Find Answers to the Hottest Questions About Light Fixture

Considering that light fixture may still be new to many people, we provide ten common questions and answers about light fixture for you to get started.

1. how hard it is to install a ceiling fan, in place of a regular chandelier type light fixture?

On a scale of 1 to 5, I would give it a 3. The hard part is taking out the old box as they are not rated for ceiling fans. You then have to buy a ceiling fan box kit, which has a spreader bar and box. You also have to know which way your ceiling joists run

2. How do you install a light fixture in a bedroom?

Not enough information. Is it a new install or a replacement? For a new install you will want a licensed electrician. For a replacement you install the new one the same way the old one was installed

3. I have a ceiling light fixture box with 3 white wires and 3 black wires. How do I hook up the wires to fixture?

Typically all whites get tied to each other as do all blacks. The grounds get tied together as well. As you install lights fixtures in each box the black from each fixture get wired to the black and the white to the white. The light fixtures may have a green wire which goes to the ground wire or the fixture may also have a copper ground wire so it goes to the ground. Considering all the excess wires you have it suggests that that switch operates other lights also. However you may want to do some testing just to make sure where all those wires go. Get yourself a current tester and turn on the current to the circuit before connecting any wires together. This makes sure you know where the current is coming from. Turn the current back off and then connect the wires you know to be hot to any set or pair of the other wires and turn the juice back on and again use the tester to see where current is going to. Do that to all pairs of wires in the boxes one set at a time until you know where everything is going. You may have to test wall receptacles or other outlets to find where all that extra stuff goes to

4. How do you install a light fixture in a bedroom?

if its a replacement then turn off the power, remove the old one and when you put the new light up black wires go to the brass colored screws and white wires go to the silver screws.the ground or green or bare wire goes to the green screw.turn the power on and your in business

5. Installing replacement light fixture with wrong amount of connections!?

Chances are that the light is on a three way switch. Did the previous owners take out a switch and thus the black and white are tied together to complete the circuit? It is difficult to tell what a previous owner did. You might want to call an electrician to prevent a fire hazard.

6. How should I connect the ground wire coming out from a new light fixture to the ground wire attached to the metal box?

Connect it up in such a way that if someone manages to pull the fixture off the ceiling, the ground wire is the last to break

7. Water coming out of light fixture?

if u have an attic / pull down stairs take a bucket up there... turn off the power to all wiring that is getting wet...

8. Can I use a 400 watt HPS bulb in a run-of-the-mill grow light fixture?

If you have an MH system now you will have to change the ballast to use a HPS grow light. HSP bulbs are very low in the blue spectrum and if you do not have axillary lighting to supply that spectrum your plants will grow very leggy

9. Did you have a shortage of plug-ins and have cords coming down from the light fixture in the ceiling?

No, do you? Maybe if I lived in the woods in a home made shack. Run a line from accross the street. Hillbilly style. Or maybe a house trailer in one of those trailer parks!

