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.
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.
