    Hi, Replaced traditional lights in bathroom over sink with allen + roth LED style from Lowes. Problem is that it sometimes trips the GFCI when turning the lights on OR off. I don't think the GFCI in that bathroom is too old, maybe a couple years. So I took it off again, got some steel...

    I'm wanting to find an low-voltage LED post lamp for the entrance to my driveway, that's fed by 12v landscape wiring. For the life of me I cannot find one anywhere. Does anyone know if such a thing exists? If not - why not? It almost seems as if they are illegal or something. If so - why...

    Hi - I have several MR16 halogen recessed lights in my basement. Every one is broken by now. I have purchase new bulbs, tried LED bulbs, but no luck. One will turn on for a couple seconds, then turn off, but most don't do anything (i just hear a low hum from the transformer). They are 4 inch...

    Hey everyone, I'm hoping one of you can fill me in with some experience you might have had with this scenario. This is the first plug-in light I've ever attempted to hardwire, and I was sure it'd only be a quick cut and stripping/connecting of the wires but the LED comes with an LED driver and...

    Hi there, I recently built an aquarium LED light which went pretty well, however i read that I need to include a current limiting resistor into to the circuits. I basically have used a constant voltage supply outputting at 12 volts and then ran 4 sets of series strings running in parallel...

    I was wondering if anyone here knows anything about LED lights. Specifically, I'm curious if anyone uses 3000K T8 bulbs, or 3000K T4 bulbs at home. Do you like how the natural light looks, as opposed to the white light of other bulbs? I'd like to hear others' opinions before making a purchase...

    I recently replaced all the halogen undercabinet lights in my kitchen with LED pucks. In my old setup, the switch for these was located in a random spot (thank you some electrician from 1953) and I installed a Heath-Zenith remote receiver switch in place of the regular one and put the remote...

I am quite new to DIY, but I've got great imagination and look thru beautiful pictures online, so, I'm trying to implement some of my ideas. I've got a condo on the last (4th floor) in Los Angeles, California with...
