Light Fixture Repair
A problematic light fixture can be more than an inconvenience. It could be a sign of larger electrical issues in your home that could pose a potential fire hazard.
A licensed electrician can safely assess your faulty light fixture to determine if the issue is within the light itself or stems from a problem in your home’s electrical system. From there, you can address any underlying issues and make an informed decision on whether to repair or replace your light fixture, if necessary.

Fixture repairs usually cost between $75-200. Costs will be affected by the nature of the repair, the accessibility of the fixture and your home’s wiring.
Most light fixtures can be repaired in an hour or less. However, if the issue is related to your home wiring, it could take longer to diagnose the problem and make all necessary repairs.
Your light fixture might be due for repairs if it flickers or dims, doesn’t work after changing light bulbs, is hot to the touch, or makes a buzzing or humming noise. Problems with fixtures can indicate larger electrical issues and should be checked out by a licensed electrician as soon as possible.
Issues with light fixture may start with the fixture itself or as a result of problems with lightbulbs or your home’s wiring. An electrician can check the sockets and wiring within the fixture as well as the switches and wiring that power it. Your pro may be able to rewire the fixture or replace a faulty socket or bulb, or may need to repair connections to your home’s wiring. In some cases, it may cost less to replace a light fixture than to repair it.
