Turn on ceiling light, other lights go off


Postby mike88 » Sat Jul 28, 2007 1:47 pm

I have had extra lights fitted under cabinets in kitchen. Electrician (who is now on long holiday) took power from lighting circuit. I've just noticed that the new lights only work when the ceiling lights are turned off. Turn on the ceiling lights and the cabinet lights go off! Do you know what sort of mistake can cause this? Am I in for serious rework of the wiring?

Is a one way light switch which is why I don't understand. You're right - I need to get the electrician back.
