Voltage meter shows hot wires when tested. After hooking up chandelier, no light and voltage meter shows NO 110-120. I switch the connections... same deal. I have ground wire screwed to junction box. I tested chandelier before hanging and did get it to light. Thanks for any help. getting frustrated Steve
Did you say that the 120-120 comes back when you unhook the wires for the purpose of switching the connections? (And goes away again when you finish switching the connections?)
If you jiggle the wires does th light come on? Could be a broken wires inside the insulation.
Be sure you measure between hot and neutral, not hot and ground.
The average homeowner who lost his house in the Oklahoma tornadoes should move for good and not rebuild. Too much complexity watchdogging the contractor. Too much a chance to be defrauded.
