We just bought a house that is 6 years old. It seems that the hall lights burn out frequently. I change the fixture because I thought it was a cheap light fixture. When I took the old fixture down, there were four wires-2 black, 1 white and 1 red. I connected what I thought was proper but, I still don't have any light. How do I check to see which wires are the right ones? Why are there so many wires? Please help.

You should have connected the same wire(s) that were connected to the old light
fixture. Without seeing what you have it would be very difficult for anyone to give you information that would be safe for you to
do. My guess for all the wires is that this
light is controlled by a pair of three-way
switches. You may have to hire an electrician
to rectify your problem.
