Changed a Pendant for a Spotlight and now the Light Switch will not Work

Postby Berni967 » Thu Feb 12, 2015 4:54 pm

I have two cable coming from ceiling one with 2 reds and 1 yellow green and the other with 1 red, 1 yellow green and 1 black. Have connected black to blue, yellow green to yellow green and all reds to brown. The lights come on but cannot be turned off via the switch, looked at the light switch and there are 2 reds cables and 1 yellow green. Normally I don't have a problem but this is the first time doing a spotlight, I would appreciate any help you can offer as I am about to go mad. Thank you
