Gene, I got the light socket yesterday (02-20-08). Problem solved. Thanks for the SOUND advice. The website said on Feb 01 that the part was " in stock" when it wasn't. That was my only beef. No problem though. Got the part! Fixed the Range Hood! Problem solved!
For what it's worth, the local appliance store here, called me the very day that I got the e-mail from this place telling me that the part had shipped,to tell me that the part had arrived that I had ordered from them way back before Christmas. They were nice and told that I didn't have to buy it but I bought it anyway.I am a man of my word,period. I now have a spare. Might need it one of these days. Who knows. Thanks for the help.God bless. John B
