    Connect chandelier to the downlight power point

    Hello, We changed plans with lighting in one zone. Now instead of 4 downlights (square shape of 1400mm side) we want a chandelier. Since downlights are already wired and gyprock installed we cannot wire it up separately to the downlights. I asked the supervisor to not drill holes so we can do...

    Screwfix VTAC vs Saxby Downlights = nearly identical

    Turn up to look at 2 downlights not working at a recent kitchen job by someone else. Get one out, it's one of the Screwfix VTAC 10 for £70 little delights. Lots of builders seem to buy these. I know from past experience Screwfix they don't sell single units. But I have this eerie feeling I've...

    replacing downlight fitting - safe?

    Hello all. I have this downlight where the bulb went a while ago and I replaced the bulb myself. I'd never dealt with these type of lights before so I thought the holder had to be pulled out. So I replaced the bulb but then when tried to re-insert the holder, the clips kept flying off, one flew...

    Can i replace a Downlight with one different to the rest?

    Hi, I've got 6 Luceco downlights in my cellar. One is now flashing on & off. I've taken it out & can see that it's a contained unit, I can't replace the bulb. Is it possible to buy a different Downlight to replace or do I have to buy the same model? Thank you.

    LED Recessed Downlight with dim "ring" around the edge

    i walked a model home yesterday and it had been fitted with can lights that had a typical downlight, but the standard downlight trim would also emit a soft glow around the edge as an option as well. Basically the light switch toggled between those options: Downlight on, dim edge glowing only...

    Can I DIY replace downlight transformer?

    Yes I know what the answer is and you're going to shoot me down in flames... but I'm tired of calling in a sparky every time one of my downlight transformers die. I've seen how they work and how he screws the wires back in .... how unsafe is it for me to replace one of these myself and match...

    Are these cables too close to an LED downlight?

    I'm fairly certain the answer is yes. But I've drilled a hole for an LED downlight and unfortunately it's busy with cables. Moving it will be a hassle due to the spacing of the other lights, just before I do - are the LED lights somehow such low temp that I could in fact just keep it here...

The plasterer has gracefully removed the lamp and pushed the cables up into the loft. In the loft I now have a cable coming from the bedroom light switch and a second cable...
