Question about Dryers
This light uses the small decorative bulbs with small screw in bottoms. The sockets are dead, lights aren't working and we'd like to replace them. Do you know if there are replacement parts available?

Several possiblities come to mind.
1) Electric motors attract dust and lint; enough can either cause the motor to overheat or just physically clog. Regular vacuuming helps, but you may have to pull it apart to check (de-energize that wiring circuit first).
2. Look for any loose wire connections. If you have a multi-meter, use it to check for continuity between the various wires.
3. Look at the motor for signs of scorching or other physical damage. If the previous two steps don't fix it, you're likely looking for a new/rebuilt motor.
Fixing #1 or #2 are probably within the capabilities of the average homeowner; if #3 is the problem, you probably aren't going to rewind the motor - - you might want to check back here with an update (and feedback?).

SOURCE: palm beach 48"
I just installed two Palm Beach fans with lights. The instructions inside the box say 100 watt max. On the outside it says 75 watt. I picked out two 100 watt halogen bulbs with the mini candelabra base. Before leaving Home Depot I asked for a light kit to be opened just to check I had the right bulbs. Surprise! The light kits in stock now take standard base bulbs. When I got the bulbs home it took a couple of attempts to line up the bulb with the fixture, but it was no real problem.

The ballast is still available on the internet, just Google "veb82122." They want $37 plus shipping. You can also but a 22W Circiline ballast at Home Depot that will work for about $18. (Lowes does not carry them). The original ballast is a solid state design, light weight and instant on. The Home Depot ballast is the heavy transformer kind and a real pain to modify the bracket to make it fit. I have 8 of these Hunter fans and I have installed the Home Depot ballast on two if them so far, but I think that I will order the solid state version as a spare for the next time.

The glass dome is tightened firmly in the factory, so removal is difficult. When removal is attempted to, the metal housing to which the dome is attached will spin with it, making removal impossible. To see what I'm talking about, look in the small space between the dome and the bottom of the blade housing - it looks like a metal flange, but this is only the bottom of the reflective metal canister that holds the light. Note that there are 4 "dimples" around the circumference of this housing, facing inward. These dimples are what hold the glass dome in place. The trick is to use a rigid piece of wood or metal about the size of a 12" ruler and place the corner of that ruler in one of those dimples - FIRMLY. Then, a second person can get some leverage on the glass dome and "unscrew" it from the housing (counter-clockwise). The purpose of holding the ruler-sized material against the dimple is to keep the housing from spinning with the dome. This is easier said than done, but it will work.

I had the same problem
with a 2002 MAZDA MPV. Here's what you need to do.
First take off the
decorative trim around the dashboard. for help, watch the beginning of this
tutorial on changing your radio (which you aren't doing but it shows how to
remove the trim).
Then there are three
phillips screws holding in the gauge cluster (two on the bottom, one on the
top). Unscrew these
Once you've freed the
cluster, pull it out so you can access the three cables on the top of the unit.
They have tabs on them and are a little difficult to pull out but with a little
jiggling, they come free.
Adjust your steering
wheel so it is a low as it will go in order to give you room to take out the
The back of the cluster
has little sockets with TOSHIBA V-2 on them. Take a pair of needle nose pliers
and twist counterclockwise to remove the lights.
NOTE: the plastic socket
that you have removed is a separate piece from the bulb itself. You need to
gently remove the bulbs from the sockets with your fingers or a pair of pliers.
Be careful not to shatter the bulb in your hand
You have two options for
replacing the light bulbs. You can buy replacement incandescent bulbs or buy
LED equivalent bulbs.
I chose to replace them
with LEDs because they were cheaper. However, when I switched them out, they
were blinding (even when my dash was dimmed). Now, they have started to flicker
when the radio is on and have all started to die one by one. It might be that
they were from china or that the LEDs are drawing different current than the
original lights. I'm currently switching back to the original style and hoping
that fixes the problem. So if you do switch out to LED I recommend that you do
not throw out your original incandescent ones if any are still good.
Note: When installing
the LED lights, the polarity matters when inserting the socket base back into
the cluster (i.e. they can be installed backwards). I don't know of any
identifying marks to make sure you twist them back in correctly but make sure
you test the console before re-installing the trim and screwing it in.
The bulb type that you
need to replace it with is a #70 Mini Wedge
lamp. #2721 lamps are
Also as a side note, check to see if there are any parts recalls on your MPV. I've had a problem with my fan running long after I turn the car off and it drains the battery; apparently there's a recall for that. I also have a problem with my cruise control which has also been recalled.
