Comments about defective Lights Of American CFLs
The following is an email I just sent to "Lights of America".
To Whom It May Concern:
I have used your Model 2425 florescent bulbs in my home. That
is until one almost burned my house down. The bulb was used in a
hanging fixture hung over our kitchen table. It's the type of fixture
that has a globe that goes over the light. Thank goodness we were
home when the bulb malfunctioned. We couldn't figure where the burning,
electrical smell was coming from, but finally heard the "sizzling-sparking"
sound coming from within the globe. I turned the light out just
as the fixture appeared to be about to burst into flames. I see
there is a warning regarding "recessed enclosed fixtures",
but nothing is said about non-recessed fixtures similar to ours.
I would suggest that someone address this issue before some tragedy
occurs. The public needs to know that this light should not be used
in ANY enclosed fixture.
