Hi all, have joined up and am hoping for some help in wiring in a ceiling rose.
Firstly I am a keen DIY'er and have wired in more ceiling lights and roses than I care to remember. I know which wire goes where. 3 brown wires in the middle 3 hole section of the rose. Switched live and brown flex to bulb go in the 2 hole section of the ceiling rose and the 2 blues and blue flex to bulb go in the 3 hole section of the ceiling rose.
Today I took off a ceiling light and rewired in a simple rose. When I put all 3 brown wires into the central section of the rose and switch power back on it keeps tripping. The problem wire is the live from the switched cable. Leaving this live out of the equation I can continue the loop and all the other house lights work bar the one I'm working on.
