how to wire a light bulb holder
how to wire a light bulb holder? I’ve got a camping swag type pendant light fixture which I like to hard cable in to the ceiling. I cut the plug off of the light fixture cord and ” cable ” it straight to the neutral and hot cables within the ceiling fixture recess.
I ensured the neutral and hot wires went to the related terminals within the lamp holder. There’s a floor cable within the ceiling recess, I haven’t touched this as my wiring does not have a ground and i’m not sure how to deal with this.
There are a few things to remember when wiring ES or E27 light bulb holder and here we will try to give you some help. Screw type lampholder normally come in 3 parts, the cap or bottom part, the centre part or connection for the wires and the skirt or top part. There will be several different styles but the principle will always be the same.
With all screw type light bulb holder its important to connect the live wire (Brown) to the centre pin of the lamp holder. The best way to do this is to find the centre pin, follow the metal back to the point it connects to the screw terminal on the other side. This is the Live terminal.
