I have two hanging pendants over my kitchen island in my new home (50W
halogen bulbs). One went out a week or so ago...thought it burned out
so I got a new bulb. New bulb didn't work....so I thought it must be
the lighting fixture. Tried the bulb in the other light to make sure it
worked and did (so did the old bulb, not burned out...). But - when I
put a bulb in the not-working fixture when they power is on (I was
experimenting) the light works fine - both are on. I leave them on,
they are fine. If I turn them off and turn them back on, they both come
back on. BUT...when I turn them off and leave them for awhile (20mins+)
then the one doesn't come back on again!?! Do you think it is a bad
light fixture or something else electrical? Terribly confused....
This is what the fixture looks like (not exact model) just in case:
And, TURN THE POWER OFF before you stick that screwdriver in.
Also, if they are screw base bulbs look at the contact at the bottom
center of the socket. If it's flattened down, try pulling it up a bit
with a piece of stiff wire with a small "L" bent at its end.
