Led push lights - how to remove to replace a bulb

How do you remove these to replace a bulb? I figured you need to put a screwdriver or something flat under the entire unit and pry it away from the ceiling but it wasn't coming "easy" and I figured I would ask before I damage the light.

Should come off if you squeeze it together in the middle and pull down.

Hmmm. Tried but I don't think so. It's very inflexible. nothing that "gives" when I squeeze it.

Squeeze the lens only.

Ok, try pushing in and down hard on one side.

Wait I just got it. Put a small screwdriver in between the frosted dome and the housing. Easy pry and it pops out

Check the wiring in those things. We had trouble with one in ours and was able to fix it by just checking the wire connections.

Was it a bad wire crimp on the connection?

I really don't know. It wouldn't turn on sometimes so I took it apart to have a look. It's worked since I put it back together. I didn't redo any connections or anything like that. Just made sure the existing connections were tight.

I don't think anyone was actually looking at the picture when they answered. They were telling you how to pull the lens off of a standard run of the mill pancake light...not the super cool, push on/off Sunseeker LED super fantastulistic light.

I did answer this in another post a while back...but it looks like you figured it out.

Now I want to know how to dial down the brightness of these things. Holy cow. I feel like I'm on stage with theses lights! Thinking of putting a light coating of a tan spray paint. I thought I could swap the bulbs but... the thing underneath clearly is not designed for a simple light bulb swap. Any recommendations?

They can be individually controlled by pushing on the lens. If I have the living room lights on, I just turn a couple of them off if its too bright.

Funny, the lights being too bright was one of my complaints.

On the other hand, my wife loves that they are nice and bright.

So if you have a choice of who to please.... well you know the answer.

The advantage of the old fight fixtures is they often had two bulbs. So if you wanted a dim one for TV watching or over the bed for example, you could just remove a bulb or install a lower watt bulb.

Unfortunately my wife agrees it's too bright
