This video had to be made. If you bought a range hood recently, you may have noticed this particular bulb. This is a low voltage GU10 bulb.

It is flush to the hood, so it doesn't turn like a regular bulb or even wrap your fingers around it bulb to manipulate it out of the hood.

So, there are two solutions for this.

Buy an LED light bulb and never worry about the problem. LED lasts 50,000 hours versus 800 for the low voltage bulbs. At 4 hours a day, you will have a 34-year lifespan.

Try this ingenious tool as described in the video below.

WHY SHOULD YOU TRUST US?

A few review sites have placed this at the bottom of their articles. So here is our take: Our mission is to find reliable products for you to buy. Other review sites may say this as well.

However, we don’t love every product. Quite frankly, it costs us way too much money in repair costs to support less reliable brands.

In fact, we sell fewer brands than most appliance stores. Here is why:

We feel it is our responsibility to repair your appliances after you buy them.

We now have 30 service technicians, each averaging 8-10 calls a day Monday through Friday, plus another 110 on Saturday. That's over 30,000 service calls logged in one year.

The labor rates of fixing an appliance do not come close to the true cost in any product’s warranty period.

That is why no major retailer has a service department. It costs too much labor, money and time.

Our Blog is a bit different than most others you will read. We cannot write glowing reviews of unreliable products.

Hopefully, the bloggers and organizations who write such glowing product reviews for every brand consider servicing these products first. Only then they will understand the consequences of their marketing.

My goal has always been simple: I want Yale to be the best retail experience anywhere. I have tried to create a compelling environment for customers and employees alike.
