    Mr

    Here is a simple question that I need help with if someone would oblige please?

    I am re-wiring a ceiling hanging light, I have followed the installation guide but when the power is restored I can not turn the offending light off! Would someone be able to tell where it is that I am going wrong?

    Thank you very much

    Re: Mr

    I'm not a native speaker, but obviously you have bypassed the switch by connecting the wire, which carries the current straight to the lamp.
    That's why it's on all the time.

    Another reason for that could be malfunctioning switch, but I doubt that.
    Check the right order of wires.

    Native-speakers please heeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeelp

    If you've wired it correctly and it still doesn't work, then you may want to check with the store. Maybe it's not compatible.

    As this is a forum for learning English, the chances of someone here being able to help with this query are fairly remote I'm afraid. However, I wish you luck in your quest.
