Circuit Breaker Trips Every Time the Ceiling Fan Light is Turned On

A Tempe homeowner called our Sharp Electric Tempe branch with the following electrical problem. “Every time someone turns the ceiling fan light switch ON, all power is lost in that guest bedroom as well as the guest bathroom lights and the only way to restore power is by turning the light switch OFF and resetting the 15 amp circuit breaker at the main panel.” Electrical Diagnosis: The red wire powering the fan light kit had come undone and was grounded against the ceiling fan rated metal box because the splices were performed with just electrical tape. The electrical tape adhesive properties failed because of the intensive heat in the summers causing the tape to undo itself from the electrical splice. Repairs: The ceiling fan was disassembled to access the ceiling wiring and the proper orange wire nuts were utilized to redo all 4 electrical connections.
