Question about Range Hoods
We have had our faber agio range hood for 4 years, and we are having great difficulty replacing the flourescent lightbulb. We line it up and try to turn it to lock it into place, but the prongs of the lightbulb break. It sounds easy enough to do (we have never had problems replacing a lightbulb!), but we are really frustrated, having broken about 5 bulbs now. Needless to say, our friends are laughing about this! The bulb is in a very tight spot against the wall over the cooktop, and is difficult to get a tight hold on the bulb. Any suggestions would be welcomed!
Believe it or not - they just unscrew like regular light bulbs. There is supposed to be a suction cup that came with the hood to replace the bulb - we lost ours. I was able to remove it by using a little bit of pressure on the face of the bulb and twisting it back and forth. The other bulb was stuck, so I made a "handle" using duct tape on the face of the bulb.

simply remove filter screen from hood (might as well clean it while it is out), reach your hand through the opening, grasp the light bulb and turn clockwise to remove.
had same problem myself and this is what i did.

I had the same problem and found bulbs that fit through elightbulbs.com. You have to look for a European base, 40 Watt, 120 Volt incandescent light bulb. They are about $3.50 each plus shipping. I bought two and they are excellent. I've ordered another 6. They are shorter looking than the original Phillips bulbs, but just as bright and you don't have to replace the sockets. Good luck!

Testimonial: "Thank You, I'll give these a try!"
The part number for the 1200,1400,1600 & 1800 series is #01752 light difuser.
They all fit the same opening.

Had same problem & fuse fixed it.
Before buying a new control board (approx $160), check the 3 amp fuse located on the inside of the vent on the control board. You have to take the light/bottom housing & black plastic air chute off to see control board/fuse.
