I am changing my can lights to LED can lights using the Halo retrofit lights. Can Lights I am using
Unfortunately my house has two different style can lights. One has the normal E26 screw type and the other cans have 4 Pin CFLs. I watches several YouTube tutorials on how to convert 4 pin CFL can to LED by removing the ballast and taking out two of the four wires. Then wire the remaining two to the main line 14/2. This is where my current issue is. After removing two of the wires (one red and one blue) I noticed that the clear insulation, at least I think it's insulation, around the wire is peeling off and I am not sure if the wire are still good to use.
As you can see in the image, the clear insulation is just lifting off. So couple questions.
Are these wire still OK to use? If yes, any electrical hazard arcing, fire, etc...?
What causes something like this?
If the wires are not OK to use, can I just run new wire in the can light conduit replacing those existing wires? Basically re-wiring the can light with new cable. If yes, what kind of wire should I buy.
