Having problems with your Cars & Trucks ?
House Lightswitches Melting
\015 My mother-in-law lives in a ranch-style house built in the mid-80s that was originally constructed as a complete handicap-accessible home with an in-house elevator. All the light switches in the house are the "rocker" style. In the past 6 months, at various different times, 3 of the light switches have melted at the base of the rocker. All 3 were on different circuits. Each time I have replaced just the one melted switch. I'm considering replacing all the light switches (around 60 various single and 3-way) with brand new ones however I would like to cure the problem and not just the symptom. Am I going about solving this problem the right way? Could there be some other underlying cause, like the wiring? What else could be causing the malfunction?\015
