    I have to look at a relations downspots today, he is saying that out of 6 spots 4 have failed in the last week, they apparently have a 10 year guarantee but only been in approx 5 years, no receipts, any help?

    Are they 240v or do they have transformers?

    I'm going to guess the latter in which case you have 2 options
    A) replace the transformers like for like
    B) remove the transformers and replace the bulbs and holders with 240v versions.

    If they don't have a receipt then forget the guarantee.

    If they are mains powered then it could just be bad luck that they've failed at the same time. Try swapping known working bulbs for the faulty ones to test holders.

    Pics may help us of fitting type.

    @ktuludays with respect. You obviously do not know anything about this product. Everything you have posted is guesswork and of no help.
    Let me educate you.
    The FGLED6 is an integrated 230volts downlight. The LEDs and the driver are all one unit. No replaceable parts. If it dies you replace the whole thing.

    The “10 year warranty” requires that the
    QUALIFIED INSTALLER registers the installation at the time they were fitted with JCC. You gave to be a member of a CPS to get your 10 year warranty.

    I’ve fitted a lot of these, and they die young.
    Solution: buy new replacements.

    Thanks for your condescending post, it was greatly received.
