However, there might be some issues that you can face on Insteon Hub like any other device. One such most commonly faced issue is having no light on your Insteon hub. If you are having this problem, here is how you can fix it.
Insteon Hub No Light
1. Check for functioning
The first thing you need to check if you have the Insteon hub that is not showing any light is to check if it is functioning at all. Sometimes the issue might be only with the bulb and you can still use it. If you are able to connect the device with your Insteon hub and it is working fine, that is a sigh of relief for you. This means that your bulb might have got bad or not working for some reason and this should be an easy fix. Also, you can try restarting it and the bulb will be back for you.
If restarting does not work for you, all you need to do is take it to a warranty center and they will be able to replace the bulb for you. The good news is that it doesn’t have to be urgent and you can use it until you got time to have it fixed.
- If not functioning
If your light is off, and you are not able to connect with the Insteon hub, that means it is not working at all, and here are a few things that you would need to check.
2. Check for the power chord and try re-plugging it
You will need to check your power chord and adapter first. To start with, check if your power chord is plugged right inside your wall outlet and not hanging loose. You can also check if the wall outlet is functional by plugging some other appliance in the outlet.
If that works out well, you need to just unplug it from the wall outlet, let it sit for a while, and plug it back in again. In most cases, it would start working right away and you won’t have to face much hassle getting it fixed.
3. Get it to a technician
Most users who have faced this problem that their Intenson hub stopped responding have faced the problem with the C7 capacitor. It is a technical issue that we would not recommend you to try fixing at home. If the hub is under warranty, you can take it to a warranty center to get it fixed for free. If not, you can try a suggested technician who will be able to install this easy fix for you.
