To wire a chandelier I have attached it to already installed ceiling recessed lights. I bought a Appliance Power Cord and attached to one of the ceiling lights and the plug to a female plug attached to wire from the chandelier. Can this create fire in attic? Also the dimmer for the ceiling lights gets hot if not fully open.

    Can you post some photos? Sounds like you've kludged something together, that may be dangerous. – Tester101 Jun 10 '16 at 20:59
  • Is this fixture a plug connected or did you wire the plug. If it had the plug it should be listed , if you put a plug on a fixture ,, not code compliant , hope your fire insurance is up to date. – Ed Beal Jun 11 '16 at 2:00
