I don’t know if this belongs here, in The Barn House, or MPSIMS, but I hope one of you can help me, as it’s perplexing.
Recently the overhead light fixture in our office began to hesitate before coming on when we flipped the switch. Then it stopped coming on entirely.
First I checked the circuit breakers: none of them had been tripped.
I replaced the bulbs: no joy.
Then I went to Home Depot and bought a new fixture and replaced the old one with it. Nothing. There was no ground wire, but there had never been a ground wire, so I don’t think that could be the problem. All the other wires attached normally, color for color.
Next I climbed up into the attic and examined the wires at and near the junction from the other side. I couldn’t find any problems…no parts, no wires chewed by vermin…nothing.
Every other electrical feature of the room is still working.
Any ideas, folks? Thanks!
