replace ceiling light

Postby geraldr » Sun Feb 03, 2008 1:03 pm

I am attempting to replace a single light fixing with a 3 bulb fixture bought from a hardware store. From the ceiling there are two sets of wires :-
1. Green, black and red which I have connected to the appropriate E, N, and L on the new fitting.
2. Two red wires which I have connected to the 4th terminal on the new fitting.
When I turn the power on, the lights come on but the light switch does not turn them off
