Question about Miele Kitchen Ranges

Why did the lights dim and now are out on Miele DA229 range hood?

The hood lights all dimmed occasionally for a week and now do not turn on at all. Is it likely a switch issue, electronics, or a dead transformer after 15 years of use?

Probably the power supply for the lights.

Did you ever find out what blew the fuse originally? Do the lights have a dimmer feature on them? If so, the reostsat may be bad, or the switch that controls the light intensity, 1,2,3. ect. Something caused the fuse to blow, maybe a wire on the bulb or switch somewhere.

Hi shealy,

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!

Starting problem (see details), on 1998 Town & Country.


Check your battery cables and starter cables especially the connectors and bolts under the hood. The bolts and connections could be loose or corroded. Check the connections near the battery and on the battery since many times mechanics mess with these the most. My guess is something is loose if it starts well most times, but fails occasionally. Did you look for blinky codes or DTCs? A '47' (or P0562) could mean a bad battery or alternator, and a '12' (or P1684) could indicate intermittent connections. Do the dome lights dim or stay well lit when the clicking is heard during cranking? If so, then the issue is most likely near the battery and if not then the issue is more likely near the starter. Good luck. There are a lot of wires under the hood.

They are dimable lights. Just have a read of your owner's manual and you will learn a lot.

My 1997 chrysler town and country van was running fine until this afternoon. After I stopped and pulled the key out I heard a clicking sound under the hood (around the fuse box). Since then it won't start....


It is highly possible that battery is just dead. This also happened to me on my 97 Jeep Cherokee. I started it in the morning with no issue what so ever, then when i went to go start it again a short while later it was the same issue your having. I tried to jumpstart it and nothing. The clicking noise your hearing is from the starter itself which is perfectly normal when you have a dead battery. That is why your lights dim when you try to start it. It is because when your trying to turn over the starter your having a power drain from whatever is left in the almost dead battery but it doesn't have enough power to turn the starter. Also that is why when you tried to jumpstart it and it didn't work, the battery is just too dead to accept the charge passing through it. Replace the battery and all will be fine. A good name brand battery costs roughly $70-$100 depending on the brand of the battery. I personally have had nothing but good luck with Duralast and Interstate batteries. Good luck. Happy motoring.

DW, It is not the transformer. It could be the dimming controls. Also, instead of using a bigger transformer go in for CFL bulbs and reduce the load on the transformer. And contribute towards efforts to reduce global warming by using less electricity.

I changed a light bulb on my Viking hood, now I can't dim the lights anymore...they just stay on bright. what can i do to get dimming feature back?


If you put a CFL in it, they are not dimmable. If it is a standard light bulb, it should not affect the dimmer.

I have a Cavaliere 218 range hood and the lights don't come on. Lamp button illuminates, but no lights come on. Bulbs are good.


We have a Cavalier range hood as well that the two halogen lights stopped working. Bulbs were good and the light switch illuminated. I ended up ordering and replacing the transformer and it works great:
