Good evening,

Further to emails/discussion last week, my order for  HLV5022RB placed on Friday arrived via Royal Mail first class this morning (without requiring a signature), and I am glad to say the it worked fine straight out of the box.
 
It may be helpful for you to know that the John Lewis lamp purchased 3or4 years ago was available in black or white, and there was also a floor-standing version. The integrated cable terminated in a small two-pin plug (with one flat pin) which fitted the socket on HLV5022RB. A photo of the lamp is attached.

Thank you for your excellent & helpful service,

Peter Wilson.

To the guys at Savemylight.

I am emailing to express my thanks for the transformer I received today in Australia two days after ordering.
The service I received from Steve has been exemplary. Steve was able to point me in the direction of the exact model I needed.
However upon opening the package there was also a UK newspaper contained within.
What a lovely gesture and something I would not expect any company to include.
My light now shines brightly and I thank you for keeping my light going for many more years.

G'day to you all.

Adrian

Hello again Steve,

Thank you for all your help and advice so far.

I have followed your advice and got an electrician to drop by with the necessary probes, sensors etc and he found that the sensor switch you illustrated on your email is dead!
So could you please send me the illustrated item which is exactly the same as the one I have.

Please tell me the total cost if sent by post as you did for the previous part and I will pay by debit card as previously.

Many thanks again for your wonderful support and service.

With best wishes,
Roger

20/02/2020 - Stuart Fitton

Dear Sirs,

I just want to say a huge thank you to Steve and David who helped me in a relation to a troublesome light fitting.
Despite my insistence that the transformer sent was faulty it actually turned out to be melted wiring near the bulb holder that was as you described activating the safety cut out in the product.
I have now replaced the wiring, reinstalled the transformer and the unit clicked and auto reset.
Your supplied Guidance Notes are a fantastic read and answer everything a customer could need if they have a problem. The notes are so informative.
I should have taken mor notice of them instead of casually putting them to one side.
Thank you again for your techincal advice as it was spot on.
Great service from you guys and I will use you again in the future.

Best regards.

Stuart

15/01/2020 - Ruth Turner

Thank you. Your company truly deserves its name.

After contacting numerous electrical repairers and lighting shops who drew a blank in sourcing the transformer for my floor light I now have a fully working light again.

You may wish however to take issue with the Post Office. This delivery was not signed for but posted through the letter box as normal mail.

Thanks again, I felt my light was irreplaceable as it matched other lighting in the room so I would have had to replace 4 light fittings

Yours Sincerely,

Ruth Turner

Hello Steve,
Sorry for the late reply, I only just noticed the email.
The previous fault has been identified.
After replacing some of the bulbs we realised the power exceeded the transformer's output.
We have now taken all the bulbs out, and replaced our light with the appropriate wattage.

Replacement arrived from your selves today – all up and running.

12/03/2018 - David Stewart

Hi Steve

I just wanted to express my thanks for assisting me with my faulty light fitting and being able to diagnose the exact reason as to why my light fitting was not working.
Clearly you guys know your stuff despite my ramblings that the light was in perfect working order.
I now understand that if my original unit was not working and the new unit you guys sent was not working then the only avenue left was the fitting itself.
My own stupid fault for not checking what the dippy wife purchased! 20w G4 bulbs from B&Q and we have been using them for years so in effect doubling the load. So this is the reason why as they should be 10w. This is why the light cuts out and then comes back on.
Your guidance notes although long are invaluable and I should have taken more notice of them instead of 'skipping' through them.
I have learnt a valuable lesson in that it is not simply a case of swapping a component and the light fitting will work. As you said on the telephone to me the product is part of many components and components will affect the product. You were spot on!

Thanks again.
David

RESPONSE

Mr Stewart,

Thank you for your kind comments which I will pass on.
Unfortunately nearly every customer in the same situation as you believes the product is faulty and no matter how many times we try to explain to a customer of this they will not listen, understand or read the Guidance Notes.
It is a regular battle that we face. It is not a simple case of buying a new product and the light fitting will work again.
We have customers sticking test meters of all types on to the terminals to which they declare the product is faulty yet they are not even testing the product correctly as such the reading shown is completely wrong.
Customers instead get very angry and it ends up with customers demanding more and more products.
However I am pleased your light fitting is now up and running.

