I live in a mobile home. Bedroom ceiling fan/light worked fine. Next day no power. Tried switch weeks later. Fixture worked with no repairs. Is it safe to use? If I just leave the switch off will everything be safe. Cannot really afford repairs at this time.
Might/might not be the switch. I'd pull the switch out and ensure the wires are all secure and look fine. Otherwise, it sounds like a short and just toggling the switch might disrupt it.
