Are they seated properly in their sockets?

They are strip lights. I have dissembled the lights, deleted the pull switch just to make sure that is not the problem. There are no visible signs of power surge but there is a slight burnt electronics smell. The circuit board looks good.

Just a follow up to my led shop lights. I spoke with lights of america this morning, i was told any power surge could fry the ballast on the circuit board. I was told to exchange them where i purchased them (sams club). These lights have a 3 year warranty which is pretty awesome. hopefully my experience will help someone.

I wonder if putting them on a surge protector would help or prevent problems. It is great that you can replace them but still a pain to do.

Sorry for your troubles but glad you can replace them. Also, happy you posted. I’ll put mine on a surge protector, now.

That was a good read, looks like a company that might not be around before the warranty expires.

Have your say...
