This is a picture of one of the fixtures* I pulled down for replacement today, should not be too hard to see what is wrong.

*No, I am not going to call them "luminaires" [Linked Image]

Seems that was a bad year for electrical work, many more of simular vintage out there.

I'm afraid you can blame my part of the world for that one. The term appeared in the 1980s. [Linked Image]

Until it was added into Article 100, the term was defined in the following fine print note in the 1999 NEC.

Quote
410-1 FPN: The international term for a lighting fixture is luminaire and is defined as a complete lighting unit consisting of a lamp or lamps together with the parts designed to distribute the light, to position and protect the lamps, and to connect the lamps to the power supply.

I thought luminaires were the rich sales rep's who push light fixtures.
