How to change the light


There are three different models... two wall models (the WL24 and the WL36) and an island model (the IS24). The instructions for changing the lights on all three models are the same.

Light bulb:

  • Make sure your hood is disconnected from the main power supply.
  • You may see a screw at the edge of the light cover. Unscrew it and remove the light cover.
  • Replace the light bulb with the same model as the original. There may be a decal near the bulb that indicates its rating. Don't exceed 25 watts! It's best to bring the old bulb to your store to have it replaced exactly.
Spotlight:

  • Make sure your hood is disconnected from the main power supply.
  • If you don't see a screw, then - using a screwdriver - lever the support ring, then grasp it & pull it straight down and off. This ring supports the glass cover - remove it as well (don't drop it!).
  • Replace the lamp with the same type (12V, 20W, G4 fitting).
  • Replace the glass cover and the support ring - it should snap back in.
Fluorescent light:
  • This needs to be changed by a qualified installer. Don't attempt it yourself.
Good luck!

I'm trying to change a light bulb in napoli zepher hood. I can't seem to unscrew the old bulb....what do I do now?


Standard bulb? Make sure the power is off. Put on a glove and keep trying. If you end up breaking it, try a screw driver into the base. No luck, you can get a replacement lamp holder at a appliance parts or hardware store. I have a tool designed to remove the broken base, but that does you no good and I dont know if they are made any longer. I got mine in '64.

Your lamp has been in so long, it baked itself into the socket (grease, etec)

Can this be installed over an island?


Bring a focal point to your kitchen by having an island range hood, combining function and elegant form. A suspended hood is also an efficient way to vent
grease, odors and smoke to the outside from a island stovetop while you cook. You can install an island range hood in just a few hours with the right tools
and knowledge.
1.Wear safety glasses and work gloves. Turn off the electricity to your kitchen at the circuit panel. Cover the circuit breaker with a piece of electrical
tape to prevent people from turning the on switch while you are at work.
2.Lay work drop cloths on your cooktop and floor to catch dust and debris. Mark the duct opening with a pencil in the ceiling, where the island hood will be
installed. Be sure the opening is centered directly above your cooktop. Cut the opening using a hacksaw.
3.Go up to the roof, using a cat's claw and hammer to remove stucco, tiles, sheathing and insulation to make way for the steel venting duct. Drop a
plumb bob down the roof, making sure the line is straight down for the ductwork.
4.Follow the manufacturer's instructions for locations, installing 2-by-2 wooden blocks in the ceiling to hold the ductwork hangers.
5.Install the venting duct from the outside of the home, down to the location of the exhaust vents on the island hood. The ducts should easily slip into each
other. Secure all the duct sections with duct sealing putty, using a putty knife.
6.Screw a roof cap on the end of the duct at the roof. Seal any openings or gaps where the roof, ceiling and duct meet with silicon sealant. Let the sealant
dry, then paint with colors matched to the surrounds.
7.Place your hood upside-down on the floor, with the fan and filter facing upward. Locate and unscrew the metal electrical box cover on the island range
hood, to expose the wiring
8.Install the hood cover to the load-bearing ceiling frame with the package hardware through the four inside mounting corner flanges on the cover.
9.Measure what will be the distance from the bottom of your hood to the cooktop; it should not exceed 30 inches for exhaust efficiency. Have a helper hold
the hood in place while you attach the hood on the hood cover using the included screws. Use a level be sure the hood is level as mounted.
10.Connect the electrical wiring by consulting the manufacturer's suggestions or hire an electrician if you are not familiar with house wiring. Tuck the wires neatly in the hood electrical box and then replace the cover, after connecting the hood wires to the wall wiring.
11.Remove the electrical tape on the circuit breaker, turn on the electricity to your kitchen and test your island range hood.

Installing a vent hood...


There is no kit to make this conversion. That being said, you could get an estimate from a sheet metal fabrication shop on creating the conversion you are seeking.

Good luck with it.

Futuro Island Vent Hood


Hi snuds1369,

I'm Harvey the Master Plumber.

Your question is: You have a situation that recently has started with your Futuro Island Vent Hood. In the past a blue light would be on the display (4 buttons) when the hood was on. Recently the blue light for the hood is now on when the hood is off. Is there a way to reset this?

Yes. Turn off at the breaker for 30 min. If this doesn't work it's an indication the control chip has a problem.

Feel free contact me again!
