Hi , 'something not quite right!' read 'Everything not right!'.....
Wiring colours from ceiling not possible combination, there must be other cores tucked up in ceiling! either brown or yellow or more reds, it appears you have your new light connected across sw. lines, have another look and see what else is there, will try to help if more info available , regards SPARX
