hi, I have installed a Hampton Bay ec752 track with hanging lamp (where I had another type of lamp) and it keeps popping the breaker(everything else in this circuit works fine) every time I turn it on. I have checked with meter the connection and have changed switch, all cheks out well. I am using the 4amp, 25w, candelabra base, LED bulb from lights of America. any help?

Welcome to the forums! In instances such as this, it will boil down to a pinched wire or mis wired track. Usually the only way to fix it is to take it back down, noticing all the wiring as you do so. If you notice a broken or chaffed wire, it will need to be repaired and the track reconnected.

Take the actual fixture out of the track and see what happens then? If no problem when you flip the switch, you may have a bad fixture.
