Electrician Help Needed
I have three rooms in a row that the lights do no work. There are no breakers tripped, and I have checked every GFCI I can find and all are good. Every outlet has power. Just over-head lights not working. What am I missing?

Did you check for power at the switch?

Forgive me because I am an electrical idiot and I am typing in darkness. Do you mean take off the light switch plate and test it there in all 3 rooms?

Yep, there should be power to one side of the switch. If not the problem is up stream. Power is usually chained through boxes and switches so it may be one switch or plug is bad causing the others down stream to lose power. BTW I am no electrician but I have ran a few lines in my time, and fixed enough weekend electricians work to be dangerous.

Frank, do these rooms have dimmer switches?

Did you check for Rabbits in the attic??

As Bill has stated check your power at the switch First. Next check your connections at the fixture, and in the fixture box. In some houses the feed that goes to the switch comes out of the fixture box. Might be a loose connection. Lee