I Bought a 30'' 130 Watt Odyssea Light Fixture with Cooling Fans and Moonlights. How Good Are These
Not sure about that brand but that is a lot of light if you are using it in freshwater. T5 bulbs??? You can use that for corals.LOL1. Did I wire my light fixture correctly?It sounds wrong to me, but I could not be sure without actually being there. You should connect the new fixture, in exactly the same way the original fixture was connected. If there was not a grounding conductor in the original circuit, replacing the fixture did not make one magically appear. If a grounding conductor is required, you will have to install one in accordance with local codes2. What does it mean if my light fixture causes light bulbs to blow frequently?This happens frequently in my 50 year-old home. I've measured the voltage to be 126V, which is high. I also notice lights getting brighter for a moment when the AC kicks in, which of course means even higher voltage. Constant higher voltage means shorter life, especially with the spikes. This has caused some of my home theater equipment to fail, even with the use of a "surge protector." The 130V bulbs sound like a good plan. For electronics, one of the best solutions are the Uninteruptable Power Supplies (UPS). They accept all kinds of wacky voltage - high and low, spikes and complete blackouts, and put out a constant 120V. They have batteries to provide the short term power during a blackout so you can shut down the computer without data loss, etc. There are voltage regulators (basically a huge UPS) available for the entire house, but those cost a fortune.3. Installing wall mount light fixture - what to do with ground wireI do not think you need to anything with the ground since you are plugging it in. If it was required for the plug then they should have given you a plug with a ground prong. You could cut off the ground wire, or tape it inside the fixture in case you ever decide to hardware it.4. How do i by pass the ballest on a 4' t8 Fluorescent light fixture to install led tubes?If it is a direct replacement using 120 vac or 220 vac do this. 1. Make sure the light has no power. 2. Remove covers. 3. Coming in to the fixture will be three wires (probably) Green is GROUND, leave that one alone. Black is power, disconnect it. White is neutral, disconnect it. 4. Disconnect the ballast (The big heavy box inside the fixture.) and remove it. If there is a starter (asually a little cylinder like object that you twist and remove.) remove that also. 5. Take the Black wire and hook it to the one end socket. (if there are two wires coming out of it hook both wires to the black one.) 6. Take the White wire and hook it to the other end socket. (same procedure for two wires.) 7. Install your lamp or bulb. 8. Turn on your power and the light should light. 9. Turn off power and replace covers. Your light should be fully functional.5. How can I safely replace a light fixture above a stairwell?You can try this type of ladder. It allows for a configuration like this on a staircase:Here is another option that might work as well6. How to properly wire a ceiling light fixture?It can also be a bad switch. The same thing just happened to me. Using black and white the power was on all of the time. I wired it up correctly using the red, but then the light would not come on. All of a sudden it came on by itself. I played with the switch and found that it was intermittent! Replace it with a new 49 cent switch (15 amp) from the junk box in the garage and BINGO - fixed! Thank you, offending switch for your confession!.7. Full Spectrum Light Bulbs old light fixture?There should be an electrical rating sticker on the fixture8. Flourescent light fixture?check incoming voltage and compare with fixture, right ballast, right tubes, connections right? Maybe cheap tubes, defective ballast? Remote possibility: on and off too much?9. I have this weird light fixture I can't unscrew. Help!?Without seeing the light fixture its harder to say, but here are a few tips: Turn the glass to make sure its not locked in that way, some times it will have a notch in it. If that does not work, the hollow tube thats in the middle, I have seen those to wear they are not treaded on the "top end" instead of turning it try to gently push is up and over, it might slide or hook in. If that does not work try pulling down while turning, be careful not to let the globe come crashing down on your head. Check the top and make sure that there are not three screws holding it in there, they will not have a slot for a screw driver, so you will have to use fingers or pliers. Be careful and if your in doubt trip the breaker
You'd Never Expect to Find This Opulent Mansion next to a Gas Station in Detroit
You'd never expect to find this between a gas station and a parking garage on a busy Detroit street. But sure enough, the historic (and humongous) Hecker-Smiley mansion looms on a block of Woodward Avenue -- and it's for sale for less than the price of a decent two-bedroom apartment in Manhattan.Flickr photo by gab482.Looking at the mansion, now on the market for $2.8 million, you can see why Detroit was once called the Paris of the West.Two American presidents, and one vice president, have visited the former residence of Col. Frank Hecker. Built by architect Louis Kamper and finished in 1892, the 21,000-square-foot French Renaissance-styled home was modeled after the 16th century Chteau de Chenonceau in the Loire Valley as an ode to the city's French roots. It was the first residence in Michigan to have electricity, and some of its original electric light fixtures still remain.Hecker, a railroad tycoon, lived there until his death in 1927; the house was then used as a boarding house before Paul Smiley purchased in 1945 for his company, Smiley Brothers Music Co. In the 1990s, current owners Charfoos & Christensen moved in and completed an extensive renovation, for which they were given a Historic Rehabilitation Excellence Award from the National Park Service in 1994, according to the Michigan Bar Journal. The home has since been used as the law firm's offices.The home has so many rooms that Doug Peters, attorney and expert on the home's history, had difficulty counting. Historic Detroit estimates there are 49 rooms on the mansion's three floors, which wouldn't include the finished basement or two-story, 6,000-square-foot carriage house. The second building holds a mock courtroom that used to be a stable; oats for the horses sometimes still shake loose and collect in a light fixture.One walk around the mansion isn't enough to take in all its details and history, from the 13 fireplaces to the large paintings of Detroit scenes by Hungarian artist Balazs Szabo. You couldn't tell that Vice President Joe Biden has visited the home recently and, much less recently, former Presidents Rutherford B. Hayes and William McKinley stayed there.There are countless nooks and crannies, and the house's turrets create charming round spaces. Many rooms are lined with ornate paneling and parquet floors. While renovating, the lawyers stumbled on one of the best surprises: a secret passageway that ran around the mansion's perimeter. It's former use is still unclear.Levi Smith, a broker with Southfield, Mich. real estate firm Principal Associates, said the home has been on the market for several years and the price has come down from over $3 million. They imagine the building being right for a nonprofit, a professional organization, small museum, club or consulate: it currently serves as the Royal Danish Consulate of Detroit.But it could also potentially be used as a residential home, he said. So if you'd like to live like a railroad tycoon for less than the cost of a 2-bedroom New York condo, it's worth a look at the photos below -- and be sure to send us an invitation to the ball.Most importantly, it needs to go to someone who will care for the historic home. Who knew the Motor City had so many opulent mansions?Hat tip: Curbed Detroit.
