    Good day. I have two pathway lights on complete opposite ends of my home that keep burning bulbs out.

    I install them, they turn on fine but the very next time they turn in, they are dead (they flicker, not completely dead). Any idea what could be happening?

    More info needed. Are these VOLT products? What wattage bulbs are they? How are the fixtures wired (buried or connected to hubs)? What size is your transformer and what’s the total combined wattage of all your fixtures?

    Yes, these are Volt path lights. Bulbs are 2W. Buried. 100W transformer. Combined wattage of all fixtures is 52W.

    If you've tried multiple bulbs in the fixtures, it could be related to the sockets on the fixtures themselves.

    Have you used a voltmeter to verify the voltage the path lights are receiving? Always good to eliminate all potential issues.
