I have a Cannon Cooker Hood BHC120 which is about 10 years

This answer was rated:

I have a Cannon Cooker Hood BHC120 which is about 10 years old. Both spot lights went out last week (at the same time). Replaced both but they don't work. Any idea what the probable cause is and how difficult to repair myself.
Hello, my name is George..
There is a fuse on the main board that could be causing the problem... if this is not the case, test the 240v input to the transformer and the 12v output from the transformer to test if the transformer is defective.
Kindly be patient whilst awaiting any responses from me as I'm not constantly available.

Thanks for that George - Can you tell me where the main board and transformer are within the hood? Do I need to dismount it or can I get to them by removing the star headed screws in the skirting around the mounting frame for the metal filters, which I already have out?
Sorry, for your particular one ~I do not know... However, I do know that if you follow the cable from the operating controls you will find the board because the cables run straight to it.
They are normally behind the filters somewhere.. look for a metal or plastic box.
I do not have an exploded diagram for this model.. I only have the wiring diagram
Also have a look behind the turret / funnel, as I did one yesterday where the transformer and the pcb where side-by-side under the funnel.

Hi George. Sorry for delay, I've been away. Took it partially to bits and found ask per the attached photos. Also a wiring diagram but still doesn't help as to where the main board or transformer is located.