Modern Bathroom Design: Some Tips
Bathrooms are not just bathrooms anymore and some principles of modern bathroom need to be incorporated in designing a bathroom space using modern design. Modern bathroom design has lines that are bold and clean, dÃcor to a minimum and the use of white color abundantly. The bathroom in today's world is not just a place to do what is typically done in a bathroom but also a room that is elegant as well. In designing a modern bathroom, the following are the tips that may be followed.Tips and Tricks for a modern bathroom designClean LinesLines that are clean play a role that is significant in the dÃcor of the bathroom and it is important to consider the outer shape of the windows, mirror, counter top etc and ensure that they match with each other. Typically, outer lines that are wavy may be ruled out since they are not common in the design of modern bathrooms.It is important to emphasize or pick ovals or horizontal straight lines and use them for a clean and bold look. A more subtle and harmonious and subtle look is provided by using ovals. To match the lines, one can use a countertop that is rectangular, a sink that is rectangular or square, a horizontal mirror that is large etc and add lines to the bathroom that are horizontal. When going the oval route, a window sill that is oval in shape can be aligned with the bathtub, curved countertop, mirror etc to go with the scheme.ColorsWith color, being a minimalist or going for a look that is minimal is key and when picking a scheme with two colors, for spaces that smaller it is recommended to pick white and a color such as bamboo green, light aqua, soft green, wooden etc to go with the white. For a bathroom that is on the larger scale, shades that are darker as in blacks, purples, reds, grays etc can be selected.The bathroom may feel closed in when using patterns. However, for a bathroom that is medium or large in size, the ceiling may be painted or one wall may be painted with designs in interior paint or tiles with designs on them may be used. Addition of more patterns can bring about a design that is reflective of mid century modern style.LightingA very important role in the design of small bathrooms in a modern way is lighting since it can be used to create a place that is lit well. The best choices for lighting in bathrooms are lights that are white or off-white in color. For a space that is small, it is recommended to keep the countertop clear of light fixtures and have simply a small lamp. If the bathroom is large, ceiling lights that are small and in any color may be added to the ceiling in addition to light fixtures that are colored to bring ambience to the bathroom. For natural light, a skylight may be used.Less is MoreThe principle of modern bathroom design is that less is more and it means that lesser numbers of items are to be used in the decoration of the space. For bathrooms that are smaller in size, it is good to keep the countertop clear of items and if not, have the least number of items on it. The use of a bathroom light that is white in color, bamboo plants that are considered lucky and some wooden mats are good. The use of hanging sinks in the bathroom in place of pedestal sinks is an alternative that works well in creating more room. Compactness, similarly, in the design elements that are used is important.Space that is unclutteredClutter creates a feeling of chaos and it is advised to have a bathroom that is clear of clutter and has shelves under the counter for storage. It is possible to have mirrors on the cabinets in bathrooms and in front of the sink for the sake of keeping brushes, tooth paste and other sorts of accessories. The use of a wooden shelf that is very small just outside a bathroom that is very small works really well and whatever is needed can be picked up while using the bathroom.The above was a discussion about the design of modern bathrooms and it is possible to have a beautifully designed and decorated bathroom by making use of these tricks and tips.
Confusing Ceiling Light Fixture Wiring
Agreed with Keil above on his concerns in #2, so I would check the switch wires to see what was done via Romex or Whip/BX. Some Whip/BX only have 2 wires and are used for switches and the installer chooses the colors to use incorrectly sometimes.You can however use the box itself as the ground because this box eventually is connected to the panel for the house and itself is grounded to the water pipe entering the house usually. And really, why are you bothering with turning off the power for the circuit - you people do not like working with live power? You do not like to live on the edge, do you? Kidding1. Does a ceiling light fixture need to be grounded?Flourecent fixtures have to be grounded to work2. I need to install a ceiling light. What is the average cost for installation (not the actual fixture)?Cost To Install Light Fixture3. changing a ceiling light fixture?Turn off the breaker or remove the fuse, match the colors (black to black, white to white) and coil the ground wire out of the way in the box. Tape or cap off the ends, secure your light fixture, and flip the breaker back on to test it. Good luck!4. can you use a 100 watt light bulb in place of a 40 watt light bulb in a light fixture?Fixtures have ratings on them, go by them, if in doubt, do not do it5. How to install ceiling light fixture?Hire an electrician. Seriously, you need to know if there is current already flowing on those wires and where they are tied into. Otherwise you could be hooking two different circuits together one on the plus side and the other on the negative side of your power feed6. is it safe to install a light fixture without a plastic junction box?safety wise i would put a metal box on first thats code7. Replacing a ceiling fan with a light fixture?The simple solution would be to install a pull chain light fixture or a remote control operated