Is this fixture dimmable ?

Asked by Bob February 21, 2016

Answers

We installed this fixture with a dimmer switch. Its does dim but when I turn off the switch, the light does not turn off. Any ideas what is causing this?

Are there multiple wiring knock-outs, including on the back side?

Asked by Jon February 4, 2016
10
Answers

This answer is for the 18" fixture - YMMV for the other lengths. Assume the orientation of the fixture is as normally mounted under a cabinet: light strip to the front and pointing down. Given that orientation, there are 5 total round wiring knockouts, each approximately 1/2" in diameter. There is a knockout on either end, left and right, with center at 3/4" from the back side. There are 3 knockouts along the back side, with center measurements from the left side of 1 1/4", 5 1/2" and 16 3/4". I've got three of these lights and I really like them - so much better than the flourescent fixtures they replaced, and they are easy to mount and wire.

Answers

These are direct wire (i.e. Romex) and even have easy-to-connect terminals for solid-core 14 awg Romex which do not require wire nuts. Very easy to wire up.

Can these lights be ran in series - i.e. connect multiple units in line with the same dimmer switch?

Asked by Mike March 26, 2016
9
Answers

One issue - they come with one cable connector for the incoming wire. To connect to the next fixture you need a similar connector for the outgoing wire. Problem is that it requires a 1/4 knockout. HD and no one else locally sells these. Guy at HD said just use black tape - wrong - that does not meet code and is not totally safe. Went to local electrical supply company and they had never seen one. Thought it was an obsolete item. Finally had to order 2 online. Inexpensive part but high charge for shipping.

Since there's no bulb, what do I do throw the light out and spend another $50?????

Asked by Cab December 3, 2016

Answers

Yes, in about 16 years you'd need to spend another $50 (by then, $100).

Can you set the "warm" or "cool" on this light fixture?

Asked by Chris March 23, 2019

Answers

When I installed, I don't recall seeing a setting for preference. It is a bright white. Great for kitchen needs.

can these lights be connected so put 3 on one switch?

Asked by rp July 2, 2019
7
Answers

Yes, I have 3 light panels on 1 switch in my kitchen, 2 are 24” under the cabinets above my stove and 1 is 48” under the cabinet that is over a countertop.

can a pull cord/chain be used/added to this unit to turn it on and off?

Asked by homeowner August 27, 2017
6
Answers

Yes, I just bought this GE_Model # 26742 and added a pull chain light switch also bought from home depot. I used a side hole knock out but the hole was too big and the switch would slip through the hole. So I got two large metal washers and drilled out each washer's center hole to fit the pull chain switch diameter. You need one washer to fit inside and one outside the cabinet to hold the switch in place. Mounted it in the side corner knock out hole and made it a perfect fit. Does not get in the way of internal parts or wiring. Perfect. See my pictures attached.

Answers

The fixtures are not linkable (meaning you cannot wire them in series). Absent that hurdle, will not have any other electrical issues; but the light quality and color likely will not match between the LED and fluorescent fixtures. This will be especially noticeable if the fluorescent tubes are cool white, but it will probably still be quite evident no matter what color fluorescent tubes you use. I'd either switch everything (and be able to use the dimming function). or perhaps consider an LED strip light that can be cut to fit your desired space.

I want to give this light two ratings. A ONE for installation and a FIVE for light output. You have to completely disassemble the assembly to install, then re-assemble with very tiny screws all while hanging upside down. Also, the knockouts for wiring are not in the center, which makes zero sense. Once it's all installed the light is a nice warm even glow with a nice beam pattern. Hope they dim well.

If you're planning to purchase this product please be sure to check the light spectrum shown on the back of the box under "lighting facts" and "Color Accuracy". I looked at the pictures and video in the product description PLUS some of the photos included in the reviews. They were exactly what I was looking for. To replace my under cabinet fluorescent lighting, and keep a light spectrum match, I needed the "white" light. With LED lighting it is referred to as "Daylight". The back of the box displayed a light spectrum on the edge of both "Warm White" and "Bright White" which is more of an incandescent bulb light spectrum BUT I figured the video and pictures would be more accurate. NOT the case. Please see my "real world" photo. Installing under cabinet lighting is as much a gymnast trade as electrical, especially when it's over a sink, behind a valence mounted on a floating panel. Youth is a wonderful tool to have for this as well. The connector itself requires 1-1/2" recess as the light is so trim that you don't have the space to mount it from the inside. The light is about 1/3rd the size of the one it's replacing, so for me there was an adjustment and a lil touch up. The rating was for the misleading light spectrum. The quality seemed excellent for its ability to hold tightly together. The value is rated a little low as I must adjust to the color and don't know how long it will perform..

Very tight area for connections. Best to use knock out somewhere other than switch side. But if you must cut each incoming lead about 1/2 inch shorter than next, use traditional wire nuts, and cut off excess wire in fixture. Works well with lutron c l wall dimmer with no flicker and very slight hum (way less than non- dimmable florescents it replaced)

Small size is a plus, but makes it difficult to get connections in the case and even more so on the switch side of unit. I found it is best to cut each wire about 1/2 inch shorter than the next and cut out excess hook-up wiring in the unit. Also use had to use smaller traditional wire nuts to make connections. Once installed they give great even light much like florescent cool white, but without the hum and flicker.

The GE 12 in. Premium LED direct wire under cabinet light is the perfect light. I installed three of these in a brand new kitchen and they are exactly what I wanted. I have them direct wired to a light switch on the wall but if I want, I can turn each light off manually at the light itself by using the rocker switch that's on top of each light. I have used other under cabinet lights in the past that advertise being the brightest but quite honestly, I don't like to be blinded, instead, I really do prefer these 12 in. Premium LED lights over the other brighter, more expensive ones. This 12 in. Premium LED light is hands down the all around perfect under cabinet light.

Fantastic LED lights. They have a great warm glow and dim perfectly. Have installed them in 2 homes. Installation is a breeze with the connectors. Just trim the wire and push into the clip. No need to use wire nuts. I have it paired with the Lutron Caseta dimmer and they are controlled and dimmed with the Amazon Echo. All work flawlessly.

I bought this about a week ago and finally had the final part to wire this all up together. I bought two of these at the time because they were going to be put underneath my metal cabinets I have in the garage. I glued some neodymium magnets to their base and attached it that way so I can easily remove them if need be. Then I got an extension cord repair cord to wire them to an outlet socket. Wired both lights together and to the extension cord and turned them on and had a good amount of light now at my workbench.
