Question about Broan-NuTone Allure QS130SS Kitchen Hood

2 Answers

I turned the lights on the high setting for a couple of hours, and the bulb just blew out. I then touched the top of the hood and it was very hot. Should a bulb blow out for no reason? I am worried that it wasn't installed properly?

Often, a high wattage lamp is put into these fixtures. Also, these lamps are often standard lamps not appliance. I suggest you replace your lamp with one no bigger than 25 watts and is rated for appliance use. If you absolutely cannot live with the 25, try a clear 40 watt.

Thanks for your question today.

Check the documentation and make sure the wattage on the light bulb does not exceed what is recommended. For instance: Mine says no more than 75 watts incandescent light bulb.

My Sony KDF50E-2000, the projection light went out, i replaced it, it was working, then the replacement light went out too. Is this something with the TV or do I need to buy another light?


There are a few common causes for rapid bulb failure. If you touched the replacement bulb with your bare skin, oils on your skin will cause hot spots on the glass and can cause quick failure. Also, there are cooling fans that provide cooling for the bulb. If these are not working, bulb failure will occur.

Replacing front marker light bulb on a 1994 ford escort ?


When you lift up the hood you should see two or three screws holding the entire lens in place. Remove the screws, pull out the lens and then you will be able to replace the bulb with relative ease. Remember not to touch the new bulb with your fingers. The oils on your fingers will greatly reduce the life of the bulb if not blow it in a couple hours.

Light bulb keeps blowing


The light from a light bulb is caused by the metal filament being white hot, over 1000 degrees Centigrade, so touching hot isn't too much in those circumstances! However there may be a ventilation problem in the bulb area but our machines are just the same in the bulb area. A bulb that has gone black has had an air leak into the glass envelope and this it may well be a just poor quality bulb.
Are you getting the correct bulb? Some shops will supply one for a normal light which has a weaker construction and is not suited to vibration and working in an enclosed area. If you (or the shop) use a bulb with a higher wattage than specified with the good intention of supplying a better light it could also be supplying more heat....
A genuine Janome bulb - if you can get one - may cost more but should last a lot longer. I don't want to say your sewing supply shop is not providing the right bulb but ....

The other possibility is that you have just had a run of bad luck to counteract someone else's good luck of not having a bulb blow. Sorry (but thanks!).

Finally, try to avoid touching the bulb with your bare hands when you fit the new one. All peoples, everybody's, hands have a natural layer of oils on the surface that can cause hot spots on a bulb surface and make it blow. If you have any acetone type thinners (nail varnish remover) give the bulb a wipe over with that before fitting to make sure it is thoroughly clean and use a piece of new clean cloth to hold it when you are fitting the bulb.

Good luck

THE STOVE TOP LIGHT ONDER THE MICROWAVE BLEW OUT. WHEN I REPLACED THE BULB BOTH LIGHTS NO NOT WORK.


Sounds like a power source issue from under the hood.
Unplug or turn off all power and take a closer look in there,. alternatively - this may sound crazy, but are you certain both bulbs are working by testing in another fixture??

I startup engine, then, turned headlights. The headlights had been on about 2 seconds, then, both headlights were suddenly off. High beam lights are ok. Today, I went to AutoZone and changed new fuse (15a)...


Maybe the low beam of both headlights blew up. Headlight bulbs have 2 coils, 1 for high beam and 1 for low beam. Just like a regular light bulb, when the coil breaks the light doesn't work. But the high beams are still ok. If you've never changed em, 8 years come around its probably around time to replace them. If you can, see if you can remove the bulbs. It's pretty easy, for most cars its just locate where the lights are located under the hood, then turn the headlight bulb housing counter clockwise and should pull out. inspect it for any broken coils. if you need to replace both, get the part number or take it to a parts store and ask an employee for help. If you reinstall it yourself, be sure not to let your fingers touch the new bulb. if you do, clean it with rubbing alcohol before you put it back in the housing.

How do i change a headlight


1.FACE THE VEHICLE SO THAT BATTERY IS ON YOUR RIGHT;

2. REMOVE THE BLACK PLASTIC PIECE THAT RUNS OVER RADIATOR BETWEEN HOOD LATCH AND FAN. IT IS ABOUT 53 1/2" LONG AND HOLDS THE HOOD PROP CLIP. (3 PLASTIC PUSH RETAINERS & 2 SHEET METAL SCREWS);

3. REMOVE THE GRILL ASSEMBLY UNDERNEATH THE PIECE IN STEP 2 BY PUSHING DOWN FIRMLY ON 4 RETAINER CLIPS WHICH RUN ALONG THE TOP. USE A WIDE SLOT SCREWDRIVER. PULL UP GENTLY ON GRILL ASSEMBLY. IT WILL POP OUT. THE GRILL ASSEMBLY EXTENDS UNDER EACH HEADLIGHT ASSEMBLY (HA) AND IT DISPLAYS THE CHEVROLET LOGO IN THE MIDDLE. MY GRILL ASSEMBLY POPPED OUT EASILY AND ALL THE OTHER RETAINER CLIPS ON THE BOTTOM AND BENEATH AND TO THE SIDE OF HA WERE AUTOMATICALLY RELEASED WITHOUT ANY FUSS;

