Blowing Light Bulbs

2102 Views 9 Replies 9 Participants Last post by  Hardly Working
Okay so here's the deal I'm sent out to a house to finish a remodel and install a set of ceiling lights. So I go ahead and hook up the lights and after a couple days I threw a couple bulbs in them. After a day or two when I come in the morning I flip the switch and pop there goes another bulb. So I changed it out for another bulb and a few days later pop. Voltage is not that high only at 112-118 volts.
Ideas? :sad:

I've found the problem is usually I end up with a bad case of bulbs.

Big box store customers and employees drop these boxes all the time and they end up right back on the shelf.

Try bulbs from a different batch.
