Hi all,

I bought a Taylor Wimpey new build and had under cupboard lights put in the kitchen. 3 years on and the first one has gone out but when I unscrewed the casing to see how to change it, I am completely baffled!

Can anyone tell from the pic what I need to do/buy to change this, or do I need a electrician to look at this for me? If so, I’m in the right place :)

Any help greatly appreciated!

Thanks

a pic from the other side of the panel its sunk in to would be really useful, it might show the manufacturer and part number.

The "bulb" is not changeable, it needs a new fitting or driver (the box the cable from the light goes into)

Has the plug that connects to driver worked loose? It might need pushing in a little

There is no bulb to replace, its a new fitting im afraid.......yeah i know, stupid aint it!

Ok thank you, I’ll see if I can get the panel down and have a look. In my naive mind, I thought I could just change a bulb :(

I would expect that the unit should be removable by pulling it straight down out of the panel as it looks to be held by springs at the sides.
somewhat like this

The attached cable may take a circuitous route to the driver though and have a unique connection plug on the end.

Before going any further, it might be worth contacting the developer to see if there is an extended manufacturers warranty. Some if not most LED lamps/luminaires have such, between 5-10 years, if correctly registered.

If you narrow this down to the bulb not working then it looks as if you have just unscrewed the top casing, i'd assume if you can pull the fitting through or get behind the fitting there maybe a connector coming out the back of it which would then be a simple case of getting a new bulb and clicking into the connector.

If you would like to test whether it is the bulb or power supply you can do the following..

If there are multiple bulbs wired back to one power supply then this would indicate that the power supply isn't the issue (as the others are working fine on the same power supply).

If there is one power supply per fitting, then a test you can do is to try a known working power supply (one that is powering one of the others and working), and wire it to this bulb.
