3 blown bulbs and tripped GFCI
I'm hoping someone can help me with a minor mystery. I have a bathroom bar that uses six small 50w xenon lamps, three on one side and three on the other.
Today I discovered that the three bulbs on the right side had blown. At the same time I discovered a GFCI outlet in the bathroom tripped.
I'm assuming these two things are connected, but I don't know enough about wiring to know for sure.
I also find it curious that all the blowouts are on one side. I can't recall if the two sides are wired separately.
I installed the fixture about a year ago and this is the first time I've run into a problem.
Having just discovered how crazy expensive these xenon lamps are to replace, I'm anxious to figure out what might have happened before the same thing happens again.
