I am attempting to install some ceiling fans/lights but would be grateful for some assistance:
I have three cables coming from the ceiling:
2x Red, Black & Green/Yellow
1x Red, Black with a red sleeve & Green/Yellow
The block in the new ceiling light has three connectors, L, N & E. There are wires already connected to the light itself - L has a red wire and brown wire, N has a blue wire and E has 2x green & yellow wires, one connected to the side of the light fitting.
Can you help with with the wires from the ceiling?
I am assuming that:
* the black wire with the red sleeve goes into the L
* the 2x black go into the N
* the 3 green & yellow go into the E
I am stuck with the reds. Do all 3 reds go into a "choc block" or only 2
reds? If only 2 reds go into a "choc block" which red goes into the block in the light fitting and is this also to go into the L?
hi CT you are correct all 3 reds go to spare choc-block,
docs project shows this clearly,
what you have (ignoring earths) is L+N in from previous light,
L+N onto next light, L to sw. & sw. L (the sleeved blk) back to light
