    Ceiling fan / light problem

    No I really didn't think of that. I can do that put the old fans you have to pull completely off. I'll give it a try. Thanks

    Ceiling fan / light problem

    So I removed an old ceiling fan in our spare room and installed a Hunter. The old fan would stay on unless you pulled the chain to turn it off. The light was switched by the wall switch.

    480V Plugged Lockouts

    Wiring outlet from a switch

    Well the power originates at the switch. So I tapped into the light wiring and dropped romex for the outlet. So the outlet won't be hot unless the light is on, which won't be a big problem really. Thanks everyone for the help.

    Wiring outlet from a switch

    I'm going to check that this afternoon. The problem is, the light fixture is directly above where the outlet is going, so I can just drop Romex from there. The switch is on the opposite wall so I have no way of getting to that wiring behind the wall.

    Hello, I want to add an electrical outlet in the bathroom (currently not one in there) the only way I can gain access to wiring is from the light. I can drop a wire from the light inside the wall to the electrical box. I realize when the light is off so will be the outlet. How can I accomplish...
