Electrical Switch Question:

I have a problem with my light switch. It sparked every time I switch it on and off.

After turning off and then on the main service switch my refrigerator and lights did not turn back on. I was wondering what the problem was.
Thanks, Sam

Hi Sam - Great Electrical Repair Question!
This sounds like a problem at the light fixture, the wires leading to the fixture or at the light switch box.

A process of elimination will discover the cause.

Do-it-yourself electrical switches projects can be rewarding, but please be careful!

Always make sure the circuit is off. NEVER work on live electrical circuits.

For best results contact a Licensed Electrical Contractor
