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.

Thanks for the posts. Ours just went out today. I could only test a bulb and that was fine. They all went out at once lke everyone else. And 3 years old too. It's a common problem by the sounds of it. At least it's fixable.

Why baumatic rangehood BABT83.2AL stop working


Remove the filters and see if you can see the fan blade. Try turning the fan blade by hand. If its jammed up or tight, you may need a new motor. If it spins freely, turn on the rangehood and give the fan blade a spin . BE CAREFULL when doing this, if the motor starts up and runs properly after spinning it, it could be the start capacitor has failed. If it still wont run or if the fan is tight, you may need a new motor. Spare Parts should be available. You will have to trawl the internet looking for Baumatic parts suppliers in your area.

Qasair CM900 Rangehood Motor not working properly


I have a twin motor Qasair Heritage 1200mm wide canopy and recently noticed (after 8 years of great service) that one of the motors was having a difficult time getting to high speed compared to the other. Turns out that it is indeed a faulty capacitor. I had the service tech out from Condari, and both capacitors replaced, restoring the high speed function to both fans. Call out fee was $99, each capacitor $15 and labour amounted to $25 for a grand total of $154. Very happy to hear the full force of the fans again! Here is a picture of the old capacitor, which is housed inside the metal box on the side of the fan unit.

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.

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.

How to replace light globe in Chateau Grange rangehood


I have a 600mm Chateau range hood with the same problem. To access the globe chamber, you need to first remove the plastic diffuser from the underside of the rangehood. Located at one end of the diffuser will be a small slot approx 10 mm long. Insert a small flat blade screwdriver into this slot and carefully depress the plastic tongue of the diffuser by gently pushing the head of the screwdriver away from the diffuser. As the tongue disengages from the frame you should be able to grasp the edge of the diffuser and pull it away from the frame. Once the diffuser has been removed from the frame, you will be able to change the globe.
To reinstall the diffuser, insert the plain end of the diffuser into the frame of the the rangehood (above the globe) and gently push the clip end back to its flush position.

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.