4. ON TOP OF HA SEE ONE TAB (ABOUT 1" LONG)ON THE RIGHT SIDE AND ONE ON THE LEFT (THE ONE ON L IS CLOSER TO THE FENDER);

5. PULL UPWARD DIRECTION ON TABS. THEY WILL SLIDE UPWARD A COUPLE OF INCHES AND WILL RELEASE THE HA WHICH YOU CAN THEN PULL OUT TOWARDS YOU;

6.AT BACK OF THE HA, REMOVE 2 ROUND RUBBER CAPS (ABOUT 4" IN DIAMETER)--ONE FOR LOW BEAM--ONE FOR HIGH. REVEAL BULBS. UNSNAP THE WIRE HARNESS FROM BULB BASE AND TURN BULB 1/4 TURN CLOCKWISE (REMEMBER YOU ARE FACING THE TRUCK)

7.REPLACE BULB(S). #9006 BULB IS GRAY-BASE, FOR HIGH BEAM ON OUTSIDE. #9005 IS BLACK-BASE, LOW BEAM TO INSIDE OF HIGH BEAM.

CHANGING HIGH AND LOW AND REASSEMBLY TOOK ABOUT HALF HOUR. GOOD LUCK.

ALTERNATIVE:
IF YOU ARE REPLACING THE PASSENGERSIDE HEADLIGHT JUST REMOVE THE AIR FILTER COVER AND PULL PLUG OUR FROM BEHIND HEADLIGHT AND REPLACE. BE CAREFUL HANDLING LIGHT BULB.
TO CHANGE THE ONE ON THE DRIVER'S SIDE JUST REACH IN FRONT OF THE BATTERY TO ACCESS THE PLUG AND HEADLILGHT. TOOK ABOUT 5 MINUTES. ENJOY YOU TRAILBLAZER, GREAT TRUCK.

How do I replace a headlight bulb in my 1996 Olds achieva


How to Replace a Headlight Bulb
(DIY Complexity: Easy / Time: 0.9 hour)

Parts:
1. Headlight Bulb

Tools:
1. Screwdriver
2. 1/4 in. Drive Ratchet
3. Socket Set

HIGH PERFORMANCE HALOGEN HEADLIGHT BULB -- Low 45/high 65 watts, Dual C-8 filament for both high beam and low beam; 100 percent legal halogen headlight bulbs; Features the whitest and brightest light color similar to daylight for safer night driving; Meets all US FMVSS 108 and Canadian CMVSS 108 requirements.

Steps:
Step 1 Open the hood and locate the headlight assembly.
o Tip: Most headlight assemblies have a place in the rear to gain access to the headlight bulb.
o Tip: It is recommended that headlight bulbs are replaced in pairs.
o Tip: Always make sure the struts on the hood can fully support the weight of the hood so that it does not close on you while working. The use of a hood prop can securely hold it in place.
o Tip: Safety Tip:Always wear safety glasses when working on your vehicle. Wear other personal protective equipment (PPE) when necessary, for example latex gloves or safety shoes.

Step 2 Gain access to headlight bulb.
o Tip: It is a good idea to check the high beam and low beam headlight bulbs at this time.

Step 3 Disconnect the wiring harness and replace the old headlight bulb with a new one.

KDF E60A20 screen goes blank loses sound for 10 60 seconds


I've had this same problem ongoing for a couple weeks. Finally, tonight it would shut off every 20-30 seconds, stay off for another 20-30 seconds then come back on. It turned out to be my bulb. I blew the TV out with compressed air, removed the bulb and disassembled it. Taking the bulb out of the plastic cage I then remove one of the metal screens at the top of the bulb, it just has little clips holding it in. I took a bottle of rubbing alcohol, some Q-tips and proceeded to clean the inside of the bulb through the screen hole. After cleaning the inside I put the screen back in, cleaned the outside of the bulb with a rag and alcohol, then reassembled everything. The TV is much brighter, I had to turn down the brightness setting and has been running the last few hours without an issue. You can avoid all this by buying a new bulb but I don't have the money right now to replace it and I'm cheap so I'll milk this bulb for everything it has. Heat kills bulbs so if you clean the screens and blow out the TV once every couple months you'll get a lot of life out of it..... I'm almost to 4 years on my original bulb and my TV is on constantly!! Good luck to all!!

WS3 Broan Allure Range Hood Premier 36 inch


Hi shealy,

I'm Harvey the Master Plumber.

Your problem is: This hood worked fine until a light bulb blew out. Put in a new light bulb, but the lights will not turn off. Is the light switch bad or is there a problem with the control panel? The fan still works fine but the lights will not turn off or adjust dim or bright.

You're on the right track. The light control switch needs replacing. You might try utilizing the Repair Directory to find a repairman. If you have the tools and ability just remember to turn off the electric first.

Feel free contact me again!
