Subject: chandelier move

Name: Kent

Question: I moved the chandelier in our dining room. It is connected to two (three-way?)switches. The house is 23 years old. There are two cables that come into the ceiling box. One is a piece of romex with a black, a white, and a ground. The other cable from the other switch has a red, a black, a white and a ground. How do I attach them properly to hang the new chandelier? Thanks for your anticipated help.Kent

Answer: Hi Kent,Without a tester I can't be 100% sure this will work. It sounds like the Black and White coming into the box is your feed and the Black, White and Red wire is you switch leg. If I'm correct you will match all like colors in the box. You light will attach to with White to White and Black(from light) to Red (from box).
