Bulb has blown on one of the lights but the other light will not
The first time a bulb blew on the cooker hood the other light stayed permanently lit and would not switch off with the switch (the extractor fans continued to work ok with their switches.) The hood was still under warranty so the indesit engineer was called and he replaced the control board. A bulb has blown again and we seem to have the same problem but the warranty has run out. Surely this cannot happen each time a bulb goes - do you know if this is an inherent problem with this type of cooker hood

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?
I had the same experiences with my lights. I placed a 50v bulb and it blew the fuses. The fusees located on the right side of the bottom duct cover. use 5a 125 v fuse GE part # wb27x10542 but you can find a cheaper fuse at Radio Shack. Good luck
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
