A dangerous reason not to ignore flickering lights


Kitchen ceiling light has been flickering for several months, and luckily the breaker tripped last night telling me it was definately time to check into this. I figured the aluminum wiring was at fault and sure enough check out these pics. I used Alumicons to fix this up as I have with other fixtures and outlets in the past few months. Almost done with the entire house thank God!

Ah yes Alumicons that was the name I was trying to think of in another thread. We should probably come up with a good sticky for aluminum wiring at some point. It comes up often enough.
