Can I Get Power Through a Light Fixture?

Depending upon what you want to run, you can use a pig-nose, screw-in, medium Edison base adapter. But you do not usually get any safety grounding pin, making it potentially dangerous to use with some types of power tools (i.e., those that are not double-insulated). There is also a good possibility that the light fixture is run on a 15-A branch, meaning you can not run much power through that adapter. Finally, you should be aware that the light fixture could have been wired incorrectly, reversing the hot/neutral wires inside the fixture. That means your "hot" terminal Could be "on" even if the switch is off. For the person suggesting using an extension cord: remember it is a violation of code to run an extension cord through a door, window or wall, other than for "temporary use", i.e., while you are actually using a tool. If you are trying to create a permanent outlet for outside use, have an electrician wire a code-compliant, 20A, GFCI, weatherproof outlet for you.

1. What is the ring you screw on an electronic ballast to hold up the light fixture on hanging ceiling lamps?

That should be called a "Ring Nut" I would think.

2. is it easy to change t8 fluorescent light fixture?

It depends on the fixture, if you not sure what you are doing, call a qualified professional electrician to do the work. Much safer and easier on you. If you were able to DIY, you would not be asking here

3. Installing wall mount light fixture - what to do with ground wire

I would simply coil it up neatly and not cut it off. Who knows, you might decide to install it "wired" sometime down the road.Your plug being 2-prong (no ground), I would still be tempted to ground it.

4. How do I wire a light fixture to ceiling box with strange wiring?

Put the plate back unless you have a test lamp or meter and know how to use them. That wiring is not 'strange'. It seems straight forward, but it's been modified, possibly by another amateur. Just at a guess, but a pretty good one: The blacks are 'Line' and the whites are 'Neutral' for a circuit to other boxes. That black/white pair are wiring to the switch that used to control that light. This would need to be tested and the switch located to figure out the wiring involved. For your new fixture, once you've would oped out' the wiring: the black would go to power from the switch, the white to the two whites connected together, and the green ground to the fixture mounting strap. Please do not go hurting yourself. If you do not know what it is, do not mess with it.

5. How to fix leaking light fixture in fiberglass pool. | North Texas Pool Service, Inc.

Today's post covers how to replace the gaskets around a light fixture in a fiberglass pool. The same process applies to vinyl pools but you will have to be careful about the placement of the liner in the repair. You will definitely want to consult the installation manual. One thing right off the bat is when you start to look at doing this repair, you will want to note if you have the 8-hole fixture or the 10-hole fixture. You can see that this fixture is 10 holes / screws. In this picture you can see that a former company put a bunch of hard drying epoxy type substance in an attempt to keep the thing from leaking, so all that had to come off first before we could get a good seal with the new gasket. The new gasket is a totally different material than the old ones. The new kits come with both the vinyl thick gasket and a couple of the cork/fabric type. There is no way to retrofit the foam type of gasket in an existing installation because you need to remove the fixture and line up the front and back pieces. What I am doing here is pulling out the remainder of the old gasket (poking out the sides) while wrapping the fixture in the new gasket, starting at the top. You must keep at least 2 bolts always attached to the rear ring (behind the fiberglass wall of the pool) because if not there is the chance of that ring sliding and you not being able to reattach it. Note also that all the old epoxy and black goopy stuff has been removed. Finally, once the new gasket has been put on, you need to install the chrome ring. The chrome ring is what the light fixture actually attaches too. You have to take the fixture apart because the fixture ring is larger than the chrome ring. When doing this I noticed the nut on the light fixture was almost totally disintegrated. When I grabbed it with the pliers it just fell apart. Chemical maintenance becomes critical in older fiberglass pools as the lining starts leach into the pool water. I do not profess to know the chemistry behind this, but I've seen it a couple times now. The pool water here was so acidic a little cut on my finger started to really burn when submerged. A little trick for the chrome ring, I bought longer SS bolts of the same size as the existing bolts. This allowed me to replace a couple bolts holding the chr ome ring to the retaining ring behind the wall. With that secure I could take out all the other ones without worrying about the retaining ring getting away from me. Once you have all the normal bolts in place you can remove the long ones and put the originals back in. The end result looked very nice I thought.

