Re: pendant connection

Good morning Mr White,

Case solved !

Many thanks for getting back to me. As a layman I always seek to push the wire in as far as possible in the belief that it makes for the best connection.

Lesson learned !!

pendant connection

Afternoon all,

I removed the light pendant in our lounge for the ceiling to be plastered. When I went to reconnect, the light doesn't work. The light is served by 2 switches and the wiring from the ceiling in my photo is exactly as it was before the light was removed.
Grateful for advice please !

Thanks folks - the pattern on the underside of the tiles meant that I couldn't use the 2mm spacers but to be honest, certainly on the floor, the bigger ones look fine.
Once again, thanks for getting back to me.

Thanks Blakey and ericmark

I think it was spelled out to me quite clearly - you don't mess around with electrics!
My son has a mate who's an electrician so he's coming over on the weekend.
Thanks again to you both.
