Bathroom Fan Light/Fan combo, light not working

Installed a new light/fan combo about 8-9 months ago and few weeks ago the light part stopped working. I checked the bulbs(both went out same time) and they are good.

Any ideas why light would stop? But fan part keeps working fine?

For reference this is the light I used

Thanks!

Your profile only says Non-US, so we don't really know where you are from and what type electrical system you are working with. I would remove the fan/light and check the wiring under the wire nuts to make sure they are secure, first. If you have separate switching, make sure whoever installed it did not use any stab back connections on the switches. If so, remove them to the screw heads. While you have the fan down, check the voltage from the hot to ground to ensure you are getting power. Use an analog multimeter for this.

Are the fan and Light on two different switches?
Unplug the light from the white receptacle inside the fan and plug something in to test.
Another simple way to test is remove the light portion and plug it into a receptacle.
