10-16-2012 Question posted under T10004RT3 pool panel with transformer.
If the pool light inside the swimming pool is out, but bulbs are new, then those lights receive power from the transformer. Check if transformer is humming and putting out 12Volts ac. Check that bulbs are rated for transformer output voltage. Replace transformer with 119T340 or 119T267. http://waterheatertimer.org/Intermatic-trippers-and-parts.html#pool
If the 120Volt lights are not working, then these usually turn on-off with a switch. Check the switch
I have a Aqualink RS one touch control system, model 8157 RS6 Combo. The backlight in the control panal is out, the panal works fine, but does not light up, so it is hard to read. How can I replace the light? Do I have to replace the whole panal unit? Is there a bulb to replace? thanks, David
It sounds like your pool light has a faulty bulb. If you are sure that it is charged and there is no water in the housing unit, you will probably just need to get the bulb replaced. You will have to take it to the pool store that you got it from (or another pool store). You can't open the housing or you will void your warranty and risk shock.
Defective units, bad seal, or when soemone changes the bulbs, you must always replace the seal. It cannot be reused. Also possible the seal was not installed correctly. If these are new lights, they have a 1 year warranty. HTH
You cannot change the light yourself. These particular swimming pool lights are designed so that they are not able to be opened by the consumer. To have the bulb replace, you will have to take it to an pool store/repair place. They can only be opened by a professional. If you did open it, it would void your warranty. You will either have to take it in for servicing or buy a whole new light.
Odds are you have an "Aqua Luminator" or "Johnny Light" style light that has replaced your factory style return or discharge on above ground pool. It usually contains two lens, bulb with fixture and step down transformer/switch. These lights usually contain a fountain attachment that makes circulation even worse. If it is this style of light you have a couple of options.
1. Rotate the housing 90deg (from top to side) so that the slotted discharge is pushing the water into the pool in a direction that helps circulation. Be careful to rotate only the outside housing. You do not want to twist the liner into the return/light fixture. Usually you will have to loosen or remove the light bulb prior to doing so.
2. If you want to remove the light and discharge, unplug the transformer/power. Unscrew and remove the lock nut on the outside of the pool that holds the bulb in. Once removed the bulb is connected with two terminals these simply pull apart. Once removed the discharge will push water into the pool without direction. This will help prevent algae build up from poor circulation.
If you want to remove the light fixture once and for all, drain the water level below the discharge port. Once the bulb and slotted cover is removed you will see a flange inside the pool. The flange inside the pool will have 4 tabs, simply grasp and turn counter clockwise. This will remove it from the casing and you will be able to replace it with a standard directional return or discharge. Bear in mind certain pools have different size gaskets and parts, so it is best to know this information prior.
The users manual strictly forbids users of these swimming pool lights from changing any bulbs/batteries/etc. This light is specifically designed so that it cannot be opened by anyone other than an autorized repair person. If you were to open it yourself you would not only risk electrocuting yourself, but also void your warranty. You will have to have it serviced or replace the whole light. Sorry! Hope this helps you though.
The Glow Buoy swimming pool lights were designed so that the bulbs can only be replaced by a licensed pool supply store. If you open the light yourself, you will void any warrantly and risk breaking the unit. Becuase of this, they don't sell the exact bulbs that you need unless a pro is installing them.
