I have been having a problem with a spotlight (screw thread 40W) switching itself off afte a few minutes. At first I thought there was some kind of timer in the light (I'm no DIY'er so I felt it was possible) but recently the light has been going out after only 2 or 3 minutes.
I opened it up and took a picture of the wiring I found. I tightened everything up then pu Censored back together.
On switching the light back on, it just BLEW straight away. What can I do please ?
Hi CP, take another look @ that picky! i'm sure you have got a blk wire in the wrong place!, if u have all reds together & all blk together then it's wrong, see 'projects' wiring/replacing a light, your reds should not go to the light, one blk[shd be marked red] goes to centre contact of ES lampholder other blks [Neutrals] go to outer contact, regards SPARX
