Nice How To Wire A Ceiling Light With 6 Wires Images - The lone black cord with a wirenut on it is the strength coming back from the transfer. This one is warm whilst the transfer is on, lifeless when the transfer is off. Connect this to the black/warm lead for your light fixture.
I then rewired it with out the single black cord and the light got here on however it may not turn off by using the light transfer. The simplest way to show it off is by the principle breaker. I have changed the mild transfer questioning it might had been defective but that did not remedy the hassle.
The two white wires are the impartial (grounded conductor) from the incoming circuit, and the neutral serving the downstream shops. Join these to the white/neutral lead to your mild fixture. I'd probabaly upload a brief pigtail so there's simplest one connection to the neutral on the mild fixture, and additionally so it is that rather more obvious which cord(s) connect to the fixture.
From what i have read, on occasion they would connect c's black cord to put 3 (the alternative purple stay wires) and then c's crimson wire will be the switched-live return from the switch. Connecting the black to the reds might make it obvious to an electrician and that is probably why no twine had crimson-tape on it is cease.
This sounds like older uk wiring (or former colony) wherein pink is commonly warm and black is impartial. The sole black wire is probably a return transfer leg, it ought to were taped crimson, however that is frequently unnoticed. This is why connecting all of the black tripped the breaker. And connecting pink and the black pair makes for an unswitched installation. The single black twine must be linked to the energy side of the fixture and the two other blacks on the impartial aspect.
While most of the people can make educated guesses approximately what the coloring approach on electric wires, i'd propose the use of a multimeter to really test the wires and through a method of removal, determine your stay cord, the return, and floor wires. Too many ceiling packing containers are stressed oddly to have faith in guesses primarily based on twine color.
