Picture the scene: I walk into a room and flick the light switch. Nothing happens. I grobble around in the dark to where a baby bottle warmer is plugged into a normal outlet and turn the warmer on. All of a sudden the lights come on.
Now if I turn off the baby warmer the light remains on. If I go and turn the light off and then turn it back on again after a couple of seconds, it turns on perfectly fine like a normal light.
If I turn the light off for a little while (something like 15 - 20 minutes) and then turn it on again I am back to the original situation of it not working and me tripping over the various rocking baby things strewn around the place.
Does anyone know why this is the case?
I am assuming that the outlets have been wired into the lighting circuit, which is why there is this relationship, but why does the light start working as normal as long as something else in the room has been turned on and off?
Should I call an exorcist?
