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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.

I have a large Samsung fridge. The internal fridge side light does not come on... however when the fridge is shut off, then back on the light works, but only for a short period of time. My friend swapped the plugs in the fridge and freezer side to check if it was that and it was not, as the freezer side still worked, so I am unsure what the issue is but it is only on the fridge side, I think it may be to do with the sensor. This can be done any day of the week, as my partner is still WFH. Hoping someone can help me out

I have very high lights at a tennis centre in Caringbah and need an electrician who can change globes for me. I currently have 2 lights out but know that one fitting needs a new ballast as well. The lights ate 1000W metal hallide. The brand of globe I usually use is Sylavnia ( the long thin globes, not the football shaped ones.
