Three light fixture only one light works
Quickly after moving into my newly built home my bathroom light fixture (2 lights) stopped working well, only one light would stay on consistently. We changed out the fixture with at three light fixture. At first, all lights worked correctly, now only one works. Interestingly, the same light worked on the previous fixture. Any ideas?

I know it sounds simple but have you installed known good lamps (bulbs)?

On the new fixture, did you have 3 sets of leads (in the fixture) to connect or was there only 1 with the connection to the other lamps elsewhere within the fixture?

Basically, make sure all connections are good (be sure power is off first). If you are handy, you might try to remove a lamp socket to be sure the connections there are tight.

then, do you have anything to check voltage with? We can walk through some checks if you do but depending on what type of tester/meter you have, there are a few different checks.
