind. After cleaning you will need to re-tension the little aluminum/brass button at the bottom of the socket by placing a screwdriver under it and gently lifting it about 30 degrees upwards. Replace the bulbs with ONLY the stated wattage bulbs indicated on the panel.

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
