Went to turn on the rangehood light, and as I did so, there was a loud banging noise which also tripped safety switch, causing other appliances to lose power. Safety switch reset and everything else is working fine except the rangehood. No lights, no fans. The fans weren't on at the time either, just went to turn light on. Not sure if it is a motor problem or not. Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks.

Remove the filters and see if you can see the fan blade. Try turning the fan blade by hand. If its jammed up or tight, you may need a new motor. If it spins freely, turn on the rangehood and give the fan blade a spin . BE CAREFULL when doing this, if the motor starts up and runs properly after spinning it, it could be the start capacitor has failed. If it still wont run or if the fan is tight, you may need a new motor. Spare Parts should be available. You will have to trawl the internet looking for Baumatic parts suppliers in your area.
I have a 600mm Chateau range hood with the same problem. To access the globe chamber, you need to first remove the plastic diffuser from the underside of the rangehood. Located at one end of the diffuser will be a small slot approx 10 mm long. Insert a small flat blade screwdriver into this slot and carefully depress the plastic tongue of the diffuser by gently pushing the head of the screwdriver away from the diffuser. As the tongue disengages from the frame you should be able to grasp the edge of the diffuser and pull it away from the frame. Once the diffuser has been removed from the frame, you will be able to change the globe.
To reinstall the diffuser, insert the plain end of the diffuser into the frame of the the rangehood (above the globe) and gently push the clip end back to its flush position.
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.
My Baumatic Rangehood model BAISL92.2 had the letter A flashing. I was advised by a repairman that it indicated the filters needed to be cleaned with warm soapy water. Apparently in my particular model there is a built in 30 hour timer for when the filters need to be cleaned. To remove the flashing letter A, I was advised to clean the filters, turn off the rangehood and while it was off, press the (-) (minus) button and hold for 5 seconds. It beeped and the flashing letter A was removed. This worked for my particular model - I couldn't guarantee it would be the solution for your model. I hope this is some help.