To Management,

I am writing to express my gratitude with the advice I received on the telephone from Steve.
Steve was able to diagnose the cause of the transformer not working witin minutes. I was using the wrong bulbs which most likely damaged my original unit.
What a service and it has saved me money hiring an electrician who would most likely have blamed the product.
Thanks once again.

28/11/2017 - Paul Ward

Thank you so much for your prompt service. I recieved my order and it worked perfectly, so much so I've placed another order for another touch dimmer.
FYI these are for a Phillips touch dimmer lamp which would take about 10-20 mins before it would start to work correctly. Once I replaced the dimmer it worked as it should.

Thanks again

Sir/Madam

We recently had a fault on a double rotary dimmer switch unit in a floor lamp in our living room.
On taking the switch unit to bits I discovered the fault and came to the conclusion that there was little chance of sourcing a replacement, and we were considering binning the floor lamp and replacing it.
I am a naturally curious person, and before deciding to bin it I took the whole switch unit to bits and discover a make and model number on the back. 
Typed this info into google, and in amongst the web pages that came up was your web site, and a page with the exact unit that I needed .I was pretty impressed with this alone, and I immediately ordered a replacement, along with the small extra delivery charge for 1st class postage.
All this was done around 10.30 yesterday morning.
I was even more impressed when our Posty rang the bell at 9 o'clock this morning and asked me to sign for your package.
Fitted the unit within half an hour , and the whole thing was up and running again in under 24hrs.
Pretty dammed good service if you ask me and I felt that I had to email you to thank you for an excellent service, and such a good idea to stock items that can repair broken equipment,rather than the throw away mentallty which is the norm for much of production goods nowadays.
Many thanks again and keep up the good work.
 
Cheers
Neil.
 
PS- Yes I am electrically trained, unlike our 3 year old grandson who did all the damage in the first place.
Hope your business is still going strong when he gets to be old enough to repair his own damage to things.

Many thanks you have a sale. Great service.

23/10/2017 - David Smith

To the Director,

I am writing to express my gratitude for the advice I received from your staff member Steve in relation to my light fitting.
It would seem my insistance that the product received was faulty was found to be incorrect as Steve was able to diagnose the exact fault with my light fitting by telephone.
A few weeks prior I had installed 20w bulbs (instead of 10w) thus doubling the power of the transformer something I was not aware that G4 bulbs came in different power ratings.
Steve stated this was a common occurrence thus had I read the accompanying guidance notes I would have realised my mistake.
You have a very knowledgeable staff member in Steve so just wanted to express my thanks.

Thank you for your kind email.

HUIBOLONG HTV160L1 ELECTRONIC TRANSFORMER

Hello

I just mount item and item not working (0 volts out)

Regards


RESPONSE

Hello,

All units are tested before dispatch. We do not dispatch faulty units. As I say to customers on a regular basis units will not fail immediately upon arrival.
Please ensure the safety cut out has not engaged. If it has the unit will not work or show any output.
Once the fault or component connected to the light fitting has been rectified the unit will auto reset. Most likely detecting the fault that caused your original unit to fail.

Also depending how you are testing the unit it will ALWAYS show 0v and this is why we ask customers not to test units as it gives the impression the unit is not working when it actually is.
Please explain exactly how you are testing the product?

Kind Regards,
Steven Williams

Hello sirs,

Can you be of assistance please. A light fitting purchased around October last year has failed, having tested it out and the transformer has decided its had enough, as I cannot find the original purchase receipt going back to suppliers is not an option, I doubt they would have spares anyway. However I am happy to purchase a transformer if they are available.
Can you please confirm availability and costs from yourselves to my address in United Kingdom. Thank you in advance for your help on this occasion.

Hello,

I would check that the safety cut out has not engaged before you consider buying a replacement.
This model is due back in July as we are having a large quantity produced.
However other manufacturer's models we supply will also be compatible.

Steve

Response

Hi  folks, The unit has been examined etc with nothing to indicate a safety cut out, there does not seem to be anything that can be pressed/pushed or slid. Seems like I need to wait until they are back into your stock unless you have a similar unit which can successfully replace it.
We would appreciate if you could place our order and advise us accordingly. Thank you. H

Reply

There are no buttons to be pressed or slid. It is part of the PCB inside the unit.
A lighting shop may be of assistance to you.

