Can I use led lights in this can or do I need a different housing . If so which one will work. Thanks David K.

The CommunityAnswer from April 2016 may be correct, though the housing product description says "Compatible with a wide variety of 6 in. LED retrofit trims but is best with Halo quality RL, RA, SLD, LT, SMD and ML series models (Bulb free with some having a 45 year LED lifespan)". I bought the Model # LT560WH6950R and I have not been able to fit it into this housing no matter what I try. The housing is already installed so I guess I'll try to find another LED retrofit trim. Maddening waste of time.

Can I use 14/2 Romex on these housing or does it have to be 12? I saw the junction box stated 4 max conductor no. 12Awg

Yes...14 gauge wire is fine as long as it's protected by a 15 amp breaker.

Though you can use the template provide and cut with a hand saw the best is a 6'' diameter hole saw setup. Just take your time doing the layout to avoid contact with beams and existing wiring.

Can these be dimmed?

Answers

This item does not have anything to do with current draw, or dimming capability. The load that is installed into this item would determine whether or not you can use a dimmer, and what size wire would be needed.

No, it's just an aluminum shell. I just installed one this past week.

are these safe to use in bathroom ceilings?

Yes, but invest the money in an LED light/trim. it makes the recess can ok for wet locations. The unit is made of all aluminum anyway. Be smart and also get a dimmer for LED to help save money on your electric bill. You can get it all at Home Depot.

Is it ok to run 14/2 or 14/3 awg to recessed lighting on a 20a breaker?

No...14 gauge wire is only rated for 15 amps per the NEC.

Don, the housing comes with a junction box attached with cover (I am looking at it right now at the picture of it with knock outs and a cover). You simply connect your wire through the junction box knock outs into the quick connect recepticles and re-attach the cover. Enjoy!

CAN YOU USE THIS HOUSING FOR NEW CONSTRUCTION ?

You can, but you'd be better off with a new construction version that you put up before the drywall goes in.

How many cans can I have in one series or circuit?

It depends on the wattage of the bulb. If you use LED, for example, calculate the wattage and make sure your dimmer can handle the load as well.

I DO NOT RECOMMEND THIS SHALLOW HOUSING BECAUSE IT IS TOO SHALLOW FOR MOUNTING A HALO LED CONVERSION RECESSED LIGHT. THE TOP OF THE LED LIGHT INTERFERES WITH THE SCREW-IN SOCKET PLUG AND DOES NOT ALLOW THE BEZEL TO REST FLUSH AGAINST THE CEILING. IT IS ABOUT 3/8 OF AN INCH SHY OF BEING DEEP ENOUGH. ALSO THE FOUR RETAINING SPRING CLIPS ARE USELESS AND I HAD TO SCREW THE HOUSING IN PLACE BEHIND THE CEILING. OBVIOUSLY THE SALESPERSON WAS NOT AWARE OF THE INTERFERENCE PROBLEM WHEN USING THIS HALO SHALLOW HOUSING WITH THE HALO BRAND LED CONVERSION LIGHTS. NOW I NEED TO CREATE SOME KIND OF A SPACER RING TO MAKE UP THE DIFFERENCE AND ALLOW THE LIGHT FLANGE TO REST ON SOMETHING SOLID.

I decided to buy this product to replace an old ugly fluorescent light that was in the kitchen, when I bought the house. After further inspection the fluorescent light was giving me problems over 2 years so I decided to replace it with a new fluorescent kit or recess lighting. I decided to go with recess lighting remodel, so I can place the recessed lights where I want them to produce more light at. The recessed lighting was easy to install, and you can place the lights where you want them, it makes a difference and looks great, giving off much more light. I know it was a good investment.
