I am currently installing new light fittings through out my house (not
rewiring)and have had no problems.
Yesterday I have removed the hallway light to replace it with a new
downlight (non transformer type) only to discover that instead of the
standard 2 groups of wires (+ & - ) this existing fitting has also got
an extra wire into another terminal on the block identified as loop ?.
The problem is that my new fittings only have positions for a positive
and negitive and no extra terminal for a loop ?
Is there a way I can use this fitting or will I have to purchase a
different type ?
I have also discovered that all fittings in this half of the house
(bedrooms ,bathroom) have the same issue. Being a Mechanic and not a
"Cone head"" I'm not sure why half the house is one way and the other
half the other. If this becomes to hard I will just hire an electrician
next time he's available (I live in a country town).
Thanks in advance.
