Haven't had this bungalow all that long. The flori in the
verandah/conservatory (mounted with its back against the wall and up against
the polysomethingorother roof) started to flicker on and off around once per
second.
I thought I'd swap the starter to begin with cept I couldn't see any sign of
a starter.
Tube off, cover off and there's the lil bugger, facing upwards against the
poly.
pffffffffffffft.

Angle grinder job then.
surely a fein multimaster will make a neater job of cutting the hole in the
roof to access the starter from outside?

Good idea, I've already sourced a small umbrella to cover the hole. Just
need a bracket now.

wouldn't it be easier just to take the light fitting down and turn it
around so that the starter is at the bottom, rather than re-arrange a poly
roof......there's only half a dozen screws involved, and 3 of those will be
the elecrical terminal ones.

That wouldn't work cos the cowboy has drilled a hole for the switch cable on
the opposite side to the starter. If I turn it over I'll have to extend the
cable so it goes through and along the roof then in through the door.
Anyway, with it not being Wednesday I'd have to pay full wack for the cable.
