Ask a tradesman


Electric light lounge, why does it reduce in power?

Why does the light reduce power? The bulb one minute full, then dims, then goes full.

Possibly a faulty dimmer switch? Possibly a loose connection? Possibly a voltage issue on the supply network? - really need more information on type of light e.g. is it a normal hanging light with a single bulbe etc? Is there a dimmer switch fitted? does it do it when first switched on or does it happen after the light has been on for a while?

It would make more sense if its spotlights with MR16 bulbs, and would suggest a transformer fault.
