Replacing bedroom ceiling light... Arghhhhh..........

Postby Roofless » Mon Sep 22, 2008 6:00 pm

Im trying to replace the ceiling light in an upstairs room with a 3 spotlight light. I noticed there are 2 NEUTRAL wires, 1 LIVE, 1 EARTH and 3 red LOOP wires. These are all fitted inside the rose in the attached terminal block. The new light only has a 4 way terminal block attached. Been to Homebase and they only sell 6 way terminal blocks! Anything I can do?? Im a desperate woman!!

Not sure why you need more than 4 terminals? There are quite a number of drawings and instructions in the Projects section or if you can't understand them there is and right at the bottom of page may help you out.
Do make sure you don't get switch and loop wires mixed up.
