Multiple Interconnected Wires in Ceiling Rose?

Postby Trooper72 » Sat Feb 24, 2018 6:44 pm

Howdy all,

Was about to replace light in the hall that hangs from the ceiling. I was expecting 3 wires in the existing one, and, upon removal of the existing fitting found a horrendous mess.

It seems the earth is being made from two other wires (brown and blue) with an earth casing and there are more Brown wires that expected.

Does anyone care to explain this as it's made me now totally want to call in a sparkle to do what should be a simple job.

Just checked another ceiling light and it's the same situation.

I would suggest that as your post makes no sense, and there are no pictures, I would suggest you call a competent person to do the job for you.
