What do light repair services include?

Lighting repair services include all the tasks necessary to fix any damaged, defective or non-working lights in your home. Whether it’s repairing ceiling lights, fluorescent lights, porch lights, bathroom ceiling lights, or any other light in your home or property, skilled electricians can fix it. They can find the cause of the problem, do what’s necessary to fix the issue, then test the repaired lights to ensure that the issue is resolved.  

Troubleshooting the problem

Your hired expert starts by finding out the cause of your lighting issue. They can inspect each part of the defective or non-working light, from the wall switch to its bulbs, wires and wall or ceiling fixtures. Once they have found the root of the problem, they apply the appropriate fix. Note that before your repairman does any repairs, they may shut off the power to avoid any accidents. 

Changing the light bulbs

Most issues with non-working lights are due to old, burnt out or broken light bulbs. This is common with fluorescent lights, which often develop black rings on either end, showing they’ve burned out. Your electrician can remove and change out the old, broken or burnt-out bulbs with new ones. 

They can ensure that the replacement light bulb is of the same wattage and size to ensure they work the same as before. If you don’t have any replacement light bulbs, some light repair experts can go to a nearby store and buy them for you for an additional fee. 

Repairing or replacing the light fixture or switch

Should your hired light repairman find that the light’s fixture is the problem, they can proceed to repair or replace it. They can inspect the contact points of the bulb and light switch for any debris or impurities and clear them out with fine sandpaper or steel wool. They can check the wires for frayed or severed sections and splice fresh connections. 

Should the damage be unrepairable, your light repairman can replace the light fixture with a new one. Some repairmen may offer to purchase the new light fixture at the nearest hardware store or light repair shop if you don’t have any replacement fixtures on hand, but this can cost extra.  

Repairing the wiring

Damage to your lighting can be due to frayed, cut or burnt-out wires that led to a short-circuit and no longer supply a stable current. Repairmen can wire-strip and splice new connections for your lights if needed. 

Testing the lighting

After the repairs, your repairman switches the power back on, and the repaired light is tested. Your repairman turns the light on and off a few times, checking that the light doesn’t flicker and no short-circuits result. 

If the light goes out, flickers or shows other unusual behaviour, your repairman switches the power back off and inspects all the components again. They repeat the inspection and repair process until the light is finally fixed and works without fail.

Bathroom heat light repair


Garran ACT, Australia

My bathroom heat lamp light stopped working a week ago but then started working again a couple days ago, only to stop again this morning when I tried the fan. It also then makes the other bathroom heat lamp fail. No part of the heat lamp works once it fails, not the light or fan. I have checked removing the bulbs but still no luck.

Gas Pilot Light Repair s assistance


Red Hill ACT, Australia

21st Apr 2019

We have a Vulcan CX 903 Gas Ducted Heater. We purchased the house last year and have not used it yet. I am trying to get ahead of the cold and get it set up! It was functional during the display home, so we know it works, but the gas (and thus the pilot light) have been off with the change in owners. When we try and light it now, the pilot light lights (showing gas supply), but almost immediately extinguishes, despite us holding the pilot gas switch down. I suspect the jet or pilot light has corrosion or dust in it preventing the gas flowing properly, but I am outside my knowledge base to do much more with gas. Task would suit a gas fitter, or handyman with some experience in similar heaters or mechanisms. We will pay for any parts needed.
