If it is an in-line switch, a switch located between the plug and light, usually interwoven in a chain, it can be replaced. If you are handy, you might be able to fix the switch you have. There is not much to them. Perhaps screws holding it together have come loose and created a short. UNPLUG IT and look the switch over. Usually held together by two screws.

I understand that the black and blue wire can be connected to the black wire in my ceiling. ok fair enough. However, in my new bedroom, there is 2 switches on the wall that apparently control two black...


A ceiling fan requires a neutral wire (white), a ground wire (green), a hot wire for the fan (black), and on fans with light kits a hot wire for the lights (blue). These examples will assume that a lighting kit is going to be used, but if it is not terminations to the blue wire are not required and the circuit is greatly simplified The ceiling fan and light can also be wired through switches. When a single switch is used to connect to the ceiling fan and light the ceiling fan (black) and light (blue) would both be connected to the switched black wire. In this configuration turning the switch on would power both the light and ceiling fan. In order to turn just one off, the pull strings would have to be used. The problem with this approach, is that when the pull strings have been used to turn the light or ceiling fan off, turning the switch back on will not work until the pull string is pulled again .
The ceiling fan and light can also be wired through two switches. This would generally be two separate switches, one for the fan and one for the light. This would generally be a 3 conductor w/ground coming from the switch box. The ceiling fan (black) wire would connect to the switched black wire from the ceiling fan switch, the light wire (blue) would connect to the switched red wire from the light switch and the neutral (white) and ground (bare) would connect to the their associated wires..

You said pendant lights blew out.
How many total watts were those lights?
Did you remove aluminum break-away fins on side of device to match wattage?

Front indicator can be pulled out to cut power to circuit.
This is called FASS switch.
Try pulling out FASS switch and then pushing it back to see if it re-sets device.
Click breaker on-off to see if it resets device.
You replaced a single-pole switch that has two wires plug ground wire.
Each wire from switch goes to either screw on MAW-600 so it's hard to go wrong there.
Bare copper goes to green ground screw.
Otherwise, it looks like tech support is next step: 1800-523-9466

Installing pendant lights in series.


Chances are you're crossing the live wire directly to ground. Do you have 3 wires for hookup? If you do, 1 is live, and 2 are grounds. I would try every combination. If it doesn't work in any of those connections, the strip may be defective.

Hello,
Many times with very old wiring the wire can break inside the coating and not be visible. To check for sure what has happened you will need an electric tester. You will need to check for 120 volts acros the two wires with the switch on. If there is no power, then check at the switch. If there is power there then the wire is broken.
Replacement of the old wires in an old house is very difficult and you will probably want to hire a professional to do that.

I currently have ceiling roses and pendants but most of nice lights are flush fitting. Is there any way of fitting these without pulling floor boards up!


Flush fittings can be used in place of pendants/ you need to make sure there is space above fitting for it to Breath, also you can buy Fireproof hoods for fittings that a good idea if using low voltage lighting as it produces a fair bit of heat,When you remove pendant you will see the wiring, always ensure all screws are tight avoiding loose connections and of course kill power before starting..good luck
