3 light pendant: 2 lights not working- Lightbulbs are ok

Postby Dash » Fri Dec 04, 2009 10:25 pm

Here is the type of light I had a handyman install in my dining room.

Google ""

It was working fine for about 2 months and one night when I turned it on I heard a pop sound and two of the three lights went out. I bought new light bulbs, (exact same kind that were previously used) and they didn't work either. I also tried the old bulbs in the pendant light that still worked and the old bulbs worked in it. Is there any other info need to help solve this and is there anything I can try before calling an electrician?

Simply Build It

The site you direct to is 110v and 60Hz so using double the design voltage. likely one of the cables have chaffed and shorted then blown so I would think you should investigate with power off.
