I have a GE Monogram, 36 Island Vent Hood. The Model is ZV850.

This answer was rated:

I have a GE Monogram, 36" Island Vent Hood. The Model is ZV850. The four halogen lights are not working. I changed two of the bulbs and none of the lights and nothing is working. However, the fan is working at all levels though. Anything I can do myself?

Our repair man looked at it and would like to know why the transformer is was warm?

Thank your, Holly

Hi, thanks for using Please remember, I do not get paid for my time and expertise until you accept. The bulbs are a special 12 volt bulb, not a 120 volt bulb. Did you verify the bulb voltage? If you installed 120 volt bulbs, the transformer will need to be replaced. Below is the service manual for your hood as well as a link to the transformer and bulbs.


Bulb $25.60


Transformer $157.50

I looked at the bulbs. the ge bulb was 35 w, 12v. Ours was 20 w, 12 v. Do you think that could be the problem?


Where can I purchase the ge bulbs besides on line?

The bulbs are likely not going to be found locally, they are a specialty bulb.