Why Does a Bulb in My Light Fixture Keep Burning Out?
Why Does a Bulb in My Light Fixture Keep Burning Out?
It happens to me all the time .I think its cheap bulbs1. So... Ehhh... I am trying to put a new light fixture in the bathroom...?Just cap them off. Use the right size wire nuts, stuff them back in the box2. light fixture has white, black, and green my old fixture only has black and white how should i hook it up?old wire = new wire black - black white - white green wire is ground if old had no ground attach new one to junction box for ground.3. How do I change the bulbs in this kind of light fixture? (picture included)?The cover should come off. Try twisting it to the left. Then just change the lightbulb like regular lamps4. If I can switch out an old light fixture for new, should I be able to ....?I really do not like pot lights.....they use more energy and put out less light. If you are needing to put them in because of ceiling clearance I guess that would be the only reason to use them. If you just do not like the ceiling mounted lights. ..try some cool looking 'track lites'. Lot's of different designs...easier to install...and you can direct the light to any needed area5. Can you use a 110v light fixture with a photo sensor or motion sensor in a 220v country if you use a 220v bulb?nope it will burn the sensor out6. Lost power to light fixture and outlets from spilled drink?Here's a tip. Many circuits have a GFCI built into them somewhere up the line. One Master Electrician I worked for always had me put the actual GFCI right under the breaker box, no matter where the protected outlets were located. That way, when someone called him up with a problem, he could tell them where to go . .. LOL. Anyway, that sounds like whats going on here. the GFCI tripped, just as it's supposed to. You have to find it, and reset it. In my kitchen there are two, one's right under the breaker panel, the other is in the wall nearest the door. Do not know where yours mght be. Of course, that surge protector is probably toast, depending on what the drink was and how bad it got hit. I would not trust it again, even if it does work after you reset it. Of course, there is the possibility that one outlet in the line actually got fried, but I doubt that happened.7. how can i hang a bathroom light fixture??.....?Can you drill a new hole in the plate at a different spot? Use toggle bolts or try to hit the stud and use wood screws8. is there anyway to fix a light fixture that has discolored due to too hot of a bulb?You did not say what materials the fixture is made of . Metal, ceramic, colored glass? I do not think bleach would be helpful on most materials since it would only corrode most metals and doing nothing to anything else. You can try some metal polish if it's metal. You may have to come clean and pay for a new fixture or repair of the current one. Or, just leave it and hope the landlord does not notice.9. Can anyone help with hooking up my light fixture?thinks you may need to call electrician10. Can you mix light fixture finishes?Yes...you can. A Swarovski crystal chandelier is a focal centerpiece in the right room or foyer11. how much power is required to run a standard 4 Flourecent Bulb Light Fixture?Jim W is correct. Get a professional analysis. One big variable is whether these are older magnetic ballasts (with T12 lamps) or newer electronic ballasts (T8 lamps).12. in the 2008 ford mustang bullets hid lights is that just the bulb or the whole light fixture?HID lamps are completely different from their halogen counterparts. They require a separate power supply and ballast to strike the arc in the HID bulb. They also require different reflector designs to reduce glare (in fact, using an HID bulb and power supply with a reflector designed for halogen headlights is illegal in most of the world, as it causes unacceptable levels of glare for other drivers). Aftermarket bulbs such as Sylvania Silverstars and other 'blue bulbs' are still halogen and are not true HID systems. Some aftermarket companies offer HID conversions for older, sealed-beam headlights, but composite headlamps like those on the Mustang offer problems because each model requires a different kit to provide a new reflector design.

Charla Huber: Interior Designer Paving Way for Indigenous ...
Charla Huber: Interior Designer Paving Way for Indigenous ...
The first time I saw the work of Indigenous artist and interior designer Connie Watts, Iwas mesmerized. I was at the Songhees Wellness Centre, looking at a beautiful light fixture built in the shape of a canoe with northwest coast Indigenous designs in it. The light fixture was hanging from the ceiling in the boardroom. The lobby of the building displayed photos, etched glass on the doors and even a copper panel representing woven cedar above the reception desk. The interior design and art elements in the building beautifully capture the richness of Indigenous culture, the pride of Indigenous heritage and impressive art elements displayed in a cohesive package. Even the carpet tiles were installed to reflect woven baskets. What Watts does with design is a tangible reflection of what I wish everyone would think of when they think of Indigenous people, history and culture. Watts' work is the best of the best, top-notch and innovative. She works in a variety of media, and it's apparent that she sees no limits to where she can take her art. When I see Watts' art, it halts me in my tracks. Her work is professional, inspiring, innovative and flawless. I believe she is paving the way for Indigenous youth to demonstrate how culture and traditions can be incorporated seamlessly into a professional occupation and be appreciated by people from all walks of life. Every job Watts has taken has included some Indigenous elements, because her work is an extension and reflection of herself; she is proud and honoured to bring West Coast art into everything she does. Elements from her Nuu-chah-nulth, Gitxsan and Kwakwaka'wakw background are rooted in everything she does. "I want people to know that we as Indigenous people are here, we're alive, strong and proud," said Watts. "I like to use emotional concepts and tell a story through Northwest Coast iconography." Watts acknowledges that there are a lot of stereotypes regarding Indigenous people and she wants to challenge these stereotypes and demonstrate the excellence that Indigenous people can offer. "When people hear that I am an Indigenous artist, they always ask me what I carve," said Watts. When Watts was a child, her mother often told her she had a creative gift, even though at the time Watts didn't see her gift. She never thought of herself as a creative person, "just someone who made stuff." As a teen, Watts was a straight-A student and knew she was going to post-secondary education, because that is the way her mother raised her. When it was time to choose her specialty, it was the process of elimination. Watts landed on interior design and headed to the University of Manitoba to attend the best interior-design program she could find. "I didn't really know what interior design was. I thought it was just decorating," Watts said with a laugh. "I learned about systems, architecture, human nature and design." Shortly after graduating university, Watts was involved in a car crash that was the fault of another driver. "I suffered a double skull fracture," she said, explaining she had to relearn how to do most things. "I had a base level of reading and writing, but I don't really remember much from that time." During her recovery, Watts went into the industrial-design program at Emily Carr University of Art and Design. She was having a tough time in school, and then changed her program to study fine arts. "I didn't understand the extent of my brain injury," Watts said. "I chose fine arts to build my brain back up. There are no rules in fine arts; design has a whole list of parameters that need to be followed." It was switching to fine arts that morphed Watts' experience in design to a real cultural expression that displays both purpose-driven features and artistic flare, both with a vibrant, unmistakable Indigenous pride. Watts' big break is a thunderbird sculpture suspended from the ceiling in the Vancouver Airport. Since then, Watts has provided interior design, including many Indigenous elements and art pieces designed by her, for office buildings, public art and private collectors. She teaches courses through Vancouver Island University and has worked on several books, including many Indigenous-language books. In 20 years, I am certain there will be a new generation of Indigenous creative professionals building on the foundation laid by Watts, demonstrating how powerful and well-received Indigenous pride and professionalism can be. Charla Huber is the director of communications and Indigenous relations for M'akola Group of Societies.

