I have two outside light fixtures in which the bulbs constantly burn out way before their time. I know this beacuse I have replaced them several times in the past year and othe outside lights that have remained on thoughout the night have yet to be replaced. I am convinced there is something wrong with the wiring or fixtures... what do you folks think?

I would love to know the answer to this as I have the same problem. I've even gone to the trouble for replacing both outdoor fixtures and now the bulbs only last 1 day!!!

hello dim,
there r several thingsd that can cause bulbs to burn out fast.
1. bad sockets 2. loose connections
3. improper voltage bulbs 4. vibrations
5. high temps 6. moisture 7. rapid tourning off and on 8. improper wireing
this is abought every thing i can think of u will just have to check every thing out to find out which it is. bad sockets and loose connections r the most common.
