New lights are making popping sounds
I have new construction in my kitchen with 5 pot lights in the ceiling. On several occasions after I have had them on and when i turn them off there is a pop type of sound coming from at least one of them if not another. What maybe causing this? It is unnerving! Thanks for any info given

Probably expansion and contraction of the metal parts and framework of the light fixtures as the light bulb heats up and cools down.

Try to record the sound and post the WAV here.:whistling2:

I would verify you have the correct type and wattage bulb listed for the fixture also.
