Issue by Icpeatr: I can not explain to what wire is white and which is black?
I am replacing a ceiling gentle and can not explain to which wire is black and which is white. The two wires in the ceiling are black (material covering rubber, covering wire). wires on the outdated fixture are brown a single has a white stripe heading down it. Is the a single with the stripe suppose to be linked to the white wire? What would take place if they have been hooked up improper?
Thanks w61earl that is what i imagined! I acquired the gentle up now! It operates excellent and no hearth but…..

The wire with the white stripe will be the white a single. Hooking it up backwards is a slight hearth hazard, but would not have an effect on efficiency.
