Household lighting Help please!!


Postby montyd890 » Sun Aug 26, 2007 1:39 pm

Please help me, im totally lost. My landing and hall lights have both randomly stopped working? They work on a two gang switch downstairs and a single switch upstairs. I have opened up both switches and ceiling roses to check for loose wires and cant see anything obvious. The light in the hall also randomly came on last night too, but the landing light still would not work. I turned the hall light off and tried to turn it back on and it wouldnt come on.
Any information to help me would be much appreciated although not too technical in the wording please as im not an electrician. Thanks very much.

WE R ASSUMING THEN THAT ALL WIRES R STILL CONNECTED IN THIER ORINGINAL POSITIONS , WHEN U HAD NORMAL
OPERATION OF YOUR LIGHTS , YES ??
OKAY . IF REST OF LIGHTS ON CIRCUIT R WORKING THEN FUSE / MCB
IS IN SERVICE. IF U TRY YOUR SWITCHES AGAIN UP AND DOWN , AND
STILL NO JOY THEN PROBLEM COULD B WITH THESE.
AS I DETECT U R NOT FAMILIAR WITH ELECTRICITY , I ADVISE THET U
GET AN ELECTRCIAN IN AS A NUMBER OF THINGS WOULD NEED 2 B LOOKED 4 AND TESTED , BECAUSE THIS COULD B MORE THAN FAULTY
SWITCHES.
