SOURCE: took off trim around lightbulb

Place the circle of the springs on the two small post that are in the center piece of the trim that heads into the hood, make sure that the two legs of the springs are to the outside of the post. The small legs should lay against outside the center piece. The larger legs should be angled downward. Look in the hood and you should see a piece of metal with a central vertical opening on each side. Take the trim piece with the springs attached and lift the wings of the springs so that they enter the slits. The important part is that the small legs of the springs must be placed against the outside surtace of the hood. As you push the trim piece in the hood the wings of the spring will be forced down through the slits by the pressure of the small legs of the spring against the exterior of the surface of the hood. This pressure will keep the trim piece in place. It may help to remove the filters so that you can see inside of the hood. Make sure that the small legs of the spring are against the outside surface of the hood or there will not be any resistance to create pressure by the springs.

SOURCE: Dacor oven light bulb

Yeah, it's a rip-off isn't it? Been there. :-( Find the bulb part number or electrical values and search eBay. I think this is what you're looking for:

G4 halogen 12v 10w, dacor part 86364.

A search right now shows multiple vendors offering 10-piece packs for $7.00 including shipping. I'm about to order a set myself.

SOURCE: What if you don't have the suction cup/light

not certain about the afore mentioned resolution...but here is how i did it...i buy work gloves with a latex rubber coating...i put a pair of these on and was able to get a good grip with my fingers to spin the light out of the socket....the cover lens popped off....but that was ok...i got a better grip on the inside of the light...came right out. i will certainly be applying some wd40 to the next bulb i put in....

Best (Broan) K260A - I tried to change the bulb as well....completely inaccessible to change with hands (bulb is set deeper in hood, not even flush) tried gloves, rubber jar opener but cannot get access to...


The lamp holder assembly snaps into a hole in the range hood with spring clips. To remove the light bulbs, you simply push and turn, like older, bayonet style automotive turn signal bulbs. It seems you have broken your lamp holder assembly. Just break the trim ring so it can be removed, or you can try to take it out reverse polish style by releasing the spring clips from the middle inwards. Once the trim ring is loose, you can extract the body of the lamp holder through the hole... the wires will be barely long enough to stick out the hole if you are lucky. If you are crafty, you may fashion a repair on the separated lamp socket assembly. If not, your replacement part number is SV16569. just call nutone-broan at 800-558-1711 and they will be glad to ship you a new lamp shell socket trim assembly.
25439092-xipalmoknr3fbjmp51kycajc-3-0.jpg Retail on that part is around $50.

We can't unscrew the bulb from our ihl48 dacor vent hood insert. Someone said to just unscrew it like a light bulb in a lamp but that isn't working. We are afraid to torque it any harder. Any suggestions?


Hello. Be sure to kill the power to the hood at the breaker. Then back to the bulb.
Yes it does unscrew like any bulb. [right is tight and left is loose]. Wear a glove on the hand you will unscrew the bulb with. If it does break, no problem; then use a pair of needle nosed vise grips to grab hold of the metal threaded ring and unscrew it. Often times these bulbs are exposed to so much moisture that they corrode resulting in the difficulty you are having.

4 thumbs up please. ty Joe

How do you get the light bulb out of the hood?


there is a tool (suction cup) that dacor provides with unit or you can order the "kit" online for $30. i used some gloves with latex coating on palms to get "decent grip" to spin it out. that stainless stell rim actually pops out on my ventilation hood....it is similar to recessed lighting baffles...spring loaded....it may give you a bit more room to manuever your fingers.

Dacor IVS1 Vent Hood - How to change a light bulb?


Buylighting.com, JDR120V-75W-E27CG...also comes in 50 watt. They aren't inexpensive, but if installed properly, will last a while. We have a little suction cup to take them out and put them in. It came with the range hood. If you get fingerprints on a halogen bulb, it can blow out quicker.
