Can LEDs be used with a clapper device?
No. However, we do carry other lighting products that can be operated hands-free such as smart light bulbs.
Do LED bulbs cause radio frequency interference? Or interference with my radio or TV.
It is possible, although our product does meet the FCC standards regarding RFI. If you are experiencing interference your TV or radio may be too close to the light/light fixture. If possible, please try moving the light away from TV or radio.
Do LED bulbs create heat?
Yes, but considerably less heat than other technologies. When handling any bulb, you should use caution and turn off the bulb before handling to ensure it cools down and keep safety in mind.
Can LED bulbs be used in enclosed fixtures?
Yes, as long as the bulb is rated for use in enclosed fixtures and the fixture does not have a rubber gasket. LED bulbs need ventilation and a rubber gasket would prevent proper ventilation.
Why do only some of the bulbs work in my fixture?
Either the bulb or the socket is dead or defective. Try the light bulb in another socket to see if it works. If the light bulb does not work in another working socket, then the bulb is defective. If the bulbs work in another socket, then the socket within that fixture is bad.
What is the humming noise coming from the bulb?
Humming noise can be a result of an incompatible dimmer (please check out our dimmer compatibility list) or an issue/defect with the light bulb.
If the light is cracked can I still use it?
Cracked lights are signs of damage and it is best to exchange the product where they were purchased. LED bulbs will most likely work with a crack, while other bulbs such as fluorescents, halogens, and incandescent bulbs will not.
Are LED bulbs dimmable?
LED bulbs can be dimmable or non-dimmable. Check the product packaging and the Feit website product page for more specific information. For a list of compatible dimmers check The Feit Electric Compatible Dimmer list.
Can LED lights operate in an oven?
LED light bulbs are not equipped with the heat resistance required for operating in high-temperature environments such as ovens. Therefore, we advise against using LED bulbs in ovens. Instead, we recommend opting for specialized light bulbs, such as halogen or incandescent bulbs, which are specifically designed to withstand the elevated temperatures found inside ovens.
What's the difference between wet vs. damp locations?
Bulbs rated for wet locations are essentially weatherproof so they can be used in just about any application indoors (Bulbs rated for wet locations are essentially weatherproof and have more protection against exposure to moisture/elements. The Indoor/Outdoor use should be determined by the category and choice of light.) Bulbs rated for damp locations can be used outdoors but must have protection from the elements. They cannot be used in exposed fixtures or they will fail due to too much moisture.
