  • OK, what actually happened was you hooked it all up this way while the switch was off. When you turned on the circuit breaker, the light was on. (for a reason lol). You wanted the light off, so you flipped the switch. The switch already was off, now it's on. The switch being on tripped the breaker. – Harper - Reinstate Monica May 29 at 18:27
  • Thank You for editing, its correct. So shall i undo it when the switch is off and try it again? – Jakub Picka May 29 at 20:37
