Question about Miele DA220 Kitchen Hood
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.

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.
