I'm in the process of upgrading our ceiling lights in our rather old home. The wiring of the lights in the house pre-dates 1977 and therefore the colours are slightly different which I'll list below.
- Live = Red
- Black = Neutral
- Earth = Green
- Live = Brown
- Blue = Neutral
- Earth = Green/Yellow
Below is a picture of the wiring in question.
The diagram below for easier viewing, notice that the neutral wire of the bulb is paired with the switch (Live) and that the bulb live is paired with the neutral in and out.
It is my understanding, the little I have is that it should look something like this:
My question is…
Is this safe? is this even possible?
