The unit is approx 6 years old. The red light is a continuously blinking light with no pauses. Sorry for my delay, been away from home.

Getting anxious, any thoughts?

Have you pulled the lamp to check it?

No I havn't. I will do that tonight. This email went to my spam box and i almost missed it. Am I just looking for a blown bulb, like my last one 3 months ago or is there something else to be on the lookout for? Thanks.

Expert:  Tim Nolan replied 6 years ago.

Well if it is blown that will answer our questions quickly, but it may just be deformed or might have some white spots at the base...let me know what you see.

Bulb is perfect. Filament intact. Glass reflector free of defects.
Expert:  Tim Nolan replied 6 years ago.

Ok put it in and listen/look through the vents in the back while you turn it on, what do you see/hear?

nothing. not a sound, no fan, no light. heard just a slight tick when power is plugged in, red light flashes, constant green light. Again sorry for delay reply. I am a RN who works alot of hours. In and back out of house. On way out again, but thank you thus far for helping me trouble shoot. I am trying to save money by not just replacing this or that if not needed.

Is there anything else we should be doing?
Expert:  Tim Nolan replied 6 years ago.

The red light blinking, that is the lamp light?

Customer: replied 6 years ago.
no that blinking red light is the one on the front of the unit next to the tiny solid green light, nothing new.
Customer: replied 6 years ago.
I'm sorry but it's been almost 3 weeks now and the only advise i've gotten is check the bulb. If there are no other suggestions at this point please let me know.
