Mechanical things that are doomed to fail.

The puck light on the new stove hood vent just went out.

Considering it's only a month old, I'd have thought it would last just a liiiitle bit longer.

Alas it was not to be.

OK, those little halogen lightbulbs can be tricky and if they were installed with a bare hand (oils getting on the bulb GREATLY reduce the lifespan of a bulb) then, well... there you go.

Um... but what's this?

That doesn't look good. In fact, it looks like a short.

btw: if anyone knows where to get this replacement part (or what the heck it's even *called*, please let me know.)

After a little prodding and pulling, I was able to read the label on the "Quartz Lamp Holder". It says, and I quote.....

" * The lamps are couldn't straightly fixing on the surface of combustible material."

Um, yeah.
