Ok so we have a 3 way switch. One for extractor fan one for bathroom light and one for landing. Coming from the ceiling the wires we have are 3 brown 2 blue 1 yellow/green 1 grey with blue sleeve 1 black with brown sleeve. How do we wire them up HELP
There is (Believe it or not) no such code/rule that says "The colours used in two way switching shall be..........." And since you have no safe way of identifying what does what I would suggest you employ the services of a competent person to do the job safely for you. It does NOT have to be an electrician, hence competent person.
I am very much a competent person. As I have replaced both living room lights and kitchen lights. I have not come across a grey with blue sleeve? I know that the browns are love blue neutral yellow green earth and black red sleeve is the switched live.
Mr white, I have now fitted the light fitting with no problems. Got a guide from another forum. I totally understand what a competent is. I believe myself to be such. As I have not only replaced 2 light fittings in my lifetime
