the florescent light in my stove hood range stopped working. After replacing the bulb & starter I hired a technician to diagnose the problem. Apparently the control board is not functioning correctly. The fan works, but no power gets to the light. The control board is no longer available.
The technician suggested I install light strip instead of spending over 1K replacing the hood with something similar.
The LED seem easy to install but I have no experience with them and I cannot find answers to several of my questions:
- Is it safe or will it cause fire hazard?
- If I install LED strip above the stove will the moisture or heat from cooking cause issues?
- Can I put a clear packing tape on top of the strip to protect it from moisture and also help it to stick to range?
If you can see another issues with this approach please let me know.
