GE JTP20 oven. Do I need to replace light fixture after spark from a short?

First, no First, no First unplug the range after you gently scoot away from wall. Then check youy main circut breaker for house to see if you tripped fuse. Then with stove still unplugged remove back access panel, look to area where light goes into oven. Check again and make sure oven is unplugged, then repair the wire by splicing wire with new wire line splice purchased at your nearest local auto parts store, sales person can show how to install. THEN plug in to see if you can see the light!

Need to purchase valves & brackets for this.....only have the ceramic fixture.

You will probably have to go to a plumbing wholesale house to find the hanger brackets. If they don't have eljer bracket they should have universal brackets that will work fine. They would probable be your best bet for the flush valves also. Thank you.

sounds like a loose connection. You will need to take fixture down and check to see if the wire nuts are tight. Make sure power is off. Also, check to make sure the sockets are tight where the bulbs screw in. Hope this helps Tim

We have an existing wall mounted occupancy sensor ON/ AUTO/OFF (2 wire with equipment grounding conductor.) Until now, the sensor has controlled two (2) incandescent medium base porcelain lamp holders (60W...

This is not a surprise. Many wall-mounted devices such as occupancy sensors and dimmers operate by leaking a little bit of power through the light fixtures. In the world of incandescent, this was rarely a problem - that little bit of current wasn't enough to excite the bulb. But now that we're living in a world of low-wattage lamp types, that little bit of current is now enough power to excite the lamp and cause what you're seeing. The added detriment is that little bit of pulsing that you see in the CFL can actually wear it out pretty quickly.

The short-term solution is to use the older-style, incandescent lamps.
Another short-term solution would be to attempt using another manufacturer's CFL or try an LED lamp - that's by no stretch a guarantee, you'd be rolling the dice with each lamp choice you made. The higher wattage the lamps, the less likely you'll see an issue.

There are two long-term solutions:
1) Add another lamp - the more lamps the control sees, the less leakage current that goes through each lamp. Several people have solved this by adding a 'dummy' incandescent load (like a 15W or 25W lamp) somewhere in the lighting circuit to take the brunt of the leakage.
2) Change the wall-sensor. Lutron makes one (MS-OPS6M-DV-WH) that has extremely low leakage current and may solve the problem. But the best way to guarantee it won't be an issue is to use a wall-sensor that connects to the neutral wire in the wallbox. Those devices take that leakage current and dump it out the neural wire rather than run in through the light fixture. Lutron makes one of those as well (MS-OPS5AM-WH)

15 amp breaker will not reset with all load off.

They are sensitive little ****, I know they won't work on a florescent fixture, no lights should be on it anyway, but just in case, and the slightest thing wrong, one wire off, one ground undone, it will snap off. And they do go bad, so don't tear the house down to find the trouble when the breaker might be bad. Hook the wire into an existing 15 amp breaker and see if it snaps that off. Then you will know it is not the breaker but something in the wall. Check it out.

I want to install a light in my garage i have a live source but how do i connect it to the light and wall switch

My first response would be to seek help from an electrician or someone qualified to perform this work.
If you are going to attempt it, you will need the following items:
- electrical box
- light switch
- light fixture
- wire ( ask you local hardware store clerk what is recommended or needed to meet code in your area.

Disconnect power at breaker to your source.
From your source,
- connect wires to electrical box. then to;
- connect wires to switch then to;
- connect wires to another box at the fixture
- connect fixture to the box.

Get a test light, a bulb in a socket with a black and a white wire. disconnect both the black and the red. Also have access to the white or the ground. Then with the power hold the white test light wire to the white of the house and the black to the black. .turn the dimmer on and off and see if it controls the light. NEXT do the same with the red, that is test light black held to red and test light white held to house white. once again check the dimmer.

Typically when you have a hot red and a hot black in a fixture the black is on the dimmer and the red is always on because it is connected to an outlet built into the light. OR the light can be controlled from two locations, one regular switch and one dimmer switch.

I have red, metal, beige, and black wires in my ceiling. how do i hook up my Glendale fan?

If you could give me the specs on this (voltage and amperage), I can begin to help. Also, I would need to know what the values of the wires in the ceiling are. Black or Red wire's a Hot wire or switch leg. To find this out. First turn off the circuit breaker(s) at your electrical house panel. There could be two circuits, so make sure to have a voltage tester, or a little induction voltage tester that will help determine if power is on or off. Also, turn your wall switch off designated for this fixture. Now, leaving the wall switch off. Make sure to do this with two people. Turn on the circuit breaker. Either the black or the red wire will be hot (unless there's other circuits involved, which I don't think there is). Once you determine your hot wire, write it down. And then turn on the wall switch. Now, the other wire should be hot now. This is your switch leg. The wire that will operate (on and off) your fixture. Beige is most likely your neutral wire, and will go to the white wire(s) at the fixture. And the metal wire is your ground wire, and should go to your bare copper wire inside of your fixture. So now, turn everything back off (including both your circuit breaker and wall switch). So, Hot wire goes directly to your wall switch. It might be easier to hook up your switch leg first, because then the wire left over will go to your switch. So, Hot wire hooks up to wall switch. Other wire coming from switch, hooks up to the other colored wire (switch leg). The beige wire stays at the fixture and hooks up to the white wire(s), and then the bare copper wire splices (connects) to the metal wire from the ceiling. After you have everything wired, and the fixture put back together. Here's how you test it. Leave wall switch in off position. First, turn the circuit breaker back on. If everything is fine, then you turn on the wall switch. Note: If you're able to leave the fixture in the on position prior to turning the wall switch on - do so. That's why if there's any problems, you'll be a safe distance away. And the worst that could happen is that you trip the circuit breaker. Then, you'll have to recheck everything you did, and make sure all your connections are secure. Well, Good Luck to you, and feel free to ask me any further questions you may have. Jim

I have an outside spot light with a motion detector controlled by an inside switch. I want to change outside fixture & install dimmer switch in place of wall switch. I removed outside fixture. There...

First, let me say that if you're not entirely comfortable doing high voltage electrical work, you might want to call an electrician. It's not impossible for you to get hurt or killed or burn down your house. At least be sure to turn of the circuit breaker while you're working on it.

The blacks and whites twisted together are passing through power to other parts of your premises and are always on, so be sure to keep them twisted together. The red is the one that will take power from your light switch and send it to your light fixture.

At the fixture, connect the white to white and red to black, the same as before. At the light switch, connect the black to one side of the switch and the red to the other. When you turn on the switch, it will permit power from the black to travel down the red to the fixture, and from the fixture, the circuit will be completed through the white.

Good luck!
