light switch not working


My light switch stopped working. Recently changed light bulbs, worked for about 4 days. Checked the circuit break box, everything fine. Bought an electrical meter and am getting no reading from wires. Any idea?

light switch not working


are all the receptacles in the room working? If the light switch is not getting power there could be an open somewhere in the line. I would try to trace where it gets power from and see if there is an outage further up the line. Maybe the wire popped loose from a receptacle up the line.
