Light went out, cannot remove it.
I am having extreme difficulty removing the bulb from the socket. I even tried to remove the filter and access the bulb this way, but nothing is working. I can't replace the bulb now. Why is it not coming out easily? It will twist to the left and to the right, but both directions seem to tighten it.
I have the same problem but here is how I fix it:
(** first find a way to unplug the power for the unit just to be on the safe side **)
1. Unscrew the 5 screws at the front, then you should be able to take the front (light) panel off.
2. Disconnect the electric cable plug (pretty easy to unplug, just need to use a bit more force)
3. Put in some WD-40 right at the gap between the bulb and the socket , so it will lubricate the screwing area (it's because the oil grease made it stuck)
4. Unscrew it by turning it counter-clockwise. Now you are should be good! I will also unscrew the other bulb, put it in the socket you're replacing (and it should light up) so to make sure the socket is indeed working.

Why does only one side of the light panel now work?
Changed out the light bulbs for a cooler version and now only one side of the light panel now work? We have changed the bulbs several times and removed the light panel to make sure that all of the wiring was still in tact and still connected.
Thank you for your question on the WS130BC. It is possible that one of the light sockets is defective, but please check one thing first. Some of the light bulb manufacturers are shortening the necks of their light bulbs and when they are placed in certain fixtures, the neck isn’t long enough to get to the bottom of the socket. If this is not happening with yours, please contact our Technical Service Department at 888-336-6151

Can I use charcoal filter and have this duct to outside?
Thank you for your question on the model WS130SS range hood. The charcoal filter is normally used when the unit is installed as non-ducted, but there would not be a problem using the aluminum mesh grease filter and the charcoal filter when the unit is installed ducted to the outside.

My new WS130SS range hood fan has a "humming" sound in addition to the airflow sound.
My WS130SS range hood was recently installed by a Home Depot contractor. The hood is vented via the 3.25" x 10" vertical mounted vent. Airflow seems to be working properly (Kleenex held up to filter when fan is running stays on filter until fan turned off). The "humming" sound gets much louder on the high fan speed. I would like to know possible causes and fixes before I get the Home Depot contractor here to correct the problem.
Thank you for your question on the model WS130SS range hood. It is possible that the damper is not opening properly or there is something wrong with the motor. If this happened immediately after installation, I would contact Home Depot to check it out or for a replacement. Please contact the Technical Service Department at 888-336-6151 if you need further assistance.
