Some lights not working in our new house


Postby longstop » Thu Jun 12, 2008 3:31 pm

Hi All

This is my first post on these forums, so bear with me please! We moved into a new house this week but the lights in the kitchen and the conservatory appear not to work. All the other lights and sockets in the house seem to be okay. Is this likely to be a loose connection somewhere or something more serious? I'm planning on removing the fuse and checking all the connections this weekend, but is there anything else I should try before calling an electrician?

Thanks

As u say check fuse and connections OBSERVING SAFE ISOLATION PROCEEDURE . TURN OFF POWER while checking.
If no joy call in your electrician.