Is It Safe to Use Rolled Insulation Around a Recessed Light Fixture?
Is It Safe to Use Rolled Insulation Around a Recessed Light Fixture?
The pink fuzzy stuff sounds like fiber glass and it seems o.k. from what you say. Keep paper away from the fixture, it can overheat and burn.1. Need a tool to screw the ring on a light fixture socket?I had the same problem till I accidentally "welded" a pair of needle nose pliers. They work great and I did not have to throw them away2. Help!! Wiring a new light fixture!?Yes just attach 2 blacks to1 black and same with white and you also just wrap copper wire around ground screw. hopefully the other 2 wires are old and dead or they could be going back to your light switch box who knows? if they were live it should break the breaker switch or blow the fuse pending how old3. Light fixture holes don't align with junction boxThere is no code or rule that says you can not mount a fixture directly to the dry wall. I would use something like a 4" toggle either 1/4 or 3/8. This is one I would run by the AHJ first4. How can I remove this ceiling light fixture to paint.?just remove the screws altogether, even if it pops loose I do not think it will fall hard because it looks pretty light in weight. the center hickey (bolt) is to hold your shade on. once the screws are out if should come down fairly easy.5. How do I remove a pot light and replace it with a regualar light fixture?definite, you should purchase a cheap circuit tracer and use it to locate the most acceptable breaker to de-energize. once you locate the breaker ensure everbody round is conscious that you are engaged on that circuit, and under no circumstances to re-energize any breakers till you are complete mounting and wiring the fan. I also recommend that you replace the mounting bracket and container to help the burden of the recent fan, or once you've get admission to to the attic only bypass up there and upload a 2x4 between the ceiling joists and srew the prevailing container to the 2x4. Then only stick with the academic provided with the recent fan. remember protection 1st even as taking in this challenge, if there's a doubt on your ideas that you wo not be able to do it properly then call a pro. you are able to anticipate that an electrician can carry out this paintings for round one hundred and twenty 5 to one hundred seventy 5 funds, plus round 50 funds for factors, in case you've already got the fan.6. Different light fixture in basement on pull switchThe short answer is yes you can, the easiest way is first to see if all the lights are on 1 breaker (normal wiring) It is possible they could be on 2 or 3 different circuits but again you could still do it with 1 switch (3 phase and some wires). Most basements or all I have worked on are fed from 1 or 2 circuits. Identifying the circuits is the first step. After that it can be as simple as turning all the pull chain fixtures on and interrupting the feed with a simple switch a box on the feed or even at the panel , 2 wires (Romex to a new box) where you install a simple switch). This may be quite easy but we need to know if it is a single circuit and if it is for lighting only.7. how can i remove a broken light bulb from my light fixture?Cut a potato in half, make sure the electric is off, screw potato into fixture, the when fully inserted turn counter clockwise, broken bulb should come out with it8. How do I reinstall a light fixture?Yes it matters for safety sake. The white lead goes to the neutral wire which is the shell of the lamp. The line or hot lead goes to the black or center of the lamp. The ground or green wire goes to the metal case of the fixture.9. can light fixture turn on by itself? we were on the couch when the kitchen light came on by itself.?MY neighbour had the some problem last year the lights were going on and off by them self's, but she went to a medium she never told him about her lights, he told her not to worry when the lights were flicking on and off because it was just her dad who had passed away months before letting her know that he was keeping an eye on her and her family

What Makes a Light Fixture Flicker?
What Makes a Light Fixture Flicker?
loose bulb1. Wiring on a Light Fixture?Wrap the bare copper wire around any mounting screw in the steel box. Are you sure that you have only one white wire? It's possible, but I am a bit surprised. I would expect either two black and two white, or one of each, like your old fixture. If that's really what you've got, both black wires will go together, and to the black wire in the box. The white wire goes to the white wire in the box.2. do I need to install a J box for ceiling light fixture that was connected w/o a J boxe?See what the code requires. I would update to the J box. As Jeff suggested, check with the landlord first3. How do you candle a chucker egg?The cheapest way to create a DIY candler is to place a light bulb (low energy light bulbs are best as you can get a very bright bulb that does not generate as much heat as a conventional bulb) and light fixture inside a cardboard box. Cut a small, round hole in the top of the box, just big enough to sit the pointed end of your egg into. Place your egg onto this hole and turn the light on. You should be able to see what is inside the egg and with practice you will be able to identify fertile eggs by the spider-like blood veins spreading out much like a spider's legs, bad eggs (sometimes called dead germs) where the embryo starts to develop but later died and infertile eggs that are clear except for the shadow of the yolk. Dark shelled eggs are much harder to see through so you will need the brightest light source you can get and if you still can not tell, you will have to wait longer until the embryo has developed further and can be seen more easily. Eggs are normally tested after 5 to 7 days of incubation. The most critical period of incubation during the development of the embryo is the first week so it is best to be patient and only take a look after the first week. You will see more after a week and can be more certain about the fertility.4. The light bulb broke and is stuck in the socket. How do I remove it?This Site Might Help You. RE: The light bulb broke and is stuck in the socket. How do I remove it? This is on a pendulum (hanging) light fixture. I unscrewed the old bulb and removed it, only to find that the silver base is still in the socket. I have tried using pliers, but it is too pliable and it breaks off. I have also tried using a potato, but that doesn't work either. What else...5. What size light fixture over a rectangular dining room table, 90x37?Are we talking inches, feet, metric measurements?? It would also depend on the rest of your room and how much lighting comes from other sources--how high the light fixture is --ceiling light--hanging light--style--how many light bulbs and how much light the fixture gives out. I think you need to shop around.6. What can I use to manage the wires when replacing a looped ceiling rose light fixture with one that just has loose wires?Yes, it's possible to buy connector boxes that fit three or more wires. One vendor that makes them is WAGO, see their products pageI am sure there are other brands, too, that was just one recommended on a DIY forum7. How can I mount a light fixture onto my bathroom mirror.?There should be a round/square metal box with the wires inside it and a 3" diameter hole in the mirror. If the hold ia only 1" or so, you should make sure that there is a junction box. Call a glass company and ask if they can come an cut the hole in the mirror larger. If there is no box, you can a remodelling style box that will clamp to the edge of the drywall and then be able to support the weight of a light fixture properly. Good luck!8. Can I get power through a light fixture?The outside light probably is on a different fuse, than the inside lights. But with some rewiring you should be able to use the wires behind the light. If you are not really that good at electrics, I would tend to get some professional help, just in case. As for the adaptor, I have never seen one that adapts a light bulb into a plug socket sooo....

