How do I ground a new overhead light fixture? I'm replacing a 2 wire fixture with no grounding wire with a new 3 wire fixture which includes a ground wire.enter image description here

  • Can you post a photo looking into the back of the light fixture box please? – ThreePhaseEel Jul 25 '19 at 0:59
  • I have a photo as requested but I don't know how to post it. If you give me your e-mail ThreePhaseEel, I can send it to you – Michael O'Haver Jul 25 '19 at 2:37
  • You should be able hit the "edit" link in "share edit..." in your post and then use the button that looks like a mountain-and-sun painting to add the picture to your post. If that doesn't work, post a comment and we can help you from there – ThreePhaseEel Jul 25 '19 at 2:42
  • Ah, I meant the box in the wall, not the actual fixture itself, my apologies! So, could you post another photo please? – ThreePhaseEel Jul 25 '19 at 11:46
  • I don't know what you mean by the box in the wall. Can you explain further? – Michael O'Haver Jul 25 '19 at 14:33
