Problems changing a light bulb :)

Hi I have tried a number of different ways to get the darn light bulb out, but I am afraid I am going to break something else. I have a dacor model # IVs1. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
Alicia

    I have the same hood and will also need to suction cup. Does anyone know the part number for the light bulb as I cannot locate a bulb to fit this hood either?

You need the suction bulb that came with the unit.  In case you do not have it, it is part #62408 and is about $2.00.  I am trying to figure out for myself how to get the lens cover off in order to access the bulb, and how to replace it when the new bulb is put in.

How do I remove burned out light bulbs from zephyr range hood? What do I replace them with?


What model range hood do you have? To remove most of the bulbs from a Zephyr hood, wait for the bulb to cool after use. Then rotate the bulb counter-clockwise about 60 degrees (less than a quarter turn) and the bulb should drop down. If you have problems turning the bulb, try the glass suction cup that comes with the hood or a rubber/latex glove grip. Sometimes a rubber jar grip will also work.

The one way to find out your range hood bulb may be to remove one and look at the side/back. The bulbs are labeled. Otherwise, check your manual. Zephyr has the manuals for most of their ranges here: http://zephyronline.com/customer_support . Use the drop-down menu to select your model.

Different hoods use different bulbs. For AK6500, 6536, 6542 Cyclone hoods, purchase type: 4OR 14 mini flood light bulbs. For the AK2500, 2536 hoods, you need to purchase type GU 10 halogen bulbs. For the Anzio models, including the ZAN-E30AS, get a GU-10 50W halogen bulb.

I hope this helps.

We can't unscrew the bulb from our ihl48 dacor vent hood insert. Someone said to just unscrew it like a light bulb in a lamp but that isn't working. We are afraid to torque it any harder. Any suggestions?


Hello. Be sure to kill the power to the hood at the breaker. Then back to the bulb.
Yes it does unscrew like any bulb. [right is tight and left is loose]. Wear a glove on the hand you will unscrew the bulb with. If it does break, no problem; then use a pair of needle nosed vise grips to grab hold of the metal threaded ring and unscrew it. Often times these bulbs are exposed to so much moisture that they corrode resulting in the difficulty you are having.

4 thumbs up please. ty Joe

I'm trying to change a light bulb in napoli zepher hood. I can't seem to unscrew the old bulb....what do I do now?


Standard bulb? Make sure the power is off. Put on a glove and keep trying. If you end up breaking it, try a screw driver into the base. No luck, you can get a replacement lamp holder at a appliance parts or hardware store. I have a tool designed to remove the broken base, but that does you no good and I dont know if they are made any longer. I got mine in '64.

Your lamp has been in so long, it baked itself into the socket (grease, etec)

How do I change light bulbs on a Zephyr Milano hood?


Hi elenara, try applying slight upward pressure as you turn the bulb. Remember righty tighty, lefty loosy. This worked for us, now if I could only find a replacement bulb. Good luck!

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.

Light blub burnt out


The easiest way to remove the light bulb is to wear a rubber glove, use your palm to press against the bulb, and turn counter-clockwise.

The suction created by the rubber glove should allow you to remove the light bulb easily.

Belling cooker hood chim101 BL - light/ lamp


I just had this very same problem and believe I have solved it!
You can remove the entire light unit from the hood. On first inspection it appears to be a sealed unit that does not allow you to remove either the wires or what looks to be a regular halogen bulb. If you turn the unit so the bulb is facing you, you can gently prise the glass from it's housing leaving the naked halogen bulb exposed beneath it. You can gently pull this from the housing and buy a new one to replace it. I would advise that when installing the new one you make sure it is completely free from any contaminant as any grease etc can greatly reduce the life of the bulb. Hope this helps!

How do you change a halogen bulb in my dacor range hood


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.
