Who manufactures Utilitech Recessed Lights?
 
I recently had a contractor remodel my basement and he used Utilitech 6" Recessed Lights that he purchased from Lowes. I am not happy with the trim kits and want to replace them, but not sure what other brand trim styles I can use like Halo, Juno, All-Pro by Cooper Lighting, etc.

The model number of the can is #Y301ICWW.

Does anyone know who makes this recessed light for Lowes? I have heard that it is Halo and I have heard that it is Juno. If it is one of these manufacturers can you also advise which model number it is equivalent too.

Thanks

Pull the trim from one of the cans and shine a light up into it. There should be a tag in the can listing the trim numbers that are to be used with it.

The tag should also list the model number of the can, which I believe is Y7ICAT. The number you listed is for a 6 pack containing both cans and trims.

Thanks OSO954.

If that truly is the number in the can, which I will check tonight, it tells me it is a Halo or Cooper Industries produced product as that would be their series number.

Halo sells it as H7ICT and H71CAT (for air tite). That would help a lot as then I could probably use Halo or All-Pro trims without any issues.

The issue would be no UL listing for the Halo trims used with the Utilitech cans. No UL listing would be an NEC violation.

Why no UL listing when all we are talking about is a metal baffle which would be mated with a housing made by that manufacturer regardless of how they are selling it. So my concern would be fire?

You are assuming they are made by Halo. They could be a knockoff made in China.

Halo does not certify/list all of their 6 inch trims to work on all of their 6 inch cans. You can have overheating problems because you used a trim and bulb recommended for a non-IC can with an ICAT.

You can always call Cooper/Halo to get their opinion.

1) Call Lowes
2) Never call that contractor again.

I'm using the Utilitech IC housings (UL listed) with Halo trims (also UL listed) and have no problems with them...
