  1. Safety First: Before starting any appliance repair, it's crucial to disconnect the appliance from the electricity supply for safety reasons.
  2. Removing the Lamp Assembly Cover: To access the faulty bulb, you'll need to remove the glass lens cover from the lamp assembly. This can be done using a small screwdriver. Carefully pry off the lamp cover to expose the bulb.
  3. Removing the Old Bulb: The halogen bulb has two prongs and slots into a holder. Gently pull the bulb from the holder, taking care not to apply too much pressure. Note that if the bulb has a black tint, it's a clear sign that the bulb has blown and needs to be replaced.
  4. Prepping and Inserting the New Bulb: Before inserting the new bulb, clean it thoroughly. Always use a cloth or piece of paper to hold the bulb to avoid leaving any oil residue from your fingers on it. This is particularly important with halogen bulbs, as a hot spot caused by oil residue could result in the bulb blowing. Once the bulb is clean, carefully slot it into the holder.
  5. Testing the New Bulb: After installing the new bulb, reconnect the electricity supply and test the lamp to ensure it's working correctly.
  6. Reattaching the Lamp Cover: With the new bulb tested and working, replace the lamp lens cover. This completes the process, and your cooker hood should now be fully operational.

 

Please remember that safety should always be your primary concern when working with electrical appliances. Also, our video includes step-by-step and detailed explanations, which may help you reduce your repair time.
