The pull switch can be wired in line at the required position by removing the outer insulation on the cable sufficiently to allow for the intended live conductor to be cut and one end connected the switch in terminal and the other to the out terminal.

Make sure that the cable is not live or connected to the supply in any way while you are working on Please remember to rate this solution.it.

The problem is that you need to understand that the red and black wires may not be power and return. The main red line is broken at a point and a new cable run to the light ( red + black) or (blue+ brown) this is merely the switch circuit fore that light. So if you mistake the two points it may be that what you have is red+red to your globe. ( Is that clear?) you would need to find the common black + the red to take power to the Red+black to your new ceiling rose, but breaking the now new red wire somewhere and joining in a new red_+ black that goes down to the switch


Use a power checking device as sometimes in some roses where multiple circuitsw feed fom Black and Black can be live

How do i replace a pull cord with light switch


Ok so, L (line) N (Neutral) and E (Earth ground), and no idea what this rose is. I suppose you mean Junction Box when you say JB. You can use the original junction box for the wall switch connector, but the Black and white wires coming from the switch must be disconnected from power to be used, if power is already present in your light's original junction box (which is usually the case when using a pull switch light). Then you connect the white and black wires to your wall switch and use them to break the circuit at the light itself by wiring it between the light and the power lead.

Ceiling rose nt working


Look for the manufacturer's wiring on line or if the product is still available ask a merchant to permit you to copy the schematic from a similar product as yours. If they want future or continued service to you they will most likely accommodate you.
If that does not work, have a certified electrician look at it to sort out the three black and four earth wires.

Downstairs toilet light switch needs rewiring


Yes, run a black wire from connector (a) to one terminal of your new light fitting if you are installing a metal fitting you will need to connect an earth wire also.

If you are reusing the same pull switch and it is still connected as you describe then the floating end near the light is probably the switched live conductor, so you could connect this to the live terminal of the new light. but be careful it may be live.

Caution always disconnect the power before working on electrical wiring.
