Hi,

I recently invested in a set of MR-16 LED bulbs that I picked up from Ryness. The power the old halogen bulbs was using was getting ridiculous, as I have a total of 10 throughout the house.

These bulbs fit conveniently to the existing connection and transformer on each light fitting. All work fine, with the exception of one, in the bathroom, which flickers like a strobe light. The only difference I can see with this particular light fitting is it is connected to the same power cabling as the extractor fan. The light is sometimes constant, however it can flicker when the fan is switched both on and off.

I have tried changing the transformer, the light bulb and tested both in other light fittings around the house. The bulb only flickers at this one location.

Does anyone have any idea how this can be fixed?

Thanks! :)

Are you using a LED driver or just the normal 12v transformers and as far as i know the MR16 LED bulbs have to have the correct polarity going to them could this be your problem:)
