My 2009 vents outside. I find it difficult to grasp the concept of not venting out, as it is meant primarily to remove moisture from cooking, or if you should burn your toast.

I too converted my hood to LED.

For a very short time, I believe in 2010 or 2011, Reace started using a hood that didn't vent to the outside. There was some complaining so he quickly changed back to the vented hood and at the time offered anyone who had the non vented hood the option to change to a vented one at no charge. I had a 2005 17B and it's hood was vented to the outside.

This will work even in the rain since the vent has a cover. Thus those without an awning window can still have fresh air in the rain.
In addition consider switching the light to a small led bulb, it becomes a perfect night light that can be left on with minimum battery use. Just my .02 worth.
Thanks for the ideas. Mine also vents to the outside. However, one has to remember to unlock it prior to use lock it before leaving, and the little plastic catch doodads are a bit on the fragile side.

One of our little clips did come off when opening one day but it seemed to clip in place again--and it is still in place!
Think I'll try an LED light there too. Thanks for the idea..all our other lights are LED

Hi: Sandra L... I made new doodads from screen clips and mounted them on a new vent hood and then had it replaced while getting the bearings packed. There is a remote option avail. with a pull open lever on the inside.
The vent hood is also a great place for your fridge magnet collection... if it's not stainless!!! Alf

Hi Alf,
Can you post pictures? I have all kinds of magnetic items on my vent hood! I even got a magnetic utensil holder from Amazon: Amazon.com: Better Houseware 2406 Magnetic Paper Towel Holder, Stainless: Home & Kitchen. I also got the paper towel holder, but since the towels block the window, it is now attached to the stove cover, for the time being: Amazon.com: Better Houseware 2406 Magnetic Paper Towel Holder, Stainless: Home & Kitchen)
The magnets are strong, but I had the towel one fall off when travelling. (Which is why it is now on the back of the stove top.)

Can anyone provide the source and part # for the LED bulb that replaces the OE 12V 10W wedge bulb in the stove venting hood ?
