Default Re: Work lamp

Check the mains lead - if it’s 3 core then it seems that the earth connection to the metalwork has come loose/broken. If only 2 core then it’s just stray from the cable and not dangerous, the neon tester will probably light if you hold it on the cable. They are NOT a good indicator.
