Light turns itself on in my house
Posted by Xeno on July 30, 2012
Remember a few days ago when I had a key fly off the wall and land on my kitchen floor when there was no wind and the key had been on its hook for about a week without being touched? … And it turned out the guy who installed the lock and gave us the key had died in a car crash a few days before?
Well, just now, the light in my living room came on by itself. It has never done this before.
The light is about one foot out of arms reach for me as I’m sitting here on the couch, not moving. The light came on, and has stayed on, with no sound at all. I moved around and shook the couch to see if my movement accidentally turned it on. Nope. I have no pets.
Examining the light switch (a knob) shows that it is possible to turn the light on and have it remain off. In that state it takes only a small twist for the light to come on… But I haven’t seen it come on by itself again after many tests.
