Puck Light Bulb Replace


Looking to replace the halogen bulb with an LED. Can't figure out how to get at the bulb. I have searched, and everything I found says that I just remove the lens. But, I can't seem to find a way to get at it. Anyone have these puck lights?

Do you have one of those 6" round rubber grips for removing bottle caps in your kitchen? They help a lot. Ours aren't like yours, but I am expecting you may need to turn the lens to remove it. I may be way off base, but its worth a try. My fingers don't work anything like they used to.

Take a sharp edge, like a knife and pry at the little rib in the middle. It is very hard to see, but that is the seam between the outer trim rind and the insert

The entire light can be pulled out. I have done it several times. They are very tightly fitted into the ceiling. So it takes some effort. You can remove the glass by twisting it counter clockwise, thus leaving the light fixture in place. Then merely pull the halogen bulb out.

Please let us know what type of light you replace them with. Keep in mind, you need dimable LEDs.

On our puck lights you just twist the cover that houses the lens about a 1/4 turn and it comes off.

Puck Light Bulb Replace

We originally replaced the halogen bulbs with LED bulbs, but recently discovered that the hole for the original fixture exactly matches the new 3” LED lights on many 2019’s. Paid about $12 each from the manufacturer and also from Amazon.

X3 and yes the entire assembly will pull down but that does not get you to the bulb.

Thanks

This is from the AC store in Decatur. The only issue was that the plug is identical to the original, except the genders are switched. I had to cut the connectors off the old fixtures and crimp them to the house-side wires.

Pick lights

Rubber gloves and about a quarter turn gets mine off. I too was going to change to LED, but being on a dimmer, they all flicker. Even the ones that say they won’t flicker still do. If anyone has found any that don’t flicker, l would love to find them.

If you are using a non-LED dimmer with LEDs, that could be the problem. An incandescent dimmer simply lowers voltage. LEDs do not do well with low voltage. An LED dimmer uses Pulse Wave Modulation (PWM). It puts out a relatively high frequency (too fast to see) square wave that always has the same voltage (amplitude) and frequency. What varies is the duty cycle, or the % of each cycle that is ON versus OFF.

Some LED fixtures have a conversion circuit built in, but most do not and require updating the dimmer. For example, I replaced my dash lights with LEDs and now they are either on or off. The dimmer does not work with LEDs and will have to be replaced.
