Electrical Question from Jim about Light Switch Wiring
Question: I have a property light mounted over my garage door. I was hosing off the garage and sprayed the light and heard a pop sound. I checked the breakers and also replaced the bulb. The light no longer comes on at dusk??
Thanks for your electrical question.
Jim it sounds like you hosed the circuitry inside your light fixture dusk to dawn module. You need a new fixture! This can also happen to Motion Detector Fixtures.
Spraying ANY Electrical Device with Water is EXTREMELY Dangerous, Even GFCI Protected Devices.

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.
