Down Stairs Lights

by perryhogan » Thu Feb 19, 2009 10:42 am

We moved into our new house but could not get the lights working. We changed the light and need some help with the wires. We have 3 sets of cables coming into the front room. We have one earth, one black with red sleeve, and 3 reds and 2 blacks. Have managed to put the red onto the Swithced Live but it permantly stays on by using the fuse box. And all the other lights down stairs do not work. The block on the light runs Brown (L), Green Yellow (Earth), Blue (N) and 4th block for termination. Any ideas??

Very common problem.
Look at the projects section of this site Re changing a light fitting.
There you'll find diagrams which explain wiring configuration.
