Lights not working but sockets are
i have an old fusebox in the cellar, last week all my lights , upstairs and downstairs stopped working. I put new fusewire ( 5 amp) in and immediately the cellar light came on also the living room light came on but not the kitchen or the bedroom and bathroom.a week later (19-9-19) about 8 0 clock in the evening my lights came on but only for about 30 seconds then went off again, What could be causing this?

Sounds like a lose connection somewhere. Time to call in the experts and while you are talking to them all then about changing your fuse board.

I would suggest a full inspection of your wiring and fuse board to establish your issue

Hi your lights have blown the loose connection and probable cause of the fault will be at the last light working lounge possible need to be there to confirm this you definitely need an electrician to resolve this for you and time for an upgrade on your fuse box also r c d protection is a must hope this helps
