Hello, I'm having a nightmare and can't for the life of me see where i'm going wrong. I took a photo of the switch before but after putting a new one in it keeps tripping upstairs. Hope someone can spot my error. Thanks
In the UK there is no definitive "colour code" for lighting, so unless we can see the other picture you have taken (Then compare the two) the only advice anyone can offer is guess work.
When you say "it keeps tripping upstairs" I assume you mean the MCB for the upstairs lighting trips? if this is so, when does it trip, does it trip as soon as you turn on the MCB or does it trip when you operate the light switch?