light as your friend suggested. Your only other option would be to wire in a new switch for each light. The way the fan/lights were originally wired indicates to me that you have a constant unswitched power source at the light locations. Under current codes, you would need to run a 3 conductor (black, red, white) cable from the light to the switch location. At the light location, the black (hot) house conductors would be tied together. All white (neutral) conductors would be tied together to include the neutral from the light. The red conductor from the new cable would be attached to the hot conductor on the light. All bare or green ground wires should be also be tied together. At the switch location, the black and red conductors would be attached to the switch and the white wire capped if using a standard toggle type switch. The availability of a neutral at the switch location is required in case a specialty switch (such as motion sensor or remote control) is installed in the future.8. I have a 4 foot fluorescent light fixture with a plastic cover that I can't get off?4 Foot Fluorescent Light Fixture Cover9. The house I moved into has a Rosary wrapped around the light fixture above the dining room table....?I am not sure. However, When two or three are gathered in the name of God, He is there. Since it is over the dinning table, I would guess it is a symbol of a families welcoming of the Lord when they gathered at the table.10. Choosing the Right Aquarium LightChoosing the right light is one of the most important aspects of an aquarium. It can also be one of the most confusing, especially for beginner aquarists. Choosing the best light fixture for your aquarium depends on the needs of the animals and plants you will be keeping, the size and dimensions of your aquarium and your budget. The number 1 reason to have a light on your aquarium is to enjoy the beauty of the fish, plants and decorations. In addition, the fish need to see so they can get around, find food and interact with each other. But there are other considerations; fish and live plants have specific light needs. Some fish inhabit open water in rivers, streams and lakes, where the light is bright most of the day. Others prefer dimmer habitats among fallen logs or under overhanging vegetation. The same applies to plants; some grow in shallow or open water, where the light is bright and constant throughout the day. Others are found in deeper water or in the shadow of taller plants or overhanging shrubs and trees. It's important to choose a light that is appropriate for the types of fish and plants you keep. Not all light is created equal. Intensity refers to how strong or "bright" a light is. Spectrum is a way of describing the mixture of different colors - or wavelengths - a light produces. Light spectrum is often given a Kelvin rating or "K rating". Light sources that give off a yellowish or warm effect have a low Kelvin rating, while those that produce a crisp bluish-white or cool light have a high Kelvin rating. Most freshwater aquarium lights are rated between 5,500 and 8,000 Kelvin. Intensity and spectrum are less important in aquariums or with artificial plants, although some lights enhance natural colors better than others. A light that's too intense may promote algae, especially in non-planted tanks. Where live plants are concerned, proper intensity and spectrum can make a difference between success and failure. Water depth is a factor, as well. Certain wavelengths, especially blue, penetrate deeper into water than others, and this can be critical to live plants. Let your local dealer know your tank's height and the types of plants you want to keep when getting advice on the best light fixture for your aquarium. There are several types of aquarium lights, allowing aquarists to choose one that best suits their needs and those of their aquarium inhabitants. Aqueon and Coralife offer a wide range of full hoods, strip lights and clip-on lights. Here are some common choices for freshwater aquariums: For years this has been the most common form of aquarium lighting and it continues to be popular today. Affordable pricing and a selection of bulbs for different applications make fluorescent lights a great choice for many aquarists. Aqueon offers strip lights and full hoods as well as a selection of bulbs for rectangular, hexagon and bowfront aquariums. Bulbs dim over time and should be replaced every 10 to 12 months. Rapidly becoming the most popular type of aquarium lighting, these energy-efficient lights offer features that are not available in other aquarium lights. Aqueon LED lights are available for aquariums of almost any size. They use far less energy than other lights, do not heat the water and the LEDs last several years without losing intensity. OptiBright lights feature higher intensity, programmable timers, output (intensity) and spectrum controls, nighttime moonlights, adjustable sunrise/sunset and moonrise/moonset timers and different color options! It's important for all living things to have a regular day/night cycle for optimum health and well-being. In the tropics, where most aquarium fish, invertebrates and plants come from, there are 12 hours of light (known as the photoperiod) and 12 hours of darkness every day of the year. Planted aquariums do best with 12 hours of light, while those without live plants will have less algae with a photoperiod of approximately 8 to 10 hours. Use a timer on your aquarium light to create a consistent day/night cycle. To enjoy your aquarium during evening hours, place it away from windows and set the timer accordingly. A commonly held belief in aquarium keeping is that too much light causes excessive algae growth. Algae are nature's way of purifying water and are a natural part of any aquarium. The truth is that nuisance algae outbreaks are more often caused by nutrient build-up than lighting issues. Planted aquarium owners rarely need to clean algae even though they use high output lighting because nutrients are quickly utilized by the plants, thus starving any algae. The trick to preventing algae growth is to manage nutrients with regular water changes, chemical filter media and not overfeeding your fish, along with providing the right amount of light. In aquariums, the term "nutrients" refers to nitrate and phosphate, which typically come from fish food and the resulting fish waste. But there is another source, which is tap water. Many tap water sources contain high levels of these impurities and performing water changes with nitrate or phosphate-laden water will not reduce levels and may even cause them to rise. If your tap water contains high nutrient levels, use reverse osmosis (RO) or deionized (DI) water with Aqueon Water Renewal added to fill your aquarium and perform water changes. Choosing the right light for your aquarium enhances its natural beauty and ensures the long-term health of your fish, plants and invertebrate life!

