Why Bathroom Light Fixtures May Not Work


By Dave Rongey - Summary:

How to Get Your Bathroom Lights Working – Start with the obvious, the light bulbs, then the light switch should be checked for power coming in and leaving up to the light fixtures, next this calls for some troubleshooting.

Troubleshooting a Bathroom Light Fixture

Electrical Question: I have 2 bathrooms with no lights working. Each has 8 bulb light fixtures with no power on the strip for the lights. The exhaust fans work fine and the electrical outlets work fine. No circuit breakers are tripped off. All the other lights and fixtures in house and garage are working fine. Just no bathroom lights. The lights worked this morning but I returned from work and they are out.
This electrical repair question came from: Tommy, a Homeowner from Las Vegas, Nevada.
