Question about Electrical Supplies
Just had the downstairs loo re-plastered - plaster removed the ceiling light and the wiring from the junction box - he had no idea how to reconnect the light.
So above the light I have a connector (a) with red, green and black wires going into it and coming out of it - assuming this is part of the ring.
The pull switch had a black and red wire going into it and at the moment the other end of this wire is floating next to where the light should be.
Can I run a black from connector (a) direct to the light and then run a red from connector (a) to the light via the pull switch? So in effect making a loop?
Any help would be appreciated.
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.
Please remember to rate this solution.
