Just bought a house and took out old ugly garage-looking lights from the kitchen (long bulb in a frame with thin plastic covers), and cut some holes to put in 4 slim recessed LED lights. There are two switches controlling these lights, but I believe they’re connected in the wall because there’s only one source coming into the kitchen lights.
The problem is light number 4 is not turning on, and has a slow flicker. First three lights work fine.
I connected them the only way I expected lights to be connected in a line (hot, neutral and ground go from source, to light 1, to light 2, to light 3, and terminate at light 4).
It is possible the wires aren’t tight. These LED lights use a little plastic piece where you insert the wires, rather than twisting them together. However at light 3, I clipped off the plastic piece for neutral, stripped and Then twisted them in a nut because they kept slipping out.
Perhaps I need to look at hot wires in light 3? Clip the plastic piece, strip and twist them All together to ensure a tight connection?
Do I wire them in a ‘serial’ method where the neutral from source goes to light 4? Hot goes to light 1, then connect from 1-4 from neutral to hot, and light 4’s neutral connects with the source neutral?
Anything else to check?
