Has anyone had any problems specifically with TC-301H halogen MR16
lamp-holders? The part number may be E127321. Please reply here or to
email@example.com at any time. I will continue to check for
replies for many years in the future from the date of this post.
I don't know who's part number you're referring to, but I've had numerous
burnouts of MR-16 sockets from a variety of manufacturers. The lamps get
really hot, the heat is transferred to the pins, which in turn anneal the
socket contacts and destroy the connection
*Same here. If the socket to pin connection is not extremely tight they
eventually overheat. I like the look of the MR-16 light, but I always
advise against using those types of fixtures. I had one customer who
bought over 50 low voltage track lights with MR-16 bulbs. Over a two year
period most of them burned out due to poor socket to bulb connections.
Fortunately she bought a name brand from a reputable lighting store and the
factory replaced every one even though the warranty had expired. The
replacements have a much tighter socket and it is difficult to get the bulbs
in, but that is how they need to be.
