Electrical Question from Tina about Light Switch Wiring
Question: I just put up a new light fixture. The light switch was off, I put the new bulb in and light was on. Is the switch not working or could there be something in the light itself? Last fixture worked with switch, I also installed that fixture, last time I turned on the switch with old fixture it worked, any ideas?
Thanks for your electrical question Tina. It would be very rare that a switch would fail in the “ON” position , but remotely possible. How many wires were up in the ceiling fixture box? Were there two or more?
