I had the same problem. An audible pop and the lights stopped. Fans still works, light bulb filaments appear intact. My problem was that a short piece of the copper on the printed circuit board, inside the switch housing, had vaporized as if it were a fuse. I soldered a bridge of copper wire across the small 5mm gap and all was working again. Access the switch compartment by removing the filters, undo a couple of retaining screws to remove switch unit. Make sure the electricity to the unit is Off/unplugged before proceeding!!! Switch unit cover has 4 screws holding it on. Once inside the unit, trace the wire (mine was grey colour) from the light switch to the small printed circuit board. The copper printed circuit link to the connector had gone...no sign of burning, just gooone! Solder a bridge of copper wire across the gap and reassemble switch unit to test. ....send beer donations to me in qld...cheers!!!
Look at the instruction/installation manual. Are the bulbs 12volts or 120vac? If it is 12v there is a transformer that might be shorting to ground. If no transformer, the control panel or the control board has a short.
I have a NuTone Allure WS2 range hood. The fan works fine, so does the control board seem ok, but the lights work only intermittently. NuTone tech support said to replace the control board, which I suspect is its kneejerk response. The board costs almost $200--and for two lights???
My problem is similar to the one whose lights work, fan doesn't, but I have a feeling my problem is different.I hope simpler.
Thanks in advance for help (light) on the problem anyone can offer.
To replace the light bulb:
1. Remove the right filter and turn off the main power
2. Gently push the suction cup on the light replacement
tool A (provided with you range hood)
onto the lens of the light bulb B .
3. Turn the tool counter-clockwise until the bulb
4. Remove the tool from the bulb and put it on the
lens of the replacement bulb.
5. Screw the new bulb into the light fixture clockwise
until it is tight. Turn on power at the fuse or junction
box. Turn on the main power switch and touch
the light key to make sure it is working.
6. Replace the filter. You can download the manual here.
Your problem is: This hood worked fine until a light bulb blew out. Put in a new light bulb, but the lights will not turn off. Is the light switch bad or is there a problem with the control panel? The fan still works fine but the lights will not turn off or adjust dim or bright.
You're on the right track. The light control switch needs replacing. You might try utilizing the Repair Directory to find a repairman. If you have the tools and ability just remember to turn off the electric first.

check the printed circuit board behind the switches - maybe when bulb blew it took out some of the track. usually repairable by soldering in a link over the damaged track. have you checked the fuse as well?
take out switch assemby and check if the track of the pcb is blown - caused by the bulb goiung. you can often repair by soldering in wire links. bet you have 12a fuse in system - should be 3a. track has blown instead of the fuse
