So when we moved into our place, the dining room light was always on unless you used the pull cord to turn it off, the wall switch did nothing. Replaced the switch, no change.
Trying to change out the fixture for a regular chandelier(no pull cord) so we need this switch to function.
Inside switch we have incoming power one black, one white and ground, also have wire going to light fixture, one black, one white, one red, and ground. The problem we are having is if we put power to the black, the red gets power, even if it's not hooked up at either end. How is this red getting power?
