DID YOU TRY TAKING THE COVER OFF. IF SO TURN THE BREAKER FOR THAT FAN THEN PAT A GLOVE ON INCASE THE BULB BREAK'S WHEN PULING UNSCREWING. MOST TIMES IT WAS EITHER SCREW IN WRONG OR JUST HAS GREASE AND RUST.

That would depend on what country you are in. If it is not the USA then it is most likely the voltage is 220. The products are listed here: http://ventahood.com/specifications.jsp IT appears that you dont have the right model number.
Hello. Be sure to kill the power to the hood at the breaker. Then back to the bulb. Yes it does unscrew like any bulb. [right is tight and left is loose]. Wear a glove on the hand you will unscrew the bulb with. If it does break, no problem; then use a pair of needle nosed vise grips to grab hold of the metal threaded ring and unscrew it. Often times these bulbs are exposed to so much moisture that they corrode resulting in the difficulty you are having.
I would think you can. Most of the cooktops are 240v and the vents are 120v, so the vent may be feeding off of one of the cooktop's hot wires. My vent is fed from it's own receptacle but is harnessed along with the cooktop's 240v.
Had same problem & fuse fixed it.
Before buying a new control board (approx $160), check the 3 amp fuse located on the inside of the vent on the control board. You have to take the light/bottom housing & black plastic air chute off to see control board/fuse.
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.
Buylighting.com, JDR120V-75W-E27CG...also comes in 50 watt. They aren't inexpensive, but if installed properly, will last a while. We have a little suction cup to take them out and put them in. It came with the range hood. If you get fingerprints on a halogen bulb, it can blow out quicker.
Believe it or not - they just unscrew like regular light bulbs. There is supposed to be a suction cup that came with the hood to replace the bulb - we lost ours. I was able to remove it by using a little bit of pressure on the face of the bulb and twisting it back and forth. The other bulb was stuck, so I made a "handle" using duct tape on the face of the bulb.
