Im trying to replace a bathroom ceiling light. The light fixture

Customer Question

I'm trying to replace a bathroom ceiling light. The light fixture has one blue and one white wire, the main wires are red and black. Can you tell me which ones are live and which are neutral?

Welcome. My name is XXXXX XXXXX would be glad to assist.

Whee was the light purchased? In the UK or on line?

White is not a standard in the UK, so I see your situation.

Can you trace the wires to the bulb sockets? See which wire connects to the center point of the bulb socket and which one connects to the Shell?

Let me know, we can continue, thanks

Oh I've done it now Tommy and it seems to be working. Answer was a little slower than I had to patience for, thanks.

Ok, glad you have it all working now.

I just came on line and saw your question, sometimes they are not as many experts on line.

Take care.
