Question about Garden

1 Answer

Purchased the 70 watt fixture and supplier said I could put in a 35 watt bulb because I didn't want it so bright. The light goes on but exceeds 35 watts and then shuts off after 5 min. Is it possible to install 35 watt bulb into 70 watt fixture. The supplier only had one 35 watt fixture and a number of 70 watt fixtures. Is there an adjustment I can make to the 70 watt fixture to make it copatible with a 35watt bulb? sincerely Dave.

Hi,
The simplest thing to do would be to use the 70 watt bulb and then install a dimmer switch...that way you can dimm to what ever level you want and still have the full brightness if you want....
dimmer switches are not that exspensive and are easy to install...

Can I replace the 13 watt CFL bulbs in my fan light fixture with a higher watt bulb


The bulb fixture itself should tell you what the max wattage is that you can put in there but they are normally at a 60watt limit.

We have Lithonia 2 bulb fixtures in a recessed ceiling. We currently have 2 (25) watt bulbs in them. What wattage can I upgrade to ??


The ballast inside the fixture is rated to operate 2 25w bulbs. You can't put higher wattage bulbs in this fixture, unless you change the ballast. Sorry.

Fixture not working after bulb change


"CFLs" Compact Fluorescent Bulbs (with built in ballast) must be labeled as dimmable to be used on a dimmer circuit.

Traditional fluorescent fixtures must have a dimmable ballast installed inside and can be used with standard fluorescent lamps.

Fluorescent lamps must be sized to match the ballast. CFL's are matched at the factory, but others are not. Older fluorescent lamp fixtures have a ballast inside. A type rating is to operate (2) 48 inch / 40 watt lamps. Newer fluorescent lamps are rated for 32 watts, and these will not work - or will have a greatly reduced life.

If you installed CFL's, the first thing I would do is install regular incandescent lamps and see if it works as expected. If not, something else is wrong - otherwise - make sure you've got the right lamps in the fixture.

Newly installed Hunter remote will work light and fan if only 2 of the 3 bulbs are installed.


Did you install the correct wattage? If you put in 2-60 watt try 3-40 watt instead .

I turned the lights on the high setting for a couple of hours, and the bulb just blew out. I then touched the top of the hood and it was very hot. Should a bulb blow out for no reason? I am worried that...


Check the documentation and make sure the wattage on the light bulb does not exceed what is recommended. For instance: Mine says no more than 75 watts incandescent light bulb.

Can I connect more than 6 lights to one garden light fixture package and if so how do I do it?


If you are referring to a wired low voltage light set (you listed under a ceiling fan, so I'm not positive what we're working on) Yes, you can, providing the total wattage of the bulbs is less than the wattage output of the transformer. (i.e. If you have a 50 watt transformer and 6 watt bulbs 6X6=36 you could add 2 more lights, which would be 48 watts) Do not exceed the rated output of the transformer. As to how, they usually use some form of wire piercing connection and usually come with instructions for how to use their connector. Good luck

Can you hook up two 12 gauge cables to the power pack of the ML 300 RTW transformer. Power cable would run in different directions. Thank you Joe


Hello yes you can the Important thing to remember here is not to exceed the wattage that the transformer puts out.

Add up the wattage of each bulb that you are running and ensure that you do not exceed 300 watts.

for example a 300 watt transformer could drive
a. 10 - 30 watt bulbs
b. 20 - 15 watt bulbs
c 75 - 4 watt bulbs

Its also ok to mix bulb wattage for example I use 10 watt bulbs in the fixtures in the front of the house but also power 4 20watt spotlights from the same transformer.

Hope that helps

Hampton Bay Ceiling Fan Plastic Burning Smell


I think you have already figured out what the problem most likely is; 60 watt bulbs. Down-size the wattage or install 'energy saver' bulbs if they will fit the application. Instead of counting on these units for extra lighting, perhaps think about Track lighting to fill in those ares that need more but subtle light.
Good luck. :)