Steve

Response

Thank you for your call earlier this week and for advice and guidance given. I have had the light examined again, I am extremely happy to report the fault was located between the two sections where the wiring separates to the Halogen lamps, now that this has been located and rectified all seems to be working correctly. As indicated by yourselves when the fault is removed the transformer will reset itself. Thank you so much for your very helpful and accurate assistance. Cheers and thank you again.

Hi,

I have a lamp with the driver: WAIBERLON HLV50021TD DIMMABLE CONSTANT CURRENT LED DRIVER and i like to add a dimmer to this LED driver.
I have testes several dimmers from klikaanklikuit and all of the let the driver buzz when it is dimmed.
Can you tell me what i have to change? LEDs are 4x5W set in serial (1 lamp have 9.3 volt).
The lamp i use is from Karwei and is named NANDOR.

Kind regards,

Hello,

If the dimmers are buzzing they are not compatible.
You need a Trailing Edge Dimmer.

Hi Steven,
Thank you for the right information.

Concerning my order with number 700001297
 
Dear,
 
After you send you're information how we must connect the transfo we did like you descried and and we then measure true a multimeter the output. 
We didn't measure any voltage on the multimeter (so 0v instead of 12 V) 
We did then a test with a small 12V light and great was our surprise because it was burning 
So we connected the chandelier and it worked properly. Our electrician was surprised because he has neev seen that before .
So everything is in order but can you guys gives us an explanation why we measured nothing (with a multimeter)  and when we connected a 12 V light it was burning .
 
REPLY
 
Hello,
 
The reason you do not get an output when testing the product on it’s own is because you are measuring the residual charge in the circuit which will normally show 0.1 – 0.6v or 0v.
Our transformers do not give out 12v simply by connecting a 240v supply. It is a common customer misconception that a transformer will give 12v by connecting a 240v supply and no matter how many times we advise electricians they simply cannot understand why this is.
But when you connect a bulb or bulbs to the transformer you are generating a load as such the transformer detects this and regulates the power supply to the bulb. The more bulbs the more power the transformer will give.
I have this same conversation at least 20 times a day all with different products and the majority of electricians simply do not understand the workings of our products. They all assume a 12v output will be given and this is simply not correct. Only the other day did an electrician in the UK call me a liar and said we were talking rubbish because he could not get an output. He clearly needs retraining.
Unfortunately some electricians think they know it all and cannot be advised otherwise.
I am pleased the light is working.

Hi

We have used the transformer that you despatched on 30 January and it is
working fine but now our other light fitting has blown its transformer!!!
So we do need this second one too!  Guess the transformers must have both

Thank you for checking first - that is most efficient service.  Also - thank
you for your speedy despatch of the other one too.

Hi,

Wonder if you can help me.  Finally got round to replacing a bunch of halogen bulbs in a hall light.  All worked fine then I replaced another halogen bulb on the same circuit and when I switched the light back on, it tripped the fuse and now the big light won't work.

I've tested the circuit, that's all live but I get no continuity on the light fitting (I've taken it down now).

It has ten 20W 12V halogen bulbs.  I'm wondering if 200W has blown the transformer - is that likely?  I'm attaching a picture of the transformer.

I was wondering if a 300W transformer is the appropriate replacement - the Eaglerise one looks just the thing but I wanted to check that it will fit and how easy they are to replace.

Any advice gratefully received.

Regards

Andy Wright

Hello,
 
Overpowered!
Unit is rated to 105w and you have inserted 200w of power.
You have either blown the unit or it is in safety mode.
Upgrading to such a large unit may not be possible depending on the gauge of the wiring.

Hi Steve,

Took half the bulbs out and fitted it back on the ceiling.  Works a treat!

Didn't know a transformer could protect a light in that way.  You've saved me a bit of money and a lot of hassle.

Thanks!

Hello,

I just received the Constant Voltage LED Driver and I was able to repair my ceiling Hofstein 9 spot LED.

I am completely satisfied with this order delivered quickly and thank you because it was almost impossible to find a Driver 12 Vdc / 500mA.

