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

I just installed ws130bl range hood but the fan not working?
Thank you for your question on the model WS130BL range hood. If the light is working, it would appear to be wired properly. I would check to see if there is something may have been bent in shipping or installation that may be binding the blade. If nothing is binding the blade, check to see that the motor is completely plugged into its socket. If it is plugged in properly and the motor appears to be bad, please return it to the place of purchase for a replacement.

How do I access the halogen lamp sockets and rocker switch?
Lamps no longer light of Allure WS 1 Rev. F. Must I take the whole hood down to check lamp wiring and switch? I removed three small screws on the enameled metal with holes for lamp, but that did not seem to loosen anything. I am afraid to start prying on seams without understanding how to diasassemble.
Thank you for your question. Remove Light Panel - held in place with (3) #8 screws and (2) #8 screws. Disconnect light assembly wire harness (white connector). This will give you access to the wire harness and light sockets.
