Hi there, I have a bathroom mirror that I need to wire in. There is already an outlet from the wall - a white sheath containing 4 wires - 1 brown, 1 yellow/green, 1 black and one white (which has been terminated).
The mirror has a 3 way connecting block with a brown, yellow, and blue wire.
I figured that the brown goes to brown, the yellow to yellow/green and then one end is connected to an earth point on the metal backframe and the blue to black. This leaves the white from the wall terminated.
The other end of the cable has proberly been spured from a light fitting or switch in the bathroom & has been disconected, remove fittings & check, make sure connect the same i.e. live to red or brown, neutral to black or blue.
