    I have a bathroom with three light fixtures on the same breaker. The fixture farthest from the breaker, which has its own switch, is working. The two closest to the breaker, which are on two switches on the same switchplate, do not work. They stopped recently, at the same time. I have removed...

    Maybe a dumb question, but I'm doing my own wiring for a custom Sprinter Van build. I'm wondering if I can have a switch in the middle of a circuit of LED lights. So basically, it would be + 12v Battery -> LED lights -> 2 way Switch -> LED lights -> - Battery/Ground. I'd really appreciate any...

    I need to get my asphalt driveway repaved and new brick wall and lighted brick columns due to a drunk driver. The lights on the top of the brick columns were underperforming solar lights. I'd like to upgrade to low voltage lights but also maybe have a 110 outlet in one of the columns for...

    Hi. I am trying to understand why our kitchen lights don't work. I'm in NZ on 240V/60hz, and I am not skilled. There is 7v incoming power registering on the multimeter at the main switch. (The lights have a double switch - one at each end of the room) The other switch has 0V, so is receiving...

I recently posted about an issue with one of them which would turn on for only 5 seconds and then turn off. I ended up replacing that unit with an identical one which worked perfectly for...

    Hi all, I wanted to brighten up my relatively dim bathroom and thought to put up a vanity light bar. That particular vanity bar is meant to be hard-wired, but I don't have the tools, knowledge, or permission (I'm a renter) to do that. So I thought it would be easier to buy a lamp cord with a...
