Blown Light Circuit - HELP!

Dear All,

I returned home from work this evening to find the upstairs lights not working. The fuse had blown and I have replaced the fuse wire but the lights are still not working... Any suggestions??

Thank you!

Blown Light Circuit - HELP!

Are you sure the new fuse is good?

If you heard the fuse blow when you screwed it in, unplug everything in the area affected, turn off all lights and try another fuse.

If it blows again, call someone.

If it doesn't blow, start plugging in everything and turning on the light switches to see what is causing the failure.

That's all I got.
