Can you all help me figure this out? Recently I installed a Hayward fixture into the niche in the wall of my pool. In reality this fixture has sat in my garage for several years but was uninstalled. I turned it on the first time and it works. Then after several day it stops working. I get my multimeter out and see that I have power on the hot to ground but none on the neutral to ground. I figure the bulb has burned out, a standard household 300 watt flood. I pull the fixture, remove the bulb and try it in a lamp in the house. The bulb works. I reinstall the bulb and then the fixture. It works and does so for a day or so when it stops. I repeat the cycle of test with multimeter, uninstall, test, reinstall. It works. Last night it stops working again. I have not yet uninstalled but I checked with the multimeter. Same results.
I am presuming that my fixture is bad. However, before I buy a new one I thought I would check and see if I am missing something.
