Have a George Kovacs Chrome 39 1/2" wide LED Bathroom Light…

Customer Question
Have a George Kovacs Chrome...
Have a George Kovacs Chrome 39 1/2" wide LED Bathroom Light, Style #2F351 from Lamps Plus purchased in 2014. Your I.D.: Brand = Leviton / Model: Sureslide 6615.
My situation is: Working fine until three days ago, when light would go out. Would not turn on by the switch until a wait of 10 to 15 minutes, then on for 15 to 20 minutes and then go out again. Put in a new wall switch to no avail. What is the problem? Is there a thermal internal overload switch? If so, how do we get it corrected?
Thanks,
Vic XXXX

This sounds like a potential loose connection. Since you've already replaced the switch, I think we can rule that out.

However, if the neutral (white) wire is spliced in the switch box, please check that splice to make sure it's good and tight.

Then, check the connections at the fixture, to make sure they are tight as well.

Ideally, the next time the fixture goes out, you should use a volt meter to take a reading on the wall wires that connect to the fixture.

That way, we can check for power coming from the wall, and determine whether the problem is actually in the fixture.

Hi Jason,
Sorry to be so slow on the call back. While your advice sounded resonable, I contacted Lamps Plus, who sold the fixture to me.
Their Tech Dept. said it was the power supply and promptly made available a replacement available to me. Due to that, please make a refund on my request for advice. Good try, but thanks anyway.
