Direct replacements are becoming more widely available and much less expensive. I have dealt with which has a wide variety of bulbs at reasonable prices.
Can you provide a specific bulb model number or replacement LED bulb link?

Thank you, Jim

LED bulb replacement for range hood.

I adapted two "Inreda" units from Ikea - they come in a four-pack - see photo.
Because these Ikea units are 12 volts DC they could be wired in as a direct replacement for the original units.
The varierty of LED bulbs available at the retail level has been increasing rapidly so a simpler solution would be to replace only the bulbs with 12 volt LEDs of the same format - check your range hood for the type of base required and the sizes that will fit. The more lumens the better.

I found the factory replacement fuse (3.15A 250V Delay) on amazon, link below. Would be great for people to share links of replacement products more often.
5 Qty. 5x20mm 3.15A Slow-Blow Ceramic Fuse T3.15a 250v

Side note, I am assuming the GMC-5 relates to the 5x20mm cartridge fuse.
