Original bulb has a JDR designation. I ordered bulbs and received bulbs with a JDRC designation, the brand was Hikari--these bulbs were shorter than the original bulbs and will not seat properly even after removing filters and turning bulbs by the neck of the bulb (porcelain section). Since they won't seat completely in the socket there is no electrical contact and they won't work.

Zephyr uses bulbs with very slightly different overall length. A store bought bulb that appears to be the same may be ever so slightly different length and thus not work. This is due to the bulb's screw base not fully mating into the socket and getting good contact with the power contacts. The correct Zephyr part number for this bulb is Z0B0020 which is a halogen bulb with these specifics: GU10, 50W, 120V).
If the correct bulb will not light (and the other side does work) then a new light socket is called for. The attached link provides a parts diagram and part numbers for this hood.

Original working light was inserted into the problem socket and did not work. Further the replacement bulb (store purchase) worked in one of the other working sockets.

There are typically only three reasons why the fan would work and the lights would not:

• The bulb may have burned out.
• The fuse for the bulb may have blown.
• Switch operation may be faulty.

I would check each bulb in a different socket, like a floor lamp.
Then check the fuse or the circuit breaker for the hood.

If these things are all aok, it must be a faulty switch.

Original bulb is actually a JDR--I purchased 2 bulbs and received JDRC bulbs that are shorter and do not fit and there is no adjustment at the bulb housing/socket--LOL

My Zephyr hood model zto-m79s lights don't work. The unit was installed in 2007. Sometimes they sputter, flashing briefly, then nothing. Do I need a service call or can I fix it myself? Nancy

Try taking out the bulbs and wiping with a clean dry cloth. Sometimes when bulbs get hot the connection loosens, when you screw them back in do not over tighten.

Light blub burnt out

The easiest way to remove the light bulb is to wear a rubber glove, use your palm to press against the bulb, and turn counter-clockwise.

The suction created by the rubber glove should allow you to remove the light bulb easily.

Need to change lightbulb of Zephyr Savona Zsa-m90s

I'm not sure if my Savona is the same one, but on mine, just remove the filter and you can see the base of the light bulb up above the fan base. You can see where the bulb screws into the fixture. Grab the ceramic portion of the bulb, and turn that part. You may want to steady the socket with your other hand because it is very flimsy.

The bulb is a JDRC E27. Google it and you will find various places to get it, such as or I would recommend buying 3, because if one has gone, the other will go very soon (my experience) and then you have an extra in case you drop one or one of them fails soon. Shipping will be the same, so the more you buy, the cheaper the per-item shipping. Home Depot does not carry them. Also, I don't know the differrence between the JDRC and JDR, so if you get the JDR version you may be displeased. Also, before getting the LED types, check the brightness... when I bought mine, the LED's were not very potent, so I stuck with the Halogens. However, they are very warm.

Zephyr ZMI-M90S stopped working

The company doesn't list such a part. Probably, you have a bad connection in the unit. With the power off, remove the motor housing. Find the connection box and fix up the connections.
