The light fixture stopped working.

It's not the breaker. It's not the light fixture - we tried a new one.

Try installing a new switch if you haven't already. If you have make sure the wiring is correct and if all seems fine turn the breaker off and make sure its "hard" to reset, if not it's most likely the breaker... Unless you have a rat problem

Replaced ceiling light fixture because ceiling fan and lights stop working but now the new fixture not working? there is power to the ceiling light fixture? what is wrong?


With the power off, make sure the connections are correct and tight. Check the fuse/circuit breaker and switch in that order.

Why wont ceiling lights work after blown fuse when all other sockets/lights in the room work?


If turning on the lights caused such a huge surge of power that it flipped the breaker, it could have been enough current to fry the hot wire (the one electricity flows into the fixture from) leading from the source to the fixture, or to blow the contact point where it connects to the fixture. This is even more likely if the fixture is old and doesn't have a green grounding wire to dissipate excess current, or if your wiring is prone to weakening from age or animals chewing on it.

If this is the case, you should flip the breaker to the off position and call an electrician immediately, since the hot wire will still be live up to the point of the break. A live wire floating around in your ceiling is a major (and I mean major) fire hazard.

How do I stop my hunter's ceiling fan from causing the breaker to trip?


Is it a new installation? Your ceiling fan should never trip a breaker unless it has a problem in the fan or light fixture attached to it.

Do me a favor, prior to reading on any further; did you try pulling (or turning) on the fan chain? As simple as this sounds, I've experienced this before. And I'd rather you try the simple solution first, before opening up the fixture. Okay, if that didn't work - the first TURN OFF the light switch or circuit breaker before working on these fixture's. If you're not well schooled in doing electrical work, I'd advise turning the circuit breaker off along with the wall switch. Now, when you open up your fixture, the black wire should be hooked up to the fan motor(s) lead wire; and the blue wire to your light(s) lead wire. Now, if both your fan and light were working before, then the wires at the fixture (black/motor and blue/light) were wired together. If so, then it could've blown both motor(s)? But I don't believe it did. Now that you've checked everything out, and your ready to turn the fixture back on. Keep the wall switch in the off position. Then go turn on your circuit breaker. If everything holds, then turn the wall switch on. It's done in this manner for safety reason's. Try this, and then let me know how it went. You should be good to go. Good Luck, and feel free to contact me again if you have any problems. Jim

Wire connection from lighting ballast


What you do is cut the wires from the old ballast that feed to the fixture end connectors then 'wire nut' the new ballast wires to the old wires.
