My Sirius Range Hood has two lights that take G4 Halogen bulbs. Is there a 115V bulb made for this application or is there something that converts the voltage to 12V?


These Halogen bulbs are inefficient, and run so hot that they often damage the reflector and bulb socket if they are left on too long. Fortunately there is an easy fix for this. At most stores that sell the exact replacement Halogen bulbs (Lowes, Home Depot and others) you will see a selection of LED bulbs on the same display rack that will fit into the same socket the Halogen bulbs use. It is IMPORTANT that you know the code number stamped on the base of your Halogen bulb AND its voltage because some Halogen bulbs are 12 volts and some are 110 volts. If you can't read the labeling on the bulb, look for the wiring diagram usually glued inside the range hood or look in your owner's manual. Once you know your Halogen bulb's code number, look at the packages that the LED replacements come in. There will be a list of Halogen bulb code numbers that the LEDs are meant to replace. The male sockets on these LED replacements will be shaped just like the sockets on your original Halogen bulbs so they will plug in easily. However, just like LEDs bulbs that replace the old incandescent bulbs in your table lamps or ceiling sockets, they have an electronic section included in there base to run the LEDs and it makes the LED bulb slightly longer than the much simpler Halogen bulb. For my stove hood it meant that the bulb would not quite fit into the reflector in the hood. I had to use a Dremel tool to remove a bit of the reflector to get a proper fit. The LED bulb is just as bright but runs SO much cooler and uses so much less electricity that now I can use the range hood as a night light in the kitchen. I never felt safe doing that with the two Halogen bulbs since they ran so hot that they were burning the fixture that held them in the stainless steel hood and were melting the wiring entering the socket base. This upgrade to your range hood is well worth the effort.

Newly installed Minka aire concept II ceiling fan is poorly lit. Installed in my son's bedroom and it's useless, dim.


probably not the reason for the dim light. It probably has more to do with the installation where you have wired the light before or after the fan so that power so the bulb is reduced by the resistance in the fan.
lights and fans are wired in parallel so that one doesn't affect the other
Might pay to talk with an electrician on the issue
There is a limit on the size of the bulb that can be used and a 100 watt halogen bulb will probably melt the surrounds and set fire to the fitting
get a desk lamp for his homework

I'm constructing a pair of custom light tubes aircraft aluminum housings with 6' acrylic pipes shooting up to the ceiling I'm using a mixture of bulbs from M13 70 watt halogens to 75 watt black spot lights...


The breaker (or fuse) in your house wiring will handle the dimmer switch if it goes "haywire", but will NOT protect your project if your project goes "haywire".

Yes, put a properly rated fuse or breaker AFTER the dimmer and BEFORE your project. Keep it close to the total maximum load your project will draw, and you will likely be as protected as you're going to get.

(Yes, the fuse or breaker goes on the "Hot" wire only, the juice to the load [the lights] goes through the it)

Sounds like a fun and nifty looking project, Jesse!

Removed the switch plate and connected the two wires going into the dimmer box and the lights still dont come on. I as thikning by bypassing the dimmer the lights should still function. What else could be...


Hi Jay,
Ive suspect that there's a problem in the main line of the wiring. Since four halogen bulb are already replaced with a new bulb and bypassed the dimmer switch concentrate now on the wiring and the main panel board. Look for a tripped/busted breaker on the box, reset it.Replaced if busted. If nothing works, you need to check the wiring on the ceiling for open.
Hope it may help you.
Have a nice day!
Thanks for using fixya.

The right ''driving'' lamp burned out. How do I replace it?


LOOK INSIDE THE ENGINE BAY BEHIND THE HEADLIGHT, THERE IS MOST PROBABLY A RUBBER COVER WITH THE LIGHT WIRES GOING INTO IT, THERE WILL BE A PLASTIC PLUG WHICH THOSE WIRES CONNECT TO AND THE PLUG THEN IS CONNECTED TO THE HALOGEN LIGHT BULB.
REMOVE THE PLUG AND THE RUBBER COVER WHICH WILL EXPOSE THE REAR OF THE LIGHT, YOU MAY NOTICE THE 3 PRONGS AT THE REAR OF THE HALOGEN BULB, THERE ARE 2 SPRING TYPE WIRES THAT YOU HAVE TO PRESS DOWN AND PULL TOWARDS THE CENTRE TO ALLOW IT TO BE REMOVED, ONCE THEY ARE LOOSENED YOU SHOULD BE ABLE TO REMOVE THE BULB AND REPLACE IT WITH THE NEW ONE BUT DO NOT TOUCH THE NEW BULB WITH YOUR FINGERS AS THE BULB MAY BLOW WHEN YOU TURN THE LIGHTS ON
CHECK THE WATTS ON THE SIDE OF THE OLD BULB AND MAKE SURE THE NEW BULB HAS THE SAME WATTS
REPLACE IN REVERSE ORDER TO REMOVAL

I bought a ceiling fan from lowe's, got it home got ceiling fan up in the bathroom, when we put in the light one of the halogen bulbs does not work , also two of the cobalt blue glass covers are cracked...


If this is a new product and it is defective, take it back to Lowe's and insist on a replacement, talk to the manager if you have to. This site will only advise you on how to fix it.

Halogen light heater


I have same problem Took whole unit apart found upper bulb is connected with wire that goes through out. You hve to physically take bulb out through side without electronic panel wire is connected on panel sid with actual plug. but ended up cutting wire other side. Bulb is not like regular bulb you will have to hard wire one side of it. bulb is unseperable from wire. Still looking for replacement bulb. I sure miss my toaster I believe it will probably be chaper for me to buy new toaster vs replace bulb. The bulb is nothing like I have seen before.
