When i plug my vacuum in the bedroom and i try to turn it on, instead of the vacuum to turn on the light on the room turns on and the vacuum reemains off. It seems the vacuum switch becomes the swittch for the ligh. any ideas why?

Did you do some wiring changes or additions of your own in the bedroom or nearby recently? A wiring mistake could cause this problem.

Most common cause of this issue is someone trying to install a new receptacle below a light switch that is a switch loop.
