    Unhappy Kitchen Overhead light stopped workin

    All of a sudden our overhead light in the kitchen stopped working. We have many other panel lights that work fine so I
    am thinking it is the switch. Am I correct in assuming this
    and if so how do I test the switch?

    Thanks

    First not sure what you mean by panel light, but just because the other ones work doesn't mean that that one hasn't failed. A light is much more likely to fail than a switch.
    I would check a switch with voltmeter to see is it is turning the power on and off.

    thanks for the advice on checking the switch.

    Now, after 3 to 4 days of not working the light has
    decided to work- I think you are right it must be
    the connection to the light itself not the switch-
    does it sound like just a loose wire to you?

    Thanks again!

    Could be a loose connection or a loose bulb.
