There was a break-in at my place recently. The burglar came in to the property through the backyard. When I moved in the place, the patio light did not work. I got a new light fixture but it still doesn't work. Apparenlty, there is no electricity current. I don't know much about the electricity. Try to get a book from the library and see how the house wiring works but I haven't finished the book yet.

I decide to hire someone to get it fix now so I can install a motion sensor lighting. Before I start to call contractors, I wonder whether anyone here can let me know what the problem it could be and how big the job it is.

If there is electricity current, I can install the light fixture. I am not a handy woman but I can learn. Thanks for any help!
