Question about Kitchen Ranges
The lights blew with a flash and a bang. I have replaced both lights but they still don't work. The light on the switch turns on and off.
Sounds like your ground is probably caked in grease.. Kill the breaker and trace the wires back until you find the one that's screwed into some metal. Take it off, clean it and try again

Testimonial: "Thanks for your input. Unfortunately there are no leads that connect to metal. All go to a connector block under a plastic cover I unscrewed. Wires everywhere. I think I may need to get someone to fix it for me. Thanks again"

I'm Harvey the Master Plumber.
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.
Feel free contact me again!

Its forsure 100% guaranteed to be the control board. Its located right behind where you push the buttons. You must remove the sticker (button pad) to access the three screws retaining the control board to remove it. The new control assembly comes with a new stickers.
