Light dimming in bathroom


IN the bathroom, the light will randomly dim and then return to normal. I would like to fix this, but I am not entirely sure what the cause would be. I appreciate any insight.

Light dimming in bathroom


What is the description of the light fixture in the bathroom? How many lamps and what type/wattage?

Are all of the lamps dimming or just one? Do you notice this elsewhere in the house? Could this be coinciding with a large load kicking on (AC, refrigerator, etc.)?

Light dimming in bathroom


Only one light dims and it is an overhead fixture, but I am not entirely sure what the amp rating is off the top of my head. The light is on a separate circuit from the AC and refrigerator and is located on a separate floor of the house. I can see if there is any relation tonight.

Have to ask... have you tried all new lamps (bulbs)?

A bad connection at the light, assuming you have no other symptoms in the house: the default fix is to redo the wire nut connections.
