How do I connect wiring in my ceiling junction box?
I tried pretty much every combination possible to hook up a 2-light ceiling fixture in the hallway, and none are working. I found out that now the bathroom light right off that hallway is no longer working too…
Electrical Question from Tana about Electrical Wiring
Question: Coming from the ceiling are 2 sets of wires. 1 wire is white, and the other 3 are black. The white wire is the only hot one, which I checked with a voltage checker… I tried pretty much every combination possible to hook up a 2-light ceiling fixture in the hallway, and none are working. I found out that now the bathroom light, right off that hallway is no longer working too. Any suggestions?

The Safest Way to Test Electrical Devices and Identify Electric Wiring!The Non-Contact Electrical Tester
This is a testing tool that I have had in my personal electrical tool pouch for years, and is the first test tool I grab to help identify electrical wiring. It is a Non-contact tester, [amazon.com], I use for the detection of Standard Voltage in Cables, Cords, Circuit Breakers, Lighting Fixtures, Switches, Outlets and Wires. Simply insert the end of the tester into an outlet, lamp socket, or hold the end of the tester against the wire you wish to test. Very handy and easy to use.
