    :confused: Need your help on my CURRENT ADVENTURE,
    Hi, currently doing up the loo and have a single switch in the hall this switch turns on the light in the loo and the extractor fan all on the one switch.
    The rooms got no window so a fan was fitted when built.
    Whilst I am painting away in the room suddenly the light will start flickering. I think it does it in time to the fan noise, it’s not all the time sometimes you put the light on and its fine other times it flickers away.
    Please what could be the cause.
    X Tully

    Loose connection in the switch or the ceiling rose. Have you disturbed one of them while decorating?
