Recessed Lighting
 
I built a new house and did the wiring myself. I installed alot of 6" can lights throughout the house. Before drywall I tested most of them but forgot to test the kitchen area which has no attic access....problem! 3-cans lit up , 3-did not....I believe I did jumper all of them together what might be wrong is I missed a wire in the box. Problem....do the can lights dissasemble from below? I have no attic access to get to the cans junction box from above...Help!

Yes. The cans are made to dissasemble from below. Not he easiest thing to do. Do you have space above the cans? They will have to pushed up into the space to allow you to get to the j box. I would start at the last one that light, check that connection, retest the lights and then go to next one. The good news is it will be one of the two, maybe.
Good Luck
