Recently, the fan/light for our stair landing going from the 1st to the 2nd floor stopped. In checking the electrical current for the switches controlling the fan/light, the current is extremely week.

The circuit breaker seems fine. The same circuit controls the outlets in our bedroom, that are fine.

What could possibly be the problem?

I don't understand your reference to the current being weak. Do you mean the voltage? Are there more than one switch controlling this fan? Is either one of them a dimmer/controller type? If so, your switch might be going bad. You may have a bad switch in another location. You might have a loose connection. Check all connections, inclucing the one above the fan. If no change, maybe the fan is going bad.

Let us know what you find out.
