These inspections are conducted in the evening and all owners with non-operational fixtures at the time of inspection will be sent notice. If you are experiencing trouble after attempting to replace the bulbs, some suggestions to consider are:
Check the breaker or GFI switch associated with the fixture. It could be that the breaker or GFI switch may need to be reset. The sensor or photocell may need to be replaced. These typically have a life span of a few years. Most national home improvement stores have them in stock or an electrician can perform the replacement. If these steps do not restore the light to operation, an electrician may be necessary to further troubleshoot the problem, or if you are still under your builder's warranty they may be able to assist you.
