Question about KitchenAid KWCU360J Kitchen Hood

1 Answer

Hood lights constantly zapping out.

Have replaced all bulbs - they worked initially but zapped out. Wondering if there is a fuse or something. The wiring diagram says there is a "transformer" but how the hell to get the thing open is beyond me.

Re: hood lights constantly zapping out.

I have a similar unit - KitchenAid wall mounted stainless steel stove hood (model KWCU285HSS). Please let me know if you figure out how to open the thing/canopy up. I'm trying to get into the area above the florescent light & starter.

Replaced light bulbs but no light

Original bulb has a JDR designation. I ordered bulbs and received bulbs with a JDRC designation, the brand was Hikari--these bulbs were shorter than the original bulbs and will not seat properly even after removing filters and turning bulbs by the neck of the bulb (porcelain section). Since they won't seat completely in the socket there is no electrical contact and they won't work.

Broan allure II range hood

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.
