Just after some advice to stop me burning my house down by fitting a new light unit.
I have bought a unit with the worlds worst instructions. They say you feed a cable through the insulation and connect the light up via a connector block with a live ; neutral and Earth in it.
I have taken down the existing light fitting (plastic one as new house so just a flex with a bulb on out of a standard ceiling rose).
Because of the design (you have to screw a metal plate directly onto the ceiling you cant fit this over the current ceiling rose.) I have looked at the current ceiling rose and it looks confusing.
After reading the guide on here it says that if you need to remove the ceiling rose you will need to replace it with a junction box. Wont this just cause the same issue in that the metal plate that holds the light still wont be able to be flush to the ceiling?
There are three cables feeding the ceiling rose that looks like it is the standard thing after reading the guide on here.
Am I missing the obvious?
I dont think I will give up my day job just yet.
I would really like the satisfaciton of doing this but I think I may look for an electrician in the new year :oops:
Has anyone encountered the same job and have any advice to share.
Thanks for your help