The Hottest Questions About Light Fixture
Here are top 10 questions about light fixture asked by people online.1. 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. How do I add a light fixture to an existing 3 way circuit when the existing one is powered directly?I cannot see it being able to be done. Theres just not enough wires. Basically whats missing is after you get your switched power to your light you need a path back to the main (source) neutral. Or any neutral really. You do have white wires in the 3 way switch boxed but they are acting as travellers and not neutrals. Sorry for your bum luck. I hate being short wires! If you could pull a 3 wire to replace the 2 wire between the source power light fixture and the 3 way switch box on the right, than you could then feed a light fixture off that 3 way. I am not sure if thats easier for you...3. need to change old bathroom light fixture wiring with a new one?interior the ceiling container; is there a cable stepping into the container? if so, what are the colour of the conductors interior the cable(s)? How old is the domicile; some older properties did no longer have floor wires. look on the wall swap and notice the way it relatively is under pressure out; if there are in trouble-free terms 2 wires then it under pressure out in a loop configuration. The greater information you provide will make it greater convenient for persons to assist. whether it relatively is under pressure out in a loop configuration and there's a black and pink twine related to the swap; twine the ceiling fixture as follows: connect the two black wires interior the ceiling container which comprise a twine nut; connect the two white wires which comprise a twine nut; connect the pink twine from the ceiling container to the black twine on the hot fixture. the floor twine from the hot fixture could be related to the ceiling container whether it relatively is steel. As formerly stated, have an electrician do it in case you are uncertain of doing it your self.4. How do I install a ceiling light fixture using an existing hole, but the hole is too big?Is there a way to attach a 2x4 (a little longer than the hole) inside the hole to attach the box to? You may have to screw the 2x4 from the outside, but this may solve your problem. Also, cover the hole with a decorative flange to the ceiling5. changing light fixture - the ceiling has 2 wires wht/blk - but new fixture has an extra green wire? what to doIf you only have two wires coming out of your ceiling then you house is not grounded. Or that particular circuit is not grounded and you can either insulate the green wire and leave it alone or you could even cut it off. Everyone so far has said that you connect it to the metal box, but what you have to understand is that Green means ground, ground as in Earth ground. The box is nailed or screwed into a wooden rafter and is not grounded. Connect the green wire if it will make you feel better but it is not necessary. The reason things are grounded is to provide an alternative electrical path should your neutral (or return voltage) wire fails. If your neutral fails with the light you are hooking up it will simply not work regardless of what you do with the green wire.6. How do I replace a bathroom light fixture with old wiring?you need an electrician to fix the sparking problem. BAD WIRES WILL A HOUSE BURN DOWN7. Why is the circuit shorting after connecting a new light fixture?You should not have added the white wire to the bundle of whites. Remove it. Even worse, "the last guy" that you are following is not very good, and did a botch job - first he used an obsolete technique, and then he did that in a way that is statutorially wrong (breaks the rules but not a safety issue, except that it confused you and led you to do the wrong thing and blow the whole upstairs and possibly break other stuff, so yeah, safety issue. Code is Code for reasons). New cable will need to be pulled from the switch to the lamp location, because it wo not pass inspection the way it is. It will need to be /3 cable (black red white), and in that case, colors will match up after all. With red being the color of "switched-hot", which connects switch and lamp. You cannot run a single additional wire (do not even think about it), it has to be a full new /3ground cable. The /2 cable can be reused if it can be gotten off cleanly. Since the work was already shoddy, touching it was probably a strategic mistake, since now you are on the hook for it. Even after you skill up on electrical, I would not touch that "electrician's" work anymore. In the future, when connecting a lamp, lamp neutral generally goes to the bundle of neutrals and lamp hot generally goes to the "desperate" loose wire. However in a Code compliant situation, that wire will be black or red
Replacing Either the Light Socket Or the Whole Recessed Light Fixture
This looks like a box for incandescent/CFL lighting that is not rated for insulation contact (IC). It might not be easy/cheap to replace it. Even if it's a socket you might find it hard to find a replacement part. You will need to pay with either time (DIY) or money to fix it. I doubt contractors will be interested in repair of such a thing, too time-consuming for them and you are unwilling to pay "too much money". Where I live an electrician visits starts from $200For the same money consider hiring a handyman to do remove the box, add some framing to support a new drywall patch, patch the seam, match-paint, paint the ceiling, cut a round hole and install an IC rated can like this.That would probably also cost you about $200• Related QuestionsDo all permanent lighting fixtures need to be switched, per NEC?What the Code prohibits is exactly what you're complaining about: having to venture into a pitch dark space because the light switch is on the far side of it. So