GE Profile Range Hood. The diode on the light switch has burned out and will no longer dim. I would like to replace the diode, but need specifications on what to buy, assuming the parts are available at a local store.

Hello,

Most HV diodes have press fit (Fast-On) or ring lugs so replacement is very straightforward. Discharge the high voltage capacitor. Make sure you get the polarity correct if your replacement can be installed either way. Putting the diode in backwards will result in positive instead of negative high voltage and, needless to say, no heat, but no other symptoms either.
Note: the lugs on your new HV diode may just be crimped onto the wire leads and not welded or soldered. If this is the case, take care not to stress them excessively which might result in bad connections now or in the future. It may be a good idea to solder the lugs to the wires as well (though this may be overkill).
Where the diode is part of the capacitor assembly, it may be possible to just replace the diode leaving the old one unconnected (at one end) as long as the original diode isn't tied to ground inside the case. This will probably be much much cheaper than replacing the entire assembly.
Hope this workout......

Ge hood insert zvc36l1ss fan comes on by itself. When not cooking?


The switch is bad. That makes it a possible fire or electrical hazard.

You should replace the switch immediately, or at least turn off the breaker that supplies power to the unit.

Don't let a broken $20 part be responsible for burning your home to the ground, fix it!

Ge oven model xl44. my oven will not lite, the broiler works fine.


Hi..

You need to do this

  • Replace the bulb
  • Test the switch
The interior oven light in most ovens is a standard 40 watt appliance bulb. Often, to change the bulb, you first need to remove a shield or glass dome. If the bulb isn't burned out, the problem may be with the switch on the oven door frame. If the switch works poorly, intermittently, or not at all, you need to replace it.

When an indicator light has stopped working, you may be able to replace just the bulb--but you usually have to replace the entire light assembly. Alternatively, there could be a problem with your burner sensor (stuck open or closed) or your indicator light circuit.


Good luck !!
