Light bulb socket replacement for a really old Air Fare kitchen hood

Hi, I'm really having a tough time searching for a replacement for the light bulb socket in my old (looks like >10 years) kitchen hood. I can't see where the model number of the hood is, so I don't know how to get the part. Is there a generic socket for old Air Fare hoods that I can order?

The chances are that your range hood light socket was fully impacted with grease from cooking. Shut the power off to the range hood or, in many applications, simply unplug the power cord. Remove the socket. Get a spray can of electrical parts cleaner and saturate the socket through the tiny pin holes you may see at back of socket. shake out all of the cleaner fluid. Somehow hang the socket up with bulb base facing up all night. Hook it up. That might solve the problem.

It worked for me very recently on a 20 year old range hood.

DON'T USE ANYTHING OTHER THAN AN OFFICIAL ELECTRICAL PARTS CLCEANER. Most hardware stores, etc., have it.

The light bulb keeps blowing out. Have the wires or socket gone bad and can that be replaced?


Remove the bulb and look closely inside the socket. If you see any evidence of burning or that it has been hot, replace the light socket. You can buy a replacement that will work at most any hardware store.

1988 pathfinder no dash lights no revers lights no tail lights no gaiges


If they all stopped working at the same time then it is probably a fuse or possibly 2. Check your fuse panels in the dash and under the hood. The dash lights and gauges should be a fuse labeled instrument cluster or guages, it is probably blown. The other fuse to look for will be the tail light fuse. This is where I would begin.

Hood Light Problem


This is a light socket problem, and it has plagued hoods for years simply because grease builds up there and is acidic. One fix is to disconnect the power and wash the socket with alcohol, then buff with steel wool being careful to leave no steel wool behind. After cleaning you will need to re-tension the little aluminum/brass button at the bottom of the socket by placing a screwdriver under it and gently lifting it about 30 degrees upwards. Replace the bulbs with ONLY the stated wattage bulbs indicated on the panel.

Need replacement bulbs for it, they are european style.


I have spent the last 3 months searching for them. Started in Italy and ended up in Michigan. No luck. The only choice you really have like myself is to replace the light sockets. That will also save you a headache when the bulbs need replacing again.

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 doesn't work on Kenmore Model 55022 Range hood...


If you have 120VAC on the center contact of the light socket, and a working fan, but the bulb won't light...the most likely cause would be a disconnected neutral wire (white) in the light wiring inside the hood....assuming everything else is wired correctly.

If you're comfortable with further electrical testing...let me know, and I can describe a detailed procedure to check the status of the neutral wire. Otherwise, you may need the assistance of someone familiar with electrical troubleshooting or appliance repair.