Why Does My New Switch Keep Tripping the Breaker?
Why Does My New Switch Keep Tripping the Breaker?
You have a new-style switch loop -- the current (2014) NEC now requires switch loops to have a neutral, not just a hot and a switched. Switch the black and red wires on the light, and the white and red wires on the switch -- this means the light goes to red and white, and the switch goes to black and red, with the white wire in the switch box capped off with a wirenut.(The reasoning behind the new requirement is to allow future timers, dimmers, and other such "smart" switching devices to be designed in a more sane manner where they can draw power for their own operation in a normal way, instead of trying to turn their load on slightly at all times or sending that working current back through the equipment grounding system.).I am attempting to enable a light switch in a bedroom that had the wiring but had no ceiling light fixture and no switch (just a blank plate). However, I am running into an issue and I want to seek some help from those more experienced.In the ceiling I have 5 wires - 2 white, 2 black, 1 red (and, of course ground). In the switch box there is a cable that goes up to the ceiling that has 1 white, 1 black and 1 red. There is also another cable that goes down to an outlet. It has 1 black and 1 white. Currently the red is capped off, the two black wires are joined and two white wires are joined together.I wired the switch by creating a rabbits ear for the black and connected it to switch. I created a rabbits ear for white and connected it to the switch.In the ceiling I added the white cable of the light to the grouping of 2 white cables and did the same for the black cables. The light was on but would trip the breaker within seconds.I am using a single-pole Lutron switch.

Just Replaced Old Light Fixture and New One Will Not Turn Off.?
Just Replaced Old Light Fixture and New One Will Not Turn Off.?
Disconnect the blacks from the fixture, cap them together. Put a piece of black tape on the single white wire and connect it to the fixture black wire. Then turn the power on and test the circuit. What you did was connect the line to the light fixture and did not connect the switch. Properly wired the white from the switch should go to the line lead and it should be marked with a color tape not green or white. The black should then connect to the light fixture. The white should be marked in the switch box also. Luke please read the answer carefully. 2nd line tells where to connect it. Test by turning the switch on.1. How bad is it to hook up a light fixture and forget to hook up the ground wire?You specific? There would desire to a minimum of be a floor lug on the fixture...which you would be able to connect your present floor twine to. If no longer, to no longer concern if fixture is indoors. Fixture comparable colored wires. ..: one to white, the different to black.2. how to remove stuck globe on light fixture that has a bolt and does not screw in?Try squirting a little bit of WD40 around the base of the globe, let it sit a few minutes, then gently try to remove it. Take your time when removing it. Spray more WD40 if necessary. If you do not have any WD40 in the house, use cooking spray. (ex:Pam)3. light fixture has white, black, and green my old fixture only has black and white how should i hook it up?Your new fixture's green wire is a ground wire. It needs to be screwed to the inside of the electrical box to act as a ground if no ground wires are in the conduit. Now, the fixture should still work with just the white to white and black to black. If it does not , test whether you have power to the circuit.4. Light fixture buzzing soundIt is NOT the ground. This is not audio equipment, so let's rule that out. What kind of lamps (bulbs) are they? You say there are only three so we can also rule out an overloaded dimmer. Also, you say it is the same dimmer you've used before. What brand and model number is it?5. changing a ceiling light fixture?connect all the black together and all the white together and take out the ground6. How do you convert a pull cord light fixture to a wall switch?It wo not . You will need to run more wires7. What is the part of a light fixture that connects to the ceiling?That would be called the canopy, that's the part that covers the box and wires. But you could also be talking about the crossbar or hanger that attaches to the electrical box with screws. Go to Home Depot or Lowe and where they have stuff like ceiling fans and light fixtures, you can find a kit that will have all the screws and stuff you need. Then buy the canopy to match your light fixture. Should cost about $10 for all of the stuff8. How to permanently remove a light fixture on the bathroom wall?I do not know UK codes but most areas require you to put a cover that allows the wires to be accessed after disconnecting them and capping. This cover cannot be permanently patched over9. Where can i get a grow light fixture?Home Depot can help you there. They sell the bulbs and can help with the rest of it. I receive more help from Home Depot with whatever I need10. Changing light fixture with 2 switches?make sure you have 3-way switches11. How do you replace a light fixture in a 2 story foyer?Get a REALLY tall ladder12. How do I change the Light fixture?If the house was built in '63' and you have no ground wire, you will have a metallic junction box. That's your ground. You hardware vendor will have grounding screws. Just ground the fixture to the box.13. Replace Light Fixture with outletWithout poking around in there with a probe, there's no way to tell what is going on. There might be an always hot power source, but there also might not be. You will have to run some tests.The other issue, is that the box is potentially too full to add a receptacle. You will have to do a box fill calculation, but it looks fairly stuffed. If it is too full, you will have to install a separate box, or install an extension ring on this box. Lastly. There's no way to know the capacity of this circuit, without knowing the breaker size, and everything else that's on the circuit.

