9 Best Wiring Light Fixture Bathroom Solutions - The box for the transfer and gfci regarded simple, two sets of three wires, 1 black, 1 white and 1 ground. One set for the switch and one set for the gfci. The field for the light fixture has 2 black and a couple of white wires.

Once the vintage mild is absolutely removed, decide whether there may be an existing electric box. Older homes are probable no longer to have a junction container. Including one now is sensible for structural reasons in addition to electrical protection. In our case, now not simplest did the existing mild lack a junction box. However the fixture sat off center from the replicate due to a wall stud. Ceiling containers are available as shallow as ½” for placement right over a structural unit like our huge replicate. If your mild isn't always at a wall stud, an “vintage work” protection bins are available with swing out tabs to mount immediately to the drywall.
