Another solution...I think I have the same hood, and the bulb has a flat face and is nearly flush with the unit.
I use one of those rubber mats that help you get a grip on a tight jar lid. The bulb has just enough exposed rim that I can get a grip and make that hard first untwist.

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

How do i change a bulb on a zephyr verona range hood


I could not turn the bulb, and the rubber glove approach did not work. I unscrewed and removed the middle cover, which meant I could easily reach inside and turn the whole light bulb fixture.

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.

Can I replace the light bulbs without removing the whole panel ?


Yes, it is possible to replace the light bulbs without removing the panel that surrounds the two bulbs. The problem is that those bulbs get slippery because of cooking oil splatters.
I recommend that you use a paper towel and some window cleaner (aka: Windex) Spray the towel and clean the bulb. Let each dry and turn the bulb to loosen it out. Use the moist paper towel to help turn is needed. Be so careful to not break the bulb as you remove it. Good Luck!

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.

Need to change lightbulb of Zephyr Savona Zsa-m90s


I'm not sure if my Savona is the same one, but on mine, just remove the filter and you can see the base of the light bulb up above the fan base. You can see where the bulb screws into the fixture. Grab the ceramic portion of the bulb, and turn that part. You may want to steady the socket with your other hand because it is very flimsy.

Can't figure out how to get bulbs out of hood to replace on Zephyr Milano-G ZMI-M90G Kitchen Hood


just use an adjustable pliers wide enough to grip the outer small edges. Grip, turn counter clock wise and remove. The other way to do this is unscrew the panel behind the filters and you should be able to reach the neck of the bulbs.
