You have to remove the base plate. There are 3 screws, one at each corner and one in middle at back. We had to release unit from wall by 5 mm to get at them as it was tiled up to unit. To release unit, remove filters and loosen screws holding it to wall. There are hooks higher up that continue to take the weight so it will not fall. I put a couple of wedges in to hold the unit off the wall.
Take out 3 screws holding base plate and lower back, the front them comes out of slots. You can unplug the light wires and release the clips for the control cable to drop it down onto work top. Then you can easily work on switch unit. The plastic mounting had snapped on one side of mine, I used a longer screw and a square of metal behind to hold it in place.
Then reverse the process, you need someone to hold the back of the base plate while you line up slots at the front.
The current Convertible Deluxe rangehood from GE doesn't support a two-way (light/night light bulb). You can use an incandescent light with an A15 type (60 watts or less) or a compact fluorescent (A17 or T2) with an ordinary screw base that draws no more than 13 watts. Some models can only use the incandescent light (RN328, JN327, JV338). The recommended compact fluorescents are available from www.gelighting.com (product codes: 85383 or 47486). Check you manual or products.geappliances.com for a pdf of your manual.
I wish that I could be of more help.

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.
The charcoal filter is for if you do not have the hood vent to the outside of the house. The charcoal filter does not come with the hood you need to buy it separately and It will tell you where to put in the instructions that come with it.
