Thread: 2 lights over the kitchen island

    Thumbs up 2 lights over the kitchen island

    Just wondering if anyone is having issues with the bulbs constantly blowing in the 2 light fixtures over the kitchen island? We have now replaced them each two times and I don't want to change them again. We replaced the first blown bulb on our very first trip out. Took us 2 days to find the correct bulbs. Once we replaced it, the other one went out 2 days later, then the other one 3 days later and then the other one 3days later....... Now they are both blown and I am not replacing them again.... I know something has to be wrong with the lights or the wiring. I love those lights but the bulbs should last longer than a few days. Now we just don't use them....both bulbs are black and will stay that way until I get it to the dealership.

    I replaced mine with LED bulbs and have not had a problem with them in 6 months. Just make sure you get the right bulb with the correct contacts and brightness you desire. The LED bulbs are a little more expensive but seem to be working great. Good luck!

    We bought the LED bulbs linked below. Perfect color match for the original incandescent bulbs.

    I have also had trouble with the lights over the kitchen sink. I put LED bulbs in there and one of them blew after about one month. I was really unahppy about that because they are expensive. May have just been a bad bulb the other one seems fine. Guess I will try one more and if I have a problem with that will have it checked.

    I put the same lights in mine. I goofed and got the cool white instead of warm white but we can live with it. It actually looks kinda neet. Been using them for over 6 months with no issues. Got some single post bulbs for the little lamp on the wall and the porch and flood lights as well. All working just fine and I don't hear the inverter fan kick in each time I turn them on.

    We haven't had trouble with the bulbs blowing--we have trouble with the fixture itself. It will stay on for a few minutes and then go completely off. Come back on-then go back off. I guess there may be a short in the fixture or it gets hot and turns off. Anyone else had that issue?

    I would suspect a loose connection. Ours started to come loose on our first trip. They are a little finicky. I took our apart and tightened everything up. No more wiggle, and rock solid in the fixture.

    We are on our third set of bulbs and another just blew! Hopefully this can be addressed at the Rally?!
