Replacement lighting - MR-16 halogen for incandescent
Can I take an MR-16 halogen fixture and just wire it in where there was a regular incandescent light fixture, circa 1979? That's what I did and now (after roughly a year) the MR-16 won't turn on. First thing, of course was to try a new bulb.....no dice. My little cheapo outlet tester says that there is juice to the fixture and it responds appropriately with the flipping of the switch. I got a new wired socket thinking it might have been an oxidation issue, but the new one gives the same indications. Ideas?
