Scare lite not working

I have a 2014 Microlite 19FD and the scare lite (led lights on this model) stopped working. The light was on and it suddenly turned off.

Anyone else have this issue?

Just a guess but...

aside from the obvious (bad switch and/or wiring/connections) some LED fixtures have a small surface mounted rectifier that is placed so as to, for one thing, allow you to hook up either wire to positive or negative and also to act as a "thermal disconnect" to open the light innards in case of over current, excess heat, etc. Not sure whether scare lights use these but I know that the smaller ceiling LEDs do have them. So...just a guess but if you open the light lens (carefully!) watch for any very small (approx. 1/4" sq) plastic looking thing that may have fallen off the circuit board with the lights...easy to lose by the melts itself off the circuit board thereby opening the light circuit. Sorry I cant be more precise but it's worth a look.
