the mystery of the mysterious light switch : CASE CLOSED!

Visitors to my flat have often wondered what this light switch here does. (It has been mentioned before.) It is by my door. For months I assumed it did nothing. It certainly didn't operate the hall lights, which would have been useful as having them automatically turn on at 4am when I'm popping to the loo is not good. Here it is :-





The other light switches aren't mysterious at all. This is what they do.







So. I was thinking the other day, that it was funny that not only did I have a mysterious light switch that I didn't know what it did, and that I also had a light (on the cooker hood) that sometimes didn't turn on when I wanted to. I must have been very tired, because when I decided that these two facts might be related I thought it was a breakthrough!

So I did an experiment.


here is the cooker


here is the cooker with the mysterious 3rd switch on!



So. The mystery was solved : the mystery switch controls the light switch that the cooker light is on. Sorry for such a dull answer. Next week, we investigate what is up the mysterious hatches in the hall and the corridor outside!
