Dusk to Dawn with motion sensor will not shut off
I have a Dusk to Dawn Motion light that will not shut off even if reset it. I'm at a loss please help.

Is there a switch on the fixture that has a 'test' setting on it?

Glennw1124 01-17-2011 06:37 PM

Yes It it looks like this

Dusk 6 2 Test
to ( - ) The dash is a switch
Dawn Timer

Also i don't know if this matters but the problem started after i had to replace the bulb it was a clear bulb and i didn't have another like that so i have a regular white bulb in it now.

Some fixtures are intelligent.

If you turn the power on to the light, then turn it off for 3-10 seconds and power it back on, the light will stay on regardless of motion or photo cell.

The solution is to power the light off for about 60 seconds, then power on and it should resume normal operation.

I have several of these and use the "Stay on" feature when we have guests coming over.

Ya that's what i thought it was. I do the same thing when guest come over
I'm stumped.

motion light
I have the same light with the same problem. We to, switched out the bulb and now it comes on even during the day. I have it on the 2 right now in hopes that means it will only stay on for 2 mins. Even during the day. Did you figure yours out?

This problem was over a year ago. I doubt anyone is still following this thread.

I figured if anyone has updates via email, they may see the post. Since you are an electrician, can you help?
