Question Lighting won't stay lit

I have a ceiling light which can be controlled by three different switches on a house which was recently purchased. The light quit working so I bought another light fixture, just like the one taken down. I installed it and everything worked fine for about two days. Now it does not work. I have power to the switches and to the box, yet the connection will not maintain. Any suggestions or directions?

Sounds as if one of the switches is failing. You may be able to detect this by "feeling" the switch, in that it feels different when it is thrown. Another possibility is an intermitent lose of a connection in a wire nut. Remember, these connections MUST be twisted together PRIOR to placing the wire nut.
