Three lights suddenly won't work

I have 6 ceiling lights upstairs. The other day the landing light stopped working and I found two bedroom lights also won't switch on. I have checked all the switches and light fittings and they are OK. All the upstairs lights are on one fuse, which is OK and the other 3 lights work. I have visually inspected all the cables in the loft, though I cant get at some. Surprisingly, without touching anything the three lights started working perfectly and stopped again after 30 minutes. This has happened twice. The house was built in 1970, but the thought and costof rewiring is not an option. Please have you any ideas?

    May I also add that my neon screwdriver shows that power is reaching all the sickets and switches.

    This has nothing to do with fans. I don't know where that paragraph came from. It is dated 2007. My problem is solely 3 ceiling lights..

SOURCE: wireing a bathroom extractor fan to a three switch (fan=landing light=offswitch0

yes, if the three switches are all made together, then there is only one feed. sounds like a bad switch, or possibly bad exhaust fan. check voltage at fan with switch on, if not qualified, be careful, or call an electrician

The light on the remote is a battery light. First mistake was buying a store brand fan which are mostly low-end parts. Try adding a different remote w/receiver.

My upstairs lights are not all working

You have an intermittant connection. This can be anywhere in the circuit - including white neutrals. It can be hard to find because it is intermittant. You may have luck tapping on or around switches, fixtures and outlets to narrow down the location of the intermittant.

You checked the connections - or did you tighten the connections? There's a difference! Every building is subject to vibration. Over time, this vibration can cause connections and wirenuts to loosen. If the wires in the wirenuts were not pretwisted before the wirenut was placed - there may be some intemittant connections going on inside the wirenuts.

Check and TIGHTEN all connections - wirenuts, terminal screws, etc. This includes the neutral wires! Test lamps are really not very good test tools to use - that's why electricians don't use them. Your test lamp cant tell you if it is registering 50V, 120V or 240V. There is a huge difference as you can imagine. Do not overlook the outlets. it is not uncommon for an outlet to supply power not only to the next outlet - but to a nearby switch above it, too.

Get an inexpensive multimeter. It can provide you with more information that you'll ever need as a homeowner. That is much better than the questions a neon test lamp raises.

Good luck!

My Fanimation Islander FP320 stopped working, I've replaced the wall switch but fan won't spin and lights won't dim.

I have just purchased three First Alert carbon monoxide alarms. My home has a basement and bedrooms on the first and second floors. My questions stem from the installation. Should the installation...

When I worked Electrical in a Hardware store we were told by Nighthawk and f\First Alert and we told our customers that you want the detectors 4-6 feet off the floor never near a water heater or furnace since this can cause false alarms. The CO will rise, so one on each floor should be enough near a central stair if possible. Other wise make sure at least one is in the bedroom.

Ceiling fan with light and remote stopped working

It's most likely the receiver for the remote (transmitter) -- it's located under the cover at the top of the fan -- will need replacing.

Not sure if this is the exact ceiling fan/ light kit we have... but looks similar.

Turned out that it was the dimmer switch that had shorted out.

My hubby figured it out, and replaced it.
