Is it normal to go through 8 bulbs in less than two years?
I have owned my hood for less than two years and my 8th bulb just blew. I don't think I use them excessively but it seems like a lot of bulbs. It also seems to be the front two more than the back two.
This is not normal. How close, in inches, is your stove top to the hood? There is a minimum distance it must be per install instructions. Are you using the recommended bulb for this hood? Alot of times bulbs will fail due to excessive heat if incorrect halogen bulbs are used. Knock wood, but we have not experienced this problem with ours and my wife and I cook and entertain a lot...never had a bulb failure. Our hood is 23 1/2" above our stove top. We use an induction stove. Hope this helps
