Track Light goes out occasionaly

I have a Roth and Allen LED track light. It occasionally goes out and then it won't turn back on for a day or two. Another thing that concerns me about this fixture is that when I put a non-contact voltage tester near any of the LED light fixtures, it beeps like crazy. If the light is turned on, it of course beeps like I would expect. But when if is turned OFF, the non-contact voltage tester beeps very rapidly like I've never heard it do before. Should I be concerned?

Check how your light & switch are wired. Is the switch on the hot or neutral wire? Switching the hot will stop power from getting to the light and your tester should not sound when the switch is off. Switching the neutral can turn the light on and off but it leaves the light always energized and your tester will alert all the time.
