I just purchased a new ceiling light fixture to replace one that looks to be about 15-20 years old. When uninstalling the old one, there is one white, and one black wire connected (white to white, black to black). My new fixture has two white wires, and two black wires. How do I connect this extra pair of wires?
Twist the two black wires on the fixture together,twist the two white fixture wires together.The single black wire from the ceiling connects to the twisted blacks(three black wires under one wire nut).And your single white from the ceiling goes to the pair of white fixture wires(again,three whites under another wire nut).
Problem installing new light fixture with old switch...
