    Can i replace a Downlight with one different to the rest?

    Hi, I've got 6 Luceco downlights in my cellar. One is now flashing on & off. I've taken it out & can see that it's a contained unit, I can't replace the bulb. Is it possible to buy a different Downlight to replace or do I have to buy the same model? Thank you.
