The LED light over our kitchen sink has been acting up for a while. The 3 LED bulbs would flicker, go out, come back on, etc. – very annoying. We removed the plastic cover so we could fiddle with the misbehaving bulbs easier, but the whole thing was definitely in need of replacing.
Last week I disconnected it so I could see if it was hard-wired or plugged into a hidden outlet. It was hard-wired. So over the weekend hubby and I went to Home Depot and bought this LED replacement:
I like that there’s 7 LEDs that don’t ever need replacing [they’re embedded in the light vs. being removable bulbs]. Hubby liked that the light bar is dimmable. And I have to say, now that it’s installed, so do I! Despite being advertised for $99.97 online, it was $86 in the store.
It was VERY easy to install! Just pop the back compartment off:
Connect the black, white & ground [green] wire to the electrical cable coming out of the wall:
Pop the back back on, secure the light to the underside of the cupboard above the sink with the included screws, and done!
Here’s the dimmer dial:
This morning I came downstairs and hubby had turned the dimmer dial way down. It gave a nice, low, ambient glow to the otherwise dark kitchen. Much better than being greeted by bright lights! I wish I’d thought to take a picture… maybe I’ll get one tomorrow morning and update this post.
This was item #7 on my list of projects to complete in 2015. Woohoo! Of course, out of 12 projects, I’ve only completed 2 so far, but every completion counts 🙂
