I live in Canada, and I have taken down a ceiling fan light fixture and then hooked up a regular light fixture.
I found the light remains on and does not work with the switch. I have never had this problem before and it has me plain stumped as I thought I was a fairly skilled handyman type of guy. I tested the switch and there is no power at the swich now. Everything seems to be hooked up right (live to live; neutral to neutral; and ground to ground): I even bought a new wall light switch (before discovering no power to the switch). Now this is the stumper... the light switch on the wall did work before disconecting the original ceiling fan. Now since hooking up the new fixture the light seems to be hardwired as it won't switch off??
