Electrical Question from Cheryl about Troubleshooting
Received from Cheryl a Homeowner in Arrington, VA
[ad#block]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.
