Where is the fuse???

I have been replacing the overhead light bulbs from incandescent to LED. I installed two over the sink, one incorrectly. They have a + - .The first I installed correctly, the second did not light, when I rotated the bulb the first one dimmed then went out. I put the old bulbs back and nothing, I checked the light over the sofa it is dead also. For the life of me I cannot find the fuse, not in the two panels under the bed, Not in the fuse box in the basement, or at least I didn't see a blown fuse.
Any advise?
Jim

Jim, Using a test light check the line side or feed at the fixture. See if it'll light to rule out the presence of power. Remember you also need an effective ground for the circuit to work. If you have circuit breakers you may want to check to see if all of those are pushed in. Most 12V circuit problems cab be diagnosed as having a bad ground or poor connection.

Called the factory, they confirmed all the 12 volts came from the inverter and the fuse panels under the bed. They suggested that the red light may have burned out also. Checked and found the fuse. Hope it helps someone else.
