Trying to change transformer but NO IDEA where it is... Behind

Customer Question

Trying to change transformer but NO IDEA where it is... Behind the switches?

Hello, my name is George..
As you remove the filters and look up straight ahead there is an oblong metal box.. The transformer is in there. It is not an easy task to change it and would require the appliance being removed from the wall on most hoods.
Kindly be patient whilst awaiting any responses from me as I'm not constantly available.

Model is ELIBLOC HT GR 80 hood.
I have removed filters and frame. The 'motor unit' is in centre. The switches for the lights and extractor are in the centre... Is transformer behind these? The instructions from Elica merely say to 'remove the 6 screws (size T10) from the cover hiding the transformer'.
I can count about 20 screws up there!!!
No obvious oblong metal box.
