Basement Lights misbehaving...

Posted 03-07-2015 at 07:38 AM by Afrum

So, my basement lights are going out intermittently...There's no fuse that's blowing, and then about 5 minutes later, they come back on for a random amount of time, then back out...I searched high and low throughout my house and couldn't determine a power source causing the issue.
