Light fixtures

About 350,000 Cooper Lighting All-Pro and Defiant solar-and-battery powered and motion-activated outdoor LED light fixtures.

They were sold at Home Depot, Lowe's and other stores nationwide from September 2015-July 2018.

The model number is displayed on the interior of the fixture. The Defiant MST1000LWDF, All-Pro MST800L and All-Pro MST800LW all have two light sources on top of a housing with a round motion sensor on the bottom of that housing. The All-Pro WPS2040M has a flat housing with the LED light source in the center of the housing and an integrated motion sensor lens and dimmer above the motion sensor. All the light fixtures are connected by wire to a solar panel. 

The batteries in the solar-powered fixtures can overheat and cause the housing to melt, posing a fire hazard. Cooper Lighting has received at least seven reports of overheating and property damage. No injuries have been reported.

Consumers should stop using the fixtures and contact the Eaton Customer Service Center for a free replacement battery pack.

The company will repair the defective containers, which were sold at Costco and Williams-Sonoma stores nationwide and online from April 2017-July 2018.
