Range hood

cappo11January 31, 2013

I have a Broan Allure range hood over my stove. occasionally the bulbs burn out and have to be changed. However everytime I have to change one the bulb comes off it's base when I unscrew it. So I have to get in there and get that base out. Is there a grease I can use that is safe for light bulbs that would prevent them from sticking. The halogens don't do this but are expensive so I use regular 40w sylvanias

Pencil graphite is a good lubricant for light bulbs. Blacken the threads of bulb (or at least make them grey) before you install it.

Many of the bulbs are no longer even brass plated, let alone solid brass.
