    Best option for swapping halogen spotlights for LED

    Evening all, I'm a bit behind in the world of LED lighting as before having a baby earlier this year, we didn't really use the main lights very often. However, the existing halogen spotlights are now getting a lot more use (and some of the transformers have died) so I think it's time to look...

    Seized bathroom spotlight

    Hi all We have a couple of spot lights in our bathroom that are either on but very dim or go on for a second or two, before going out. Bulbs are clearly working, but I think there must be some loose wires or something which is causing them to go. Not on a dimmer switch. Have tried to unscrew...

    LED replacement bulbs too dim

    In our kitchen we have 8 concealed down-lighters in the ceiling – each with a Reflekto 185051 clear 36degree 2700K 12v 50watt halogen bulb (which are 45mm long). I am keen to replace these with an LED equivalent – but one which hopefully gives a light which is as similar to what exists as...

    Installing an LED transformer

    I had a couple of transformers go on halogen spotlights. I'm the in the process of switching to LEDs so I bought LED transformers instead. The old transformers had a blue and brown wire on the input AC side which were connected directly to the same colour mains wires in the connection box...
