I agree with buying a voltage detector. But, I would make sure that all the of circuit breakers are turned on. I would check other light switches near or in the kitchen because it is unlikely that the affected lights are on a dedicated circuit. Then, I would carefully remove the light switch cover plate and pull the light switch out from the wall to make sure that a wire is connected to each side of the switch. If so, then the problem is most likely a defective light switch. It's an easy DIY project, if you feel comfortable doing electrical work.

I'm not sure if this will pertain to you, but aprox 6 months ago we experienced the same thing, only with the master bathroom lights. after calling seco a few times, . we were told the issues were with a faulty transformer unit, (whatever that means.) they came out, checked it & it hasnt happened since. if the issue persists, phone seco & see what happens

Let there be light! Electrician just left. It was the switch. A simple fix for someone who knows what they are doing, but that isn’t who we are. Thanks for the suggestions.

If you are happy with the electrician. Maybe tell us the name of the company and price they charged you.

I called Lenhart Electric 352-748-5818. We have used them in the past and were pleased. They charge $90 for the first 30 minutes and $90 for every hour after that. They replaced the bad switch and fixed another problem within the first half hour. Parts were extra but not unreasonable.
