Re: 3-light LED spotlight kit with remote solar panel...
The Spotlight kit should still be under warranty for at least a year through the manufacturer. Check your manual and contact the manufacturer. The problem might be the seal which is allowing water in and therefore it needs to be replaced

sludge, debris or algae build up inside the motor, or aging extension cord.
outdoor extension cables are not meant to remain outdoors for more than 3 or so years, especially if exposed to light or heat, and/or extreme temps, and, when the insulation starts to crack, it can short, especially when exposed to moisture/rain.
You are correct they do lose the output over time. .Not knowing the specific type or brand of the panels the following is a general over all reply.
The manufacturer will give the specific amounts the panels will lose their efficiency. Newer panels I believe will 2-4% the first year then something like 1% per year. Newer panels usually have a life of 20 years. I am not sure about the smaller panels you have but I would guess they may be a little faster especially if your putting them up and down constaly.
Also make sure you clean them, that will make a very substantial difference especially since they are smaller in size and I am sure you know that shade on ANY PART of the panel may eliminate total sections of the panel producing power, depending on the type of [panels you have. Also check for scratches where you might be able to light through the panels as that may affect the output.
I would suggest a google search for manufacturer and model # and then review the spec sheets for the item. That is were you would find the information.If you don't and the company is still in business send them an email and they will let you know.
Using a battery/volt meter, check if the battery has a full charge. Also check if there is an on/off switch on the back of the solar panel. If the batteries are removable and are standard batteries, charge them using an AC battery charger the first time. If not, you may have a defective solar panel and should return it to the store/manufacturer.
Check the rechargable batteries insode of the decoy. The solar panels recharge the batteries so that they can supply energy to the lights at night. The batteries have a limited lifespan and need to be replaced every couple of years. Replacing the batteries ought to bring your decoy back to life. Enjoy!
I have a 2901cs01that I use to pump water into a statue in the middle of my pond but it has stopped working. I have put a hose ontp the pipe which is usually attached to the pump and water is getting through. I have checked the pump and cleaned it with the hose and the little impeller goes round well. I have cleaned the solar panel very well and still there is no joy. Please can you help me?
you can use Solar Pumps: Solar-powered pumps perform well in climates with a great deal of sunshine and save money by not requiring an outdoor electrical outlet. Solar pumps also work well if your fountain is located a distance from the power supply. However, flow rate is minimal compared to typical voltage
