The electricity that is used for the flood light is shared with 6 other inside lights all using 60watt bulbs.
So following the instructions, I fixed the bracket on the wall, wired it up, stuck the bulb in and turned on the electricity. The new light would not turn on. so I checked all the wiring, even purchased a new 500watt bulb and still nothing.
I then purchased one of those neon screw drivers used to test weather there is electricity going through, and used it to touch each end, where the halogen bulb sits and it lit up meaning that there was electricity going through.
Why wont the light come on? The previous light that the kids damaged had a 150watt Halogen bulb. Could it be that there is not enough electricity going in to light up the 500watt bulb? If this was that case, wouldn't the main fuse for the flood light automatically shut off?
When using the neon screwdriver should it light up when I touch both ends of where the halogen bulb sits?
If I purchased 150watt Halogen bulb, would this remedy the problem (500watts is overkill really)..
Please help, I don't know what to do.. Any help would be most appreciated... Mal
