Question about Viking VWH3048 Kitchen Hood

Viking hood Lights out

We have a viking range hood, similar to the VWH3048, the difference is ours has the 1200 blower. The other day, both of our lights went out. We thought it was strange that they went out at the same time, but we went ahead and changed the lights. To our dismay, the new lights didn't come on. Is this something that we can fix ourselves? Any ideas on what happened, my husband thinks that it is either a short or the sockets burned out. Any advice would be appreciated. Same problem my lights did the same thing, one bulb was dead I changed both still no light.

    Check also each bulb-case wiring not to be burned at their edges.

    If you tell us the exact model we can try finding the wiring diagrams.

    Check for a short in the circuits right behind the lamps, or in the cables getting right to the bulbs. Also test the voltage coming to the bulbs.

Vents in the Viking hood fall out on their own


Remove the filters.
The slot that the filters sit in at the rear edge, can be removed, it is basically hooked into place.

When you remove it you will see that the sides are different, reinstall it with the smaller edge hooked thus leaving the larger edge to hold the filters in place.

I hope this is clear.

Viking hood damper


Remove the blower and reach up into the duct through the back flow damper and put weather stripping on the 2 edges that are chattering, it will greatly reduce the noise

Viking hood Lights out


Part PE050033 no longer exists. It's now two parts: PE050141 for the light and PE050156 for the fan. You must first remove all of the small switches then pull off the front panel to tighten the small nuts that hold the new units in place.
