I had a switch that had previously just been called “ceiling.” But then i noticed the new dimmer switch for the overhead light no longer worked.
The dimmer switch flashed green.
Light switch stopped working then started again. The lights first go off, then come on again. Also, you’ll have more than one separate light circuit in a house. I thought the old switch had just died, so i switched it with another switch from another room.
So my bedroom light switch stopped working. A good way to check that your ballast is the culprit is to turn on a voltage detector and hold it next to the wires supplying power to the ballast. I replaced the bulbs but that still didn’t work.
Does anyone know what might be the problem also the tail lights and brake lights used to work but stopped and then they started working again 3 weeks later and then stopped again after a couple hours. Dimmer has stopped working after changing a light. For about a week, neither switch was working and lights just stayed off.
Discussion in 'electrics uk' started by dominoman, 15 mar 2015. When we turned the power back on, we figured there was no way to “test” it. When we pulled the dead switch, it had a red, black, and white wire on 3 separate screws.
Wipers are not working inspection. What might be the problem here? The hot contact plate at the center of the light socket and that normally springs back out when removing a light bulb may have lost its stiffness, preventing a positive contact with the end of the light bulb and causing it to flicker.
Could it just be a fluke, and two switches died in the same spot on the same day, or is there. The problem you are describing likely stems from an intermittent electrical fault in the wiper circuit. Power back on, test light.
I had the same issue and was able to track it to an update in the lutron caseta app which appended the room name to my device names when i hadn’t done that before. Then, as inexplicably as it started, it stopped. The light fixture has stopped working.
My dining room light fixture worked fine then it stopped working. Flick the power back on at the main service panel and test the light switch again, this type of diy requires only basic tools and ensuring the power is turned off from the outlet will avoid injury. If you remove light fitting 3 then lights 4 and 5 will no longer work.
It seemed to do the trick. The outside switch replaced easily and works fine. I even tried replacing the light but that did not work either so i gave up.
If light still off and no power at connector block, then you’ve lost live to switch. Usually upstairs and downstairs, but not always. Page 1 of 2 1 2 next > dominoman.
A helpful tool to invest in. If light on, faulty switch. Light switch suddenly stopped working.
The light switch has stopped working. Depends if you know cable runs as where to tackle next. You might take your wiper motor off and see if autozone or oreillys can test it for you.
You should have a fuse in the panel for the wipers, check that first then it is a toss up. Before attempting to fix any problems with your light switch or light sockets, remember to turn the breaker off first to avoid electrocuting or burning yourself. A corroded contactor inside the switch could cause the flicker but would also probably cause the switch to feel warm at the touch.

Knowing how to fix a ceiling light which has stopped working will save money spent on repairs and give the homeowner a sense of satisfaction. The main thing she needs to remember is to turn the electricity off before disconnecting the light fixture. So we put in a three way switch to replace it.
Got it to work… had to rename the light in the alexa app, then change it back… now working. It can be the motor for the wiper, but it is controlled by the switch on the turn stalk. The turn signals work great but neither tail light or brake light works.
The dimmer switch flashed green for a couple of seconds and then back to white and now it has no lights on whatsoever. In an older house all sorts of weird wiring may have been done. I was puzzled so i checked the power by my power stick which says there was no power.
Remove 2 wires going to switch and join them together in a strip connector. Then my daughter used the hair drier and blew the breaker. My naps worked, i got 8 hours some nights, and i was like, “wow, this is what it’s like to not be exhausted all the time!
The windshield wiper system uses a small electric motor to move the wiper arms that you see on the windshield. I was functioning at 40% thinking i was at 80%. The thing was, i didn’t realize during it how exhausted i was.
Then i came back later and tried to turn on the light again. Note that these are dimmable lights and that there are a lot of light switches in the house so it is possible the circuit is tied into something else. Wipers quit working then started again and finally.
Once you replace the bulb, listen to see if that has stopped the buzzing, if it hasn’t, it’s probably time to.
