Light Bulb Replacement

Range hood light bulbs will burn out over time. Below are replacement instructions for the types of bulbs used in Vent-A-Hood® range hoods.

Safety is important when is comes to replacing a light bulb of a range hood. The first thing to remember is to turn off power and allow lights to cool before proceeding.

Halogen Bulbs

To remove the bulb, turn it counter clockwise. If the light is difficult to remove, obtain a bulb suction cup from a lighting or hardware store. Replace the bulb with a PAR20 120 volt, 50 watt halogen bulb (Vent-A-Hood® part number P1130) or with a GU10 120 volt, 50 watt halogen bulb (Vent-A-Hood® part number P1110) for newer models.

Fluorescent Bulbs and Starter

Covered fixtures- To remove the lamp, face the hood, remove the plastic cover, grasp the bulb at each end, and twist down and away.

Hold the new lamp at each end and rotate it slowly into the sockets until it locks into position.

To remove the starter, turn the starter counter clockwise (when looking into the starter). Replace the starter with a FS-2 type starter (Vent-A-Hood® part number P1105).