I wish you a very good year 2017.

Dear all,

Transformer well received, unfortunately not working.

Hello,

All units are tested before despatch. We do not despatch faulty units. Units will not immediately fail upon arrival unless the fault has affected the product.
Infact I tested your unit as my name is on the testing sheet so I can assure you the unit is not faulty.
Please ensure the safety cut out (SCO) has not engaged. If it has the unit will not work at all.
The unit will auto reset once the fault / issue / component affecting the product has been rectified.
If the original fault was not known or not rectified then installing the new unit is very risky as it can be damaged unintentionally.
We are receiving units back in safety mode as customers believe they are faulty, which is resulting in customers being charged for the retesting and redespatch as the product has to go through an extended test.
Please check the unit is not in safety mode to avoid this charge.

Hi
I recently purchased a Hy 3360 dimmer i have 2 similar lights and had a
replacement switch for one which must be  a HY3360D. But on taking this
light apart the dimmer is a KD323C. When looking at this dimmer on your site
it says the HY3360D can be interchanged with the KD323C which has 4
connections one of which is a blue wire going to an earth terminal,
therefore can this earth wire be ignored. Thus just wiring live and the 60W
and 300W.
Thanks in anticipation of your help

Derek

RESPONSE

Hello,

The fly wire is a second neutral wire it does NOT run to earth.
Some light fittings have multiple neutrals. If you only have one you can cap
it off.
The same for the earth point. If you have no earth you can close the
terminal screw to the closed position and leave.
On the 3360D the neutral is wired externally.

Steve

REPLY

Hi Steve

Thanks for your reply.
Have now wired up light removing spare neutral wire and it is working fine.
Thanks for your very helpful reply.

Dear Steve,
Thank you for your advice re my light fitting with broken transformer.
It appears the product you sent was indeed not faulty despite my insistence it was and the issue stopping the transformer from working was a damaged, burnt out terminal block holding all the neutral wires together.
I can only guess this was done when the original unit failed and caused a surge of power.
The terminal has been replaced as some of the wiring and the light now works.
Thank you again.

Mr Hunter

RESPONSE

Hello Mr Hunter,

Don't worry. I am used to it now.
Damaged crimp hat terminals are very common. The damage happens when the original transformer gives that last surge of power before failing.
I am pleased your light is now fixed.

Steve

Hello Steve,

I have to say what a wonderful service from you guys.
To diagnose the exact fault of my light fitting over the telephone without even seeing it is phenominal.
You clearly know your products and their features.As for the notes attached normally you are lucky to even get a scrap of paper with basic instructions on when you buy something, but your 2 pages of A4 notes are superb. The detail in them describing issues and what to do is a credit to your knowledgeable staff.
I have bookmarked you and will certainly recommend you to the trade.

Mr I Hannant

RESPONSE

Dear Mr Hannant.

Thank you for your email.

The problem you describe I hear at least twenty times a day over a nine year period so when a customer describes an issue I can normally diagnose the fault instantly.
The issues are mostly the same and always involve the safety cut out.
It's great to receive emails like this as it shows our service is working.
I just wish more customers would read the guidance notes before fitting products as the information contained within them can assist with issues of products not working.

Hello,

I had a problem with my LED Electric Fire made by Valor, the LED lighting effect had failed. When I contacted them I eventually managed to identify the LED driver part that was required to "save" my fire which was extremely expensive from their UK Spares supplier and because of the cost to repair I was on the verge of scrapping it and buying a new fire. Then I managed to find your company via a Google search for the part number. What a fantastic service you provide, not only was the part considerably cheaper (far more sensibly priced) but the delivery service, which arrived the next day was second to none. I have fitted the part and now my fire is working fully again. Thank you very much for helping me to "Save my Fire".

Hi there

Thank you for sending this transformer. I've had it fitted by a qualified electrician and it works for about 20 minutes and then goes off for about 30 mins before switching itself back on! Please could you advise, thanks

RESPONSE

Hello,

You describe a classic example of the safety cut out (SCO) engaging and resetting itself.
The SCO is not a fault. It is a safety feature.
Unit is detecting a fault so is shutting down once reaching its maximum operating temperature. Once cooled it resets and then the whole cycle starts again.
We call this revolving door as the procedure continues to repeat iteself.
The fault that caused your original unit to fail is still present. Most likely incorrect bulbs as this is the most common reason.
The fault must be cleared for the unit to work normally.
Please can you tell me how many bulbs you have on the light fitting and the wattage of the bulbs you are using?
Also are they LED or halogen?

