Outdoor sensor light

Postby Dahmer » Mon Feb 25, 2008 10:12 am

My outside light has stopped working. I have changed the fuse as the bulb does appear to have blown. I have now changed the bulb and the light still isn't working. The sensor clicks when I cover it, but nothing else happens. Any advice would be appreciated................

My guess would be the old bulb has gone, often you can't tell by just looking. & the new bulb isn't in properly. They can be a bit tricky! Turn the power and give the bulb a wiggle & make sure it's sitting on the two pins properly. Don't touch the bulb with your skin either. Other than that probably the sensor.
