Replacing the halogen lamps
The hood liner uses 12-volt, 20 watt halogen lamp bulbs.
Before you begin, make sure that the range hood is turned off
and that the lamps have had sufficient time to cool.
Never touch a halogen bulb with bare hands. Even a small
amount of oil from your hands could cause the bulb to explode
when it heats up. If you do touch the bulb directly, clean it with a
soft cloth and rubbing alcohol, and let it dry thoroughly, before
turning it on.
To replace a halogen lamp:
1. Remove 2 screws from the circular metal trim around the
lamp assembly.
2. Pull the trim with the lamp assembly attached down far
enough so that the lamp can be pushed out of the socket clips.
3. Insert the new lamp into the socket clips and push the lamp
and trim assembly back up into the hood.
4. Replace the screws
