Check the breakers again. On some styles it may not be obvious that it has tripped. Try turning the breaker completely off,then back on. If that d...

My guess is your neighbors have the same fan model and remote. There should be a series of small switches on the remote and the fan that allow you ...
The other half of the receptacles should be switched. Do you have a switch (or two) that you are not sure what it controls? Turn it on and see if t...
Check the neutral connections in the switch box where the power for the fan was taken. Chances are that is where the problem is.
Turn off the power to this circuit, then try using needle nose pliers to remove the broken pieces. If that doesn't work, replace the receptacle.
Check for a tripped GFCI receptacle. It may be in another bathroom, the garage, behind furniture, even outside.
Look for a smoke detector that has been installed in the attic. Take it out, you do not need one there. Find the breaker that controls the detec...
Check to make sure all the bathroom vents are operating properly and are vented to the outside. It may be that your home was built too tight and ma...
Is this a steady or intermittant event? Is it tied to another appliance starting up, or completely random? Do other lights brighten when these dim?...
By "doesn't work" do you mean they don't turn on or they don't turn off? Most of these lights will come on after power is restored and stay on for ...
If the fan only has a black, white and green, then you do not have enough wires to run the fan and light separately by switching. This is unusual t...
Mounting an outlet strip as you describe can most certainly be done as long as it is protected by a GFCI breaker or receptacle. Follow Billhart's s...
You may use #4 copper (two hot, one neutral) and a #8 copper ground (insulated), type THHN or THWN in most jurisdictions.
You don't have to use #2 Cu, #4 Cu would be fine. Run four wires (3 #4THHN Cu and 1 #8THHN Cu) in a 1.25 schedule 80 PVC conduit. The wires should ...
The motion detector works as a switch so it must be wired between the incoming power and the lights. There should be two wires from the detector, o...
If all you have in the switch box is one, black, one white, and one ground, you do not have power feeding to that box. That is the description of a...
In the switch box you should have 4 wires (if you have more, post back for further instructions): two blacks connected to the switch and two whites...
The previous owner obviously wanted to be able to operate the fan and light separately, but took a convoluted and dangerous way to do it. You have ...
