the 4 lights are out on my hotpoint extractor unit (HDi 93X)

Customer Question

the 4 lights are out on my hotpoint extractor unit (HDi 93X) - one bulb looks like it's gone but replacing it hasn't helped. Is there a fuse in the unit somewhere that would need replacing?

Thanks in advance!

hi Tech Michael!


It's full mdel number is 50968 - HDI193X - it's coming up to 4 years old


The rest of the unit works fine - the extraction, the extraction boost and so on, it's just the 4 lights built into the extractor hood refuse to come on. I thought it was because one had blown, but i've replaced that and still nothing. the other 3 look ok (the one i replaced look grey at the end).


does that help at all?

Hi Jon,
Thank you for that that.
The trouble could be a loose wire leading to the panel lights. But it also could be a problem with the control board because that is waht sends the signal to the lights.
If they all went out at the same time though... its likely a ground wire issue:-)
If you take it apart, it may clear itself?
Try it!