Replaced Ceiling Light Wont Turn Off
Replaced Ceiling Light Wont Turn Off
My guess is that your outlets were wired as split outlets; the top receptacle was switched with the wall switch, and the bottom was always hot. By default, outlets have the top and bottom receptacles connected together, so when you hooked them up, you made the upper outlet (and the light) always on.The fix is simple; remove the outlet, and on the hot (black) side, you will find a bit of metal that connects the upper screw to the lower screw. Break that off with some pliers, and things will be okay. You will need to do this on all of the outlets that are wired this way• Related QuestionsHow can I wire this ceiling light correctly?Wiring colour conventions can vary worldwide, so as you don't state where you are located, it's not possible to give a definitive answer.In the UK for example (for single phase wiring), convention would have the live wire as brown (new colour) or red (old colour) and the neutral wire as blue (new colour) or black (old colour). It was not uncommon to see appliances using the new colours while fixed wiring still used the old colours, until the new colour scheme was adopted for fixed wiring (around 2004).If you are in any doubt at all, sound advice would be to contact a competent electrician to do the work for you------Should light fixture with outlet be grounded to metal box?You should ground to the box, the light, and the outlet if they are metal and you are able, i.e. it has a ground wire or ground screw.There is no harm in pigtailing off a short piece of wire to ground everything you can; it'd be worth it if anything were to ever short out.And since I'm unsure by your post, I'll clarify this.. just because an outlet has 3 prongs does that mean that it is grounded. You still have to run a ground wire to it to make it grounded. Same concept as that the receptacle wouldn't be powered until a hot wire were ran to it.------How to hang modern fixture over old square recessed box?I realize this is old, but I want to share my experience with these fixtures. They make conversion kits, but I couldn't find one large enough to cover the old 14" square fixture. I made my own conversion kit out of a 16" wood circle with a ceiling electrical box mounted in the center. I removed the old socket and hardware from the recessed box. There was enough slack on the electrical wire to run to the new ceiling box. I painted the wood, screwed it to the studs, and installed a standard fixture. This won't work for everyone, but it works for me. Don't be stupid, turn off the electricity------If I want to create a bohemian farmhouse style, what things should I be looking at to buy?I would recommend that you keep any builtins like cabinets and kitchen island in the Farmhouse style. Also the big pieces of furniture: sofas, beds, dining table.Then look for bright patterned bohemian fabric items: drapes, pillows, bedspreads. Light fixtures and lamps and other accessories can go either way, depending on what you find balances the specific area the best. Avoid obvious Farm wall hangings like Eggs 4 Sale signs. These will pull to much to that style.This picture leans a little more to Country, but it is a very warm and welcoming space. ------There is a large spider above my work desk, does my employer have any obligation to get rid of it for me or move me?In the most of the (civilized) world, it is in the obligation of the employer to provide a clean and safe work environment. I assume that most companies by default take care of daily cleaning the floors and the bathrooms, and periodically the windows.However, some "small, occasional inconveniences" cannot be caught by these routine activities.In this case, you have two choices:Such occasional problems include:or move me?It is extremely unlikely that the company would keep the spider web safe by finding you another work place. Unfortunately, it is almost certain that a certain spider will become homeless. Even worse: lifeless - depending on its luck.------Light fixture box has 3 sets of wires and Im confusedSo your box has only 3 cables. That means it's most likely wired up like thisIt looks like you nutted the wires all together. So somewhere in there you have a hot and a switched hot. When you flip your switch, you're creating a bridge between the hot and neutral, and thus your circuit breaker trips because you hit that max amperage instantly.The good news here is that you can see the cables and where they go. What you need to do is follow the cables and label them. Then we're going to modify the box as suchThis will correct the problem of your breaker popping when you flip the switch.------What is an LED luminaire?An LED lamp or LED light bulb is an electric light for use in light fixtures that produces light using one or more light-emitting diodes (LEDs). LED lamps to have a lifespan many times longer than equivalent incandescent lamps, and are significantly more efficient than most fluorescent lamps, with some LED chips able to emit up to 303 lumens per watt (as claimed by Cree and some other LED manufacturers).However, LED lamps require an electronic LED driver circuit when operated from mains power lines, and losses from this circuit mean the efficiency of the lamp is lower than the efficiency of the LED chips it uses. ------What was one of the worst home remodeling trends that people later regretted?I would say in the uk during the 1960s the trend for modernising old houses, especially Victorian/Edwardian stock by ripping out all the decorative features was pretty bad.Fireplaces, sconces, light fixtures, tile floors were all at risk of ending up in landfill.For the last couple of decades such features have become very desirable, with many people buying back such features in salvage to restore them. I was lucky in the first apartment I renovated as the previous owner had only boxed the fireplaces in behind hardboard and buried the cast iron in the garden rather than do it properly.------Ceiling fan works with rheostat switch but not with single poleThe MA-FQ4M dimmer doesn't dim its output directly -- it's designed to communicate over the powerline with a compatible canopy module instead, which is why it didn't dim your chandelier. It shouldn't cause your fan to hum when used with the proper canopy module, though -- I'd suspect that your real problem is with the fan itself (perhaps the windings are slightly loose inside the fan motor or something like that).As to why the fan didn't work with a single pole switch, I suspect it's because the canopy module wasn't seeing the right signals to turn the fan on. Either that, or you simply goofed when you wired the switch------4 bulb light fixture troubleSince you are not blowing any fuse I expect that that the fixture is equiped with low voltage halogen bulbs. Let us assume that the original bulbs were 10W than the power supply has to supply 40 W. If you replaced the bulbs with 15W than with 3 bulbs you reach 45W thereby not invoking the internal protection of the power supply. When you place 4 bulbs you reach 60W and the internal protection of the supply switches the lamps of. So verify if the wattage of the bulbs is the same as the original. If more than you need to return to the lower wattage. If correct than the power supply has a problem------Wiring IKEA light fixture into old fixtureDo you have a double switch on the wall? The red and black wires in a three core at a light fitting are usually intended to be separate feeds for a fan plus lighting fixture. If you look behind the switch you may find the red and black commoned together there too, if a double switch wasn't fitted. Usually the unused one is just capped off at the light fitting with a wire nut, but it doesn't matter if the two are paralleled.For the new fixture, white connects to the neutral (ribbed wire), blackred stay commoned and go to the other wire, and the yellow/green to the bare wire------Light fixture has 3 white wires together, 2 black together, and one by itself, how do I connect a new fixture?Do you have a photo from before the old fixture was removed fully?You need a hot plus a neutral for a light.Likely the bare black wire is your hot switch lead, something you can verify with a non-contact circuit tracer (a tool you should own for safety sake, for example Klein NCVT-1). The white neutrals often get all tied together, don't worry about overthinking that one too much, just hook your white there.The connected hots might be some totally other circuit using this box as a waypoint. Unless there are more lights run by the same switch, or something else, it's best to just ignore them and move on.------The clock with a light fixture.In simpler terms, the state of the clock is an element of $V:Bbb F_2^12$, and by manipulating the clock hands, we can add any element of the form $v_i:e_ie_i1e_i2$, $1le ile 12$, where $e_1,ldots, e_12$ form the canonical basis and $e_13e_1$, $e_14e_2$ is understood.Let $Wsubseteq V$ be the subspace spanned by the $v_i$. Then the problem statement asks if $e_1e_2in W$.In this form, the problem is readily solved: Each $v_i$ is orthogonal to $$e_1e_3e_4e_6e_7e_9e_10e_12,$$ hence so are all $win W$, but $e_1e_2$ is not.------How can I add a 3-way switch to my light? (confused about existing wiring)Assuming this is the setup you have described:You will need to pull a new 12/3 cable to your new 3-way switch. You will also have to replace your existing switch with a 3-way switch. Your wiring setup will look like this:Because your lighting circuit's power is supplied by a conductor in a 12/3 cable, the figures above were modified as follows:POWER SOURCE / 2-Wire Romex with Ground (i.e. 12-2) - I modified these to show your 12/3 wire with your RED supplying the power to your lighting circuit (since you described the BLACK in your 12/3 as being spliced into a bunch of other black conductors). From here, everything else should be one-to-one------Can I add another cable to this 3-gang electrical box?What size box is it? It should either have a volume printed on it, or will be a standard size. Without knowing the box volume, we can't give you a definitive answer. Assuming it's all 12 AWG, it's at least (12 (current carrying conductors) 1 (grounds) 4 (device fill)) * 2.25 38.25 cu. in. currently. Adding another two conductor cable with ground would require an additional 4.5 cu. in. For a total of 42.75 cu. in., not counting any clamp fill not mentioned.As long as the box is larger than this, you'll be okay. Note that if you put the third device in, you'll have to add another 4.5 cu. in.See this answer for more detail on box fill calculations------What should I consider regarding recessed lighting above kitchen sink?If you've got insulation in the ceiling, you'll need to get IC (insulation contact) rated fixtures -- they're also known as closed-can. I have a small soffet built over my sink; if yours is similar, make sure that the fixture you select will fit. Other than that, don't exceed the wattage for the fixture and you'll be OK.EDIT: On second thoughts, use an IC rated fixture regardless of whether or not you have insulation. Over a sink, you're likely to have a lot of steam and if it's an open-can fixture, the stack effect is going to draw much of it up into the space over the ceiling------Is it generally safe to use a lower wattage bulb in a light fixture? (Specifically Halogen bulbs)AFAIK, bulbs with a GU-10 base are driven directly from electrical mains, in which case it's OK to use a lower-power bulb. Your fixture won't reach the temperatures that it's capable of withstanding.The only place that I know of that it might not be OK is with low-voltage (usually 12V or 24V) lighting systems such as track or task lighting: some transformers have a minimum power output that they like to supply, so if you use lower wattage bulbs, you should use more of them to compensate (somewhat defeating the purpose). If this applies, you would have an entry for Minimum power on the specifications for the lighting system

