Common Light Switch Problems
If you have a broken light switch, the chances are good that your problem lies in one of the categories listed below. We’ll troubleshoot the issue and let you know exactly what has gone wrong.
- Your fuse is burnt out or your circuit breaker has tripped. When your light switch won’t work, check your fuses or circuit breakers first. If one of these has burnt out or tripped, then the lights won’t turn on even if you replace the entire switch. You can usually check this for yourself, before you even call us out.
- Loose wires. If your light switch seems to work sometimes but not others, or if the lights flicker but don’t turn on all the way, you may have loose wires underneath the faceplate. This problem is best resolved by a professional, as you should never deal with live wires by yourself.
- Broken switch mechanism. If you flip the light back and forth and nothing happens at all, there’s a good chance that the switch mechanism is broken. These do wear out over time, so this is a common issue. Unless you have replaced broken switches before, it’s always good to get an electrician to do it so you don’t end up with loose wires and other problems.
Whether the issue with your light switch is one of these or is something else, we’ll find the problem and fix it as fast as we can, because we know that you need to use your lights!
Light Switch Installation
Sometimes, your light switches are in the way. You may need to put a piece of furniture over the switch, or maybe you want to hang a picture or a shelf there. Either way, we can help you move the switch.
Other times, switches end up in inconvenient places. If this is true in your home, we’ll help you relocate your switches so they are intuitively placed and easier for you to use. Some people even choose to relocate switches so their children can (or cannot) reach them all by themselves.
No matter the reason for your switch installation, we’ll make sure that it gets done safely and that all work is up to code. In fact, we won’t leave until you’re completely satisfied with your new light switch!
