How to Repair Lost Power to a Ceiling Light Fixture
Electrical Question: I am trying to figure out why my downstairs ceiling light went out. I have power going into the switch and power going to the light. There are 3 white wires that go into a butt connector every time I move them there’s an arc and the power goes off downstairs but when i move them back it comes back on. How do I fix the short?
