Changing an electrical component
It can be a difficult task to change electrical components or replace them with new ones. Still, you require basic tools and some simple electrical skills. As always, your safety should be your first priority.
The manufacturer's instructions for installing the components can help you get things done faster and keep you from getting hurt. Be careful and avoid any faulty wiring, or if the wiring doesn't appear compatible with the changes you're making.
Step 1: Turn off the power.
Based on the electrical circuit panel, locate the circuit breaker control for the room where the work will be conducted and switch the circuit off. Keep the power off and then label the circuit breaker for future reference.
Step 2: Remove the old fixture.
Remove the old wires and connections, and install the new wires properly. Remove the base or trim from the old fixture.
Step 3: Tighten the screws.
Check the electrical box in the ceiling where the fixture or wires are attached, see if it's loose. If so, tighten the screws holding it in place, but don't over-tighten as it might break the fixture s threading.
Step 4: Connect the wires.
Follow the instructions on connecting the fixture from the manual provided by the manufacturer. If you are installing new wires, then make sure the connections are done properly and the wires are untangled.
Step 5: Secure the base.
Fold the wires into the electrical box or into a void in the base or canopy. Use the included hardware to attach the fixture base to the electrical box.
Step 6: Turn on the circuit.
Turn on the circuit at your electrical panel first, and then turn on the light switch to the fixture. If the light doesn't come on, turn off the switch and the circuit, and then check your wiring connections.
