Basement Lights misbehaving...

Posted 03-07-2015 at 08:38 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. During Christmas time, lights plugged into an outlet above the basement stairs was preventing the lights from turning on at all, and now this on/off at random times issues....Any insight to a possible cause would be appreciated!!...

I was born in New York City, and grew up in the borough of Queens. My father was a boxspring maker, so I was exposed pretty early in life to use of hand tools like saws, hammers, and various devices to cut foam. My father was a rough carpenter, so I saw lots of cutting and hammering, but not much in the realm of fine carpentry.

When I got to college, like most students I was pretty broke most of the time, but by my junior year I had a cranky old...
