There is absolutely NO WAY this is true. Even if this info came from the manufacturer (which scares me BTW). Lights like this are designed to also be installed between floors, so what do they suggest then?? Just pull down on the trim ring and the whole trim should come down. The lamp should snap into the trim and the socket goes on the lamp with a slight ...
As said above, the motivation is the heat dissipation and risk of fire. With today's LED technology this risk is no more as long as LED bulbs are used. The insurance issue would still remain, and you could be held responsible in case someone later install an halogen bulb. These lights are also no more sold by IKEA as far as I can see today.
If the last light goes out when the second to last is removed, the wiring error may be: Where electricity travels through the second to last bulb, on it's way to the last bulb. If so the last two bulbs may also have been dimmer than normal (if they are incandescent). The bulb type matters here: using CFL or LED lights during testing can add to the ...
How many lights in total? The total wattage of all globes may exceed the switch/circuit rating? i.e. 6x 100W globes on a 400W dimmer or switch. You could possibly run two parallel sets to reduce the load, but this will decrease brightness. e.g. use (+)---switch<===:=:=:===>---(g) rather than (+)---switch---.-.-.-.-.-.---(g)
It should be noted that while PAR LED's have the form factor of traditional halogen PAR bulbs, they do not have the parabolic reflectors of traditional PAR's. The light emitting diode cannot be suspended in space, in the middle of a reflector the way a filament can, at least not yet, it has to be mounted on a board. So, all of the light is coming directly ...
Evidence would suggest there is a wiring error. Recheck the wiring and all the connections - something is not connected, or is connected incorrectly. Since you claim to have tested that there is power to all the fixtures, one of two things is probably the case: There is a high resistance connection which allows you to see voltage with a tester, but which ...
