I have six pot lights in my living room in a home which I just purchased. After a few minutes of leaving the pot lights on a couple of them start to turn off for a few minutes and then back on again. Any ideas?
1) There is a thermal sensor inside the pot light that turns the light off should it get too hot. Check to ensure you have the proper rated lamps installed and are not exceeding the power rating of the pot light.
2) It’s possible you have the wrong type of pot light installed. IC pot lights should be installed where ever insulation is used. It may be that you have non-IC pot lights installed blanketed by insulation and the sensor is doing its job and preventing a possible fire by turning the light off, letting the light cool down, and then turning back on.
