I have recently bought and installed a ceiling fan which also has a light
attatched to it. When I came to fit it I was a bit unsure of how the wiring
went because there wasn't just the red and black and Earth wire to connect
but 3 red wires 3 black wires and an earth wire that hung from the ceiling.
Looking at the old light fitting and the wiring to it, the 3 red wires were
all in the same housing so I joined all these together and taped them up.
The 3 remaining Black wires I wired up as follows, 1 thin Black wire went in
the Neutral connection and the other thin Black wire and the other Black
wire with a thick flex to it I wired up to the live terminal. The light and
fan seem to work as it should do etc... but upon leaving it running for a
while the other night there was a strong fishy smell coming from it and I
was wondering if I had wired it up correctly? I have taken the fan back off
and looked for something burning but cannot see anything.
Can anyone tell me if I have wired it up wrongly or correctly please?
