I found some similar questions but none actually sort out my problem.
I bought a new IKEA light fitting and its electrical box has 4 holes (2 for N and 2 for L). The instruction said to put 1 N to N and 1 L to L. And I saw many videos online doing the same thing.
Mine is different. I have two cables (each has 3 N/L/E). I know that one of them is for the switch while the other is for the consumer unit. I tried different combination:
- Putting only the consumer cable in --> the light is always on. The switch does not work
- Putting only the switch cable --> the light is not on.
- Putting both of them in, 2 N from the two cables go to 2 N holes. Likewise, 2 L from the two cables go to 2 L holes. --> The light is on even when the light switch is not on. When I turn the light switch on, the light goes off and the main switch (of the room) switches off as well (meaning the combination is causing some conflict).
I tried different combinations of the third (changing the order of the two N and the two L) but none working. Can someone please help?
