Thank you for your question on the model RL6230WH range hood. The RL6230WH requires the use of a 75 watt maximum incandescent bulb. We only recommend that you use the type of bulb listed in the installation instructions for your range hood. Substituting a fluorescent bulb for an incandescent bulb can be done and does not void the warranty, but it may produce less then satisfying results. Due to the higher heat generated by cooking, the lifespan of the bulb could be greatly shortened. Improper controls for the fluorescent bulbs can also cause flickering in low light settings or even no light at all.
