Modern ceiling lights, you have a new and modern look. So let's get started always start every single electrical project by turning the power off at the circuit breaker or your fuse box. Double check that the power is off by flipping the switch on and checking that the light doesn't turn on carefully remove the old shade. So, in this case, the shade is just attached to the fixture with these tabs on. So I'm just going to remove this glass shade and back there are some nasty bugs inside there. One little step that I like to take is twofold take the light bulbs out because they're made out of glass and they will shatter and if you prayed to them. Yes, I've found this out the hard way. The other extra tip is to use blue tape to hold the old fixture to the ceiling while you lower it down. I like there to be slack in the tape so that I can lower the lampshade down about four to six inches. The fixture is held to the junction box with two screws, and in this case, these screws actually have nuts on them. So all you have to do is loosen the nuts or the screws, whichever one you have to lower the fixture down from the junction box with the two nuts removed.
Last, now I can take the fixture off the ceiling and remove all the blue tape. Oops almost there's well ground, there's one ground wire connecting the lamp to the bracket here, so I just need to take that off or cut it off, whichever remove the old mounting bracket using a flathead, screwdriver or Phillips head screwdriver, whichever you have or whatever screw You have that's holding this bracket to the junction box. You know what one extra step that I forgot to tell you about. When you lower the light down, you can actually stick a voltage detector in between the light and touch the wires and see if they're living. So this is just one extra precautionary step to ensure that you don't get electrocuted so sure enough, even though I've been handling these wires for a few minutes, they're not live, but I wanted to tell you about using a voltage detector now, it's time to take the Mounting bracket for the new light, have the green ground screw facing you and take the longer mounting screws and place them into the inside holes. So this hole here in this hole here, because you're going to use these mounting screws to mount the light to the bracket.
the next step is to wire all the hot wires together. So in this case, I'm going to wire the black wires from the light together and the hot wire that we're going to be using is the red-hot wire. So I'm going to be just wiring, the red-hot wire, with the black wires from the light because that's what fits the configuration of my setup, yours could be different, so make sure you follow the directions that come with your light. Try to wrap the wires from the light to the wires in the junction box by about one to two revolutions and then twist on the wire nut again and then. Finally, we don't use the black wires that are up in the junction box, they're pigtailed together to make the electrical connection, but they don't really. They don't touch the wires that are coming from the light fixture. So again, we've got all the ground wires wire together. All the hot wires from the light wire to the red wire coming from the junction box and then all the white wires from the light connect it to the white wires in the junction box and all the black wires in the junction box.
