    Question Warm weather friend

    My outside porch light works in warm weather but not in cold weather. We had temperatures in the high 20's last week and it didn't work. It warmed up later in the week and it worked. I had some remodeling done and the problem began after that. All the other outside lights work but this is the only one that was not new.

    Are you using a CFL bulb in the fixture? If so a lot of them may take a few minutes to warm up in the cold weather so they will be dim. I'm not an electrician so other than the bulb I'm not sure what the problem would be. Have you tried another fixture in this spot to see if the problem was corrected?

    No, I'm not using a CFL bulb. I haven't tried a different fixture, but that's a good idea. I guess I've been focusing on the fact that it worked before the remodel but not after. Thanks.
