Hi, the bulbs in my Whirlpool extractor hood have blown one at a time - I could not see how to extract them though - I've tried twisting, pulling etc - could you advise? Also, when the second bulb went, the fan suddenly stopped working - any ideas what I need to do or replace?

Hi nogoodwithelectricstuff, the bulbs are most likely screw fit - they may just be a bit tight. If they're really not coming out after a bit of welly, look at the housing in which the bulb sits. Are there any screws holding it in place? If there are, remove them and maybe that will help in getting the bulbs out. With regard to the fan not working either - it sounds as if the fuse has blown. Replace the fuse in the plug and you should be all good. Best of luck.
QIs there an energy saving bulb I can use instead? e.g. 8 watt?1 Answer

Hi Hilary, sourcing and supplying energy efficient light bulbs is something that's very important to us. We are currently in the process of finding as many efficient alternatives as possible. Sadly though, we've as yet been unable to source one for cooker hoods.
I am having trouble finding replacement bulb for cooker hood. hace bought 1 thats too long and another that is too round! I can't see the make of hood but the serial no is TCANW.

In order to find the right bulb for your cooker hood I will need your specific model number. For help finding your model number, refer to our handy Finding Model Numbers guide here: http://www.espares.co.uk/findingmodelnumbers.aspx
