If your outdoor light suddenly flickers or refuse to switch on or off, it could be a number of reasons. Some of them are simple, like replacing the bulb or giving the base and cover a good clean. But if you’ve done these tasks and your outdoor light is still not working, you may have to fix loose connections, faulty wiring or replace broken parts. And when it comes to jobs involving electricity, it’s best to get a Part P qualified electrician in to help.
Your electrician will check your light fixture for damage and test your wiring connections. They’ll look at the controlling switch and if necessary, replace this part. The circuit breaker powers the light switch, so they’ll make sure this hasn’t tripped. If it has, they’ll locate the problem and clear the fault. Finally, they’ll reset the circuit breaker and test your outdoor light before they go.
