Zephyr Kitchen Ranges - Recent Questions, Troubleshooting & Support
I have a Zephyr range hood with GU10 bulbs. Easy to remove , unable to re-install. I'm the 3rd person on this journey.
The two small pins on the bottom of the bulb must line up with the small holes in the base of the socket. This can be tricky since you can't see it once the bulb is inserted. Make sure their nothing already in one of the socket pin holes (like part of the old bulb) and the note the socket hole locations and (lightly, using your finger tips) fit the bulb up into the socket and wiggle it until the pins and holes align. It does fit, but sometimes it is not without a challenge.
Our zephyr vent hood fan turns itself on, about two or three times a week. Often late at night, waking us up. What can we do to fix this?
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

I am also looking for instructions for PLHV36W6CC.
The fan is on right now but the switch is sliding back and forth loosely.
I just downloaded the manual but that was no help.
If someone has a quick solution, that would be great.

I have stuck my hand up and fiddled around but besides just ripping it out, could use some help.
