    Hello



    I have two electrical installations in the apartment - one for sockets, the other for lighting. Today I noticed that the bulb in the kitchen chandelier begins to flash. I thought the light bulb burned out and when I tried to unscrew it, something flashed, shot in the chandelier and blown fuses in the apartment. After turning on the fuses, I only have the light in the hall in the chandelier next to the box. In all other rooms, the lighting stopped working. I guess you have to call an electrician, but I have a few questions.

    1. What could happen if the entire lighting system was damaged or simply broken in one place and the electrician should easily locate and fix it?

    2. Can I use the working chandelier freely in the hallway, and can the switches in rooms where there is no light stay in the on position, or is there a risk of short circuit? (in each case there is a different set of on and off positions, and unfortunately I do not remember in which room the light was on at the time of the short circuit and in which not, therefore any switch may remain in the on position).

    You have one installation and several circuits.

    Have you checked the staircase protection (if the installation has three phases)?

    Well, you can't do without an electrician. Somewhere the cable burned, and there is no fault through the forum.
