My pool light is not working. I am not the original owner of the house and it wasn't working when i moved in. I am attempting to fix it. Here is what i have done:
1) checked the transformer voltage...good
2) verify 12V at the light socket...good
3) replace bulb with new.
Bulb will not light when turned on momentarily. Thought it might be a bad bulb so i connected it briefly to a 12V lantern battery. works great. plug it back into the socket...nothing...check voltage again with a meter...good 12 V. plug back in the light...nothing.
Sprayed a bit CRC dialectic into the socket and let dry...repeat...nothing.
I am at a loss. i even had the power on and moved the bulb around in the socket thinking that the socket prongs may be loose. nothing.
More info is that the bulb is a plug in style 12V 75W halogen. If i am leaving anything out, please let me know. and please help! i really don't want to replace the fixture cause they aren't cheap as everyone knows.
thanks in advance!
