I recently purchased some ceiling light fixtures for my lounge and dining room from Next.
These fittings each needed 5 G4 bulbs and Next recommended that I purchase their halogen bulb 5 pack. Not knowing the problems I would face I purchased LED bulbs instead and fitted them in both fixtures as I’ve had numerous issues with halogen bulbs in the past and LED are more efficient.
I have now realised that because of the power issue, the bulbs will constantly flicker after being on for a few minutes and the fixture itself will make a buzzing noise.
After researching the cause I now realise that I need an LED driver for the fixtures to replace the transformer that came with the light (see attached image).
The problem I have is trying to purchase the correct driver and wire it up correctly. I know which wire is L and N for the PRI but the SEC is marked + and - on an LED driver which is different to the current halogen transformer so I am not sure which wire goes where.
If anyone can recommended the correct driver I would be most grateful, and also how to wire the + and - up correctly.
If it is of any help, The fitting recommended 20W halogen bulbs but I purchase 20w equivalent LED bulbs.
