Replacing a ceiling rose with a light fitting


Postby Stradders » Sat Apr 14, 2007 12:05 pm

I'm trying to replace a ceiling rose with a light fitting, but am unsure about the wiring. From left to right, the existing wires are....


Brown - Black .... Red - Red - Red .... Black - Black - Blue


I have a 3 terminal block and a separate terminal block, i need to know which wires i need to bunch together in what way.

Thanks in advance :)

Well done you looked & noted first most people discon. first then panic....
The really important wire is the first 'black' which is connected to the brown of flex next to it, it is really a 'red' as it's the switch wire coming back from wall switch, MARK IT with red tape/sleeving etc b4 disconnecting, then rest easy...
all three other reds go together in a spare connector & don't go to operate light, merely looping through.
remaining 2 blackes are neutrals and go to fitting neutral block, your newly marked 'black/red goes to fittings live term.block
