The light worked when we moved in last year. I tried it recently and it wont come on now so i think bulb is out now. We just haven't used it in awhile because its too bright.The switch to turn it on is a Intermatic remote (RC613) with a (RC939) transmitter that works it from the lanai/house and yes I did put in a new battery just to be sure.
So I decided to get a LED color light and change it out.I tested it inside the house before i tried it in the pool light so I knew it worked. Now when I took the old bulb out that was in the pool to see if it was bad it still looked OK until I took it in the house and put it in a lamp to test it and as soon as I turned it on and POW a big flash and popped the main breaker on the panel box.OK so now I know the bulb is toast.So I put in the new bulb and tried it and nothing seems to be no power to the light niche.
The only thing I can think that could be bad in between the main breaker panel and the light niche is the remote switch (RC613) to the junction box.
I guess my question is do these remotes just go bad very often and is there any way to test it before I buy a new one? I read they are throw away and not fixable.