what you want isn't optional; it's probably mandatory to use one of these cures: However, building codes in some states may prohibit a 24x7 light for conservation reasons. You certainly should not use incandescent lights 24x7. Even if you're full-on hard lifestyle committed to incandescent til the government pries it out of your cold dead hands, there are practical problems. a) the stupid-huge power consumption of a 24x7 light: expect $1 per watt per year. And b) 24x7 you'll burn through the life of the bulb very quickly, making the space unsafe due to frequent bulb burnout. Your best bet on both fronts is a quality build LED------How can I determine the specifications of this LED (photo included)?It looks like a pretty typical high power LED like this.Here are many more options from the search it came from. I think that any option from those results will likely be very similar Vf specs wise (3.3-3.6V Vf) but the pinouts/current rating may vary. I think the notch on the bottom right may be for the cathode (e.g. pin 6/bottom right) and the top left pin (pin 1) the anode. What I can make out of the traces looks like it might confirms this, but you need to investigate more.You can test your LEDs Vf quite easily with a multimeter (also current if necessary) The current in these packages seems to range from 30mA up to 700mA.Remove the 6 pin search filter and update the results to look for other options.------Converting Hard Wire Fixture to Plug InSome very important information is missing here. Where are you intending to place that lighting fixture?Normally a light like that is mounted in a permanent manner to a wall. There should be an electrical box in the wall that is positioned directly behind the hole shown here:Three wires from the fixture, white, black and a safety ground pass through that hole and connect to the permanent wiring in the electrical box. You may want to consider adding an additional safety ground wire from that green screw showing in the above picture. You will not use that two prong cord suggested by the person at Home Depot. They do not know what they are talking about. You do need to have the safety ground wire of the fixture connected into the safety ground of the building wiring------How do I install this lamp on my ceiling?I'm a big time movieAsk your best boy to handle this. I'm dumbfounded by what is expected from me.The light fitting apparently requires a hook in the ceiling.Am I at risk for being electrocuted?Yes. Am I correct that it doesn't matter in which hole I put the blue or black wire?In general, simple AC lamps will work either way around.However it is safer, especially for pendant fittings, to use the appropriate colour for live. If you switch wires at the top of the pendant cord, you may fatally confuse someone subsequently working at the bottom of the pendant cord. This is a small risk but since it is easy to do the safer thing, you should.For wiring colours see Wikipedia, they vary from country to country and change over time------Is a ceiling fan box brace required?The problem is not the simple strength of the ceiling joists - we'll presume that even a single joist is strong enough to hold up a fan. The problem is that a box next to a joist will not be stable enough to support a fan if it is only supported on one side. A typical brace solves that problem.An alternative is to place the box under a joist. However, unless this is an open ceiling, that will (a) have the box dropping below the finished ceiling and (b) not look very nice.So unless you really like a wobbling fan, use a brace:You also get the nice advantage of more flexibility for placement of the fan, though if you are making use of an existing hole in the ceiling then that is a non-issue.------Cold War spy movie, where spy camera is discovered in ceiling light fixture closedI remember that exact scene occurring in the 1992 film Patriot Games. It is hard to find that level of detail in a movie summary, though.Dennis Cooley is an Irish bookstore owner who is sympathetic to the ultra-violent faction of the IRA led by Kevin O'Donnell. He uses his bookstore to filter information for Kevin and his second-in-command, Sean Miller. Midway through the film, Dennis realises that his store is being watched by Sergeant Owens and his men, as part of the joint-CIA and English operation to hunt down O'Donnell and Miller for the attempt on Jack Ryan and his family.Dennis promptly hightails it out of England before Owens can stop him, and with the help of Lord Holmes' assistant (and fellow IRA sympathizer) Jeffrey Watkins manages to make it to the IRA's training camp in North Africa.------Is it OK to have a light that can only be controlled via automation?The NEC requirement is that it be possible to turn on a light in a room, via a switch that is in a reasonably expected location. If you need your phone to turn the light on, that's a no go. NEC is not particular about whether the lamp is a permanently installed light, or a plug-in floor lamp. The floor lamp is allowed to have a switch on itself, which if turned off, defeats the room switch.NEC is also not particular about the technology used, as long as it's listed. It just needs to work. However, they may be other building codes which come to bear. There is also your local jurisdiction's interpretation, their local rules, and the ultimate nuke: the ability of the jurisdiction to revoke a home's occupancy permit if the arragement proves to be problematic------What is the best light bulb to use in my enclosed glass ceiling light fixture?There are multiple options one should consider while choosing light bulb. LED bulbs is one such which is energy saving, fits multiple light sockets or bulb holders. They produce light of same intensity as incandescent light bulb although with lower wattage and they will last for longer duration. You can also go for CFL bulbs. They are better energy efficient than incandescent light bulb but higher than LED bulbs.1. Type of lighting you choose for a room directly affects the atmosphere and the mood2. Size of your room and type will determine which type you need, but in general you want at least two to properly light a room. Further, You can go through following blog for more information an inspiration - Lighting tips.What is the best light bulb to use in my enclosed glass ceiling light fixture?