Why did my pool light stop working?

If the breaker that your pool light is on has been tripped, unplug whatever you just turned on or plugged in and then reset the breaker by turning it all the way off and then back on again. If that doesn’t work, you may have a bad breaker. If you have any GFCI outlets on your pool light circuit, try resetting them.

If the bulb tests well (3-20 ohms) the fixture is probably bad. Try a new bulb without closing the fixture. It probably will not light, and the fixture will have to be replaced. If the bulb tests poorly (overflow, open, no continuity, infinite ohms), the light most likely will work fine with a new bulb and gasket.

Do LED pool lights burn out?

Simply, LEDs are tiny light bulbs that fit into an electrical circuit in the lamp. They don’t have a filament that will burn out, allowing them to run much cooler and last longer than regular incandescent bulbs. Unlike incandescent bulbs, LED pool lights will continue to work even if one LED burns out.
