Question about Miele DA220 Kitchen Hood

Lights not working

In an electrical storm, the halogen lights flashed a bright light then all went out. I have replaced the bulbs but that has made no difference. Power still comes into the unit and the fan operates. The switch for the lights indicates green yet the lights do not light. To me it appears to be the transformer for the lights has gone but I am not sure where the transformer is to remove and test it. I have removed the filter screens and can see the fan housings and a variety of components but none is obvious to be a transformer and I was hoping to avoid removing the entire interior electrical components to locate it. Can you help to identify what the possible problems could be and if it is the transformer - where is it and what does it look like? Thanks for your help.

Either the light power supply or a board gone. Haven't worked on one of these for ages. From memory, they are a pain. Miele appliances are difficult to repair if you are not trained. You may have to drop the whole unit to get to the electronics. Not hard, just a pain.

SOURCE: Miele DA270 Vent Hood Light Bulbs

I just bought two at Home Depot for around $7 each. I, too, saw the inexpensive internet ones and decided to spend the extra money and look at them first. I bought bulbs by Philips, called Desk & Cabinet (for enclosed bulbs). They are 20W and 12 volts as you said. It's a G4 Base T3. Now that I have these, I'll likely buy the cheaper ones next time.

SOURCE: the lights and fan didn't

There may be a reset, but it may be due to a power surge burning out the controller board.

12 V halogen track (8 bulbs; replaced withLED); turned on Lutron dv600p dimmer; lights lit & frying sound; then off. all bulbs still good. Differential diagnosis for transformer vs Lutron problem?

Halogen work with AC or DC voltage ... 12 volt LED bulbs are DC.
Check that transformer delivers DC, or buy 100 watt IP67 LED driver.
Keep in mind the lutron DV-600 is rated for incandescent and halogen loads, and may not function as expected when connected to inductive load like transformer or driver.

My Sirius Range Hood has two lights that take G4 Halogen bulbs. Is there a 115V bulb made for this application or is there something that converts the voltage to 12V?

These Halogen bulbs are inefficient, and run so hot that they often damage the reflector and bulb socket if they are left on too long. Fortunately there is an easy fix for this. At most stores that sell the exact replacement Halogen bulbs (Lowes, Home Depot and others) you will see a selection of LED bulbs on the same display rack that will fit into the same socket the Halogen bulbs use. It is IMPORTANT that you know the code number stamped on the base of your Halogen bulb AND its voltage because some Halogen bulbs are 12 volts and some are 110 volts. If you can't read the labeling on the bulb, look for the wiring diagram usually glued inside the range hood or look in your owner's manual. Once you know your Halogen bulb's code number, look at the packages that the LED replacements come in. There will be a list of Halogen bulb code numbers that the LEDs are meant to replace. The male sockets on these LED replacements will be shaped just like the sockets on your original Halogen bulbs so they will plug in easily. However, just like LEDs bulbs that replace the old incandescent bulbs in your table lamps or ceiling sockets, they have an electronic section included in there base to run the LEDs and it makes the LED bulb slightly longer than the much simpler Halogen bulb. For my stove hood it meant that the bulb would not quite fit into the reflector in the hood. I had to use a Dremel tool to remove a bit of the reflector to get a proper fit. The LED bulb is just as bright but runs SO much cooler and uses so much less electricity that now I can use the range hood as a night light in the kitchen. I never felt safe doing that with the two Halogen bulbs since they ran so hot that they were burning the fixture that held them in the stainless steel hood and were melting the wiring entering the socket base. This upgrade to your range hood is well worth the effort.

Bright went out after replacing the headlight

Replace with new bulb you must not touch the glass part of the bulb.oils from fingers will cause it to burn out, also make sure that there is no condensation inside of the bulb housing as this will cause the bulb to short out and possibly cause a fire

Halogen lights will draw more voltage than the standard lights and will more than likely cause electrical problems by wires and switches and such getting overheated.

reasons bulbs keep blowning.your head light bulbs is halogen bulbs.dont touch with bare hands.the oils on your hands will make them over heat and blow.so use clean gloves on your hands when replacing the head light bulbs.if all is good.check alternator out put.it could be overcharging causing too much current flow through electrical circuit blowing out bulbs.use a digital volt meter hook it battery with car running battery voltage should be 13.5 to 14.5 volts. if it is 15 to 16 volts too many volts.alternator is faulty.due to lock out features turn off radio before disconnecting battery cables so you wont lose radio playing code.

As for your dash lights, and electric locks, check your fuses. If the blue high beam light on your dash comes on, but the headlights don't get bright, your bulbs have burnt out, and need to be replaced. They probably went one at a time, but you didn't notice until the second one went. If the high beam indicator isn't coming on, it's probably your switch.
