I had a ceiling light stop working in my apartment bedroom about 8 years ago. Not being electrically inclined, I thought the wiring or fixture went bad and I'd need an electrician to come out. Lazy me, I just stopped using that light. Finally a few months ago I was researching light fixtures on the good ole' Internet and saw that 99% of lights controlled by wall switches went out due to faulty switches. Lo and behold, I turned off the circuit breaker, switched this one for the old one in less that 5 minutes and the light came on again. I'm such and electridiot.