What Should I Do with the Grounding Wire When Connecting an Ungrounded Light Fixture?
What Should I Do with the Grounding Wire When Connecting an Ungrounded Light Fixture?
You do nothing with it. What you are doing violates electrical code and invalidates the UL listing of the components. However, most light fixtures do not require ground wires because they are "double insulated", so you will just tuck it away or cut it short1. Power outlets stopped working after installing a new light fixture in room?take the ficture down and see what wires are there if theres 4 a black white green and red the red wire is your traveler to the outlets connect it with the black wires and the whites together and then connect your ground..that should do it2. What could be wrong with my fluorescent light fixture? ?Older flourescent lights had a little silver canister that plugged in, It was called a "starter" and caused the initial pulse to ionize the bulb and make it light. Problem could be the ballast, bulb, starter, wiring, switch or circuit breaker. Time to do a little troubleshooting3. Need help with light fixture wiring!?stop and talk to or refer to a pro electrician or a website dedicated to the trade. Wiring a three way switch is difficult at best to explain without diagrams, and a misswired three way will cause problems and or fire. A three way switch requires that you tie the red line to the white wire in one box and the black wire in the other box. It's called a traveler wire, and you really need diagrams to do them4. Installing bathroom light fixture 2 black and 2 white wires?try using a multi meter to see if there is a voltge when you flip the swich5. How bad is it to hook up a light fixture and forget to hook up the ground wire?Do not worry, your neutral shares the ground bus in the panel box6. My bedroom doesn't have a light fixture?By code there has to be either a ceiling fixture, or a half-hot receptacle in the room, controlled by a wall switch that's reachable when you open the bedroom door. Is there a switch? If so, find which half of which receptacle it controls, and plug a floor lamp into that. If there's no switch, it's not a real bedroom, and if you own the house, you should fix it right. If you are renting, depending on your relationship with the landlord and the amount you are paying, you could bring it to the owner's attention7. Is this damaged light fixture safe?leave it an make sure ur insurance is payed up-make this top priority of things to do and get it fixed, or die waiting8. I turned the switch off and then proceded to change the light fixture and got knocked on my butt.----WHY?Most likely the hot wire was connected directly to the fixture and the neutral wire was used at the switch. So when you touched the hot wire and then grounded your self... well you basically got tazed for a second.9. Can you change the light out of an aquarium light fixture?Need to know more.Is it a screw on bulb,or if it has two pins on the ends. incandescent or fluorescent. look online at an aquarium parts website. go from there10. How do you replace a light fixture I guess I need to know about wiring?this is the best place to learn how to do home repairs hope it helps11. I have a ceiling light fixture that is not controlled by a light switch and doesn't have a pull string,so.....?If the light works now you can switch the fixture to one with a pull chain but seems like you would know that maybe give more detail of what he did12. Where can I buy a ballast for a circular fluorescent light fixture that uses 1x 32 and 1x 40 watt bulbs?9 times out of 10 you can buy an entire fixture, including the ballast and tubes, for less than the ballast alone. Since those fixtures are not that common you would also probably have better luck finding the whole thing, too. Good luck and enjoy!13. Does a pool light fixture itself usually have holes in it to allow water to fill around the pool light?Well I am no expert but I can tell you ours is not like that. Ours has the cylinder that houses the fixture that the bulb goes into. There is an electrical current that connects to that . The ring holds the glass onto the cylinder and then the whole thing snaps into place. Water does not go into it that I am aware of. You should look on the internet for a schematic of a in ground pool lighting system as I have only seen ours taken out and put back in. I never did it for myself so I could very well be wrong. (But I do not think so)

