Hi guys,i've been in this forum a few times for looking help to connect a ceiling rose back which is i've disconnected it previosly without checking the cables location,now im trying to put it up back,but unfortunatley all my attempts failed :oops: ,i have 4 main cables hanging out from the ceiling at downstairs hallway,each have brown,blue,yellow/green cables,except one have double brown,yellow/green cables and also single blue and brown cable,only one of these brown cable is live,could anybody please help me how to reconnect these cables into the right places,thanks.
hi, i think the reason you are not getting help is your explanation of what cables you have is VERY confusing!
If I just assume you have 3 cables with bn+blu, & one with 2 brns then it should be easy!
all grn/yell earths go together to earth of fitting. if a standard rose there will be a large earth term on the plate.
all 3 blues go to the terms at the end of the rose by the flex blue, usually 2 terminals next to flex term.
from the cable with 2 bns put 1 of them into term next to brn flex term.
this should leave 4 brns which go into the 3 terms in the middle of the rose marked 'loop'
If this is not clear, then you need hands-on help, regards SPARX
Hi SPARX, thanks for your help,i really appreciate it,yes you are right i have 3 cables with brown&blue and one with 2 brown,so i have 5 brown &3 blue cables all together,sorry for asking again,you have said i should put those 4 brown cables to 3 terms in middle of rose marked "loop",but i checked the ceiling rose and the 3 terms in the middle of rose marked just L,which i guess is mean LIVE,2 terms on the left marked as "loop",so im little bit confused!Do i need to put all blues to terms marked N,put 1 of the brown from the cable with 2 browns into term next to brown flex term and 4 browns go to into the terms in the middle of the rose marked L.thanks a lot,
Hi sorry for delay been away,
most ceiling roses have loop in live terms in middle but not all so ...
all blues with flex blue in terms. marked N
one brown from twin brn cable to flex brn terms.
remaining brns to loop in L terms wherever they are.
guess you have probably already done it by now, BW SPARX