Steve

REPLY

Hi there

thanks so much for your advice - you were right: i had a mixture of 10 and 20 amp in the light so I've changed them all to 10.

Kind wishes

Rhian

I'm sorry i lost the thread yesterday. You did indeed , your bang on with the wattage she has been replacing lamps with 20w instead 10w, seeing there are 12 of them it takes it well over the va range. I was looking too deep, it may be simply a case of replacing lamps. I looked into a little then called the client only to be told she's sticking in 20 w lamps.
Thanking you for your help , if I can't return the tranny then she can pay for it as a lesson learned.

Regards

Bob Tidmarsh

RESPONSE

Hello,

That is 3 times today customers have called and used incorrect bulbs. We get customers who call daily, identical issue.
It is so common.
Remove the bulbs and see if the safety cut out resets. If not, it may have damaged the unit, but on occasions some people are lucky.
Maximum on the 150w is 15 bulbs at 10w. If the customer wants to use 20w bulbs then a transformer of at least 300w will be needed, but you will need to check the wiring is capable of double loading.

Steve

REPLY

Yes
I realised she had a mix.
I will try what you suggested.

Enquiry

Dear Steve

First of all, thank you for your help.

Second, does it matter that there is no earth on the new Jindel ballast?

Thirdly, what do I do with the four wires that come out of the new Jindel ballast block and go into the plastic four-hole socket which is for a four-pin lamp, please?  My fitting's original Kebaohengji ballast has two lots of two wires going into two sides of the plastic block which takes the lamp and doesn't have a single four-pin "female" block like this new Jindel ballast has but goes into a different kind of lamp-connector, as per the attached photos.

Cordial regards.

Response

Hello,
 
Lop the Jindel plug off and follow the wires exactly the same to the pins on the bulb terminal. I would leave some wire on your existing plug terminal so you can easily join up to the new Jindel wiring.
All you have there is a different shape bulb with the pins in opposite directions as opposed to the straight GXQ10 plug that is fitted to the Jindel ballast.
Each block of 2 wires goes to one pair of terminals on each side of the bulb.
The Jindel has no earth wire.

Hi Steve

We had the new transformer fitted yesterday but are having some issues with it. When it was first switched on it just flickered once and then switched off. The lamp was removed and wiring checked once again but still with the same results. Next, all the bulbs were removed, checked and refitted 5 at a time. The lamp then worked perfectly until more than 15 out of the 20 bulbs were fitted? With 15 fitted the lamp can be switched on and off with know issues but with just one extra bulb fitted it flickers once and again turns off. It also does not matter how the bulbs are spread around the lamp the result is always the same.
Any suggestions would be most grateful.
Many thanks

James

Hello,

You are overloading the unit. Incorrect bulbs which go over the rating of the transformer.
The safety cut out is kicking in.
When it detects an overload it will flicker / dim and shut down.
This may be why your previous unit failed.

Steve

Hi Steve

Cheers for that just checked each bulb fitted and 5 of them are 20w rather than the required 10w so that confirms the overloading. The lamp is 9 years old but I guess having the incorrect bulbs didn't help. Thanks for your help much appreciated

Initial Question

Hello,

I have a ceiling light fixture that uses a SET210CS transformer. I see that the description says it is dimmable via the primary. I installed a 40-400W, 200-250 VAC dimmer switch, but it did not work well with the transformer. The SET210CS buzzed loudly and flashed the lights at most dimmer positions. 

I tried a second dimmer to see if the first was defective. Both had the same results. Both dimmers are now working very well with lights that do not use transformers.

Is there a different type of dimmer that I can buy for this transformer? Or should I look for a different transformer that works with this type of dimmer?

Thanks,
 
Mark

Response

Hello,

Some of the earlier units are not dimmable.

The units we have are dimmable with a Trailing Edge Dimmer.
