The telephone repair guy traced it back to a bare wire on a highway that my road shoots off of. Took him a few hours to find it. He said it wasn't letting the signal get through all the time...

Lumens! Duh. Should have known that.

Thanks again.

I've got one bulb left, so hopefully I have a little time to get things together for the change.

Thank you for laying all that out, Carbide.

I think I'd like to go the everything brand new route.
I'm not into re-working the fixture. Heck, I don't even like heights, lol.

Yes, like a loud, multi-pitched scraping/whirring kind of noise. Tipping it did not dislodge anything, nor make it worse.

Sorry. It's like a loud scraping noise. Louder when the dryer is on than when moving by hand.
