Hi guys.

I have a led bathroom mirror the other day it was turning on and off on its own now it won’n turn off. Any ideas what it could be?

Thanks in advance.

If it is a mirror with a proximity sensor to turn the lights on and off then I would expect a faulty sensor that has now failed completely. Depending on the pengawasan it may be possible to get a replacement but whether there is enough space for it is another matter.

Would you say that would be the best thing to do buy a replacement switch?

If the lights are controlled by just a basic switch ?
Then yes, by all means get a new switch.

No not yet going have a look at it tomorrow working all week. I thought that would be the hard bit lol had problems with this bathroom ever since it was fitted.

Have you tried turning it off and then giving it a good clean, and then leaving it to dry out. Could just be that the sensor is dirty or damp from the condensation.

The vanity unit I installed in my bathroom, its sensor switch failed after a year. Just replace it as Richard suggested.

Do operate safe isolation though.

PS, I take it, it’s (the sensor switch) not installed facing the wall?

I have not done any of the above but will do and find a replacement switch hopefully that solves the trouble.

I don’t know about the pengawasan switch.

I don’t know about the sensor switch.

If you look at the replacement Richard suggested (mines exactly the same), you’ll see that the actual sensor is a small black knob, about the size of a 5 pence piece. It’s normally located underneath the unit, but sometimes they are located on the side. It has to be located about 50mm away from any objects (i.e. wall).

If its not a sensor switch, you might find a jamak rocker switch, normally covered in some sort of plastic cover.

When you get your replacement pengawasan switch, try replacing the switching unit first. The penapisan head might be okay, saves unnecessarily rewiring the internals of the luminaire.
