Pro Dave, I’m not insulted just glad of advise from this forumAt the risk of insulting you, are you sure there are not two lighting circuits and one has tripped?
So that sounds like a poor connection or broken wire in that rose.Pro Dave, I’m not insulted just glad of advise from this forum
There is only one Circuit on a 6am breaker
I have found the problem, it’s the light Rose that is lit however, not sure it’s live loop as they seemed secure? Oddly, the lights came on again when I fastened the Ceiling Rose plastic cover up I’ll check that Rose out again tomorrow in daylight
Meanwhile thanks to you all who’ve taken time to reply to me , it’s much appreciated
Be VERY careful is my advice. A lost neutral means the neutral will appear live
Which is why I have my motto, "I don't touch anything that my neon screwdriver has not touched first"If you have a broken neutral conductor part way down a circuit that is live...
and you put a voltage tester between 'Line'(Live) and 'Neutral' that are BOTH at 230v, the tester will show zero Volts as 230v - 230v = 0v, which could make you think that the circuit is dead, when it is NOT!!
I think a neon screwdriver is a very useful thing as it is testing between what may be "live" and earth in "series" with you, which is exactly what you want to know.. Also, i think they are very good for a quick check of polarity..Which is why I have my motto, "I don't touch anything that my neon screwdriver has not touched first"
No doubt there will now be incoming from those who think they should be banned,
Hi Guys, just to update and conclude my issue, there was a loose Neutral in the loop of the last working light. I tripped the MCB and checked with my Volt Pen that all wires were safe and then reconnected the wire which was in a terminal with another wire !
Tightening brass screws with two wire in always tricky! I’m a retired Mechanical Engineer and I thank you all again for you interest and advise
Hi again, I’ve just found a 6amp RCBO amongst some odds and sods I have !Thankyou for coming back and updating us on your result...
With far to many threads we never get to hear if a problem is resolved!!
