Our upstairs lights (ceiling and 5amp circuit) are all on the same breaker. All has been fine for a year or so, but something has gone wrong now. The precursor may have been when a bedside light on the 5amp circuit was turned on. Apparently it flashed on/off in a regular pattern until it was switched off and now won’t turn on (led bulb that has been tested as working). Bed 1, en-suite, wardrobe. All ok Bed 2, nothing works* Bed 3, nothing works* Bed 4, ceiling doesn’t work* 5 amp circuit does work. Bathroom and landing, nothing works. * the ceiling lights are LED panels and they are faintly glowing all the time irrespective of switch position. The glow is so dim it can only be seen at night. Electrician tells me it may be a loose neutral but he can’t get to us for a week or more to check. I’ve had a quick look in the back of the switches of the affected rooms but nothing found. Does this sound like a loose neutral. If so, is there a clever way of finding where it is?
