I use these for cabinet lights controlled through magnetic door switches. I originally used tape to hold on the switches and one fell off leaving the light on for a day or more. The double stick failed from the heat. I've since drill small holes and screwed on the magnetic switches.

I also have four of these in my bathroom replacing incandescent lamps there. I use it so briefly there are no issues.

I've replaced the fixture type lamps with LEDs with bayonet type LEDs. These are pricey but reliable. Available in warm and cold versions. The cold ones are very bright and some people find the light objectionable. I don't mind them. I use the Warmer colors for reading lamps and above the galley area.

I have left one of my outdoor lamps on for weeks with no issues.

After I replaced my lights with leds in my scamp 16, I had an issue with the crosshatching on the inside of the light dome. The crosshatching had changed the light pattern, giving off bands of lighter and darker light. I thought of lightly sanding the inside, but ended up coating the inside of the dome with a light layer of white glue. When the glue dried, it left a nice thin "frosted" coating that got rid of the light patterns.

The light bulb just came on

The area of your fixtures where the panels go is flat

Mine are curved making the contact surface much less.Maybe that's why the two strips along the sides is working??

hi joe

That makes sense. Maybe you will get better venting having a curved back to stick to.
