I was just going to take the live, neutral, and earth wires and switch them to the new fitting but as I was doing this a few of the connectors had come loose and fell off and now I have a whole load of wires and I don't know how to connect them.
I have attached a photo of what I am left with. I've numbered the wires from 1 to 7
- 1 - Earth - 2 naked wires going from the earth wire to the grey wires where 2 and 3; and 6 and 7 come from
2 - Black
3 - Red
4 - Red - At the top of 4 and 5 there is a naked wire also coming out of the main grey wire
5 - Brown coming out of a black - At the top of 4 and 5 there is a naked wire also coming out of the main grey wire
6 - Black
7 - Red
The first picture is of the old fitting. The second is the new fitting. The third is the connectors that fell off. And the fourth picture is the wires coming from the ceiling.
Could someone please tell me how I should connect these up? My gut feeling is that the 3 red wires (3,4,7) should be joined together and go to the live connection on the light fitting, the 3 black wires should be connected together and go to the neutral connection on the light fitting and the 3 naked wires should be connected together and insulted and then go to the earth on the light fitting.
Many thanks in advance for any advice given.
