Hello everyone- first post here. Just bought a house and moved in last week, starting to fix up some of the issues around the house that the last owner neglected and ran into an issue I'm hoping you guys can help me with.
I was swapping out a bunch of light switches yesterday from ones with dimmers to regular switches. Came across a switch in the kitchen that seems to be completely dead- no voltage across any of the lines.
Which is weird because just a few days ago, when I turned on the light (back when it was still a dimmer switch), the bulb briefly flicked on before burning out (almost like a short out).
I checked my breaker box downstairs and none of the breakers are popped.
Do you guys think I have a burnt out line inside the wall or at the ceiling light fixture?
Also––- don't know if this is related or not- the switch in question is in the kitchen; all the other fixtures and wall outlets in the kitchen are working just fine. But there is a utility room leading from the kitchen close to the faulty switch/ceiling light that's got another ceiling light that's no longer working.
The light in that utility room was working as of yesterday afternoon- after the light burnout, but before I pulled the original light switch...
