Default Bathroom Light malfunction

Hi,

I have a 2019 Pleasure Way Lexor FL.
In the bathroom there are two oval shaped lights. They are activated by a single press. One of them does not fully turn on.

Can these be disassembled, or would I be better off just replacing the unit?

Any thoughts?

Thanks,
Gerry

"fully turn on"


only comes on dim ? or only comes on once in a while ?


if dim, you may have a 2 stage light
I have deliberately made my bathroom light 2 stage with a dim setting on one side with a low lumen LED and a higher lumen LED on the other.
The dim acts as a nightlight


It you have intermittent operation the switch may be dirty/corroded or the lamp or led loose or in a corroded socket.
If most cases "exercising" a dirty switch will solve that, or unplugging and reinserting the lamp/led

Thanks Mike,

Yeah only comes on dim, unlike the other one. Was fine before. I took it out, looks melted. Sealed unit. Probable best to just try for a replacement.

if it's melted I would assume an incandescent lamp?

switch to an LED, choose a color temperature near 3000K or lower ( a higher number indicates a harsher light)

an incandescent uses 10x the power for the same amount of light ( lumens )

and makes much more heat


all of my leds are made by phillips which makes a high quality no flicker led. about $10 each



I first tried something at walmart and it soon flickered, then failed

Thanks,

I ordered an OCL-2K-DP Thma Oval Courtesy Light White. Looks like a direct replacement. If I get another failure, I'll get more creative.

Thanks for you time.

It is better to replace the whole unit and not waste time with it. It will take too long to find the reason or have the producer replace it.

It always takes time, and my advice is that if you have money for that, then you better just buy a new one, and thatís it. You may think about getting something better like a color-changing LED light bulb that can be controlled from your phone. You can also synchronize it with your music or make it react to your voice commands. This is much better than regular light because it can be both regular light and something special you can surprise your friends with.

Switch to the LED; these are brighter and consume less energy. I bought some from Amazon, and they last for a long time.

So, I prefer to choose LED for my house and my car too. I recently replaced the halogen highlights with LED highlights because they consume less, and all my friends did these. I bought a pair from Amazon, and also these car lights are also LED https://www.amazon.com/car-lights-ca...dp/B09L86JRRM; these ones create a nice party atmosphere in the car. Most of the time, my kids enjoy them.
