I am replacing originally 1960s sconces. This was how the wiring was found attached to light fixture:
- Capped white to fixture white
- Capped red to fixture black
- Black wires tapped off, in box.
Wiring coming into the box on the right is coming from the first sconce. Wiring on the left goes up to bathroom on second level.
If I replace the wire coming in on the right with a simple black, white, ground wire, does the new black wire connect to existing red, and keep single existing black capped off?
This is the wiring of the first sconce. Power source is coming in from bottom left, (black white, ground). The bottom right (black white) was wiring to hidden outlet behind wood paneling (being removed). The wiring out the top, (black white, red) is what is going to second sconce. This is what I replaced with black white wiring.
