I have a light switch in my garage that has blown out twice in the last few months. This light switch turns on a light that also has an outlet in the base of the light that is not controlled by the switch. The outlet constantly works, but the light does not work once the switch is blown. I was unaware switches could stop working in that manner, but now two have stopped working in a short period of time. Is there possibly a grounding issue?
If you have any information as why this would occur, please help! I don't mind paying $1.00 for a new switch, but I have a feeling there is a different problem here.
