My kitchen lights went out with a loud pop. The circuit breaker looks fine. I reset and checked all the GFI outlets which were fine, but reset those too. Do LED lights pull more wattage than average lights? Do they need a different type of switch? I have both LED and regular bulbs in kitchen. Help.
If your light popped and made a loud noise this is more than likely your light bulb. When an LED light goes out it can make a loud popping noise. I would replace the LED light in my kitchen.
As for an LED light needing a different circuit or switch the answer is no. They use the same fixtures and switches as the older model light bulb.
The additional lights (non LED) are also not working after the pop.
Good job troubleshooting. To answer you questions:
1. Led lights actually use less wattage, so yes your existing circuits are fine.
I have a light in my front door hallway and it stopped working. The switch for it is by the switch for the outside light and they still work. What could be wrong?
You could have a 3 way switch. The hallway portion doesnt work and the porch light does.
The switch could have a broken wire or something could have broken off on the underside of the wall switch. I know it can be an easy fix if you are skilled in electrical things. I always call pro. I am afraid of diy electrical projects! Safely first in my world!
My son put up a ceiling light for me, while he was doing it he got a spark. Now my bathroom and hallway lights don't work. I have turned the breakers on and off, but they still haven't started working.
