Interior LED light flashing

We have a 2015 escape 19. The ceiling LED light began flashing duing our Florida trip this year. When we removed the cover what we found underneath doesn"t appear to be a replaceable bulb.

Help. Does the whole fixture need to be replaced?

Thanks
Caren

It is replaceable, if it's anything like my 2015. Its just an LED pancake bulb with a mini wedge connection. There's a screw that holds it in place then it just pulls out from the base.

Before attempting to replace it, try removing and cleaning the contacts, then reinsert and secure it with the screw. Might make it work properly.

You're welcome. For reference, Diamond Group 65432 should be a direct replacement, or close enough.

Robert,
Thanks again for responding and sharing the link but our fixture does not appear to be the same. I will try to attatch a picture of it to see if there are any more suggestions.

The wires are soldered to the plate with the bulbs.

Ah! You got the newer fixtures. They must have switched sometime in later 2015. The bulbs on these can be replaced, but I think it takes a solder gun because the bulbs don't come with the leads pre-soldered on. First, I'd check the connections on those wire nuts. If that doesn't correct it, it's probably easier to just replace the fixture. Check with Escape and they should be able to give you the brand and model.

They are a relatively inexpensive fixture at $12.00; cheaper than some replacement lamps. Here is an Amazon link for the fixture: Falcon Dimmable LED.. They do seem to have a "Disco" effect problem - I had one go bad in my 2017 21 within 4 months of purchase. Escape replaced it...

Well there you go Larry. I doubt you could find just the bulb for the price of the whole fixture. Thanks Jon for the link.

Thank you, I will be placing that order today.
