'lights' circuit not working

When turning on the kitchen light this evening all of my other lights went out. All other circuits are fine. Just every roof light not working. Thus has happened twice in 3 years and every time I just replace the fuse wire and problem solved. However when doing that this time the fuse is still in tact. Also when I put the fuse back in I usually get a small spark but this time it's completely dead.

Can anyone suggest what the problem may be that I could fix?

That's a tricky one without further info tbh. Are the "roof" lights recessed into the ceiling?

It's possible they are low voltage and have a central transformer which is knackered.

A good Spark will give you sound advice and a free quote.

Hope this helps..

Hi graykev, I would suggest a consumer unit/fuse board upgrade along with testing. Use a member of a competent scheme I.e. Niceic approved electrician and make sure you get a certificate.
