Hi .. if the lamps are discolored dark on the ends, then they should be replaced. The other replaceable part is the ballast. But it may be the same cost to replace the whole fixture as to replace the ballast.

I have a mini cooper 2003 and none of my brake lights work.i thought it might be brake light switch but when i put a wire across the connector lights still wont come on. fuse ok

Have you checked for power with a multimeter at the switch ? I'm going to say the didn't say if you checked the bulbs ?
All being well there...find the grounding spur and check that is sound and that all wiring plugs are secure and not fouled up.

I have Hunter ceiling fan / light. I installed it. It worked fine for a little while, than one bulb blew out, then a second bulb blew out, now none work. Yes I repaced all the bulbs, still don't w

I would check with a voltmeter if you can safely to verify power at the light socket using an adapter to a plug in it. If you can not do that, with power off you may want to make sure that the socket contacts are good and clean. Sometimes they can become tarnished badly.

A light circuit doesn't work (no lights on) with good bulbs. Circuit has 4 switches, no outlets. The breaker does not trip (swapped breaker, no change). At each switch ,115 VAC across switch terminals,...

If I understand correctly you have a circuit with 4 light switches.
None of the 4 switches work, yet all 4 test for 115Vac.

Test each screw on switch to bare ground to get reading.

This problem could be loose neutral wire inside the switch boxes or anywhere along the line, or inside breaker box. Check white wires.
All 4 switches connect back to breaker box on white neutral wire that connects to neutral busbar inside breaker box.

My upstair room light is stop working. Changed bulb, switch and bulb holder. But still no luck. What else I should do before call the an electrician. - Mahen

Hi there,  Have you checked to see if you have power getting to your switch? You could've tripped a circuit breaker, so I would check your electrical first to rule that out. Once you've checked for power, put your switch in the OFF position. Next, take off the light from the ceiling...leaving just the two wire's hanging down and apart from each other. If you have a voltage tester/meter, then you'd want to turn the switch ON again - then check to see if you're getting power (voltage), as well as, a complete circuit. If so, great! If not, contact me again and I'll help you further. But I believe you'll have found the problem already after following the above steps. Make sure to secure each connection when putting your light back up onto the ceiling. And, DON'T turn the switch back on until your light is securely mounted. Good Luck with this, and feel free to contact me again if this doesn't work. - Jim

Lights flicker on ceiling fan: We have 4 cfl bulbs in a ceiling fan light fixture that have recently started to flicker. They've been there for a while without the problem, so it's not a matter of a new...

It is not a ceiling fan or wiring problem. It is your bulbs. Normal CFL bulbs do not work in dimmers or with remotes. Remotes work on RF signals and cause interference with the bulbs. You may also notice a buzzing sound and the lights may not go out when you turn off the switch. It is a fire hazard, can invalidate your warranty on the bulbs and will shorten their life. Try changing the bulbs to the new dimmable CFL's and see if it helps. It should eliminate your problem altogether.

Light does not come on in the ceiling fan

"from the ceiling fan we have black, blue, and white. On the mounting bracket is green. We installed black and blue from the fan motor to the black in the ceiling."

If your fan is working and the light isn't and they are tied to the same wire (black wire), then you might have a bad pull chain switch or bulb.

We have a couple of Hampton Bay ceiling fans. In one of them - one of the 4 lights doesn't work. In the other - several of the bulbs frequently make a static noise and have to be adjusted.

It could be one of two thing, the most difficult would be if the socket needs to be replaced, but not likely if the fans are on the newer side. The most likely problem is a little metal flap in the socket that tip of the light bulb connects with when you screw it in. To fix this turn off the power the get a straight edge screwdriver and pry that piece of metal back up. If none of this works I would check all wire connections in your fan to make sure they're tight.

Question about light bulb problem in ceiling fan

Check wiring @ ceiling. Should b a black, white, green & red wire coming frm fan. Green is ground. Black & Red is power. White is neutral. Black provides power to fan, red provides lat power 4 lights. Remove light assembly, blue wire provides power. B sure 2 turn off power 2 fan b 4 working on it w/switch & breaker. Maybe lose wire connection or pinched wire grounding out. Fans require vibration proof bulbs regular bulb elements will break after short time use. Fan bulbs have larger filiments inside bulb.

It might not be the bulb but the socket (If you have incandescent sockets). Inside each socket there is a piece of metal that the bulb connects with. Check to see if it is flattened out. Turn the power off then get a flat head screwdriver and pry that piece of metal back outward. Turn the power back on and screw the bulb in slowly till the bulb lights.
