Do I need an electrician to replace a light switch?
A licensed electrician will ensure your light switch is installed safely and correctly. Unless you have previous electrical experience, you should always hire a licensed electrician to complete any electrical work, including installing or replacing a light switch.
How can you tell if a light switch is bad?
Some signs of a bad light switch are clear. For instance, if there is an audible snap, crackle, or pop when you flip the switch, it’s pretty obvious the switch is defective and it’s time to replace it with a new one.
Why would the light switch stop working?
If the issue persists, it could be anything from a loose wire to a short circuit. A short circuit is caused when the hot wire (black wire) touches another hot wire or touches a white neutral wire. A break in a wire in the circuit can also cause this problem.
Can a bad switch trip a breaker?
A light switch that has become faulty can short out and trip a breaker. An old light switch can crack and become unusable and cause the breaker to trip. The wires can become brittle and cause a circuit overload or a short.
