I am by no means an electrician, but for my new light fixture I did follow the following schematic - How should I connect the ground wire for my light fixture?
The old fixture kept burning out the bulb so I replaced it with a nice https://www.lightingdirect.com/heath-zenith-hz-4300-4-light-360-degree-motion-activated-outdoor-flush-mount-ceiling-fixture/p2675820
Was working fine and please note I installed:
- White to White
- Black to Black
- And ground to bare ground wire (Actually ran the ground wire around the screw, which I am not sure if that is correct)
Now after installation the light was working fine, but now a couple of months later the light is glowing on an off (poltergeist) and I took it down and there looks like some brown burn marks. Is it time to call in an electrician?
I have thus turned out the light and not using till I get this resolved. I do not need to burn down our home.
