Walls lights after decorating

Postby christine1963 » Fri Jul 09, 2010 10:54 am

We recently decorated our lounge before which we removed our wall lights, but since putting them back and after several checks to ensure they are wired the same way, they still don't work. Bulbs have been checked in other fittings are ok. We have also checked the switch, at skirting board level to ensure that doesn't have a loose wire. Any suggestions where to look next please? Should we buy new fittings?
