New light has standard white, black and green wire. In the ceiling there are (2) red wires only. How do I wire it properly?

  • Can you post a photo of the inside of the ceiling box? – ThreePhaseEel Aug 19 '17 at 20:37
  • We'll need a photo looking up into the ceiling box's innards... – ThreePhaseEel Aug 19 '17 at 20:56
  • Can you pull the driver module out of the box and get us some closeups of that? (Leave your existing photo in there, please) – ThreePhaseEel Aug 19 '17 at 21:18
  • I pulled out the box out with the white sticker on it and it revealed the white, back and ground. All set thanks!!! I never saw a light like this one! – Steve Kowalski Aug 19 '17 at 21:28
  • post that as an answer and I'll upvote it :) – ThreePhaseEel Aug 19 '17 at 21:32

I pulled out the box out with the white sticker on it by gently pulling both red wires and it revealed the white, black and ground I was looking for.

  • The box could be a driver, ballast, or transformer -- was the old light a LED or something else that does not use an Edison screw base? – ThreePhaseEel Aug 19 '17 at 23:14
  • Yes, fixture took a 50watt Type T4 (12V-BI-PIN) bulb. Actually replaced (2) over kitchen island. They got very hot. Replaced them with Edison screw base LED bulbs....should save some money on the ol' elec. bill. – Steve Kowalski Aug 21 '17 at 12:42
