So unsure if this can be answered but worth a try!
I am replacing my living room light fixtures - they are currently rose ceiling fixtures.
There are two lights in the room that are controlled by one switch. The first fixture has two flex’s coming through the ceiling, each with the 3 wires (live neutral earth). The second fixture has just the one flex.
It is this first fixture I am unsure about. My new fixture has just the three wire points so I effectively have 6 wires and 3 holes.
Now Everywhere I’ve read suggests that the first light should have 3 flex’s the power in, the loop out and a switch wire. Firstly is this assumption correct?
The flat has two other rose fixtures in different rooms controlled by different switches.
Should it be the case that because the first fixture in the living room has 2 flex’s and the second fixture has just one, that these are on their own loop and one of the flex’s in the first fixture must be the switch wire? (Note that there was no colouring on the wiring that identifies one of these as the live switch).
It might also be worth mentioning that there are spotlights in the kitchen(open plan) controlled by a switch on the same panel.
Can anyone advise whether one of the two flex’s coming into my first rose fixture is a switch wire, and if so if I can identify which one loops to the second fixture (by checkin in the loft or by pulling the second fixture wire and seeing which one it moves) then the other one must be the switch and therefore the neutral wire should be considered the live switch?
I hope this makes sense. Happy to clarify! Thanks in advance
