UPDATED CEILING JUNCTION BOX PHOTO PROVIDED.
I’m wondering if I can ask for some assistance in installing a new ceiling light to an unused (blank plate)ceiling junction box. The light switch in the room has 3 unused switches.
This is the light fixture which is pretty standard.
There is a black, white and copper wire.
When I removed the ceiling junction cap, this is where I am puzzled.
There are 6 wires capped.
2 separate whites with double wires. 1 black with double wire. 1 red double wire. 1 orange single wire 1 green multiple wires.
The orange wire is from the side hole. The red wire comes from the bottom 2 holes. 1 white comes from bottom right and middle hole. 1 white comes from bottom right and top left hole. The black comes from bottom right and top left hole. The green comes from side hole and bottom left hole.
I guess all these wires are due to the 3 switches in the room?
I first wired the fixture copper wire to the green ground screw on the mount not shown here.
Then wired the junction double black to fixture black, and 1 junction double white to the fixture white. The light turned on but won’t turn off from any of the 3 switches. Changing to the 2nd double white to fixture white resulted in the same, with light on and unable to turn off. So either whites to the fixture white is unable to allow the light to shut off.
How should I actually be wiring this so that the light turns on and off according to the switch.
I hope I explained the ceiling wires properly.
Any help is much appreciated.
