Random number of bulbs working in light fitting

Postby lmanning » Thu Feb 19, 2009 9:09 am

I had a light fitting installed, by an electrician about 2 years ago, which takes 10 G4 10W bulbs and it worked fine at first but now each time I switch the light on, there are a different number of bulbs lit and it generally seems to be only 2 or 3 lit nowadays. I bought 10 new better quality bulbs and still have the same problem. Can anyone help or advise? Thanks

Could be loose connections within light fitting or bad connection with lamps within lampholders.

I'd advise you get it checked out by competent person.
