Did I burn out my chandelier?

The lights were flickering and I heard a crackling sound coming from the switch. I turned off the chandelier and changed the fuse, When I turned the light back on it wouldn't come back on. I took out the bulbs and saw that some were 40 watts and some were 60 watts. I tried to use two 25 watt bulbs but no juice! Did I ruin it ?

Motor running but no flicker effect shaft drive


If you check your owners manual it should tell you how to change bulbs etc. Are you not seeing light, or light comes on but no flicker? If you can reply with model number on your unit, perhaps we can guide you to diagnosis and repair easier.

The light in the kitchen doesn't come on. If you hold it sideways, it comes on. The fireplace doesn't come on and there is no crackling sound. Everything else works.


only problem I shared with you is the chandelier... the door, upon opening, turns the chandelier on... you'll see the switch in the hinge area of the door

I just installed a chandelier. This is a new connection. So I ran a 3 wire from the chanderlier to a new lutron slide dimmer. I then ran a 2 wire from this dimmer to the switch. When I turned the...


Lutron Dimmer manuals
http://www.lutron.com/Service-Support/Technical/InstallationInstructions/Pages/InstallationInstructions.aspx?syst=Dimmers+%26+Switches&prodn=Maestro%C2%AE+dimmer+%26+switch

Lutron manuals show a couple things that might be affecting you lights.
1) Wattage: If you have wrong wattage dimmer
2) Type of light bulb: Dimmers work on different types of bulbs
3) Wiring: You say you got 3 wires going to the chandelier? Why you got 3 wires? Is this a 3 way switch? Are the chandelier bulbs wired separately so you can control groups of bulbs with different switches?
Does the dimmer have 3 screws? A dark-colored screw and 2 brass screws? If so, then that sounds like a 3-way dimmer. A 3-way, is where more than one switch controls the same light.

Does the dimmer have 2 screws? Then that dimmer controls a single circuit. Your black Hot wire from breaker box connects to one screw and the black wire to Load connects to other screw.
A quick glance at Lutron wiring manual shows that Hot and Load wires connect to either screw.
The question is your 3-wires from the chandelier ... does the black Hot wire from breaker arrive in the ceiling box first? Or does it arrive in the wall box first? If your Hot arrives in ceiling box, then the Hot must come down to the switch box and connect to a screw on the dimmer >>> a second wire connects to other screw on dimmer and travels up to the ceiling box where it connects to black wire on chandelier. The white wire on chandelier connects to white Neutral.
4) Dimmer might be bad

While the lights are on, they flicker every 10 minutes or so


This is a common problem with that model. The EJ500C is designed only for standard incandescent lights, not chandelier bulbs, CFLs, etc. Replace it with the ST01C, and you'll be fine. Intermatic may even exchange it for you if you if you complain to them.

Speaker not working


the crackle sound is the elctric current from your ignition switch flowing into your speaker wires, if the ignition(key) already is on you dont hear it you say, so it must be that the ignitionwire at some point makes connection with your speakercable.

Faulty Circuit Breaker? If not, why the flames from the fan?


Not always. It sounds like your wiring burned up. If there is not a lot of load on the circuit it's possible for the wire to catch on fire and not trip the breaker. Breakers will only trip when the amperage exceeds their rating. If the wire is still intact and not shorting to the case it will not trip the breaker. I had the same thing happen to us on a job friday.

I would turn the breaker off, test and ensure the power is off, then remove the light that had flames shoot out of it. Chances are there is a wire in there that is blackened. If there is you can look into buying a new light kit. If you feel you can do it safely and you can get enough wire on each side of the burned part, you can try **** splicing a new piece of wire in. If the inside is all burned up the safest thing would be to replace the whole light kit or fan.

Light switch


If the previous light worked ok and you didn't touch the wall switch, you must have a faulty connection at the chandelier end, check the connections again. Is there a seperate switch on the chandelier?
