I have a ceiling light fixture with four bulbs and a fan. A while back, two of the bulbs stopped working, but the bulbs themselves were not broken, as putting them into another lamp showed the bulbs were working fine.
Today I finally decided to open the fixture and see if this is something I can fix.
I opened the box, and even though I don't understand the circuit, I noticed that one of the cables was pinched (is this the right term?) like so:
I think it is likely the cable is broken inside, so it would be a good idea to replace the connection and see if this fixes the problem.
As you can see in the picture, the cable is attached to the male part of a connector, while the female part leads to another cable.
I wasn't able to open the connector, so I might need to buy a new one. Does anybody know the name of this connector so I can find it in my local electronic shop?
Here's a front view of the connector in question.
