If you are looking for the atmosphere, a nice Black Light Bulb would be very satisfying.

Hopefully this is helpful for you.

Our ceiling was painted and when they replaced our Lightolier track lighting, one of three lights does not work. We tested bulb and it is good. Another light on the same track also works. Please advis


If it is track lighting and the fixtures were taking off of it and it was working before check to see if there is a switch on the fixture may have gotten turned off or possibly the fixture is turned the wrong way on the track or may be not getting a good connection on the track if you are turning the fixture the right way it should go on easy . Hope this helps

We have Lithonia 2 bulb fixtures in a recessed ceiling. We currently have 2 (25) watt bulbs in them. What wattage can I upgrade to ??


The ballast inside the fixture is rated to operate 2 25w bulbs. You can't put higher wattage bulbs in this fixture, unless you change the ballast. Sorry.

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 can i prevent my bathroom ceiling paint from peeling off


One of the main reasons for the breakdown of paints in bathrooms, is of course moisture. Do you have a fan/ventilation system, (not just a recycling air filter,) that can be turned on when you bathe or shower? This would help. Also, a better type of finish would be an eggshell or satin finish type paint. The moisture cannot gather to the same extent on this type of finish.

How to wire this fan


The wiring on most paddle / ceiling fans id such:

White = Fan and Light neutral or "common"
Black = Fan line voltage or "hot"
Blue = Light line voltage or "hot"
Green = safety ground

If you are replacing an existing light fixture - be sure to replace the ceiling box with one designed for use with a fan - as per electrical code. If the existing box had only 2 wires (or 3 counting the ground) that connected to the old light fixture and it was controlled from a wall switch, the wiring would be fixture white to ceiling white, fixture black and fixture blue to ceiling black (or red) and fixture green to ceiling bare ground or connected to the metal box. This would power both the fan and light whenever the wall switch was on and the pull chains for each were also on. This is also the preferred wiring for replacement of a pull chain type light fixture (no wall switch present).

If there are other wires in the box that previously were not connected to the old light fixture, using a meter or tester - determine if there is constant power between the ceiling white wire and any of the these other wires (test with the wall switch on and off to be sure). If you do have constant power available, you might consider using the wall switch to control only the light, and using the pull chain to operate the fan (or vice-versa). Simply connect the black (for fan) or the blue (for light) to the "constant power on" wire and that part of the fixture will work by pull chain only - regardless of the wall switch position. If the fan can be shut off by the wall switch, it is very important that the wall switch remain a toggle (or on / off switch), do NOT replace with a dimmer type switch.

If you'd prefer to operate the fan and light completely independently of each other - you can purchase a 3rd party fan & light remote control device for between $30 - $50.

I hope this helps and good luck! Please rate my reply. Thanks!

PIPE TO SHOWER HEAD IS SEIZED ANY SUGGESTIONS FOR GETTING IT OUT


Good Afternoon, GWBreish:

If the 'seize' is from hard water (white or green deposits on the fixture) a towel or sponge soaked in vinegar or CLR van be tied or velcro bagged onto the fixture for 15 to 30 minutes, then the residue attacked with a scrubber or steel wool pad. If the seize in inside the fixture, you will have unscrew the face plats and paint or swab CLR or vinegar to the meshed parts of the handle.

How far from the shower head do recessed lights have to be fitted


552.54 Luminaires.
((B) Shower Luminaires. If a luminaire is provided over a bathtub or in a shower stall, it shall be of the enclosed and gasketed type and listed for the type of installation, and it shall be ground-fault circuit-interrupter protected.
The switch for shower luminaires and exhaust fans, located over a tub or in a shower stall, shall be located outside the tub or shower space.

Essentially there is no distance specified BUT the fixture must be sealed AND protected with a GFCI
