Common Light Switch Wiring Problems
If you have a broken light switch or a light switch wiring problem, it can likely be traced to one of the sources listed below. We’ll troubleshoot the issue and let you know exactly what has gone wrong with your light switch.
- Your fuse is burnt out or your circuit breaker has tripped. When your light switch doesn’t work, check your fuses or circuit breakers first. If one of these has burnt out or tripped, then the lights won’t turn on even if you replace the entire switch. You can usually check this yourself, before you even call us out.
- Loose wires. If your light switch doesn’t seem to work consistently, or if the lights flicker but don’t turn on all the way, you may have loose wires underneath the faceplate. This issue is best resolved by a professional electrician, as you should never deal with live wires yourself.
- Broken switch mechanism. If you flip the light back and forth and nothing happens at all, there’s a good chance that the switch mechanism is broken. This is a fairly common issue, as switch mechanisms wear out over time. Unless you have experience replacing broken switches, we recommend getting an electrician to do it, as you could end up with loose wires or other problems.
Whether the issue with your light switch wiring is one of the ones mentioned above or it’s something else, the experts at 24-7 Electrical Services will find the problem and fix it as quickly as we can!
Light Switch Installation
Sometimes, your light switches are in the way. You may need to put a piece of furniture over the switch or maybe you want to hang a picture or a shelf where there’s already a light switch. Other times, switches are simply in inconvenient places. Some people even choose to relocate switches so their children can (or cannot) reach the by themselves.
Whatever the reason for light switch installation, we can move the light switch wiring to where you want it, so it’s intuitively placed and easy to access. If you want to add a dimmer to a light, we can handle dimmer switch installation, too!
