Hi! This is my first post. I found this site when Googling. I hope I am posting in the right place. I have a 2-switch light switch. One switch (which goes to an outside light which is mounted right on the outside wall behind the switch). That switch stopped working about a month after a new light fixture was installed outside. Now the second switch which controls a ceiling fan in my living room has stopped working (about 6 months after the other one stopped working). I have not had this problem fixed. I am going to have a new ceiling fan installed and yesterday my brother-in-law got handy and took down the old fan and capped it off until I can get the ceiling painted and a new fan installed. Now I am worried that he acted too hastily and that the switch in the wall should have been totally working BEFORE he took down the fan..., but, anyway, I guess one of my major questions is I don't think the housepainters who installed the new outside fixture after painting my house caulked the fixture at all... do you think that humidity got into the outside fixture and maybe this double switch which is right behind it??? Is that what caused the wall switch to stop working??? What would you do now not having a fixture on the ceiling to test the second switch?
