Hi - was wanting to clarify - hate to do something wrong.
My existing setup is such - four groups of wiring coming from the ceiling (3 groups of black, red, yellow/green, and a red with a white). At the moment, the three yellow/green feed into one point marked 'earth', the four red feed into a point marked 'loop', the three black feed into an unnamed point, and the white feeds into an unnamed point.
My new Ikea light fitting has four points, two marked N and two marked L.
Hi! Ruddy foreign junk! buy BRITISH!
OK feel better now...sorry
The 4 reds go into a spare connector (not supplied by Ikea!)
the 3 blacks are Neutrals which go to N term.
the White? (Taped?) Is from sw. & goes to L
earths if fitting is metal MUST go to body of fitting somehow or if all insulated then go to another spare term. block ( not supplied by johnny foreigner!)
