  • pop sound installing ceiling fan now no power

    I installed a new ceiling fan with all the breakers off. when I turned on the switch i heard a pop sound. I tried to put the old ceiling light but there does not seem to be any power.
    I checked the fuse box and turned that off on. the room has power at the outlets but the ceiling does not seem to have power. the wires don't show any signs of being burnt. i checked with my contactless voltage detector.

    any thoughts what happened and how to fix?

    It isn't uncommon for the outlets to be on a separate breaker from the lights. That way when an appliance plugged in trips the breaker your lights don't go off! Did you check all the breakers?
