Typically, the white wire is neutral. ANY non-white wire [except green] is hot. Green is typically ground.

Hot wire should go first to a switch or safety device [fuse or circuit breaker]. If this is an unswitched light fixture, the wires will go directly to the bulb sockets. Follow the color codes I just described.

Another solution is to get a continuity tester or ohm meter. The hot lead should show connection to the center contact in any socket.

How high above the dining room table should I hang my electric chandelier?


The height you hang your chandelier above your kitchen tabledepends on the wattage of the light bulbs and the of the chandelier. If you are using lower wattage light bulbs,you should hang the fixture about 2.5 feet above the center of your dining roomtable. If you are using higher wattagebulbs, I suggest hanging it 3 feet about the table so it is not too bright.

I suspect the "little plastic or ceramic bit" you saw, is the chain stop to keep the chain from winding up inside the housing when it's bulled and released. Can it be put back on? I doubt it, but is worth a try. Since the chain is not inside the fixture. It may be simpler to replace the the whole pull chain switch. It's not difficult to do and you can pick up a new switch from Lowe's or Home Depot for about $5.00. Take you old one with you for comparison purposes, as they come in different sizes.

Hope this helped you and thanks for choosing FixYa.

I bought a place with intermatic malibu outdoor lighting. The wire on the light fixture was broken when bushes were taken out. I can't find any instructions on how to connect a new fixture to the...


Malibu low-voltage light fixtures come equipped with a quick-connect that is pressed onto the power cable to make connection to the wires within it. These quick-connects are handy, but they are also relatively fragile, subject to shorting/disconnections, and nearly impossible to repair. I have spliced a replacement connector's wire leads onto the wire leads from a broken fixture, but the connectors are nearly impossible to find (I remove mine from fixtures that are beyond repair). Perhaps the simplest and most effective repair is to strip small sections of the power cable, splice the fixture wire leads onto the cable (don't be overly concerned about matching polarity), and seal the splice with electrical tape and a silicone sealant.

I hope this information helps.

Recomended cleaning for kitchen porcelain sink


Scouring powders or cleansers contain abrasives commonly used to clean and remove stubborn stains that are slow to respond to chemical action alone.

However, use of an abrasive cleaner may scratch and damage smooth finishes such as porcelain, fiberglass or enamel making it even more difficult to clean the surface in the future.

New kitchen and bathroom fixtures do not require a scouring cleanser to clean them of soap films and body oils. Dissolving soil by soaking with the correct non-abrasive cleaner (especially a foaming type that sticks to the surface) then wiping and rinsing usually does the job.
When cleaning older, abused fixtures, choose the mildest abrasive cleaner available such as a Soft Scrub -type product or baking soda, and apply just enough that, with light pressure, the embedded soils are loosened and may be rinsed away.

Wire connection from lighting ballast


What you do is cut the wires from the old ballast that feed to the fixture end connectors then 'wire nut' the new ballast wires to the old wires.