------How can I replace a ceiling light and repair the surrounding plaster?You really don't want to disturb the lath with a light fixture. The plaster is fragily 'keyed' into the gaps between the lath. The weight of the light must connect to structure. Ideally, the light fixture should be independent of the plaster.The plaster must be 'quietly' cut back. I use a continuous rim diamond wheel (4 1/2 inch on an angle grinder) to cut the plaster. You need to carefully cut back the exposed lath and use a 'feeler' probe to find how far away the joists are, to each side.You should use the Polyfilla powder for interiors, powered gypsum joint compound (with plaster-of-paris for setting) or an authentic lime based plaster (for best compatibility).Traditionally plaster involves a brown coat, a scratch coat and a finish coat. Metal lath is useful for making repairs to existing ceilings.------How can I determine why my circuit is broken after replacing the switch and light fixture?If there's no current to the fixture or switch, then the fault is upstream. The fact that it was flickering indicates a failing connection, possibly arcing somewhere, which can be a fire hazard. You should check all the junctions on this circuit from the switch back to the breaker until you locate one with a good hot, neutral, and ground connection. And then somewhere between that junction and the next failing junction is your issue. It may be a bad connection that can be repaired at the end, or it may be a bad line and you'll need to rerun that segment of the circuit.Over the internet, we have no way to be more specific. It entirely depends on how the home is wired and where the fault is located, which we don't have enough information to determine------What could this wood be?Looks suspiciously like "I'll put board back here to screw the fixture to, and run wire there, with no box" - which would be a fairly major code violation and increase the scope of your work to correct it and make it safe. Edit to add:You can get rid of the board, but correcting the situation will probably involve a bit more than just cutting it out (i.e. you may need to cut and repair drywall, but that's very much in the "relatively cosmetic" sphere, and not so terribly dificult without complicating factors like tiles or a textured finish, especially if your cosmetic upgrade already includes painting.) I'm dubious that you can just cut out the board and successfully mount an "old-work" box there, as the remains of the board would be in the way------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.).------Can I make a switched outlet which is connected to light hot all the time without running new wire?The only hot leads going to the outlet box are switched (both fan and light black wires). Since there is no unswitched hot lead, you cannot have constant power to the outlet without running new wires.If you could tolerate one switch controlling both fan and light, you could create a constant hot at the outlet by bypassing either the fan or light switch and connecting the two switch wires together. Then one of the blacks at the outlet box would be constant hot. That would be your hot lead to the outlet, rather than continuing up to the fixture. You would cap the unused wire to the fixture on both ends. Finally you would connect both the fan and light hot leads to the one remaining switched hot. But, obviously you lose independent control of the two functions
Spotlight's on My Meat Wagon, Smithfield
New places keep popping up around Dublin's city centre, and barbecue restaurants popular in Brooklyn and London have become a recent favourite of Irish restaurateurs.Bison Bar was the first we can recall on the south quays, swiftly followed by Pitt Bros BBQ on George's St. However this new outpost in Smithfield is different - yes, the look is the same (think tin cans repurposed to hold cutlery, kitchen roll on the table and Amerciana-esque decor) but Dublin 7's newest restaurant has something that little bit different.It could be the fact that their meat smoker is authentic, all the way from Texas and transported to these here shores by ship. It could be the charming, kitsch decor that manages to have both a DIY vibe and an impressive finish at the same time (a rare feat). Or it could just be the fact that this is a neighbourhood joint reminiscent of small town America, and somehow doesn't feel contrived in urban Dublin.The food is standard BBQ fare, but done very well. Chicken, beef or pork in a box, burger or on a board. Sides of slaw, fries, mash (mixed with meat juice) and sausage. Craft beers and wine, and ice cream for dessert. No complaints here, and the prices are very reasonable - two mains (a box and an "everything" board of mixed meat) and three beers for €40. Obviously, vegetarians might not enjoy it as much as their carnivorous pals, but that's par for the course with this kind of cuisine.However what was most impressive (apart from the lovely, personal service considering we visited on the second night they were open and the place was full) was the look of the place. Something rarely seen in a brand new place is a functional, attractive themed decor that truly works and doesn't feel gimmicky. We were told by our waitress that one of the chefs made every glass bottle light fixture thanks to an online tutorial. She herself found the little trolleys the fries are served in in a shop on Capel St, and the pallets on the ceiling were painstakingly hung by the owners themselves.If you're looking for a casual bite before hitting the Lighthouse, or you're staying in the Generator or visiting the Old Jamseson Distillery, call in here. You won't be sorry. Those who live in town or along the Luas line, I predict that Smithfield is about to become a lot more enticing.Animal toys with table numbers and a meat wagon facade kitchen. Americana-hipster-chic.Pages of books pasted to the walls, soap in a sauce bottle. Clean and cool.In a word, lovely.Wine, bubbles, craft beer, soft drinks.Right next door you'll find Oscar's, a hidden gem of a bar that's got a New York vibe. Still hungry Jo'Burger have just opened across the street, opposite the distillery entrance.Irish Independent
