Light goes dim and re-lights


A client of mine has an LED light that, when turned on, starts to brighten but when it is full strength, it goes dim and begins to brighten again. This action repeats over and over. What is the cause and how to correct?

Is it getting constant voltage? Put a meter on it. Is there a dimmer or remote control or anything weird in the circuit? Can you remove the bulb and try it in a different location? Just replace the whole thing?

Re: Light goes dim and re-lights


Definitely try a different fixture first, that will narrow down whether the problem is with the fixture or the bulb. If its a bulbs a solution is simple, just buy another one. If it see circuit it will take some more investigation to narrow down the problem. I'm guessing you are going to find that the problem is the bulb.
