Standard bathrooom configuration: overhead light and fan both operated
by a standard light switch (2 switches: top switch for light, bottom
switch for fan) that sits flush against the wall.
The fan works fine, but the overhead light does not work. It used to
work for a awhile, but now never works.
1. I changed the light bulb ~ still no light
2. removed the entire light fixture, and tested it to see if it works
~ works fine.
3. I reconnected the the connections from the light to the wires ~
still no light
4. I removed the light switch to check the wiring, but i'm not sure
what's right and what's wrong: in short, there are 2 screws on each
side of the switch; 2 red lines both connect to the bottom 2 screws,
and 1 black line connects to the top screw on one side. I moved the
bottom red wire to the top screw to test and see if the light worked,
but still no light. I also checked to make sure the red line
terminating with another wire (assuming it goes up to the light
fixture) was well connected and there wasn't a problem.
Does anyone have any insight to the problem, or have a suggestion of
something else i can test?
Thanks so much for your help.
