Question about Heath Zenith SL-6136-WH Basic Solutions Wireless Switch and Plug-in
My light fixture stopped working The red light on the motion detector is blinking but the lights do not go on, even using the manual over ride.
I have this problem every now and then. I just fixed mine - knock on wood. I smacked it lightly, cleaned the lens and the eye. Then I turned on the switch for a minute, switched to TEST, waited for a minute, then I switched to 1 min. (you should hear an internal "click") and switched the light switch off and on again. Waited for 1 minute and it shut off.
Hope this helps. Buy "Made in USA" whenever possible to prevent problems like this.

I am in the middle of a discussion with Heath/Zenith over a closely related and perhaps identical issue. I purchased their 5718 model from Home Depot and based on the fact that their brochure stated that "CFL bulbs are only usable on 270 degree units." I purchased the model 5718 unit (270 degree) and used CFL bulbs. It experienced the same problem others noted.
The technician at Heath/Zenith told me that only DIMMABLE CFL bulbs would work with this unit (even if the DualBrite feature is turned off). Standard CFL bulbs will not work.
Their brochure does not make that clear. Perhaps that is the answer to others' problems.
