Subject: replacing a hallway ceiling light

Name: dave

Question: hi,
i am replacing a hallway ceiling light. The old light fixture had one black wire ,one white wire and a ground wiring, The box has 4 white wires connected together, two black and one red wire connected together, one other black wire, and a ground wire. The new light has two white and two black wires plus the ground wire. How should they be connected to the box? thanks dave.

Answer: Hi Dave,

You want to match the colors the same way that they are on the light you are replacing. The only difference is your new light will have two wires instead of one.
