Re: halogen spot turns off when it gets hot

sorry for the confusion

they are a surface mounted spot - so they sit pretty much flush with the ceiling, except for the cover plate. the lights themselves have 2 metal prongs that twist into the fixture. they are small wedge type bulb with the prongs.

they are probably cheap lights like said above. i have had 2 others in a different section burn out already. will try some new bulbs and see if that helps. thanks.

You might try lowering the wattage of the buld, it will be a little cooler.
