Boy, this is a funny one.
Wife turned on a hall light switch last night, big flash by one of the hall
lights, and the ckt breaker tripped.
Was about 2 days since putting in a new bulb there.
Was the el-cheapo brand picked up at CVS, and made in China.
Replaced the bulb with a GE one, and so far everything seems O.K.
Question: I can't imagine how anything, like e.g. a broken filament
perhaps, can short out the circuit.
But, perhaps ?
Can anyone think of a bulb failure mechanism that might trip the breaker ?
