Electrical Question from Cheryl about Troubleshooting
Received from Cheryl a Homeowner in Arrington, VA
Question: I have a dusk to dawn light that takes 175 watt Mercury Vapor bulb.
The light went out a week ago and I had someone replace the photo sensor and the bulb. The light lit up at dawn but was not as bright as it should have been and then the second night, it never came on at all.

The Safest Way to Test Electrical Devices and Identify Electric Wiring!The Non-Contact Electrical Tester
This is a testing tool that I have had in my personal electrical tool pouch for years, and is the first test tool I grab to help identify electrical wiring. It is a Non-contact tester, [amazon.com], I use for the detection of Standard Voltage in Cables, Cords, Circuit Breakers, Lighting Fixtures, Switches, Outlets and Wires. Simply insert the end of the tester into an outlet, lamp socket, or hold the end of the tester against the wire you wish to test. Very handy and easy to use.
