My rangehood lights have suddenly died (less that 2 years

Customer Question

my rangehood lights have suddenly died (less that 2 years old) and I am not sure what to do. It is a 90-cm canopy rangehood, can't remember to exact model (maybe SA900CXA) but it has 3-part filter panels and LED (I think) lights running across the length at the front (closer to user/cook) part of the rangehood. What should I do?
thanks, maria

Hi, welcome to Just Answer. My name is ***** ***** I look forward to helping you! It is likely that the main controller has failed or the transformer for the lights is faulty. Do you have a meter to perform any voltage testing with?

What should I do? How do I check that?

Do you have a meter to perform any voltage testing with? We will need to determine where we are losing voltage.
