    Ive got two clients with fixtures that arent that old but are really corroding and some wont conduct electricity to the bulb.

    Anyone ever spray wd-40 in a fixture to stop rust and moisure?

    I see an equal amount of problems with mr-16 and t3 bulbs.

    Anyone replace lamp sockets?

    use better fixtures.
    almost all quality fixtures will have from a 5 year, to a lifetime warranty.

    if they are not that old and they are failing then they are poor quality period. If you cant get them to upgrade to better quality fixtures then at least install new quality sockets.

    I have never sprayed wd 40 in any fixture. I do use a dab or grease to prevent corrosion on sockets. Chances are if your fixtures are that bad then the installation methods leave something to be desired as well. Look for many problems in the years to come with this lighting system

    If you put some silicon on the pins, you should not have that problem. I also use a product called Buster. I will get the info for this later.
