SOURCE: Problem changing halogen bulbs on perla rangehood

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.

check to be sure that the fan works, and if it does check to be sure that the air flow path to outdoors is not clogged. one way to do this is to remove the hood and slide a dry garden hose through the entire vent pipe to the outdoors.

SOURCE: We have an IS7599 Smeg

You can suspend it by wires wrapped on the ducting at 3 equal point of the circumference. This is good for when there is no walls or support around. The manufacture of the ducting should also offer bands/ brackets to suspend or mount. Its really a easy job. Best of luck.

SOURCE: our smeg oven has stopped working, we have power

A couple of possibilities; oven thermocouple failure or the igniter is dead. If the latter has failed preventing the initial ignition, the thermocouple will shut down the gas supply quite rapidly.

I have a qasair rangehood (uv-1200-2) with 2 lights. The lights have not worked for a year or so. I have now replaced them (following http://www.qasair.com.au/images/installation_inst/QAIInstr_Lamp.pdf )...


First, turn off power to the rangehood. Check the contact resistance of the light switch(es) with an ohmmeter. It should be less than 0.1 Ohms. If you get a substantially higher resistance in the on position, the switch contact is burned out. Also, inspect the wiring harness connector and the connections to the light fixtures. If they show signs of overheating, the connection resistance is too high. You can try polishing the connector contacts to remove oxidation. I use a pencil eraser for mild cases and a non-metallic dry scouring pad (3M Scotch-Brite) for more severely tarnished contacts. In the worst case it will be necessary to replace the terminals or connector.

According to the drawing for this series on the Qasair website, the unit uses fluorescent lamps rather than the halogen lamps referred to in the lamp installation instructions. If this is true, it is likely the ballast has failed (if the lamps have separate switches, they probably have separate ballasts also). If the original ballast model is no longer available, make sure the replacement has at least as high a maximum temperature rating as the original. This is especially critical for electronic ballasts. You can extend the life of the new ballasts by making sure the fans are running before turning on the lights - this should reduce the ambient operating temperature inside the hood.

Baumatic rangehood bah9005 the switch pushes in and the lights dont work , motor works when electrical switch at wall is on


Thank you for using FixYa. It sounds like there is obviously power getting to the rangehood ( the motor works) and I would suspect that it is just the bulbs that have blown.

I need to find out the light bulbs relacements for a zephyr rangehood, model venezia


Check out the zephyr Site. The halogen bulbs they use are very unique. Have two clients that have Zephyr hoods and took me a while to locate replacement bulbs. Could not find them at the local lighting stores nor hardware stores. I believe it is a 35 watt halogen (sort of an MR-16 size) with an entended base.

Rangehood lights not working


I have a Fabyka Range Hood and know three other people who have had this exact problem (i.e both lights go out simulatneously but fan works fine). In my case I was able to pin it down to the transformer used by the halogen lights. This is an electronic transformer so it is less tolerant of power surges and such.

In the case of Fabyka the transformer is a black box connected to the inside of the hood with sticky tape with a black and white wire and two red wires. It is only used for the lights.

It is connected to the AC power via a black and white wire. you can disconnect this and us an LED power tester (about $2-$5 at most hardware stores) and see if you have power when you hit the switch.

In my case it is a 70W 120v to 12v halogen transformer. You can by a replacement off Amazon for about $12 including shipping or you can by a new one from Fabyka for about $30. I would suggest getting a slightly higher wattage transformer (I bought a 105watt for a dollar more).

You will need to disconnect the power before replacing but it is an easy fix.

1. Disconnect the AC power connector (black and white wires.)
2. The red wires coming out are the 12volt lines. If there is a connector, you can disconnect this, if not, you may need to cut these off.
3. Pull the tranformer off the back of the inside of the hood.
4. Cut the connectors off the old transformer. (Unless you buy Fabyka's.)
5. Connect them to the new transformer using wire connectors or crimps. (Make sure you connect black to black, white to white, and red to red.)
6. Make sure you have no exposed wires.
7. Connect to the corresponding connectors inside the hood. Connect the AC connector last.
8. Verify that the lights work properly.
9. Use sticky tape (or Gorilla tape) to attach the connector to the inside of the hood.
10. Enjoy the light.
