Question about Zephyr (AK2100A) Kitchen Hood
Turn bulb counter clockwise about a third of a turn and then pull down. Sometimes dishwashing gloves make it easier to grab the bulb.

Use a large ammount of bluetack on the glass - and wear leather gloves for safety.
Look closely at the replacement bulb to check the type of fitting.
Halogens with point pins pull straight out. Thicker mushroom pins turn anticlockwise before dropping out.
Edison screws obviously unscrew anticlockwise.
If the above method fails for straight pin versions, wrap string around the body of bulb and pull out using string.
Hope this helps

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!

To replace the bulb you need to use a suction cup to grab the bulb then turn counter clock wise.
If you need the manual it is on the link below. Page 18
Good Luck and please rate 4 thumbs up for the free answer.

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.
