LED mirror feels hot to the touch and bulb glows in dark

Postby JPCwirral » Sun Oct 25, 2015 10:41 am

Last April (2014) I employed a builder to turn my bathroom into a wet room. I have an led mirror with a built in shaver socket. There is a pull string to switch on or you can move your hand across a sensor to switch the light on/off. The last month or so I have noticed that the led lights 'glow' in the dark as if they are not fully off. Yesterday cleaning the mirror it felt hot to touch and I'm a little worried that this could be a fire hazard.
Would welcome your thoughts and advice.

Likely a heated mirror to stop it misting up and LED's use that little current it's common for them to glow. I would look up mirror type and see if it is heated.