We Have a Medicine Cabnet Light Fixture, the Medicne Cabnet Is Part of the Fixture?
We Have a Medicine Cabnet Light Fixture, the Medicne Cabnet Is Part of the Fixture?
The switch is bad. You can either remove the fixture and replace the cord and switch or cut the cord above the switch and splice another cord and switch using the right size wire nuts. Where the fixture is mounted, there should be a nut holding the fixture to the cabinet on the inside1. How to remove circular light fixture to replace bulb?The dark part does spin/rotate and release. It's probably just stiff.2. Where can I find this light fixture to purchase? Help :)?Find an electrical or lighting dealer with a lighting showroom (I used to work for one) and bring them a photo of the chandelier you like. They will have a lot of catalogs and be able to match or at least closely match the style. Usually you will get better prices and service there than you will by trying to buy on line.3. How do you open this dome light fixture?The center piece at the bottom of the glass cover needs to be removed. Clean it with some windex and wash your hands and dry them. You should then be able to grip it and turn it counter clockwise until it comes off of the threaded rod. Make sure to support the glass with one hand or it will fall to the floor!4. How do you change a light fixture?super simple, make sure power is off first, take old fixture off, should be 3 wires, black white and copper, connet new fixture to same colors, twist on wire nuts, pull slightly to make sure they are secure, screw new fixture on, turn on power and wha la5. Electrical help light cant get light fixture to work?Make sure you have all white wires twisted together going to the one on your fixture6. How do I connect a grounding wire for a light fixture?Should be a green colored screw that you attach the copper (uncoated) wire to. Please make sure the power is off to that cuircut7. can a light fixture run off the same breaker as wall outlets?Yes it can,sounds as though your plan will work fine8. Why does my new ceiling fan/light fixture buzz.?Mine buzzes. Ive found that its the light bulbs just touching the outside edge of the holders. Once moved in a bit, it stops buzzing9. How should I connect the ground wire for my light fixture?I would connect both coppers wires together via the green screw. I would also ensure that the copper on supply side is longer than hot and neutral, that way if there is a breakage it is most likely the hot or neutral that snaps and if it shorts to any metal work on the lamp it will go to earth/ground10. How do I change the bulbs in this kind of light fixture? (picture included)?This is the breakout type. Put on saferty glasses and hit with a hammer. Get a new snap in glass cover from Home Depot. They will know what you are talking about.11. How can I tell which flourescent light bulb fits into my strip flourescent light fixture?You need an F70T8. You could take cover off fixture and verify off of the ballast but it may have listings for several bulbs on it. The 660 watt is the rating on the socket, not the bulb size. It is an odd size bulb so you may have to go to a local electrical supply house to find. I doubt Home Depot or Lowes has this size12. 2 light switches controlling one light fixture?You need a "three-way switch".The red wire is called a "traveller".Searching for these terms will find suitable wiring diagrams13. What is correct height for light fixture ove dining table?High enough so that the tallest person at your table does not whack his head when he stands up14. Wall Mounted Light Fixture Mounting PlateYou need to adjust the screws so they protrude from the front of the bracket just enough to secure the fixture to the wall with the included cap nuts. Then cut off the part with the screw heads, flush with the back of the bracket. Good luck.Many wire cutters/strippers have the ability to cut this size bolt and protect the threads.

