The electrician installed a new wall switch in the kitchen, so that when I replace the fluorescent light, it can be turned on and off at the wall switch.
I am ready to install the new light.
In the ceiling, there is a bare copper wire that I am assuming is the ground and will be wired to a screw on the light fixture. There is a white wire – neutral, and a black wire- hot, and I know to wire white to white and black to black.
However, there is a second white wire and a second black wire, and they are wired together with a cap on them, and I am not sure how to connect those.
Also in the ceiling is an old two-pronged plug where you could plug something in, although I am not sure what you would ever plug in there. But perhaps the second black and white wires are for that plug, and the electrician just capped them together temporarily because they come from the same outlet.
So do I just connect all three whites and all three blacks together?
