I would like to replace 2 existing ceiling rose pendants in my kitchen with two new ceiling lights(a 3 spot flush mount and a hanging lamp). My question is can I do this or do I need to have an electrician wire them up and sign it off? Or, can I wire them up and have an electrician sign it off if that's building regs? Had a look at the Part P regs, but still a little confused.
Hope this makes sense, thanks.
yep, this constitutes a like forlike replacement so can be DIyed, just make a note of what cables go where. if the loop is in the light it can be confusing if you don't get it right, appologies if you already know this.
A friend of mine changed the lights for me 4 or 5 days back. Last night the bulb went on it as I turned on the switch(breaker did not trip). I thought it was just the bulb(brand new), but I put in a new bulb this morning and after 5 minutes or so, the bulb began to flitter on and off. I switched off the lights in the kitchen once I saw that.
Can anyone suggest any possible problems when he wired it up or can it just be another bad bulb? Thanks again.
either a loose connection at fittings terminal or if a bayonet type lamp a stuck pin,( not usual on a new fitting).
would get connections checked ASAP & wise not to use until done,
