hard to handle cans

I've got to repair/replace 2 cans in a kithcen ceiling. they are hard to reach thru the small cutout hole. One or 4 lights won't stay lit, I believe a heat sensor is cutting the power off and then another in the branch goes out. Two stay lit? Remodel Cans? The box is elbow deep in the hole with no extra nomex. Help

Maybe you can explain a bit clearer. I have no idea what you are saying.
Are you asking us if two stay lit?
One can has nothing to do with the others staying lit.


Sometimes I feel like if I answer any more questions it is like someone trying to climb over a fence to jump off a bridge and me giving them a boost.

move all the insulation away from the cans, and then see what happens.

I'm confused also. The heat sensor will only shut down the individial can it is installed in, it had nothing to do with other can going out as a direct consequence.