Expert Picks for Outdoor Lighting
Expert Picks for Outdoor Lighting
Outdoor lighting is often an afterthought in exterior facelifts and landscape designs, something not remembered until the plants are dug, the deck is built and the house is repainted. If you find yourself in this kind of dark spot, don’t despair: We talked to professionals for some simple ideas that will make a big, bright impact. First, a few basic rules: 1. Take your home’s architectural style into account: If you have a formal brick Colonial, for example, says David Benton, an architect at Maryland’s Rill Architects, stick with traditional porch pendants and wall sconces. “I think it’s always key to keep things simple,” he says. “They look more elegant that way.” If you have a house that’s a bit more modern, you can play with something contemporary, or even funky or farmhouse style. 2. Don’t undersize your lights. Do you have a large front yard? Make sure your light fixtures are large enough that they can be seen from the street. Benton says he tends to go “just a little bit larger” than he thinks he’ll need to. 3. Think about the big picture. Once you’ve got the front lighting set, think about how much total lighting you want to do. “You want to err on the side of subtle,” says Mark Oxley, president of Outdoor Illumination in Bethesda. “It’s better to start with less. Then you add to it if you think it’s not enough.” ●It’s important to take into account your house’s style, especially when looking for front-entry lighting, says David Benton, an architect at Bethesda’s Rill Architects and the lead architect for the 2014 D.C. Design House’s facade. For a Colonial, rambler or mid-century modern house, Benton likes the Lakehouse wall-mount lantern in Americana Bronze. “It’s a utilitarian fixture that can go either contemporary or traditional. Perfect for over a garage or mudroom door.” ($390, www.barnlightelectric.com)●Karen Olson Weaver, who specializes in exterior and landscape lighting as principal lighting designer of Olson Weaver Lighting in Alexandria, uses gas lamps in her projects in older neighborhoods such as Georgetown and Kalorama. Plow & Hearth’s Old Brooke light, in three colors and sizes, is inspired by early gaslight design but uses a bulb. For sizing, Benton says that a good rule of thumb for lights flanking a front door is that they should each be a quarter of the size of the door. If you only have one, it should be a third of the size of the door. ($44.95-$84.95, www.plowhearth.com) ●Put candles in Terrain’s copper Mansard lantern and you’ll get the comfort of flickering light. If you prefer to avoid the mess of fire and wax, try battery-operated LED candles, Olson Weaver suggests. “At some point, things have to be practical,” she says ($68-$98, www.shopterrain.com).●Benton likes retro-inspired string lights, such as World Market’s Edison-style 10-bulb string lights, for creating a “party atmosphere” that you can leave up all summer. “These are really fun on a deck, crisscrossed overhead. It’s a nice general light, and they’re festive as well,” he says. ($24.99, www.worldmarket.com)●“When you bring lighting outside, people are drawn to that,” Olson Weaver says. “It’s an inexpensive way to create another space in your house. You could have no chairs on your terrace, and you could put a little lantern out there, and the whole party will move out there.” She likes NotNeutral’s Season metal lantern (in four colors and three sizes) and says that it would be a good lantern to hang on shepherd’s crooks around the garden or next to a grill ($54-$162, www.allmodern.com).●Pendants look nice in multiples over a dining table on the porch, Olson Weaver says. With a more unusual design, you’ll want to see them in person to check the dimensions and material quality, she says, but Design Within Reach’s pendant barn lamp would be pretty safe to order on the Web because it’s a pretty basic design — hard to go wrong ($315, www.dwr.com). ●Like the look of a pendant but don’t have a porch ceiling? Olson Weaver also hangs pendants from archways, pergolas and even trees (for instance when the tree limbs extend over a bench). “From the terrace looking out, it creates a visual focal point,” she says. “It draws the eye out there.” Bocci’s cast-blown glass 14 Series outdoor pendant seems elemental in nature — ideal for creating an idyll in the garden. ($370-$385, www.lumens.com)●Before ordering a light fixture for the outdoors, make sure that it’s designed to withstand the elements, Olson Weaver says. The Superior Moravian Star hanging light in clear, rippled glass or white glass is rated for a damp location (meaning it can be outdoors but not exposed to water — on a covered patio, for example). “Just one of these fixtures would make any outdoor space heavenly,” Benton adds ($455, www.shadesoflight.com).●Mark Oxley, president of Bethesda outdoor-lighting firm Outdoor Illumination, seconds Olson Weaver’s recommendation to see and touch fixtures in showrooms before ordering. He also recommends buying a brand known for quality and dependability, such as Hadco or Kichler. Kichler’s cast-brass deck light would add sophisticated safety lighting to stairs and decks ($76, www.kichlersuperstore.com).●String lights make a big impression without a complicated installation. Pottery Barn’s cafe string lights in bronze or galvanized metal would be a great tool to define a patio or seating area in a larger outdoor space ($39.50-$89, www.potterybarn.com).●Path lights are a pragmatic way to create ambiance outdoors. “There are a lot of different styles that can be really functional but also be fun,” Oxley says. “But if you’re doing something fun, you want to be careful because that cute little acorn light can look great one or three times, but if you put 12 of them along a walkway, it can get out of hand.” Kichler’s copper path lights make for a subtle style statement ($184).●Solar-powered fixtures might be best if electricity is a challenge. Soji’s hanging solar lantern is made of heavy-duty nylon and collects sunlight in the day to create a glow at night. It also comes with LEDs, a battery and a base-unit accessory to convert it into a tabletop lantern ($19.99, www.allsopgarden.com). ●Benton, Oxley, and Olson Weaver all love string lights for a festive option that works no matter the season. The star shape of Luna Bazaar’s white organza string lights is a fun twist on the standard string lights. But make sure to bring them inside after a party; they shouldn’t get wet ($33.50, www.lunabazaar.com). See 13 great options for outdoor lights Roberts is a freelance writer.
