I'm installing a simple light fixture in my office. The wall switch has one black and one white wire connected to the switch. The overhead ceiling box has the following 3 connections:
- 3 black wires connected
- 2 white wires connected
- a single white wire.
I connected the black wire from the fixture to the 3 black wires. Then I connected the white wire from the fixture to the single white wire in the ceiling box but the light does not work.
Then I connected the white fixture wire to the two white wires in the ceiling box. The light works but you can't switch it off.
Then I connected the fixture white, to the 2 ceiling white and also connected the single ceiling white but this throws the switch. I don't know what to do next.
Any ideas? I'll try to attach two images.
