It sounds like there is a restriction in the vent or the hood is to low. It should be at least 18" above the cooking surface.

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!

I am completely guessing but assume it uses electronic switching?
A standard or old sort of cooker hood use mechanical switches, which would have to be seriously faulty to switch themselves on, though water ingress from condensation entering a switch can over time cause a carbonised track to form that could when damp carry enough current to run a low powered motor or alternatively blow the fuse/trip the RCD if the track is a ground path.

With electronic switching there are usually buttons mounted on a circuit board and in order to produce compact dimensions the tracks are very close together. The buttons usually need only make a momentary contact for a very small current to flow and the brain to switch on the motor.
A tiny drop of water entering this unit can cause mayhem...

I would try a hand steamer, it definitely won't affect the stainless and I'm assuming you have a large glass, stainless or tile cplashback. Hope this helps

-If only the wire itself burn then just replace the wire. You'll be okay. But if the switch it self totally burn, all the plastic around already melt down then yes it need to be replace.
-If you totally can't get the original one to replace, you can buy one from Lowes and modify to hole to accept it. It'll be okay as well.

Good luck
