Light problem


Hi there.
In my house from some reason every time someone takes a shower the light in the shower suddenly turns off, forcing the one inside (if any) to use the auxiltry light (in the balcony) . What should I do to prevent it?

Stay smelly???
Sorry if I'm not more help but this sounds like a hardware problem, not a software problem.

But seriously,...
Sounds like a wiring problem. It seems to me that water vapor is getting into the fixture or wiring and shorting things out.

Is this inside the shower stall itself, or just inside the bathroom... ???

That does sound like potential danger -- have that wiring checked out right away!

Maybe the light bulb is not screwed in tight.

A shower wouldnt change that, and I doubt it is the wiring, when something shorts out, it shorts out. There is no temporary shorting out. It is something else, I doubt it to be a danger, unless you slip, but beyond that...
