Me too but stranger things could have been going on. Yes in Europe they use fuses at the switches usually 5 amp ones that snap into small fuse blocks on the switch box. I actually forgot this (don't work much on your systems....) or would have suggested you check. Thanks for getting back and telling us what the problem was...it will help in the future.Don't know how that it explains the light working intermittently tho! I'd have thought that once a fuse has blown the light could not have worked!?
