LED lights

I removed the covers on my LED lights under the cabinets to clean the lens. I cleaned the lens and put the lens back on. Now my lights are very dim on all the lights that I removed the lens from. Any ideas why they a dim? Thanks

What did you clean them with? Did you use a harsh chemical that may have hazed the covers? I do mine with soap and water in the kitchen sink.

I used a soft cloth, no soap or water

The problem isn't the lens, it's the led lights that are dim. I took the covers off completely and they are still dim.

You don't say what your model is, but does it have dimmable lights? Possible that dimmer switch got turned down?

2014 Precept 31 UL. No dimmer switch. They work fine until I removed the covers. Dusted the inside of the cover put it back on and now they are dim. I'm totally baffled.

Are all the LEDs that are dim on the same switch? Is there a mixture of dim/bright on a single switch? More than one switch with dim/bright lights?

Trying to understand if it is one circuit that has the issue or multiple and if all the lights on a single circuit are having the issue.

Sounds like a bad ground...did you bump or move any wires?

Each light has its own switch. There is no master switch to control them all and no dimmer switch(s).

But they probably share a common ground wire...

Pull down a dim light and read the voltage. That's where to start.

You need to see what voltage is being supplied to the light. Test several to compare. Use a multi meter set to VDC (volts direct current).
