Lighting Problem - please help......

Postby stevenbraid » Sun Mar 08, 2009 4:45 pm


when turing on a 2way dimmer switch all the lights in my flat went out. when inspecting the fuse (fuse wire) in the box i found it to be blown. i replaced the fuse wire but the lights still wont go on. should i investigate the switch next? would a problem with that one switch result in all lights not working or does it depend on the way they have been wired?

any advise please

If you are saying that all the lights are still off then the best guess is that either you have not replaced the wire correctly or it has blown again.