10 Most Commonly Asked Questions About Light Fixture
Considering that light fixture may still be new to many people, we provide ten common questions and answers about light fixture for you to get started.1. why do I have two black wires and two white wires coming from the ceiling light fixture?If there is a light kit, one pair for the light and one for the fan2. Brighten Up Any Dark Corner With These Quick and Easy Decorating TipsNatural light is often considered one of the most desirable home design features. But the truth is, dark corners in areas like the living room or bedroom are a common reality for many of us, despite what our Insta photos might show. Not only can they look moody and drab but they can make the whole room appear smaller as a result. So if you are dealing with a dark corner, less-than-desirable nook, or gloomy unused space, there are a few smart ways you can use furniture to make it look lighter, brighter, and more inviting. Find out what they are ahead! Just like how a strategically positioned mirror can make a small space look bigger, it can also make a dark space look brighter. If you can, try to place your mirror directly opposite a light source, like a window or lamp, in order to reflect as much light as possible. And do not be afraid to get creative! A single leaning or hanging mirror works wonders, but you could also create a gallery wall with an array of mirrors or even use mirrored furniture. Avoid chunky, dark furniture in favor of smaller, light-colored pieces. Shades of white, beige, taupe, and gray wo not absorb all the light in the area like a dark wood or black furniture piece can. And go matte if possible - matte finishes reflect light in all directions, unlike glossy surfaces, which can create a glare. However, if you wanted to incorporate a few metallic touches here and there, they can help reflect light similar to the effect of a mirror. For example, you could use a small marble table or upholstered stool to display some gold decorative objects, hang a gold picture frame or light fixture, or bring in a plant displayed in a light-colored planter - or all three. If you want to go a step further and transform a gloomy corner into one that's visually appealing and functional, add seating. A light-colored accent chair angled into the corner paired with a small side table will open up the space and instantly make it more inviting. Now, it's the perfect little nook to cuddle up with a book or take a videoconference call! A dark corner is usually the furthest space from natural light, so you can supplement any natural lighting with artificial lighting. But placement is key here. Whether you opt for a standing floor lamp or a wall sconce, aim all lighting upward, either at the ceiling or wall, to help minimize shadows and to make the space look brighter and bigger. A torchiere lamp is ideal, but you could also go with a shaded or bulb wall sconce - just make sure any lampshades are light in color and texture (for example, white linen) and that the fixture design is visually light rather than clunky (nothing big and dark) to achieve an airy vibe.3. I'm only getting 20v to 120v light fixture?Ohms test the wires, easyest way is unhook the wires at your breaker and wire tie them together, than at the outlet ohms test the two wires, if it shows a open circuit than trace down the wire, if thats the only outlet on that run than replace it but most have 4-5 outlets in a series per breaker. You can have a wire that burnt off another outlet or something. Be careful not to electrocute yourself and if you do its only 120v which can kill you but just use your head. Replace outlets before supply wire, you can ohms test a outlet by with it unhooked with no power, ohms test the screw on the side where the hot wire goes and in where your plug goes in ext. good luck4. Both Wires on light fixture I'm installing are the same color?Yikes! Since every one ahead of me has gotten a TD I am almost afraid to answer this one! But here goes. The neutral wire needs to go to the threaded lamp shell and the hot to the bottom tab. It will light up wired either way, and when the switch is off you would be safe when changing the bulb. The "danger" of having them reversed comes when changing the bulb while the switch is still on. Granted most of us turn the switch off anyway, but still. If you have a meter that will test resistance or better still continuity, put one lead on the wire with the lettering and the other to the lamp shell. I am pretty sure it will "ring out", if not try the other wire. Once you have determined which is the neutral, wire it up. If you do not have a tester look and see if there is a cardboard tube around the socket that you can lift up and look at the wires. If not gently pry the top part of the socket loose from the bottom half in order to have a look. I am not sure why some fixtures come with wires the same color. Was it manufactured outside of the U.S.? Does it have a UL (Underwriters Lab) sticker on it anywhere?
