Electrical Question from Chris about Ceiling Fan Wiring
Background: Chris, a Handywoman from Tallahassee, FL
Question: I replaced a light fixture with a ceiling fan and light kit. The ceiling fan works fine, but the light kit only worked for an hour then switched off. I used the bulbs included in the kit so the wattage of 190 watts wasn’t exceeded. I disconnected and then reconnected the light kit and it turned on again but am afraid this will happen again. Any ideas about what to do?

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.
